Gladstone, NJ – Aug. 20, 2016 – Saturday saw the jumpers return to the ring at Monmouth at the Team with riders hoping to place well towards Sunday’s Classic events and division championship awards. Taegan Long and All Star De L’aube dominated the $500 Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper division sponsored by the Lindner Family, taking home the win in both the power and speed class and the speed class.

Long and her own All Star De L’Aube, a 10-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding were the first pair to jump-off in the power and speed class and broke the beam in 28.032 seconds laying down a time that no one could match. Second placed fini sherErika Christie and her own Fantastique, an 11-year-old KWPN gelding, tried to beat Long’s blazing fast time, but finished just a tenth of a second slower with a time of 28.130 seconds. Rounding out the top three was Kaitlyn Williams and Shaq with a jump off time of 30.199 seconds.

Long was thrilled with her performance Saturday on a relatively new mount. “Everything really went as planned today. I haven’t shown him a lot yet,” Long said. “I just got him after WEF so I’m still getting to know him but he did everything I thought he was going to do today; he was really good.”

Long enjoyed the Skip Bailey designed course and thought it was a good preparation for Sunday’s $10,000 1.30m Horseflight Mini-Prix “I thought the course was really good,” she said. “I thought it was really technical and fun and there was a lot of options which I liked.” Long’s plans for her new mount include an eye towards the North American Young Riders Championships as well as the U-25 Grand Prix classes.

Long has been enjoying her time at Monmouth at the Team and has been very happy with the show. “It’s my first time here and it’s amazing,” she said. “It’s so pretty it makes me want to come do the USET Finals next year. The venue is awesome, there are a lot of great vendors, I’m excited to do the mini prix tomorrow.”

In the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Speed Class Long took the blue again with second place going to Sascha Abramson and her own Ra, a 9-year-old Oldenburg gelding. Bringing home third place was Juliette Jacobson and her own Raihna Das Escolas, a 7-yar-old Argentine Warmblood mare.

Earlier in the morning Ron Neilson and Spalding topped the field in the 1.10m High Child/Adult jumper power and speed class sponsored by Purina. In the speed class Wendy Chapot Nunn and Face Value took home the blue, while spectators in the hospitality tent enjoyed a brunch sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

The afternoon culminated with the 1.0m Jumper Classic, during which spectators enjoyed a Kentucky Derby Day themed party in the hospitality tent sponsored by The Tack Shelter. Alissa B. Kinsey took home the blue in the classic aboard her own Capella 37 a 13-year-old Danish Warmblood mare. Kinsey broke the beam with a jump-off time of 48.664 seconds. Bringing home second place was Carlie Taurosa and her own Explosive, a 7-year-old Warmblood mare. Rounding out the top three was William Rothpletz and his own Raska, a 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding.
Kinsey was happy with her ride on her hot mare Saturday evening. “We’ve had a light two days here, I arrived on Thursday,” Kinsey explained. “She was a little wild tonight! She’s a horse that you just point to the jumps and make a plan and it usually falls into place.”
Kinsey was thrilled with the horse show and being at Hamilton Farm brought back fond memories for her. “It’s beautiful,” she said. “I haven’t been here for about 20 years, back when I did the USET Finals as a junior. It’s really fun to come here and show in the ring again and absorb the whole atmosphere here. They have done such a great job with it. It’s been a treat, it’s been like a little vacation.”
Monmouth at the Team will conclude Sunday with the $10,000 1.30m Horseflight Mini-Prix. Additional highlights on Sunday include High and Low Child/Adult Jumper Classics, the High Pony Jumper Classic, and the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Classic. For additional information please visit
