The competition is over and in the books. It seemed to have been a long hard fought battle but Martina Peters prevailed with the All Around National Champion. This is a well deserved accomplishment. If you will notice in my earlier post, the photo of Martina riding Chance while at the Regional competition at Ft Concho in San Angelo, Texas. Mrs Peters rides for Ft Quachucha in Arizona. Martina won the Military Horsemanship, and combat horsemanship. She placed in several other areas that gave her enough points to win the overall championship. He performance demonstrated an all around performance. Martina was riding Apache. A 22 year old sorrel gelding.

John Brownrigg was Martina’s toughest competition. John won the Pistols, Sabers and the Bolte Cup. The Bolte Cup does not count toward the National All Round Championship.

John has won the National championship 3 times previously. This is Martina’s first time.

I met Martina in 2010 while the Nationals where at Ft Concho. At the time I was riding my Bay tobiano Paint Stallion named Cherokee in this competition. I had lost my competition mount 2 weeks before. His name was Tudor. Cherokee was in retirement and his performance showed it. Martina walked by and said something to the effect he was pretty boy. I said thank you. She promptly told me she was talking to him and not  me. I just replied by saying, “I know”. That was my introduction to Mrs Peters. Today I consider her and her husband George good friends. She is an excellent horseperson as I have seen her ride different horses throughout the years and always perform good. It was my honor to have her ride my horse, Chance , at the Regionals. She won the all around there also.

This is a well deserved honor for Martina. I know Ft Quachucha is very proud of her as well as the rest of the Military community.

Well Done Martina.

Martina and Chance

    Thanks Rick, I am very blessed and grateful that I am able to participate in the National and Regional Cavalry Competition every year. I met so many good people and made lifelong friends. I never dreamed to raise to the top. The challenge now is to keep up the same level. I’m hopeful to do so with our thoroughbred Henry who could not complete this year because of colic surgery.
    I missed you at El Reno this year. It was the first competition without you there and it’s not the same!
