Written by: Rebecca Walton Client:Deeridge Farm Release Date:2012-01-18
East Aurora, NY – January 18, 2012 – Katie Robinson was very successful during the first week of the prestigious Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL. Riding for her family’s Deeridge Farm, Robinson took home top honors in the Amateur-Owner 35 & Over Hunter division. She captured the championship tricolor aboard Lady O, and also earned two first place ribbons riding Rock Steady.
Robinson piloted Lady O to winning honors in the competitive Amateur-Owner 35 & Over Hunter division. The duo earned two first place ribbons, a third place ribbon, and a fourth place ribbon to claim the championship cooler.
“Lady O hasn’t shown since Devon, so I am really happy that she performed so well, she hasn’t forgotten anything,” said Robinson. “She was very relaxed and happy to be in the ring, so that was great. Lady O just needs a really relaxed, calm ride, she does all the work.”
During WEF I, Robinson also competed with her second mount Rock Steady in the Amateur-Owner 35 & Over Hunters. They had similar success over the weekend, garnering two first place ribbons for their efforts in the ring.
“Rock Steady was a great the first day and just got a little tired the second day because it has been a little while since he has shown,” noted Robinson. “He was super, too. I feel like I am in good shape for the season.”
Katie Robinson and the Jacobs Family will continue to compete throughout the 12-week Winter Equestrian Festival for their family’s Deeridge Farm.
