Tyler Francis Talks About His Experience with the 2016 Michael Nyuis Scholarship

13087517_1123131194416534_320059081229350309_nOver the weekend of April 22-24 I was able to compete at the Los Angeles Equestrian Festival put on by West Palms Events. At the beginning of this show season I was not planning on competing at this show, but receiving the Michael Nyuis Scholarship opened a door of opportunity that made it possible.

As we drove to Los Angeles from Orange County the Friday morning of the show I was already anticipating what the show and venue would be like, as I had only competed at the LAEC once before. I was given the opportunity to ride “Mile High”, owned by Kale Ostler, in my classes throughout the weekend under the guidance of Michael León. I had never ridden him prior to my first day showing him, but due to his talent and bravery it turned out to be an amazing experience. My goal going into the weekend was to gain points in the equitation medals, in attempt to qualify for the finals later this year. I was able to achieve this goal by qualifying for the CPHA Foundation medal, as well as gaining points towards the CPHA Junior Medal. To add to my excitement of the weekend, Mile High also received champion in the Junior Hunter division, qualifying him for Junior Hunter Finals in July.

To say the show was an unbelievable experience would be an understatement, and it would not have been possible without receiving the Michael Nyuis Scholarship. From the awards to the lounge area (which was incredibly comfortable), the attention to detail West Palms had at the show was very obvious, and these details added to my overall experience. The weekend would not have been possible without everyone at Windsor Stables, Michael León, and Heatherly Davis, and I greatly appreciate all that they did. I would like to thank everyone at West Palms Events for awarding me the Michael Nyuis Scholarship, as it is helping me achieve my goals in the equestrian world.
