Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Tampa, FL - Competition in the 2010 Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series continued to grow more intense during the month of February. With classes still in full swing at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, riders continue to earn points on the Series' overall standings.
One such rider is Chloe Wormser of Northbrook, IL. Wormser, who competes in the Series' East Conference Amateur-Owner division with her mount Udiana, finished in second place in two of the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series amateur-owner classes held at WEF in February.
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. With her back-to-back second place finishes with Udiana, Wormser earned 230 points, and was named the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Rider of the Month for the month of February.
"We would like to congratulate Chloe on earning our Rider of the Month Award," said Philippe Collard, President of Cavalor, Inc. "Her success in the Cavalor Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series is very impressive, and we wish her the best of luck as the Series continues!"
