A contending field of 16 jumpers took the Sanctuary Arena at the World Equestrian Center Saturday for the $10,000 Futures Prix 1.30m.
Six riders qualified for the jump off, with three of which delivered fault-free rounds. The fastest of the rounds was David Beisel and Vegas H, who topped the class with a jump off time of 36.599 seconds.
David Beisel is no stranger to the winner’s circle at the World Equestrian Center. Beisel piloted his own Vegas H (Valentino x Cobrah), an eight-year-old Warmblood, to his second WEC Futures victory. We caught up with Beisel of David Beisel Stables, Goshen, Ohio, to chat about today’s Futures Prix win, “He is so fast and light on his toes. He steers so well, for a big horse you can make surprisingly tight turns on him.”
Richard Rinehart of Rinehart Farm in Carmel, Indiana, rode Caron L. Stucky’s Uranus 112 (Uccello xCONNY II) a 2011 Oldenburg gelding, into a beautiful second place with a jump off time of 37.473 seconds.
Erika Thornell piloted Gyloma (Kashmir Van Schuttershoff x Baloma) a 2011 KWPN mare owned by Loveland Equine Investments, Loveland, Ohio, top a top three finish. The duo had a jump-off time of 41.270 seconds.
