Brad Wolf Snags Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’3” 36+ Champion Title
Brad Wolf and 2018 USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship winner Private Practice took home the tricolor ribbon in the Palm Beach Equine Clinic Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’3” 36+ division during Week 2 of WEF.
After ribboning two firsts, two seconds, a seventh, and an eighth, the pair was asked to return for a “hack-off” with Becky Gochman and Mythical, with whom they were tied for champion. As both combinations took to the E. R. Mische Grand Hunter Field one last time, Private Practice once again displayed winning form as a hunter and sealed the victory for himself and Wolf.
