Jimmy Torano On George Morris Excellence in Equitation Judges Panel

WELLINGTON, Fla., Mar. 13--Jimmy Torano has joined the judging panel for the George H. Morris Excellence in Equitation class at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival presented by Zimmerman Advertising on Friday, March 14.

Torano joins a star studded lineup of judges and officials that includes George Morris, Olympic individual gold medalist Rodrigo Pessoa, U.S. Olympians Melanie Smith Taylor and Anne Kursinski and 2008 Olympic course designer Leopoldo Palacios.

The Ft. Lauderdale Grand prix rider, trainer and judge was selected for the panel after Brianne Goutal asked to withdraw to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.

"The number of entries from across the country and the high level of interest to show before Mr. Morris and the other judges has been amazing," said Goutal, 19, of New York who is now a successful international Grand Prix rider. She had been asked to join the judging panel because of her success at the top level of junior riders and to provide a perspective from a different generation.

"When I first agreed to judge I did so on condition that I would withdraw my name if there were entries from my trainer and others associated with my riding. The sad news for me is that being around judges of such high caliber would have been a wonderful learning experience, but the good news is just how many riders, including some of my friends and stablemates, want to show before these judges. So I asked to withdraw."
