Telluride Farm Makes Its Mark at 'Canada One' Tournament in Spruce Meadows

Calgary, AB, CAN - June 30, 2008 - This past week the students at Telluride Farm captured impressive ribbons at the 'Canada One' Tournament at Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The competition was held from June 26-29, and Diane Carney's students rose to the occasion and executed beautiful rounds in the show ring.

Carney, who owns and trains at Telluride Farm in Hampshire, IL, coached her students to consistent ribbons throughout the competition. Stefanie Collier piloted Corrato in the 1.25m Open Jumper class and pinned fourth out of 50 riders. Collier, who is based out of Westfield, IN, showed the horse for Caitie Hope and the owner, Jennifer Hauser.

"Team Telluride did great this week!" exclaimed Carney. "We had an excellent show. Stefanie did really well with Corrato. They were fast in the jump-off and had an amazing finish. Our horses arrived in Canada on Monday and competed on Thursday, and they were just outstanding."

In addition, Hope competed with her horse La Paz and pinned fourth in 1.30m Junior/Amateur speed class against 50 other exhibitors. Later in the week, the pair came home with eighth place in the 1.30m grand prix. She also guided Corrato to an eighth place finish in the 1.20 Junior Jumpers.

Hannah Gorman added another ribbon to Telluride Farm's collection when she took sixth place in the 1.10m Junior Jumpers aboard her mount Pepe. Stephanie Pearson rode her way to fifth place in the 1.15m Junior Jumpers with Wild Cat, owned by Don Stewart, Jr. She also secured the eleventh place ribbon in the same class with Symphatico III.

"Team Telluride really went to it and had a strong first week," smiled Carney. "My students were in the top ten all week long, and I am absolutely delighted. They will definitely be on their mark for the North American Tournament this upcoming week."

Carney, based out of Hampshire, IL, has been both an active participant and influential trainer in the hunter and jumper community for many years. Her contributions to the industry extend to the many clinics that she teaches every year, in addition to those that she hosts annually for U.S. Show Jumping Chef d'Equipe George H. Morris and top hunter/jumper trainer Don Stewart Jr. Carney is also a driving force behind the United States Hunter Jumper Association's High Performance Hunter Committee, which created the International Hunter Derby program that focuses on bringing the lost art of tradition and horsemanship back to the show ring.
