Ronnie Mutch Run Away Win

Emma Pacyna continued an awesome year, winning the R.W. Ronnie Mutch Equitation Championship at HITS Coachella March 16 by a whopping 19.5 points. Riding her trainer Georgy Maskrey-Segesman’s Constantinos, Emma topped runner-up Augusta Iwasaki and Emma Catherine Reichow. As a trainer’s daughter and working student, Emma wasn’t phased by the Mutch Championship’s requirement of walking the course and warming up her horse on her own, with just a groom to help set jumps. Self-sufficiency has been a hallmark of her whole career.

The win is the latest dream realized for this much-admired, hard-working young rider. In February, she committed to becoming an Oklahoma State Cowgirl Equestrian, a big time dream Emma targeted several years ago. Along with Georgy, Karen Healey, Savannah Jenkins and her mom, Michelle Pacyna, lead the many to share the celebrations.
