By From page B8 | November 13, 2012

Equestrian Rowen Foley, a Davis High senior, competed at the recent Starr 4 Sacramento Area Hunter-Jumper Association Championship Tie Breaker show in Elk Grove, capturing several top-five finishes.

After a slow start on the first day of the competition, taking a single fifth-place ribbon, Foley and her horse Amazing Grace rallied on Day 2. Horse and rider competed for the first time at the 3-foot jump height, and earned two third-place finishes in the 2-foot, 9-inch to 3-foot Child/Adult Hunters and the Child/Adult Medal Class.

Foley also rode her way to a silver medal in the Child/Adult Handy class, and beat out nine other riders to place second in the SAHJA Mini-Medal qualifier.
