(as of 12/12/11) We had excellent coverage by equestrian media this year, both pre and post show. Clips continue to come in and it will be February before we have a final tally. Our equestrian media partnership program is at the core of our equestrian strategy. The tradebased program offers magazines, websites and radio a comprehensive menu of elements from simple ad exchange to exclusive articles, ticket promotions and social media efforts. While post-show coverage is important, it’s the advance coverage that is most helpful to building buzz about the show and ticket sales, and that’s where we had excellent traction. More than 33 equestrian publications provided advance articles for WIHS. We worked with editors to provide exclusive articles and photographs tailored to each publication’s readership, location or specific riders and trainers. We continue to get calls for post-show photos and information and several already have contacted us for targeted stories and photos for pre-show articles for next year. This is in addition to any press release publicity for which we also had good pick-up. We work pretty hard with editors on press releases and provide additional and exclusive photos as needed. In some cases we have access to publication websites to post releases ourselves. Approximately 25 equestrian media outlets traded ad space in print or online for magazine distribution at the show, online ads and other amenities. Highlights:           

Five cover photos California Horse Show Biz did a fabulous six-page spread including two full pages of photos, which we had available for patrons at the Fidelity Club Florida Horse did a four-page spread with two full pages of photos Equestrian (USEF) ran a cover photo of Lillie Keenan from 2010 WIHS (Sept/Oct issue) Dover’s Horse World radio show with Robert Dover, featured Robert Ridland, David Distler and Archie Cox in an extended interview about WIHS. An unexpected guest, George Morris, also participated. The Chronicle of the Horse posted photo galleries daily Virginia Sportsman did a six-page story on the Caisson Platoon Sidelines News tied its circulation promotion to WIHS, and ran several stories—an advance story, a post-show blog on mutton busting and a full-page photo essay in the magazine Horse Talk magazine did an advance six-page story on WIHS judge Chris Wynn Practical Horseman, through its Facebook page and sister website, EquiSearch.com, did a ticket giveaway. Nancy Jaffer, one of the leading equestrian journalists worldwide, did an upbeat and very positive postcard about WIHS, with an audio interview with Juliet and photo gallery

Skelton was the only one to go clear in the fifth and final round when the wall was raised to seven feet tall (2.13m). As the only clear, Skelton was also awarded a $5,000 bonus from The Boeing Company. On Beverley Widdowson's Carlo 273 he claimed the victory in the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix CSI 3*-W presented by Events DC, the most prestigious class of the horse show.

Casady and Ashland Farms’ Worlds Fair Receive Hunter Phase High Score at WIHS OCTOBER 28, 2011 – WASHINGTON, DC – The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) hosted the hunter phase of the WIHS Equitation Classic on Friday morning with an early lead going to Shawn Casady of Harriman, TN. Casady rode Ashland Farms’ Worlds Fair to a score of 87.666 over the other thirty-four competitors. Elizabeth Benson and Hayley Barnhill each finished with scores of 87. Other top finishers included Charlotte Jacobs, Lauren Tyree, Chase Boggio, Meg O’Mara, and Victoria Colvin. “I was really proud of Worlds Fair,” said Casady. “I was happy with the way he jumped; he was slow and smooth, and walked right up the lines. He’s really good in the jumper phase, but the top three are all really close.” The WIHS Equitation Classic will continue tomorrow with all riders returning for the jumper phase. The hunter and jumper scores will then be averaged out to determine the top ten riders who will participate in the final work-off. The riders change horses by determination of a random draw by lot and then compete over the jumper course for final scores. Shawn Casady & Worlds Fair (Photo by Shawn McMillen Photography)

Tonight's class was the highlight of the week at the WIHS, which finishes tomorrow with competition for the pony hunters, the WIHS Pony Equitation Finals, and the WIHS Regional Finals. Skelton and Carlo 273, a 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Contender, were the last to go clear in the opening round of 24 entries over a course designed by Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC. First up in the jump-off was Davis on Nemo 119, a 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cambridge owned by Old Oak Farm. They had two rails to finish with eight faults in 39.74 seconds for third place.

Nemo 119 and Lucy Davis "I only brought one horse, so the days leading up to today were all in preparation for this class," Davis said. "Being from California I have not shown indoors much and I haven’t really done any big indoor grand prix, so it was just kind of going in for experience and trying to do as well as I could." Davis purchased Nemo 119 from Nick Skelton two years ago, and they had a stellar winter season, winning four grand prix events. She said of her horse, "He is very fun and very talented. A little quirky, but he has really taught me a lot, so I am really thankful for that." Brianne Goutal and Nice de Prissey, a 10-year-old Selle Francais stallion by Rosire owned by Remarkable Farms LP, had an unfortunate rail for four faults in 43.00 seconds, but that would hold up for second place.

The plan was really just to finish and to finish as well as I could. My horse has been amazing all week and he was amazing tonight. I thought the course was really fair. Michel has been building great all week. My plan was literally just to cross both timers."

Carlo 273 and Nick Skelton "Actually I don't like those jump offs when there are no clears and you have to go last," Skelton admitted. "You can make a mistake. If they had all been clear, at least you can go in there and go faster, but when you are in that position you have to be careful. I prefer to have other clears, to have to go fast and attack. Also the time was very tight, so I got two time faults. It was a good class. The horse jumped great and I thought the course was fair for the amount of riders that were in it."

Skelton described Carlo as a "very talented horse." He continued, "He is very careful. He has all the jump and he has a great mind. He really wants to do it, so that makes my life easier." Skelton said that Carlo has not shown indoors for a couple of years, but didn't have a problem coming to the WIHS. They have had a great year, Skelton said, "from Wellington to the European Championships." They will continue on the indoor circuit at the Alltech National Horse Show and the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. For their victory, Skelton and Carlo 273 were presented with the President of the United States Perpetual Cup. As Leading Jumper Rider, Skelton also won the Margaret Chovnick Memorial Trophy. Skelton was named the Leading International Rider as well.

Skelton won a Rolex from Tiny Jewel Box in addition to beautiful trophies and prizes All three riders said they look forward to competing at the WIHS every year. Davis mentioned, "I have come for the past five years, and did the ponies and eq finals and juniors. It is really special for me because I have a lot of family in the city so they can come and watch. I also think that this year has been great as far as crowds. It was definitely much improved and I will definitely come back next year." Skelton has been competing at the WIHS since the 80s, and noted, "We have a nice time when we're here." Goutal, who started showing at the WIHS in 1995 on ponies, explained, "It has always kind of been one of the peak stops in my year. It has always been a very important finals for us. It is a very patriotic event, and it is prestigious. I

think they did an amazing job this year running the show. It has had a revamping in the past two years and it is really nice to see a big crowd come and support the show. They have been working really hard at getting the numbers up and they have really done it this year. It is just a great show to come to. I look forward to it every year." Chase Boggio Wins 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Finals The 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Finals concluded this evening with a significant win for 18-year-old Chase Boggio, of Canton, GA. Boggio rode Massimo, his ten-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cassini, through the first two phases of competition, finishing with a score of 85.33 in the hunter phase and an 89 point total in the jumper phase. Returning for the final work-off sitting in second place overall, Boggio’s ride aboard Elizabeth Benson's mount Calito 7 scored an 87.83, giving him a three round total of 262.166 for the win.

Calito 7 and Chase Boggio Boggio earned the victory over Hayley Barnhill, of Collierville, TN, who totaled 259.999 with scores of 87, 86.67, and 86.33. Barnhill rode Elizabeth MacWilliam’s Camora in the hunter/jumper rounds and then piloted Boggio's mount Massimo in the final work-off.

Massimo and Hayley Barnhill Third place went to Elizabeth Benson, of Whitehouse Station, NJ, with a three round total of 258.499. Benson rode Horizon Hill Farm LLC's Calito 7 to scores of 87 and 90.33 in the first two rounds. Her ride in the final work-off aboard Sarah Milliren’s mount Vancouver, owned by Elvenstar Farm, scored an 81.17. Boggio was presented The WIHS Equitation Classic Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. G. Ralph Ours, III and was awarded a pair of custom chaps provided by Journeymen Saddlers, Ltd. Tonight's victory was particularly exciting for the rider given that he had previously been in the top ten for this class three times before finally putting his name on the elite list of winners. He finished seventh in 2008, second in 2009, and eighth in 2010. Massimo was awarded The Lugano Memorial Trophy donated by Stoney Hill as the winning horse of the night. In

last year’s competition, Massimo helped put rider Lillie Keenan in the winner’s circle after she rode the big gray in the final work-off. This year he carried both the first and second place finishers through excellent rounds. Trainer Christina Schlusemeyer found the talented gelding in Europe two years ago and knew that he would be the perfect horse to guide Boggio to a national championship.

Massimo and Chase Boggio "I purchased Massimo in November of 2009, and he has been amazing for me," Boggio explained. "When I tried him in Europe he was very green and could not canter in a straight line. I told Christina he could never do the equitation, but she said 'He'll do it, just watch.' He has just been so easy; he never does anything bad. Massimo truly is the deluxe equitation horse." Commenting on his victory, Boggio smiled, "It means a lot to win here. I've been second in pretty much every big class that there is in the United States, so it feels good to finally win one.”" "I got very lucky," he added. "I honestly think that it was fate because I got switched on to Calito, who I leased last year. He's an amazing horse and it only took me three jumps to get to know him again. I was really happy with him, and Massimo of course."

See Chase Boggio and Massimo in their jumper phase round. All show videos available at www.shownet.biz Schlusemeyer proudly commented on Boggio's success, declaring, "This is our happiest day to date. Chase is such a hard worker. He takes it seriously, and he should be a good example to all other equitation riders - if you want it, you can get it."   Second place finisher Hayley Barnhill spoke about her ride on Massimo, noting, "I was really happy with Chase's horse. He's a big strided horse and I thought he was great." One of Barnhill's trainers, Missy Clark, explained that her rider had an unexpected horse change right before this week's competition. Barnhill got her top finish riding not just one, but two unknown horses - a true testament to her skill and composure in the show ring. "Hayley has never shown Camora, so she had two that she had never ridden before, but she was amazing," Clark stated. "She rode like a true double national champion; she really rose to the occasion. We were graciously loaned Camora at the last minute, and you don't see that generosity very often." Judge Steve Wall remarked on the ability of the top two riders, acknowledging, "These two have always been near the top and today was their day; the cream rises to the top. There are riding styles in the two of them that are more polished and more finished."

Washington International Horse Show: Nick Skelton and Carlo 273 Capture Victory in President's Cup Grand Prix, CSI 3*-W - Barnmice Equestrian Social Community

Watch Chase Boggio's winning final round on Calito 7. All show videos available at www.shownet.biz Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers Compete in Classics The $10,000 Ambassador's Cup High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic was sponsored by AAA Equestrian LLC, and it was Victoria Colvin who came away with the win on Waminka, owned by Rivers Edge. They were the only double clear in a jump-off of four entries. Olinda and Genevieve Zock were second, while Liza Finsness on Ormsby Hill was third. Colvin was presented with yet another trophy in a week of incredible success for the 14-year-old rider from Loxahatchee, FL. For the classic, she won the Ambassador's Cup Perpetual Trophy donated by Ambassador and Mrs. Marion H. Smoak. Colvin won the Grand Junior Hunter championship yesterday and was named Best Child Rider on a Horse. She said of her wins, "I'm excited. I think the best thing was Best Junior Rider. It meant a lot to me."

Waminka and Victoria Colvin In the jump-off, Colvin wanted to attempt a tricky inside turn and knew her plan. "I think I had a good plan," she agreed. "I watched the last class, so I got to see a lot do the jump-off. I was just going to try and do what they did. I did the inside turn. She hit it and it was almost on the ground. I thought if I was slow to the one jump, I thought she could make that turn." Colvin started showing Waminka, an eight-year-old KWPN mare by Fedor, in the High Junior Jumpers this winter. She remarked, "She's fun. She jumps so high! It's cool to have won here (again)." The High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper champion was Banana d'Ive Z, ridden by Meagan Nusz. They were awarded the Greenberg Challenge Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. Hermen Greenberg. Waminka and Colvin were reserve champions. The Shalanno Style of Riding Award was given to Samantha Schaefer.

Washington International Horse Show: Nick Skelton and Carlo 273 Capture Victory in President's Cup Grand Prix, CSI 3*-W - Barnmice Equestrian Social Community

In the $5,000 Senator's Cup Low Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic sponsored by North Star, Michael Hughes of Allendale, NJ rode Drumnacross Farm Ltd.'s Red Hot to victory. They finished the jump-off double clear in 33.237 seconds for the win over Gabrielle Stern on Anjelica, who stopped the timers in 33.903 seconds for second place. Third place went to Sugar Ray and Samantha Schaefer, who had a clear round in 34.455 seconds. For their win, Hughes and Red Hot were presented with the Swan Lake Perpetual Trophy donated by Beagle Brook Farm in honor of the 1992 winner Swan Lake, ridden by Jennifer F. Miller. The Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Champion sponsored by North Star was Red Hot, ridden by Michael Hughes. Samantha Schaefer and Sugar Ray were the reserve champions. They won the Foxbrook Perpetual Trophy in honor of Space Citation donated by Joy Slater. Hughes has been riding Red Hot, a 13-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding by Indoctro, for two years. "He's very red hot," Hughes laughed. "He's so much fun to ride and he's such a great teacher in the jump-offs because he's so fast."

Red Hot and Michael Hughes Hughes said of the class, "The course was very difficult; I didn't think there was going to be as many clear as there was, but there were so many good horses and riders in the class. I kept the same pace the whole way around. I never really slowed down. He is very careful, you just have to watch the last couple of jumps." The Washington International Horse Show concludes tomorrow with a day full of pony competition as well as the WIHS Regional Finals.

11/28/2011 at 6:26 pm I've noticed that there haven't been any new sculptures or moulds created lately. Does anyone have any idea if there will be any new models soon? If there is they should make a galloping mare and remake another Zenyatta on it! I would TOTALLY buy that :)

Having been announced as the best International Combination of the Year at the British Showjumping Awards on Friday Night Nick and Carlo did not disappoint in the 1.60m Grand Prix on Saturday. Jumping one of only four clears in the first round they were last to go in the jump off and the only combination to jump clear again picking up just two time faults to take the win. For their victory, Nick and Carlo were presented with the President of the United States Perpetual Cup. Nick also won the Leading Jumper Rider picking up a Rolex watch and was named the Leading International Rider of the show. Fellow British rider Scott Brash from Peeblesshire in Scotland also picked up several results through out the week finishing sixth in the Grand Prix. Scott was partnering Elizabeth Mctaggart’s ten year old brown gelding Bon Ami II and had just one fence down in round one.   Washington President’s Cup Grand Prix Saturday 29 th October 2011 1 st Nick Skelton riding Carlo – 0/2 in 46.32 seconds 2 nd Brianne Goutal riding Nice de Prissey – 0/4 in 43.00 seconds 3 rd Lucy Davies riding Nemo 199 – 0/8 in 39.74 seconds 4 th Margie Engle riding Indigo – 0/8 in 40.41 seconds 5 th Richie Moloney riding Slieveanorra – 4 faults 6 th Scott Brash riding Bon Ami II – 4 faults 7 th Laura Kraut riding Teirra – 4 faults   For more information and full results please visit http://www.wihs.org/   Photo credited to Diana De Rosa Photography           < Previous Article

John French John French joins the Washington International Board of Directors. article & photos by Diana DeRosa

John French was recently added to the Board of Directors of the Washington International Horse Show joining fellow Californian Archie Cox. Over the years he's taken the trip back to his home area numerous times to compete at WIHS and plans to be back again this year when the show takes place at Verizon Center in the heart of Washington, DC, Oct. 25-30. John's love for horses started when he was 3 years old and, once bitten by the horse bug, there was no turning back. "I didn't grow up like a lot of kids on the show circuit. I did Pony Club and fox hunting. We lived in the Maryland area. I would go fox hunting on a small pony and jump 3'6" coups. We couldn't afford to go to big "A" shows, so we would go to a couple of shows a year. When I was 15, people would ask me to show their ponies. I was still small enough.

http://www.ridingmagazine.com/riding_onlinemag/articles/2011_09/johnfrench.htm[9/13/2011 11:39:54 AM]


Riding Magazine "My mother was a great teacher for me until about 14," John continues. "After that I learned by watching riders that I admired and emulating them. Also, I started getting instruction from trainers who had asked me to catch ride." After working with a number of prominent trainers John began building a business. One day he spoke with Californian Pam Hall, who had 10 horses going to a horse show and needed someone to ride them." That sounded good to John, who hopped on the next plane. Before he knew it, John was making regular trips back to California and soon recognized there was more for him there than in New Jersey. "So, I packed my bags, drove to California and haven't looked back."

Adding John to the WIHS Board of Directors just made perfect sense." John is a strong supporter of the Washington International," comments Executive Director, Bridget Love Meehan. "He also rides and trains hunters and jumpers and is a respected leader in the sport. He lives in California now but grew up and began his riding career in Maryland, not far from Washington, DC." "We are thrilled that John has joined the Board of Directors of the Washington International Horse Show," adds WIHS President, Juliet Reid. "John is one of the most outstanding hunter riders in North America, not only this year, but in the past two decades or more. The equestrian perspective that John brings to the Board is critical as we continue to grow our event as the last great indoor championship horse show and a showcase event in the Nation's capital." We recently took the time to chat with John and here's what he had to say. Q: When was the first time you recall competing at the Washington International? JF: The first time was on a pony at the Capital Center in Landover, MD. I didn't have one of my best shows. A few years later just out of the Juniors I had one of my most memorable wins ever. I showed Ice Palace in the Regular Working Hunter division and won the Handy Hunter class. The riders that were behind me in that class were Rodney Jenkins (2nd), Katie Monahan (3rd) and Charlie Weaver (4th). I never believed I would be able to compete and win against the three best hunter riders of all time. The first time I showed at the new facility in downtown DC was 2006. I was champion in the Second Year Green with Vida Blue and in the Regular Working with Overseas and was

Riding Magazine Leading Hunter Rider. Q: How is competing at WIHS now different than those first few years? JF: Back then I was a Junior and just happy to be qualified. Now that I am a professional I go there with hopes of winning. Q: You are one West Coast rider that regularly journeys east to compete in WIHS. Why? JF: It's the only fall indoor show that is in a city. There is something about being in a city, being downtown and walking to the show. Washington is such a great city. Now that there is no New York Horse Show this is the only show that gives you the true indoor experience. Q: How would you compare competing at WIHS to West Coast shows? JF: We don't have any indoor shows on the West Coast and we don't have any shows that are located in the center of a city. Q: What message do you bring to California to inspire others to follow your lead? JF: We've got great horses on the West Coast that are competitive with East Coast horses and riders. We need to represent the West Coast by going back and experiencing showing in a big city. Until you have gone back and done it you don't realize what a great experience it is. Q: Now that you are on the WIHS Board what advice would you offer? JF: Keep getting West Coast riders and trainers involved. Q: You've had so many successes. Is there any particular goal you haven't achieved yet? JF: Yes, winning the President's Cup Grand Prix at Washington. Q: What has been your greatest achievement so far? JF: My greatest achievement is over the years having the owners and horses that have allowed me to compete at the very best shows like WIHS.

Thoughts On The Indoor Show Season By: Susie Schoellkopf

Our columnist examines some changes to the fall show schedule.

Lucy Davis and Nemo 119

As the winter show circuits were thriving, three of our major indoor shows experienced significant changes that could have a strong impact on the hunter industry. As people start packing to move back to their summer bases, they’re deciding which shows to attend based on criteria like distance to their home, quality of the show and footing, and costs. The managers of most top shows have learned that they must make improvements in order to attract exhibitors, and the indoor shows are no different.

Running a horse show for a week in a nonequestrian venue, like the Oncenter that hosted the Syracuse Invitational, is expensive and logistically difficult. Photo by Molly Sorge.

Let’s start with the Washington International Horse Show. Their board has signed a new three-year contract with the Verizon Center, which ensures this show will move forward. I’m hoping that sponsorship has stepped up and that the exhibitors won’t have to pay the ever-increasing price of running this show in the middle of Washington, D.C. Hats off to the organizers for running this show in a non-horse facility, but one has to wonder how long the board of directors can justify the expense.

Once we’re all in the arena and the show begins, the atmosphere at Washington is spectacular. But we cannot keep asking the same people—the exhibitors—to support this show. To show at Washington, you have to pay for two sets of stalls—one at the show and one at the layover facility—two hotels, and shipping charges between the two. And the prices continue to grow. The trade-off for the inconvenience and price is that the show has a great feel and excitement. But you have to wonder if these stand-alone shows, with one ring, limited stabling and difficult logistics, can continue.

We Lost One Organizers of the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament (N.Y.) have decided to close the doors on this wonderful jumper show. I say “jumper” because that is how the show started, with a schedule full of jumper classes, in 2003. In 2005, the National Horse Show partnered with Syracuse, bringing the ASPCA Maclay Finals to the show. And in 2008, the National Horse Show hunter divisions followed, in an effort to see if both shows could benefit.

HORSE RADIO NETWORK

We all wanted a recreation of the glory days of the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden to bloom from this combination of two great shows, but it didn’t happen. Since the National left Madison Square Garden in 2001, the NHS has been struggling in each venue it appeared, from the Meadowlands (N.J.) to Pier 94 in New York City, and Wellington (Fla.), and finally at the Syracuse Invitational. There is only one Madison Square Garden, and short of returning the National Horse Show to New York City, we all must move on. We can debate all day as to the reasons for the Syracuse show’s demise.

Horse Radio Network Shows

But the expenses of running a top horse show in a non-equestrian venue are prohibitive. And it was difficult to fit the hunter classes into the established jumper schedule in a way that showcased the hunters. Is it possible to find sponsorship to support a jumper show and hunter show? Are the higherend jumpers and the higher-end hunters a formula that can be put together successfully?

Hats off to John Madden and his team for trying to bring a first class jumper show to the fall indoor schedule. The international flavor was something we had at Madison Square Garden years and years ago, with international riders showing. Hopefully, the National Horse Show can do the same. A New Start So now the National Horse show moves to the Kentucky Horse Park for 2011.

Exhibition Grand Opening Oct. 29-30 and Free Kids’ Day VIEW MORE

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Washington International Horse Show announce a new partnership to celebrate horses in Native American culture and equestrian sport throughout history. The museum opens “A Song for the Horse Nation” Saturday, Oct. 29, at its flagship museum on the National Mall, a major exhibition that explores the role horses have played in Native culture from the 1500s to the present. The exhibition runs through Jan. 7, 2013. The Washington International Horse Show celebrates its 53rd year Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center. Together, the two organizations will celebrate these occasions with free family programs on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the museum, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at Verizon Center, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and all day Sunday, Oct. 30, at the museum.

Nelson (Standing Rock Sioux), hands-on ledger-art lessons and much more at both locations. “What better way for us to come together to illuminate our shared history and distinct cultures than through our mutual admiration for horses,” said museum director, Kevin Gover (Pawnee). “This unique collaboration celebrates the indomitable spirit not just of the Horse Nation, but of the whole nation. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Washington International Horse Show and know that the spectators at Verizon Center and the visitors to the museum will be, too.” “The Washington International Horse Show is honored to partner with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, two great Washington institutions coming together to celebrate horses and equestrian sport,” said Bridget Love Meehan, executive director, Washington International Horse Show. “Aligning our organization with one of the world’s most recognized cultural institutions allows the Washington International Horse Show to share the drama, beauty and athleticism of world-class equestrian sport with millions of people worldwide and honor the significance of the horse throughout our nation’s history.”

"We are honored to feature Mickey Paraskevas' humorous sketch, 'Uncle Sam,' as our official poster this year. Mickey tips his hat both to Washington, D.C. and WIHS in his light-hearted sketch of a gentleman in top hat watching the horses at the show through binoculars. The artwork perfectly connects our equestrian event to this great city," said Bridget Love Meehan, executive director, WIHS. This is Paraskevas' second Washington-themed poster for WIHS. In 2009 he created a whimsical poster of a horse jumping over the White House.

Boggio Bags A Washington Win By: Victoria Rodriguez

Oct. 29—Washington D.C. It might have taken him five years, but tonight at the Washington International Horse Show, Chase Boggio finally won the WIHS Equitation Classic. VIEW MORE

Boggio came into the third and final round of the WIHS Classic sitting in third place after the hunter and jumper phases. In the third round, the “rideoff,” the top 10 riders are invited back and switch horses to jump the same jumper round they did on their own horses earlier in the day. The bottom five switched amongst each other, and the top five did likewise. For the ride-off, Boggio got a mount he was familiar with: Calito 7. “I got very lucky,” Boggio said. “I honestly think it was fate today that I got Calito, who I leased for the finals last year. He’s an amazing horse, and it only took me three jumps to get to know him again.”

Pope Tops USHJA Emerging Athletes National Training Session

Boggio received an 87.833 for his third round, the second best behind Meg O’Mara, who scored an 89.00. Hayley Barnhill, who placed second overall, was third best in the ride-off behind O’Mara and Boggio, on Boggio’s horse Massimo, with an 86.33. “I was really happy with Chase’s horse; he was so good,” Barnhill said. “He’s really big; he’s a bigstrided horse. We moved up a spot [from the jumper round].” Massimo and Boggio were solid throughout the first two rounds. They placed sixth in the first round, then moved up to second overall after a big score of 89.00 in the jumper phase. For Barnhill and Boggio, it was the last year they were eligible to ride in the WIHS Equitation Classic, and they made it count in a big way. “There were riding styles we liked in the two of them that were just a little more polished,” said judge Steve Wall. “Riding these three rounds, it’s a big test of horsemanship. I’ve seen these two throughout the years as they’ve grown up, and they’ve always been near the top, and it was their day today.” The leader from the jumper phase, Elizabeth Benson, took a turn on Sarah Milliren’s horse, Vancouver, for the ride-off. She posted a strong score of 81.66 but fell to third overall after Boggio and Barnhill both earned markedly higher scores.  The top 10 placings of the WIHS Equitation Classic were as follows: 1. Chase Boggio 2. Hayley Barnhill 3. Elizabeth Benson 4. Meg O’Mara 5. Sarah Milliren 6. Charlotte Jacobs 7. Shawn Casady 8. Allison Toffolon 9. Lauren Tyree 10.

It might have been, like Nick Skelton suggested, that many competitive riders who normally compete in the grand prix at the Washington International (D.C.) were competing at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Whatever it was, only four of a field of 24 advanced to the jump-off in the $100,000 President’s Cup CSI-W, and not one of those four left the ring after their second round without some faults on the board. In the jump-off, Lucy Davis posted 8 faults, followed by a 4-fault round by Brianne Goutal and 8 faults by Margie Engle.

However, in Nick Skelton’s case, the 2 faults were not because Carlo 273 knocked a rail, but that as the final ride of four, and having seen his three previous competitors have at least one rail each, Skelton knew he would have to forego the risky turns to make the time limit so that he could leave all the rails in the cups. “Actually, I don’t like those jump-offs, because when there are no clear rounds and you have to jump clear, that’s when you tend to make a mistake,” said Skelton. “I prefer to have other clears—to have to go fast and attack. But in that [the former] position, you have to go in there and be really careful. And also, the time was really tight.” Vaillancourt acknowledged a multi-tiered system for building a course of this difficulty; its title of a President's Cup, its designation as a World Cup qualifier and the fact that he anticipated a large crowd who would need to be provided with "some kind of spectacle." The second rider of the evening, Davis on Nemo 119 (who Davis bought from Skelton about two years ago), put in the first clear round, then immediately followed by Goutal and Nice de Pressey. Fifteen more horse-and-rider combinations tried their hand at Vaillancourt’s test, but it wasn’t until Engle and Indigo cantered around that the third clear round was posted. Even though Carlo had not shown indoors for several years, he still handled the atmosphere like a pro, his double-clear performance coming off a second-placed finish in Thursday’s $31,000 International Open Jumper Time First Jump Off. “It was a good class. I thought the course was fair. My horse was great—I was really pleased with him,” Skelton said of the 10-year-old gelding. “[Carlo] has really grown up a lot this summer.” Tonight wrapped up a successful WIHS for the British rider (he also won the Puissance class with

BETWEEN ROUNDS

Go East, Young Woman With fall indoor season on the horizon, our columnist recognizes the benefits of Utest Coast riders traveling east to compete but reminds us why it's not a decision to be taken lightly. By HOPE GLYNN

Getting horses and riders prepared for the USHJA International Hunter Derby Finals, the Pesso:VUSEF Medal Finals, or the AdequatlfFEI North American Junior and Young Riders Championships takes a great deal of work at home from the ricier, horse, trainer, grooms and assistants, no matter where you live. But the trip east from the \illest Coast does require an extra degree of effort and serious financial strain beyond what most people living on the East Coast realize when they ask me why I don't come east every year. Yes, we West Coast riders know we should go east to show, and we want to. But financial, personal and business reasons can all too easily hold us back. Plus, we have many beautiful horse shows of our own that offer great prize money in both Northern and Southern California. And it's also hard to get people to leave our great weather to travel across the country, where you're often more likely to compete in lightning, thunder, rain and humidity than

you are in comfortable conditions. Yet nowhere on the West Coast can you get the rush of showing at night in a ring where the World Equestrian Games were held, or the pressure and elation feIt putting in a great round in a Medal Finals class of 150 people, or the joy of cheering on your team while meeting young riders from all across the country and the world who share your passion for riding and horses. 'This is a thrilling sport to watch and be involved in, and there's nothing like the feeling of putting it all together at one of these venues! 1herefore we must encourage our top riders and horses to go outside of the comfort zone, and if financially possible, strive

to compete at the top levels at the most prestigious horse shows in tlus country.

Unforhlnately, at th.is point \ve have no national championship show that can be pitched to parents and owners as lithe year-end show of all shows" that riders and trainers work for all year in hopes of attending. However, there are a lot of great options that push riders and horses to raise the bar, and that's why I encourage our clients to try to go east if at all possible.

It All Adds Up While some argue that the biggest thing that keeps people away from the East Coast is the competition, let's get


realistic-it costs a ton to get there and stay there! Before anyone considers making the trek, he should be aware of what to reasonably expect to pay for the excursion. If you fly a horse round-trip into Lexington, Ky., plus vanning to and from the plane, you're looking at around 58,000 per horse. I f you ship cross-country in box stalls, that'll run you in the 54,000 round-trip range. And if you decide to spend that much on hauling, most people choose to stay multiple weeks. That means

your horses don't get to go back home on the off' weeks , so they're staying at a layover facility. Most layovers average S50 per d ay for board, then you add shavings, feed, the trainer's hotel,

the groom's hotel, rental car, laundry charges, haul again, etc. And those are for non-show weeks! The cost of a show in California versus one in New York is similar, but the extra expense of getting there and staying there is vastly different for a \ !\Iest Coaster. This year, instead of just coming for a week of finals o r indoors, we've

decided to keep a group of horses on tile East Coast for 10 weeks, out of which we'll show 81.'(. '"lllis is where the scheduling nightmare begins. We have flights for horses, grooms, trainers and students on a weekly basis, depending on where we are in the country. My assistant an d some of my riders stay the entire ti me, but I fly home in between to see family and at-

home clients, so it's weekly flights for many of us. Then there are the rental cars for grooms, rental cars for clients, rental cars for trainers-no one has the lmmry of driving there from home and having their own vehicle. \!\Ie also have to order hay to be shipped in to the shows, as our horses out west are used to timothy grass hay, and it's hard to come by in the east, and we can't risk ti,e horses not feeling well. It's hard enough on them to get used to the diffe rence in climate. W e start th em on electrolytes, fluids and

immun.ity boosters before we leave; once you've paid for that haul you sllre don't want to miss a show! We can't bring our normal massive set-up) because it's too hard to get everything there, so we have to be creative with our packing and set-up and buy a few things when we get there. Then we need to rent golf carts for most of the shows, because clearly I can't ship ours across the country, and shows such as Kentllcky, the Hamptons (N.Y.) and Saugerties (N.Y.) are very spread out.

A Whole Different Ballgame Getting ti,e riders prepared, botll mentally and physically, is ana ti,er integral part of the trip. In advance of our trip this year, I've encouraged Illy riders to get fitter, on and off th e horse. If you're plltting all tills time, money and effort into making th e trek, you want to get the absolute most out of it every time you're in tile ring. Whetller I'm talking to someone who rides in the small ponies or 3-foot amateurs, I remind my clients that if you're going to Kentucky in August, it's probably going to be hot and humid, and you need to be able to ride and not pass out. It sou nds silly to people who live in that climate, but most of my riders think 86 with dt}, heat is a hot day. \ !\Ihen you're showing in 98 degrees with 90 percent humidity, it really takes it out of you. Before we head east, I also have had my jUlllor and amateur riders enter several derbies, classics and night classes in tI,eir shows at home so tlley can get comfortable rid ing in higher pressure situations-<1nything that will help establish a baseline of confidence to help them in East Coast equitation finals or big hunter shows. Once we're out east, I make sure my riders get to their shows a day earlier than they might normally in CalifOflua, because they and their horses need to ge t comfortable with the new venue's layout. That way they can just

WOlTY about riding the fi rst day of the show, like the majority of other riders there, who've already competed there a hundred times. For as far as we can see into the future, \!\Iest Coast riders will probably still need to go east to get the top-level experiences in sport. I wish all my horses and riders could do so at least once, but that wish is often umealistic. Yet for those who can get to the National Horse Show (Ky.), the Hampton Classic (N.Y.), the Pennsylvania National, the Washington International (D.C.), Capital Challenge (Md.) or any of the otl,er East Coast fall shows, it's usually a life-changing experience.

National Museum of the American Indian and Washington International Horse Show Team Up to Celebrate Horses August 31, 2011--The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Washington International Horse Show announce a new partnership to celebrate horses in Native American culture and equestrian sport throughout history. The museum opens “A Song for the Horse Nation” Saturday, Oct. 29, at its flagship museum on the National Mall, a major exhibition that explores the role horses have played in Native culture from the 1500s to the present. The exhibition runs through Jan. 7, 2013. The Washington International Horse Show celebrates its 53rd year Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center. Together, the two organizations will celebrate these occasions with free family programs on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the museum, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at Verizon Center, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and all day Sunday, Oct. 30, at the museum. A free shuttle service between the museum and Verizon Center will be provided by Reston Limousine on Saturday. Activities include free pony rides at Verizon Center Oct. 29 for WIHS Kids’ Day, war-pony painting demonstrations by Crow equestrian and tribal general council member Kennard Real Bird, storytelling by award-winning children’s book author and illustrator S.D. Nelson (Standing Rock Sioux), hands-on ledger-art lessons and much more at both locations. “What better way for us to come together to illuminate our shared history and distinct cultures than through our mutual admiration for horses,” said museum director, Kevin Gover (Pawnee). “This unique collaboration celebrates the indomitable spirit not just of the Horse Nation, but of the whole nation. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Washington International Horse Show and know that the spectators at Verizon Center and the visitors to the museum will be, too.” “The Washington International Horse Show is honored to partner with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, two great Washington institutions coming together to celebrate horses and equestrian sport,” said Bridget Love Meehan, executive director, Washington International Horse Show. “Aligning our organization with one of the world’s most recognized cultural institutions allows the Washington International Horse Show to share the drama, beauty and athleticism of world-class equestrian sport with millions of people worldwide and honor the significance of the horse throughout our nation’s history.” The D.C. Mounted Police and Real Bird will present the U.S. and Crow Nation colors on horseback Saturday at 3 p.m. on the museum’s Outdoor Welcome Plaza, while singer KJ Jacks (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma) performs the U.S. national anthem. Real Bird will also participate in the opening procession of the Washington International Horse Show Friday evening, Oct. 28, at Verizon Center. (A surprise, kid-friendly character will also provide lively updates via Twitter during the exhibition’s run.)

Will This Be the Year D'Ambrosio's "Sweet" Record Finds a New High? The French word "Puissance" means power and certainly when one thinks of the Washington International Horse Show's Puissance clasR with the ever rising wn.ll, that name is quite appropriate. Traditionally the Puissance takes place Friday night (which tlus year is October 28th) during the 1\lesday through Sunday Horse Show (Oclober 25+30) at Verizon Center. WIHS is a powerhouse event from the line' up of Olympic veterans (both horses and riders), to the list of celebrity and high'profile competitors and spectators, and the classes lllld enter" tainment. It's one of those events you should be ma.r king down on your calendar now. While the WIHS roster of events offers much to enjoy, it is the appeal of the Puissance tha t makes it a highlight of the schedule. The audience delights in the hope that perhaps this will be the year the 26-year-old record will be broken.

It was in 1983 that Anthony d'Ambrosio, Red Hook, NY, aboard Sweet 'n' Low, a 17 .1 -hand Thoroughbred gelding, set the indoor record of 7' 7 Y2" that no one has yet to beat. though many have tried. Last year Pablo Barrios attempted to break tha t record on G&C Blanchee Z. owned by G&C Farm and Gustavo & Carolina Mirabal. but PAGE 16

as many before him discovered, those slices of wall are hard to clear with each raised inch. For Anthony it was a lmost an art form to jump the big wall and it was a combination o f his experience and Sweet 'n' low's incredible talent that glided them over the wall that year. Anthony's passion for competition began when he was nine years old. "I became more serious at 13, when I won the first Puissance I competed in on a horse called Sir Winston af the Jun'ior Essex Troop Horse Show in New Jersey," he said.

At 16, he began riding as a Junior/Professional. and his percentages were quite good. "I probably won more than 50 percent of the Puissance classes I was in," he admitted. Setting records began early. In 1973, at age 19, he rode Sympatico at the National Horse Show avera 7'4" wall. In 1983 at WIHS, when he and Sweet 'n' Low cleared 7'7 !f2", he broke his own record, and that set by Barney Ward the year before aboard Glandor Akai (7'6 3/. ").

While any wall requires a powerful jump, as the inches raise so does the feeling. "The most noticeable difference about jumping a big wall is how much longer it tokes from take-off to touch down and the descent gets steeper as the wall gets larger," he explained. "As far as balance goes, the ideo is the some in terms of supporting one's position and balance, and this can be done in different styles, allhough the classic style is the best. The difference is that there is a significant loss of forward motion over the jump, so the balance has to be maintained throughout this process." D' Ambrosio, who believes practice makes perfect, gave his horses mileage at home, where he had his own Puissance wall set up. And it wasn't always the height he was going after but rather the skill of what it takes to negotiate a Puissance wall.

â&#x20AC;˘

"I taught them how to jump a wall ... how to make the effort" he explained. Timing for raising the wall at home coincided with when they were approaching a major challenge, such as the Puissance at Washington or at the National. At home, while there were no records to be broken, he'd generally not even reach 7', because that was the warm-up and he wanted the peaking to take place during the competition. Anthony explained that the purpose of the warm-up at home was to get his horse to understand "what to do and what kind of shape he had to be in, in order to jump the wall successfully ." That day when they soared to new heights is still ever present in his memory, especially the last attempt when the wall was set at the record height of 7'7 W'. "I was very focused at the time, and approached the wall in the same manner as in the previous attempts, but with greater encouragement and support as the wall became larger."

PAGE 18

These days, while his record-setting career is now just a wonderful m emory, he continues I}is passion for negotiating courses from the ground. He now holds an International FEI judge's license and was the course designer at the 2009 World Cup Finals in Las Vegas.

I Rules for Puissance competitions are clearly defined with five being the maximum number of rounds that any horse can jump and, after the Initial round, there Is no clock ticking away for this competi tion . The class includes more than just the wall. The first round is set with four to six fences (Including the wall) at a minimum height of 4'6 ", which is used to set the and warm-up the horses for the big challenge . each subsequent round the wall height increases the total number of additional fences decreas there is just the wall and one additional fence. the fifth round only one rider and horse are to clear the wall, then the victory goes to them, if the riders remain tied, the prize money is shared.

" Depending on the size of the wall, one has to approac h w ith the correct amoun t of impulsion, a nd also some, but not a great amount, o f speed. The horse has to be plac ed for take-off at the base of the wall, so that he is asked to fuJiy engage the hind-

quarters for the effort fhat is req uired. This is best done in a relatively fluid way, so fhal the horse, while compressing and otherwise preparing for a great effort, remains supple enough to find the proper bascule to clear the wall ."

I, clear the higher heights, d' Ambrosio suggests that, "an athletic, fearless horse is a good start. As far as type, J jumped the biggest walls of my career with Thoroughbred horses ranging from 15.2 to 17.1 hands, On different occasions I won with Warm bloods as well. All of these horses seemed to instinctively know how to achieve the proper bascule over a large vertical jump."

While one might think that it's all about Puissance power, it's also clear that jumping the Puissance wall also requires an understanding by both horse and rider of what it takes to clear this type of fence. With his record holding now for 28 years, Anthony Anthony continued by comparing how ne- d' Ambrosio has shown that his feat was gotiating grand prix jumps differs from jump- even greater than ever imagined . ing the big wall noting, "A normal grand prix jump requires many of the same elements For those who have a passion for the power ! described.

eorgina Bloomberg, who will likely be among the many top equestrians competing at the Washington International Horse Show at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. October 25-20, knows aJi about proper riding attire. As a little girl, she showed ponies at all the top horse shows, including the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair along suburban Philadelphia's Main Line. She wore jodhpurs and paddock boots while riding small ponies and, because "my trainer was very strict, I had to wear my hair in pigtails until I was about ten years old." It was about this time when Georgina recalls getting her first pair of tall boots. "Getting the tall boots was very exciting," she adds. The hunter classes in the horse shows today have evolved from serving as an exclusive competition for foxhunters to a sport that attracts a wide variety of riders. In the 1950s, competitors in the hunter classes wore the same attire as they would in the field, with heavy wool jackets, canary yellow vests and white stock ties.

"In today's hunter show ring you'll find the riders in laced field boots, primarily black although we're seeing a comeback of the dark brown field boot," says Jill Apfelbaum , owner of Malvem Saddlery in Pennsylvania. "Breeches are varied shades of a traditional tan with a suede knee patch worn with a brown belt. and there's a wide range of acceptable colors in the traditional threebutton show coat . Colors should be kept conservative and are generaUy in the darker range of black, navy, gray or brown with small plaids and pinstripes totally acceptable." Ladies will be seen in the traditional 'ratcatcher' shirts with a band collar and matching choker worn over the neckband . Frequently the ladies have a very attractive monogram on the chokers embroidered to coordinate the shirt and jacket combination of the rider.

EUTE EQ!JESTRlAN


"When I rode hunters, "Georgina recalls, "I always tried to chose a jacket to compliment my horse's color." For a chestnut horse, it has been noted that any dark rich brown or navy coat would be appropriate. However, a tacky and flashy strong color lining of hot pink is sometimes incorrectly chosen by teenage girls. Better to stick with traditional conservative dark hues.

"By thinking of the total color coordination of horse and rider, a very eyepleasing picture catches the judge's eye as you enter the ring where first impressions count," adds Jill, also a lifelong equestrian. As Ivy Maddison observed in her 1924 book: "While occasionally one does see a badly gotup rider put up a good performance, such an exhibition never fails to call forth surprised comment from any real horsewoman or horseman who may be present." In 1922, etiquette maven Emily Post noted: "A riding habit, no matter what the fashion happens to be, is like a uniform, in that it must be made and worn according to regulations. It must above all be meticulously trig and compact. Nothing must be sticking out a thousandth part of an inch that can be f1attene9 in." She also wrote that; "if you want to see a living example of perfection in riding clothes, go to the next horse show, where Miss Belle Beach is riding and look at her!" Today, the same also can be said for Georgina Bloomberg.

Especially at the HITS Million Dollar Weekend, Sept. 10-11 in New York, where the top 10 were presented checks far larger than the usual victory prizes. In hardfought contests, California riders Duncan McFarlane and Nick Haness scored second prize in their respective classes, the Pfizer $1 Million Grand Prix and the Diamond Mills $500,000 Hunter Prix. McFarlane took home $200,000 for his near-perfect ride aboard Mr. Wboopy.

Gearing Up for

Tevis Cup Weather; starting order among endurance racers' concerns By Paula Parisi One hundred miles in 24 hours on horseback - that's the Western States Trail Foundation's Tevis Cup enqurance race. Riders who've made the trek from Lake Taboe to Auburn describe it as an adrenaline-fueled test of strength, will and strategy that sees them trotting along narrow switchbacks edged by thousandfoot drops, climbing 50-degree inclines and crossing a trestle that spans 300-feet over the California River, I 50-feet below. Those taking part in the 56th iteration Oct. 8-9 will also face some new obstacles in the form of three hours of additional darkness, fresh snow and new rules for the starting order. No wonder only half the starters will make the finish line and receive the coveted Tevis belt buckle that signifies they've completed the race. (Editor's note: Late on Oct. 6 the Tevis race was rerouted due to the harsh weather conditions.)

Karen Brisling rides at 3-Day Ranch that," said Los Angeles rider Melanie Mullens, who will be competing in the short format with her horse McLaren. Of the classic, she said, '1t's more involved, and is quite a testament to the people who run Galway and the volunteers that make it happen." The Galway Downs 3-Day classic format training level class is expected to have 4j)-50 e.ntrants: A CCI 1* classic is also.being offered, and is expected to have 10-12 participants. Karen Bristing, who owns Equinox Equestrian Center in La Tuna Canyon is headed to Galway Downs to compete at the Preliminary Level on her horse First Field. Asked what drew her to eventing, she replied, ''Most eventers would respond that they do it for the thrill of cross country. I would add that I do it for the challenge of reachiog our personal best in all phases at each competition. It is hard to get bored when you have three disciplines to work on!" As with any equestrian discipline, hard work is what moves you up the levels, and Bristing - a wife and mother of two - said moving from Training to Preliminary required her to regularly ride five days a week, which wasn't easy. ''My family has been so supportive. I've given it my all to get to Galway. There are times I ask myself, 'Why am I doing this?' I'm almost 50 years old. Then you get out there, and it's like 'Oh yeah, because it's fun! '" While the Galway Downs event offers something for every rider, it's the CCI 3 * that is the centerpiece of the event. This is only the second year that level has been offered there. It is one of only four 3*s in North America, and the only one west of the Mississippi. "It was a huge achievement Jast year for Robert to offer it. We had four riders from the East Coast come out to compete - and in fact one of them, Jennie Brannigan, won [on Cambalda]. This year we are expecting as many as 10 or 12." Because 2012 is an Olympic year, the timing works well for Galway. One of the requirements to be considered for selection for the team is to have competed in a 4* event There is only one of those held in the U.S., the Rolex 3-Day Event in Kentucky, April 26-29. And to qualifY to compete at Rolex, the FEI reqnires two 3 * scores. "Galway Downs is the last chance before Kentucky to get that second 3 * score," Strassburger said. 'We're in the right place at the right time."

Maryland Dominates at WIHS Barn Night

Maryland Dominates at WIHS Barn Night

Hunters and Jumpers News

Posted by Editor October 29, 2011 Yes, our Equiery barns ROCK! Perennial Barn Night rivals Meadowbrook Stables (Chevy Chase) and Full Moon Farm (pictured left) faced off for the major wins, but with Meadowbrook edging out Full Moon for largest group (Full Moon received an honorable mention placement as largest Maryland barn because Meadowbrook’s overall win made them ineligible for the state category). Rock Creek Park Horse Center, which is in D.C. but is on the Maryland-side of the Potomac (so we claim them as an “Equiery barn”) won the banner contest, with Full Moon taking the reserve and Four Quarters (Hampstead) earning an honorable mention. For best barn video, Maryland did not fare as well, with Virginia barn taking champion and reserve

with the following Maryland barns receiving honorable mentions: En-tice-ment, Full Moon and Four Quarters. However, we rock when it comes to spirit! Meadowbrook took the champion, Full Moon the reserve and Rock Creek the honorable. Barn night attracted over 1,000 local barn rats to enjoy the costumed Gambler’s Choice, which featured the joker fence made out of cupcakes courtesy of new sponsor and TLC reality-show Georgetown Cupcakes and were able to cheer on Maryland rider Elizabeth Rae (we know her as Elizabeth Eaton) from Winfield Farm in Woodbine; Elizabeth, costumed as a peace-loving hippie and her Peace of Blue finished 14th out of 19 riders.

National Museum at WIHS Exhibition Grand Opening Oct. 29-30 and Free Kids’ Day Author: Washington International Horse Show |

Date Added: August 30,2011 |

Send to Friend | Print Version

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Washington International Horse Show announce a new partnership to celebrate horses in Native American culture and equestrian sport throughout history. The museum opens “A Song for the Horse Nation” Saturday, Oct. 29, at its flagship museum on the National Mall, a major exhibition that explores the role horses have played in Native culture from the 1500s to the present. The exhibition runs through Jan. 7, 2013. The Washington International Horse Show celebrates its 53rd year Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center. Together, the two organizations will celebrate these occasions with free family programs on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the museum, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at Verizon Center, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and all day Sunday, Oct. 30, at the museum. A free shuttle service between the museum and Verizon Center will be provided by Reston Limousine on Saturday.                                      Activities include free pony rides at Verizon Center Oct. 29 for WIHS Kids’ Day, war-pony painting demonstrations by Crow equestrian and tribal general council member Kennard Real Bird , storytelling by award-winning children’s book author and illustrator S.D. Nelson (Standing Rock Sioux), hands -on ledger -art lessons and much more at both locations. “What better way for us to come together to illuminate our shared history and distinct cultures than through our mutual admiration for horses,” said museum director, Kevin Gover (Pawnee). “This unique collaboration celebrates the indomitable spirit not just of the Horse Nation, but of the whole nation. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Washington International Horse Show and know that the spectators at Verizon Center and the visitors to the museum will be, too.” “The Washington International Horse Show is honored to partner with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, two great Washington institutions coming together to celebrate horses and equestrian sport,” said Bridget Love Meehan, executive director, Washington International Horse Show. “Aligning our organization with one of the world’s most recognized cultural institutions allows the Washington International Horse Show to share the drama, beauty and athleticism of world-class equestrian sport with millions of people worldwide and honor the significance of the horse throughout our nation’s history.” The D.C. Mounted Police and Real Bird will present the U.S. and Crow Nation colors on horseback Saturday at 3 p.m. on the museum’s Outdoor Welcome Plaza, while singer KJ Jacks (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma) performs the U.S. national anthem. Real Bird will also participate in the opening procession of the Washington International Horse Show Friday evening, Oct. 28, at Verizon Center. (A surprise, kid-friendly character will also provide lively updates via Twitter during the exhibition’s run.)  

About the National Museum of the American Indian The National Museum of the American Indian is the 18th museum of the Smithsonian Institution. It is the first national museum dedicated to the preservation, study and exhibition of the life, languages, literature, history and arts of Native Americans. Established by an act of Congress in 1989 (amendment in 1996), the museum works in collaboration with the Native peoples of the Western Hemisphere and others to protect and foster their cultures by reaffirming traditions and beliefs, encouraging contemporary artistic expression and empowering the Indian voice. www.AmericanIndian.si.edu

Vote! The 53rd Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) hosted the best hunter, jumper, and equitation riders in the nation competing for top prizes at Verizon Center in downtown Washington, D.C. over six days of competition, and the WIHS thanks all of the sponsors, employees, exhibitors, volunteers, and spectators for making this year's show an incredible success.

 From the puissance to ponies, the best in equestrian sport competed at the WIHS, and with community events like Barn Night and Kid's Day, entertaining exhibitions, and incredible competition, the show brought horses to the city in fine fashion. Nick Skelton and Carlo 273 Capture Victory in $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix, CSI 3*-W presented by Events DC Nick Skelton captured another big win at the 53rd Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), this time taking home the largest purse with Beverley Widdowson's Carlo 273 in the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix CSI 3*-W presented by Events DC. Along with prize money, Skelton was awarded a Rolex watch from Tiny Jewel Box as the Leading Jumper Rider sponsored by Elm Rock LLC. Skelton and Carlo 273, a 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Contender, were the last to go clear in the opening round of 24 entries over a course designed by Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC. First up in the jump-off was Davis on Nemo 119, a 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cambridge owned by Old Oak Farm. They had two rails to finish with eight faults in 39.74 seconds for third place. Brianne Goutal and Nice de Prissey, a 10-year-old Selle Francais stallion by Rosire owned by Remarkable Farms LP, had an unfortunate rail for four faults in 43.00 seconds, but that would hold up for second place. Margie Engle (USA) followed next on Indigo, an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding by Indoctro owned by Griese/Garber/Hidden Creek and Gladewinds. They dropped two rails for eight faults and with a slower time of 40.41 seconds, they would place fourth. Last to go, Skelton knew that he had to produce a clear jumping round for the win. He took some extra time, but it was enough for victory. He and Carlo 273 stopped the timers in 46.32 seconds with two time faults. "Actually I don’t like those jump offs when there are no clears and you have to go last," Skelton admitted. "You can make a mistake. If they had all been clear, at least you can go in there and go faster, but when you are in that position you have to be careful. I prefer to have other clears, to have to go fast and attack. Also the time was very tight, so I got two time faults. It was a good class. The horse jumped great and I thought the course was fair for the amount of riders that were in it." Skelton described Carlo as a "very talented horse." He continued, "He is very careful. He has all the jump and he has a great mind. He really wants to do it, so that makes my life easier." For their victory, Skelton and Carlo 273 were presented with the President of the United States

 Boggio was presented The WIHS Equitation Classic Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. G. Ralph Ours, III and was awarded a pair of custom chaps provided by Journeymen Saddlers, Ltd. Tonight’s victory was particularly exciting for the rider given that he had previously been in the top ten for this class three times before finally putting his name on the elite list of winners. He finished seventh in 2008, second in 2009, and eighth in 2010.  
 Massimo was awarded The Lugano Memorial Trophy donated by Stoney Hill as the winning horse of the night. In last year’s competition, Massimo helped put rider Lillie Keenan in the winner’s circle after she rode the big gray in the final work-off. This year he carried both the first and second place finishers through excellent rounds. Trainer Christina Schlusemeyer found the talented gelding in Europe two years ago and knew that he would be the perfect horse to guide Boggio to a national championship.
 "I purchased Massimo in November of 2009, and he has been amazing for me," Boggio explained. "When I tried him in Europe he was very green and could not canter in a straight line. I told Christina he could never do the equitation, but she said 'He'll do it, just watch.' He has just been so easy; he never does anything bad. Massimo truly is the deluxe equitation horse." Commenting on his victory, Boggio smiled, "It means a lot to win here. I've been second in pretty much every big class that there is in the United States, so it feels good to finally win one." Later in the afternoon, the young riders competed in the WIHS Pony Equitation Classic Finals with a win for 13-year-old Ali Tritschler riding Rose Hill Farm’s Hallelujah. Tritschler earned the high score of 85 over fences and came out on top after a final work-off. For her victory, Tritschler was presented The Jane Marshall Dillon Memorial Perpetual Trophy donated by the friend and students of Mrs. Jane Marshall Dillon. She was also awarded a pair of custom chaps provided by Journeymen Saddlers, Ltd. Emma Lemke finished second, Audrey Muscari third, and Daisy Farish fourth.

William Steinkraus Honored at the Washington International Horse Show | EquiSearch

He will be honored at this week's Washington International Horse Show in conjunction with the Show Jumping Hall of Fame, which included him in its first group of inductees 24 years ago. This is part of a new program being initiated for shows hosting classes in the Hall of Fame Jumper Classic series. The hope is to educate the next generation in the show jumping sport about legends, such as William Steinkraus, who have helped make it what it is today. A much-admired stylist on horseback, his athletic ability was aided by a unique intellectual perspective. It is detailed in his best-known book, "Riding and Jumping," which has become a classic, as well as in the sequel, "Reflections on Riding and Jumping." The multi-talented rider is a violinist who also has served as an expert television commentator for the Olympics and other important competitions. "Billy is one of the most brilliant people I've ever known," said Frank Chapot, who succeeded him as team captain. "He was a great leader; very polite and very genuine." Advertisement

Bill left Yale University to serve in World War II, but as the Army became mechanized, he found himself in Burma with the last active cavalry unit, involved with a contingent of pack mules. After the 1948 Olympic Games, the Army stopped fielding equestrian teams and in 1950, the U.S. Equestrian Team was created to fill the void. Bill, who had gone back to Yale and graduated, joined the fledgling organization in its second year. By 1952, he was riding in the first of the five Olympic Games in which he would participate. His contributions to the team were legion, both in and out of the saddle. "As a rider and a strategist, nobody was better. He could ride with the best," recalled Frank, who first went to Europe with Bill and the team in 1956. "Billy could hang in there with the D'Inzeos and Hans Gunter Winkler and we didn't have good horses then," recalled Frank, referring to the top Italian and German riders of the day. At that time, the principals of the USET and American Horse Shows Association included Whitney Stone, William Joshua Barney and Walter Devereaux, men who wanted to insure that the country excelled on the world equestrian stage.

"He was the only American who had the prestige and the knowledge to further our status in international competition." Although another legend and Hall of Fame member, Hungarian immigrant Bertalan de Nemethy, coached the jumping team, "Billy would say who was going to ride first and who was going to ride last in the Nations' Cup. He knew what horses to use in what classes and what horses not to use," explained Frank. George Morris, who also was once Bill's teammate and now serves as the U.S. show jumping coach, remembered that the captain of the squad "was the riding example and the mentor. "Billy's a renaissance man," said George. "He's a gentleman of the highest class and very well-schooled, very intelligent and a nice person. This carried over into the horse business. He was a horseman of the first class. He was meticulous, he was scrupulously clean; his horses were the same." The dapper Hungarian coach and the conscientious team captain were a good combination. "Billy brought to Bert the American connection," explained George. "He was the interpreter for Bert, the liaison with the American professional horsemen, and indoctrinated him into the American way of working with people and horses." Discussing the dynamics of the relationship, George observed, "Billy was just peaking, in a sense, when Bert came in the picture." 1 2 next > last >> Posted in Nancy Jaffer | Leave a comment EquiSearch.com on Facebook Like Confirm

Postcard: 2011 Washington International Horse Show

Great Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Skelton is a star at the Washington International Horse Show, as entertainment and shopping fill out the program of a fabulous competition at the Verizon Center in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Postcard sponsored by Bates Saddles.

By Nancy Jaffer Oct. 30, 2011 -- Remember when horse shows were fun, and even (gasp!) entertaining? The Washington International Horse Show at the Verizon Center harks back to that era, with great competition accessorized by fun exhibitions and lots of shopping. A big part of the Washington International Horse Show's charm stems from being in the heart of a major city, a block or two from top restaurants and good hotels, as well as museums and historic attractions within comfortable walking distance for those who have time to spare between classes. Staging a fixture of the North American fall indoor circuit in the Verizon Center, an arena that houses hockey and basketball teams, is a challenge: For the organizers, the riders and the horses living in stables on the street -- especially when the weather turns as cold as it did yesterday and there's a dusting of snow. But it definitely is worth it for the amazing atmosphere. You know you're at a show, not just another competition that too closely resembles all the others you've been to this year.

Postcard: 2011 Washington International Horse Show | EquiSearch

I love the Washington International Horse Show, but this year I loved it more, because I sensed a renewed energy and vigor. And I wasn't alone. Brianne Goutal, who finished second in the prestigious $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix (more on that later) felt it too. "I've been coming here since I was on ponies," said Brianne, who won the show's equitation classic in 2004. Advertisement

"It's always been one of the peak stops on my year-long circuit. To me, it's really nice to have a big final in a big city. It's a very patriotic event. "I think they did an amazing job this year running the show. It's sort of had a revamping in the past two years and it's really nice to see a big crowd come and support the show. It's a great show to come to. You have to work a lot around the close quarters; the temperature was a little cold -- actually, it was a lot cold, but everybody works together and I love coming here." A great deal of the energy can be attributed to its devoted president, Juliet Reid, who puts her heart and soul into it. There were several innovations this year, including live streaming Internet video of the competitions and a private VIP dining area, the Fidelity Investments Club, overlooking the ring. I slid through the dark blue drapes there and enjoyed the view while talking with Juliet, whose upbeat presence has inspired the show's reinvention. She and I chatted about the 2011 edition.

Great Britain's Nick Skelton capped off a spectacular show at the Washington International by winning the President's Cup grand prix on Carlo and taking the open jumper rider title. Photo Š 2011 by Lawrence J. Nagy Now that I've set the stage, you'll understand how important the President's Cup is. It's not the grand prix du jour; this class is one of those iconic athletic events people remember through the years. Canada's Michel Vaillancourt, the course designer, had quite a challenge. "It's a very prestigious event, it is a World Cup qualifier, so you have to respect some of the standards," said Michel who just has been named the course designer for the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto. "We had a very good crowd, so we also need to acknowledge them, and not necessarily do what is right just for us, but we need to provide them with some kind of a spectacle," he said. This was an unusual year, because a number of riders who normally would compete at Washington were at the Pan American Games in Mexico, so Michel was working with a 24-horse field. With a larger group, he enjoys more chances of people coming through to the jump-off, so he had to walk a delicate line. "I'd rather build for 50, then I can build a little more strong," he said, but it was plenty difficult. Only four riders qualified for the jump-off; New Yorker Brianne with Nice de Prissey and California's Lucy Davis on Nemo, representing the younger generation, while Margie Engle of Florida aboard Indigo (her Pennsylvania National grand prix winner earlier in the month) and Great Britain's Nick Skelton on Carlo had the advantage of vast experience.

Nick Skelton clears the 7-foot wall on Unique to win the puissance. Photo © 2011 by Lawrence J. Nagy Nick also was on a roll. He won Friday night's popular puissance, where he got a standing ovation after clearing the 7-foot wall on Unique, and also took a prize in a speed class earlier that day on the same versatile mount. He carried that streak into the President's Cup, yet he felt he was at a disadvantage going last in the tiebreaker -- usually the favored spot in a jump-off. Lucy had two fences down, while Brianne toppled one pole, and then Margie surprisingly had two down and was slower than Lucy. It was all Nick's to win, and he had to choose his strategy -- go fast and beat Brianne's time if he had a rail, or go slowly to make sure everything stayed up. He picked the latter, and incurred two time penalties, but that edged Brianne's four. Nick, an Olympic veteran and World Cup champion who knows whereof he speaks, doesn't like that kind of jump-off. "When there's no clear and you're last to go, you have to jump clear, that's when you can make a mistake. I'd prefer if they all went clear and it was faster. At least you'd get going there...and attack." In the position in which he found himself, "You've got to be really careful," he pointed out. Nick's precision with his beautiful gray was awesome, so his gamble paid off. A lesser rider would have been hard-pressed to make it happen. Carlo took a break last year while Nick had a hip replacement and shoulder surgery, but the two seemed very much in tune and a good prospect for next year's London Olympics. 1 2 next > last >> Posted in Nancy Jaffer, News | Leave a comment EquiSearch.com on Facebook Like

A Song for the Horse Nation Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian October 26, 2011

Washington, D.C.'s new exhibition featuring horses in Native cultures. by Darley Newman A new reason to make a trip to our nation's capital is the interesting and colorful exhibit “A Song for the Horse Nation” at The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. This morning, I was treated to a preview of the exhibition, which opened October 29th and runs through January 7, 2013, and was able to meet the curator of the exhibition Emil Her Many Horses (Oglala Lakota). If you are interested in horses, history, Native American culture or all of the above, it's worth a trip. Those who enjoy viewing historic tack are in for a real treat.

Me with Emil Her Many Horses (Oglala Lakota), curator of the exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. The exhibition was first shown at the museum’s George Gustav Heye Center in New York and doubles its exhibition space on the National Mall. On display are artifacts, artwork, photographs, songs and personal essays from Emil Her Many Horses and others collected over time. Horses arrived on the scene in North America in the 1700's and would dramatically change history and the way Native cultures lived, worked, fought, thought and survived. I was able to more fully grasp these historic changes and the intense bond that humans have shared with horses throughout time, as I examined horses celebrated on everything from clothing to artwork to a 16-foot-tall, 38-foot-circumference Lakota tipi, decorated with 110 hand-painted horses.

Oglala Lakota beaded horse mask, ca. 1904. Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota. Seed beads, hide, and sinew. National Museum of the American Indian (1413). I was most impressed with the beaded horse designs on many of the items on display. Some of the saddles made of deer or elk antlers and wood and rawhide looked downright painful, while other elaborately beaded soft pad saddles filled with buffalo hair looked really comfortable. This is what a rider thinks about at an exhibition like this! Many saddles were either frame saddles, made of wood and antler, or pad saddles, soft pillow-like saddles constructed from tanned hide and filled with hair or other material. These pad saddles were used by the Plains Indians during battles or for racing and hunting. I stood marveling at one common Cree style of pad saddle with its red, white and green beading. It would have been used for parades or traded for goods.

Lakota painted drum, ca. 1860s. South Dakota or North Dakota. Pigment, rawhide, wood, wool cloth, and sinew. National Museum of the American Indian (10/5940). Native horse traditions continue today. We've been able to experience and film these in Cherokee, North Carolina, riding in the Great Smoky Mountains in the Equitrekking Carolinas episode and in Equitrekking Arizona, riding with the Navajo in Canyon de Chelly. In the exhibition, I learned more about the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) Young Horsemen’s Program, which seeks to preserve the Appaloosa horse breed made famous by their ancestors. There's a short video you can watch filmed with the Nez Perce and their horses.

Apsáalooke (Crow) horse crupper, ca. 1885. Montana. Seed beads, wool cloth, tin cones, hide, rawhide, ribbon, and cotton thread. National Museum of the American Indian (2/3106). One part of the exhibit that I found really interesting was a chart that showed the going rate for trading horses on early 1800's trade routes. One fine racing horse would demand ten guns. One fine hunting horse could be traded for several pack animals. To get one ordinary riding horse, you had a few options, including eight buffalo robes or fifteen eagle feathers.

Piikuni (Blackfeet) elk-skin robe with painted decoration by Mountain Chief, mid-1800s. Montana. Pigment and hide. National Museum of the American Indian (22/1878). “For some Native peoples, the horse still is an essential part of daily life,” said Emil Her Many Horses (Oglala Lakota), curator of the exhibition. “For others, the horse will always remain an element of our identity and our history. The Horse Nation continues to inspire, and Native artists continue to celebrate the horse in our songs, our stories and our works of art.”

Chatting With Don Stewart and Donovan Hasbrouck about Horses and The Washington International by Diana De Rosa

October 25-30 at Verizon Center in the heart of Washington, DC. Here’s what they had to say.

get back to bed. So at the end you are really exhausted. But it’s worth it. Q: Any final thoughts?

Hasbrouck Donovan Q: What are your earliest memories of being on a horse or pony? HD: The first pony that I ever rode was a white pony named Howie. I was 4 so I don’t really remember how it felt (to be honest). Growing up my favorite place to go was this very old backyard barn where I would get very dirty, but it was so much fun. There were just horses and ponies and chickens and dogs. I would be there all day and even in the summer and just loved every minute of grooming, mucking stalls, feeding, and even watching a pony be born.

HD: Horses have totally shaped who I am today. I have been riding since I was four and started with Bibby Hill when I was on medium ponies. Bibby gave me such a great foundation and helped build my confidence when I started on my first Junior Hunter (Eastwood). I have been riding with Bibby and Don and they have really helped me to grow and mature as a person and as a rider. We are on the road a lot so you learn to be organized and to manage your time well with school work.

Don Stewart

Q: What is it about horses that has given you the desire to focus most of your extra time and energy into your riding? Hasbrouck at 2010 WIHS Eq Finals aboard Confidential (photo: Diana De Rosa) Well known trainer Don Stewart is always on the go with the many riders he works with. Among those is Hasbrouck Donovan, Gainesville, FL, a 17-year-old young rider, who has reached many milestones in her career but still has more to go. In order to stay competitive Hasbrouck is finishing her senior year of high school online, which gives her more time to ride during the day. She will be attending Auburn University in 2012. Her dad is the head basketball coach for the Florida Gators. She has two brothers, one sister and four dogs. Don’s career spans 30 years and is filled with accomplishments and accolades on all levels. He has judged for over 30 years at some of the country’s top shows including Devon, Palm Beach, Maclay Regional, and L.A. National. Don’s success as a trainer includes three USEF Medal Finals winners, four ASPCA Maclay winners, and two USEF Pony Medal Finals. An accomplished rider, Don was the Leading Rider at Devon ‘92, the National in ’93 and ’95, and still holds the honor of being the only rider to win the Chronicle’s Hunter Horseman of the Year two times. Don has been the Chairman and served on the USHJA Junior Hunter Committee over the past 25 years and owns Don Stewart Stables, Inc. in Ocala, FL, where he resides with Nancy, his wife of 28 years, and their 3 children, rd Whitney, Don 3 and Erin, the 2002 ASPCA Maclay Finals winner (which was the last time it was at WIHS), WIHS Best Child Rider in 2001 and 2002 and WIHS Leading A/O Rider in 2009. We caught up with both Hasbrouck and Don to talk about riding and training in general and specifically about the Washington International Horse Show, which both trainer and student have taken part in for many years. This year’s show will takes place

HD: I want to be the best rider that I can be. I realize that it takes a lot of time and dedication but I want to give it my all. Having the barn only 30 minutes away allows me to ride 6 days a week. Besides my own horses I get to ride a lot of Don’s sale horses so I get exposed to a lot of different rides. Q: The Washington International is a show you go to just about every year. What is it about that show that keeps you coming back? HD: Washington has always been my favorite of all the horse shows. I think it is so exciting to be in the heart of DC. My older brother, Billy, is going to college at Catholic University, so he always comes with some of his friends so that makes it special in another way.

Q: What is it about Hasbrouck that makes her so successful? DS: She has wonderful work ethic and is religious about riding EVERY day possible. She is both passionate about the horses and is very methodical in her practicing. Q: What are her standout achievements?

Q: What are you goals for Washington? HD: I would love to win the Washington Equitation class. I got a ribbon in it last year. I would love to do well in the Junior Jumpers and the Junior Hunters as well. Q: How does competing in the WIHS Equitation division help you with your riding? HD: It is great that you can show in the WIHS Equitation series all year long and check on line how you are doing. I like that it requires you to be consistent in two different type classes: Hunters and Jumpers. Q: Washington is the only indoor show in a major city. What are some of the downsides? HD: The schooling at WIHS is really tough. You are sometimes riding at 3 a.m. and never

DS: Lots of her goals have been reached. She won Best Child Rider, Grand Champion and Reserve Champion at WIHS when she was 14. She won the Maclay Regionals at 13 and placed 9th in the Maclay Finals. She was Champion at Devon in 2011, won the Maclay at Devon in 2010. She has won Derbies and the list goes on and on… Q: What would you still like to see her achieve? DS: She and I would like to see her win the Junior Jumper Championship and WIHS Equitation Championship. Q: What is your very first memory of the Washington International Horse Show? DS: First time I went was with Jeffrey Welles’ family in ‘67, OMG. Like society in general, WIHS has changed immensely. Back then, black tie was the norm at night; big jewels,


formal dresses, spotlight on winners. One of my fondest memories was when Michael D'Ambrosio (Anthony D’Ambrosio’s wife) dressed in a sequined gown led the Grand Hunter Champion mare Mink and Pearls into the arena. What an impression she made! Anyone there would certainly remember it. With not so many shows back then, it was so special. Now we see jeans, some of which cost more than some of my horses. I was in awe of Kathy Kusner, Carol Thompson, Debbie Wilson, Chrystine Jones Tauber. There were so many dignitaries there too. Nowadays, it is a much friendlier atmosphere and not so intimidating, but not as glamorous. Californians would come with every jewel, fur, and enough makeup for all the East Coast (and some riding coats that were a little ostentatious). It was in 1972 that I came with my first students when it was at the old Armory. I could not be that old, could I? Lord help me.

10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in a tent outside Verizon Center. The featured Open Jumper classes begin on Wednesday night. On Thursday night the Gambler’s Choice is when riders are decked in the most inventive costumes. Friday night is the Puissance high-jump, a real favorite of the audience, as horses jump the ever-rising wall. The goal for both the riders and the spectators (who are sitting at the edge of their seats) is to break the record set by Anthony D’Ambrosio in 1983 at 7’7½”. Saturday night is when one elite young rider will claim the WIHS Equitation Championship title, as the top junior riders in the nation vie for this coveted title.

Q: Do your students compete in the WIHS Equitation division throughout the year?

The culminating event of the show is the $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix. Winning that class is one of the goals of every grand prix rider as it is one of the most sought-after titles in the sport.

DS: We have 6 qualified for WIHS Equitation and 3 for WIHS Pony Equitation. We especially like it because you can compete in it all year.

For more information, schedules, and to purchase tickets, visit the WIHS web site at www.wihs.org and be sure to “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/horseshow.

Q: How do you train for Washington?

Devin Seek on 2011 Pony Finals

DS: We are NOT heavy schoolers before the class. We jump a few and go. Schooling is done before the show or at home.

by Courtney Weinzimer

CW: Do you get to spend time with any special friends? DS: I stayed with my friend Laine Grosvenor. We always had a good time whether we were riding or at the camper. CW: What did you do when you weren't riding or showing? DS: We rode all morning and then spent time with friends or I practiced for the lip sync that I did with my friends. CW: Lip Sync? What song did you practice & perform? DS: We did Party Rock Anthem and got our video sent to LMFAO (the people who sing the song)

Sarah Zaki: Who are the family members of the family business? Chuck Waters: I have been in the horse business for 48 years. I have sold hundreds of horses. My wife shows grand prix horses. She rides great; she’s been the highest-scored amateur in the country before. My older daughter, Brett, comes with us to horseshows. Brett is 32 and I have a younger daughter named Hayley who is 15 years old. Hayley is doing very well in the jumpers ring now.

SIDEBAR Only two horses have ever been Grand Junior and Grand during the week at WIHS and both of them, Hilton and Confidential, are owned by Mr. & Mrs. Don Stewart and their daughter Erin.

On Saturday Kids’ Day is front and center with free pony riders, fun family activities, face painting and more. It all happens from

CW: Did you establish specific goals for PF’s? DS: My goals were to work hard and try my hardest.

An interview with Chuck Waters by Sarah Zaki, FE Editorial Intern

DS: The advantages are that it teaches discipline, structure and responsibility. The disadvantages are that it’s hard to have a lot going on at home with peers if you want to reach this level.

Of special note is Barn Night on Thursday night when Verizon Center lights up with all the colorful barn-themed face painting in an effort to win contests and get recognized.

CW: Are Pony Finals your favorite event each year DS: I always look forward to Pony Finals.

A Family Affair The Waters Family of Waterworks Farm

Q: As a young rider what do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of being with horses?

The Washington International Horse Show features hunter, jumper and equitation competition with some fun events included in the mix.

CW: What ponies did you ride & how did you do? DS: I rode Toblerone, owned by Jodie nd Camberg, in the medium and was 2 in the jumping, Seven Hills Misty, owned by Deborah Martaneall (we were 7th overall), and My Boy, owned by Gray Horse Farm, in the medium green.

Devin Seek & Seven Hills Misty at 2011 Pony Finals CW: Was this your first year? DS: This was my fourth year. CW: How old are you? DS: I’m ten. CW: Who do you ride with? DS: Bibby Farmer Hill & Jaime Gibson

SZ: How did the family become involved in the sport? CW: I met my wife at the horseshows. We go to horseshows probably 35 weeks a year so my children didn’t have much escape! SZ: Is there any friendly competition in the family? CW: Much more competition between my wife and daughter, Dana and Hayley. They both show in the Junior/Amateurs together so I am certain there’s a little competitionbut it’s very friendly! At this point, we really

Washington, D.C., August 3, 2011 – The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) is offering an elegant new way to experience the most exciting indoor equestrian sporting event in the country, which will be held October 25-30, 2011, at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The Fidelity Investments® Club, a new VIP dining platform created expressly for the horse show, will offer the best vantage point to watch the top horses and riders in the country, including Olympic veterans, in breathtaking jumping competition. “Dining facilities close to the action are a mainstay of big European horse shows and we are very proud to bring this concept to the Washington International at Verizon Center here in the nation’s capital,” said Juliet W. Reid, WIHS President. Sponsored by Fidelity Investments®, the new hospitality space will be built at the west end of Verizon Center, easily accessible from the arena concourse. “We are very pleased to welcome Fidelity Investments as the title sponsor of this elegant VIP dining facility,” said Bridget Love Meehan, WIHS Executive Director. “The Fidelity Investments Club will be the perfect place to enjoy the show and entertain business associates, clients, family and friends.” “After scouting all possible locations at Verizon Center to create something new and very special for sponsors and friends to enjoy the show, we selected a position near the in-gate, where patrons of the Fidelity Investments Club will have a unique view of the horses and riders as they enter and exit the ring, and get a real sense of the size and scope of the jumps,” added Meehan. Guests at the Fidelity Investments Club, an intimate dining area with 16 tables of eight, will have full access on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. “Fidelity is pleased to support the Washington International Horse Show in this new and exciting venture and we look forward to a successful event in October,” said Steven Niehoff, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Fidelity Investments. The Washington International will continue to offer dining at the popular Acela Club, located at the skybox level overlooking the arena. Both locations will offer buffet dining and a full open bar. Acela Club will also host several social events, including the President’s Cup Party and Brunch at the Barn.

There aren't many shows, if any, where horses are stabled on the crowded downtown streets of a major city like they are at the Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), which will take place Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center, in Washington, D.C. At many shows horses are stabled in tents or permanent stalls at the venue in a pastoral setting with horse-friendly schooling areas and sometimes even hacking trails. But things are a little different at WIHS. When faced with the "un-horse-friendly" challenges of city showing, which include very limited access to schooling areas, an unusual shipping system (First, horses stage at Prince George's Equestrian Center, in Upper Marlboro, Md., before shipping to Washington D.C. in vans supplied by the show's official carrier, Johnson Horse Transportation), and unfamiliar sights, sounds, and smells, what can you do to maintain your horse's health?

Latest News: 2011 AAEP Convention on the Horizon Wildfires: When Evacuation is Not an Option Grazing Muzzles' Efficacy at Reducing Pasture Intake Texas Wildfires: Too Soon to Know How Many Horses Evacuated Read more news...

Stephen G. Soule, VMD, of Wellington, Fla., has been the United States Equestrian Federation show jumping team veterinarian at numerous events around the world, and he was a member of the Veterinary Commission for the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996. Additionally, Soule has been the official veterinarian at the WIHS since 1976, and after 35 years of observing show horses stabled in unique conditions, he offered his perspective and advice. On the positive side, Soule doesn't believe the stabling limitations posed by the WIHS are detrimental to the horse. "I've seen so few problems over the years that I don't think the horses suffer in any way because of this," he explained. "Plus, they can't be longed or ridden for hours so in a way the horses are fresher." On the downside, the biggest problem, in Soule's opinion, is transporting horses between Prince George's Equestrian Center and Verizon Center in such a limited time span.

Competing at the Washington International Horse Show requires bringing the horses into the big city.

"The logistics of transporting horses and housing of everyone is what I feel poses the greatest amount of difficulty," he explained. ""They may arrive at 10:00 the night before and then have to school at odd hours at night "Then when they are finished competing they have to get back onto a truck and travel back. The grooms, riders, and owners also have to make the commute, so, it's a logistical undertaking."

Further, he said, if a rider has horses competing in different divisions, he or she "may have to split up shifts and have the manpower to deal with that since some will have to stay at Prince George's and others at Verizon Center," he explained. "It needs to be well-orchestrated, so logistically it can be very complicated but (in regards to health) for the horses it's not that detrimental."

http://www.thehorse.com/...rce=rss&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheHorse%2FNews+%28TheHorse.com+-+News%29[9/7/2011 11:28:38 AM]


The Horse | Washington International Horse Show: Showing in the City To ensure the horses remain as healthy as possible, Soule emphasized the basics: "Make sure to use the appropriate (protective shipping) boots and bandages and recognize that dealing with transporting horses back and forth in such a limited time period may cause them stress." When (the horses) arrive, grooms and caretakers should be prepared to make the horses as comfortable as possible, as quickly as possible, so they can relax. An additional consideration for horses competing at the WIHS is the documents required by the Board of Health of the District of Columbia. The Board specifies all horses must arrive on show grounds with proof of a negative Coggins test within the past 12 months of the horse show and a Routine Health Certificate issued within 30 days prior to the event for horses crossing into the District. Both documents must be presented to the show secretary upon arrival, and an official from the District Board of Health is present to inspect all certificates. The point that Soule emphasized as his major concern was encouraging owners to be prepared for the unexpected. "If a horse does face an emergency situation you have to be prepared to transport it a fair distance to get to the closest veterinary clinics," he cautioned. That said, he also noted that the horse show has a Humane Equine Aid and Rapid Transport (HEART) Horse Ambulance on site to care for those emergencies and provide emergency transportation if needed. In case of an emergency, Soule noted that he and the HEART team will help guide the owner and provide the best options based on the situation.

The revised edition of Olympic Equestrian highlights and chronicles the most celebrated equestrian athletes in the sport where men and women compete on a level playing field.

Storm Watch What do you do to prepare for inclement weather, from thunderstorms to hurricanes or tornadoes? (Check all that apply) ✔ Make sure my fences are in good repair, eliminate nearby dead trees that may fall. ✔ Clear pastures of debris or other dangerous objects. ✔ Establish/review an evacuation plan for getting my horses out. ✔ Get my horse's ID, vaccination records, and Coggins paperwork organized and in a safe place. ✔ Gather at least 3 days' worth of feed/water/supplies to use in case of emergency. ✔ Other (please explain below) ✔ All of the above

"I always have a lot of information but it can take a little organizing to deal with an emergency," he added. Additionally, he cautioned that not every horse might be the right choice to take to the WIHS, especially if he or she doesn't handle stressful or different situations well. "Some individuals are better able to adapt than others, and some may not perform as well as they do when they are at a static horse show," Soule explained. "Not being able to warm up the same way they normally do may affect their performance more than their health. For a horse that is idiosyncratic, this might not be the show for those horses."

Nick Skelton wins $100,000 Grand Prix in Washington DC

European medallists Nick Skelton and Carlo score another big win in America

H&C NEWS DELIVERED TO YOU

LATEST NEWS

Nick Skelton remains on blistering form at the moment, picking up two major wins at the Washington International Horse Show in America last week - including the $100,000 President's Cup.

Unstoppable Carlo Partnering the talented 10-year-old grey gelding Carlo, owned by Beverley Widdowson, Nick was the only ride to jump double clear in the 1.60m President's Cup Grand Prix. Jumping one of only four clears in the first round, they were last to go in the jump-off and were the only combination to jump clear again, picking up just two time faults to take the win. "I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like those jump offs when there are no clears and you have to go last," Skelton said afterwards. "You can make a mistake. If they had all been clear, at least you can go in there and go faster, but when you are in that position you have to be careful. I prefer to have other clears, to have to go fast and attack. Also the time was very tight, so I got two time faults." For their victory, Nick and Carlo were presented with the President of the United States Perpetual Cup. Nick also won the Leading Jumper Rider and was presented with a Rolex watch.

Best of Britain Having been announced as the best International Combination of the Year at the British Showjumping Awards, it was a great week for Nick Skelton. The success comes at the end of a brilliant season for the Warwickshire rider, who he helped Britain to win two bronze medals at the FEI European Jumping Championships. Earlier in the week, Nick partnered the bay mare Unique XVIII to third place in the Top Score competition. The following day the pair were the only combination to clear seven foot (2.13m) in the puissance to take the title. Here Nick talking about his talented string of horses and his hopes for 2012 in our interview from HOYS.

WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL SHOWCASES THE BEST OF THE BEST All photos by Diana De Rosa The Washington International Horse Show features hunter, jumper and equitation competition with some fun events included in the mix. Of special note is Barn Night on Thursday night when Verizon Center lights up with all the colorful barn-themed face painting in an effort to win contests and get recognized.

O On Saturday Kids’ Day is front and center with free pony riders, fun family activities, face painting and more. It all happens from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in a tent outside Verizon Center.

For the past two years the Washington International Horse Show has been working with the Caisson Platoon, whose primary focus is the burying of fallen soldiers.

Pablo Barrios rides G&C Blanchee Z to win the $25,000 Puissance If you want to see riders and horses pushed to their limits, the $25,000 Puissance (high-jump) competition takes place during the week. In one of the most anticipated classes at the WIHS, riders compete to see who can jump the highest. The U.S. indoor record was set in Washington in 1983, when Anthony D’Ambrosio sailed over the 7-foot 71/2-inch wall. He completed the act aboard Sweet’N Low, a gray thoroughbred. Twenty-eight years later, their record remains intact. In the 2010 WIHS, Pablo Barrios and G&C Blanchee Z, owned by G&C Farm/Gustavo and Carolina Mirabal, cleared a height of 6’1” for the victory.

McLain Ward and Sapphire win $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix The $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix is a crowd favorite and features some of the top show jumpers in the world as well as many Olympic veterans. Olympic Gold Medalists Mclain Ward and Sapphire beat out the competition to win the 2010 WIHS Grand Prix, a feat Ward has achieved several times before.

Along with the WIHS souvenir booth, the concourse of Verizon Center will be the temporary home to more than 55 boutiques. Vendor Village includes everything from high quality custom boots, shoes and accessories to delicious sweets, fine and estate jewelry.

Lillie Keenan wins WIHS Equitation Finals One of the highlights of the week is the Junior Equitation. Riders under age 18 from across the country compete to win this coveted title. Only the top 35 are invited to compete in the final two rounds (hunter and jumper). Past winners have gone on to successful riding careers. The WIHS Equitation Finals features the best of the best. Last year, 13-year-old Lillie Keenan triumphed in the Junior Equita tion Finals making her one of the youngest riders to win the class.

Young riders help guide Washington International Horse Show By Laura Schroeder

Anna Rossi

NARG offers rider's grant

The Washingto.n International Horse Show makes use of a dynamic group of people to provide new ideas for the show; the kids. For the past three years, the WillS has formed a Junior Committee to provide fresh and unique ideas for the 53-year-old horse show, which this year takes place Oct. 25-30, at Verizon Center in the heart of Washington, D.C. This Junior Committee consists of a group of young horse enthusiasts who are eager to bring their vision to the wrnS. Every year through an application process, wrns chooses one young adult to head the Junior Committee as the Youth Ambassador. This year's ambassador is Shannon Miglarese, who has competed numerous times on local day at WillS. Hailing from Maryland, Miglarese is thrilled to be an integral part of this prestigious annual event which showcases some of the nation's finest riders in hunter, jumper and equitation competition. "The Junior Committee allows the youth to have a voice," said Miglarese. "A large part of the show is the youth competition. It's nice to have ldds and teenagers in the decision making process." Being the Youth Ambassador is no easy feat. It requires dedication and a passion for the WIHS. To be the ambassador, you must be a student between the ages of 14 and

18. These kids get the opportunity to attend business meetings and press conferences and to present ideas to the staff. Katie Lunceford, a member of the Junior Committee, has been attending WlliS for the past few years and thinks the Junior Committee is a great idea. Lunceford, a 15-year-old from Potomac, Md., has been riding since she was five years old and has attended the horse show many times in the past. '1t is great for the kids who have grown up coming to the show to now have a say in it," said Lunceford. "Also, it adds many new ideas and suggestions from the point of view of people who have experienced the show in different ways." One focus of the Junior Committee is Kids' Day. Jamal Brown, the 2009 Youth Ambassador, worked With WillS to develop Kids' Day, an event with free and fun activities for families. This year's Kids' Day will be taking place Saturday, October 29 in a tent located outside Verizon Center. Families can visit the tent for arts activities, face painting, a grooming station and pony rides, all free and open to the community. Brown, an IS-year-old equestrian from Silver Springs, Maryland, asserts that the main goal of the Junior Committee is to get the community involved in the show.

"There are a lot of people who live in the Washington, D.C. area and have no idea there is a horse show going on, we, as a committee, are working to change that," said Brown. This year the Junior Committee is working to increase ,awareness about wrns in their local communities. They have, as a group, decided to invite young riders with special needs to come and enjoy Kids' Day events and the show. This committee is very focused on corrimunity outreach and all 12 members have contributed ideas to how to execute that outreach. Anna Rossi, the 2010 Youth Ambassador, thinks the best part of the wrns is that it is right in her backyard in Washington D.C. Having competed at the wrns for the past seven years, Rossi is very passionate about her hometoWn horse show. '1 pass the Verizon center multiple times a week. but there is something really, really magical about the horses coming and the stabling on the streets," said Rossi. ''The transfomtation is amazing." The Washington International Horse Show Association. Ltd. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization.

WIHS Equitation Classic rmals

Venezuelan Pablo Barrios and G&C Blanchee Z celebrate victory in the Puissance

at the 20tO Washington International Horse Show. .

The Puissance One of the most anticipated classes of the week. is the Puissance, or high jump, ~ompetition. Riders and horses are pushed to their limits to see who can jump the highest. Starting at a comfortable height, riders compete over the ever-rising "great wall," which goes up in small increments. As the jump gets higher, riders are eliminated if they knock down a piece of the wall. The record for the outdoor high-jump is 8"' I \4" set in 1949. The indoor record was set at the Washington International in 1983, when Anthony d' Ambrosio on Sweet 'n Low cleared 7' 7 W'. In the 2010 WIHS, Venezuelan Pablo Barrios and G&C Blanchee Z, owned by G&C Farm/Gustavo and Carolina Mirabal, cleared a height of 6' 1" for victory.

One of the highlights of the week is the WIHS Equitation Classic Finals, featuring the best young and upcoming riders. Only the top 35 junior riders in the p.ation~ standings are invited to participate in this prestigious event. Taking place on Friday Oct. 28 and Saturday Oct. 29, this event features both a hunter and jumper round with the top 10 then facing a work-off to determine the champion. Last year 13-year-old Lillie Keenan triumphed in the wrns Equitation Finals making her one of the youngest riders to win the class. Although riders may be focused on winning the finals, they do have time for fun afterwards. Keenan spends her evenings after showing going out to eat with her family and mends.

Here’s a photo of She-who-rides-horses with The Trainer, waiting on a downtown street corner. Are they waiting for a bus? No, they’re at the show grounds waiting for our horse. One of the ‘Big’ indoors is the Washington International Horse Show. Downtown DC, in the Verizon Center. Where the Washington Capitals play hockey. Just up the street from the Capital. Now, even I am not nutty enough to drive the horse trailer through downtown DC traffic..but just in case anyone is, they don’t let you. We have to ship to a horse park outside town, and wait for the big horse bus to load the horse for the trip downtown. Then we jump in the car and try to beat them there. So here we are, hanging out at a downtown intersection, waiting for a big silver truck, to drop of our horse.

Where’s my horse?#comment-1815 The the fun begins…they wait until your horse arrives, then tell you where the stabling is…and run dash with horse, trunk and more buckets than most of the downtown set own, to get settled in. All the while, people in suits are staring at the road apples with disdain, and tourists are snapping photos. It’s a zoo (with only one type of animal). The warm up area is where they normally park the zamboni. There’s a schooling in the ring…at 4:30am. Every vendor known to man is set up in the mezzanine, hawking their wares. Then there’s the fudge. Oh, I’m not usually a big fudge person. I have memories of childhood attempts to make fudge at home. And who hasn’t bought the obligatory bake sale fudge at the school or church. But this is as related to those lessor fudges as a Ferrari is to a Fiat. Oh sure, it costs a days wages for a single slice…but what price perfection. I’m no theologian, but when I die, if I’m not slapping on the SPF 1,000,000 sun screen, St Peter will greet me with a slice of this fudge. And I’ll need the fudge to get me through this night. Once She-who-rides-horses is done showing, we’ll pack everything up (in the dark) and catch the horse bus back to the other horse park, hitch up my trailer an ship home to the barn. We should get to sleep again by next week. Posted in Uncategorized

Meehan also served as the director of communications for the United States Equestrian Federation, the national governing body for horse sports, and is an active rider and competitor. She received her M.B.A. from Fordham University and her B.A. from Kenyon College. Originally from the Buffalo, N.Y. area, she currently resides in Washington, D.C. with her husband and daughter.

"On behalf of the entire Washington International Horse Show community, I am extremely pleased to welcome Bridget Love Meehan as our new Executive Director. Bridget brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the areas of marketing and sponsorship and she has a strong background and understanding of the requirements needed to produce a world class event.

We look forward to her contributions toward the future success of the show," said Reid.

He ultimately dec ided to add judging to his list of credentials, an d in 1992 , became an 'R' rated USEF j udge in hunters, jumpers and equ itation. His knowledge and reputati on for fairness have offered him the oppOit unity to judge some of the country's largest and 111 0 st prestigious horse shows . On a reg ular basis you will find C hris around the co un try at shows in Ocala , Wellington, Toronto , Atlanta and other states. Whd e horses are the d rivi ng force in his life, Chris is also an avid fitness guru who goes to the gym on a regular basis, as well as a sports enthusiast, who enj oys the fact that when rooting fo r the Dallas Cowboys he ca n do it as a fan without the pressure of the show ri ng where you are rootin g for a horse or child . " It's something I can do just for fun ," he explained . This year Chris was in vited to add j udg ing the Washi ngton Intern at ional Horse Show to his list of credentials, something he is very much looking fo rward to . We chatted with Chris about his past and present life with horses and his thoughts about the Washington International.

From Wh en I was 24 T began working and runnin g Breckenridge Manor. I graduated from James Madison Uni versity and

Concept...

worked for a year at Southern Seminary Jr. College as the assistant ridin g director. Then in 1989 I took over Breckenridge Manor. I mo ved the farm to differen t locations but finally rebuilt it in Virginia Beach, where it continues to operate today. Q:

What is the first time yo u remember being on a

horse?

Point To Point Builders is an Equestrian Design/ Build Firm dedicated to prov iding professional se rvice, with close atte ntio n to the smalles t detail. Courteous and prompt attention by knowledgeable fellow hor::;emen, res ults in a worry free ex pe rience done right the first time. Eve ry C lient has different needs, so each barn we build is clistom

and unique. Call Dave Tubach to discliss your upcoming pla ns and draw upon our wealth o f information.

CW: I don 't totally remember but th e pictures show me riding lead line when I was very young in a Western saddle. Q: What is it about horses that gave you the horse bug?

CW: When you reward a horse for performin g well , then th ey want to perform well ! Horses want to please you, and if you work WITH them they teach you many life lessons. For example: you realize how clUeial patience is in the equation, because when you are patient the end result is achievement. Q: Did you ever compete at WIHS and if so what was it

like? CW: I sure did. The first time I competed was when I was ten years old . I was riding a small pony. Then as a junior I competed for four yea rs on Bandit , a IS.2 H, bay Thoroughbred gelding. Over the past I S years I' ve also shown various customers' horses in the professional divisions. J.

• Remodel an existing barn • New "Turnkey" Stables • Private to Commercial facilities • All Weather Riding rings • Steel Clearspan Indoor Arenas • Post Frame to Masonry Construction

Q: What has been your greatest riding achievement overa ll ?

CW: I reall y believe that bringing a young horse along to be successful at whatever level it can achieve is a great accomplishment, whether it's a local horse or a winner at Indoors. To me that has always been my goal and my greates t achievement . Q: What was your greatest W1HS achievement?

CW: My greatest ridin g achievement was to win a class as a professional at WLHS on a horse we had brought up from the baby green division. Madison , a I7H , bay Warmbloodcross gelding. owned by Joanna Nelson , won a Second Year Green over fences class and tied for the Reserve Championship . As a trainer, I am always proud of my students for qualifying for WIHS; it takes a great deal of ded ication, hard work, and talent , just to get "the leiter." (WillS sends out a letter letting people know they have qualified. The riders

wai l in anticipation of tbat " letter.") My highes t achievement as a trainer came in 2009 when onc of my junior ride rs, Taylor Shearin , won a blue ribbon ove r fences in the Older Large Junior di visio n. Taylor's mare, Rejoice, was green when the Shearin 's purchased her, and so 1 was proud of how far both the student and the horse had progressed in just a few short years.

Q: In the scheme of things, what does it mean to yo u to judge at WIHS? CW: To judge WlHS is the greatest honor of my judg ing career. It has always been a special horse show, one where I was thrilled to compete and whe re now I excitedly look forward to viewing from the judge's perspective.

Q: Now you will be judging the hunters at W IHS. What's it like to be on the "othe r side!!? CW: Thi s will be my first 0PP0l1unity to judge the Washington International Horse Show. There is press ure on both sides. Judging is really just the opportunity to reward really great horses; whereas, showing is the opportu nity to showcase the horse's ability to its utmost. It wi ll be very exciting to watch my peers, their students, and aUf nation 's greatest horses compete and to give my opinion on the way they go over those couple of days.

Horses in the City! Some horse shows e njoy acres of grassy fields, spacious stabling , and trails for a leisurely after-class hack, but not the Washington International Horse Show. Squeezed into a city block between Chinatown , the Capitol Building and th e White House, WlHS is an urban horse show with horses housed in tents on the sidewalk, 11 postagestamp size warm-up area and schooling at 3:00 A.M . But so mehow it a11 works. The WIHS offers some of the finest equestrian competition in one of the most exci ting venues in the coun try. Since 1958 , WIHS has bee n th e setting for top horses and riders, including Olympic champions to meet for world-class competition and more than $400,000 in

Chester Weber Once Again Shows Off World Class Combined Driving During Demonstration At The Washington International Horse Show November 10, 2011

WASHINGTON, (Washington International Horse Show) – Combined Driver Chester Weber has thrilled audiences with driving demonstrations at the Washington International Horse Show for the past two years, and the eight-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Champion didn’t disappoint the thousands of spectators on hand for the prestigious show this year. Weber and his team of horses gave the Washington International Horse Show crowd a world-class demonstration that introduced them to each phase of the challenging sport of combined driving. Weber is known for being a highly competitive driver who sets goals and accomplishes them, and he brought that winning attitude to Washington. “I always enjoy giving a demonstration at Washington International. Just like in previous years, the crowd this year was enthusiastic and really seemed to enjoy seeing Team Weber in action,” Weber said. “During the demonstration I introduced the Washington audience to the sport of combined driving through demonstrating the three days of competition while describing to the audience what I was doing.” Considered one of the biggest promoters of combined driving, Weber explained and demonstrated the dressage, marathon and cones phases during the demonstration. “Combined driving is my passion and I love to share it with others,” Weber said. “I especially love it when I get to introduce new people to the sport.” Weber, who helped the U.S. Combined Driving team clinch the Silver Medal at the 2010 World Equestrian Games, spent the summer of 2011 on a successful European tour.

the addition of two new horses to his superstar team, Splash and Uniek owned by Jane Clark, Weber proved to be an unstoppable force in Europe putting in a brilliant performance at the CHIO Aachen and winning at CAIO Vecses, CAI Altenfelden, and CAI Riesenbeck. As America’s most highly decorated combined driver, Weber recently donated a sterling silver trophy to the winner of the USEF National Championship Combined Driving Single Horse. Entitled the “Jamaica Perpetual Trophy,” the trophy honors Weber’s legendary equine partner Jamaica who was named the 2008 USEF Horse of the Year. “I am excited about the Jamaica Perpetual Trophy because it is another way to recognize and support the sport of combined driving,” Weber said.

Washington Intl Horse Show Signs Deal Nikki-HorseCityAdmin

Posted Yesterday, 09:06 AM

WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL HORSE SHOW SIGNS THREE-YEAR DEAL WITH VERIZON CENTER Washington, D.C. -- The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), the leading indoor championship horse show in the country, is pleased to announce a three-year deal with Verizon Center to extend its run at the Washington, D.C. venue through 2013. Verizon Center has been home to WIHS since 2000. The 53rd annual Washington International Horse Show will take place October 25-30. “We are thrilled to remain at Verizon Center and continue this great Washington tradition. Verizon Center has been home to WIHS for 12 years, and while there are complexities in producing an urban horse show with shipping horses in and out of the city and closing city streets to create stables, it also makes us one of the most exciting horse shows in the country,” said Anthony F. Hitchcock, chief operating officer of WIHS. “The Washington International Horse show has been a prominent, annual event for the arena,” said David Touhey, senior vice president and general manager of Verizon Center. “We’re excited to be able to extend our relationship for another three years and continue to provide the community with another fun and entertaining family show that features world-class equestrian competition.” Verizon Center is located in the popular Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, D.C., close to museums and restaurants and within walking distance of the National Mall. Averaging 220 events per year, the arena is home to three professional sports teams and one college team including the Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals, Washington Mystics and the Georgetown Hoyas. The arena also hosts a variety of concerts, family shows and worldclass sporting events. “We have unique standing in the equestrian world, being the last great urban indoor horse show in the nation, and it is our goal to continue to ensure Washington is a ‘must-attend’ event for the equestrian world and the Washington, D.C. community,” said Juliet W. Reid, president of WIHS. WIHS highlights include the WIHS Equitation Championship Finals for the top junior riders in the country, Kids’ Day with free pony riders and activities for children, Barn Night, the Puissance high jump, and the $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix, where top horses and riders, including Olympic medalists, compete for the President of the United States Perpetual Cup, donated to the show in 1961 by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. ###

Washington International HorseShow RETURNS TO VERIZON CENTER OCTOBER 25-30

T

he 53rd Annual Washington International Horse Show will be held on October 25-30, 2011 at the Verizon Center in the heart of Washington, DC. The tempo will pick up right from the start with the show jumpers as they display speed and agility to negotiate technical jumper courses. On Wednesday, October 26, Children's, Adult, and Open Jumpers classes will be showcased. Thursday, October 27 will feature the Gambler's Choice Costume class and on Friday, October 28, Amateur-Owner, Junior, and Open Jumper classes will highlight the show. In 2010, the Gambler's Choice was won by Brazilian Rodrigo Pessoa and Palouchin de Ligny. Pessoa was dressed in an authentic Formula One uniform. He also earned the Leading Open and International Jumper Rider titles. The signature show jumping division of this highly anticipated event is the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix. Last year's winner was Olympic Gold Medalist Mclain Ward of Brewster, N .Y, aboard Sapphire. Winning

HORSEMEN'S YANKEE PEDLAR

this prestigious Grand Prix is a feat Ward has achieved several times before. With $100,000 in prize money the lineup is spectacular, the course will be challenging, and the competition will be fierce. "Strength" in French is puissance, and few classes are more exciting than Washington's high jump Puissance, which will take place in the evening on 'Friday, October 28. It was in 1983 that Anthony d'Ambrosio of Red Hook, N.Y., aboard Sweet 'n' Low, a 17.1 hand Thoroughbred gelding, set the indoor record of 7' 7 \/2" that no one has yet to beat, although many have tried. For Anthony, it was almost an art form to jump the big wall and it was a combination of his experience and Sweet 'n' Low's incredible talent that glided them over the wall that year. In the 2010 WIHS, Venezuelan Pablo Barrios and G&C Blanchee Z, owned by G&C Farm/Gustavo and Carolina Mirabal, cleared a height of 6' 1" for the victory. The hunters are an orchestra of perfect timing and the equitation riders follow an ever-changing melody. An ensemble of hunter classes will take place throughout the week. The 20 10 Leading Amateur-Owner Rider was Stacy Arani of Dover, Mass., and Grand Champion AmateurOwner Hunter was Bolero, ridden by Arani. The Grand Champion Hunter was Francesca with Madeline Thatcher of South Jordan, Utah, in the irons. Kelley Farmer of Keswick, Va., was the Leading Hunter Rider. TheWIHSEquitation Finals rake place on Saturday evening arid last year, . 13-year-old Lillie Keenan of New York, N.Y., triumphed in the Junior Equitation Finals making her one of the youngest riders to Recommended win the class. by Top Breeders and Veterinarians

2011 Washington International Horse Show Wrap-up: October 25-30, 2011| Horses in the South – A Horse Blog win for 18-year-old Chase Boggio, of Canton, GA. Boggio rode Massimo, his ten-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cassini, through the first two phases of competition, finishing with a score of 85.33 in the hunter phase and an 89 point total in the jumper phase. Returning for the final work-off sitting in second place overall, Boggio’s ride aboard Elizabeth Benson’s mount Calito 7 scored an 87.83, giving him a three round total of 262.166 for the win. Boggio earned the victory over Hayley Barnhill, of Collierville, TN, who totaled 259.999 with scores of 87, 86.67, and 86.33. Barnhill rode Elizabeth MacWilliam’s Camora in the hunter/jumper rounds and then piloted Boggio’s mount Massimo in the final work-off. Third place went to Elizabeth Benson, of Whitehouse Station, NJ, with a three round total of 258.499. Benson rode Horizon Hill Farm LLC’s Calito 7 to scores of 87 and 90.33 in the first two rounds.

Ralph Ours, III and was awarded a pair of custom chaps provided by Journeymen Saddlers, Ltd.

He finished seventh in 2008, second in 2009, and eighth in 2010. Massimo was awarded The Lugano Memorial Trophy donated by Stoney Hill as the winning horse of the night. In last year’s competition, Massimo helped put rider Lillie Keenan in the winner’s circle after she rode the big gray in the final work-off. This year he carried both the first and second place finishers through excellent rounds. Trainer Christina Schlusemeyer found the talented gelding in Europe two years ago and knew that he would be the perfect horse to guide Boggio to a national championship. “I purchased Massimo in November of 2009, and he has been amazing for me,” Boggio explained. “When I tried him in Europe he was very green and could not canter in a straight line. I told Christina he could never do the equitation, but she said ‘He’ll do it, just watch’. He has just been so easy; he never does anything bad. Massimo truly is the deluxe equitation horse.” Commenting on his victory, Boggio smiled, “It means a lot to win here. I’ve been second in pretty much every big class that there is in the United States, so it feels good to finally win one.” Later in the afternoon, the young riders competed in the WIHS Pony Equitation Classic Finals with a win for 13-year-old Ali Tritschler riding Rose Hill Farm’s Hallelujah. Tritschler earned the high score of 85 over fences and came out on top after a final work-off.

Verizon Center has been home to WIHS for 12 years, and while there are complexities in producing an urban horse show with shipping horses in and out of the city and closing city streets to create stables, it also makes us one of the most exciting horse shows in the country,” said Anthony F. Hitchcock, chief operating officer of WIHS.

“The Washington International Horse show has been a prominent, annual event for the arena,” said David Touhey, senior vice president and general manager of Verizon Center. “We’re excited to be able to extend our relationship for another

Washington, D.C. - Nick Skelton captured another big win at the 53rd Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), this time taking home the largest purse with Beverley Widdowson's Carlo 273 in the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix CSI 3*-W presented by Events DC. Along with prize money, Skelton was awarded a Rolex watch from Tiny Jewel Box as the Leading Jumper Rider sponsored by Elm Rock LLC. Brianne Goutal and Nice de Prissey placed second, while Lucy Davis and Nemo 119 were third. Earlier in the day, Chase Boggio took the win in the WIHS Equitation Classic Finals, while Victoria Colvin rode Waminka to the win in the $10,000 SJHOF Ambassador's Cup High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic and Michael Hughes with Red Hot won the $5,000 Senator's Cup Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic.

Tonight's class was the highlight of the week at the WIHS, which finishes tomorrow with competition for the pony hunters, the WIHS Pony Equitation Finals, and the WIHS Regional Finals.

Nick Skelton and Carlo 273 Capture Victory in $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix

Skelton and Carlo 273, a 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Contender, were the last to go clear in the opening round of 24 entries over a course designed by Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC. First up in the jump-off was Davis on Nemo 119, a 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cambridge owned by Old Oak Farm. They had two rails to finish with eight faults in 39.74 seconds for third place. "I only brought one horse, so the days leading up to today were all in preparation for this class," Davis said. "Being from California I have not shown indoors much and I haven’t really done any big indoor grand prix, so it was just Recommended Reading

kind of going in for experience and trying to do as well as I could." Davis purchased Nemo 119 from Nick Skelton two years ago, and they had a stellar winter season, winning four grand prix events. She said of her horse, "He is very fun and very talented. A little quirky, but he has really taught me a lot, so I am really thankful for that." Brianne Goutal and Nice de Prissey, a 10-year-old Selle Francais stallion by Rosire owned by Remarkable Farms LP, had an unfortunate rail for four faults in

but I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and try one more time. The plan was really just to finish and to finish as well as I could. My horse has been amazing all week and he was amazing tonight. I thought the course was really fair. Michel has been building great all week. My plan was literally just to cross both timers."

Last to go, Skelton knew that he had to produce a clear jumping round for the win. He took some extra time, but it was enough for victory. He and Carlo 273 stopped the timers in 46.32 seconds with two time faults. "Actually I don't like those jump offs when there are no clears and you have to go last," Skelton admitted. "You can make a mistake. If they had all been clear, at least you can go in there and go faster, but when you are in that position you have to be careful. I prefer to have other clears, to have to go fast and attack. Also the time was very tight, so I got two time faults. It was a good class.

careful. He has all the jump and he has a great mind. He really wants to do it, so that makes my life easier." Skelton said that Carlo has not shown indoors for a couple of years, but didn't have a problem coming to the WIHS. They have had a great year, Skelton said, "from Wellington to the European Championships." They will continue on the indoor circuit at the Alltech National Horse Show and the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. For their victory, Skelton and Carlo 273 were presented with the President of the United States Perpetual Cup. As Leading Jumper Rider, Skelton also won the Margaret Chovnick Memorial Trophy. Skelton was named the Leading International Rider as well. All three riders said they look forward to competing at the WIHS every year. Davis mentioned, "I have come for the past five years, and did the ponies and eq finals and juniors. It is really special for me because I have a lot of family in the city so they can come and watch. I also think that this year has been great as far as crowds. It was definitely much improved and I will definitely come back next year." Skelton has been competing at the WIHS since the 80s, and noted, "We have a nice time when we're here." Goutal, who started showing at the WIHS in 1995 on ponies, explained, "It has always kind of been one of the peak stops in my year. It has always been a very important finals for us. It is a very patriotic event, and it is prestigious. I think they did an amazing job this year running the show. It has had a revamping in the past two years and it is really nice to see a big crowd come and support the show. They have been working really hard at getting the numbers up and they have really done it this year. It is just a great show to come to. I look forward to it every year." The 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Finals concluded this evening with a significant win for 18-year-old Chase Boggio, of Canton, GA. Boggio rode Massimo, his tenyear-old Holsteiner gelding by Cassini, through the first two phases of competition, finishing with a score of 85.33 in the hunter phase and an 89 point total in the jumper phase. Returning for the final work-off sitting in second place overall, Boggio’s ride aboard Elizabeth Benson's mount Calito 7 scored an 87.83, giving him a three round total of 262.166 for the win. Boggio earned the victory over Hayley Barnhill, of Collierville, TN, who totaled 259.999 with scores of 87, 86.67, and 86.33. Barnhill rode Elizabeth MacWilliam’s Camora in the hunter/jumper rounds and then piloted Boggio's mount Massimo in the final work-off. Third place went to Elizabeth Benson, of Whitehouse Station, NJ, with a three round total of 258.499. Benson rode Horizon Hill Farm LLC's Calito 7 to scores of 87 and 90.33 in the first two rounds. Her ride in the final work-off aboard Sarah Milliren’s mount Vancouver, owned by Elvenstar Farm, scored an 81.17. Boggio was presented The WIHS Equitation Classic Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. G.

Journeymen Saddlers, Ltd. Tonight's victory was particularly exciting for the rider given that he had previously been in the top ten for this class three times before finally putting his name on the elite list of winners. He finished seventh in 2008, second in 2009, and eighth in 2010. Massimo was awarded The Lugano Memorial Trophy donated by Stoney Hill as the winning horse of the night. In last year’s competition, Massimo helped put rider Lillie Keenan in the winner’s circle after she rode the big gray in the final work-off. This year he carried both the first and second place finishers through excellent rounds. Trainer Christina Schlusemeyer found the talented gelding in Europe two years ago and knew that he would be the perfect horse to guide Boggio to a national championship. "I purchased Massimo in November of 2009, and he has been amazing for me," Boggio explained. "When I tried him in Europe he was very green and could not canter in a straight line. I told Christina he could never do the equitation, but she said 'He'll do it, just watch.' He has just been so easy; he never does anything bad. Massimo truly is the deluxe equitation horse." Commenting on his victory, Boggio smiled, "It means a lot to win here. I've been second in pretty much every big class that there is in the United States, so it feels good to finally win one.”" "I got very lucky," he added. "I honestly think that it was fate because I got switched on to Calito, who I leased last year. He's an amazing horse and it only took me three jumps to get to know him again. I was really happy with him, and Massimo of course." Schlusemeyer proudly commented on Boggio's success, declaring, "This is our happiest day to date. Chase is such a hard worker. He takes it seriously, and he should be a good example to all other equitation riders - if you want it, you can get it." Second place finisher Hayley Barnhill spoke about her ride on Massimo, noting, "I was really happy with Chase's horse. He's a big strided horse and I thought he was great." One of Barnhill's trainers, Missy Clark, explained that her rider had an unexpected horse change right before this week's competition. Barnhill got her top finish riding not just one, but two unknown horses - a true testament to her skill and composure in the show ring. "Hayley has never shown Camora, so she had two that she had never ridden before, but she was amazing," Clark stated. "She rode like a true double national champion; she really rose to the occasion. We were graciously loaned Camora at the last minute, and you don't see that generosity very often." Judge Steve Wall remarked on the ability of the top two riders, acknowledging, "These two have always been near the top and today was their day; the cream rises to the top. There are riding styles in the two of them that are more polished and more finished."

with the win on Waminka, owned by Rivers Edge. They were the only double clear in a jump-off of four entries. Olinda and Genevieve Zock were second, while Liza Finsness on Ormsby Hill was third. Colvin was presented with yet another trophy in a week of incredible success for the 14-year-old rider from Loxahatchee, FL. For the classic, she won the Ambassador's Cup Perpetual Trophy donated by Ambassador and Mrs. Marion H. Smoak. Colvin won the Grand Junior Hunter championship yesterday and was named Best Child Rider on a Horse. She said of her wins, "I'm excited. I think the best thing was Best Junior Rider. It meant a lot to me." In the jump-off, Colvin wanted to attempt a tricky inside turn and knew her plan. "I think I had a good plan," she agreed. "I watched the last class, so I got to see a lot do the jump-off. I was just going to try and do what they did. I did the inside turn. She hit it and it was almost on the ground. I thought if I was slow to the one jump, I thought she could make that turn." Colvin started showing Waminka, an eight-year-old KWPN mare by Fedor, in the High Junior Jumpers this winter. She remarked, "She's fun. She jumps so high! It's cool to have won here (again)." The High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper champion was Banana d'Ive Z, ridden by Meagan Nusz. They were awarded the Greenberg Challenge Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. Hermen Greenberg. Waminka and Colvin were reserve champions. The Shalanno Style of Riding Award was given to Samantha Schaefer. In the $5,000 Senator's Cup Low Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic sponsored by North Star, Michael Hughes of Allendale, NJ rode Drumnacross Farm Ltd.'s Red Hot to victory. They finished the jump-off double clear in 33.237 seconds for the win over Gabrielle Stern on Anjelica, who stopped the timers in 33.903 seconds for second place. Third place went to Sugar Ray and Samantha Schaefer, who had a clear round in 34.455 seconds. For their win, Hughes and Red Hot were presented with the Swan Lake Perpetual Trophy donated by Beagle Brook Farm in honor of the 1992 winner Swan Lake, ridden by Jennifer F. Miller. The Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Champion sponsored by North Star was Red Hot, ridden by Michael Hughes. Samantha Schaefer and Sugar Ray were the reserve champions. They won the Foxbrook Perpetual Trophy in honor of Space Citation donated by Joy Slater. Hughes has been riding Red Hot, a 13-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding by Indoctro, for two years. "He's very red hot," Hughes laughed. "He's so much fun to ride and he's such a great teacher in the jump-offs because he's so fast." Hughes said of the class, "The course was very difficult; I didn't think there was going to be as many clear as there was, but there were so many good horses and riders in the class. I kept the same pace the whole way around. I never really slowed down. He is very careful, you just have to watch the last couple of jumps."

Saturday, May 29, 2010 Finding your Perfect Trail Horse Advice for finding your perfect trail match. By Jennifer Nice http://www.horsechannel.com/horse-exclusives/findingperfect-trail-horse.aspx

When people search for a new horse, the first thing they often do is make a list of attributes they want in the horse, such as size, color and markings. They then try to find a horse that closely matches the list.

Join HorseVA on Facebook

When searching for a trail horse, my advice is to forget the list of those attributes. You shouldn’t care what color he is, how big he is (unless he’s way too big), how small he is (unless he’s puny), or if the horse is a mare or gelding. You shouldn’t care too much if his legs aren’t perfectly straight, if his neck doesn’t come out of his withers just so or his head looks like a briefcase. If you get too hung up on what he looks like, it will cloud your judgment when it comes to evaluating his abilities. Therefore, forget his physical attributes and go straight to checking his credentials. Can he do the job? The only way to truly determine if a particular horse is the one for you is to spend some time on the trail with him. The seller should let you take him on a few trial trail rides. If the seller won’t, then pass on the horse. Take the horse out as many times as you can and expose him to as many different situations as you can before finalizing a sale. Here are the skills a good trail horse should possess: He must be patient. A horse that is is in a hurry, is antsy or won’t stand still is annoying.

He must be willing to lead, follow or go his own way, when necessary. He must be willing to drink whatever water is available to him. He must like to travel, enjoy going to new places and seeing new country.  He must be social and get along with other horses. A trail ride is no place for a horse that kicks, bites or generally dislikes other horses.  He must willingly go over, under or around whatever is before him. He must never jump what he is able to  step over. He must be willing to jump what he cannot step over. He must accept encounters with things he has never seen before as a routine part of his job. He must have a very low flight response. Some horses will spin and bolt at the slightest

Now you’ve gone and grown up and made a life for yourself.  A lot has happened in your life since that day so many years ago.  You moved or you got a job or you went to college or you raised a family or a hundred other things.  But I know you remember me because I remember you.

My ancestors carried your ancestors from the big port cities in the East across mountains and plains and grasslands and deserts to places where they all ultimately settled down. Your ancestors farmed the land and my ancestors pulled their plows and their wagons to market.  As a team, your ancestors and mine built big cities.  And together, they delivered all the goods and services to the people who made those cities their homes.

HorseVA: May 2010

Washington, DC – May 12, 2010 – Let the horses inspire you! The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), the leading indoor equestrian event in the U.S., is seeking original poster designs for its 52nd annual event, to be held Oct. 26-31, 2010, at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The six-day equine extravaganza features the country’s leading horses and riders in exciting jumping competition. The poster contest is open to U.S.-based artists, both amateur and professional, 18 years or older. A maximum of three entries per artist will be accepted. There is no entry fee. Artists submit photos (prints or digital files) of their work (not slides, not original art). The work submitted must be original and may be in any medium suitable for duplicating on posters and souvenir merchandise. The deadline for entries is 4:00 P.M., Monday, May 31, 2010. Entries should be inspired by the WIHS and reflect an equestrian or horse theme. Artists also should consider the event’s longstanding ties to Washington, D.C.

There were 24 entries in today’s $31,000 International Open Jumper jump-off class. Seven found the way to a clear round and advanced to the jump-off. Sarah Tredennick and Vigaro, owned by Mr. and Mrs. John Tredennick, were the fastest double clear for victory in 35.36 seconds. Nick Skelton (GBR) rode Beverley Widdowson’s Carlo 273 to second place in 35.62 seconds, while Margie Engle (USA) and Indigo were third in 37.25 seconds. Tredennick and Vigaro, a 10-year-old KWPN gelding by No Limit, have been showing together for three years. Tredennick has brought Vigaro through the ranks and last year they “broke the 1.60m barrier.” Tredennick said, “He’s wonderful and getting better and better. He’s young still. We came back down to the 1.30m all winter and then jumped back into the open division at Harrisburg and hoped for the best. He’s just rising to the occasion and doing so well.” Twenty-one-year-old Tredennick hasn’t competed at the WIHS for four years; she showed pony and junior hunters at the WIHS as a junior. After graduating the University of Denver this spring, the amateur rider has plans to turn pro at the end of the year. This is her first year showing in the jumpers at Washington, and she said of her ride, “The course was nice. I was taken aback a little bit by how different it is to ride in that ring because you have to bounce off the corners and really stick to one decision. It worked out well for me. I wanted to go double clear. I knew I was going to go for it. You might as well when you get to that point, but I had no anticipation of winning. But this was unexpected, pleasantly.” For her win today, Tredennick was presented with the Ben O’Meara Memorial Challenge Trophy.

The $20,000 Gambler’s Choice Costume class is always a crowd favorite at the WIHS. Garnering the most points in the class was Todd Minikus of Loxahatchee, FL, riding Sweetheart, owned by Windsor Show Stables, who had a total of 1190 points. “Avatar” Saer Coulter finished second with Copernicus Stables’ Julia Des Brumes with 1160 points, while “Skeleton” Nick Skelton and Unique, owned by Beverley Widdowson, were third with 1110 points. Minikus was presented with the Crown Royal Trophy donated by Crown Royal, while Sweetheart, a 12-year-old Royal Dutch Warmblood gelding by Heartbreaker, won the Sue Ann Geisler Memorial Trophy donated by the Washington International Horse Show.

When asked about his costume, Minikus said, “Caroline, Sweetheart’s ‘nanny’ picked my costume. She was saying that Uncle Sam had to win in the Capital.”

>> CONSTRUCTION OF STABLES

He said of the gambler’s choice format, “It’s fun for the crowd and people that don’t get to come to a lot of horse shows. That’s what is nice about indoors and some of the shows here is that people get to be a little bit closer to

the action and it is not the same old cookie cutter horse show. There is stuff that people can participate in and Barn Night here at Washington and the costume class all kind of fit together nicely.” In the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers sponsored by North Star, KC van Aarem of Woodbine, MD, and Mastermind took the top prize. They were the fastest double clear in a jump-off of eight entries in a class of 22. They crossed the timers in 29.318 seconds after a fast rollback to the final oxer. Michael Hughes and Drumnacross Farm Ltd’s Red Hot were second in 29.959 seconds. Samantha Schaefer and Sugar Ray were third in 30.347 seconds. Van Aarem was presented with the Beagle Brook Farm Perpetual Trophy donated by Beagle Brook Farm. Van Aarem (16) currently lives in Florida and trains with Aaron Vale and Dale Mills. She has ridden Mastermind, a nine-year-old Canadian Sport Horse gelding, for three years. Mastermind was a hunter before Van Aarem purchased him with thoughts of turning him into an equitation horse. “He’s the best horse ever. We started out in Low Children’s Jumpers and I fell off every day!” Van Aarem laughed. “He really knows when it’s time to go in there and win. My job is just to stay on! He’s sharp at the jumps. All you have to do is get him to it and he knows his job.” Coming into the jump-off, Van Aarem wasn’t sure if her time would be fast enough. “I honestly thought I was going really slow. We stumbled, and I thought, ‘Oh no, I’ve got to make up the time.’ To the last jump, I was really booking it,” she said. She continued, “We qualified for the Low (division), but I just started doing the Highs over the summer. We won a classic at Roanoke. I was so nervous, especially since everyone out there was so good. It was great competition. This means a ton (to win here).” The High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers showed in a $5,000 class tonight, sponsored by AAA Equestrians, LLC. With 21 entries to start, only three were able to clear the course without fault. Megan Nusz and TNT Equine Partners’ Banana D’Ive Z completed the only clear jump-off round in a time of 31.942 seconds to earn top honors. Charlotte Jacobs finished with four faults in 29.127 seconds aboard Candy Tribble and Windsor Show Stables’ Promised Land to place second. Genevieve Zock and Olinda had two rails in the jump-off to finish with eight faults in 31.812 seconds in third. Following their winning round, Megan Nusz and Banana D’Ive Z were presented with The “Footloose” Perpetual Trophy donated by The Curtin Family in honor of the 1990 winner Footloose, ridden by Caroline Curtin, and in remembrance of Ruth Ellen Wilmot. Nusz is a 24-year-old rider from The Woodlands, TX, and trains with grand prix show jumper Kent Farrington. Farrington is currently in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he helped USA earn team gold at the 2011 Pan American Games today. With the help of her barn manager, Nusz was proud to earn a victory this evening with Farrington’s teachings in mind.

News Horseweb.de» INTERNATIONAL NEWS » Treddenick Gallops to Win in $31,000 International Open Jumper Victory at 53rd Washington International Horse Show Last to go in the jump-off, all Nusz and “Banana” had to do was go clear when the other two riders had faults. Banana D’Ive Z is a ten-year-old Zangersheide mare by Rodrigo Pessoa’s famous mount Baloubet Du Rouet. Nusz saw the mare competing in Europe last year and “fell in love.” “We have been an amazing team,” the rider smiled. “She is my ideal type. A lot of people don’t like the hot, go at the jump kind of mount, but I love her. She is super straight forward, she is quick, she knows her job and she is careful. Every time I go in the ring all I have to worry about is doing my job and she takes care of the rest.” This is Nusz’s first time competing at the WIHS and she is excited for the bigger classes this weekend. “This show is definitely like nothing I have ever seen before,” she declared. “The schooling ring is a little challenging, but my horse jumped super in the ring, so I couldn’t be happier. This is one of the best horse shows in the country and it is an honor to be here. Just to qualify to come here with all of these amateurs and juniors is a big deal to me.” Commenting on her future plans, Nusz stated, “I just go day by day. I like being on top; I like winning. I have a lot more horses at home that hopefully will come next year. I just started riding with Kent the same time I got Banana, so we are just trying to build the team.” The Washington International Horse Show continues tomorrow with the championships for the junior hunter divisions as well as the hunter phase for the WIHS Equitation Classic Finals. The low and high junior/amateurowner jumpers will have speed classes in the afternoon session, while the International Open Jumpers have a $10,000 1.40m faults converted class. The evening session begins with a $31,000 International Open Jumper 1.50m faults converted class, followed by terrier races and a driving exhibition by World Equestrian Games silver medalist Chester Weber. The night closes with the electrifying $25,000 Puissance sponsored by The Boeing Company. For full results, more information, or to watch a free live feed of the show, please visit www.wihs.org.

Visitors will discover daring feats of bravery such as “counting coup,” in which a warrior would gallop astride an enemy and touch him with his hand. They will learn that raiding an enemy’s horses is a proud tradition that survived even into 20th-century warfare—during World War II, Joseph Medicine Crow, Apsáalooke (Crow), now in his 90s, liberated horses from the Nazi SS in the finest tradition of a Plains Indian warrior. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, from President Barack Obama Aug. 12, 2009.

National Sporting Library to Unveil Museum and Inaugural Exhibit

The National Sporting Library, originally founded in 1954 “to preserve and to share the art, literature and culture of horse and field sports” will soon be rededicated as the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM). A state-of-the-art renovation and expansion of Vine Hill, an 1804 Federal manor house located on the library’s campus in Middleburg, Virginia, will house the library’s rapidly expanding permanent collection of fine paintings, sculpture, and objets d’art. The new museum will be completed in the fall of 2011, and visitors will be welcomed through the doors of this historic brick structure to view exhibitions in an inviting setting, very much like the houses for which these works of art were originally commissioned. Works by American, British, and Continental artists, such as Abraham Van Calraet, John Emms, Herbert Haseltine, Pierre Jules Mêne, Sir Alfred Munnings, John R. Skeaping, Edward Troye, and Franklin Brooke Voss will be on display. The museum’s new wing, a two-story gallery space, will be the venue for exhibitions of animal and sporting art developed by the curatorial staff and researched in the library’s extensive collection of 17,000 sporting books, periodicals, archives, and other media. NSLM’s staff will work with visiting scholars to offer fresh perspective to the accepted masterworks of the genre, and will seek to bring these works and many more that are as yet undiscovered to public view. Paintings and sculpture are currently being drawn from private collections, museums, and other institutions throughout the United States for Afield in America: 400 Years of Animal and Sporting Art, 1585 - 1985. This landmark exhibit, the first to be held in the new museum building, is designed to raise awareness of the importance of works of this genre as a reflection of American history and cultural life and will be on view from October 2011 through January 2012. For more information, go to www.nsl.org or call (540) 687-6542. ••••

Foxhound Wins Two Best in Shows

The Hunt Country cluster of back-to-back dog shows in one location was held from September 29 through October 2, 2011 at historic Long Branch, Millwood, Virginia. On Friday, September 30, the Warrenton Kennel Club all breed show had a surprise ending. After considering the group winners, Judge Robert Vandiver picked the English Foxhound “GCH CH Sunup’s Parliament,” known more casually as Parley, Best in Show. The second event, also a Warrenton Kennel Club show, was held on Saturday, October 1, 2011. After winning Best in Show on Friday, Parley decided to do it again on Saturday. This time, Judge Donavan Thompson chose Parley Best in Show. Parley was handled both days by Linda Hylton. Folks are not sure when the last time, if ever, an English Foxhound won back-toback BIS, but it is an exceptional happening for AKC’s rarest breed. It is worth noting when a rare breed takes a Best in Show and, by AKC standards, they don’t get much rarer than the English Foxhound. The breed ranks dead last in AKC registrations with only 17 dogs registered in 2010. Congratulations to breeders Cornelia Dettmer, MD and Sue Whaley, and owners Mr. and Mrs. Craig Heile and Sue Whaley. Thanks to them all for keeping this great breed before the American public. Earlier in the week, on September 29, the English Foxhound Club of America National Specialty was also held at Long Branch and the Best in Breed was “Sunup’s Trademark” repeating his win at the Specialty in 2010. He is owned by Vince Nicholson, bred by Sue Whaley, and handled by Whitney Meeks. Best of Breed at the National Specialty Show “Sunup’s Trademark.” Janet Hitchen photo

Committee over the past 25 years and owns Don Stewart Stables, Inc. in Ocala, FL, where he resides with Nancy, his wife of 28 years, and their 3 children, Whitney, Don 3rd and Erin, the 2002 ASPCA Maclay Finals winner (which was the last time it was at WIHS), WIHS Best Child Rider in 2001 and 2002 and WIHS Leading A/O Rider in 2009. We caught up with both Hasbrouck and Don to talk about riding and training in general and specifically about the Washington International Horse Show, which both trainer and student have taken part in for many years. This year’s show will takes place October 25-30 at Verizon Center in the heart of Washington, DC. Here’s what they had to say. Hasbrouck Donovan Q: What are your earliest memories of being on a horse or pony? HD: The first pony that I ever rode was a white pony named Howie. I was 4 so I don’t really remember how it felt (to be honest). Growing up my favorite place to go was this very old backyard barn where I would get very dirty, but it was so much fun. There were just horses and ponies and chickens and dogs. I would be there all day and even in the summer and just loved every minute of grooming, mucking stalls, feeding, and even watching a pony be born.

I have been riding with Bibby and Don and they have really helped me to grow and mature as a person and as a rider. We are on the road a lot

Q: As a young rider what do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of being with horses? DS: The advantages are that it teaches discipline, structure and responsibility.

Friday night is the Puissance high-jump, a real favorite of the audience, as horses jump the ever-rising wall. The goal for both the riders and the spectators (who are sitting at the edge of their seats) is to break the record set by Anthony D’Ambrosio in 1983 at 7’7½”. Saturday night is when one elite young rider will claim the WIHS Equitation Championship title, as the top junior riders in the nation vie for this coveted title. The culminating event of the show is the $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix. Winning that class is one of the goals of every grand prix rider as it is one of the most sought-after titles in the sport.

Buffed Chrome is Golden in the Palomino Ranks Published: Saturday, March 26, 2011, 11:08 PM

Updated: Sunday, March 27, 2011, 10:30 AM

By Nancy Jaffer/For The Star-Ledger Follow [WIHS mention extracted from article] The Washington International Horse Show has a new lease on life after the signing of a threeyear agreement with the Verizon Center, its home in the heart of the city. There were always rumors that the show would not be able to survive because of the high cost of putting it on in an urban area at a major arena. The agreement should silence the naysayers. And despite the inconveniences involved, such as stabling on the street, exhibitors continue to make the show a goal because it enjoys a special cachet from being in the nation's capital. "It is our goal to continue to ensure Washington is a `must-attend' event for the equestrian world and the Washington D.C. community," said Juliet Reid, the show's president. Eric Straus, who was the show's CEO, left in an amicable parting after he was unable to sell his home in Connecticut. Washington D.C. resident Bridget Love Meehan, who most recently was a senior marketing executive at Discovery Communications, will start this week as executive director. "One of the things I want to focus on is getting a whole new generation of young riders interested in the show," said Meehan. "This is one of the few shows you can look to as a goal. We need to continue making the show as unique and special as we can and making it a real destination." Noting Meehan has been involved with the show as an exhibitor and member of the marketing and communications committee, Reid said, "Bridget brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the areas of marketing and sponsorship and she has a strong background and understanding of the requirements needed to produce a world class event." ###

Today's ESDCTA Horse Trials at the Horse Park of New Jersey were cancelled because of the weather. A three-year-old stallion from Gloucester County had to be put down earlier this month after contracting Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Like West Nile, EEE is a mosquito-borne illness, but EEE causes brain tissue inflammation and is more serious. An 11-year-old Monmouth County mare who contracted West Nile is being treated for that disease, a virus that affects the neurological system. Horse owners are being urged by the state Department of Agriculture to have their animals vaccinated against these illnesses, especially since heavy rain recently has increased New Jersey's mosquito population. EEE and West Nile virus, like other viral diseases affecting horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; neurological systems, must be reported to the state veterinarian at within 48 hours of diagnosis.

Cinderella Storv: NeVille Bardos Goes from Beath's Boor to Burghlev in 11 Weeks show jumping because we were just spending so much time on his fitness," Martin said. "We basically were just getting him fit for the event with galloping and long trot sets." The hard work paid off. Martin and Neville landed in England a week before Burghley ready to tackle the biggest challenge of their eventing career. "It was very surreal and emotional being there, looking around at one of the world's greatest events with a horse you'd had such a history with," Martin said.

by Jennifer Autry Many phrases have been used to describe Boyd Martin and Neville Bardos's trip to the Burghley four star event in England, which culminated in a seventh-place finish, last month -- Cinderella story, ultimate comeback, fairy-tale ending. But the story is far from over. With Neville coming away sound from his successful trip to Burghley, the Olympic rings in London are not far from sight. Martin is feeling cautiously optimistic about his Olympics chances after Burghley, which was held just two months after Neville's brush with death during a fatal barn fire at True Prospect Farm.

F eeIing the Love

Six horses lost their lives

in the Memorial Day weekend fire. Neville was the last horse to make it out alive, pulled to safety

by Martin and eventing great Phillip Dutton by the horse's cribbing collar. After the fire left Neville with severe bums in his throat, Martin knew it would be a longshot for the horse to ever compete again, much less at one of the most grueling events in the world. Neville made daily visits to the hyperbaric oxygen chamber at Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland to breathe pure oxygenated air for almost a month. Ultrasounds and scopes of his throat showed the extensive damage was beginning to heal. "Initially, at the time of the fire, I thought there was no way he would compete, which was

Neville Bardos was honored at Plantation Field International Three Day Event for surviving the Memorial Day weekend fire that killed sL~ of his stablemates and for going on to place seventh at possibly the world's most grueling three day event just seventeen weeks later. Thanks to his cribbing strap, Neville was the last horse to be pulled from the burning barn by owner Boyd Martin (above) and Trlle Prospect Farm owner Phillip Dutton, and suffered the most serious smoke inhalation wounds.

devastating," Martin said. UBut as time went on we noticed the

horse improving in his health. The plan was always to do Burgbley, so I started thinking that maybe we could."

From the very start of the event, it seemed like the world was watching Martin and Neville, cheering them on after what had been a horrific summer. Many competitors personally told Martin "good luck" and came out to watch his dressage test on the first day. "It was great to see all the riders, owners, spectators and supporters, who also have a connection with horses and understand the hardship and pain we went through losing the horses in the fire, come out to cheer him on," Martin said. Neville and Boyd scored 49.7 in their dressage test, which left them in 11 th place after day one of dressage and 24th after the end of the second day. Martin felt the test was "relatively good" considering how little dressage training Neville had before Burghley.

straining a shoulder muscle at the Red Hills Horse Trials in March. The lay-up period before and after the fire meant Martin had to scramble to get Neville fit enough to compete. After a successful outing at the Millbrook Horse trials at the beginning of August, where Nev-

ille placed fourth in the Advanced division, Martin knew Burghley, held September 1-4, was in his reach. He began what he called an ''un-ideal preparation" for the event, given he had less than a month left until Burghley. "We really didn't have much time to work on dressage and

Washington Int'l Horse Show, Verizon Center, Washington DC Laura Kraut and Teirra Win $10,000 Open Jumper at the Washington International Horse Show Kaley Pratt Rode Shane to the $10,000 Adult Amateur Jumper Championship Kendall Bierer for PhelpsSports.com Reporting from Washington Int'l Horse Show, Verizon Center, Washington DC Thursday, October 27, 2011 :: Posted 12:18:13 AM CDT

many of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top riders. The jumper courses are designed by Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC, and feature numerous fences placed strategically around the ring to test those riders willing to attempt them. The course was the same for both the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jumper Championship and the Adult Amateur Jumper Championship. Each competitor had a time allowed of 66 seconds to make it fault-free in the first round. The course began over a standalone green and white oxer where the rider then had to bend to a single vertical. The third fence, a single vertical near the in-gate, led to an outside fourstride line consisting of an oxer to a vertical. Making a right hand turn, the pair jumped a vertical with a solid five-stride to the oxer-vertical-vertical combination. Riders were then faced with an oxer on the outside bending to a tight vertical-oxer combination. After, they had to successfully clear a natural oxer on the far end of the ring and make a sharp left to a single vertical, finishing over the final WIHS oxer near the in-gate. The $10,000 Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jumper Championship featured 28 of the top qualifying children jumpers. Although the course proved to be a challenge, 11 horse and rider combinations successfully went clear from the first round and advanced to the jump-off. The jump-off course began over the single oxer bending to the vertical; however, riders then had to make a tight right turn between fences, clear the oxer and make a sharp right rollback over the vertical of the triple combination. Making a left hand turn, the pairs showed over the vertical in the outside line and finished with the vertical bending to the oxer. Each rider had 42 seconds to complete the short course.

Ryan Goodman and Pulsatilla W Isabelle Shafran and Shinkansen were the first to post a double-clear effort in a time of 34.047 seconds during the jump-off, but when Ryan Goodman and Pulsatilla W entered the ring, it became apparent that their time would be hard to beat. Shafran eventually earned the fourth place prize, falling just behind Belle Fulmer and Godspeed who stopped the clock at 33.298 seconds. Katherine Strauss aboard Fardela raced around the course, posting a double-clear effort, but her time of 32.254 seconds could not compare to Goodman and Pulsatilla W. The duo sliced turns, kept a strong gallop throughout, and tripped the beam in 31.940 seconds. It was a time that although many tried to touch, could not come close.

Belle Fulmer and Godspeed

“Pulsatilla and I have an amazing relationship and we're perfect partners for each other,” explained Goodman. “We went out there and tried to go clean in the first round, but in the jump-off we tried to use our turns and gallop to our advantage, and it worked. I have to say, when I walked out I wasn't sure what everyone else had, but I was pretty confident that we would do well.” The talented duo has been riding together since February, and this was their first time showing at the Washington International Horse Show. “I was a little concerned about the ring, it’s a completely different experience, but I loved it. I don't think she's been here before; it's the first time for both of us,” smiled Goodman as she patted Pulsatilla W. As the evening continued, the $10,000 WIHS Adult Amateur Jumper Championship got underway. Only six horse and rider combinations of the 30 entries went clear and had no time faults in the first round. Katherine Edgell and Miss Kitty were the first to enter the ring and attempt the short course. Making a tight inside turn after the fourth jump, the duo was able to cut their time and stop the clock at 29.733 seconds. The target time seemed as though it would not be beat. Although the others attempted the tight inside turn, it was Kaley Pratt aboard Shane who executed it perfectly, beating Edgell and tripping the beam at 28.829 seconds.

Kaley Pratt and Shane “I still can't believe it actually,” Pratt remarked. “I just tried to go as fast as I could and make all of the inside turns that we had talked about. I got a little nervous going to the inand-out, but then he just kept going.” Hannah Murrin and Valentina finished in the third place position also posting a double-clear effort. Although the duo had no rails, their choice to avoid the tight inside turn cost them and they finished with a time of 34.072 seconds. The fourth place award was presented to Helen Lavery and her efforts with Amidala who unfortunately had a rail at the fourth fence, attempting to make the inside turn. In the fifth place position, Amanda Hood and Boy-O-Boy finished with four faults and a time of 46.245 seconds. Earning the sixth place award for their round, Alissa Kinsey and Grisset finished with four jumping faults and a time of 54.591 seconds.              Katherine Edgell and Miss Kitty (left) and Hannah Murrin and Valentina (right) “I thought the course was good—it was tough with only five in the jump-off,” explained Pratt. “The hardest part of the jump-off was the rollback to the fourth fence, and then making that inside turn back to the in-and-out, but once we got that, we were good. He's very careful, so I just make sure that he gets to see the jumps when I enter the ring. I know that I can ride him right to the base and he'll jump clean and help me out. I also have an edge in the jumpoffs because I know we can go faster without me having to protect him.” The highlight event of the evening commenced shortly after the ring crew set the new course. It consisted of 10 jumps designed to challenge the horses for their speed and agility. The purpose of the $10,000 Open Jumper Time First Jump-Off class was to go fast and clean, posting the best time and taking home the prize. 25 riders gathered to attempt the course. It started out with the WIHS oxer near the in-gate, bending to the single vertical in the middle of the ring. From there, the duo had to make a hard right to the third jump, a vertical with a solid five-stride leading to the triple vertical-oxer-vertical combination. Taking a swift left hand turn, the pair then had to collect for the outside oxer headed down the line to the sixth obstacle, an oxer-vertical double combination. With a hard left turn, the pairs then blazed over the single vertical in the center of the ring taking it in the opposite direction, and then making a right turn over the vertical-liverpool obstacle. With a right rollback over the green and white oxer, they then continued to finish over the grey oxer headed toward the ingate.

Laura Kraut and Teirra The first pair to enter the ring was Laura Kraut and Teirra, owned by Stars & Stripes. The talented horse and rider combination were not only the first to attempt the course, but also the first to go clear and set the target time of 52.50 seconds. Reed Kessler aboard Pacha De Nantuel had the spectators holding their breath as she sped around the course; however, an unfortunate rail on the final fence eventually earned the duo the tenth place position for their four-fault effort and time of 47.51 seconds, the fastest time of the class. “To be honest, I did not think that my time would hold up,” explained Kraut. “I thought I would just go nice and smooth and do the strides and that would be it. I planned on maybe sixth or seventh, but it just worked out. This is a difficult ring and I think that the horses, even the seasoned ones, go in that ring and sometimes get a little star struck.” Emilie Martinsen and Gucci earned the second place award for their clear round and time of 57.20 seconds, followed by Margie Engle aboard Lord Spezi finishing with a time of 58.83 seconds. Scott Brash and Bon Ami were awarded the fourth place position for their efforts in the class and their final time of 62.57 seconds. Coming in fifth place, Nick Dello Joio and Notre Star Le Nutria went clear and finished in 64.25 seconds. Matt Williams and Watch Me VD finished with the one time fault, earning the sixth place prize for their efforts of 67.57 seconds. Kraut’s time stood the duration of the class, something the gifted rider admitted she did not expect. She only recently got the ride on Tierra in May, but she has grown to adore her. “She has been really great and I love everything about her. She is brave, she tries really hard, she tries to do everything the right way, which is really helpful because you really need that at this level,” described Kraut. “I don’t think that she has shown here before, but I am sure that she jumped indoors in Europe when she was a young horse. She is one of those horses where nothing really fazes her.”

tonight with Teirra felt fantastic,” concluded Kraut.

“The course was great tonight, and it was a great warm-up. For instance, my second horse, Woodstock O, hasn’t shown since the beginning of August, and he’s only eight, so it was nice for him to go in and not have to make any short turns, you could go wide if you wanted. The course was a perfect lead off for the week, and the win

Washington Int'l Horse Show, Verizon Center, Washington DC Todd Minikus and Sweetheart Take the Gamble at the Washington International Horse Show

Banana D’ive Z and Meagan Nusz rode to the top honors in the $5,000 High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers as the only pair to go double-clear Kendall Bierer for PhelpsSports.com

Reporting from Washington Int'l Horse Show, Verizon Center, Washington DC Thursday, October 27, 2011 :: Posted 11:59:05 PM CDT

Todd Minikus and Sweetheart won the $20,000 Open Jumper Gambler's Choice Costume Challenge at the Washington International Horse Show. Washington, D.C. – October 27, 2011 – It was another day full of jumper excitement at the 2011 Washington International Horse Show. The highlight event of the evening was the $20,000 Open Jumper Gambler’s Choice Costume Class where Todd Minikus and Sweetheart proved victorious. The afternoon featured the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper division where top riders vied for the top honors and later in the evening, the $5,000 High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper class got underway. Sarah Tredennick and Vigaro took home the top award for their double-clear efforts in the $31,000 Open Jumper class. The $20,000 Open Jumper Gambler’s Choice Costume Class had the audience in awe as riders’ created a course all their own. The rules of the class are simple: the rider begins heading towards the side of the ring they wish to begin, and aims to earn as many points as possible before the buzzer sounds. The fences each are given a numerical value from 20-110, and should the rider have an unfortunate rail, it would not count against them. Also, the duo could not jump a fence more than twice. Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC, designed the course tonight, testing the riders on the horse’s athleticism, quick reflexes and speed. The gamble came at the end of the 50 seconds, when the rider had to decide whether or not they were going to attempt the “Joker” fence in the center of the ring. Should they successfully clear it, then they would gain an additional 200 points; if they didn’t, it would be subtracted. Each rider dressed in a costume of their choice, and entered the ring with a plan in mind. Saer Coulter and Julia Des Brumes were the first to exceed 1,000 points with their tight turns and speedy pace. The duo earned 960 points, and then decided to take the gamble on the “Joker,” going smoothly across, they earned the additional 200 points for a 1,160 point total and eventually the second place prize. Nick Skelton and Unique filled the third place position for their efforts and 1,110 point total. Although Skelton had originally taken and cleared the “Joker” prior to the tone, he was granted another chance and successfully made it over a second time to the spectator’s amazement.

The next rider in the ring proved to be the best of the evening’s class. Todd Minikus and Sweetheart began by taking the natural stone oxer on the outside of the ring headed away from the in-gate. Although it was a path that many took, Minikus executed it flawlessly. The duo made a sharp turn to the vertical and then circled back around to take the grey oxer not once, but with after a right hand turn to the red and white 100-point vertical, he took it again. Minikus and Sweetheart scored 480 points before even progressing to the other end of the ring, sticking precisely to the plan they had already created. With a few more quick turns, Minikus ended with 970 points, but wanting to gamble with the score, he went for the “Joker” and cleared it garnering the top score of 1,190 points.

Todd Minikus and Sweetheart “Often times when you look at the course layout on paper, it doesn’t fit when they actually place the jumps in the ring. The course I took tonight is the pattern I took on the paper, it was the only one I went in the ring knowing,” explained Minikus. “I am not smart enough to try to make up or two or three and try to remember them, with too many plans it becomes distracting. I had no room for improvisation out there tonight. It was my first crack at it, I stuck with it and it worked.”

Each consecutive rider tried to contest Minikus’ score, but the target score held its place. Nick Dello Joio and Geledimar Z earned 1,110 points, good enough for the fourth place honors. The fifth place award was presented to Margie Engle and her efforts aboard Lord Spezi for earning 1,080 points and successfully winning the gamble of the “Joker.”

Margie Engle and Lord Spezi Tonight Minikus sported an Uncle Sam costume chosen by Sweetheart’s groom. “She was saying that Uncle Sam had to win in the Capital,” Minikus laughed. “The class and costumes are fun for the crowd and people that don’t get to come to a lot of horse shows. That’s what is nice about Indoors, people get to be a little bit closer to the action—it is not the same old cookie cutter horse show.” The afternoon showcased the world’s top riders vying for the winning honors in the $31,000 Open Jumper class. Out of the 24 who attempted the course, six proceeded into the jumpoff. The course began over the first fence, the green and white stone oxer at the far end of the ring leading into a sharp right turn to the vertical-liverpool obstacle. From there, the riders must continue in a bending line over the oxer heading toward the in-gate making a left turn over the single vertical. Moving forward, the horse and rider takes the outside verticaloxer combination making a hard right to a vertical and then proceeding to make a left rollback to the final oxer of a triple combination, stopping the clock.

Sarah Tredennick and Vigaro

Todd Minikus and Sweetheart Take the Gamble at the Washington International Horse Show - PhelpsSports.com Sarah Tredennick and the ten-year-old Belgian Warmblood Vigaro were the second pair to attempt the course, blazing over the obstacles and posting the first double-clear effort of the class. The talented duo tripped the beam at 35.36 seconds, becoming the time to beat for the remainder of the jump-off. Although Nick Skelton came close to Tredennick’s time, his clear efforts and time of 35.62 seconds proved good enough for the second place position. Indigo and Margie Engle were the final team to complete a clear short. Taking the jumps a little conservatively, Engle posted a time of 37.25 seconds, earning the third place ribbon.

       

Nick Skelton and Carlo 273 (left) and Margie Engle and Indigo (right) “I showed here when I was a kid doing the Pony Hunters and Junior Hunters; it has been four years since I’ve returned. This was unimaginable for me; it was great,” said Tredennick. “We came off the entire fall a little rusty, had a great week in Pennsylvania, but this was unexpected.” The pair has several accolades under their belt such as a grand prix win this June. “He’s getting better and better, he’s still young, but he becomes better and better every year,” explained Tredennick. “I was a little taken back by how different it is to ride in that ring, you have to bounce off the corners and really stick to one decision, but it worked well for me. I knew that when it came to the jump-off I was going to go for it, but I had no anticipation of winning, I’m really happy with him.” The $5,000 High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper class provided the spectators with an evening full of excitement. The course tested the riders and horses alike with challenging distances and tight turns. Out of the 22 entries, three were able to go clean and progress into the jump-off. Charlotte Jacobs and Promised Land were the first pair to dare the short course. Although they sped around the course with amazing agility and speed stopping the timer at 29.127 seconds, an unfortunate rail earned the duo the second place honors. Next to enter the ring was Genevieve Zock aboard Olinda.  The team fell in the third place position with a time of 31.812 seconds and a total of eight faults. It was Banana D’ive Z and Meagan Nusz who rode the course smooth and clean, executing a double-clear effort and tripping the beam at 31.942 seconds to take home the blue ribbon honors.

Genevieve Zock and Olinda   “I thought the course was great, I didn’t know how the ring was going to ride—it’s kind of small in there, but the course rode the way you walked it,” remarked Nusz. “It was hard enough and was challenging, especially since only three went clean. My plan going into the jump-off was not to push her at all anyway. I wanted to save her for the weekend for the bigger classes. I got the best draw going in third, all I had to do was go clean.” The talented duo has been riding together for the last year and a half when Nusz bought her in Europe. “I just started riding with Kent Farrington when I got Banana so we are building the team,” said Nusz. “She is my ideal type. A lot of people don’t like the hot go after the jump kind of mount and she goes in a hackamore, which interferes with the steering a bit, but she is super straight forward, she knows her job and is super careful. Every time I go in the ring I just have to do my job and she takes care of the rest.” Earlier in the day, the Low Junior and Amateur-Owner Jumper division began where KC Van Aarem and Mastermind took home the top prize with their double-clear efforts. The eight clear riders attempted the short course, but it was Aarem’s time of 29.318 that proved the best. Michael Hughes aboard Red Hot came in a close second also posting a second clear round; however, he tripped the beam at 29.959 seconds, falling just behind the target time and eventually earning the second place position. The third place prize was awarded to Samantha Schaefer and Sugar Ray for their clean jump-off round, finishing in a time of 30.347 seconds.

Washington Int'l Horse Show, Verizon Center, Washington DC Chase Boggio Scores 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Victory Hayley Barnhill places second, while Elizabeth Benson picks up third Rebecca Walton for PhelpsSports.com Reporting from Washington Int'l Horse Show, Verizon Center, Washington DC Saturday, October 29, 2011 :: Posted 08:58:35 PM CDT

Chase Boggio and Massimo won the 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Washington, DC – October 29, 2011 – The highlight event for today’s junior riders at the Washington International Horse Show was the WIHS Equitation Classic, an event they work to qualify for throughout the year. Shawn Casady led the way after yesterday’s Hunter Phase, and Elizabeth Benson jumped to the top after the Jumper Phase. Eventually the top ten were called back for the Final Work-Off, and it was Chase Boggio who showcased incredible horsemanship to earn the winning title with a score of 262.166. The second place honors went to Hayley Barnhill who earned a score of 259.999, while Elizabeth Benson had a score of 258.499 to pick up the third place award. After completing the Hunter and Jumper Phases of the WIHS Classic, the top ten riders with the highest combined scores were invited to return for the Final Work-Off. In addition to having to switch to a new mount, riders had to compete over the Jumper Phase course designed by Michel Vaillancourt, which featured numerous bending lines and rollbacks, a liverpool, a vertical-oxer double combination, and an oxer-vertical, oxer triple combination. It proved to be Boggio’s weekend from the start as he showed his large mount Massimo to a score of 85.333 in the Hunter Phase to place sixth, and then moved into second with a score of 89 following a quick and clean Jumper Phase. He was thrilled to draw Elizabeth Benson’s

mount Calito 7 during the Final Work-Off, as he competed aboard the talented horse during last year’s Finals. The duo was smooth and accurate, receiving scores of 88, 87, and 88.5 for a three round total of 262.166. His incredibly consistent efforts and excellent display of horsemanship eventually garnered him the winning title.

Chase Boggio and Calito 7 “It means a lot to win here because I’ve been second in pretty much every big class that there is in the United States, so it feels good to finally win one,” smiled Boggio. “I got very lucky, I think that it was fate because I got switched on to Calito, who I leased last year. He’s an amazing horse and it only took me three jumps to get to know him again. I was really happy with him, and Massimo of course.” Boggio continued, “I purchased Massimo in November of 2009, and he has been amazing for me.” “When I tried him in Europe he was very green and couldn’t canter in a straight line. I told Christina he could never do the equitation, but she saw his potential.”

Chase Boggio and Massimo Explaining his success in the equitation Boggio said, “I’ve been very lucky to compete in some big jumper classes with Hennessey, and it makes the equitation look easy because it is much smaller, but it’s still the same exact thing. You are just riding a quieter horse, but it’s not really all that different with each discipline.”

Chase Boggio Scores 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Victory - PhelpsSports.com During the year, Boggio trained with Christina Schlusemeyer of Quiet Hill Farm and Stacia Madden of Beacon Hill. Schlusemeyer added, “Chase is a hard worker, he takes it seriously, and he should be an example to all other equitation riders: if you want it, you can get it.” Boggio will be wrapping up his last junior year soon, and plans to take a year off before attending school. He has not made any decisions about a career in the industry, and wants to spend four years focusing on school. The second place award went to Hayley Barnhill, winner of the 2010 ASPCA Maclay National Championship and the USEF/Pessoa Hunter Seat Medal. Her weekend did not go quite as planned after her intended mount, Asparagus, had a small injury just one day prior to the event. At the last minute she caught the ride on Camora, a mount she had never ridden, but she showed her incredible skill by earning an 87 during the Hunter Phase and an 86 during the Jumper Phase. Barnhill held the second place position going into tonight’s Final Work-Off and earned scores of 83, 85, and 91 with Boggio’s original mount Massimo to earn a 259.999 overall score. “I was really happy with Chase’s horse, he’s a big strided horse and I thought he was great,” noted Barnhill. “I think to prepare we all gear everything up a few day before and get our horses and ourselves ready.”

Chase Boggio Scores 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Victory - PhelpsSports.com Hayley Barnhill and Massimo “Hayley has never shown Camora, so she had two that she had never ridden, but like a true double national champion she rose to the occasion because it was an unplanned change that we made,” explained Clark, who trains Barnhill at North Run throughout the year along with Tom Wright. “We were graciously loaned Camora at the last minute, and you don’t see that generosity very often.” This marks Barnhill’s last junior year, but the two time national champion plans to turn professional next year and work for Wright, while attending school online. Judge Steve Wall remarked, “These two have always been near the top and today was their day, the cream rises to the top. There are riding styles in the two of them that are more polished and more finished that some of the others would make one little bobble that really ended up being the small decided factor, at least on my card.”

Elizabeth Benson and Vancouver After winning today’s Jumper Phase and taking over the lead going into today’s Final WorkOff, Elizabeth Benson took home the third place honors. She earned scores of 82, 81.5, and 80 with Sarah Milliren’s Vancouver for a total of 258.499. The fourth place ribbon went to Megan O’Mara, whose scores of 90, 89, and 88 during the Final Work-Off with Charlotte Jacobs’ Stallone VDL won the round, and moved them up from eighth with a total of 256.416.

Meg O'Mara and Stallone VDL The Washington International Horse Show will come to a close tomorrow as young riders compete in the Pony Hunter Divisions. After showcasing their skills in two over fences classes the championship and reserve championship honors will be determined for each respective size group. The Grand Champion Pony Hunter title will also be announced, and the Best Child Rider on a Pony will be determined.

Washjngton International Horse Show signed a deal to extend its stay at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC, until 20 13. The cou ntry's leading Indoor championship horse show is also under new leadership. Former Discovery Communications executive Bridget Love Meehan joined the show as executive director. Meehan is an active rider and competitor who formerly served as the director of communkations fo r the US Equestrian Federation.

Buyers, Sellers Beware in CA Patterned after a similar law passed in Kentucky several yea rs ago, the California legislature recently amended a statute that now requires written documentation for horse sales, whether the sale is between private individuals or is part of a business transaction. The California Business and Professions Code § 19525 was modified to require the following: All horse transactions must be accompanied by a written bill of sale signed by both the buyer and seller or their agents; if an agent is acting on behalf of both the buyer and seller, this dual agency must be disclosed in writing; any comm ission paid to an agent in an amount over $500 must be disclosed in the written bill of sale. If these rules are not followed and a lawsuit is brought, the person injured by the violation will be allowed to recover three times the amount of the actual damage.

FOR HORSE PEOPLE路 ABOUT HORSE PEOPLE

Five Questions for Bridget Love Meehan Bridget Love Meehan is the new Executive Director of the Washington International Horse Show. Bridget has an MBA in marketing/communications, and managed public relations and the American Horse Shows Association

magazine for a year until they moved their headquarters to Lexington, KY. As a past WIHS competitor she brings a unique vision to this year's show. Sidelines: Tell us about your riding background. BlM: My grandfather introduced me to horses and riding as a young girl. As I took my first lessons, leased and then bought my own horse and grew from local shows into the junior hunter ri ng, he was always my biggest fan. I grew up and rode in Buffalo, NY. I stopped riding when I headed off to college, then to New York City where I worked as a literary agent for several years. After moving to Washington, DC and managing a special events and fundraising firm, I became good friends with one of my clients at Discovery Communications. She convinced me to get back in the saddle and before I knew it, I was the proud owner of a terrific you ng horse. We showed in the adult amateur hunter ring for a year until I had my baby girl in 2009. The fast pace of new parenthood took over, but I rode when I could find the time (i.e., not often!). I didn't go back into the show ring until W IHS Regional Weekend in 2010 and, as luck would have it, turned in some great rounds and ended up co mpeting at the Verizon Center. Such a thrill! Sidelines: What have you brought to your new position at WIHS from your past jobs Bl M: My varied career brings a lot of depth to my present role. Having represented authors and writers in negotiating their publishing contracts and helping them manage their careers gives me great respect for people with a true talent and passion for what they do and an understanding of the challenges involved in managing a career or a small business, like many in the horse industry. My time at the AHSA gave me a good perspective on how a national governing organization runs and handles issues facing its membership. It also gave me insight into the many levels of politics that need to be managed for the benefit of the sport as a whole. Working in special events and fundraising in DC was a terrific way to learn how to put on a fabulous production in the nation's capita l that taps into all the influential constituencies that make up this great city. And, my time at Discovery gave me further opportunity to work with and manage teams of smart, dedicated people and develop marketing and communication s campa igns to promote terrific brands from across the Discovery family of networks . Sidelines: What is it like to compete at W IHS? BlM: Washington was always a dream and goal. The idea of qualifying for one of the big indoor shows was part of the excitement of working hard all year. I love that I ended up in the ring at Washington by chance. I hadn't been riding much as a new mom and my trainer and the kids at my stable nudged me to join them at WIHS Regional weekend. It was so exciting to trot into the Verizon Center arena under the lights and cante r to that first fence. What a blast!

Bridget Love Meehan is a competitor as well as president of WIHS Photo by Diana De Rosa

Sidelines : Do you view things differently now that you are looking at WIHS from your new role? BlM: Having managed large-scale productions at Presidential Inaugurals, the national political conventions, gala fund raisers and VIP film screenings, I know how many arms and legs and hours of planning it takes to put on a major event. I really respect the amount of work that gets done by a very small and dedicated staff yea r-round at WIHS. Sidelines: Any final comments? Bl M: The dedication of the riders , trainers, owners, sponsors, board and volunteers who support WIHS inspires me and the staff to work hard every day to ensure this show will continue to give the nation's finest riders a chance to be showcased.

My Line

Indoors Are (Almost) Here ... By Sarah Ward We've worked tirelessly throughout the year, chasing points and dreams. Now we are at the final countdown to the all-consuming , all-important Indoors - The Capital Challenge Horse Show, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show, The Washington International Horse Show, and the National Horse Show! If we are lucky enough to make the cut, we will live a gypsy existence for four weeks. We happily pack up our bags and hit the road for the rewarding , exhilarating, and yes, even exhausting competitions. Hopefully our horses, and our minds, are in great shape and in the right place, ready to take on the final year-end challenge. Right now I'm not sure if I've qualified for all of Indoors; I missed half of the season because of my knee injury and the list has not been set yet, it's too early. My goal , if all goes to plan, is that my hunters Onassis and Voltaire and my jumper Ludwig Storgaard all qualify.. . "If wishes were horses .. ." Well, here's to good old fashioned English proverbs and wishing we make the cut!

I admit it: I’ve never even heard of mutton bustin’ until reading about the event, which is part of tonight’s lineup at the 53rd annual Washington International Horse Show, in yesterday’s Washington Post. Apparently mutton bustin’, in which kids weighing 60 lbs. or less play rodeo kings and queens while riding on SHEEP (like a fluffier and friendlier bull?), is popular in Australia. Wonder if it will catch on in the states. Or am I already behind?

feel inspired to do much other than lie down for a nice nap, but apparently it can get quite rowdy (witness the poor kid in the photo below). My curiosity is certainly piqued. I’ll even get to see the “action” live because my staff and I are attending tonight’s show (it’s BARN NIGHT, after all). Everyone at Blackburn enjoys watching

the terrier races, but I bet mutton bustin’ gives the dogs a run for their money, at least as far as the cute factor goes.

Fine Art Photography by Brady Willette The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and the Washington International Horse Show announce a new partnership to celebrate horses in Native American culture and equestrian sport throughout history.   The museum opens “A Song for the Horse Nation” Saturday, Oct. 29, at its flagship museum on the National Mall, a major exhibition that explores the role horses have played in Native culture from the 1500s to the present. The exhibition runs through Jan. 7, 2013. The Washington International Horse Show celebrates its 53rd year Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center. Together, the two organizations will celebrate these occasions with free family programs on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the museum, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at Verizon Center, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and all day Sunday, Oct. 30, at the museum. A free shuttle service between the museum and Verizon Center will be provided by Reston Limousine on Saturday.                                        Activities include free pony rides at Verizon Center Oct. 29 for WIHS Kids’ Day, war-pony painting demonstrations by Crow equestrian and tribal general council member Kennard Real Bird, storytelling by award-winning children’s book author and illustrator S.D. Nelson (Standing Rock Sioux), hands-on ledger-art lessons and much more at both locations.   “What better way for us to come together to illuminate our shared history and distinct cultures than through our mutual admiration for horses,” said museum director, Kevin Gover (Pawnee). “This unique collaboration celebrates the indomitable spirit not just of the Horse Nation, but of the whole nation. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Washington International Horse Show and know that the spectators at Verizon Center and the visitors to the museum will be, too.”

There can be no dispute that the equestrian world has and still does influence style, fashion, and design.  After a week at the Washington International Horse Show we’re reminded exactly why that fashion world continues to draw on its equestrian friends for inspiration.

Washington International | Three Days Three Ways

The equestrian world will continue to inspire designers around the world not just for the inherent style in our day-to-day lives whether a gleaming driving harness, a luxe wool rug, or the fine leather of our boots, but also for what we represent. The equestrian world is inspirational because it’s the symbiotic partnership between man and horse, it’s an afternoon hacking across a hillside in a Fall breeze, it’s dreams lived rather than dreams deferred. We are hope and happiness grounded in the sun rising early in the morning with the crunch of our boot on gravel as we prepare for a day with our horses. We don’t need an Hermes scarf to get that feeling. We already have it. We’re just passing it on. A heartfelt thanks to Leslie Threlkeld for the beautiful photos that capture the essence of equestrian elegance and spirit. There will be more to see at her equine photography website so be sure to visit and dive into the Washington International Horse Show!

The Washington International Horse Show dishes up competitive edge, soaring moments of glory, heart-breaking losses, and teeteringly high fences as well as its own fair share of style. One trend that popped out amidst the bustle was the

pervasive ear bonnet in coordinated colors. Used typically to shoo away pesky summer-time flies or to hush the roar of a crowd the ear bonnet, more and more, has become a style accessory to the equestrian attire. Some riders opted for classic looks like navy with a red accent

and others waded further into more unusual colors

Regardless of their color palette, though, all riders coordinated their horseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ear bonnet with their own attire.

I confess to caving to this particular trend and buying Ellie a black ear bonnet with gold trim. I justified it as a summer purchase to be used when trotting through the Virginia fields and forests which, while beautiful, offer up plenty of relentless winged, and biting, insects, much to my sweet Ellieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chagrin. The ear bonnet helps, no doubt, and we also stay right on trend. Â A win-win. What about you, are you on board with the trend for practical reasons or style concerns? Thanks to Leslie Threlkeld Media for these incredible photos. There are many more that capture the excitement of the show so be sure to visit her equine photography website to see the rest.

of our favorite things right into the heart of the city. Into the heart of our capitol city, as a matter of fact. And with it comes everything we can dream of from masterful horsemanship and performance from the charming Australian Guy McLean

perfect ponies, and lots and lots of teeteringly high jumps with horses soaring clear across. The temporary stalls squat right in the middle of the city across the street from the National Portrait Gallery (check out the collection of Native American Portraits in between rounds) and tuck in tight next to the Verizon Center where hockey, basketball, and, when the time is right, horses take center stage. It makes for something of a double take when walking down the street and you pass a museum, a club with party goers chatting on the sidewalk, clusters of tourists clutching maps, and then (don’t blink) you might miss the tiny white pony primly walking by led by its equally tiny rider on their way to their next class. It’s refreshing, unexpected, and exciting. What’s more, where we have horses and performance we have, inevitably, equestrian style.

We’ll have more on that soon thanks to the talent and vision of equestrian photographer Leslie Threlkeld . For now I recommend grabbing a ticket for the show if you’re anywhere near by. Terriers on the run, darling ponies, heart-stopping showjumping feats, and classic equaestrian style may be part of your everyday life, but I doubt you get to do that in the heart of a beautiful city.   Grab your tickets online and Leslie and I will meet you

Mark Leone Grand Prix Rider and Trainer Ri-Arm Farm, Oakland, NJ " It was in 1982, the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden. It was my second year at the Garden showing in the Open division. Back then, t.he World Cup was a three-rounder: afternoon, evening and then t he jump off. You really had to work fo r it. They had all of the great International teams there. I was riding my Belgian-bl'ed gelding, Tim, and we made it into the jwnp-off with a star-st.udded pack: Melanie Smith on Calypso, Rodney Jenkins, etc. I was second to last in the order; Melanie went after me. And I won! It was the most magical moment of my career at. that time. II Q

Joe Fargis Grand Prix Rider and Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist Middleburg, VA and Southampton, NY " It was winning the Junior Handy Hunters at the Washington International Horse Show when I was 14 or 15 years old. I could not believe that I had won a class there. I rode a horse named Result, 14.3, and I remember the course perfectly. There was a pen and he just slipped around and over it, just the way he was supposed to, like it was nothing. "At the time I was going to a riding school in Virginia called Junior Equitation School and we all went to the WIHS every year as a school. We had a trainer, Mrs. Dillon, but we were actually on our own and were quite self-sufficient and did our own thing. It was not in my head at the time that I would ever go on to ride internationally and become an Olympic rider." Q

"MY

most memorable indoor moment was winning on a horse named Sheffield in the Regular Working Hunters at the lOath National Horse

Show. "Sheffield was an interesting horse that we sort of recycled. He was a Junior Hunter that was a good Junior Hunter and we bought him for a young rider named Joanna Wahl. He also had been showing in the Working Hunters a little bit, so it worked out for all of us. I got on with the horse quite well and thr oughout all indoors he just got better and better and then at the National Horse Show he won and it was very exciting." Q

"MY

most memorable indoor moment was at the National Horse Show when it was held in New Jersey at the Meadowlands. I showed my Amateur-Owner horse, Ladybug, at Harrisburg and Washington and she won the under saddle class at both with a few ribbons over fences. And now here we were at the National Horse Show, the last fence class of the last show----and we won it! I was jubilant, and as we wer e leaving the ring, a woman approached me and asked if! would sell her. So I did and she never came back home with me. "I had originally bought the horse from Judy Young and spent the year competing on the southern circuit. I flew back and forth from Long Island to Florida and all the southern states. Selling her covered all the expenses I had incurred during this great year. I never got another hunter after L adybug and went straight to the jumpers." Q

Washington, D.C., August 4, 2011 – The Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) is offering an elegant new way to experience the most exciting indoor equestrian sporting event in the country, which will be held October 25-30, 2011, at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.

Nick Skelton and Unique Thrill the Crowd with $25,000 Puissance Presented by The Boeing Company Victory at 53rd Washington International Horse Show Release: October 29 2011 Author: Jennifer Wood Media Inc.

Disciplines Competitions Points & Standings Rules & Regulation Officials & Education News & Media Search

Washington, D.C. - In an exciting display of horsepower, Nick Skelton (GBR) powered over the seven-foot Boeing wall to win the $25,000 Puissance on Unique, owned by Beverley Widdowson. The class was the highlight event on Friday of the 53rd Washington International Horse Show (WIHS). The WIHS continues through Sunday, October 30. The highlight class of the week is the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix presented by Events DC, CSI 3*-W on Saturday, October 29. The course designer for the jumper classes this week is Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC.

Nick Skelton and Unique dislodged some blocks, but the wall stayed up. Shawn Skelton was the only one to go clear in the fifth and McMillen Photography. final round when the wall was raised to seven feet tall (2.13m). Watch Nick Skelton and Unique's thrilling clear ride over the seven foot Boeing puissance wall at: http://jenniferwoodmedia.com/node/1116 As the only clear in the final round, Skelton was also awarded a $5,000 bonus from The Boeing Company. For his win, Skelton was presented with the Congressman's Challenge Trophy donated by the Late Honorable Rogers C.B. Morton and the Late Honorable F. Robert Watkins, of Pennsylvania as well as the Armed Forces Cup. The other two to make it to the final round were Andrew Kocher (USA) on Elizabeth Allen's Donnatello and Todd Minikus (USA) on Sweetheart, owned by Windsor Show Stables. They tied for second place. Scott Brash (GBR) and Stanley Brash's Intertoy Z knocked the blocks off the wall in the fourth round, when the wall was set at six feet, nine inches (2.05m) for fourth place, while Ljubov Kochetova (RUS) and Aslan retired after the second round with the wall at six feet (1.83m). Aaron Vale and Quito, owned by Walter Ulan, cleared the wall at five feet, six inches in the first round, but they had an unfortunate rail at the vertical in the original course for sixth place. Skelton is a veteran rider of six Olympic Games, and doesn't recall the number of times he has competed in a puissance class, but the important ones stood out in his memory. "I jumped 7’8” in London in 1978 over poles," he remembered. "I broke the high jump record there and I still hold that with Lastic, but I was young and brave then." Skelton also cleared 7'5" over a puissance wall with Apollo at the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in 1987. Now, he is a bit more conservative in his jumping. "I don’t like the Puissance at my age," the 54-yearold rider said with a smile. "You don’t need to fall and you can fall in those classes." Skelton said he chose to enter due to the small amount of entries in the class, but thought he would finish fifth or sixth. When he made it to the final round, he decided to go after the first two riders had faults. "I thought I had better go. It’s good really because with not many people in it, it is a shame for the show organizers, so I wanted to go and put a good show on. It was a good crowd; there were a lot of people here tonight," he said.

Skelton has been competing Unique, 10-year-old KWPN gelding by Indoctro, for almost two years, taking over the ride from Laura Kraut. "Unique has never been in a puissance before. He won a class this morning, and then I jumped him again and he stopped at the wall in that class and then we won this, so it was good. He felt the best in the last round actually. I am actually surprised he took it on really. He’s testing me every day, that one," he remarked. He continued, "He is a bit tricky. He tests you every day. You give an inch and he'll take a mile with you. You have to keep on top of him, but he is a good horse. He wins most classes." When asked about the smile on his face after he cleared the final round, he said, "I was shocked actually, I thought it was funny. Sometimes you need a bit of luck and it goes your way." In addition to their Puissance victory tonight, Skelton and Unique won the $10,000 International Open Jumper 1.40m Faults Converted class that was held earlier in the day. The pair jumped last in the class of thirteen and went clear in 52.470 seconds for the win. Skelton was awarded The General Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Perpetual Trophy donated by the late Arthur J. Morris. Mark Leone and Annie 66, owned by Ri-Arm Farm, finished in 55.900 for second place. Reed Kessler and Pacha de Nantuel finished in third with a time of 56.010 seconds. Skelton described his strategy going into the course, stating, "I was last to go, so I basically watched a few go and then I knew who was where and what I had to do. The advantage to going last is knowing exactly what you have to do during your round." Beginning the evening session, Reed Kessler, of Armonk, NY, rode Ligist to victory in tonight’s $31,000 International Open Jumper 1.50m class held just before the Puissance. In a faults converted format, Kessler and Ligist jumped clear and completed the course in 54.220 seconds. Kessler beat out Nick Dello Joio and Geledimar Z, owned by Wembley Farms Inc., who finished in 55.220 seconds. Third place went to Richie Moloney and Equinimity LLC’s Alsvid with their time of 55.420 seconds. Kessler is just seventeen years old and showed Ligist (a.k.a. Goose), an eleven-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding by Levantos II, in the junior jumpers at last year's WIHS. The pair moved up to competing at the international level this year and showed in Europe over the summer. "It has been a big step up," Kessler acknowledged. "We only got Goose as a junior jumper and that is what everyone thought he could do, but I always thought there was a little bit more in him. Every time we move him up he is great, so hopefully we will keep on moving up." Speaking about her ride tonight, Kessler stated, "I haven't had the best week, but my horses have jumped great and I just really wanted to go out with a bang. I knew the course had been tough and there were not a whole lot of clears, but I knew Nick was pretty quick, so I just tried to make some good turns and he jumped super." During the afternoon session, 18-year-old Christina Kelly of Nicholasville, KY, earned a victory in the $5,000 High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper speed class aboard Double H Farm's HH Narcos Du Marais. The pair jumped clear in 50.753 seconds to take home top honors. Sponsored by AAA Equestrian, LLC, the class awarded The Cover Story Perpetual Trophy donated by Rolling Acres Farm. Yesterday's High Jr/AO winners Megan Nusz and Banana D'Ive Z finished in second in 52.163 seconds. Third place went to last year’s class winners Tracey Weinberg and Larone with a time of 52.553 seconds. Kelly explained that she used today's class to make sure that HH Narcos Du Marais was jumping well for tomorrow. "I planned on going at a good pace, but I really wanted him to get a nice clear round before the classic," she stated. "My main concern was getting across the back bars because he's so careful. He's so fast on the ground and his foot speed is so fast. He's different than any other horse I have ridden." This is Kelly's first time competing at the WIHS and she enjoyed the atmosphere. "It feels awesome to win here," she smiled. "I love that they do a prize giving for every class. It is usually just going and getting a ribbon at the in-gate, so it’s cool to go in and have a presentation." The jumper classes began earlier today with a $2,500 Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper speed class, sponsored by North Star. Samantha Schaefer, of Westminster, MD, earned victory aboard her own 12year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding Sugar Ray with a clean round in 50.728 seconds. Lillie Keenan and Firework, owned by Chansonette Farm LLC, jumped clear in 53.227 seconds for the reserve position. Gabrielle Stern and Anjelica finished third in 53.471 seconds. Schaefer and Sugar Ray were presented The Eleanor White O'Leary Memorial Perpetual Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Ashton Hill and Miss Linden Joan Hill.

Schaefer has owned Sugar Ray since 2009 and explained that she first showed him in the high juniors and small grand prix, but decided that he was best as a low horse. "I bought another horse to replace him because we knew that wasn't really where he belonged," she stated. "He is really amazing at this height. He's so fast and careful. As the other horse matured and was ready to do the height, (Sugar Ray) got to become the low horse; they switched roles." "He is so much fun," Schaefer smiled. "He is one of my favorite horses that I have ever had; he's so special. I've never had a horse that wants to win so badly. He knows the game and he is so experienced." The Washington International Horse Show continues tomorrow with the opening classes for the pony hunters, followed by the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic and the $10,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic. The jumper phase for the WIHS Equitation Finals will close out the afternoon session. The evening session begins at 7 p.m. with the WIHS Equitation Finals work-off with the top 10 riders, followed by a Caisson presentation, terrier races, Chester Weber driving exhibition, and the highlight class of the week, the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix presented by Washington Convention and Sports Authority, a World Cup qualifying event.

The WIHS Equitation Classic will continue tomorrow with all riders returning for the jumper phase. The hunter and jumper scores will then be averaged out to determine the top ten riders who will participate in the final work-off.

Averaging 220 events per year, the arena is home to three professional sports teams and one college team including the Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals, Washington Mystics and the Georgetown Hoyas. The arena also hosts a variety of concerts, family shows and world-class sporting events. “We have unique standing in the equestrian world, being the last great urban indoor horse show in the nation, and it is our goal to continue to ensure Washington is a ‘must-attend’ event for the equestrian world and the Washington, D.C. community,” said Juliet W. Reid, president of WIHS. WIHS highlights include the WIHS Equitation Championship Finals for the top junior riders in the country, Kids’ Day with free pony riders and activities for children, Barn Night, the Puissance high jump, and the $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix, where top horses and riders, including Olympic medalists, compete for the President of the United States Perpetual Cup, donated to the show in 1961 by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

WIHS Partners with Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian to Celebrate Horses Submitted by: WIHS Phone: Date Added: 8/30/2011

The Washington International is delighted to announce a new partnership with Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian to celebrate horses in Native American culture and equestrian sport throughout history.

The museum will open a major exhibition, "A Song for the Horse Nation," on Saturday, Oct. 29, at its flagship museum on the National Mall, just a short walk from the horse show. The exhibition explores the role horses have played in Native culture from the 1500s to the present.

The Washington International celebrates its 53rd year Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center in Washington, DC. Together, the two organizations will mark these occasions with free family programs on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at Verizon Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and all day Sunday, Oct. 30, at the museum.

A free shuttle service between the museum and Verizon Center will be provided by Reston Limousine on Saturday.

Activities include free pony rides at Verizon Center on Oct. 29 for WIHS Kids' Day, war-pony painting demonstrations by Crow equestrian and tribal general council member Kennard Real Bird, storytelling by award-winning children's book author and illustrator S.D. Nelson (Standing Rock Sioux), hands-on ledger-art lessons and much more at both locations.

"What better way for us to come together to illuminate our shared history and distinct cultures than through our mutual admiration for horses," said museum director Kevin Gover (Pawnee). "This unique collaboration celebrates the indomitable spirit not just of the Horse Nation, but of the whole nation. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Washington International Horse Show and know that the spectators at Verizon Center and the visitors to the museum will be, too."

"The Washington International Horse Show is honored to partner with the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, two great Washington institutions coming together to celebrate horses and equestrian sport," said Bridget Love Meehan, executive director, Washington International Horse Show. "Aligning our organization with one of the world's most recognized cultural institutions allows the Washington International Horse Show to share the drama, beauty and athleticism of world-class equestrian sport with millions of people worldwide and honor the significance of the horse throughout our nation's history."

The D.C. Mounted Police and Real Bird will present the U.S. and Crow Nation colors on horseback Saturday at 3 p.m. on the museum's Outdoor Welcome Plaza, while singer KJ Jacks (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma) performs the U.S. national anthem. Real Bird will also participate in the opening procession at the Washington International Horse Show Friday evening, Oct. 28, at Verizon Center. (A surprise, kid-friendly character will also provide lively updates via Twitter during the exhibition's run.)

The exhibition runs through Jan. 7, 2013.

The 53rd Annual Washington International Horse Show will run Oct. 25-30 at Verizon Center in Washington, DC. For more information, visit the WIHS official website.

Nick Skelton and Carlo 273 Capture Victory in $100,000 President’s Cup Grand Prix CSI 3*-W « Youngjumpers.com

Skelton and Carlo 273, a 10-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Contender, were the last to go clear in the opening round of 24 entries over a course designed by Michel Vaillancourt of Aiken, SC. First up in the jump-off was Davis on Nemo 119, a 12-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cambridge owned by Old Oak Farm. They had two rails to finish with eight faults in 39.74 seconds for third place. “I only brought one horse, so the days leading up to today were all in preparation for this class,” Davis said. “Being from California I have not shown indoors much and I haven’t really done any big indoor grand prix, so it was just kind of going in for experience and trying to do as well as I could.” Davis purchased Nemo 119 from Nick Skelton two years ago, and they had a stellar winter season, winning four grand prix events. She said of her horse, “He is very fun and very talented. A little quirky, but he has really taught me a lot, so I am really thankful for that.” Brianne Goutal and Nice de Prissey, a 10-year-old Selle Francais stallion by Rosire owned by Remarkable Farms LP, had an unfortunate rail for four faults in 43.00 seconds, but that would hold up for second place. Goutal commented, “I had a little bit of a rough week, so I almost didn’t show, but I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and try one more time. The plan was really just to finish and to finish as well as I could. My horse has been amazing all week and he was amazing tonight. I thought the course was really fair. Michel has been building great all week. My plan was literally just to cross both timers.” Margie Engle (USA) followed next on Indigo, an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding by Indoctro owned by Griese/Garber/Hidden Creek and Gladewinds. They dropped two rails for eight faults and with a slower time of 40.41 seconds, they would place fourth. Last to go, Skelton knew that he had to produce a clear jumping round for the win. He took some extra time, but it was enough for victory. He and Carlo 273 stopped the timers in 46.32 seconds with two time faults. “Actually I don’t like those jump offs when there are no clears and you have to go last,” Skelton admitted. “You can make a mistake. If they had all been clear, at least you can go in there and go faster, but when you are in that position you have to be careful. I prefer to have other clears, to have to go fast and attack. Also the time was very tight, so I got two time faults. It was a good class. The horse jumped great and I thought the course was fair for the amount of riders that were in it.” Skelton described Carlo as a “very talented horse.” He continued, “He is very careful. He has all the jump and he has a great mind. He really wants to do it, so that makes my life easier.” Skelton said that Carlo has not shown indoors for a couple of years, but didn’t have a problem coming to the WIHS. They have had a great year, Skelton said, “from Wellington to the European Championships.” They will continue on the

indoor circuit at the Alltech National Horse Show and the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. For their victory, Skelton and Carlo 273 were presented with the President of the United States Perpetual Cup. As Leading Jumper Rider, Skelton also won the Margaret Chovnick Memorial Trophy. Skelton was named the Leading International Rider as well. All three riders said they look forward to competing at the WIHS every year. Davis mentioned, “I have come for the past five years, and did the ponies and eq finals and juniors. It is really special for me because I have a lot of family in the city so they can come and watch. I also think that this year has been great as far as crowds. It was definitely much improved and I will definitely come back next year.” Skelton has been competing at the WIHS since the 80s, and noted, “We have a nice time when we’re here.” Goutal, who started showing at the WIHS in 1995 on ponies, explained, “It has always kind of been one of the peak stops in my year. It has always been a very important finals for us. It is a very patriotic event, and it is prestigious. I think they did an amazing job this year running the show. It has had a revamping in the past two years and it is really nice to see a big crowd come and support the show. They have been working really hard at getting the numbers up and they have really done it this year. It is just a great show to come to. I look forward to it every year.” The 2011 WIHS Equitation Classic Finals concluded this evening with a significant win for 18-year-old Chase Boggio, of Canton, GA. Boggio rode Massimo, his ten-year-old Holsteiner gelding by Cassini, through the first two phases of competition, finishing with a score of 85.33 in the hunter phase and an 89 point total in the jumper phase. Returning for the final work-off sitting in second place overall, Boggio’s ride aboard Elizabeth Benson’s mount Calito 7 scored an 87.83, giving him a three round total of 262.166 for the win. Boggio earned the victory over Hayley Barnhill, of Collierville, TN, who totaled 259.999 with scores of 87, 86.67, and 86.33. Barnhill rode Elizabeth MacWilliam’s Camora in the hunter/jumper rounds and then piloted Boggio’s mount Massimo in the final work-off. Third place went to Elizabeth Benson, of Whitehouse Station, NJ, with a three round total of 258.499. Benson rode Horizon Hill Farm LLC’s Calito 7 to scores of 87 and 90.33 in the first two rounds. Her ride in the final work-off aboard Sarah Milliren’s mount Vancouver, owned by Elvenstar Farm, scored an 81.17. Boggio was presented The WIHS Equitation Classic Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. G. Ralph Ours, III and was awarded a pair of custom chaps provided by Journeymen Saddlers, Ltd. Tonight’s victory was particularly exciting for the rider given that he had previously been in the top ten for this class three times before finally putting his name on the elite list of winners. He finished seventh in 2008, second in 2009, and eighth in 2010. Massimo was awarded The Lugano Memorial Trophy

donated by Stoney Hill as the winning horse of the night. In last year’s competition, Massimo helped put rider Lillie Keenan in the winner’s circle after she rode the big gray in the final work-off. This year he carried both the first and second place finishers through excellent rounds. Trainer Christina Schlusemeyer found the talented gelding in Europe two years ago and knew that he would be the perfect horse to guide Boggio to a national championship. “I purchased Massimo in November of 2009, and he has been amazing for me,” Boggio explained. “When I tried him in Europe he was very green and could not canter in a straight line. I told Christina he could never do the equitation, but she said ‘He’ll do it, just watch.’ He has just been so easy; he never does anything bad. Massimo truly is the deluxe equitation horse.” Commenting on his victory, Boggio smiled, “It means a lot to win here. I’ve been second in pretty much every big class that there is in the United States, so it feels good to finally win one.”” “I got very lucky,” he added. “I honestly think that it was fate because I got switched on to Calito, who I leased last year. He’s an amazing horse and it only took me three jumps to get to know him again. I was really happy with him, and Massimo of course.” Schlusemeyer proudly commented on Boggio’s success, declaring, “This is our happiest day to date. Chase is such a hard worker. He takes it seriously, and he should be a good example to all other equitation riders – if you want it, you can get it.” Second place finisher Hayley Barnhill spoke about her ride on Massimo, noting, “I was really happy with Chase’s horse. He’s a big strided horse and I thought he was great.” One of Barnhill’s trainers, Missy Clark, explained that her rider had an unexpected horse change right before this week’s competition. Barnhill got her top finish riding not just one, but two unknown horses – a true testament to her skill and composure in the show ring. “Hayley has never shown Camora, so she had two that she had never ridden before, but she was amazing,” Clark stated. “She rode like a true double national champion; she really rose to the occasion. We were graciously loaned Camora at the last minute, and you don’t see that generosity very often.” Judge Steve Wall remarked on the ability of the top two riders, acknowledging, “These two have always been near the top and today was their day; the cream rises to the top. There are riding styles in the two of them that are more polished and more finished.” Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers Compete in Classics The $10,000 Ambassador’s Cup High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic was sponsored by AAA Equestrian LLC, and it was Victoria Colvin who came away with the win on Waminka, owned by Rivers Edge. They were the only double clear in a jump-off of four entries. Olinda and Genevieve Zock were second, while Liza Finsness on Ormsby Hill was third.

Colvin was presented with yet another trophy in a week of incredible success for the 14-year-old rider from Loxahatchee, FL. For the classic, she won the Ambassador’s Cup Perpetual Trophy donated by Ambassador and Mrs. Marion H. Smoak. Colvin won the Grand Junior Hunter championship yesterday and was named Best Child Rider on a Horse. She said of her wins, “I’m excited. I think the best thing was Best Junior Rider. It meant a lot to me.” In the jump-off, Colvin wanted to attempt a tricky inside turn and knew her plan. “I think I had a good plan,” she agreed. “I watched the last class, so I got to see a lot do the jump-off. I was just going to try and do what they did. I did the inside turn. She hit it and it was almost on the ground. I thought if I was slow to the one jump, I thought she could make that turn.” Colvin started showing Waminka, an eight-year-old KWPN mare by Fedor, in the High Junior Jumpers this winter. She remarked, “She’s fun. She jumps so high! It’s cool to have won here (again).” The High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper champion was Banana d’Ive Z, ridden by Meagan Nusz. They were awarded the Greenberg Challenge Trophy donated by Mr. and Mrs. Hermen Greenberg. Waminka and Colvin were reserve champions. The Shalanno Style of Riding Award was given to Samantha Schaefer. In the $5,000 Senator’s Cup Low Junior/Amateur Jumper Classic sponsored by North Star, Michael Hughes of Allendale, NJ rode Drumnacross Farm Ltd.’s Red Hot to victory. They finished the jump-off double clear in 33.237 seconds for the win over Gabrielle Stern on Anjelica, who stopped the timers in 33.903 seconds for second place. Third place went to Sugar Ray and Samantha Schaefer, who had a clear round in 34.455 seconds. For their win, Hughes and Red Hot were presented with the Swan Lake Perpetual Trophy donated by Beagle Brook Farm in honor of the 1992 winner Swan Lake, ridden by Jennifer F. Miller. The Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Champion sponsored by North Star was Red Hot, ridden by Michael Hughes. Samantha Schaefer and Sugar Ray were the reserve champions. They won the Foxbrook Perpetual Trophy in honor of Space Citation donated by Joy Slater. Hughes has been riding Red Hot, a 13-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding by Indoctro, for two years. “He’s very red hot,” Hughes laughed. “He’s so much fun to ride and he’s such a great teacher in the jump-offs because he’s so fast.” Hughes said of the class, “The course was very difficult; I didn’t think there was going to be as many clear as there was, but there were so many good horses and riders in the class. I kept the same pace the whole way around. I never really slowed down. He is very careful, you just have to watch the last couple of jumps.” The Washington International Horse Show concludes tomorrow with a day full of pony competition as well as the
