Two California-based rider pairs fare well at one of the world’s toughest events.

The West Coast was well-represented at late-April’s Land Rover Kentucky CCI5*, one of only six such competitions in the world. Andrea Baxter and Indy 500 finished 18th and Hawley Bennett-Awad and Jollybo were 20th in a field of the world’s best. Thanks to Sherry Stewart for these photos of the “Westies.”

Along with advancing in her own international career, Andrea is a principal in and trainer at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles. The Baxter family’s always-improving venue has been helping West Coast pairs hone their skills and gain international mileage and points for many years. Next, Twin hosts the Area VI Young Riders Summer Camp, June 27-30, then the Summer Horse Trials July 5-7.

Hawley Bennett-Awad is a Canadian Olympian, based at Copper Meadows Eventing in Ramona.

Kudos to both and the teams supporting them.
