“The class was a huge success, and it has been growing bigger each year,” said Baker, whose training barn is located at the LAEC. “Everybody is really excited about it. There is no other trail class around that can match it!”

The High Scoring Basic Rider and the Youngest Rider Award in the class went to Hayden Moeck, 11, on Julias Elegant Star, owned and trained by Baker. He won a custom pair of spurs made by Abby Cosenza that Baker donates each year in memory of her good friend and client, Fiona Field, Who passed away April 2012 from breast cancer.

“The day that he won them, Aug. 18 — the final day of the classic –would have been her 44th birthday,” Baker said.
