Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding students bring home medals
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.
Matthew Pedone, from Frederica, Del., was outstanding in his class as he won gold in Trail, gold in Barrel Racing and silver in Equitation.
Amy Mckee, from Belcamp, won first place in Equitation, second in Barrel Racing and second in Trail.
