Katherine Newman Masters Junior Hunter Divisions for Third Consecutive Week at Horse Shows By the Bay

Traverse City, MI - August 5, 2008 - Katherine Newman of Allwyn Court Farm was three for three this past week when she won the championship in the older Small Junior Hunters for the third week in a row. The 17-year-old rider from Wellington, FL, competed at Horse Shows by the Bay III in Traverse City, MI, and mirrored her continued success from previous weeks.

The final week of the three-week series, Newman triumphed for the tricolor in the Small Junior 16-17 Hunters aboard Lifetime Guarantee, owned by Robert Cole. The pair also received the Grand Championship award for the Junior Hunters. Additionally, she came home with the reserve championship on Pirate, owned by Boggs Hill.

The previous two weeks at Horse Shows by the Bay I and II, she alternated between champion and reserve with Lifetime Guarantee and Pirate, earning a total of six tricolors in the older small juniors. She also won two championships in the older large junior hunters with Sherri Crawford's horse All The Answers.

"Both of my hunters were great this week," smiled Newman. "Pirate was first and fourth over fences on Wednesday. On Thursday, he was third in the under saddle and first and second over fences," she said. "Lifetime Guarantee won the under saddle, and over fences he was first, first, second, and third. It was really exciting to be champion every week up here."

The young rider also won the blue ribbon in the USEF Show Jumping Talent Search on Corvino, a horse she catch-rode for Wendy Arndt Hodges. "It was my first time showing him," she noted. "He is a little green, but very simple to ride." In the jumper ring, she successfully competed with Chellapo Z in the junior jumpers. Chellapo Z is owned by Mimi Abel-Smith.

Newman will compete next in Saugerties, NY, in the USEF Junior Hunter National Championships. She will then travel to Lexington, KY, to show on the weekend.
