White Fences Equestrian Center Kicks Off Show Season this Weekend with Super Bowl Show
Friday, February 3, 2012
"People have told me many times that they love the more-relaxed atmosphere, the free food and having no haul-in fee for White Fences shows,” he said. The only suggestion riders had for improvements was footing that wasn’t so deep, Adam said. “So, we consulted with many people on different solutions and decided that GGT footing was the best solution for us.”
Competitors in the 2012 show series will enjoy new footing placed in all four rings by Discount Dirtworks. "In addition, we literally buried the mirrored warm-up ring and are using it for a sub-grade for a completely new ring on top, also with GGT," Adam said. More stalls for competitors have also been added to the show grounds.
Ingred’s memory remains a part of the show series. A portion of all fees are donated in her name to the Hospice of Palm Beach County. And created in her memory is the Ingred Lin Perpetual Trophy, which is given to an adult amateur rider with the four highest combined percentage scores during the White Fences show series. The 2011 recipient will be honored at the first show of the series in February.
Later, after Ingred’s death, Sue Jaccoma showed the stallions and under her saddle, Que Ba earned the USDF IALHA All Breed Award for 2011 in three categories – Grand Prix, Grand Prix Freestyle and Grand Prix Vintage Cup.
Both stallions are now in training with Bettina Drummond at her PSL breeding farm in Connecticut to perfect their passage and piaffe. Que Ba and Quemacho are both also available for breedings and both are available for sale. In the meantime, as the stallions await their next person, Bettina is enjoying serving as “temporary godmother.”
“I had enjoyed throughout the six-year period prior to her passing, helping Ingred with her own riding on these two special horse friends. They are lovely mannered stallions, very eager to respond under saddle and very adaptable in their lifestyle. Both seem to be enjoying the interaction with the colts and although their first reaction was disbelief, they seem to not be too horrified by living and playing in the occasional snow!,” Bettina said.
Those interested in possible purchase or breedings to the stallions should feel free to contact Bettina at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the Welcome Back to White Fences show series visit www.WhiteFencesFlorida.com.
