AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Michelle Riggs
Competition in the 2010 Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series grew more intense in the month of May. Following standout performances in the West Conference, rider Richard Neal was named the Rider of the Month for the month of May. Classes continue to be in full swing in both the East and West Conferences, and riders are active in earning points on the Series' overall standings.
Richard Neal of Pasadena, CA, competes in the Series' West Conference Junior division with his mount Cavalier Tommi Tank. Earning 260 points, Neal was named the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Rider of the Month for the month of May. This competitive horse-and-rider combination had a pair of impressive performances earning a second-place finish at the Woodside Spring Preview followed by a first-place finish at the Memorial Day Classic.
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.
"We are honored to present Richard with this award," said Philippe Collard, President of Cavalor, Inc. "Richard is a dedicated competitor, and we wish him the best of luck as the Series continues."
The Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series saw competition at 19 events during the month of May, and will see classes at more than 100 horse shows before the Series culminates in the Year-End Championships at the National Horse Show in November.
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 May, Charlie Jacobs and Quidditch II led the amateur-owner standings in the East Conference while Reed Kessler and Ligist held on to the lead in the junior division. Josephina Nor-Lantzman and Chello Z led the amateur-owner standings in the West Conference while Jasmine Wiggins and Little Milton led in the junior division.
