SBS Farm's Jennifer Alfano Sweeps Working Hunter Championship at Tampa Equestrian Festival

Tampa, FL - March 23, 2009 - SBS Farm's Jennifer Alfano had two very successful days of competition at the 2009 Tampa Equestrian Festival this past week. Alfano showed her talented young horses Kid Rock and Exxtraordinary at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center on the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa and won both the championship and reserve championship honors in the Working Hunter division. Alfano is the rider and trainer at SBS Farms with Susie Schoellkopf.

Alfano, of Buffalo, NY, won the Working Hunter championship tricolor aboard six year-old Kid Rock, owned by Bright Star 158 LLC. Kid Rock won the championship after placing first in three of the division's five classes, and coming in second and fourth in the others.

Five year-old Extraordinary, owned by Helen Lenahan of Buffalo, NY, was reserve champion of the Working Hunters with Alfano, placing first, second, third, third and fourth in the division's individual classes.

"Being First Year horses, they started out the year pretty green, and they are both just really starting to come into their own," Alfano commented. "Extraordinary is only five, and he was really green starting out. He was really behind the eight ball, but they are both really starting to come around and be more and more consistent now."

Alfano showed Kid Rock in the Pre-Greens last year and has had the horse for about a year and a half, whereas Extraordinary she has only been riding since this past summer.

"They are both pretty easy and quiet, and they are both great about the jumps," Alfano said of the horses. "They are just a little green when it comes to rideability, but every week they just get better and better with more experience."

Alfano had a brief stay in Tampa after competing at the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit. She now plans to go back to Ocala to finish out the week's competition and will then compete in the $50,000 ASG Software Solutions/USHJA International Hunter Derby at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington next weekend.
