Julie Welles of North Run Won SHALANNO Style of Riding Award

Julie Welles, who trains with is a working student for Missy Clark at North Run in Warren, VT, won the SHALANNO Style of Riding Award Perpetual Trophy at this September's 31st annual Hampton Classic Horse Show. The SHALANNO Style of Riding Award Perpetual Trophy is presented to the Junior Jumper rider who best exemplifies the American style of equitation as modeled by Olympic medalists Joe Fargis, Conrad Homfeld and George Morris. The judges felt that Welle demonstrated the respectful, dignified, courteous and workmanlike manner of a true sportsman.

Welles, an 18 year old from Simsbury, CT, was selected by the jumper judges at the Hampton Classic as well as by horse show personnel (jumper ring in-gate, steward, and announcer) who were in a position to observe the necessary sportsmanship qualities of the horse show's Junior Jumper riders and who have the knowledge of equitation riding necessary to make this judgment. "We are both pleased and proud that Julie has been presented with such a prestigious honor," said John Brennan, Missy Clark's husband and partner at North Run. "This type of award is more than just about riding, its about overall horsemanship, which is as important as a winning round."

Welles won a team Gold Medal at this year's CN North American Young Riders' Championships and had a major victory when she won the $10,000 Pepsi Bottling Company High Junior Jumper Classic at the Lake Placid Horse Show which then catapulted her to the top of the pack in the junior division of the East Conference in the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series.

In 2005, Welles earned two major wins during the show season. First, she was named the co-equitation champion at Devon with Carolyn Kelly. A few months later, she won the Kathy Scholl Equitation Championship at Lake Placid. Welles also has experience winning at major finals, with her reserve championships at the ASPCA Maclay and the WIHS Equitation Classic in 2004.
