By Bobbi Rottman

WELLINGTON, Fla., Feb.1--Equitation riders kicked off week three Friday at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival presented by Zimmerman Advertising, at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center with the Platinum Performance USEF Show Jumping Talent Search. The class was split into Section A and B due to the number of competitors, each class was pinned separately.

The rider to execute the course the best for Section A was 17-year-old Kimberly McCormack of Clermont, N.J. and her 11-year-old Oldenburg gelding, Sundance. A student of Missy Clark and North Run out of Warren, Vt., Kimberly, shows seven other horses, Sundance being her equitation star.

"This is his first class back since the MacClay Finals,' Kimberly said. "He was a little fresh at the end but performed great. I know him so well. He is my best ride."

Second place for Section A was went to Jessica Springsteen and the 10-year-old chestnut gelding, Papillon 136 of Colts Neck, N.J. riding with Stacia Madden also from Colts Neck.

The winning performance for Section B was by 16-year-old Alexandra Arute of Avon, Conn. and the nine-year-old chestnut gelding, Sander owned by Missy Clark.

"Missy helped me out a lot," Alexandra said, "I felt pretty strong out there. I had good connections through the turns that gave me the right distances. Sander was great. He is a cool horse. He does the Low Juniors and Junior Hunters as well. He is very versatile."

In second place of Section B was Victoria Birdsall and Baheera riding with Andre Dignelli out of Katonah, N.Y.
