I just read the official posted results yesterday, and YES, Colleen did win a number of classes with her Serenity horse, and she, in fact, did have the highest scores of any of the sport horse classes - 4 points higher than any other horse - that deserves considerable congratulations!
And you're right, the only class I saw Colleen compete in was the one in which she took the spill, and I didn't even realize that the horse she was riding there was Serenity Shahr. I sat with Colleen's mom and Nancy Gates for much of the performance classes - both very nice ladies.
For anyone who is keeping records:Serenity Shahr
