North Salem, NY – May 18, 2017 – French Kiss, a 13-year-old Westphalian gelding owned and ridden by Tina Allen, earned a Grand Adult Hunter Championship on Thursday at the Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows. French Kiss carried Allen, of New Canaan, CT, to champion honors in the Adult Amateur Hunter 36-49 division with three first-place ribbons over fences and a third-place finish under saddle.
French Kiss is a longtime partner for Allen after she purchased the gelding seven years ago. They competed in the 3’3” Amateur–Owner Hunters before moving up to 3’6” height during the 2017 winter season.
“He is my ‘steady eddy’ for sure. I can always count on him to do his job.
He is all business when he gets to the ring, and he really wants to win.
I love that he is consistent and fun to ride. He comes to the ring the
same way every time and wants to get the job done.” ~Tina Allen
