Wellington, FL (March 21, 2012) — Hunter trainer Jeff Gogul, who owns Flagship, LTD Farm in Ohio, rode Rosebud to the Championship in the First Year Green Working Hunter division during the seventh week of the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival. The Sanctuary Equine Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation Center, a world-class rehab and conditioning facility located in Ocala, Florida, sponsors the class as well as the Second Year Green, Green Conformation and Regular Conformation classes.
Gogul has more than 20 years of training experience to his name, having consistently trained horses and students to local, region and national championships in the hunter, jumper and equitation rings. A USEF “r” Judge, Gogul is well known for his success in Wellington. He has been the trainer and rider of the Littlewood Circuit Champion Pre-Green Hunter, the co-trainer of the WEF Circuit Champion Modified Children’s Jumper and the trainer for multiple years of the WEF Circuit Champion 3’3” Adult Amateur. Gogul’s success in the Big Eq ranks are also proven, as his students have ridden away with the ASPCA Maclay National Championship, the Hunter Seat Medal National Championship and the National Children’s Medal Championship.
Other riders to find success in The Sanctuary sponsored classes in the hunter ring included Tammy Provost who won the Championship in the Second Year Green Working Hunter division aboard Libretto, Jennifer Bauersachs who took home the Championship on Wingman in the Green Conformation Hunter and Kelley Farmer and Vox who rounded out the divisions by winning the Championship in the Regular Conformation Hunter. The Sanctuary also sponsors The Sanctuary Peak Performance Award, which was presented to Jane Gaston and Clearly during week seven of WEF, following their Championship win in the Elite Shavings Adult Owner Hunter 36 & Over.
