Kansas City, Mo.
– A talented field of competitors entered the Kemper Arena on Saturday, November 16, in hopes of winning the USEF Saddle Seat Medal Final at the United Professional Horsemen's Association (UPHA) American Royal National Championship. The judging panel comprised of Kim Cowart (Statesville, N.C.), Sandra Currier (Bellville, Texas) and Cecile Hetzel Dunn (Weirsdale, Fla.) unanimously declared Jessica Wuesthofen the champion. The Verona, Wis., native received the Gold medal after demonstrating her excellent equitation skills aboard Michelle Werry’s CH EQ Chanti’s Prayer both on the rail and during pattern work. By winning the USEF Saddle Seat Medal Final, she claimed the Saddle Seat Equitation Triple Crown after winning the National Horse Show "Good Hands" Final in October and the UPHA Challenge Cup earlier last week.

As the 2013 USEF Saddle Seat Medal Final Champion, Wuesthofen will have her name engraved on the Adrian Van Sinderen Trophy, alongside a prestigious list of prior winners dating back to 1937, as well as, the Helen K. Crabtree Perpetual Bronze.

Nadine Van Zomeren (Leighton, Iowa) claimed the Reserve Champion title with Mark and Renae Van Zomeren’s Heirronic. With a solid performance in front of the judges, Van Zomeren was awarded the USEF Silver medal.

The Bronze medal was awarded to Courtney McGinnis (Fishers, Ind.) riding CH EQ Kiss of the Zodiac owned by Fish Creek Stables LLC.

As the youngest rider in the final, 13-year-old Grace Allison (Ringoes, N.J.) was presented a model horse from Breyer Animal Creations.
