AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Michelle Riggs
Competition in the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series continued during the month of September. Even with the summer competition schedule coming to a close, many horse shows featured Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series classes, making it an intense race for the September Rider of the Month.
With Cavalor's support, the series honors one rider each month as the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series Rider of the Month. The honor goes to the one rider who earns the most points on one horse in series competition that month.
With 175 points earned aboard her mount Hannah, Lucy Davis of Los Angeles, CA, was named as Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Rider of the Month for the month of September. Davis competes in the Series' West Conference junior division, and finished in second place with Hannah during the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series classes held at the Blenheim Fall Tournament and in third at the LA International Jumping Festival.
"Lucy and Hannah showed their consistency throughout the month of September," said Philippe Collard, President of Cavalor, Inc. "They were able to perform at some of the best horse shows on the West Coast and finish in the top three. I am happy to name Lucy as our September Rider of the Month!"
The Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series saw competition at nine events during the month of September, and will see classes at more than 100 horse shows before the series culminates in the year-end championships at the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament featuring the 126th National Horse Show in Syracuse, NY, in October.
The series hosts separate divisions for junior and amateur-owner riders in two Conferences—the East Conference and the West Conference. Series standings are used to help determine junior and amateur-owner entries for the National Horse Show.
In the overall standings through September, Lisa Goldman and Centurion B led the amateur-owner standings in the East Conference while Victoria Birdsall and Jerremy led in the junior division. In the West, Josephina Nor led in the amateur-owner division with Chello Z, while Jocelyn Neff led in the junior division with Blue Shot Baco.
