The Amateur-Owner divisions wrapped up in the Stonelea Ring on Saturday with the Grand Amateur-Owner Hunter Champion being awarded to the rider who acquired the most points over the course of competition on Friday and Saturday. The divisions saw a high number of entries, but despite the tough competition, it was Stephanie Danhakl and Enough Said who captured the top award at the Kentucky Spring Horse Show.

Danhakl and Enough Said have been a team for five years and their experience showed during Friday and Saturday’s competition. The pair accumulated scores in the high eighties during Friday’s Amateur-Owner 3’3” Hunter division and they remained consistent in Saturday’s competition as well. During the first round of the division the pair were the only competitors to receive a score in the nineties, which put them in a good position to claim the Grand Amateur-Owner Hunter Champion title.

The Grand Amateur-Owner Hunter Champion award is presented each year by Visse Wedell. Wedell has been a continuous great supporter of the Kentucky Horse Shows by sponsoring grand championship prizes in multiple divisions every year.

Hunter competition will continue in the Stonelea Ring on Sunday beginning at 7:45 a.m. with the Junior Hunters. The highlight of the day will be the USHJA National Hunter Derby and the USHJA International Hunter Derby immediately following.

FROM THE WINNER’S CIRCLE

Stephanie Danhakl – Amateur Owner Hunter Grand Champion

On Enough Said:
“I’ve had Enough Said for almost five years now. We just clicked right from the beginning. He really is the easiest horse in the world. He is such a sweetheart that really just loves his job. He always gives me 100%. He can sometimes get a little nervous in the schooling ring, but we have such a good relationship that I really know how to help him through it. When he goes in the ring though he is a total force to be reckoned with. Pretty much every time I’ve shown him he’s been champion. Overall he is just such a sweet horse.”

On winning Grand Hunter Champion at the Kentucky Spring Horse Show:

“We come to this show every year and it’s always one that I really look forward to, especially getting ready for Devon. The [Kentucky Horse Park] is such a beautiful venue and always really stiff competition with great horses and great riders so it’s a real honor for me to win Grand Hunter Champion at this horse show.”
