Legacy Cup 2006: Chris Payne and Tucker Shine in 3' Pro Finals

Jennifer Papiernik and Montrachet win Go Round

Tucker was the 15th horse to go and when the three pair of judges gave him a combined score of 262 in the 3’ Pro Finals the remaining riders knew that would be tough to beat. In fact no one else could surpass that score and they rose as the winners and the recipients of a check for $4,356.

Payne was impressed and appreciative of the fact that he gets to ride the 8-year-old, 15.3 hand, bay Hanoverian, owned by Julie Holzberger. “He’s such a good horse. He always tries his hardest no matter what the class is,” explained the 37-year-old.

“He’s soft, light and has a natural, high beautiful jump. He does the best he can every time and is so scopey,” he added about the horse who “loves to be appreciated. He loves attention. He’s such a sweet kind horse to be around.”

When asked how he did in the 3’ Pro Go Round, which was sponsored by All Seasons Farm and won by Jennifer Papiernik and Montrachet the day before and where Tucker placed ninth he explained, “I had a bird incident. At the last fence a bird spooked my horse but he was good up until then.” Montrachet also won the Restricted Pro Go Round sponsored by Gray Wolf Farm.

Papiernik, who started riding when she was 13, “was very proud,” of the horse who loves candy and cupcakes. “His owner (Lauren Butwid) brings him frosted cupcakes from Publix. She even bought him an Easter Basket.”

“I love training the babies,” added Papiernik, Wellington, FL, who along with her trainer Judy Grayson has slowly taken Montrachet up the ladder and he’s responded quite well to their careful, easy paced schedule. “He is probably one of the easiest horses in the barn. He’s very simple, always has his ears up and loves attention. He’s got such a great personality.”

This was Papiernik’s first Legacy Cup and she “had a blast! We thought it would be fun and something new,” explained Papiernik. The 25 year old also credited the fact that she “had a great horse. He’s a pre green and he just peaked at the right time. He’s gotten so straightforward and very easy to ride.”
