Thermal, CA – February 1, 2007 – At last week’s opening show at the new grounds in Thermal, riders from Karen Healey Stables, based in Westlake Village, CA, rode to a wide range of honors in the equitation, jumper and hunter divisions.

One of the most successful young riders of the week was Holly Dickinson of Los Angeles, CA. Dickinson was named Best Child Rider of the week after she was champion in the Children’s Hunter 13 & Under division on White Gold, owned by HMG Farms. White Gold won three over fences classes and was second in the under saddle and was also third in the Children’s Hunter Classic.

On Victor, Dickinson made her 3’6” equitation debut to top finishes. She was fourth in the USEF Junior Medal class, second in the CPHA Junior Medal and fifth in the Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) Jumper phase.

Dickinson’s mother Elizabeth had a great show as well. On Here’s Johnny, she was champion in the Equitation 36-50 division. In the medals, they picked up a slew of second places, including in the Foxfield Medal, Marshall and Sterling Adult Medal and the WCE Junior/Amateur Medal. On Cacique, Dickinson was second in the Low Amateur-Owner Jumpers.

She was second in the USEF Junior Medal, ASPCA Maclay and overall in the Washington Equitation Classic, and she won the CPHA Junior Medal, all with RSVP. In their first show together, Dilandri rode Chanel 292 to fourth place in the $5,000 Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic. Dilandri also picked up a catch ride for trainer Archie Cox and won the reserve championship in the Large Junior 15 & Under Hunters on Coal Creek, owned by Janie Andrew.

Top junior rider Hannah Selleck and her mount Apartico won the ASPCA Maclay class and the WCE Junior/Amateur Medal. She made her debut this week in the grand prix on her jumper Bauer.

Veronica Tracy of San Juan Capistrano, CA, and Guns N’ Roses won the USEF Talent Search class and the WIHS Jumper phase. This gave them an overall third place in the WIHS Equitation Classic, and they picked up fourth in the ASPCA Maclay class.

Kristi Siam of Chatsworth, CA, and Karma won the PCHA 35 and Over class and were fourth in the Ariat Adult medal. Kayla Siam finished third in the CPHA Amateur class and won the Equitation 18-35 Equitation on the flat.
