Jennifer Hauser and Ideal Triumphant in $1,000 NAL/WIHS Horse Shows by the Bay Adult Hunter Classic

Traverse City, MI - August 3, 2008 - After 3 weeks at Flintfields Horse Park in Traverse City, MI Horse Shows by the Bay wrapped up its final day of competition today. In the Polk Family Main Hunter Ring the $1,000 NAL/WIHS Adult Hunter Classic competed for final honors. It was Jennifer Hauser and Ideal who came out one top.

The Adult Hunter Classic had only ten entries for the second round of competition. Jennifer Hauser and Ideal were the last to go in the class, but had a great round, which, combined with their first round gave them a total score of 169 to win the class.

Hauser is from Indiana and is currently a junior in college at Purdue University.

She trains with Erin McCabe and was very happy about her win in the classic stating, "I am really excited. I was kind of surprised to win, but it is great."

Hauser's horse, Ideal, is a chestnut gelding with a big white blaze. She has owned him for a few years now and used to show him in the Junior Hunters. According to Hauser, the horse has not been showing much recently and this was only his third or fourth show back, so she was thrilled with how well he did.

"I am really excited with how well he is doing," Hauser smiled. "He is so sweet; he is like a big snuggly dog."

Hauser has been riding since she was 9 years old and started out doing the hunters and jumpers at local horse shows and 4-H. She has a horse that she does in the amateur jumpers right now and she also has an up and coming 5 year-old horse as well.

Because of doing some shows in Indiana this summer, Hauser only made it up to Horse Shows by the Bay for this last week, but now that she is here, she has found herself wondering why they did not come up for all three weeks. "It is so nice up here," she said. "It is just beautiful, I wish we could have been here for the whole show."

Terri Dandino and Foreign Encounter came in second place behind Hauser and Ideal in the Adult Hunter Classic, just two points behind them with a total score of 167. Third place was Carrie Henderson and Manitou with a total score of 165. Fourth place went to Nicole Jeffries and All About Me with 160. Fifth place was Francesca Senor and Sundance with a score of 156 and sixth place honors went to Sue Hehl and Something's Cookin' with a score of 152.

This was the last day of competition for the 2008 Horse Shows by the Bay equestrian festival. After 3 weeks of exciting competition and wonderful events for everyone to enjoy, the show has come to an end for the season. Thanks to all of the generous sponsors from all 3 weeks, the hard work of all of the horse show staff and the enthusiasm and contributions of all of the exhibitors and spectators, it has been another wonderful year here at Horse Shows by the Bay at Flintfields Horse Park in beautiful Traverse City, MI.
