Fantastic Effort Earns Lindsay Archer Her First Grand Prix Win Aboard Camerone

An exciting finish in the Oak Tree Grand Prix marked our last Grand Prix for the inaugural season at the Central California Horse Show Series and of West Palms Events’ 2015 season! With 29 starters, the Oak Tree Grand Prix got underway on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon with a bustling crowd on the Turf Club Berm and a buzzing VIP and Art and Wine Reception.

“We would like to thank everyone who came to watch the Oak Tree Grand Prix today and especially Linda Starkman again for creating this wonderful facility,” said Dale Harvey of West Palms Events. “We just love seeing the crowd on the Turf Club Berm and the Art and Wine Reception was a fantastic time as well. Thank you again to everyone for supporting and participating in the Central California Horse Show Series, we are so grateful to all our sponsors, trainers, competitors and owners for joining us this Fall!”
The testing Oak Tree Grand Prix course from Marina Azevedo covered the entire Fairway Field Grand Prix arena, including two combinations and lovely long lines.
“I like the course, maybe it’s a little tough for the green horses,” said Azevedo of her work. “With the grass and the lighting you change the angles a bit, but overall it is good.”

The course allowed three horse-rider combinations into the jump-off: Lindsay Archer aboard Camerone, Alicia Foster and Zubliem and Susan Hutchison on Ziedento! The exclusive jump-off was an annotated course of tight turns and a race to the finish. Foster went first in the jump-off and put in a clear round with a tidy time. Archer marched in after Foster, commanding the ring with a clear round and a faster time to move into first place. Last but not least, Hutchison headed in determined to out-jump the competition. Hutchison had the time to win, but had an unfortunate rail, leaving Lindsay victorious, winning her first career Grand Prix! A heartfelt congratulations to Lindsay and the Archer Family on a wonderful win!
“I knew I needed to put in a solid first round,” said an emotional Archer. “There is a lot of excitement around a bigger class like this, so I needed to keep it calm and together. My husband and I are so grateful to Catherine Harvey with Rhys Farms!”

“So far their partnership is looking good,” said Catherine Harvey, owner of Camerone. “Last week Matt won on Think Big, this week with Lindsay on Camerone, it’s a pretty sweet way to start a future! I’m totally excited to see what 2016 brings and seeing what this pair will do together, but so far the future looks bright!”
Spectators attending the Oak Tree Grand Prix enjoyed the opportunity to sample some of Paso Robles’ finest wines from CaliPaso Winery, Sculpterra, Eberle Winery, SummerWood, Lone Madrone, Robert Hall Winery and Le Vigne while checking out gorgeous and original art for purchase during the event from Sculpterra. The combination of Grand Prix show jumping, a gallery of beautiful artwork and exceptional wine tasting proved irresistible.

John French is on a roll in the Fairway Field Grand Hunter at the Fall Central California Horse Show Series, capturing the top two spots and fourth in Friday’s USHJA International
Hunter Derby Presented by Sonoma Valley Stables and Pam Theodosakis! This is all after winning last week’s USHJA National Hunter Derby! John’s first place came aboard Elizabeth Gabler’s Soldier, and second went to John and Maritime, also owned by Gabler. Third place went to Hope Glynn on Karen Trione’s Full Circle, and John French earned fourth place aboard Small Gesture, owned by Georgy Maskrey-Segesman.
“It’s nice to be able to show on a big grass field and I think the horses liked the course,” said John French of his experience on the Fairway Field Grand Hunter. “There were some very nice natural obstacles that were inviting for them to jump. The horses jumped well, it was a great course.”
The exquisite course was the work of course designer John Manning and included three solid derby jumps, courtesy of Twin Rivers Ranch, who allowed us to borrow them in order to enhance the USHJA International Hunter Derby course. The beautifully flowing course included four high options in both round one and two and tested the technical finesse of the horses and riders with tight roll back turns.
“It’s very validating to have one of the best hunter riders ever to win the derby,” said course designer John Manning. “I felt like we had a lot of real derby jumps, three solid obstacles, a snake jump, a lot of brush and traditional hunter jumps, including four high options on a big grass field. It doesn’t get any better than that for a hunter course designer! It’s a beautiful setting for a derby and as we develop I think we will have more real derby jumps on the property!”
