Deeridge Farms Starts New Year Off with Success at CN Winter Equestrian Festival

Wellington, FL - January 23, 2008 - Deeridge Farms had a great start to 2008 at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Florida. Many Jacobs family members competed, and one of the most successful was Grace Robinson, who finished as reserve champion in the Children's Pony Large Hunters on Redwood Forest.

Robinson and Redwood Forest were first, second, and eighth over fences for the reserve championship in the division. Robinson also competed in the Small/Medium division on two ponies. She was third on Hillcrest Country Lady and picked up a first, fourth, and seventh over fences plus a fourth under saddle on Razzle Dazzle.

In the jumper ring, Lou Jacobs of East Aurora, NY, took the top prize in the $1,500 High Amateur-Owner Jumper Power and Speed class on Kachina. Kachina ended up tied for the reserve championship in the division. In the medium division, he rode Caucalis to first place in the $1,500 time first jump-off class.

This was Lou Jacobs' first time showing since the National Horse Show. He praised the footing in the International Arena and said he was happy to be back down in Florida competing.

Charlie Jacobs and his two mounts had consistent ribbons last week. He and Pia were third in the High A-O Jumper Power and Speed class and fifth in the $15,000 classic. Pia placed 12th in the $25,000 Speed Derby. On Midnight Lady, he finished fourth in the power and speed and eighth in the classic.

Deeridge Farms will compete next week at the second installment of the CN Winter Equestrian Festival.
