Strong Field Lines Up for 2013 Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals West

RELEASE: September 18, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: USEF Communications Deparment

Lexington, Kentucky- The 2013 Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals West kicks off this week at the prestigious Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank, California. The prominent competition will once again showcase the top rising talent the West Coast has to offer. Mandy Porter and Jimmy Torano will serve as judges and course designers for the four-phase competition which will be held September 19-21.

Competition officially gets underway on Thursday as 35 entries complete their flatwork in the Large Oval during Phase I. The following day, competitors will head to the Equidome for Phase II, gymnastics. The winner will be crowned on Saturday following the completion of Phases III and IV. In Phase III, all entries will show their ability over a jumper-styled course on the Cricket Field and, following its conclusion, the top four competitors will be called back for a ride-off. Phase IV will showcase the same format used for the Show Jumping World Championships, with each rider completing a course on his/her own horse, as well as the three other riders’ horses.

The Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search boasts a roster of graduates that include multiple Olympic, FEI World Equestrian and Pan American Games medalists. This year’s field includes many riders that have already garnered top honors in prestigious competitions in their young careers. Olivia Champ (La Canada Flintridge, California) rode to second-place honors in last year’s Finals and will look to go one better in 2013. Additionally, Hannah Von Heidegger (Chatsworth, California) has enjoyed a successful 2013 season, which included earning a Team Silver medal at the summer’s Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North, and will try to add a Finals victory to her resume.
