Both competitions where held at the Iron Horse Equestrian Complex in Milton, ON.

“Winston has turned out to be such a special horse and over the last year under the guidance and training of the Irwins, Tina and her husband Jaimie, has developed into every horse owner’s dream. He combines rideability, soundness, and talent all in one beautiful package,” said Horgan. “We are all a team (Team Irwin) and appreciate Omega Alpha recognizing our efforts.”
