Karen Healey Stables' Amanda Ballew Wins Second Consecutive Award at Flintridge Children's Horse Show

Flintridge, CA - April 30, 2008 - Karen Healey Stables attended the Flintridge Children's Horse Show this past weekend and came home with multiple wins and awards. Assistant trainer Amanda Ballew won the Annie Lathrop Trophy as the trainer of the Best Child Rider. This is Ballew's second year in a row winning the award, and this weekend was the one year anniversary of Ballew working for Karen Healey Stables.

The Best Child Rider award went to Michelle Morris of La Canada, CA. This weekend, Morris rode Bergerac, her practice horse. Assistant trainer Melissa Jones said, "Bergerac lives in a paddock with another horse all year round. He goes around barefoot, but he was great this weekend with Michelle." Morris and Bergerac won the USEF Show Jumping Talent Search, the hunter phase of the WIHS Equitation, and the Equitation 15-17 championship and flat class. Morris ended up in the top four in the work-off for the Equitation Championship along with barn mates Demi Stiegler, Samantha Harrison, and Hannah Bibb.

Stiegler ended up taking victory in the Equitation Championship, and she won the Equitation 14 & Under flat class. In the Children's 14 & Under, Stiegler won both over fences classes and the flat class. Stiegler also took the win in the L.A. Junior Medal, the THIS National Children's Medal, and the PCHA Medal.

Haley Harrison of La Canada won the USEF Junior Medal. It was her first time showing in a 3'6" equitation class. She piloted C'est La Vie to the win. On her sister Samantha's horse, Triple Lutz, Haley won the Equitation 14 & Under flat championship. She also rode Galaxy, owned by Donna Neff, to wins in the High Modified Hunters and the Rosewood Medal.

Samantha Harrison also had a great show at Flintridge. She won the ASPCA Maclay, the WIHS Jumper phase, was second in the WCE Medal and Equitation 15-17 flat class, and finished as the reserve champion in the Equitation Championship class.

In addition to her top four finish in the Equitation Championship class, Hannah Bibb placed fourth in the Equitation Flat Championship and was third in the WIHS Jumper phase.

Olivia Tendler joined Karen Healey Stables for this past weekend. Although she trains usually with Equisport International, Tendler went along with the group of Karen Healey students to the Flintridge Children's Horse Show. Tendler won the Onondarka Medal and had top placings in the Limit Equitation division.

Karen Healey Stables will compete next at the Del Mar National Horse Show on April 29- May 4, 2008.
