At the Golden Gate Classic horse show in Woodside, CA, Swingtime, owned by Avery Hellman, was Champion in the $2500 USEF/USHJA Hunter Derby. Hope rode to yet another convincing win, congrats!!
Horses arrived in great shape after 32 hour drive. We encountered wet conditions for the first few days, including cancellation of all classes on Thursday because it never stopped raining! Since then the weather has been good and the horses (and riders) have been better. Highlights include Eleanor and Clooney 9 jumping clean and placing third in 1.3 m welcome and Madison and Corralino jumping off to a third place place finish in The Friends of the Meadows Barrage week one. Week two is underway and on day one all four horses jumped clean highlighted by Madison and Lottie finishing second in the 1.2 m speed championship. SVS is very proud of how we are being represented at Spruce Meadows!
