Henderson and Massa Victorious in Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumpers Saturday at Monmouth

Freehold, NJ – August 19, 2006 – Early morning sunshine gave way to cloudy skies by lunchtime at the 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse, which is underway through Sunday at East Freehold Park in New Jersey. At the Stillwell-Hansen Arena, the Saturday jumper action focused the Juniors, Amateurs, Children, and Adults.

Germantown, Tennessee’s Blake Alder is designing the course for the jumpers this week at the Monmouth County Horse Show.

In the Low Junior-Amateur/Owner Jumpers, scored under USEF Table II sec. 2b, Time First Jump-Off, twenty-two starters went to the post. Of the twenty-two, eleven were clear and jumped off.

In the tiebreaker, it was the last rider in the ring, Ashley Massa and Jamira, taking top honors. Massa cruised home in 37.090 seconds to squeak out a narrow 3/10th of a second win over Shannon McGrath and Ancho de Pomme. McGrath’s time was 37.313 seconds.

In third place, 3/10ths of a second behind McGrath, was Sara Ryan and Orleen. They finished up in 37.680 seconds.

Massa trains with Monmouth County Grand Prix defending champion Laura Chapot. “I just started training with Laura in Florida, and ever since then, my horse has been going amazingly well,” she said. “Laura told me to keep my pace, and don’t lose the impulsion coming around a turn. Just keep coming forward and you’ll see your distance.”

Massa said the instructions paid off despite some pre-class jitters. “From fence 1 to fence 2, I had a great pace. I left out a stride in one line, and made a good turn from 11 to 10 at the end,” she detailed. “I was kind of nervous in the schooling area because I had a couple of bad take-offs, but she (Jamira) really helped me over them and that helped me gain confidence once we got in the ring, we both seemed to have a lot of confidence and it worked out for the win.”

In the High section of Junior-Amateur-Owner Jumpers, also scored as an immediate jump-off class under the Table II sec. 2b format, only five competitors lined up for the event.

Spellbound and Charlotte Henderson, the only combination to post a double clear round, took home the top prize. Joy Slater, with four faults in the jump-off on Pisano, finished second.

“It was a very good course with a smooth flow to it,” said Henderson following her win. “Everything worked out the way we planned it, and she jumped great.”

When asked if she took into account that there were no clear rounds, Henderson said, “I went pretty carefully. There was a turn where you could have really risked it with an inside cut, but I elected to go around and that choice worked out perfectly.”

A big day in the Stillwell-Hansen Arena on Sunday wraps up the 111th Annual Monmouth County Horse Show. The top Junior and Amateur/Owner Jumpers go head to head in the Quiet Winter Farm Low and High Classics in the morning, and then following special pre-event festivities, the $30,000 Stillwell-Hansen Grand Prix will provide a full afternoon of excitement. Thirty-five starters are expected in Sunday’s main event, with defending champion Laura Chapot looking for a repeat victory.
