Deeridge Farm Wins Two Tricolor Ribbons at WEF's Kilkenny Internationale Horse Show

Wellington, FL – February 20, 2007 – The Jacobs family added more ribbons to their collection this week when they competed at the fourth week of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).

Lou Jacobs rode multiple mounts in the jumpers to top ribbons. In the $2,500 High Amateur-Owner Jumper Time First Round class, he won with Caucalis and was second on Kachina.

Caucalis, an 18-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion by Indoctro, has had a long and successful career. His win this week showed he still has his great style. "What’s nice about him is that he doesn’t have to go death-defyingly fast," Jacobs pointed out. "He has a great big stride and leaves out strides in a real smooth way. That helps him win."

In the Medium A-O Jumpers, Jacobs and Soleil were second in the $1,500 Time First Round class. They finished third in the $10,000 Classic. These top ribbons gave them the reserve championship in the division.

Soleil, an eight-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare, has been with Deeridge Farm for two years and has made her way up from the Low to the Medium A-O Jumpers. Jacobs noted, "When I do my part, she’s very competitive." He hopes to move Soleil up the High division next year. "She’s my hope for future," he added.

"Caucalis and Soleil are both favorites of mine," Jacobs said. "They’re two different extremes in type, but it makes it easy and fun to compete when you have horses like these."

Charlotte Jacobs had success of her own this weekend in the Large Pony Hunters. She rode Hillcrest Penniewise to the reserve championship in the division. They were first, second and third over fences. This was Hillcrest Penniewise’s first show at WEF this year and Charlotte’s first year showing in the Large Pony Hunter division. In addition to the pony hunters, Jacobs piloted Verona in the Show Circuit Magazine Children’s Medal class.

Jacobs remarked that she was nervous on the first day of showing, but by Sunday, Hillcrest Penniewise "was perfect."

"I was happy with my riding," Jacobs said. "It was exciting to win because I didn’t think I was going to be that good. It was cold, and it was his first week back. For this week, my goal is to do well in the Pony Hunter Classic, and I hope to do the same or better in the pony classes."

The hunters of Deeridge Farm will compete this week at the Bainbridge Florida Classic/WCHR Spectacular at the Winter Equestrian Festival on February 21-25, 2007, and the jumpers return the following week for the Zada Enterprises LLC Wellington Masters on February 27-March 4, 2007.
