The Team NW Equestrian Sports Spring Hunter Jumper Show was attended by only a few Oz horses and riders but nevertheless, we had a great show.
Toutle River Stable’s new horse Swagger was the star of the show. Tara Niculescu piloted him to wins in the Performance Hunter 3′6″ as well as taking home the Championship for the Green Working Hunter division. Vivian Keller rode Swagger to the Championship in the Junior Hunter Division and rode him for her equitation classes as well. Vivian was Champion Junior/Amateur Equitation 3′3″ and won the prestigious USEF Medal.
Erica Hass’ horse, Night Song, was Champion Pre Green Hunter with Tara Niculescu in the tack. He also made his debut with Erica in the Adult Hunter division. This is a promising pair.
Kimberly Bruce had never competed in the jumper ring before, but made a stellar debut on her horse Kantos. She was awesome and astoundingly consistent. The pair finished with a Championship in the 0.75m and a Reserve Championship in the Low Adult Jumpers. This competitive pair is a force to be reckoned with.
Maggie Dennis’ new horse, Hologram, came to the show for a few days. Jeff Campf rode him to victory in the 1.30 m class while Maggie finished 2nd in the USEF medal to her stablemate Vivian Keller.
