Jennifer Reid and Bainbridge Farms’ Sweet Emotion Win Championship at Autumn in New York Horse Show

Syracuse, NY – October 16, 2006 – At the Autumn in New York Horse Show on September 29-October 1, 2006, at the New York State Fairgrounds Coliseum, Jennifer Reid piloted Sweet Emotion for Bainbridge Farm and Richard Schechter to the championship in the Pre-Green Hunters.

It was their first show together, but the talented black mare jumped to second and fifth place ribbons and won the under saddle class. Their top ribbons gave them the championship in the division. Reid has only ridden the horse for a few weeks, and she will be the new owner of Sweet Emotion.

Schechter of Bainbridge Farm in Wellington, FL, bought Sweet Emotion from a private family in Saratoga, NY. “He really liked her,” Reid explained. “She doesn’t have much show experience, but she’s a great mover, a good jumper, and she has a really good mind. She’s so sweet and doesn’t have any bad habits.”

Reid, who rides with Gary Duffy of Little Brook Farm in Ithaca, NY, plans to go slow with the mare. “I want to bring her along,” she noted. “She’s really talented and is going to be a super horse. I hope she’ll excel and be successful.”

Sweet Emotion will be the first horse that Reid has owned herself. “It’s my first purchase, so I had a lot of scrutiny and wanted to choose the right horse.”

Reid plans to bring Sweet Emotion to Indoors at Harrisburg to get her more experience at shows, but the mare will not compete until later this year at the Littlewood Horse Show series in Florida. She also plans to show at the Winter Equestrian Festival in the Pre-Green Hunters, with the possibility of moving up to the First Year Green Hunters. “I don’t want to overdo it with her,” Reid acknowledged. “It depends on her progression. She’s got enough scope to go all the way and be a really special horse.”

Richard Schechter is CEO and President of Bainbridge Companies LLC. He is an avid equestrian himself. As owner of Bainbridge Farm, Schechter has horses that compete in the Adult Amateur Hunters, Pre-Green Hunters, and Pony Hunters. Bainbridge Farm is the title sponsor of the Bainbridge Florida Classic Horse Show in the Winter Equestrian Festival on February 21-25, 2007.

There is one more new addition to the Bainbridge Farm family as well. Schechter recently purchased Honeymoon, an incredibly talented young horse that won the Future Hunters Non-Thoroughbred division championship with professional Tim Goguen at the 2006 Capital Challenge Horse Show. Honeymoon will compete in the First Year Green Hunters at the 2007 Winter Equestrian Festival.
