When the bugle sounds and 13-year-old Pamela Phillips enters the bright show ring, she will face the final test of a challenging year. Pamela, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Phillips of Stamford, Conn., has been riding since she was 6. By capturing the blue ribbon at Piping Rock this September, she earned the right to compete in the important ASPCA horsemanship class. If her black gelding Burnable behaves in his first encounter with Garden lights, this year's National Horse Show could see Pamela's biggest win. For a look at some of her skilled competition and a comprehensive preview of the Horse Show, see page 37.
