SHOW JUMPING RETURNS TO EQUESTRIAN PARK
What promises to be a very busy season of show jumping got its start last week, as the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park in Palgrave hosted the Classic at Palgrave Phase 1. The final event of the week was the $50,000 RAM Equestrian Grand Prix. Christian Sorensen of Caledon was competing on Zellobee. He completed the course without knocking down any rails, but he took about a second and a half too long to do it. The event was won by Conor Swail. Turn to Sports section for more on the event.
