Beautiful, sunny skies, inviting hunter courses and top levels of competition greeted riders at the Kentucky Horse Park for the first day of the Kentucky Summer Horse Show. The Green Hunters kicked off the competition in the Stonelea Ring, where Colleen Acosta and Kelley Farmer each earned blue ribbons, while Molley Sewell dominated the Green Conformation Hunters. Shawn Casady and Ascot wrapped up the day with wins in the High Performance Hunters, while Kelly Mullen and Donato scored top calls in the Performance 3’6” Hunter division.

Kelley Farmer took home the first blue ribbon of the day in the Green Hunters riding Skorekeeper, owned by Larry Glefke and the Quail Run Partnership of Keswick, VA. The victory in the second round went to Colleen Acosta, riding with Limbo, owned by Sophia DePumpo of South Lake, TX.

“Skorekeeper has been fantastic,” Farmer shared. “Every time that he goes, he just gets better and better. He’s becoming more and more made and more straightforward all the time.”

MargieScope and stride proved to be the key to the win for Margie Engle and Royce during the $75,000 Mary Rena Murphy Grand Prix, presented by Audi of Lexington, during the Kentucky Spring Classic. The pair out jumped 12 other horse and rider combinations during the tiebreaker to claim the winning prize with a double clear effort. Charlie Jayne captured the second place award with Chill R Z, while Venezuela’s Pablo Barrios galloped into third aboard Zara Leandra. 

Forty-four entries showed over Conrad Homfeld’s opening course, which featured multiple bending lines, an open water with a scored pole, a steady vertical-oxer double combination, and an oxer-vertical-oxer triple combination that proved to be the bogey.
