Finally Farm is proud to announce that Brunello has been named the 2013 USEF National Horse of the Year!
Liza Boyd and Brunello were both honored during the 2013 USEF Annual Meeting, January 10-11 in Lexington, Kentucky.
Brunello, co-owned by Liza and Janet Peterson, earned one of the coveted USEF Horse of Honor titles, and he was celebrated with a video presentation during the USEF Annual Meeting before being named National Horse of the Year.
Liza received the USEF Emerson Burr Trophy on January 10 for her success in the Hunter ring. The Emerson Burr Trophy is presented to a rider in the hunter divisions in any breed over fences.
With longtime partner Brunello, Liza scored her biggest career victory when she topped a star-studded field in the 2013 USHJA International Hunter Derby Championships. This was the pair's fifth International Hunter Derby win in as many months after topping fields in the Camden Spring International Hunter Derby, the Atlanta Spring International Hunter Derby, the Atlanta Summer International Hunter Derby, and the BRCHS International Hunter Derby.
Brunello's record in Hunter competition is impressive, from the International Hunter Derby competitions to the High Performance Hunter section where he shows his scope and athleticism. Brunello currently stands second in the USHJA International Hunter Derby Lifetime Money-Won Standings with $151,346.
