Hunter/Jumper: Penn Natoinal: All Aboard Scores Pennsylvania National Horse Show Sidesaddle Championship - by Esther Morgan

Harrisburg, Penn. - October 20, 2010 - All Aboard turned in a sidesaddle performance with Jill Wilson today that will be a ride to remember. The 16-year-old gray gelding earned the tricolor during what may be his final Harrisburg championship with Wilson, his Louisa County, Virginia-partner who is moving on to a new horse.

Scoring the top points in the Sidesaddle division, All Aboard, owned by Sally Lamb of Gordonsville, Va. turned in flawless trips, winning the under saddle and over fences classes.

"I've never done this well; this week has been awesome," explained Wilson. "This might be my last year on this horse. If so, this is a good way to end - it's a sweet ending," she said. "Harrisburg is special to this horse. He floats when he gets here. I love him to death - he taught me how to do this. He put up with my mistakes - he's a saint."

The Sidesaddle Reserve Champion was awarded to Miss Brittney, owned and ridden by Jeanne Blackwell of The Plains, Va.

The Pennsylvania National Horse Show (PNHS) continues through Saturday, October 23. Special attractions include Thursday night's Pennsylvania Big Jump, Friday's carriage racing, and the grand finale, Saturday's $75,000 Grand Prix de Penn National.
