Surrounded by the foothills of Temecula Valley, Galway Downs in Temecula, California, hosted the Galway Downs International Horse Trials two weeks ago. The nearly 300 riders in attendance competing in Novice through Intermediate horse trials and CIC*, CIC2*, and Adequan USEA Gold Cup CIC3* divisions enjoyed the sunny skies and balmy temperatures that Southern California is known for this time of year. Soak up some of that sunshine by taking a look through the lens of the USEA. Want to catch up on all the action from the event?
