Telluride Farm's Catie Hope Posts Stellar Results at Kentucky National Horse Show

Lexington, KY - October 3, 2007 - Telluride Farm, led by Diane Carney of Hampshire, IL, showed last week at the Kentucky National Horse Show and earned plenty of ribbons with which to decorate their tack room curtain.

Catie Hope had an outstanding weekend, earning the championship in the Junior Jumpers by winning both classes. Hope, partnered with La Paz, was one of two riders to jump clean in each class. The pair also won the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Junior/Amateur Owner Jumper Classic with quick and tidy rounds.

Hope's success continued as she finished third overall in the Zone 5 ASPCA/National Horse Show Horsemanship Class and took eighth place in the ASPCA Maclay Region 4 Championships aboard Carmachon.

"Catie really stepped up this weekend in Kentucky," Carney explained. "Her jumper rounds were just fantastic, and she couldn't have had a better prep for Indoors than this. The competition was great and she rode so well - she's come a long way." She continued, "Everyone performed at their best their weekend, and I couldn't be happier with the results."

Hope was also awarded the Four Winds trophy from the National Horse Show Association for the best turned out horse-and-rider combination of the 55 pairs in the class.

Brenda Mueller and That'll Do also excelled in the Regular Working Hunters, earning a fourth place over fences and jogging for ribbons in every other class. That'll Do is owned by Carney and Don Stewart Jr.

Stephanie Pearson and Symphatico III, also owned by Carney, showed very well, placing in the Junior/Amateur Owner jumper division.

"We showed in the Johnson Arena this week, which is a huge step up from the Walnut Arena," Carney said. "All my students had very solid performances and did an excellent job with really tough competition."

Carney, based out of Hampshire, IL, from her Telluride Farm, has been both an active participant and influential trainer in the hunter and jumper community for many years. Her contributions to the industry extend to the many clinics that she teaches every year, in addition to those that she hosts annually for U.S. Show Jumping Chef d'Equipe George H. Morris and top hunter/jumper trainer Don Stewart Jr. Carney is also a driving force behind the United States Hunter Jumper Association's High Performance Hunter Committee, which seeks to develop a program that will bring the lost art of tradition and horsemanship back to the show ring.
