SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO — Four weeks of riveting competition came to a close April 15 as the Blenheim Spring Classic IV wrapped up the 2017 Blenheim Spring Series. Part of the closing celebrations included the Veredus Leading Jumper Rider Awards, presented to the riders who accumulated the most points on their highest placing horses throughout the month-long series.

Michelle Parker took the jumper ring by storm during the of the Blenheim Spring Series and won the Veredus Leading Professional Jumper Rider Award. Her first place finish during the Spring Classic II in the $25,000 Markel Insurance Grand Prix, plus another blue and other solid placings in the Spring Classic III Open Welcome and Speed Derby, put her squarely at the top of the professional leader board with an unbeatable total of 31 points.

“The horses had some super results this Spring,” Parker said. “Doriena won her first grand prix, Vancouver won and Cupilor was second in a 1.40m Jumper Classic, Caramel and El Guapo each won a class and the young horses did well. I have them to thank for helping me win the Leading Pro Award, and Veredus to thank for presenting.”

It was Natalie Dean who topped the field of riders in the 1.40m Jr/AO Jumper division with 36 points. Dean won all three classes during the Spring Classic IV and finished third in the classic. She secured the Veredus 1.40m Leading Jr/AO Jumper Rider Award for her efforts.

In the 1.30m Jr/AO Jumper division, Hannah Loly emerged victorious with a total of 32 points accumulated throughout Spring Classics I and II. Loly impressively earned the Veredus 1.30m Leading Jr/AO Jumper Rider Award at just 14 years old.

“I’m excited for a great summer of showing, I had a blast this Spring!” Loly exclaimed. “It’s fun to earn a Leading Jumper Rider award, the recognition and prizes mean a lot.”
The Veredus 1.20m Leading Jr/AO Jumper Rider Award went to Jessica Petro for the large sum of 40 points she earned during just the first two weeks of the Series.

Though sitting second in points going into the fourth week, Tara Brown Stocks edged out competitors for the Veredus Leading Adult Jumper Rider Award by winning two classes and the classic during the Spring Classic IV. Eric Krawitt clinched the Veredus Leading Children’s Jumper Rider Award for his efforts in the Children’s Jumper division, finishing with two blue ribbons and a third in the classic this week.
