Clean at Culpeper


IMG_2544HITS Culpeper has been a great success!  Many horses have moved up, riders have had great results on new horses, and horses with varying degrees of time off are soaring to new heights in the Grand Prix arena.  Every horse had at least one clean round and a ribbon this week!  Here are the results thus far:

Roulette (Spencer Lampert) and Debbie McCarthy – 3rd in the $15,000 Brook Ledge Open Jumper Prix and 8th in the $5,000 Open Jumper Welcome.  We are so pleased to see the leading team of the show string back in action.

Zim (Connor & Ebetino Jumpers) showed by Debbie McCarthy – 6th in the $2,500 1.40 mm Open Speed Jumpers, as well as 2nd and 6th in the $1,000 Level 6 Jumpers (1.30 mm).  We are loving the consistent progression of this horse’s scope and willingness to jump higher and higher!

Cassita 10 (Connor & Ebetino Jumpers and Phoenix) showed by Debbie McCarthy – Reserve Champion in the $500 Level 5 Jumpers (1.20 mm) winning 2nd, 3rd and 5th throughout the week.  We are so excited to see this horse prevail and move up levels!

Crespo (McCarthy Horse Ventures) showed by Debbie McCarthy –  3rd and 4th in the $500 Level 5 Jumpers (1.20 mm).  “The Tank”, one of the younger horses on Debbie’s string, continues to WOW us with his speed and willingness to jump.
