DRYDEN — Dryden’s Teagan O’Bryan saw to it that she would succeed, bringi ng home a placewinning performance at her first competition of the year for the KMSA (Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse Association, a show circuit, based primarily in Kentucky).

This show was contested in Harrodsburg, Kentucky at the Mercer County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 20. It was a smaller show due to it being the first competition of the year, with approximately 80 or so people attending.

O’Bryan placed third in the Trail Pleasure class on RSR’s Prince George and competed with around 20 horses for the day.

“I really enjoyed being able to go out and compete and participate in something I love even if we got a bit of a late start,” O’Bryan said. “We are working to get our horses ready to compete again for our next show in Shelbyville, Kentucky on July 18,” she noted.

“I will be competing again in Trail Pleasure, as well as Classic Pleasure. We are also working to get our horses prepared to compete at an international show at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington this fall.”
