SARATOGA SPRINGS HORSE SHOW I
North Run Riders excel in first show of the spring.
Despite some soggy weather, North Run riders excelled during the first week of the Saratoga Springs Horse Shows in Saratoga Springs, New York. Charlotte Jacobs dominated the Junior/AO Jumper Divisions. She was champion in the Low Division with Robin and in the High Division with Cyrina Z and Kachina. Charlotte and Kachina won the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Classic and Catherine Tyree and Wetter placed second. Paulena Johnson and Marlo won a class in the High Junior/AO Jumper Division as well. Charlotte then went on to place fourth and fifth in the $25,000 Saratoga Cup Grand Prix, on Karonda V. Schl’Hof CH and Cyrina Z, respectively. Darragh Kenny finished sixth and eighth in the Grand Prix on Bazooka de Muze and Wannahave, while Paulena Johnson and Marlo were seventh and Catherine Tyree and Udento VDL placed ninth.
In the hunter ring, Charlotte and Bring It On captured the Large Junior Hunter Championship. Other hunter class winners included Lauren Tyree and Venice, Catherine Tyree and Rico, Darragh Kenny and Bring It On, and Krietta Phillips and Catnap. Multiple North Run riders scored big wins in the Equitation Division. Lauren Tyree and Salt Lake won the USEF Show Jumping Talent Search. Charlotte and Freedom won the USEF Hunter Seat Medal and the prestigious Governor’s Cup. Diederique van der Knaap and Asparagus topped the WIHS Hunter Phase, and Catherine Tyree and Patrick won the PHA Medal Class. Adeline Audette and Cortes 7 and Caleigh Thompson and Federer won sections of the Open Equitation.
We would also like to commend Charlotte Jacobs on her decision to donate all of her prize money for the remainder of 2012 to Danny and Ron’s Rescue, a cause so important to all of us at North Run!
