Tampa, FL - The summer weather is heating up and so is the competition in the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series. Lisa Goldman rode Morroco to lead the June standings and be named as the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Rider of the Month for June.
Goldman competes in the Series' East Conference Amateur-Owner division with her mount Morroco. The month of June was a huge success for the pair, as they swept first place honors in Series classes held at the Showplace Spring Spectacular I, II and III horse shows. The three wins earned Goldman 450 points in the month of June and propelled the pair to the top the standings. Goldman also finished in second in the June overall standings with her other mount, Centurion B.
With Cavalor's support, the Series honors one rider each month as the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series Rider of the Month. The honor goes to the one rider who earns the most points on one horse in Series competition that month.
"We would like to congratulate Lisa Goldman on earning our Rider of the Month award for June," said Philippe Collard, President of Cavalor, Inc. "Lisa's triple wins prove that she is a talented rider, and we are thrilled to see her succeeding in the Series."
The Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series saw competition at 12 events during the month of June, and will see classes at more than 100 horse shows before the Series culminates in the Year-End Championships at the National Horse Show in November.
The Series hosts separate divisions for junior and amateur-owner riders in two Conferences-the East Conference and the West Conference. Series standings are used to help determine junior and amateur-owner entries for the National Horse Show.
