Katherine Newman Wins Junior Hunter Sportsmanship Award at Pennsylvania National Horse Show

Harrisburg, PA - October 14, 2008 - Katherine Newman of Wellington, FL, was recognized this past week with the Pennsylvania National Horse Show Junior Hunter Sportsmanship Award. The young rider competed in the Small Junior 16-17 Hunter division, as well as the USEF/Pessoa National Hunter Seat Equitation Medal Final. Seventeen-year-old Newman trains with her parents, Kathy and Gerry, at their Florida-based hunter/jumper show stable, Allwyn Court.

In the older Small Junior Hunters, Newman rode Lifetime Guarantee for the owner, Robert Cole. The duo won consistent ribbons, and Newman's positive attitude toward her horse and other competitors led her to receive the Junior Hunter Sportsmanship Award. She also showed in the Medal Final aboard Apollo, owned by SBS Farms, Inc.

"I wasn't told that I was going to get an award, but I figured out that I was getting something," commented Newman. "My parents got dressed up and kept telling me I had to be at the ring to walk the jumper course, even though I wasn't doing that class! I was very surprised though when it was announced. I was really, really happy and excited that I won. It really meant a lot."

Newman will compete again next week at the Washington International Horse Show in Washington, D.C. She will then travel to Syracuse, NY, to show at the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament, which is featuring the 125th National Horse Show.
