Wellington, FL – March 17, 2022 – On Thursday, March 17, at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, international competition continued during the week 10 of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF), sponsored by Horseware Ireland. Nick Dello Joio (USA) snagged the victory in the day’s featured event, the $75,000 Adequan® WEF Challenge Cup Round X CSI4*, beating out seven other top pairings for the win aboard Cornet’s Cambridge.

A large field of 70 horse-and-rider combinations contested Michel Vaillancourt’s (CAN) first-round challenge with hopes of adding their names to the list compiled for the jump-off track. Darragh Kenny (IRL) proved the luck of the Irish was alive and well on this Saint Patrick’s Day as he and Volnay Du Boisdeville produced the first clear effort. Seventeen different nations vied for the top spot, but the final battle came down to three Irishmen, three Americans, Beat Mändli as the lone representative for Switzerland, and Ben Maher as the solo contender for Great Britain.

Nick Dello Joio was one of three U.S. riders to return for the short track, but his expert navigation over the course with The Berry Group LLC’s 10-year-old Oldenburg gelding Cornet’s Cambridge (Balou Du Reventon x Cambridge 8) proved to be enough to hold on to the lead. The duo laid down a fast and flawless performance, clocking in at 37.87 seconds which put them two seconds ahead of the closest challenger.

While not at the top of the podium, Ireland still had a strong performance with Mark McAuley and Jasco VD Bisschop taking second place, while Jordan Coyle rode to third aboard Centriko Volo. McAuley chased Dello Joio’s time with SNC McAuley Equestrian’s 13-year-old BWP gelding (Dulf Van Den Bisschop x Verania) and produced the only other double-clear effort, but was not quite quick enough across the ground after landing with a time of 39.61 seconds. Coyle then put forth the fastest four-fault score with a time of 36.56 seconds on Celtic Park LLC’s 10-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Centadel x Chacco-Blue).

Wellington, FL – February 6, 2020 – Riding out of the 12th spot in a jump-off field of 19, Kent Farrington (USA) sped through the timers to win the $137,000 Equinimity WEF Challenge Cup Round 5 CSI5* riding Austria 2, owned by Take the High Road LLC, on Thursday, February 6, at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL.

The first round of the WEF Challenge Cup had 52 entries, and with 19 clear over the course designed by Anthony D’Ambrosio and Andy Christiansen Jr., speed was all-important. The early lead was set by Capt. Brian Cournane (IRL) and Penelope Cruz, owned by Cournane and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stiller, at 43.15 seconds, which would hold up for fifth place. The leading time dropped down to 41.56 seconds when Olympic individual gold medalist Eric Lamaze (CAN) piloted The Chacco Kid Group’s Chacco Kid around the short course. They would end on a podium finish in third place.

But it was Farrington and Austria 2 as the next pair into the ring that would set a blazing time of 40.68 seconds that would remain untouched for the remaining seven trips.

“I don’t really feel a limit on her; she’s got an unbelievable mentality,” said Farrington of the 12-year-old Holsteiner mare (Casall x Corrado I). “That goes a long way, and a horse that really wants to fight for you is a huge part of the battle of doing high level sport.”

Jennifer Bauersachs and Another Love Capture High Performance Conformation Hunter Championship

Hunter competition during Week 5 of WEF continued on Thursday with Jennifer Bauersachs and Another Love claiming champion in the High Performance Conformation Hunter division. The duo won the model and the under saddle, and also received two firsts, a second, and a fourth in the E. R. Mische Grand Hunter Ring.

Bauersachs has been partnered with Another Love, who is owned by Meritage Stables LLC, for two years. Last year, Bauersachs, of Frenchtown, NJ, competed the mare successfully in the second year green hunter division. “She’s really brave and reliable,” Bauersachs described of Another Love. “It’s fun because I can count on her and now I feel like I have a real partnership with her.”

Aside from winning both the model and under saddle, Bauersachs and Another Love also scored a pair of 88s to win both over fences classes on the second day of the division. “I ended up in a rubber snaffle with her and she loved it. I think the softness of being able to ride her in that bit definitely stood out,” Bauersachs commented. “I love that she’s a mare! I get along with them well and when they partner with you, they really partner with you.”
