The Flintridge Spring Classic kicked off the 2015 Grand Prix Hunter Derby Series tonight at the Flintridge Riding Club. It was an exciting competition, with a course designed by well-known course designer, John Manning.

The competitors rode a course that began with a single obstacle, and included a flowing seven stride line, a roll back to a single oxer, a two stride combination, and the riders finished with a single oxer coming home.

Michael and Celano had a wonderful round that was consistent throughout, with the team executing every stride flawlessly. Leon grabbed second place as well on C Coast Z, with Jamie Sailor claiming third and fourth on Leon and Matador, respectively. Jodie Camberg rounded out the top five on Goodnight Gracie.

The Grand Prix Hunter Derby is in its third year and has been an incredible success story, bringing action, excitement and against-the-clock competition to the hunter ring. Make sure you attend the Far West Farms Grand Prix Hunter Derby next week at the 94th Annual Flintridge Horse Show on Friday, April 24.
