Rancho Santa Fe resident chosen to compete in 2015 U.S. Saddle Seat Invitational

Victoria Walz

Victoria Walz of Rancho Santa Fe was selected from a field of accomplished riders to represent the United States in International Competition during the 2015 U.S. Saddle Seat Invitational to be held June 25-28 in New Orleans.

As a member of the Young Riders Home Team, Victoria Walz will be competing against riders from South Africa and Canada. These riders will have limited practice on unfamiliar horses before competing on this international level. After a grueling and competitive four days of competition, the winners are crowned with gold medals much like the Olympic Athletes.
