Glynn (Petaluma, Calif.) and Aventus, Jennifer Cancellieri’s 2014 Brandenburg gelding, claimed the Overall Grand Champion tricolor and The Monarch International Perpetual Trophy thanks to two spectacular over fences rounds and a lovely under saddle class. The pair swept the Large Junior Hunter 16-17 3'6" section, winning the Under Saddle, Classic, and Handy phases. The pair also secured the Large Junior Hunter 16-17 3’6” section championship, and the Magic Word Perpetual Trophy, donated by Karen Kay, with weighted scores of 104.80 in the classic, 105.60 in the handy, and 53.00 in the under saddle. Glynn, who trains with Lee Flick, is a veteran of past Junior Hunter National Championships, but 2022 marks her first year contesting the championship with Aventus.

“I’ve been doing Junior Hunter Finals for many, many years. Every year I’ve been getting closer and closer to that Grand Champion win, and it just feels amazing to have that accomplishment,” said Glynn. 

“[Aventus] is super sweet in the barn, and we call him Venti,” said Glynn. “It was so special having him stalled with my Small Junior Hunter horse. I got to spend so much time with him this week. This is our first Junior Hunter Finals together and he was just so brave. It’s such a pleasure to ride such a great horse.”

Capturing the Overall Reserve Grand Champion honor in the 3’6” section was Skylar Wireman (Bonsall, Calif.) and Bonne Starlight, MZ Farms, LLC’s 2012 Hanoverian gelding. They accumulated weighted scores of 106.00 in the classic, 95.60 in the handy, and 52.00 in the under saddle to earn the title with the help of trainer Shayne Wireman. The combination also earned the section championship for the Small Junior Hunter 16-17 3’6” section and were presented the River Edge Farm Perpetual Trophy, donated by River Edge Farm.

The Adequan/USEF Junior Hunter National Championship – West welcomed 3’3” sections to the ring today, as well, as the combinations contested the Classic Phase.
