THERMAL, Calif. – February 21, 2020 – It was a team effort for Nicole Wilson, Marisa Metzger, and Centerfold K to come out on top in the $2,000 Pro/Am Low Hunter Challenge, sponsored by El Paseo Jewelery. Nicole Wilson (Vail, CO) rode Centerfold K in the first round of the class to a score of an 86.

Briteney Mercer (Seattle, WA) and Dustin Goodwin (Portland, OR) rode Testify, owned by Briteney Mercer to an overall third place finish with their combined efforts.
“This girl put a lot of pressure on me with her score of an 86 this morning.

I have to say it’s almost more pressure because we don’t want to let them [the first round riders] down.”
