- Elizabeth Faraci, of Annapolis, MD, topped the Sylvester Center Adult Amateur 36-50 Hunter division on Sunday morning at the FTI WEF with Posh. At just five years old, Posh bested a field of experienced horses with two wins over fences and a second place finish in the hack.
 
The reserve champion for the division was Sea Walker, owned and ridden by Nicole Oliynyk. Oliynyk and Sea Walker were sixth, fifth, sixth, and first over fences and first under saddle to secure the reserve champion title.
 
Faraci bought Posh, a five-year-old Warmblood gelding by Christ, at the end of last year and was thrilled that her young horse has taken so well to the show ring.
 
"This was his first show," Faraci revealed. "He's just turning five, so I couldn't be more pleased with him! He's just adorable. He went right around yesterday and today, and I really can't say enough about him. He's the real thing, I hope."

The atmosphere of the PBIEC showgrounds can be a lot for any horse to handle, much less a five-year-old that had yet to step foot in a show ring. "I was really worried, but he kind of put my fears to rest yesterday when he just marched in the ring and marched around. He was totally focused," Faraci explained.
 
Hunter competition for week nine of the FTI WEF, presented by The Bainbridge Companies, concluded on Sunday afternoon following Faraci's victory. Competition for week ten of the FTI WEF, presented by Horseware Ireland, will kick off on March 12. For full results, please visit www.showgroundslive.com.
