Tuesday morning marked the highly-anticipated commencement of the 2018 USEF Pony Finals, presented by Collecting Gaits Farm, at the Kentucky Horse Park, with nearly 200 ponies and their junior riders taking center stage in the first two divisions of the week. The most celebrated event of its kind for pony riders in the United States, the USEF Pony Finals is a three-phase competition judging the pony’s conformation, way of moving and jumping ability. After the first two rounds of competition for the Large Regular Pony Hunters, Kat Fuqua and Brighton emerged as the early leaders by impressively earning blue ribbons in both the model and hack ahead of 146 fellow contenders. Besting the field in the Small Green Pony Hunters, Clara Propp and With Love will ride last over fences Wednesday as the initial frontrunners in their division.

Large ponies took over the Claiborne Ring on Thursday at the Kentucky Horse Park, concluding competition with the USEF Large Pony Medal, where 13-year-old Lourdes Low bested 21 entries to capture the victory with Agnes Hahn’s Splendid. Second place was awarded to Madison Moore and Watchusayin, while Katherine Fason and A Blond Moment finished third.

Bobby Murphy’s course proved difficult for many young riders, starting with a trot fence and including a double combination as well as a halt before the final fence. Low and the 11-year-old Welsh gelding rode to the winning round as they prepare ahead of next week’s USEF Pony Finals at the Kentucky Horse Park. Low will be returning for her third year at the annual championship, but it will be her first year with Splendid and her first year in the Large Pony division.

The class today saw several riders that had multiple mounts, including Vale, who also rode Darling GR and Da Vinci. The competitor was able to draw on his past performances with the 13-year-old Oldenburg mare to make a crucial inside turn that no other competitor attempted during the jump off, which ended up giving him the edge over Granato, who also rode three horses in the class.

The second week of showing at the Kentucky Summer Series will continue Wednesday with hunter and jumper competition at the Kentucky Horse Park. Show jumping competitors will have the opportunity to earn points for the Hagyard Challenge Series as well as the Envisian Leading Riders Award that is presented at the end of each week of competition.
