The SBS Farms team enjoyed two weeks at the World Equestrian Center Winter Classics 7 and 8, taking home many blue ribbons and championships. The shows were held from February 6-17, in Wilmington, Ohio.
“I want to thank Randi Byrd, Olivia and Emma Walters for a great two weeks in Ohio,” said SBS Farms trainer Susie Schoellkopf. “Sarah Rodwin and Dexter (Stainless) were stars in the jumpers. Stephanie Brennan and Abundance were champion both weeks. Randi and Hey Sailor were consistent, and Katrina Hora and her mare Bella (Pretty Victory) got better and better for two weeks with really nice ribbons!”
Emma and Crisp continued their momentum from 2018, as they picked up more accolades together. The pair earned the 3’3” Large Junior Hunter Championship during WEC 7, the 3’3” Junior Hunter Championship during WEC 8 and won the Junior Hunter Classic that week!
Emma and Stardust also earned Junior Hunter tricolor honors, winning two classes during WEC 7.
Stephanie Brennan also added tricolor ribbons to the SBS banner with her Abundance. They earned the Non-Pro Hunter championship both weeks, with five blue ribbons and multiple others over fences and under saddle.
Stephanie posted on Facebook: “Thank you Susan, Randi, Emma and Olivia for a great two weeks in Ohio! Cinco was champion of the division both weeks! What a wonderful experience and fantastic venue. Thanks to John for going with me and doing a lot of driving!”
Katrina Hora and Pretty Victory also picked up excellent ribbons in the Non-Pro Hunters both weeks, with many primary colors.
Sarah Rodwin and Equine Couture’s Stainless captured excellent ribbons in the Intermediate Children’s/Adult Jumpers, while Randi Byrd guided Stainless to blue ribbons in the Schooling Jumpers. Randi also piloted Hey Sailor to ribbons in the USHJA Hunter sections.
“The WEC shows are really, really nice,” said Susie. “We’ll be back!”
