Deeridge Farms' Katie Jacobs-Robinson and So You Say Win Winter Equestrian Championship!

Wellington, FL - February 19, 2008 - Deeridge Farms, based out of East Aurora, NY, and Wellington, FL, continued their success at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival. Riders from Deeridge Farms picked up three tricolor ribbons and won top ribbons in divisions ranging from the Children's Pony Hunters to the High Amateur-Owner Jumpers.

Katie Jacobs-Robinson of Bronxville, NY, won the championship in the Amateur-Owner Over 35 Hunters on her new horse So You Say, a seven-year-old Warmblood gelding. The pair won two classes and were second, fourth, and sixth.

Jacobs-Robinson bought So You Say from trainer Louise Serio, who competes with him in the First Year Green Working Hunters. This was the first time that Robinson competed in the Amateur-Owner division, which has jump heights of 3'6".

"It was my turn, and I was thrilled to win," she said. "I'm so lucky to have him. We're off to a good start."

Jacobs-Robinson said that So You Say is a different ride from her other horses that she competes in the division. "He's very straightforward," she noted. "He's very nice to ride and isn't tricky or complicated at all."

Another championship ribbon came from Melissa Jacobs and Dakota, owned by Patricia McGrail-Peasley. They won two classes and were second in another in section A of the Children's Hunter 14 & Under division. In section B, Jacobs and Jouet were third, fourth, fifth, and fifth.

Phoebe Robinson and her horse Maxim finished as reserve champions in section B of the Children's Hunter 14 & Under division. They won two classes on their way to the tricolor. Robinson and Red Dragon competed in section A. They received three third places and a fifth place.

Grace Robinson and Redwood Forest had top placings of second, fourth, and fifth in the Children's Pony Hunter Large division. Grace also competed in the Medium division on Hillcrest Country Lady.

Joan Jacobs and her horse Go West were fast and double clear to finish third in the $10,000 Adult Amateur 36-49 Jumper Classic. They were also fourth in the $1,500 Time First Jump-off class.

Charlie Jacobs and Pia took first place in the $2,500 High Amateur-Owner Power and Speed class.

Deeridge Farms will compete next at the sixth week of the CN Winter Equestrian Festival on Feb. 20-24, 2008.
