Maplewood Takes Top Honors at Thunderbird
The Maplewood Stables team returned home from two weeks at Thunderbird in Langley, British Columbia, August 15-26, with an impressive collection of ribbons, coolers and memories.
"This was one of the best shows we've had in recent memory," said Maplewood CEO Julie Winkel. "Our horses went beautifully, and Thunderbird is an amazing venue. We're so thankful to the management and staff, including Jane Tidball and Christopher Pack. It's our favorite place to compete and only gets better each year."
Andrew Teer Jayne garnered multiple victories at Thunderbird aboard Georgia Brown's Onyx, a homebred by Osilvis. During Week 2, they won a CWD 2G Open 1.30m Jumper class over a competitive field. They then returned on the show's final day to claim the $5,000 1.20m Open Classic and the winning check of $1,500 with a super speedy jump-off performance no one else could match.
Aboard Maplewood's homebred Cartel (by Cartouche Z), Andrew won a 1.40m Open Jumper class and earned the co-championship during Week 1. Andrew also made his debut in the Under 25 division, taking seventh place in the $15,000 MarBill Hill U25 in a strong field of contenders during Week 2.
Julie wasn't without her own accolades. She and Good To Know earned the championship in the Open 1.30m Jumpers during Week 2. The pair also finished the show strongly, jumping to just 1 time fault in the $10,000 Jaguar Land Rover Winning Round. They also placed fifth in Week 1's $10,000 1.30m Classic Equipment Winning Round.
Devina Stone and Maplewood's Oxford (by Osilvis) collected ribbons and great mileage in the 1.10m classes during the two weeks.
