Halifax, MA – August 27, 2013 – Top riders from across New England gathered at the Fieldstone Show Park for the 2013 Massachusetts Hunter Jumper Finals. After working all year to qualify for the prestigious event, riders competed in their respective divisions to earn the championship honors. The Junior Medal was award to Rhian Murphy, while Rebecca Clawson took home the winning honors in the Adult 18-35 Medal Final, presented by Draper Equine Therapies. In the Adult 30 & Over Medal Final, it was Robin Harkins and Swiss Miss taking home the top honors, and Taylor Svenconis led the Mini Medal lap of honor.

The top 11 riders from the Junior Medal Final were invited back for the test. They had to canter the challenging combination line again, roll back to a single vertical, and jump the barrels without standards, all without stirrups. Before cantering back to the lineup, riders had to demonstrate two changes of lead along the long side of the area.

Alexandra Indeglia was the first to return, ranked 11th after the over fences, but she executed a brilliant test aboard Bravo Van De Kwakkelhoek to quickly climb the ranks. The duo found a perfect distance to each fence and easily demonstrated two flying changes of lead. Their effort was good enough to move to the third place position at the end of the day.

Samantha Peck was ranked third with Ensor after the over fences phase, but she also managed to produce a solid test. She rode Ensor confidently through the combination, and smoothly trotted her lead changes. The judge awarded their test with the reserve championship title.

The last two to test were Rhian Murphy with Phantom and, after earning an 88 over fences, they stood at the top of the leader board. The pair was slightly tight to the first fence in the combination, but jumped out easily and smoothly cantered the remaining fences. They then executed two precise changes of lead before joining the other riders. After a good test and brilliant first round, the judge awarded Murphy and Phantom the championship honor.

Ronnie Andersen out of Ronnie Andersen Show Stables, located on the Fieldstone Show Park grounds, trains Murphy—and this was not their only win for the day. Rebecca Clawson also rode to the top of the rankings this afternoon aboard Freeport as she took an 88 over fences in the MHJ Draper Therapies Adult 18-30 Medal Finals. She duplicated her efforts with flawless equitation when brought back at the top of the 12 to test in the under saddle. Clawson held the lead to take home the championship, while Carly Corbacho and Blue Highway rode to the reserve championship.

Trainer Andersen elaborated on the wins Sunday, “They work very hard, and they are great girls with great families. The whole atmosphere here is great—it is such a team spirit. I think that their support is what really plays into it. I am so proud of them. They work hard, it paid off and Sunday was their day."

During the MHJ Mini Medal Final, five riders who all scored over 80 during the over fences were invited back for the flat. First, riders sat the trot to the judge where they answered the question, “How many inches are in a hand?” The riders then had to show at the walk, trot, sitting trot, and canter before trotting into the lineup.

The championship title was awarded to 14-year-old Taylor Svenconis of Londonderry, NH, with her pony King of Spades. The second place award was presented to Emma Fletcher and Always Formal, while Brigitta Shepard and Onno Z took home the third place honors.

The next event in Ring 1 was the MHJ Children’s Horse Medal Final. Danielle McIlquham came out on top with Coco Chanel for the championship, while Sarah Boral and Love On The Rocks were awarded the reserve championship title. Kianna Taylor rounded out the top three with Sinatra.

The MHJ Short Stirrup Medal Final was the first to be completed Sunday in Ring 3. The top 12 riders were invited back for the test, and the winning honors went to Marysa Fernandez and Tiffany, who scored an 85 over fences. Nina Wordell took reserve championship with Strawberry Smoothie, while the third place award went to Victoria Crostin and Pleasant Hills Grayson.

The MHJ Adult Mini Medal Final was next, and this time it was Julia Reaby and Tuscan Sky who scored the top honors and championship ribbon. Sheila Murphy was awarded the reserve championship, while Rebecca Hyde and Emmet took home the third place honors.

Later in the afternoon, Robin Harkins rode Swiss Miss to the first place finish in the MHJ Adult 30 & Over Medal Final, while Ring 3 concluded with the MHJ Pony Medal Final, and after the top 12 returned to test on the flat, it was Sydney North and Sunshine that earned the top call and championship award from the judge. Ava La Plant and Back In Black received the second place award.

Hunter Highlights: Tuesday – Saturday

It was a bittersweet victory for pony ring veterans Ali Tritschler and Dreamland, as they claimed their final win in the $5,000 NEHJA Pony Hunter Classic Final Tuesday at the Fieldstone Show Park. Tritschler piloted Dreamland to the first place finish with two impressive rounds over fences. They nabbed the championship with the high scoring total of 169 points. Alexandra Pielet rode to the second and third place finishes with Qualen’s Commence the Magic and Secret Love, respectively.

Tuesday’s feature event, the $5,000 NEHJA Pony Hunter Classic Final, was a crowd favorite at the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II. Sixteen ponies and their young riders vied for the classic win, but it was ultimately Dreamland with Tritschler in the irons that took home the top prize.

Riding to an impressive score of 81 in the first round was Ellie Ferrigno aboard her own medium pony Clovermeade Dream On, but Tritschler was close on her heels as she navigated Linda Evans’ Dreamland to the high score of 84 points. Annabel Revers and Romeo, owned by Beechwood, rode to a first round score of 80.5, while Abigail Brayman and Jumanji, owned by Skyler Fields, posted an 80. With it being Tritschler’s last Fieldstone Pony Classic, she knew she would have to lay down an equally impressive second round, if not better, to outride her competitors for the win.

The pressure was on for Brayman as she navigated Jumanji around the second course, as one of the top 12 to return. Although they had a speedy pace, a tight distance cost them the win, earning them the score of 81 points.  As the last of the large ponies to show in the second round, Tritschler relied on her consistency and longtime relationship with Dreamland to bring them triumph. Her advantageous guidance in the saddle, as well as her confidence in her mount’s ability to perform, earned then the second round score of 86 points.

Alexandra Pielet and Elizabeth Foster’s Qualen’s Commence the Magic did not hesitate to try to surpass Tritschler’s score. Although it was their first time showing at Fieldstone, the pair rode to the impressive score of 85 points, eventually earning the second place as Tritschler’s 86-point score stood steadfast. Pielet also rode Secret Love, owned by Back Country, to the third place finish with a score of 162 points from their 78 and 84 point two-round total.

In the end, Brayman and Jumanji took home the fourth place award, while Ferrigno picked up the fifth and sixth place awards with Clovermeade Dream On and Clovermade Bunny Side Up, respectively.

It was a perfect day in New England for the horses and riders showing at the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II. Young riders took center stage in the Main Hunter Ring, where Samantha Perlman and McKayla Langmeier kicked things off by scoring wins in the Junior Hunters. It was Annabel Revers and Quebo who took home the top honors though at the end of the day, leading the $1,000 WIHS/NAL Children’s Hunter Classic from start to finish, and capturing the Children’s Hunter Championship.

During the $1,000 WIHS/NAL Children’s Hunter Classic, the top 15 finishers from the first round were invited to return to showcase a second flowing hunter trip. The best of the day proved to be Annabel Revers and Quebo, owned by Beechwood Stables of Beechwood, Ohio. Revers earned the leading score during the first round of 83, but she did not let the pressure of coming back on top phase her. The duo laid down another flawless round, scoring an 86 for a total of 169 and the winning honors. Revers and Quebo’s first round score helped them earn a blue ribbon in the Children’s Hunter division as well, to take home the championship honors.

Revers only began riding Quebo last week, but the pair already has a strong connection. “I really only started riding him at the show, and it was a little rough at first, but I finally figured out that I just need to have the right canter and then the jumps work out,” she explained. “He’s lazy, so he needs a lot of leg. If you have the right canter and have him going then he’s great.”

The second place honors in the $1,000 WIHS/NAL Children’s Hunter Classic went to Sydney Gever of North Caldwell, NJ, and Platini, who earned scores of 73 and 83 for a total of 156. Taking home the third place award was Sophie Purinton and Guiseppe, owned by Joyce Mersereau of Concord, MA, whose consistent scores of 75 and 74 brought their total to 149. Flavey Brennan and Rochambo, owned by Megan Blair of Hingham, MA, rounded out the top four, earning a 69 in the first round, and toping it with a 75 in the second round for a total of 144.

Earlier in the day, the Junior Hunter division got underway with top riders from across the country. The blue ribbon in the first class went to McKayla Langmeier of East Granby, CT, riding Czar-Z. The duo has been winning all over the country this summer, including a recent victory in the $15,000 NEHJA Hunter Derby at Vermont Summer Festival. They used their derby skills in the handy round to earn the second place ribbon, and also placed second in the under saddle.

The winner of the handy class was Samantha Perlman with Moneypenny, owned by Animation of Pleasantville, NY. With smooth inside turns and a precise trot jump, the duo jumped straight to the top of the leader board, after also picking up a fifth place ribbon in the first over fences class.

 

The beautiful New England weather continued as competition in the Junior and Amateur-Owner Hunters concluded during the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II. Lisa Foster and Castlewood proved that they had all the answers in the Amateur-Owner Hunters, winning both over fences classes for the championship award. McKayla Langmeier and Czar-Z were also victorious in both of their over fences classes to take home the Junior Hunter Championship. The day wrapped up with the $1,000 Junior/Amateur-Owner Hunter Classic, where the winning honors went to Michael Renker and Wicked.

Although Renker, of North Hampton, MA, and Wicked entered the $1,000 Junior/Amateur-Owner Hunter Classic with a score of 77 for the first round, they were on point during the second round. They laid down a flawless trip, easily flowing to each fence, which earned a score of 83 for a 160 total, good enough to capture the winning honors.

Lauren Henry of North Kingston, RI, did not leave Renker much room for error. She piloted Esteban La Paz to consistent scores of 79 and 80, for a total of 159 and the second place award. Alexandra Indeglia of North Kingstown, RI rounded out the top three’s very close scores aboard Bravo Van De Kwakkelhoek. The duo earned an 81 and a 77 for a total of 158.

The Amateur-Owner Hunters were the first to compete in the Main Hunter Ring, where Castlewood and Lisa Foster of Dover, MA, dominated the competition, winning both over fences classes Thursday after a blue ribbon in the under saddle yesterday. Their top ribbons helped them earn the division’s championship prize, while Jean Sheptoff of Waltham, MA, and Alavanta picked up the reserve championship.

In the Junior Hunters, it was McKayla Langmeier of East Granby, CT, and Czar-Z who stood at the top of the leader board. Czar-Z’s beautiful jump and smooth canter helped the duo win both of Thursday’s over fences classes, as well as a first place ribbon and two second place ribbons Wednesday. Their efforts earned the division’s championship title, while a win in yesterday’s under saddle and two second place ribbons over fences helped Jillian Schelzi of Lynnfield, MA, and Pocket of Wonder garner the reserve championship.

Under sunny skies and beautiful New England conditions the $15,000 NEHJA 3’3” Hunter Derby Finals, presented by GGT Footing, featured the top horse and rider combinations from across the country. Besting a field of 40 competitors during the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II, David Oliynyk and Generous led the field from start to finish. Mckayla Langmeier and Czar-Z took the second place, while Jennifer Bliss and Poker Face captured third. Earlier in the day Kristen Bumpus and Inspired took home the victory in $10,000 NEHJA 2’9” Hunter Derby Finals.

Twelve horse and rider combinations would find their way into the challenging handy course, but it was Oliynyk and Generous, owned by Lori Gaudet of Lexington, MA, who were the class pathfinders with their score of 93 points from the first round.

During the handy round riders were tested over an opening coop where they then made a right turn to the hay bale obstacle set at the opening of the grob. A right turn brought them to the EquiFit vertical where they turned right and had the option of walking over a natural pole set a few inches from the ground, or walking through a wooden bridge. They then had to jump an oxer and ride up the table over the consecutive oxer and continue to the trot jump set on the bank. Upon landing they were only faced with one more obstacle, the final grey oxer.

The top three from three from the first round were able to maintain their standings on the leader board by producing brilliant handy rounds. Fourteen-year-old McKayla Langmeier of East Granby, CT, was aboard her veteran mount Czar-Z and they proved why they have been winning top awards all over the country after returning with a third place ranking and a score of 87.5. The duo showcased classic form over the fences and used a lose rein to the walk option, earning a score of 84 for a two round total of 171.5 that boosted them to the second place award.

Jennifer Bliss and Poker Face, owned by Harris Hill Farm of North Salem, NY, were just ahead of Langmeier after the first round with a score of 88. They also had a very relaxed walk, opting to go across the bridge, and they kept a smooth consistent pace throughout the course. The pair earned a score of 82.5 for a total of 170.5, taking home the third place price.

The last to gallop onto the field was the best of the first round competitors and proved to be the best of the day. Oliynyk and the 10-year-old Generous scored an impressive 93 during the first round when they executed flawless style over the course. They returned on top, and despite rubbing a brush a grob, Oliynyk and Generous jumped each fence perfectly and were precise through each transition, scoring an 83.5 for a two round total of 176.5 that would claim the winning honors.

Earlier today, the $10,000 NEHJ 2’9” Hunter Derby Finals were held in the Grand Prix Field. Sixty-eight horse and riders showed over the first round course, but only the top 12 were invited to return to showcase their skills over the handy round. In the end it was Kristen Bumpus and her veteran mount Inspired that wow’d the judges with their inside turns and smooth transitions to take home the winning prize, earning two scores of 88 for a total of 176 points.

The first course for today’s class featured multiple rollbacks and bending lines, two fences on the bank, and a hay bale fence that the horses had to jump coming out of the grob. There were also four option fences at 2’9” and 3’, and if riders chose the higher side they earned an additional point.

The top 12 competitors had scores from the first round ranging from 82 to 91. During the handy, they began with a hand gallop to a coop fence without standards, then jumped up the low bank before they had an inside option vertical and cantered up the second bank and down a trot fence. Riders then cantered an option before transitioning to the walk, where they could step over a low pole fence or walk across a short wooden bridge.

Dyanna Rucco and Watch Hill, owned by Susan Amelotte of Providence, RI, set the score to beat early on in the handy round. Although the pair had been ranked 10th after the first round with a 84.5, their precise trot jump and open hand gallop earned them a second score of 85 for a two round total of 169.5, which held up for third place.

Laurel Tinney had a solid lead in the class after the first round, returning with a score of 91 after a flawless effort by Out On Bale, owned by Nicole Manoog of Centerville, MA. They had an unlucky rub during the handy though, earning a score of 79. Their strong effort in the first round though helped bring their total to 170 to earn the second place honors.

Kristen Bumpus was ranked third after the first round with a score of 88, but she was prepared to climb to the top of the leader board with Inspired, owned by Hannah Curran of Concord, MA. The veteran mount has always excelled in the handy rounds, and Bumpus was prepared to pull out all the stops.

They had a flowing hand gallop to the first two fences, and took a very sharp turn to the inside vertical before galloping up the bank and making a smooth transition for the trot fence. The pair walked easily over the final bridge, exiting the ring with a second score of 88, and a total of 176 to lead the victory gallop.

The Adult Hunters took center stage Saturday in the Main Hunter Ring as the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II came to a close this weekend. Laurie Barna led the way by capturing both the championship and reserve championship honors in the Adult Amateur 36 & Over Hunters with Laguna and Tycoon, respectively. Rebecca Clawson and her young mount Freeport topped the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunters for the championship prize. The day wrapped up with the $1,000 WIHS/NAL Adult Hunter Classic, where the winning honors went to Kelly Lively and Tarzan, who earned scores of 83.5 and 85.

Lively and Tarzan, owned by Betty Oare of Warrenton, VA, were ranked third coming into today’s $1,000 WIHS/NAL Adult Hunter Classic with a score of 83.5. They returned for the second round with a commanding presence, and flowed easily through the course, jumping each fence in perfect form. When the pair exited the ring they were rewarded with a score of 85 for a two round total of 168.5 to claim the victory.

Lively’s victory in the Classic came shortly after earning the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunter Reserve Championship with Tarzan earlier today, winning the first over fences class. The division’s championship award went to Rebecca Clawson of Halifax, MA, and Freeport, who won the second over fences class today, as well as placing first and second yesterday.

Clawson placed fifth in yesterday’s $10,000 NEHJ 2'9" Hunter Derby Finals, and added, “He’s only 5 years old. He’s grown up a lot this summer, so I am really happy with him. He’s very brave, and he doesn’t spook at all. He likes a soft ride. You need to help him a little bit, but he likes to do his own thing.”

This afternoon, Clawson and Freeport placed second in the $1,000 WIHS/NAL Adult Hunter Classic. The pair followed Lively with scores of 85 and 82, for a two round total of 167. The third place award went to Laurie Barna of Dallas, PA, and Laguna, who earned scores of 82 and 84, for a two round total of 166.

Barna and Laguna were the winners of today’s second class in the Adult Amateur 36 & Over Hunters, and combined with a win yesterday they took home the division’s championship prize. Barna’s second mount Tycoon was also victorious yesterday, and picked up the reserve championship award.

Jumper Highlights: Wednesday – Saturday

Sixteen horse and rider combinations gathered on the Grand Prix Field at the Fieldstone Show Park Wednesday afternoon to compete for the winning honors in the $7,500 South Shore Equine Clinic Welcome Stake. Penny Brennan and Japan once again stole the show, capturing the first place and defending their title for the second day of the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II. Brennan also piloted Dare Devil to the second place price, outriding Paul O’Shea and Skara Glen’s Sienna with a speedy jump-off.

Eight of the combinations found their way into the jump-off, but the competition was fierce as riders sliced turns to shave the seconds. Paul O’Shea was the first to tackle the track with Skara Glen’s Sienna. He picked up a quick pace from the start, taking the opening vertical and riding the broken line to the EquiFit oxer. He then made a tight left rollback and jumped the in-and-out where he took an inside turn to the Antares oxer set on a diagonal on the middle of the field. With a speedy left turn he went inside two parallel verticals and cut the seconds, zeroing in on the single vertical and then racing toward the final obstacle, an oxer, where left in place would put him at the top of the leader board.

O’Shea successfully mastered the second course, finishing in a speedy time of 33.768 seconds and becoming the class pathfinder. He has been working with Skara Glen’s Sienna for nearly two years, and Wednesday was all about gaining experience for the young mare. He did not run her off her feet in the jump-off, but he wanted to set a time that would be difficult to beat, while still maintaining a strong confidence.

Although Hannah Lavin and Canetti tried to duplicate O’Shea’s effort, they found fault as fence 12, which proved to be the trickiest obstacle of the shortened course. They proved good enough for the seventh place finish. Three riders found fault in the same place on course, but David Tromp and Zidane Z were the two to post the quickest round out of the four faulters. With Brennan still a threat in the order, Tromp knew he had to post a speedy time. The four faults cost him the win, but he earned the fourth place ribbon for his time of 33.715 seconds. Linda Langmeier and Classic Care took the fifth place, while Cory Hardy and Camelot 105 rounded out the top six.

Brennan entered the ring with an explosive pace, riding through the serpentine of fences and to the first place finish. His quick foot speed and almost no hang time gave her an advantage. Although she kept to the planned seven strides down the first line, she still was able to blow O’Shea’s time out of the water. They completed the course in 30.759 seconds, a full three seconds.

With one more mount left in the class, Brennan was up again against the timers with her more recent mount Dare Devil. The sale horse can jump well over 1.60m; however, Brennan was not focusing on speed with him. She admitted that none of her other horses had the same speed as Japan. Dare Devil responded beautifully to her on the course, completing the track in 32.449 seconds for the second place. As the last horse of the day, Brennan rode right to the center of the winner’s circle to claim her 1-2 finish.

Despite cloudy conditions, Penny Brennan once again shone through during the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II to win the $7,500 EquiFit Speed Derby aboard Great Good. Torrential downpours threatened the Fieldstone Show Park Thursday, but that did not deter riders from competing for the prize. Brennan captured first place, outriding her competitors by nearly 14 seconds. Kristen Bumpus and Cupid rode to the second place finish, while Rebecca Lituchy and Volare finished third.

Speed was the name of the game for Thursday’s riders, but with slippery conditions and a daunting course, accuracy also played a key role. Kristen Bumpus and Cupid were only second in the order to go, but after coming off of Saturday’s $50,000 Fieldstone Grand Prix, she had a firm plan in place.

Working on her pace definitely proved successful. The duo cleared all 14 obstacles with ease, and tripped the timers in 91.248 seconds. It seemed as though she had the win in her hands.

The following riders attempted to catch Bumpus’ time, however, it held strong. It wasn’t until Rebecca Lituchy and Volare entered the ring that defeat seemed a possibility. The talented young rider guided her mount through the course without incurring any faults, but her time of 95.812 seconds was over the time allowed, due to some conservative turns, costing her time faults. They ended with the final time of 97.812 seconds.

Brennan was the last to take on the track, and Thursday she opted to only show one of her mounts. Her veteran mount Japan had the day off, while Greater Good stepped up and gave the crowd exactly what they were looking for—a real speed stake.

Brennan opened up the course with a long-strided gallop, slicing the first jump to make the inside turn to the skinny vertical, however, they were a little too slick during the slice to the third obstacle, the EquiFit oxer. They dropped the back rail after taking the oxer a little too deep and short.

She landed from the oxer and she set an even more forward pace for the rest of the course, slicing the rollback to the Boston Red Sox vertical, and then threw the reins forward, gave a kick, and Greater Good jumped the opening of the line down the middle with enormous scope. With a bend in the line, she was able to keep her forward pace and position Greater Good for the perfect cat-like distance, jumping from the base of the jump forward to the vertical, and onward through the in-and-out.

It seemed as though they were consuming the grass as they took every obstacle with a landmark time. She continued to push Greater Good forward over the course, landing after the Stanley Cup oxer in 77.774 seconds, nearly 14 seconds faster than her competitors. Even with the four faults from earlier in the course, Brennan and Greater Good took the win with the final time of 81.774 seconds.

Bumpus was awarded the second place for her efforts aboard Cupid, while Lituchy and Volare took the third. Wendy Collins and Tomasa finished fourth, Linda Langmeier and Pay It Forward were presented with the fifth place ribbon, and Liz Mahoney and Carpe Diem rounded out the top six.

Spectators lined the sides of the Grand Prix Field at the Fieldstone Show Park as they watched top-tier riders compete in a battle of the best out on the turf this afternoon. Linda Langmeier and Classic Care captured the win in the $15,000 Antarès Grand Prix, taking a fantastic victory for the final day of the Fieldstone Summer Showcase II. Paul O’Shea and Skara Glen’s Sienna rode to the second place finish, while Penny Brennan piloted Sun Tzu to the third place.

O’Shea was the first to return for the short course aboard the 7-year-old Skara Glen’s Sienna, owned by Skara Glen Stables. Saturday was the first week that O’Shea asked Sienna to open her stride during the jump-off and improve her time. O’Shea navigated Sienna through inside turns, slicing the seconds from his time while still maintaining a flowing pace. He was able to finish the course in 38.832 seconds with all rails in their cups.

Langmeier was the only other rider able to duplicate O’Shea’s clean effort in the jump-off. Although Brennan attempted to secure the lead with Sun Tzu, the final rail fell for a four-fault total. Langmeier was able to take all of the inside turns while she pushed her more recent mount, Classic Care, through the slices, beating O’Shea with a time of 38.246 seconds.

Hasbrouck created a course reminiscent of the afternoon’s $15,000 Antarès Grand Prix for the morning’s classic riders. He challenged them with the triple bar, vertical-vertical-oxer triple combination, bending lines, tight rollbacks and a tight oxer-vertical double combination. In the jump-off riders started over a redbrick oxer bending to a skinny vertical, made a right rollback over a single vertical and then took the double combination. They then landed and raced through a large right turn to take the Boston Bruins oxer and then turn left for the final EquiFit vertical where they would break the beam.

Earlier in the day the $2,500 Child/Adult Jumper Classic stole the spotlight in the Grand Prix Field. For many of the riders, this was their first time tackling a jumper course on the engulfing grass field, but it did not deter any as they raced against the clock. Kimberley Janson and Quica proved the winners, surpassing young Charlie Jacobs and Elphaba, owned by CMJ Sporthorse. Jacobs posted a time of 37.310 seconds as the third in the jump-off, eventually earning him the second place award. Janson posted a double-clear effort in 34.773 seconds to lead the morning’s first victory gallop, while Bull Run’s Charly Brown, owned by ATJ Farms LLC, with Amanda Gellis in the irons took home the third place.

The $3,000 Low and High Junior/Amateur-Owner Classics were the highlight of the morning for Zone 1 riders as the last of a series of six classes held to promote the North American Junior Young Rider Program. The program creates incentives for aspiring jumper riders, and each class awards $2,000 in bonus prize money to be distributed to the top six NAJYRC eligible (Junior/Amateur riders age 14 to 21) finishers from Zone 1, regardless of class placings. The “High Point Riders”, tabulated at the end of the series, will receive VIP Passes and a course walk with a well-known jumper rider at the Zoetis $1,000,000 Grand Prix held September 8, 2013, at HITS Saugerties.

The stakes were high Saturday as the riders moved forward through the course, but it was Lisa Rex and Shamrock, owned by Susan Dixon, who captured the championship with their speedy jump-off. Although they had one rail fall at the beginning of the double combination, their time proved the fastest for the win. Anastasia Bezsylko and Cakao 2 took second, while Evelyn Graff and Cayman rode to the third.

In the High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers Helena Le Picart and Bon Vivant captured the win as the only clean round of the classic. Christine Walsh and Henry were the fastest of the four-faulters riding to the second place.
