Parkside enjoys success and sunshine at HITS Coachella Week IV

Parkside’s first week of competition was a great success filled with sunshine, victories and celebration.  During the pro week we saw many of our horses stepping into new divisions and exceling at new levels. With Championships from the 3’ Low Hunters to the 3’9 Green Hunters our horses and trainers stepped up to the competition.  We had multiple new horse and rider combinations come away with victories after their first rounds in the ring and we also welcome Heather J., a new client, to the Parkside Family.  On Saturday evening the entire barn gathered for a surprise birthday dinner in celebration of our trainer Tory Bova (Happy Birthday Tory!!).  We look forward to next weekend with new horse and rider combinations being paired up and other week in the sunshine!
