National Horse Show – New York

We had a great time in Syracuse for the National Horse Show.  The stabling was much better this year as it was underneath the arena.  The weather was chilly but a good time was had by all.  This photo is (from l to r) of Maggie Dennis, Madison Cameron, Shelley Campf, and Colleen Biemer.

The World Champion Hunter Rider Program is the premier awards program for hunters and hunter riders both nationally and regionally. Results are tabulated from results in a riders best four WCHR shows – important because horses and riders do not need to “over show” to be victorious.

Once again, Oz is proud to announce fantastic results for the 2010 season.  The Regional Awards are final awards and will remain as posted.  Unfortunately, the National Awards will be adjusted after the Capitol Challenge Horse Show which is the final event for the year.  Anyone not attending the Capitol Challenge Horse Show in Upper Marlboro, Maryland will not hold their position in the National Standings.  Since none of our riders will be making the trip east this fall, we wanted to recognize their positions in the national standings leading into the final show.

NW Autumn Finals – Results

The NW Autumn Finals in Monroe, Washington was a nice event. The WSHJA  made significant changes to the show that improved it greatly.

Greyscale had a fantastic week.  He stated off the week winning the Championship in the Green Conformation and winning the Zone 9 Green Conformation Finals with Shelley Campf aboard. He finished the week winning the Handy Hunter class in the Large Junior Hunters 16-17 with Maggie Dennis. Maggie also finished 9th in the ASPCA Maclay Regionals and won the USHJA Zone 9 Medal Finals. Nice work Maggie!

Legatus was a big winner as well with Championships in the Regular Working with Shelley and in the Large Junior 16-17 with Madison Cameron. Madison was second in the ASPCA Maclay Regionals and fourth in the USHJA Zone 9 Medal Finals.

London was terrific and was dubbed “the family horse”.  He started the week winning the 1.30m with Shelley aboard and finished the week winning the Grand Prix with Jeff Campf. The Grand Prix was a very fast class so he definately had the right rider atop!

Lastly, Shelley was awarded the Leading Hunter Rider for the show. Shelley was the Leading Hunter Rider and Jeff won the Grand Prix – they make a great team!
