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.

Scott Stewart Breaks Clavicle

Top hunter rider Scott Stewart broke his clavicle on July 3 while showing in a pre-green hunter class at Horse Shows By The Bay I in Traverse City, Mich.

“The horse jumped into the line fine, and he just tripped, buckled and went to his knees, and rolled into the dirt on my left clavicle,” said Stewart, Flemington, N.J. “The footing was good; it was just a freak thing. The horse is fine.”

Fabled Earns A Fairytale Win

Mumford, N.Y.—June 8

Larry Glefke didn’t send six horses to the Genesee Country Village and Museum for today’s $35,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby just for fun, especially since he had his hands full the day before two states away at the $20,000 class at the Upperville Horse Show.

Mindful Makes It Happen On Derby Day

Devon, Pa.—May 29

Kelley Farmer may only have shown Mindful three times, but that hasn’t stopped them from positively trouncing the field at Devon. And everyone on the show grounds is sitting up and taking notice.

Yesterday they won the high performance hunter championship, and today the pair topped today’s $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby over Hayley Barnhill and her new partner Airport 48, with three-time class winner Jennifer Alfano taking third on Maggie May.
