Wellington, Fla. - 
Lili Hymowitz could not be beat Sunday morning in the Large Junior Hunter 15 & Under division, presented by Greenspoon Marder Law, at the FTI WEF. Hymowitz walked away with division champion and reserve champion honors with her mounts Statement and Tiffani, respectively.
 
Hymowitz and Statement, a seven-year-old Westphalian gelding, won three out of the five classes for the division. The pair picked up wins in two over fences classes and the under saddle in addition to collecting sixth and third place ribbons over fences.
 
Tiffani, a 10-year-old Holsteiner mare, won the handy round on the first day of competition over fences before finishing second in two other over fences rounds and fifth in the under saddle class.

Fourteen-year-old Hymowitz, of New York, NY, picked up division champion and reserve champion titles with both mounts over the fall and was happy to see both horses return to the show ring happy after a well-deserved vacation following the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, KY.
 
"Towards the end of indoors, they were starting to get tired. Now they're back and refreshed," Hymowitz recounted. "It's so nice to be back in Florida. I've gotten used to riding in little indoor [arenas]-I haven't shown outside since the Hampton Classic [in August]."
 
Of her champion mount, Statement, Hymowitz described "He's pretty straight-forward. You just have to make sure you keep going forward! One thing he likes to do is start slowing down and get a little backwards, but he's so fun and amazing. He wants to win as badly as I do!"
 
Hymowitz described Statement as a "get on and go" ride, but highly values Tiffani's adjustability on course.
 
"With Tiffani, I don't have to worry because she's so adjustable since she used to be a jumper. If I see the slow [distance], I'll do the slow one, but with Statement, you just have to stay the same pace. I try not to touch him!" Hymowitz admitted.

Hymowitz was thrilled with her one-two finish in the division and looks forward to competing Statement and Tiffani again at the FTI WEF, although they'll be getting plenty of well-deserved time off.
