Trolli Closes Out HITS Ocala With a Win

SBS Farms, Inc., wrapped up their final week in Ocala with a fantastic weekend. The young talent, Alex Trolli, rode Del Piero to the 3'3" Junior Hunter championship. 

Jennifer Alfano and Susie Schoellkopf have packed their trunks and headed to Katy, Texas, for the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show, while Alicia Heberle and Trolli stayed behind to finish the HITS IX Ocala Winter Celebration. They wrapped up the Florida circuit in top form.

Trolli rode Hey Sailor to good ribbons over fences and finished in the ribbons for the Junior 3’3” Hunter Classic. She returned to the ring with her own Del Piero to finish second over fences, win the handy and capture third place in the under saddle. They were awarded the division championship for their efforts.
