Julie Spectators gathered on shaded picnic benches as they looked onward to the NAL/WIHS Adult Hunter Classic in the Murphy Ring at the Kentucky Horse Park on the third day of the Kentucky Summer Horse Show. They watched as the top amateur riders went against one another, showcasing their mount’s talents as they vied for the top honors. It was Julie Holzberger and Revealed who took on the Classic with a vengeance, winning the prestigious title with an overwhelming 10-point difference. Their high scoring second round set a bar no other participant could reach.

The NAL/WIHS Adult Hunter Classic consisted of two courses designed by Joe Carnicom. Each round was made up of natural obstacles, and a challenging vertical-vertical-oxer combination set down the inside of the Murphy Ring. Rachel Boggus and Cassino Z, from Toledo, OH, set the bar for other competitors with an impressive score of 85 in the first round, but it was Julie Holzberger and Revealed who overtook the competition with an 86 point score over the second course.

PaigeThunderstorms plagued the Kentucky Horse Park as riders gathered beneath the lights of the Rolex Stadium to compete in the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic at the Kentucky Summer Horse Show. Paige Johnson proved to be the best of the best, controlling the jump-off with one of only seven double-clear efforts aboard Chiron S to lead the victory gallop. Shane Sweetnam and Danielle Goldstein also tackled the short course, but their times could not catch Johnson’s speed, each placed second and third, respectively.

Marina Azevedo designed tonight’s course, using obstacles such as a vertical-oxer-vertical triple combination, bending lines, an oxer-oxer double combination, a triple bar, roll backs and tight turns. The jump-off allowed 47 seconds for horse and rider to break the beam, using a serpentine path to guide them to the finish. Starting over the first oxer and making a right to a vertical, riders then took a standalone red-and-white vertical to the oxer-oxer double combination. Upon landing, they were in full gear, racing against the seconds as they maneuvered over the SSG Digital Riding Gloves vertical and finished over the final oxer.
