Allwyn Court’s Katherine Newman Prepares for Year End Equitation Finals

Upper Marlboro, MD – October 2, 2006 – Fifteen year old Katherine Newman had another successful show this past weekend at Monarch International Equitation Weekend, which was held at the Capital Challenge Horse Show in Upper Marlboro, MD. The young rider, who resides in Wellington, FL, and trains with her parents, Kathy and Gerry Newman, piloted both of her equitation horses in the 15 Year Old Equitation division. She came away with the reserve championship with Forever Blue, a horse Mimi Abel-Smith purchased in June.

“Forever Blue is our new one that we got right after the Upperville Colt and Horse Show,” explained Kathy Newman. “Katherine was practicing with him this weekend because he will be her main equitation horse next year. She normally focuses on Timeless in the equitations. Forever Blue was a jumper, but he’s really coming along nicely. He really stepped up to the plate this weekend.”

Forever Blue also took home the blue ribbon in the Open 3’6’’ Equitation class. Newman rode Timeless, also owned by Abel-Smith, for second and sixth place finishes in the equitation division as well.

“We feel prepared for the equitation finals this year,” added Kathy Newman. “Katherine has worked hard and feels ready, and I definitely think we have the horses to win. She swapped between Timeless and Forever Blue this weekend, which was also helpful to get ready for the USEF Medal Finals and the ASPCA Maclay National Championships.”

Katherine Newman will continue to show her two horses this week at the Capital Challenge Horse Show, which is held through October 8th. She will also compete at the Pennsylvania National in the USEF Medal with Timeless and in the Prix de States with her jumper Costa Sur. She will ride at the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament in the ASPCA Maclay National Championships and the Junior Jumper division.
