JT Farm Continues Success in Second Week of FTI Winter Equestrian Festival

Wellington, FL - January 19, 2009 - It was the second week in a row of tricolor ribbons for JT Farm at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) on January 14-18 in Wellington, FL. Riders were led by trainer Jimmy Toon. JT Farm has two locations in South Salem, NY, and Wellington, FL.

One of the most successful riders this week was young Brianne Link of East Islip, NY. Link, who just made the move up from the Children's Pony Hunter division last year, is making the change and winning. She and Silas V won the championship in the Children's 14 & Under Hunters after they took home two blue ribbons in the division. The pair was also third in the THIS National Children's Medal class. Toon rode Silas V to a third place ribbon in the First Year Green Hunters.

On JT Farm's Black Diamond, Link finished fifth in the Low Children's Jumper Classic and won sixth and eighth place ribbons in the division. She and Tallyman were fourth in the NAL Pony Jumper class and placed fifth in the other two classes of the division.

Toon noted of Link's success, "It's a little bit of a fairy tale story. We're happy that she is moving up so rapidly. Things don't usually happen this quickly. We're excited for her."

Carolyn Lichtenberg of Pelham Manor, NY, continued winning this week with JT Farm's I-Toon. Lichtenberg won the ASPCA Maclay class. "We're thrilled for Carolyn," Toon said. "She is advancing to the next level in her equitation career." Lichtenberg also picked up top ribbons in the Large Junior 16-17 Hunters on The Boss.

Ellen Toon, who has won the WEF Circuit Championship for the past five years in a row, competed this week in the Amateur-Owner Over 35 Hunters on Invincible, who won last year's circuit championship. The pair was awarded the reserve championship ribbon. They placed first, third, fourth, and fifth in the division.

JT Farm will compete next in the third week of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival on January 21-25, 2009.

At JT Farm, riders of all levels are welcome and are afforded the very best training by a staff of experienced, caring professionals who are committed to excellence in the show ring in equitation, hunters and jumpers.
