Thieme Owns The Night In The Great American $1 Million Grand Prix

Ocala, Fla.—March 24   

Just after the thud of the rail echoed through the stadium, an excited “Whoop!” of joy followed.

“Oops, was I too loud?” Andre Thieme said sheepishly in the press conference of his in-gate celebration. He can be forgiven—that rail thudding meant he just won $350,000. “It’s a big difference between first and second, so I was maybe a little too loud, but I was very excited,” Thieme admitted.

Maher Flies In To Win At $50,000 Live Oak Grand Prix CSI-W

Ben Maher’s a busy man, jetting back and forth across Florida to jump in two grand prix classes within eight hours.

We had to interview him via speakerphone after his win in the $50,000 Live Oak Grand Prix CSI-W in Ocala, Fla., because he was racing to catch a plane to fly back to Wellington, Fla., to ride in the grand prix at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival. (He ended up fifth in that class with Urico after a rail in the jump-off.)

Maher Does Just Enough To Win $150,000 CSIO**** Grand Prix At WEF 8

“I tried to ride the jump-off that I could do, not one that I couldn’t do,” Ben Maher said.

Sure, his time on Urico was quick. But it certainly wasn’t unbeatable. Kent Farrington was more than 2 seconds faster on Blue Angel, but he pulled a rail. Beezie Madden was fractions of a second faster, but also picked up 4 faults.

Going Avant Garde In The Junior Nations Cups

The young riders competing in the Hollow Creek Young Rider, Junior and Children's Nations Cups brought not only a few different riding styles to Wellington, Fla., but also a new persepctive on in-the-ring fashion.

U.S. Young Riders Cap The Nations Cup Night

There was no stopping them. An irrepressible tide of parents, friends, and other supporters swept into the ring for the awards ceremony of the Hollow Creek Farm Children’s Nations Cup. Cell phone cameras working overtime, they took over. Hugs, tears, kisses were non-stop. It was the best awards ceremony I’ve ever seen.

Awards ceremonies are usually pretty staid, boring affairs. Step up on podium, smile awkwardly at the gaggle of photographers pointed at you. Rinse, repeat.
