Good Point and Jennifer Reid Win Championship at CN Winter Equestrian Festival

Wellington, FL - March 3, 2008 - Jennifer Reid of Wellington, FL, and her mount Good Point rode to victory this week at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival. They were champions in the Adult Amateur 18-35 Hunters.

Good Point is a 12-year-old Warmblood gelding owned by Bainbridge Farm. Reid and Good Point have only been together for three weeks, so their early success is a great vindication. The pair won the under saddle class and were second and third over fences for the championship.

"He was just spectacular," Reid said of Good Point. "He was quiet and interested in the jumps. He just loves his job." The handsome horse has had success in the past with top riders Ken Berkley and Nancy and Heather Hooker before he arrived at Bainbridge Farm. "He jumps a 90 every time, no matter what mistakes I make," Reid laughed.

This was the pair's first championship together, although they won classes in the first week of competition. "It felt great," Reid said of her win. "We came close a couple of weeks ago when we won the two over fences classes. But, the tricky part of showing at this level is that it's all relative to how everyone else does. I'm really excited to be champion, especially with all of the wonderful horses in the adult (hunters) this year. It really has become the major leagues at WEF. Everyone has the hack winner, everyone has great jumpers and the riders all bring their best efforts."

Bainbridge Farm and Reid will compete next week at the eighth installment of the CN Winter Equestrian Festival on March 5-9.
