Land O’ Lakes’ 13-year-old Carly McCreery competed April 28 at the jumper competition at Fannin Hill Farm in Brooksville. It was the first time she has competed at the 2-foot-6 level, and the Pine View Middle seventh-grader and her horse Miney took first place in all four classes. She bested her competition in her jump-off by 5 seconds despite losing her stirrup after the fourth jump.
McCreery is trained by Deborah Glover of Glover’s Stables in Spring Hill. She is working toward a career in professional jumping, with hopes of joining the U.S. Olympic Equestrian team and the Grand Prix circuit.
