Lauren Hough and Ohlala Win $130,000 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Washington presented by Events DC


Hunter Holloway Tops WIHS Equitation Finals; Madison Goetzmann and Sophie Michaels Triumph in Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classics

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28, 2016—-Top U.S. show jumpers Lauren Hough, Laura Kraut, and Kent Farrington were the top three in Saturday night’s $130,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Washington, presented by Events DC, on Saturday night at the 2016 Washington International Horse Show (WIHS). Competing for the coveted President of the United States Perpetual Cup, as well as valuable Longines FEI World Cup™ qualifying points, the grand prix was the highlight event of the week at Verizon Center in downtown Washington, D.C. Hough and Ohlala took the victory, with Kraut and Confu in second, and Farrington aboard Creedance third.

Also competing on Saturday, Hunter Holloway won the 2016 WIHS Equitation Finals. Madison Goetzmann and Wrigley were victorious in the $15,000 SJHOF Ambassador’s Cup High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic, sponsored by Staysail Farm, and Sophie Michaels riding Darero topped the $7,500 Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic, sponsored by The Strauss Family. Competition concludes on Sunday with the Pony Hunters, WIHS Pony Equitation Finals, and WIHS Regional Finals, sponsored by The Linden Group at Morgan Stanley.

Course designer Alan Wade (IRL) set the tracks for jumper competition throughout the week at Verizon Center. In Saturday night’s feature event, Wade saw 28 starters over his first round course, with seven advancing to the jump-off and two double clear rounds in the race against the clock. Carrying on their winning momentum from Thursday’s $35,000 International Jumper Welcome Stake, which was also the grand prix qualifier, Hough and Ohlala earned another exciting victory.

Reid.
Kraut and St. Bride’s Farm’s Confu were first to clear the jump-off track without fault in 37.80 seconds for their eventual second place finish. Beezie Madden (USA) and Abigail Wexner’s Quister, followed by Kent Farrington and R.C.G. Farm’s Creedance, both had the same fence down in the last line and finished with four faults each. Madden’s time of 36.89 seconds took fourth place, and Farrington’s blazing time of 34.28 seconds placed third. Last to go, Hough and Ohlala were clear, topping Kraut’s time to take the win in 36.56 seconds.

“She was incredible the whole week,” Hough said of the 12-year-old Swedish Warmblood mare (Orlando x Cardento) owned by The Ohlala Group. “Thursday was a really nice warm-up for her. I ended up winning, but I tried not to take every risk in that class with tonight in mind.

“I was really lucky to be able to go last,” Hough continued. “In the first round, she touched a couple and then jumped the end of the course very well. Then I was able to see Kent go in the jump-off, who took every risk I thought, and ended up having one down. I saw the difference in time between Kent and Laura, and I thought it was smarter to ride the round that I thought suited my horse. I did one more step in the first line and also in the last line than everybody else, but she is very quick across the ground. All the stars were lined up for me this week, so I’m thrilled”

Lauren Hough and Ohlala

Hough has been second in the WIHS grand prix multiple times, but never got the win until now and was happy to get the honor on home turf in the U.S. and earn points to qualify for this year’s Longines FEI World Cup™ Finals in Omaha, Nebraska.

“I think being second a couple of times makes you hungry for it,” Hough remarked. “I really had to stay focused and not get ahead of myself. Some of Ohlala’s owners were here tonight, and they don’t get to see her that often because she is based a lot of the time in Europe, so it was special for everyone. I haven’t ridden in a World Cup Final in some years and I think Ohlala is very suited for the format, so I am making it a big priority to try to qualify. This is the first one that I have done, and my next one is in Toronto.”

Kraut and Farrington also have the Longines FEI World Cup™ Finals on their agendas for the coming season, and this week’s competition was great experience for both of their young horses. Kraut’s mount, Confu, is a nine-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Contact Me x Cambridge).

Speaking of Confu, Kraut noted, “I wasn’t really sure what to expect because I have never jumped him indoors. On Thursday, he jumped very well. I went medium in the jump-off tonight. He is not particularly quick; he is a little bit slow in the air, and he is still a little slow across the ground. My goal was to be double clear, and when I saw the line-up, my ultimate goal was to be third because I knew Ohlala and Creedance are for sure faster than he could be. I ended up getting lucky because Kent had one down. I was very happy with second, and I am very happy for Lauren and Lala.”

Laura Kraut and Confu

Commenting on his night with Creedance, a nine-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Lord Z x Notaris), Farrington stated, “I think he has made great progress. He is a very special horse, and I think every round he is getting better. I wasn’t able to really watch anybody go after the first one in the jump-off, and I heard Laura was clear and pretty quick, so I just tried to do a fast round. I was competing for the win, and you have one of the fastest indoor horses going last, so at that point I was just trying to do what I thought would be a very competitive round and put a lot of pressure on Lauren at the end of the class. I think with his experience I should have slowed down before the last line. It is a work in progress, but we are improving. I was disappointed with the result, but very happy with my horse.”

Kent Farrington and Creedance

Course designer Alan Wade was happy with the track he set for Saturday night and acknowledged that it is a challenging class to set.

“The horses come from the warm-up into the lights, and the crowd, and the razzmatazz,” Wade remarked. “I tried to build the track up, but problems appeared at certain fences that I was surprised at. I think it was fair. I think there were a lot of people that had an unlucky four faults and would feel that if they got a second chance at it they could have been clear too, but it’s down to the athletes and the horses at the end of the day. Whether the course was good or bad, they would have provided good sport and entertainment.”

WIHS President Vicki Lowell enjoyed both the night’s sport and entertainment, and thanked all of this year’s athletes for their great effort in making this event a success.

“I can’t thank the riders and the competitors enough. They put it all out there to put on a great show,” Lowell stated. “They stay late, they sign autographs. This is top sport, and to bring this top sport to the nation’s capital is a really special opportunity that we all have. I thank them for coming and being here for us and for the fans. The fans love it, and we are really happy to host everybody here.”

McLain Ward was honored with the inaugural George H. Morris Style of Riding Award, presented by ringmaster John Franzreb, Andrew Ramsay, George Morris, and WIHS President Vicki Lowell.

The George Morris Style of Riding Award was presented earlier in the day to USA’s McLain Ward. Created this year in honor of legendary horseman George H. Morris, the award goes to the International Jumper rider who best exemplifies the American style of equitation and jumping and the respectful, dignified, and workmanlike manner of a true sportsman.

Family and friends joined in a ceremony to honor Frank Chapot, who was inducted into the WIHS Hall of Fame,including: WIHS Manager David Distler, Beezie Madden, McLain Ward, Joe Fargis, WIHS President Vicki Lowell, Wendy Chapot, Laura Chapot, George Morris, Anne Kursinski, Robert Ridland, Laura Kraut, and Kent Farrington.

The U.S. Show Jumping Olympic Silver Medalists were honored in a special ceremony on Saturday night, including Beezie Madden, McLain Ward, Laura Kraut, Kent Farrington, and Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland.

Other celebrations included Frank Chapot’s induction into the WIHS Hall of Fame and a special ceremony to recognize U.S. Olympic Team Silver Medalists McLain Ward, Beezie Madden, and Kent Farrington, as well as traveling alternate Laura Kraut and Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland.

Hunter Holloway Wins WIHS Equitation Finals

The 2016 WIHS Equitation Finals concluded on Saturday evening with a win for Hunter Holloway (18), of Topeka, KS. Forty of the nation’s top junior riders qualified to compete in this year’s championship, which was held over three phases of competition. Riders began competing over a hunter course on Friday and returned over a jumper course Saturday afternoon. Their scores from the two rounds were then combined, and the top 10 competitors returned for a final work-off Saturday night, in which they switched horses and jumped the same course one more time.

Allen Rheinheimer of Zionsville, IN, set the courses for the equitation rounds. The judges were George Morris, Rob Bielefeld, Kitty Barker, and Danny Robertshaw.

Hunter Holloway and Any Given Sunday

Holloway led the competition through all three rounds of competition to secure her victory. She rode Hay Investment Corp.’s Any Given Sunday in the hunter and jumper phases, and switched onto Lucy Deslauriers’ mount Class Action, owned by Lisa Deslauriers, for the final work-off. Holloway and Any Given Sunday earned a score of 96 in their hunter round, combined with a 96.75 in the jumper round. Those scores were added to her 97 average from the two judging panels for her final work-with with Class Action for the winning score of 289.75.

Holloway was presented with the WIHS Equitation Classic Trophy, donated by Mr. and Mrs. G. Ralph Ours, III. Any Given Sunday was awarded The Lugano Memorial Trophy, donated by Stoney Hill, as the winning horse of the night.

“I am still a little bit in shock. It is an incredible feeling,” Holloway said after her win. “It is something I have worked very hard towards, and I have an amazing horse and an amazing team of people behind me. There are so many people involved. It is an incredible to be sitting here today with everyone.”

Holloway detailed her rounds, stating, “The hunter phase I was pretty comfortable going into. I had ridden in the ring earlier in the day on a couple of junior hunters, and I felt really confident on that horse. I was really happy with that performance, and then going into the jumper phase I was pretty nervous. Going in on top, you are always a little nervous I feel, but my horse was awesome and he took good care of me.”

Holloway has had Any Given Sunday, a 12-year-old Oldenburg gelding (by Indoctro), since he was five and ridden the horse in the WIHS Equitation Finals several times. Two years ago, she finished second in the final, and last year she placed third. She was determined to come back in her final junior year to get the win and was ready to get the job done. Holloway also had a great work-off riding a very experienced horse in the 17-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding Class Action (by Carano).

Hunter Holloway and Class Action

On switching onto the well-known gelding for her final round, Holloway noted, “I was pretty excited when I heard that I was getting on Class Action. That horse has been around for a while and he is always good, so it was a nice horse to have the privilege of riding. I was in shock a little bit when I came out of the ring. I was really nervous.”

Judge George Morris remarked on the class and Holloway’s winning characteristics.

“It was excellent. I was very honored to be asked to judge,” Morris stated. “The top of these finals, it is always incredible (to see) the position, the use of aids, and the execution. It is very important when you are judging to judge what you see and be as objective as possible.

“Hunter’s basics are so correct,” he continued. “Her angles; then you look for execution, accuracy. What separates the top ones, you can’t see it. It’s what is a dying art called invisible aids. The top ten were wonderful, but she won the class.”

Trainer Don Stewart also commented on Hollway’s win, noting, “She is always knocking at the door. She is a really hard worker and a great student. She is always on time, she doesn’t complain, she is always very gracious. I was real happy for her. It is nice to win one of these.”

Madison Goetzmann, of Skaneateles, NY, rode to a second place finish for the second year in a row. Goetzmann jumped her own horse Contelido to a score of 92.5 in the hunter phase and 96 in their jumper round. Goetzmann rode Taylor St. Jacques’ mount Charisma (owned by Heritage Farm) in the final work-off for a score of 94.5, bringing her three-round total to 283.

Lucy Deslauriers finished third with a 279.25 total. She scored 96 in both her hunter and jumper rounds with Class Action. She then scored an 87.25 in the final work-off aboard Holloway’s mount Any Given Sunday.

Goetzmann (16) won the $15,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic earlier in the day and got right back in the ring for her WIHS Equitation jumper round. She rode the same horse, Contelido, in last year’s final and was happy with her consistent rounds this time around.

“Last year I actually placed second in this final as well, and to be second again, I can’t complain about that,” Goetzmann stated. “It was a very well-deserved win by Hunter. My horse has been so great to me. He gives me so much confidence in the ring. I can go in and really trust him.

Madison Goetzmann and Charisma

“The same thing with the horse I switched on to,” Goetzmann said of Charisma. “I was a little nervous at first. You are always a little nervous switching onto a horse that you are not familiar with, but as soon as I went into the ring and jumped my first jump, I was able to breathe and finish a smooth round.”

Goetzmann’s equitation trainer, Stacia Madden, commented on her student’s finish, stating, “She had an unbelievable show all around. She had a great showing in the Junior Jumpers. She just exuded confidence to me this whole week. I did not see any nerves. Every time she went in the ring she was not only trying to deliver, but actually delivering. She was on the same horse here last year, but it was basically her second show on him last year. I felt coming back to this championship this year that it was really a super horse choice. She had developed a great relationship with the horse during the year, and I think that really showed round after round this week.”

Both Holloway and Goetzmann continue on to the CP National Horse Show in Kentucky next week to compete in the hunters, jumpers, and equitation. Saturday night concluded a fantastic 2016 Washington International Horse Show for both young riders.

Goetzmann and Michaels Capture Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classics

Madison Goetzmann guided her own Wrigley to victory earlier on Saturday in the $15,000 Show Jumping Hall of Fame High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic, presented by Staysail Farm. Seven out of 21 entries cleared Alan Wade’s (IRL) first round course to advance to the jump-off. Mallory Vale and Thinks Like a Horse’s Mi Phone finished fourth with a double clear round in 36.81 seconds. Alexandra Pielet and Co-Pielet LLC’s Helene Ve placed third with their time of 33.84 seconds. Katherine Strauss guided her own Capacity to second place honors in 32.68 seconds. Last to go, Goetzmann and Wrigley crossed the timers in 32.34 seconds to earn The Ambassador’s Cup Perpetual Trophy.

Madison Goetzmann and Wrigley

Goetzmann has had Wrigley, a 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare (by Padinus), for two years. After their win on Saturday, the pair tied for the High Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper division championship with barn mates Katherine Strauss and All In. Goetzmann and Wrigley also earned the honor in 2015, and Strauss and All In were the winners of the 2015 Classic. The riders dually accepted the Greenberg Challenge Trophy, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Hermen Greenberg, for this year’s success. They both train in New York with John and Beezie Madden and enjoy the friendly competition.

Speaking of her winning mount, Goetzmann stated, “Wrigley is an amazing horse. Really every show, we grow as a pair, and we have such a great partnership. She never lets me down. She always tries her hardest to be quick, and efficient, and keep all of the jumps up. She is an amazing horse.”
Goetzmann continued, “She is a little hot; she has some attitude. She likes you to have her up to the bit and make sure she doesn’t fall behind your leg. She doesn’t want to be helped. You need to let her go, let her gallop, and let her set herself. Once you learn how to ride her, and understand what kind of ride she wants, it is an easy ride.”

Goetzmann had the advantage of going last in the jump-off, but also knew that the jump-off track suited her horse well. She detailed, “First of all, I loved the jump-off course. As soon as I saw it, I knew that Wrigley was going to have an easy time going fast and turning tight. I knew that my barn mate Katherine was also a very quick rider, and I knew that I had to go in and be aggressive, but not too aggressive in the jump-off. Wrigley was amazing throughout the whole course, and we were able to just beat Katherine. This is my second time doing the High division here with Wrigley, and she knows the game.”

Katherine Strauss and Capacity

Strauss (17), of Southampton, NY, was the runner up all week, finishing second in both Thursday’s speed class and Friday’s time first jump-off with All In. She then settled for second again with Capacity on Saturday, but her consistent rounds paid off to tie for the division championship.

Champion mount, All In, is an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Aachen x Indoctro) that Strauss has ridden for three years. She described, “He is such an incredible horse, He has jumped so well for me all year, and I am just so fortunate that I get to come to indoors with him. He is a little bit of a hot horse, so I just try to stay very smooth and relaxed. He is very different from my horse Capacity. All In likes when you just stay out of his way and let him do his thing. He likes when you let him get close to the jumps, whereas Capacity likes to have a little bit more room at the front rails and he likes you to tell him what to do more.”

Madison Goetzmann and Wrigley, and Katherine Strauss (Capacity standing in for All In) in their joint championship presentation with ringmaster John Franzreb, WIHS Executive Director Bridget Love Meehan, and groom Georgi de Rham.

Although Goetzmann beat her this time, Strauss enjoys the camaraderie of competing and training with her friend and explained that they drive each other to do better.

“Beezie really sets the example for us, and Maddie and I really push each other and support each other at the same time, so it is so fun coming to these competitions together,” Strauss said.

The riders also train together with Stacia Madden in the equitation. They will continue to compete at the CP National Horse Show in Kentucky next week and then on to Florida for the winter.

Sophie Michaels and Darero

Earlier on Saturday, Sophie Michaels and Sweet Oak Farm’s Darero jumped to victory in the $7,500 Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Classic, sponsored by The Strauss Family. Twenty-two entries showed and five advanced to the jump-off, with four double clear rounds. Michaels and Darero were last to go over the short course with the fastest time of 31.59 seconds. Isabel Ryan and Heritage Farm, Inc.’s Levistano 2 were a very close second in 31.61 seconds. Beth Von Brecht and her own Melody placed third in 33.21 seconds, and Lauren Fischer and her own Norton de la Sapaie finished fourth in 34.02 seconds.

For the Classic win, Michaels was presented the Swan Lake Perpetual Trophy, donated by Beagle Brook Farm, in honor of 1992 winner Swan Lake ridden by Jennifer F. Miller. The Yale University freshman (18) from New York has shown at WIHS since she was ten years old on ponies and has ridden Darero, an eight-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (by Ginus), for less than one year.

“He has been so good. He is a really careful horse, and he is really game to go fast, which is fun,” Michaels detailed. “He is really competitive. He is sort of like a bouncing ball. You just have to go forward and then you are good. He is really adjustable. He wants momentum to the jump, but if you are going at the right speed he will do anything.”

Isabel Ryan and Levistano 2

Describing her winning jump-off round, Michaels stated, “I got to go last, which was for sure an advantage. I knew that Isabel was winning and it was clear and fast, so I knew that if I wanted any shot of winning I had to really go for it. It was a jump-off where you could do tight turns, and I just trusted my horse that he was going to be able to do what I asked of him.

“There was for sure an approach that we had to do at the first jump in order to leave out the stride because of the way the angle was,” Michaels added. “It was a jump-off that was a lot of single jumps, so it was really about the turns.”

Michaels and Ryan are also barn mates, both training with Andre Dignelli of Heritage Farm, and were cheering each other on for their one-two finish on Saturday.

Ryan’s second place finish, combined with a win in the opening speed class on Thursday, earned the Low Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Championship with her mount Levistano 2 and put their names on the Foxbrook Perpetual Trophy, donated by Joy Slater in honor of Space Citation. Beth Von Brecht and Melody’s points for a win in Friday’s time first jump-off and their third place finish on Saturday earned the reserve championship.

Ryan began showing Levistano 2, a 14-year-old Holsteiner gelding (by Levisto), in the jumpers last year and has developed a great partnership with the experienced horse known as “Levi” in the barn. Commenting on her week, Ryan smiled, “Levi was so good. I was a little nervous going into today because yesterday I was too tight to one jump, and I let him jump really high up, and then he had a rail. I wanted to make sure that I gave him the best ride that I could today and not put him into any iffy situations like I did yesterday.

“I knew I really wanted to go all out in the jump-off this time, especially since I didn’t make it in with my other horse,” Ryan continued. “I knew that I needed to step it up and do all the tight turns. I think Andre gave Sophie and I similar plans. We had to do that turn in the beginning to make sure we were direct in the six strides, which worked out well for Levi. I actually saw a five in the next line, which was amazing, and he was so good. He really stepped up and helped me through that line because it was long. He was really responsive today.”

Ryan (17), of Locust Valley, NY, showed at WIHS as a child on ponies as well, but missed three years as she was making the step up to horses and jumpers. Returning this year, and earning a championship, was a great result.

“It feels really good to be champion,” Ryan acknowledged. “I was a little nervous when Sophie was going so fast because I didn’t know how the points were going to break down, but I couldn’t ask for a better result. I got to share first and second with one of my barn mates and I still ended up champion. Levi and my other horse Billy (Abilitydance) were so good, so I could not have asked for it to turn out better than that.”

Lucy Deslauriers of New York, NY, was presented with the 2016 SHALANNO Style of Riding Award. The award is presented each year to the Junior Jumper rider who best exemplifies the American style of equitation and the respectful, dignified manner of a true sportsman.

The 2016 Washington International Horse Show concludes on Sunday with the presentation of championship honors in the Pony Hunter divisions as well as the WIHS Pony Equitation Finals and WIHS Regional Finals, sponsored by The Linden Group at Morgan Stanley. For full results, please visit
