Wolin Wins USAE Saddle Seat Adult Amateur Medal Final
By Christy Judd O’Donnell
The Third USA Equestrian Saddle Seat Adult Amateur Medal Final returned to
the 67th Annual Junior League Horse Show in Lexington, KY on July 11. This
relatively new event affords an opportunity for adult equitation riders to
pursue a coveted USAE Medal Finals title.
The competitors in this year’s event were strong, as many had completed
successful equitation careers in the Junior exhibitor ranks. Many also
have carried that success into the Adult Equitation division.
For 2003, the top competitor was Dr. Morgan Wolin of Chicago, IL. Wolin
has been riding equitation since the 1970s and has competed in the event
since its inception. She has consistently improved her placing, earning
the title of Reserve National Finals Champion last year. But 2003 was
her year, as a top performance garnered her the Championship title at last.
Wolin was clearly overjoyed when she realized that the coveted title was
hers. Her dark suit and jet black hair were a perfect match for her elegant
black mount, CF Cool Night Out.
