Traverse City, MI - July 16, 2015 - The Junior and Amateur/Owner Jumper classes kicked off on Thursday during Week III of the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival at beautiful Flintfields Horse Park just outside of the popular tourist destination of Traverse City, Michigan. Another picture perfect day was especially bright for Alliy Moyer and her horse Etoile Van't Lambroeck who nabbed the win of the High Junior A/Os in the afternoon.
Last to go in the class, there had not yet been one double clear when Moyer and her horse entered the Grand Prix Arena. Her first round was smooth and nearly flawless followed by the singular fault-free jump-off round. Moyer overcame Maria Yzerman and Player de Brocelia and Taylor Reid and Akida, who advanced to the jump off round but both had a rail during the short track and ended second and third respectively.

"I've been working on going fast," said Moyer who rides with Tammy Provost at Meadowview Farm and Wendy Hoffmeister. 'I wanted to keep my momentum. I the jump-off I tried to go extra fast today. We call her Star, I've had her for two and a half to three years. She is such a good girl. She gives me so much confidence. I adore her."
Moyer is a 21-year-old student at University of Indianapolis, where she is studying public relations and environmental science. She currently balances her schoolwork with showing her four horses,
Etoile Van't Lambroeck, Chicco 337, Carlson and Beorn. She competes two in the High A/O Jumpers, one in the A/O Hunters, and one in the Low A/O Jumpers.  

"I'm really looking forward to the Prix on Sunday," she said. "I'm doing the Prix on my two High horses Sunday. Today was a really god warm up. I'm going to do the Welcome tomorrow; they'll have Saturday off then we'll do the Prix Sunday."
Moyer is the sponsor of the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival $15,000 High Junior A/O Jumper Classic during Week IV.
"I think it is so beautiful up here and the facility is great,"she said.  "I have been coming up here since I was a kid. When we get done early we get out on the water. It is just a great place to be."
Out of nearly 30 entries in the Lows Junior A/O Jumpers, 11 horse and rider combinations progressed to the short course with seven double clear. Benjamin Simpkins sped his way to the first two positions on the leaderboard with his mounts Pouquoi Pas Z and Chopin Z respectively. MacKenzie Snider and her Zancantos Z earned third place.

Chopin Z is a 13-year-old I've had for four or five- years he's doing the high amateurs and the small grand prix," Simpkins said. "He's my ribbon machine. The chestnut (Pouquoi Pas Z) is a 7-year-old stallion I bought last summer. They'll both do the Saturday class ($7,500 NAL Low Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic) and that's it. They don't need to do anything else because they were so good today."

This is Simpkins first time competing in the Traverse City circuit and  the one-two finish is a positive way to start off. 

"The courses felt really great today, everything came up really smoothly on both horses," he said. "After a class like that, I can't complain. I hope the next two weeks go like they did today." 

The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival continues tomorrow featuring the $25,000 Welcome Stake in the Grand Prix Arena at 2 p.m.
