Keenan Rules In The Equitation Ring

Wellington, Fla.—March 22

What do you get when you take the best 29 riders at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival, whisk away their trainers, and make them prepare for and ride over a championship course on their own? Plenty of top rounds, and astronomical scores to boot.

Winner Lillie Keenan earned a raw score of 96 in the George Morris Excellence In Equitation Championship, as did third-placed Gabrielle Bausano. Michael Hughes (second) and Megan MacPherson (fourth) both earned marks of 94.

Humor Is Don Stewart’s Secret Ingredient

If you’re going to get anywhere near Don Stewart, be warned: The man’s about to make fun of you.

Don’t worry. He’s an equal opportunity tease, and he saves his sharpest barbs for himself. Take his comment to one of his riders after the ASPCA Maclay Region 3 qualifier. That rider forgot the final fence in the test at the competition, and Stewart reacted by telling the rider (and her mother) “I was so excited. Then your mother’s genes kicked in.”

Benson Is Best In WIHS Jumper Phase

Washington, D.C.—Oct. 29

Elizabeth Benson could only improve her hunter phase placing by moving up one spot, so she did just that. Finishing yesterday’s hunter phase of the Washington International Equitation Classic in second place, Benson, 17, entered the ring this afternoon after seeing 33 of her competitors tackle the jumper course set by Michel Vaillancourt, as the riders returned in reverse order. Her scores of 92, 91.5 and 87.5 gave her the round’s highest score of 90.33, and she sits in the top spot going into tonight’s work-off phase.

Casady Clinches First Round Of WIHS Equitation Classic

Oct. 28—Washington, D.C.

Shawn Casady only needed to see seven riders go before him to know exactly what he needed to do to win the hunter round of the Washington International Horse Show Equitation Classic. The 17-year-old rider from Midtown, Tenn., posted the highest scores of the day aboard Worlds Fair. His average mark of 87.66 sits just ahead of Elizabeth Benson (87). Last year's ASPCA Maclay Finals and Pessoa/USEF Medal Finals winner, Hayley Barnhill, earned an identical mark as Benson, but the tie-breaking procedures technically have her third.
