Mill Spring, NC – April 8, 2019 – Genevieve Edwards (Guyton, GA) rode to the top in the $15,000 1.35m-1.40m Jumper Classic aboard her own Vantablack De Muze earning a jump-off time of 31.044 seconds at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC). Jumping in at 31.758 seconds, Aida Sanchez Long (Chattanooga, TN) earned second place with MHS Indiana owned by Dimitri Pauli. Allen Nabors Jr. (Odessa, FL) took third place with Bon Chatsworth Pierre owned by Jessie Mazzoni earning a time of 34.114 seconds.
Among 10 entries with only four pairs in the jump-off, Edwards, the last rider in the round, secured the top score in an exciting jump-off on the course set by Dean Rheinheimer (Sheridan, IN). Edwards revealed, “I’ve had ‘Ocho’ since he was four. I bought him as an unbroke 4-year-old off of a YouTube video.
“I brought him through the levels and now he’s really coming into his own at the 1.40m and 1.45m levels. We’re hoping to hit a couple of grand prixs this year. I’d like to shoot for FEI in 2020. He’s like my dog. He actually gets turned out in my yard. He’s like my big pet, and he likes bananas. My husband trail rides him, and he does leadline classes too. He’s awesome; he’s a cool horse,” she concluded.
