Californians Conquer Inavale T3D


Tristen Hooks, Sierra Mathias, and Anna Medina made their 600+ mile journeys from California to Philomath, Oregon for the SmartPak Equine/USEA Training Three-Day Event at Inavale Horse Trials count as the trio earned the top three placings in the event. Tristen Hooks, DVM riding her own Holsteiner/Dutch Warmblood gelding, Learning To Fly, travelled 15 hours from San Luis Obispo, CA to earn the blue ribbon in her third Training Three-Day competition. Tristen and “Fly” added only a few time penalties on Phase D to their first placed dressage score to win the T3D. Sierra Mathias and Regal Exit moved up from a tie for fourth with 4.4 time penalties and a double clear show jumping. Anna Medina and Nanook started the weekend in seventh, but finished comfortably in third. Inavale was the fourth Training Three-Day in the SmartPak Equine/USEA Classic Series.

Believing in the Horse Nobody Believed In: Cooley Quicksilver

This story first appeared in the August 2022 issue of Sidelines Magazine.

I have had many young horses in my time, and one thing I’ve learned is that it’s rarely the perfect, easy baby that becomes the next superstar. In fact, I’ve always considered it a positive to have the well-behaved youngster throw a little bit of attitude my way, as I believe that it takes fight to become a great event horse.
