Awesome Amateurs: Laura Linback & Casino
July 15, 2011
Stopped by HITS Culpeper today to watch some jumpers... and saw some great performances on an unseasonably nice (i.e. not unbearably hot) summer day.
One star of the day was Laura Linback, who rode Casino to first place in the high amateur/owner jumper class.
A well deserved pat for Casino, a 2002 Holsteiner gelding by Casco owned by Woodrun, in Mundelein, Illinois. The pair have had a great year so far, winning several classes in Ocala, at Showplace, and now Culpeper.
Second place in the junior/a/o jumper class went to KT Champ, ridden by Hasbrouck Donovan. The 2000 bay gelding is owned by Michael Kirby, of Madison, Connecticut.
What fine form!
