Ellen Toon and Invincible Score Championship at Bainbridge Companies WEF Week Four

Wellington, FL - February 3, 2009 - It was another good week for JT Farm at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, FL. JT Farm, led by trainer Jimmy Toon, is based in South Salem, NY, and Wellington, FL.

This week, it was Ellen Toon and her very successful mount Invincible who brought home the championship. They won in the Amateur-Owner Over 35 Hunter division, a division in which they dominated last year and won the WEF Circuit Championship.

Toon and Invincible finished with two first place ribbons on the first day, including a win in the handy hunter class. They added a second and a seventh for the tricolor. "He was very good on the first day, and just a hard rub in the second class on the second day," Toon explained.

Despite the cool and windy weather, the nine-year-old veteran campaigner was a solid performer. "He just does his job," Toon said. "He doesn't look for excuses. We didn't prepare him any differently; he's just easy."

Toon and her husband, along with trainer Rodney Bross, have made a good plan for her to compete with her two top horses, Invincible and Attache. "I think riding two horses helps my riding, but it is nice to be able to ride one a week and have the other rest," Toon explained.

Toon will show Attache, who earned top ribbons in week three, during week five of WEF, while both horses will compete in the highlight hunter show the following week.

Other JT Farm riders were also successful. Silas V, owned by Brianne Link, finished second and third in the Non-Thoroughbred 3'3" Hunters with Jimmy Toon. With Link, he won in the Children's Hunter 14 & Under division. Link rode her pony Tallyman to second, fourth, and eighth place ribbons in the Pony Jumpers. Link and Tallyman also had two fourth place finishes during week three, and Link was fourth in the THIS National Children's Medal.

In the equitation ring, Carolyn Lichtenberg rode JT Farm's I-Toon to eighth place in the ASPCA Maclay class. Taylor Kain, who finished third last week in the USEF Medal class with JT Farm's Cayero, had a new mount this week. She rode Charlie Brown, another JT Farm horse, to eighth place in the WIHS hunter phase. This was Charlie Brown's first time competing in the equitation divisions. Both horses are offered for sale as top equitation mounts.

At JT Farm, riders of all levels are welcome and are afforded the very best training by a staff of experienced, caring professionals who are committed to excellence in the show ring in equitation, hunters and jumpers.
