Martin Collins is proud to the the Official Footing Supplier for Sonoma Horse Park.
A delighted Tonya Johnston and her new partner Galactic (aka Cosmo) impressed the judges in the $5,000 Circle Oak Equine Junior/Amateur Hunter Derby; with a first round score and handy round score of 184 their total score of 368 was impossible to beat. Even more impressive when you hear that this is only their 4th show together. Cosmo and Tonya only began their partnership in February of this year when she purchased and imported this lovely gelding.
“Cosmo only turned 6-years-old in March, Tonya explained, “Hope Glynn took him to the Oaks and he was Champion 6 and Under and won the Young Hunter Classic, we thought wow we are off to a great start. He is such a lovely horse you could take him home to sit on your couch and watch TV, he really is that sweet. Building our relationship is super fun and he is such a nice kind guy. Cosmo is brave and all the things you would want, I am so lucky, he is very special and an old soul. Especially as I have never owned my own horse before I am so relishing having this relationship.” Tonya plans to continue on in the 3’3″ division and continue to steadily build their relationship.
Avery Glynn and Back in Business finished on a total score of 330 to take home the second place ribbon and Margrethe Peggy Munkdale ended on 327 to earn the third place ribbon.
