MeadowCreek Park in Kosse, Texas (Area V) hosts two USEA recognized events in March and September, offering Starter through Intermediate/Preliminary levels at both events and an Intercollegiate Team Challenge and FEH/YEH divisions at their spring event.
The MeadowCreek Park Horse Trials was founded on 100 acres outside of Kosse, Texas by Sam and Jodye Lindsey in 1991. With the help of prominent Area V eventer Alyce Hinkle, the Lindseys turned MeadowCreek Park into a premiere eventing venue and hosted their first horse trials at the park in 1992. After 20 successful years of running the MeadowCreek Park Horse Trials, they passed the baton to Robbie and Brad Peterson.
With a career spanning ten years and over seventy competitions from the Novice to Two-star levels, the veteran Thoroughbred, Much Ado II, used his considerable experience to partner with Brooke Baker to take home the blue ribbon in the SmartPak Equine/USEA Training Three-Day at Texas Lions Camp Charity H.T. at Meadowcreek in Kosse, Texas last weekend.
Gabby Stephens riding her own Irish Draught Sport Horse/Arabian, Glenlord's Mystique, won the first USEA Young Event Horse Competition of the year at Meadow Creek Park. The four-year-old mare was sired by RID Bridon Glenlord and out of MyLadyOfTheKnight and was bred by Kelly Jones. Glenlord’s Mystique scored a 69.9 beating out the second-placed finishers, Nanette Koepp and Izzabella by only .7 points. Bethany Cobb and BJC Asher Seven rounded out the top three.
Age was truly no boundary at the SmartPak Equine/USEA Training Three-Day at Meadowcreek Horse Trials in Kosse, Texas. Forty-five years of age difference separated the top two riders, but less than three penalty points separated their final standings. Fifteen riders started the competition with 12 completing.
A single rail decided the winner of the SmartPak Equine/USEA Training Three-Day event at the Texas Lions Camp Charity Horse Trials on May 22-24 in Kosse, TX.
