The Ocala Horse Properties International Three-Day Festival is well underway at the Florida Horse Park, with the competition kicking off yesterday with Future and Young Event Horse classes. Thehorsepesterer was on the scene to bring us behind the scenes with videos of these talented youngsters.
Bethany Hutchins-Kristen and Geluk HVF won the 5-year-old YEH class on a final score of 78.99%. This horse, a Dutch Warmblood gelding by Jazz out of the Contango mare Bronte HVF, finished seventh in the 4-year-Old YEH East Coast Championships at Fair Hill last fall. Bethany also still actively competes the dam, Bronte HVF; they most recently finished fifth in an Intermediate division at Rocking Horse earlier this month.
We also have great videos of Debbie Adams and D.A. Got Game, who finished second on 78.19%. The Holsteiner gelding is by Cascani out of Uwita OHF. Shanon Baker and Carlingford Wells finished third on 78.13% and had the highest jumping score in the class. The Irish Sport Horse gelding is by the Thoroughbred stallion Clerkenwell out of Belleville Diamond, an Irish Sport Horse mare.
