Monmouth County Horse Show Recognized as Top Caliber Hunter Competition

Freehold, NJ – August 11, 2006 – The 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show, held at East Freehold Park in New Jersey from August 16-20, 2006, is one of the oldest continuous equestrian events in the country. This USEF “AA” rated competition has been recognized by the American Hunter and Jumper Foundation (AHJF) as one of the nation’s finest equestrian showcases.

Some of the very best hunter professionals attend the Monmouth County Horse Show.
Scott Stewart, Holly Orlando, and Jennifer Alfano are just a few of the nation’s leading riders who will participate in the competition. Other top hunter riders attending include: Jeffrey Ayers, Katie Gerhart, Krista Weisman, Ellen Toon, Stormy Good, Charlie Weaver, Alexandra Arute, Christine Desfor, Emil Spadone, and Carol Hoffman.

Last year, Scott Stewart took home championships in the Second Year Green Working Hunters with Carolyn Kelly’s Cool Blue and in the Regular Working Hunters aboard his own horse Up To Date. He also received top honors in the Green Conformation Working Hunters with Granted. Holly Orlando rode for the tricolor in the Baby Green Hunters on Mary Evangelista’s horse Bolero and was also champion in the First Year Green Working Hunters on Rio Renior, owned by Thomas Deibert. Her ride on Scott Hakim’s horse Wolfgang II also earned the pair the reserve championship in the Regular Working Hunters behind Stewart. These competitive riders will return to the Monmouth County Horse Show in hopes of defending their titles.

The Monmouth County Horse Show is a member of the AHJF’s World Champion Hunter Rider (WCHR) Program and is one of only six such designated events in the Northeast Region. Only forty-five horse shows in the eight different regions across the country meet the high standards required by the American Hunter and Jumper Foundation to receive the World Championship banner. Other shows in the Northeast Region include Fairfield, Old Salem, Skidmore, Lake Placid, and the prestigious Hampton Classic Horse Show.

Each year, the members of the American Hunter and Jumper Foundation are presented with a voting ballot and are asked to select shows which meet the highest standards. Since its beginning, the AHJF has followed a clearly defined set of criteria for designating horse shows to participate in the WCHR program. It is through this program that the exhibitors acknowledge the efforts of show management to meet those high show standards. Good footing, appropriate schooling areas, exhibitor hospitality, appropriate ring size, top judges and officials, responsiveness to exhibitor feedback, parking, and seating are just some of the important facets taken into consideration.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the Monmouth County Horse Show has been selected to participate in this prestigious program.

“The Monmouth County Horse Show has worked hard to meet the criteria for World Championship Hunter Rider recognition,” said Show Manager Leo Conroy. “Monmouth County is a great hunter venue, with wonderful hospitality, good footing and great judges, and we’re happy that the American Hunter and Jumper Foundation has recognized our hard work for the fifth year in a row.”

The WCHR National Awards program recognizes the top Professional, Junior, Adult Amateur, Pony and Amateur riders through points accumulated throughout the year at the rider's top four WCHR shows. These riders are then invited to compete directly against one another in Challenge Classes at the Capital Challenge Horse Show in Upper Marlboro, MD, in October.

In the Professional Division, the top four riders compete in a four rider challenge to determine the Monarch International's Show Circuit Magazine Professional World Championship Hunter Rider.
