Beezie Madden and Con Taggio Top $10,000 Open Jumper 1.40-1.45m


North Salem, New York – May 11, 2017 – 2016 U.S. Olympic team silver medalist Beezie Madden of Cazenovia, NY, took the blue ribbon in the $10,000 Open Jumper 1.45m riding Con Taggio, owned by Abigail Wexner, on the Grand Prix Field at the Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows.

“[Con Taggio] is one of several exciting new horses I have here
for this show. He’s a little hot and quick, so that was good for
the jump-off because he is naturally fast. So far he has been a
pleasure, and he really likes the field.” ~ Beezie Madden

Madden and Con Taggio, an eight-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Contagio x Goliath Life), were first to go in Thursday’s feature class and bested a field of 29 over courses built by Ken Krome of Westminster, MD. Their double-clear effort gave them the lead with a time of 40.344 seconds which stood for the win.
