Country Classic 2011 Results!

Leslie and Jeff - broken hands

After a successful showing at the Country Classic Preview, Oz remained consistent at the Country Classic, with the barn receiving multiple championships and awards – so consistent, in fact, that Jeff and Leslie shared the same injury.  They both broke their left hand on the same jump. Statistically not very likely.  They should have bought lottery tickets.

 Champions in the jumper divisions included Wiberra and Madison Cameron in the Medium Junior Amateur, as well as Kantos and Kimberly Bruce in the Low Adult. Chanel and Ali Majer were Reserve Champions in the High Children’s Jumper.  

 Oz domination was fully shown in the hunters and equitation. Shelley Campf was Champion in both the Baby Green and 4&5 Year Old with Perseverance, and Reserve Champion in the same divisions on Mon Avis. Rendition and Lexie Grant were Champions in the Children’s Hunter, while Legatus and Madison Cameron won the tri-color in the Equitation 16-17. The championships continued with Perseverance and Diane Laycoe in the Pre-Adult, Night Song and Tara Niculescu in the Pre-Green 3’3”, Mon Avis and Shelley Campf in the Pre-Green 3’, and Adriana and Tara Niculescu in the Training Hunter 2’6”. Oz swept the Junior Hunter 16-17, with Greyscale and Maggie Dennis winning the Championship and Pendleton and Paige Hamilton taking home Reserve.

 Individual class winners were also abundant at the Country Classic. Shelley Campf won a First Year Green class on both Rendition and Encore, while Jeff Campf received the blue in the First Year Green under saddle aboard Exposure. Legatus and Madison Cameron were first in a Junior Working Hunter class, and Voila and Avery Worthington won the division’s under saddle class. Adriana and Jane Hood won the Long Stirrup under saddle, and Adriana and Tara Niculescu also won the Schooling Hunter 3’.

 Legatus and Madison Cameron won yet another USET, and Hologram and Maggie Dennis took home 6th in the class. Paige Hamilton was 3rdin the Pessoa, while Avery Worthington received 4th. Avery Worthington and Trick also won the OHJA Junior/Senior Medal.  Madison Cameron and Legatus won top billing in the $1,000 Hunter Handy Classic, followed by Greyscale and Maggie Dennis in 3rd, Exposure and Shelley Campf in 5th, and Pendleton and Tara Niculescu in 7th. Shelley Campf took home 4th on Black Pearl and 7thon Snow Patrol in the $2,500 National Hunter Derby. Despite the POURING rain on Sunday, and suffering from a broken hand, Kantos and Jeff Campf were 4thin the Mini Prix, followed by Musketeer and Kaylee Cox in 6th.

 Madison Cameron was awarded the Best Child Rider award. This award is awarded to the junior rider that the judges subjectively choose to be the most consistently successful junior rider at the show.

 What a great week of competing. Congratulations to all of the Ozlings!

Country Classic Preview – Results

Zizi, Bryan and Kate

The Country Classic Preview was very low key and really fun. We are pleased to say that Oz horses and riders were showing their typical winning ways.  

In the hunter ring, Championships were awarded to Exposure in the First Year Green, Perseverance in the Baby Green and Greyscale with Maggie Dennis in the Junior/AO Hunters.  Reserve Champions included Encore in the First Year Green, Voila in the Performance Working Hunter 3’6 and Adriana in the Training Hunter 2’6.  Diane Laycoe and Perseverance won the under saddle and an over fence class in the Pre Adult division on her new horse.  Shelley won two Pre Green classes – one on Mon Avis and one on Perseverance and Tara won a Performance Hunter 3’6” class on Pendleton.

 In the USHJA National Hunter Classic, Madison and Legatus Finished 4th, Black Pearl and Shelley 5th, and Maggie and Greyscale came in 6th. In the first ever Local Hunter Derby, Kimberley Bruce rode Black Pearl to a second place finish with a sensational handy round.

Oz rose to the top of the equitation divisions with Korina Winkler receiving the tri-colors in the Long Stirrup Equitation, Madison Cameron earning the Championship  in the 16-17 Equitation and Maggie Dennis finishing as the Reserve Champion 16-17. The battle of the girls reversed itself in the OHJA medal where Maggie came out victorious and Madison placed second.

The Jumper side of the field never lets us down.  Lenamore Cavalier was Champion in the .85m and Musketeer and Kaylee Cox were Champions in the Modified Junior/ Amateurs. Chanel and Ali Majer were Reserve Champion in the High Children’s Jumpers, Kantos and Kimberley Bruce were Reserve Champions in the Low Adult Jumpers and Tami Majer’s entry, Cartiano Z, was Reserve Champion in the Young Jumper division with Jeff. Kantos and Kimberley also won in the .95m and Apache Joe won a class in the 1.20m.

Jeff and Kantos topped the field in the Team NW 1.15m Mini Prix  and are leading the standings to win the golf cart.  The $10,000 Team NW Jumper Classic was a great class with Jeff and Apache Joe finishing second and Madison and Wiberra finishing third.

Congratulations to everyone – we are proud to have you on our team!!

Early Summer Classic 2011 recap

Interesting classes, a great exhibitor party and sun weren’t the only things that made Early Summer Classic enjoyable! Oz’s results continue to speak for themselves as Ozlings rise to the top of their respective divisions.

In the jumper ring, Jeff was Champion Open Jumper with Cartiano Z and Reserve Champion 1.10m jumper with Kantos, while Leslie Cox and Lenamore Cavalier were Reserve Champions in the .85m jumpers. Hunters were also successful: Perseverance, Diane Laycoe’s new horse, was Champion with Shelley in the 4 and 5 year olds.  Exposure and Zizi were Champions in the Adult Hunter 50 & over division. Mon Avis, the new horse of Lauren Worland’s from Triple Rise, was Baby Green Hunter champion with Shelley. Rendition was Champion in the First Year Green Hunters with Shelley as well as in the Children’s Hunters with Lexie, and Legatus and Madison were Reserve Champions in the Junior Hunter 16-17 division. Last, but not least, Korina Winkler and Black Pearl were Reserve Champions in the Long Stirrup Equitation.

            There were also several individual class winners worth recognition. Cartiano Z and Jeff won the Open Welcome 1.40 m class.  This was Carter’s first time at the 1.40m level and he made a fantastic showing.  Apache Joe won in the 7&8 year old jumper division, Lenamore Cavalier and Leslie Cox won two classes in the .85m Jumpers, Chanel and Alexandra Majer won in the High Children’s Jumpers, Contendra and Jeff won in the 1.20m, Locaro Z and Bryan Laycoe won in the Adult Hunter 50 and Over and Night Song and Tara Niculescu won in the Pre-Green 3’3” Hunter division. In addition, Alexandra Ulmer won in the 15 and Under Equitation, Legatus and Shelley won a High Performance Hunter class, Snow Patrol won in his Large Hunter under saddle and Adam 12 and Alexandra Zell won the Schooling Hunter.

            The Early Summer Classic hosted multiple special classes such as the Team NW Jumper Classic, the Mini Prix, The DA Davidsion and Cameron Family Jr/Ao Classic, the USHJA International Hunter Derby, a WCHR Handy Hunter Classic and the National Hunter Classic. Probably the biggest win came with Greyscale and Maggie Dennis who won the $1,000 WCHR Handy Hunter Classic in addition to a 5th place finish in the International Hunter Derby.  In the 1.20 Mini Prix, Jeff and Kantos were 4th and Kaylee and Musketeer finished 5th. In the $20,000 Team NW Jumper Classic Jeff was 8th and 9th with Cartiano Z and Apache Joe. Madison Cameron and Wiberra placed 3rd in the Junior/AO Jumper Classic, while Sam Ortman and Contendra earned 5th. Shelley and Black Pearl were 2nd in the National Hunter Classic.

Overall, the Early Summer Classic was a perfect beginning of summer and a fantastic show for Oz. Congratulation to everyone on their great results!

Saturday evening was the traditional Progressive Aisle Party and this year there was a carnival too. Dave Majer, the BBQ Master, made delicious chicken wings in the Oz aisle.  Thank you Dave – you singlehandedly made the Progressive Aisle party the best ever!  The clowns, great weather, super competition, 200 happy people, and a VERY popular OHJA fundraising Dunk-Tank certainly helped too!

Oregon Trail 2011 Results

The horses at OZ are enjoying a few days of turnout while we get the laundry done from the last two weeks of competing in Wilsonville. I want to thank all of you who act as such outstanding ambassadors of OZ, for your assistance in so many capacities during these events, and for representing Oregon with class. Thanks to Shelley, Hunter Creek had a major facelift this season with an inspired new layout. There were also fantastic displays and awards, compliments of Tara, as well as a host of improvements from the beautiful new jumps to the new and immensely popular hunter derbies.

I would like to make mention of the Champions and Reserve Champions from the Oregon Trail:

Jumper Champions included Musketeer in the 1.10 m and Carter in the 1.15m, while Jumper Reserve Championship honors went to Sam Ortman and Contendra in the 1.20m and to Ali Majer and Chanel in the High Children’s. Oz also dominated the Mini Prix with a big win for me and Kantos!  Kaylee Cox and Musketeer were second and Mary Masterson and Glory were third. Carter and I also made our ‘Big Class’ debut and had an excellent clean first round.  We ultimately finished 6th.

 In the equitation, Oz made a CLEAN SWEEP of the divisions. Zizi Zell was Champion in the Adult Equitation, Alexandra Ulmer was Champion in the 15 & Under division, Maggie Dennis was Champion 16-17 Equitation, and Madison Cameron was Reserve Champion 16-17 Equitation. Great riding ladies.

 The hunters were not to be denied either. Exposure was Champion in the First Year Green, Swagger was Reserve, and Snow Patrol was Champion in the Large Hunters.  Greyscale and Maggie Dennis were Champion in the Junior Hunters 16-17 and Exposure and Alexandra Zell were Champion in the Adult Hunters. Shelley rode Mike and Mollie Gallaway’s Wait and See to the Reserve Championship in the Baby Green Hunters. The National Hunter Classic was great. Pendleton and Swagger were second and third respectively with Tara, and Exposure finished fourth with Shelley.

 Individual class winners included Page Hamilton and Pendleton in the junior hunters, Leslie Cox and Lenamore Cavalier in the .95m jumpers and Madison Cameron continues her dominance in the USET. You can find all of the results on
