his students walked away with their own tri-colors.

working division. He also swept the second year green division with
the championship on Lynn Walshs Ocean Park and the reserve
on Marianne Cochrans The Dinner Guest. But the winning didnt
stop there. On Gail J. Serrells Speaking Of Pletcher took
home another championship in the first year green-b division. Rounding
out the tri-colors was Nancy J. Shaws Deveraux, reserve champion
in the Pre-Green division.

said. His students also took home armloads of ribbons. Laurie Lewis
was champion in the Amateur Owner 36 and over division with Lifestyle.

jumper ring with two grand prix horses. A few months ago Pletcher
began riding Alex Dillards Charmed and just this week began
working with Samurai, another top jumper mount, owned by Jim and
Rhonda Conley of Conley Classics.
