S&S BankCard Systems Grand Prix of Huntington Beach Fun Competition

It was a busy Saturday at the Huntington Beach Summer Classic at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center! With a full day of jumper and hunter classes in the rings, the day concluded with the Grand Prix Hunter Derby in the Hunter Ring and the S&S BankCard Systems Grand Prix of Huntington Beach with an incredibly entertaining fundraiser, the Horse Nation Foundation Grand Prix Dinner-Dance!

 

“Saturday night held great evening classes at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center,” said Dale Harvey of West Palms Events. “We are so happy that the Horse Nation Foundation had a successful fundraiser and the spectators enjoyed the event! Thank you to everyone who came and a special thank you to S&S BankCard Systems for their wonderful sponsorship!”

 

In the afternoon, the Grand Prix Hunter Derby boasted a flowing course, created by renowned course designer, Rob Gage. The riders and their mounts navigated through the course that included two options, two combinations and a couple areas where the riders could save time with inside turns.

Jenny Karazissis on Proenza and Michael Leon on Celano were within seven points of one another after round one, prompting a second round! There were also two options in the second round. The course was annotated from the first round and riders were also rewarded for maintaining a swift pace and tidy turns by earning one extra bonus point for every second they were under the time allowed! In the end, it was Leon and Celano who finished with a total score of 177 to win the class! Karazissis and Proenza finished in a very close second with 175 points!

The S&S BankCard Systems Grand Prix of Huntington Beach provided a great competition for Saturday evening’s sold out Horse Nation Foundation Grand Prix Dinner-Dance crowd. With many in the crowd new to the sport of show-jumping, the riders and their mounts showed off great skill and precision around a course designed by course designer, Rob Gage. The course contained 14 obstacles, including a triple combination across the diagonal and a combination on the rail by the VIP tent!

The elaborate course allowed six pairs to advance to the jump-off. The jump off was a shortened course of 8 fences, including the combination on the rail by the boisterous crowd! Peter Petschenig and his own Saint Quentin were first to jump off and put up a double clear round with a fast time of 34.89 to start off the competitive jump-off. Stefanie Saperstein and Cender Van’t Zorgvliet were second up, also having a clear round, but not quite as fast as Petschenig, with a time of 40.53! Mark Watring and his own Balyon rounded out the top three with four faults in the jump-off and a time of 40.38.

The Horse Nation Foundation Grand Prix Dinner-Dance attendees had an exciting time watching top equestrian athletes tackle a well built Grand Prix course. The sold out event’s proceeds went to the non-profitprogram that pairs rescued horses with young people who are working on life-enriching lessons including gang and bullying avoidance, effective communication and building strong morals and values. The generous charity had a live and silent auction and held a VIP dinner to raise funds to support their continuous efforts.

 

It was an exciting evening at the Huntington Beach Summer Classic, thank you to everyone who attended to support the event and the Horse Nation Foundation! A special thank you to our wonderful sponsor at S&S BankCard Systems for their continued support! We could not be successful without the help of all our incredible sponsors! Thank you again!
