Lexington, KY July 31, 2008 It was a very late day for the professional hunter divisions at the Kentucky Summer Horse Show. Bad weather last night caused multiple ring changes and class delays at the Kentucky Horse Park. The morning began with light rain but cleared up for a bright sunny day in the afternoon. The First Year Green Working Hunters began at 3 p.m. after the completion of the Pre-Green Hunters in the Indoor Arena.

The championship award went to Penny Lombardo and Bring It On, a 6-year-old Holsteiner gelding, in the First Year Green Working Hunters. The reserve championship tricolor was awarded to Terry Brown and her mount Ferragamo, owned by Libba Fisher of Alpharetta, GA.

Lombardo was thrilled with Bring It Ons performance. My courses yesterday were very smooth. He was very nice and hes got a wonderful, long stride. It makes you smile going around the ring, laughed Lombardo. Hes just got a great rhythm and hes so comfortable. Today he was even better, nice and relaxed in the indoor.

Bring It Ons owner, Ellen St. John of Delray Beach, FL, was also excited about the pairs excellent performance. Hes an incredible horse to own. Hes just a fantastic horse, and Penny has done an incredible job training him, she smiled. Hes so nice to ride and Im really looking forward to showing him in the amateurs.

Next to go were the Green Conformation Hunters. The top prize went to Terry Brown, of Canton, GA, and her horse Tasty, a 7-year-old Dutch Wamblood. Steinway and Kathy OConnor also put in excellent rounds and came away with the reserve championship award. Steinway is owned by Jessica DiCampli of Seabrook, TX.

The Second Year Green Working Hunters followed in the Indoor Arena. Haven Schatt and Glass Castle, owned by Shaw Johnson Price of Chestertown, MD, proved unstoppable with flawless rounds, sweeping the division and taking home the championship ribbon. The reserve championship prize went to All the Best with Megan Udelson, of Russell, OH, in the irons.

The Regular Conformation Hunters and The Regular Working Hunters were the last to go today. Kelly Farmer garnered both championship tricolors. In the Regular Conformation Hunters Farmer won the championship award with Mio, owned by Rosalie Mortin of Charlottesville, VA. The reserve championship award also went to Farmer, this time with her mount Intermezzo, owned by Lucy Blundon of Chevy Chase, MD. Intermezzo then went on to claim the Regular Working Hunter Championship prize. Haven Schatt rode Olivier, owned by Pinecroft, LLC & Annie Frazier of Wellington, FL, to win the reserve championship ribbon.
