Santa Cruz resident George Hall teamed up with Fairfield’s John Hall on Courage to finish in sixth place during the 25-mile Cache Creek Ride and Tie on Sunday in Williams.
Rufus Schneider of Alpine and her partner Beth Love of Lakeside were first place on their 16-year-old gelding Temperance.
Heat was a factor during the day. John Hall was hospitalized after the race due to heat exhaustion and dehydration. Courage had no problem with the heat despite living on the relatively cool central coast. Courage is owned by Steve Shaw of Aptos. Finishing times are not available.
