Nupafeed Weekend Winners: HPNJ, Chatt Hills, Cobblestone Farms

Our friend Samantha Clark was out and about at the Horse Park of New Jersey Horse Trials this weekend, and I wanted to share her thoughtful observations on Lauren Kieffer and her veteran, now 18 year old partner, Veronica. Lauren brought the mare, with whom she’s traveled the world and completed 25 FEI events, back into competition form this year after an injury sidelined her in 2018. While Lauren says she’s just enjoying the ride with “Troll,” who is owned by Team Rebecca LLC and the Broussard family, it’s clear that the mare would rather be doing this job than anything else in the world. Keep on keepin’ on, girlfriend — we’re here to cheer you on the whole way.

This weekend, we saw some hot competition for the lowest overall finishing score. I was all set to award it to Booli Selmayr and Urania, who won the Open Prelim at New Jersey on a final score of 21.5, but then Erin Walker and Zydeco Nights waltzed in and won their Novice division at Chatt Hills on a 20.0. Well done, Erin!

Let’s hear it for the rest of this weekend’s winners!
