Ashlee Bond & Chela L-S Take the Win at the Grand Prix of Huntington Beach

Susan Artes Holds onto the Lead in $260,000 GGT Grand Prix Series

Huntington Beach, CA – The fourth event in the $260,000 GGT Grand Prix Series drew a great crowd, and the riders did not disappoint with 4 clear rounds moving into the jump off. Ashlee Bond and Chela L-S took the win with a fast double clear, capturing the blue ribbon and moving into third in the current GGT Series standings. “Chela L-S is a hot, but careful horse and it’s so fun to gallup around with her and let her take the fences as they come. It was a tough course and was great practice for the World Cups coming up. This is a great venue with world-class footing and you can’t ask for better than that.”
