HUNTINGTON BEACH — Independence Day was a hit at the beach, especially for rider Kristin Hardin on Bert, who captured Saturday’s $25,000 GGT Footing Grand Prix, presented by S&S Bankcard Systems, at the Huntington Beach Surf Classic July 3-6.

The pair’s jump-off time of 28.841 edged Lane Clarke on Kiss The Sky, owned by Horsemanship Unlimited, who came in at 29.106.

“The horses jumped so great,” said Hardin, who put the pedal to the metal in crunch time. “You can really take a shot when the footing is that perfect in the jump-off.”

In another signature event, the Grand Prix Hunter Derby presented by Villas at Rancho Valencia, Jamie Taylor and Patton, owned by Marion Lowry, finished first with a score of 173. Nicole Kane riding Samba Gracious, owned by Heidi Kane, were second with 168.

Sponsors of the show also included Mallard Creek, who sponsored the Modified Junior/AO Jumper Classic, Windsong Farm who sponsored the Low Child/Adult Jumper Classic, L.A. Saddlery and CWD, sponsors of the Children’s/Adult Hunter Classic. Kristy Miller of Black Star Equestrian sponsored the Child/Adult Jumper Classic (1.10M).

“We’re already looking forward to our Huntington Beach Summer Classic and excited to see everyone back at the beautiful Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center!,” said Ashley Harlin of West Palms Events of next month’s surfside competition Aug 7-10. “It’s sure to be bigger than ever, and we have some very special events planned for exhibitors and their families.”
