Michael Nyuis Foundation Grant Recipient Skylar Wireman Tops the Whitethorne/Elvenstar Open Equitation Tournament

LOS ANGELES — Skylar Wireman continued her winning ways when she captured the Whitethorne/Elvenstar Open Equitation Challenge during the LA June Classic (June 2-5) at Los Angeles Equestrian Center. “Having support from Georgy Maskrey-Segesman and Jim Hagman helps encourage top level riding in Los Angeles,” said Dale Harvey of West Palms Events. “I am really proud of the class, and I am really proud of Skylar, who is a Michael Nyuis Foundation grant recipient.”
Wireman wasn’t done with her winning. She rode Karen, Coolio 23, and King’s Ruby in the Eq Consults Grand Prix, and finished second aboard Karen. Emma Irwin and Chacothago led the grand prix victory gallop.
Hunters had their share of limelight, with Leah Von Henkle piloting Tiffany Kraft’s Givenchy to the top spot in the USHJA National Hunter Derby. The Plaid Horse Carousel Derby, 2′ LEG Up Hunter Derby, and a Pony Hunter Derby gave hunter riders of all levels a chance for fun, great prizes, and a chance to shine.
