The Kentucky Spring Horse Show concluded a week of action packed hunter and jumper competition today at the Kentucky Horse Park. Although today was the last day of competition, there was no shortage of excitement in Rolex Stadium. Under perfect blue skies, Sarah Segal and Cantara 59 won the $40,000 Commonwealth Grand Prix presented by Audi of Lexington, while Lacey Gilbertson and Baloppi topped the Under 25 Grand Prix presented by Hollow Creek Farm.

Cantara 59 has been part of Segal’s string of show horses for two years but Segal has been taking her time with the 11-year-old Hanoverian mare making sure they had a solid parternship in place before heading to the show ring. Segal made the decision to only compete Cantara 59 in select CSI2* Grand Prix classes at the end of the Winter Equestrian Festival and chose to come to the Kentucky Spring Horse Show as her first show of the 2017 summer competition season. The pair went towards the midpoint of the class which featured 43 horses and riders. After jumping a tidy clear round, they returned as part of a field of 12 in the jump off on Sunday afternoon.

The French flag was flying proudly over the Rolex Arena on Saturday night as Eric Navet and Catypso were victorious in the $130,000 CSI3* Grand Prix presented by Hollow Creek Farm. The pair, who have traveled to Kentucky from their home in California, bested a field of 51 athletes to take home the top prize after a double clear effort. Hollow Creek Farm’s own Emanuel Andrade came in a very close second place with Bon Jovi, while Sharn Wordley and Casper rounded out the top three placings.
 

Navet has been waiting for the perfect course and right venue to let his mount put all the lessons he has learned over the past few years to work. The Rolex Arena provided that perfect platform for the 10-year-old Hanoverian gelding to show his competitiveness at the Grand Prix level. The pair went early in the order of go and posted the first clear round of the night over a course designed by Marina Azevedo.

Receiving a perfect score and winning all five classes in the Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’3 36+ division, Brad Wolf and Libretto were the uncontested champions Saturday afternoon at the Kentucky Horse Show. The pair commanded both days of hunter competition with ease and graciously received the Grand A/O Hunter Championship title, sponsored by Visse Wedell of Wedell Real Estate.

On Friday, scores of 86 and 87 in the two over fences rounds secured their early lead, in addition to placing first in the Under Saddle class. Returning for the second day of competition Wolf proved his consistency and continued his domination of the show ring, scoring a 74 over fences and 86 in the handy round.
