Despite the rainy conditions over the weekend during WEF Week 3, the Finally Farm horses and riders shined brightly, January 23-27 in Wellington, Florida.
Bridget Hallman had a banner week with her horses, claiming a championships in the Adult Amateur Middle section aboard Who’s It. She guided the 9-year-old Selle Francais to victories in both over fences classes and second in the under saddle for a commanding win.
In addition, Bridget piloted Halston to two third places over fences in the same section. The 7-year-old Holsteiner also earned excellent ribbons in the Green Conformation section with trainer Liza Boyd in the irons earlier in the week.
Liza rode Maggie Hill’s Tradition to championship honors in the High Performance Working Hunters, including an impressive win in the Handy Hunter class. Maggie continued her own tricolor streak this week, earning the 3’6” Large Junior Hunter, 16-17 championship aboard Tradition, as well. Her Junior Hunters O’Ryan and Cassanto, tricolor winners in the previous two weeks, took some time off, and Tradition stepped right up to fill their shoes.
Libbie Gordon and Vistano’s consistency paid off in the 3’6” Small Junior Hunters, as they earned a reserve championship with top ribbons in most every class. In addition, Libbie rode Tybee to impressive ribbons in the 3’6” Large Junior Hunters.
“We added a new gentle giant to our barn,” said Libbie’s mother, Susanne, of the fancy chestnut Tybee.
