Beat Mändli (SUI) and Simba, owned by Grant Road Partners LLC, flew to the win of the first grand prix of the season.

There were 37 entries in the Sunday afternoon grand prix, competing over a course set by Eric Hasbrouck of the United States. Only six found the key to a clear round and returned for a jump-off.

First in was Mändli on Simba, owned by Grant Road Partners LLC. As one of three clear rounds, they set an unbeatable time of 37.539 seconds to secure victory.

“I think he’s naturally a fast horse, he’s a really blood horse, he wants to go,” Mändli said of his quick second round. “I don’t need to force him to go forward; it’s basically just braking. He did the two turns very well to the wall and everything came together.”

This is the pair’s third season together. After a full schedule of European competition last summer, Simba rested for three months leading into the winter circuit.

“That’s his first coming out, and he actually surprised me a little bit because he was really honest and he really wanted to do it today,” said Mändli of the 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding by Toulon x Argentinus. “He made my job real easy for today, and it wasn’t the goal to win today. I just tried to have a good round, or two good rounds, and it turned out like this which makes me very happy. It’s a good start for the season.”

Daniel Coyle (IRL) and Ariel Grange’s Farrel were the only ones to come close to Mändli’s time, finishing clear in 37.769 seconds for second place.

Coyle, who has been riding Farrel for three years, was pleased with the nine-year-old KWPN gelding’s move up to a higher level. “He’s really proven to me and everyone else that he deserves to be jumping this level because he can. I think after today there’s good things to come,” he said.

Taking it slower and counting on a clear round were Tiffany Foster (CAN) on Donjo, another Ariel Grange-owned entry. They stopped the timers in 44.64 seconds for third place.

“After I watched Beat’s round I knew I had no chance, so I decided at that point I knew there had been a few people with a pole down and I knew Daniel was coming behind me on a super-fast horse and is a super-fast rider, so I thought I would kind of hedge my bets and be double clear,” explained Foster. “My horse is very, very careful so it’s usually a pretty good gamble to try and go that way.

“I could use his stride in a few places, but I was only seven seconds slower than these guys, so pretty close,” she joked.

For her consistent success at WEF 1, Foster was presented with the Martha Jolicoeur Leading Lady Award, presented in memory of Dale Lawler.

Slotting into fourth place with four faults in a time of 39.122 seconds was Adrienne Sternlicht (USA) on Quidam MB, owned by Starlight Farms LLC. Kristen Vanderveen (USA) and Bull Run’s Faustino de Tili were fifth with 14 faults in 52.012 seconds, and Kevin Babington (IRL) placed sixth with 15 faults in 49.803 seconds.

“This year’s class was incredible,” said Daniel Rosenbaum, Managing Shareholder of Rosenbaum PLLC. “The number of entrants was great, the weather was wonderful, and the riders did a great job this early in the season. It’s going to be a very, very good season and you’re going to have very good competitions. It’s going to be an amazing year and I really look forward to it.”

Hunter Riders Wrap Up Week 1 of the Winter Equestrian Festival with Tina Allen Securing Victory in the Hunt Ltd. Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’6” 36+

On the final day during the opening week of the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival, the Hunt Limited Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’6” 36+ wrapped up competition in the Equine Tack & Nutritionals Ring. Returning for the flat phase and two additional over fences classes, Tina Allen of New Canaan, CT, accumulated 24 points to claim the championship title.

Already in good standing with a first place, a seventh, and eighth place, and a third in the under saddle, Allen piloted her self-owned grey gelding, Sinatra, to a win in the stake class. The victory was enough to push the pair into the lead just several points over Krysia Nelson who took home the reserve championship. Nelson finished the division on a total of 19 points aboard Cobham Park.

Allen purchased the coming seven-year-old Westphalian gelding (Last Man Standing x Lovely) two years ago and she has been bringing the young horse up through the divisions with their current division as the goal.

“My hope when I purchased him was to eventually be doing this class with him,” Allen said. “Last season it all really clicked, and he started in the conformation classes at the 3’3” height, then about halfway through the circuit we moved him up to the 3’6”.”

While she hopes to once again qualify for the Devon Horse Show that takes place in the spring, Allen has been calling Wellington her winter horse show destination for 10 years and plans to continue to return.

“The warm weather is obviously a huge draw for me because I am from the north and the winters are so brutal, but it is also just a really great place to bring along young horses or keep your seasoned horses sharp,” she said of WEF. “The competition here is the best of the best so to compete and have a win here is special because you’re competing against some really incredible horses and riders.”
