JT Farm's Talented Equitation Horses Bring Big Wins at WEF

Wellington, FL - February 24, 2009 - Week Seven of the Winter Equestrian Festival proved very successful for the riders of JT Farm, who garnered an array of ribbons. Owned by trainer Jimmy Toon, JT Farm has bases in Wellington, FL and South Salem, NY.

Taylor Kain competed aboard Spock, owned by Katie Galbraith, in the Washington International Horse Show (WIHS) Equitation class, the Pessoa USEF Hunter Seat Medal, and the ASPCA Maclay. Kain won both the hunter and jumper phases of the WIHS Equitation class with scores of 90 and 88, for the overall win and the blue ribbon. Kain was awarded fifth place honors in the Pessoa USEF Hunter Seat Medal and garnered the sixth place award in the ASPCA Maclay.

Spock, a seven-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding by Quick Star, was imported by Toon two years ago. He had not shown much, but has learned quickly in the show ring in the U.S. as an equitation prospect.

This was Spock's first show since competing at the USEF Medal Finals in Harrisburg last October. Toon said, "He went very well this week and still can go better. He needs to get more fit, but he jumps beautifully. He is quite unique; horses have to learn what he does naturally."

Toon also noted that Spock and Kain made a good match. "They fit like a glove," he smiled. "She was very appreciative, and it's really nice when a rider praises their horse. She's a nice young lady and a very good rider."

Brianne Link also had a successful week in the jumper divisions on her pony Tallyman. Link and Tallyman took home the championship tricolor in the Pony Jumper division after earning the blue ribbon in the Time First Round class and the red ribbon in the Time First Jump-off class. Link and Tallyman then competed in the North American League Pony Jumper class and earned fifth place honors.

Carolyn Lichtenberg earned excellent ribbons in the equitation classes during week seven with JT Farm's I Toon. The pair took home fourth in the hunter phase and eighth in the jumper phase of the WIHS Equitation class, for fourth place overall. Lichtenberg also garnered the fourth place award in the ASPCA Maclay and the eighth place award in the Platinum Performance USEF Show Jumping Talent Search.

JT Farm will compete next during the eighth week of competition at the Winter Equestrian Festival, from February 25 - March 1, 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. For more information on JT Farm, please visit http://www.jtfarm.com.
