Catherine Kramer Wraps Up Week 4 with Champion Title in Junior Hunter 3’3” 15 & Under Division
Week 4 of the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) came to a close on Sunday with one final day of top hunter, jumper, and equitation competition. The Junior Hunter 3’3” 15 & Under competitors returned to the E. R. Mische Grand Hunter Field to contest in an under saddle and two over fences rounds to determine who the week’s division champion would be. After a brief “hack-off” between her and a fellow competitor tied for champion points, Catherine Kramer of Carmel, IN ultimately took the lead with her own Casares.
Following the jog, Kramer and Sienna Pilla closed out the final rounds of competition on the same amount of points and the two riders were asked to re-mount their horses for a short “hack-off”. The two pairs would once again display the three under-saddle gaits to the judge in order to determine which horse appeared to be the more correct mover. After several laps in each direction, both riders were directed to turn back to the line-up where Kramer and the 12-year-old Hanoverian gelding, Casares, were named champion. The pair earned placings of first, two thirds, and eleventh over fences as well as first in the “hack-off”.
