Blush and Katie Robinson of Deeridge Farm Repeat Championship Performance

Charlotte Jacobs Wins First Show Circuit Magazine Children’s Medal Class

Wellington, FL – February 6, 2007 – As last week’s Nutrena/Western Hay Wellington Classic Horse Show at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), riders from Deeridge Farm had a successful week. Katie Robinson and Blush duplicated their tricolor performance in the Amateur-Owner Over 35 Hunter division.

Blush jumped to the win in both classes on Friday and received a third and a sixth on Saturday for the championship.

Robinson bought Blush a year and a half ago, and this is the first time that she has shown two weeks in a row with the big bay mare. "It was kind of fun that she was so consistent," Robinson considered. Blush knows when it’s show time and when to perform. "I have four kids, so I never get to ride," Robinson explained. "To be able to fly in on Friday night, hop on and go in there is great. She’s just that type of horse."

Robinson will give Blush and her other top amateur horse Pienvotti a couple of weeks off from showing and resume later on in the WEF series.

Eleven year old Charlotte Jacobs of East Aurora, NY, had a very good weekend in the equitation ring. Jacobs and Verona, owned by Morgan Hale, won the Equitation 11 & Under flat class and the Show Circuit Magazine Children’s Medal. The medal class had 56 entries and the top eight were called back for testing. Jacobs won her section of the class after the test. It was her first time competing in the class.

Jacobs also piloted Verona in the Children’s 14 & Under Hunters, where they placed fourth in two over fences classes out of 44 entries. Jacobs’ mother Joan commented, "She decided to ride in the hunters for practice and ended up having two beautiful trips."

Joan had success of her own with her new eight year old Dutch Warmblood jumper, Boyke 2. The pair was eighth in the $10,000 Adult Jumper Classic. "I’m just getting to know him," Jacobs said. "He’s young, but is a really great horse. He’s figuring out his front end right now." Jacobs plans to move up to the Modified Adult Jumpers and eventually compete in the Low Amateur-Owner Jumpers by the end of the WEF circuit.

Joan’s husband Louis had top prizes of his own. On Kachina, he placed fourth in the $2,500 High Amateur-Owner Jumper Power and Speed Class. He and Soleil were third in the $1,500 Medium Amateur-Owner Jumpers.

Louis’ brother Charlie picked up a solid fifth place in the highly competitive $10,000 High Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic.

Melissa Jacobs and Jouet finished third and fifth in the Children’s 14 & Under Hunter division.

The jumper riders of Deeridge Farm will compete this week in the Palm Beach Equine Clinic/Adequan Gold Coast Jumper Classic, while the hunters resume competition on February 14-18, the Kilkenny Internationale.
