Local riders win equestrian team honors at the Stanford Invitational


Four local teenagers rode to victory at the Stanford Invitational equestrian event this past Sunday at the Stanford Barn. Several teams competed and, after a grueling competition, the Blackstone Farm team took the ribbons.

The events included: a five bar competition -- judges raised the jumps higher and higher eliminating horses as they knocked down rails; a relay with two horses -- fastest team through a jump course without knocking rails; and a speed class -- fastest horse through a jump course.

Members of the winning team were:

Samantha Steiny, 19, a resident of Atherton and a student at Cal; Lindsay Corley 18, a resident of Woodside and a student of Cal; Nick Wells, 15, a resident of Palo Alto and a student of Palo Alto High; and Peri Steiny, 17, a resident of Atherton and a student at Menlo School.

Andrea Correll is the trainer of the Blackstone Farm team.
