Banderas Banks A Big Win At Menlo

Menlo Park, Calif.—Aug. 8

Last year Nick Haness left the Menlo Charity Horse Show with a red ribbon from the biggest hunter class of the competition, and an itch to come back and do even better. So he came back this year and made it happen.

He tacked up Ecole Lathrop’s Banderas to jump to the top of the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby and edge out last year’s winners, Hope Glynn and Kings Peak. Junior Halie Robinson galloped up the standings on Captiva to take third.
