Maplewood Makes News at Meadow View
The Maplewood team enjoyed great success during the Meadow View Charity Horse Show, July 8-9 in Reno, Nevada. Maplewood's Assistant Trainers Andrew Jayne and Corinne Shaw took 18 horses that competed in the Hunters, Jumpers and Equitation classes.
A highlight was Emily Anderson's blue-ribbon show ring debut. Emily, a student in Maplewood's Horse Industry Training Program, began riding just six months ago and has made impressive progress so far. She competed in the Crossrail Hunters aboard Maplewood's Mac. The pair topped their class with a smooth, confident round.
Sabrina Fox, also a Horse Industry Training Program student, guided the 5-year-old Sage to ribbons in every class they contested in the Mini Hunters.
Lisa Trujilo and Outspoken (a homebred by Osilvis) also made their show ring debut a winning one, capturing the blue ribbon in the Opportunity Walk-Trot under saddle and placing third and fifth in the Poles and Equitation classes for the overall reserve championship.
Andrew Jayne was busy both days with multiple rides in the Hunters and Jumpers. Aboard Sumiko, he placed third in the $1,500 Hunter Derby and placed fourth in a Low Hunter class.
On Saturday's Jumper day, Andrew guided Carma (by Cartouche Z) to the reserve championship in the Level 3 section and placed seventh in the $1,500 Jumper Derby. He also earned excellent ribbons aboard Lover Boy and the Maplewood 5-year-old Oxford (by Osilvis).
Corinne Shaw swept the Pre-Training Jumpers for championship honors aboard Cinnabon. In addition, Maplewood clients Karen Dearmont, with Annie Up, Hannelore Beijerbergen, riding Dardam Q, Emily Luscri, with Ostella, and Sarah Ross, riding Mac, earned excellent placings in the Jumpers.
