Melissa Jacobs Wins Championship at Capital Challenge Horse Show

Upper Marlboro, MD – October 9, 2006 – The Capital Challenge finished competition this week on October 2-8, 2006. SBS Farms Inc., with trainers Susie Schoellkopf and Jennifer Alfano, competed at the show. Twelve year old Melissa Jacobs of Buffalo, NY, and the paint pony Cosmic Scribbles rode to the Children’s Pony Hunter championship.

Jacobs and Cosmic Scribbles, who is owned by Bibby Farmer Hill, won a class and received a second place ribbon for the tricolor. This is only Jacob’s second time competing at Capital Challenge.

Cosmic Scribbles is “really fun to ride and is pretty smooth. He’s really fun to jump,” Jacobs said.

“Melissa is a very competitive rider,” Schoellkopf commented. “She has a real passion for her horses and ponies.”

In addition to Jacobs’ success, two other riders from SBS Farms competed at Capital Challenge. Charlotte Jacobs of East Aurora, NY, rode Home at Last to fifth and seventh place ribbons in an extremely talented Medium Pony Hunter division that had over 40 entries.

Meredith Lipke Bartolone of Buffalo, NY, rode the bay mare Once and Again to a fifth place in the Amateur-Owner 36 & Over Hunters, another division that had over 40 competitors.

SBS Farms Inc. will travel next to the Pennsylvania National Horse Show for competition from October 12th to 21st. Charlotte Jacobs, Bartolone, and junior rider Kacey McCann will show in the first week, while Jennifer Alfano will ride four mounts in the second week.
