The pair rode to a strong start with a 94-point score from the judges’ panel during the classic round, and further extended their lead with another high mark in the handy round to secure their title as champions.

Three months ago, 18-year-old Emanuel Andrade and recent mount Clouwni rode to the top of the $34,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic CSI3* during the Kentucky Spring Classic. Sunday, on the final day of the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show, Andrade mimicked his spring effort, riding to a 1-2 finish with Clouwni finishing at the pinnacle of the $40,000 Bluegrass Festival Grand Prix leader board, and claiming second place with veteran mount ZZ – Top VH Schaarbroek Z.

Out of a start list of 33 horse and rider combinations, only 13 were able to master Allen Rheinheimer’s opening track and continue onto the speed round. Andrade was the first to break the beam with one of three horses qualified for the jump-off. Using his own Boy IV to feel out the eight-obstacle track, riding to a four-fault score, Andrade planned his strategy for his following mounts.

“Last year, he definitely did it for me and boosted me back up and got me confident,” Boyd smiled. “This year, I did feel obligated to do it for him. I just really wanted to keep it together, and it was all for him.”

taraThe tides finally turned for Tara Gallagher Couch and her mount Apple Saturday morning in the High Amateur-Owner/Junior Jumper class at the 1.40m height, as the pair, who have unluckily fallen just a tad short of the win in previous classes, rode to the only clean round of the day to clinch the champion title at the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show.

“This is my first win with her, which is super exciting! We have been working towards it, and I have been in this four-fault place. We will have great rounds, but then I will just tick a rail. We have been waiting for a win and it finally happened today,” Gallagher Couch said with a smile.

For David Beisel, the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show holds incredible memories, yet there is one in particular that stands out for him. It was three years ago exactly that David Beisel and Ammeretto, owned by Equine Holdings, LLC, entered into only the second grand prix of their show jumping partnership during the week of the USHJA Hunter Derby Finals, and they won. Friday night, under the lights of the Rolex Stadium, it was déjà vu for Beisel as he entered into a 12-horse jump-off with the small but mighty warmblood stallion, winning the $25,000 Hagyard Lexington Classic, presented by Zoetis.
