SBS Farms Notches Two Tricolor Performances at Jacksonville Winter III Horse Show

Green Cove Springs, FL - January 28, 2009 - It was another good week for SBS Farms at the Jacksonville Winter III Horse Show on January 21-25. They brought home two reserve championships and are prepared to go into full swing of competition for the new year. SBS Farms is led by head trainer Susie Schoellkopf and is based at the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center in Buffalo, NY.

The first reserve championship came early in the week. Jennifer Alfano, trainer and rider for SBS Farms, rode South Beach, owned by Bright Star 158 LLC and Jennifer Burger, to the tricolor in the Green Conformation Hunters. This was South Beach's second tricolor performance in a row at the Jacksonville series.

The handsome bay gelding was third in the model class. In the over fences portion of the division, South Beach picked up three second place ribbons as well as a fourth place. The pair finished second in the under saddle.

"I was very pleased with him again," Alfano said. "It's great that he is coming out each week with such consistency this early in the year."

Over the weekend, the turn to shine came in the pony hunter ring. Blue Ridge Sunset, owned by Sara Rimmler and Harper Hills LLC, won the reserve championship in the Large Pony Hunters with rider Taylor Ann Adams. They were trained by Shane Powell of SBS Farms and Bibby Farmer Hill.

The pair, who were champions in the first week of the Jacksonville show series, finished second, third, fourth, and fifth over fences in the division this week. They also picked up second place in the Large Pony Hunter Classic.

"We're very pleased with the way the pony is going," said Schoellkopf. "We're very excited to watch him compete this year and to have Sara win with him as well."

SBS Farms will compete next at the Jacksonville Winter IV Horse Show on January 28 to February 1, 2009, then they will move on to the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit in Ocala, FL.
