Soehnke Theymann & Flora De Riverland

Edited Press Release

Young horses set the tone for a positive week of jumper competition at the Bluegrass Festival Horse Show Wednesday morning in Lexington [KY]. The Rolex Arena played host to a different field of riders this week, welcoming the country’s top jumper riders to confidently pilot their promising young mounts around the grand stadium. The chilly morning in Lexington asked the developing horses to jump carefully and quickly, testing their maturity and talent. Soehnke Theymann piloted Flora De Riverland to the top, paving the way for an auspicious future.

Peter Grant (CAN) set a large track in the Table II, Sec. 2(d) format. Grant’s 12-obstacle track challenged riders to carry their horse in a gallop to avoid time faults, while also carefully collecting their canter around each turn. The course was technical but inviting for the young jumpers, allowing them to showcase their brilliance while also gaining confidence in the show ring.

Theymann led the way aboard the Selle Francais mare owned by York Story Limited. Entering the Bluegrass state after multiple winning weeks at the Tryon International Equestrian Center [Tryon, NC], she took to the pressure with ease, maintaining composure and a pleasant expression. Theymann guided the mare through the toughest parts of the track as she jumped up and covered the ground beautifully, finishing in a time of 34.097 seconds. The spotlight is certainly in the young mare’s future as she was unphased by the challenge and won the class like a seasoned-professional.

Jonathon Millar and Doonaveeragh Balou were not far behind; holding the lead for a majority of the class, they were ultimately bested by Theymann. QBS Equestrian’s Irish Sport Horse gelding allowed his natural footspeed to carry Millar through the timers at 34.421 seconds.

Rounding out the podium was Rebecca Bruce Glynn aboard Faline. The Irish Sport Horse mare owned by Forever Horses LLC was quick and careful, leaving all of the rails up inside of the time allowed, posting a clear round. Though Glynn rode a more conservative, collected canter in the turns to ensure a fault-free round, they fell short of the winning time at 35.21 seconds.
