In a field of roses, always be the wacky sunflower.
We can only assume that’s the driving force behind this magical moment, where a show, a rider, and a photographer agreed that the best way to celebrate the USHJA National Hunter Derby winner at week three of the summer series was this:
Euro D’Hyrencourt (known affectionately around the barn as “Ro-Ro”) was the winner of “Camp S’mores Week” Derby at Fox Lea Farm, piloted by our own regular contributor Dominique Gonzalez of San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The seven-year-old warmblood owned by Wadsworth Equestrian put in a stellar performance over two rounds to finish the day on a 174.5. And in our humble opinion, the victory shot says it all.
Dominique was nothing but a load of gratitude to all the people and creatures who aided her in this big moment.
