WATSONVILLE — Quinn Durbin has been riding horses since she was three, Quinn, 9, of Brentwood, said she appreciates the challenge of keeping her pony under control as she competes in equitation and hunter-jumper events.

Hard pressed to choose a favorite aspect of her hobby, however, she said she loves “everything” about horses.

Quinn was competing Thursday, July 10, in the Almaden Farms Summer Horse Shows medal finals at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, a two-week event that drew more than 150 horses and hundreds of riders and trainers.

In its 34th year at the fairgrounds, the event is an important one in the equestrian community, said announcer Chelsea Stone.
