blueaKent Farrington and Blue Angel. Photo by Phelps Media Group.The Town Branch Bourbon $50,000 International Open Jumper Speed took center stage Friday evening,where the first section of the class proved to be the best of the day. Candice King, of Wellington, FL, was the first to show over Conrad Homfeld's winding speed class aboard Quality Stud's Antigone Quality. Despite the pressure of being the pathfinders, King and Antigone Quality were perfect over each fence and set the time to beat at 60.07 seconds.

 

Belgium's Nicola Philippaerts was next in the Alltech Arena with Frans Lens' Carlito C, and they made sure King did not hold on to the lead for too long when they also managed to navigate the track with ease, leaving each rail intact and breaking the beam at 58.95 seconds.

That is exactly what happened during the Double H Farm $100,000 International Open Jumpers at the Alltech National Horse Show. Todd Minikus was aiming for his second win in a row with Quality Girl, completing a clear jump-off effort, when Belgium's Francois Mathy was faultless during the 14-horse jump-off aboard Polinska Des Isles, crossing the finish line a fraction of a second faster to capture the winning honors.

The WoSJ show review – Catherine Pasmore on the Washington International Horse Show

Photo by Alden Corrigan/EquestrianLife.com.In our third show review of the season, US’ Catherine Pasmore writes about her experiences at the Washington International Horse Show last weekend. And as Catherine discovered; the love for the sport came alive in the heart of D.C!

 

“I arrived at Washington having no idea what to expect. I live in Virginia, only about 3 hours away, but surprisingly I had never had the opportunity to compete at this iconic American show before.

 

I drove past the White House, Washington Monument, and several other government buildings on the way to the hotel. After checking in, I didn’t need to ask for directions to the show. You couldn’t miss the Verizon Center. The big screens hanging outside the building had pictures and videos of the horse show from years past. The outside stabling was secured with a wire fence around it, also providing a billboard of posters to promote the show. A very unusual, yet impressive, sight to see in downtown Washington D.C., even for the frequent horse-shower such as myself!
