Olivia Esse Elicits Wins at HITS Desert Circuit

Burbank, California. Throughout the 2007 HITS Desert Circuit at the new showgrounds in Thermal, California, Olivia Esse posted consistent performances in the Junior Hunters. Country Grammar was definitely her star mount. The pair won several championships in the Small Junior Hunters for riders 15 & under. They culminated the circuit with the Half-Circuit Reserve Championship and an impressive third place finish in the $1,000 Junior Hunter Classic.

In only her second year showing at 3'6", Esse continues to develop her consistency and she is emerging as a stylish hunter rider. In addition to showing Country Grammar in the Small Junior Hunters, Esse also shows After the Laughter in the same section. In the Large Junior Hunters, Esse shows By Design and Valor.

Esse still shows as 12 and under and in the first week of competition, she won the Onondarka Medal for riders 12 and under. Esse promises to be a serious contender in this yearís finals. She is also leading in the point standings for the West Coast Equestrians Junior/Amateur Medal, a challenging class held over a jumper-type course. Esse is proving her versatility and comfort with the various equitation courses and questions.

Randy Durand and Esse have worked together since Esse first started riding. He coached her through a highly successful riding career in the pony division, which culminated with numerous year end championships and winning trips to the indoor fall circuit.

After a rest after the six week winter circuit, Durandís horses and riders will resume showing at the Oaks, Showpark, and Del Mar.
