West Palms Events was honored to host the $25,000 PCHA Child/Adult Jumper Championship presented by Sky Partners at Del Mar International. The event took place over two rounds in the Del Mar Arena, and taking the win in both rounds plus the champion title was junior rider Zacko Hardin aboard Eminent, a 14-year-old grey Oldenburg mare owned by David Murdoch.

“She used to be a Grand Prix horse,” Hardin explained. “But she came to us about a year ago, and now I have the opportunity to ride her in classes like this and I just love her so much.”

Hardin won the speed class on Friday and bested a competitive jump off field on Saturday to take the win. “She was really excited in the jump off,” said Hardin. “Down every line she was like ‘yeah, let’s go!’ and she was not going to touch a single jump.”

In second place was Caitlin Anderson aboard Enjoy Life, and in third place was Della White on Spindborgaes Luxses. Congratulations to all top finishers in this PCHA Championship! Full results below.
