Telluride Farm Rides for Ribbons at Lake St. Louis Holiday Hunter/Jumper Horse Show

St. Louis, MO - December 11, 2007 - Diane Carney's students of Telluride Farm were successful in competition this past week at the Lake St. Louis Holiday Hunter/Jumper show, which ran from Dec. 5-9 in St. Louis, MO.

In the USHJA Hunter Style Challenge Derby Classic, Brenda Mueller and That'll Do, owned by Carney and Don Stewart, finished in a close second place to Tammy Provost and Daquiri. In the class, which is part of the new High Performance Hunter movement, the jumps were all natural and ranged from 3'6" to 4' in height.

"The class showed what great sport and competition really is. There were 27 entries with riders ranging from professionals to juniors to amateur-owners," Carney said. "Tommy McIntyre and the High Performance committee should be congratulated on presenting such an important venue for hunters, which showcases great riding, great hunters and excellent prize money."

Junior Catie Hope had a great start to the winter show season and won the USEF/Pessoa Hunter Seat Medal aboard Carmachon. Partnered with Caped Crusader, Hope took a first, second, third and two seventh places in the Large Junior 16-17 Hunters. She also competed in the High Junior Jumpers with La Paz and was pinned reserve champion of the division. The pair was second, third and fourth for the tricolor.

Stephanie Pearson and Sympathico III were consistent and competitive in the Junior Jumper divisions, picking up second, fifth and sixth place ribbons.

Hannah Gorman had a strong performance in the Large Junior 16-17 Hunters and the Novice Jumpers. With Cactus, owned by Carney, Gorman took a fourth and a fifth place ribbon over fences in the large juniors, while placing fourth in the under saddle with her own Skyland's Wonder.

Riding outside of Chicago for the first time, Lauren Magraw took home the championship tricolor in the short stirrup division. She won both flat classes and was second and third in the over fences portion of the competition.

Carney, based out of Hampshire, IL, from her Telluride Farm, 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 seeks to develop a program that will bring the lost art of tradition and horsemanship back to the show ring.
