MEAGANIt took precise riding and a talented mount to be at the top of the standings during today’s $75,000 Commonwealth Grand Prix at the Kentucky Spring Horse Shows. Richard Jeffery’s challenging track yielded only two clear rounds, but set the stage for a speedy jump-off between Meagan Nusz and Reed Kessler. Nusz had all the answers aboard Dynamo to capture the top honors. The duo clocked in just fractions ahead of Kessler, who was also double clear over the short course with Mika to place second. 

The first round course for this week’s highlight event bested all but two of the 40 competitors that gathered at the Rolex Stadium. Two of the most challenging areas proved to be a vertical-oxer double combination bending line to an open water, that was followed by another oxer, as well as a triple bar-vertical-oxer triple combination to a steady vertical. Meagan Nusz was the second rider on course and the first to advance to the jump-off with Dynamo, owned by Amalaya Investments of Houston, TX.

Five days of top-rated hunter competition came to a close today as the Kentucky Spring Horse Show awarded its final hunter championships in the Junior and Children’s Hunter divisions. Leaving the Kentucky Horse Park with the championship tricolor in the Children’s Hunter 14 and Under division was rider Jane Brooks and her mount Lifeline.

Brooks, a Cincinnati, OH native, always enjoys making the relatively short trip from home to horse show at the Kentucky Horse Park and this weekend was no exception – and with good reason. Brooks and Lifeline came in to the day with a first and third place finish over yesterday’s Children’s Hunter 14 and Under courses, and they earned a score of 84 and the blue ribbon over today’s first course before being awarded the division championship honors.
