North Salem, New York – May 11, 2017 – Mahalo, ridden by Katie Robinson of Bronxville, NY, was named Grand Adult Amateur Hunter Champion on Thursday, May 11, at the 2017 Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows, running May 9-14 and May 16-21 at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, NY. On the Grand Prix Field, four-time U.S. Olympic medalist Beezie Madden claimed a win in the $10,000 Open Jumper 1.45m riding Con Taggio.
Robinson, who rides with trainers Andre Dignelli and Patricia Griffith at Heritage Farm in Katonah, NY, won all three jumping classes, the under saddle, and the handy to sweep the Adult Amateur Hunter 50 and Over Division. Her five blue ribbons also earned her and her own Mahalo, an 18-year-old Warmblood gelding, the Grand Adult Amateur Hunter Championship title.
“Even though he is an older horse, he still has a lot of spunk.
Every time I get on him we have a lot of fun together,
and I had so much fun with him today. He was perfect.”
