Lexington, KY - August 27, 2007 - Over the Hill Farm trainer Bill Schaub of Sanford, FL, is pleased to announce that his student, Taylor Ann Adams of Eads, TN, co-trained with Bibby Farmer Hill and Don Stewart Jr., won the 2007 USEF Pony Medal Final. Adams beat out 197 other young riders in the competition.

Adams was placed fourth after the first round. The top 25 riders in the class were called back for a second round. Adams rode impeccably on Millpond Celebrity and was awarded the top prize.

"We are so proud of Taylor Ann," said Schaub. "She has been working so hard these past few years, and it really paid off for her. She rode beautifully the entire week."
