By Hannah SladeThe Area IX season is now well underway, and the juniors and young riders are proving to be a force to be reckoned with on the leaderboards. As a young rider myself at 15, it’s pleasing to see my fellow young rider teammates be so successful. It’s astonishing to watch the young riders and their horses lead the divisions from start to finish. From Beginner Novice to Preliminary, the Area IX young riders are frequently at the top of the pack, and more often than not, maintain the lead throughout the jumping phases.
