Free­dom Hills Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing Stu­dents made an out­stand­ing show­ing at the Maryland Spe­cial Olympics Eques­trian Sports early this month.

Free­dom Hills TRP trans­ported four of their won­der­ful mounts to the Prince Ge­orge’s Eques­trian Cen­ter in Up­per Marl­boro. The ath­letes came the next day to com­pete. Some of the TRP ath­letes com­peted in both Spe­cial Olympics and the Maryland Chal­lenge Eques­trian Tri­als which were held the next day.

Cheyenne Keene, from Ris­ing Sun, rode Sunny Bunny to win a sil­ver medal in Trail and sixth in both Bar­rels and Equi­tation but they came back with a vengeance on Sun­day by tak­ing first place in Key­hole, se­cond in Trail and fourth in Equi­tation.

Robert Evans from Ox­ford, Pa., was the Cham­pion of the Day in the MCET Games as he won all of the classes he com­peted in. Dur­ing the Spe­cial Olympics he won gold and sil­ver medals.

Casey Sin­gle­ton also from Ox­ford, Pa., won rib­bons in all of her com­pe­ti­tions.
