Thermal, Calif. – Dec. 11, 2021 – Equitation riders took to the Grand Eq/Jumper 3 Arena on Saturday morning to vie for top honors in the coveted ASPCA Maclay Medal.

The top 13 horse and rider combinations were invited back for a flat test where the judges asked the riders to remove their stirrups from their saddles before entering the ring. Next, they were tested on their flatwork abilities and, in the end, Gable Gering and her new mount, H De Revel, came out on top to take home the victory. Audrey Carmody and Colany 9 took home the red ribbon, while Jake Endicott and Class Act were awarded third place.
