Over the course of history in the hunter ring, only a handful of performances have earned the coveted score of 100 from the judges box. Last week at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL, Scott Stewart and Gochman Sport Horse’s Catch Me added their names to this very short list. With the long list of accolades the now 14-year-old grey gelding has earned, it is not too surprising to see this accomplished horse join such elite company—but it’s still exceptionally impressive.
What does perfection look like? A picture might be worth 1000 words, but these videos are worth a 100 score.
Rob Coluccio and Justified
At the 1998 Middleburg Classic, Rob Coluccio and Justified received not one—but three—perfect scores of 100. Allyson Coluccio imported the former show jumper and later sold him for a cool $1 million—the first hunter to be sold for that price in the world.
Victoria Colvin & Way Cool
The youngest rider to earn the perfect 100, Victoria Colvin rode Way Cool to a perfect 100 at the 2015 Upperville Colt & Horse Show. Judges Linda Adrisani and Frank Willard awarded the score to the pair in the handy round of the Junior Hunters.
Rick Fancher and Osczar
It was one for the history books: Rick Fancher and Osczar scored the first ever 100 in a Regular Working Hunter Class at the 1997 Capital Challenge Horse Show. One other 100 has been recorded at Capital Challenge, when Shachine Belle and In Disguise received a 100 for their round in the Second Year Green Working Hunter division.
Scott Stewart and Catch Me
Scott Stewart and Catch Me are the newest members of the elite 100 club. Watch the round that earned them the distinction:
Shachine Belle & In Disguise
In Disguise became the second horse in the history of Capital Challenge to score a 100 in 2003 with this perfect Second Year Green Working Hunter round. No one else has earned a perfect score at Capital Challenge since!
