Staphanie Riggio & Indian Summer Win Amateur Owner Hunters 18-35 Years

WELLINGTON, Fla., Mar. 15---Stephanie Riggio and Indian Summer won the first trip over fences in the Amateur Owner Hunters 18-35 years to take their first blue ribbon at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival presented by Zimmerman Advertising Saturday.

Riggio of New York and the 10-year-old chestnut gelding took over the lead in the first trip over fences with the high score of 89. The pair came back to finish fourth in the second trip with the score of 83. Riggio and Indian Summer train with Karen Caristo of Watermill, N.Y. This is Indian Summer's second year in this division and their first blue ribbon of this circuit.

"He had two weeks off and I think that changed his attitude," Stephanie said. "He is excited to be here today and happy about his job."

First place in the second trip, with a score of 90, was awarded to Dawn Fogel from Louisville, Ky. and her 10-year-old bay gelding, Granduer. The pair ride with trainer Rick Fancher also of Louisville. They won the $1,000 Stakes class for this division last week at WEF.

The red ribbon in the second trip with a score of 86 was presented to Krista Weisman of Sherborn, Mass. and the nine-year-old bay gelding Music Street. This is Krista's third year showing Music Street in this division. Scott Stewart of Wellington is their trainer.

Second place with a score of 85 in the second trip went to Laura Sexton of New York and the 14-year-old bay gelding, Renaissance. Sexton, who rides with Frank and Bonnie Kniff of South Salem, N.Y., bought the bay gelding six years ago and the pair have been showing in this division for three years.

"He was perfect today," Laura said. "He hasn't shown in three months and he hasn't jumped and we just went in the ring today and he impressed us all."
