Edited Press Release
Scott Stewart and his mount, Hudson, displayed precisely executed rounds to take champion in the Antares High-Performance Hunter division on Thursday during week 1 of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).
Stewart, of Wellington, FL, piloted Hudson, a 2012 Westphalian stallion owned by Dr. Betsee Parker to three winning rounds over fences, collecting scores of 87, 86 and 85.
“Hudson and I have had a couple years together now,” Stewart said. “We did the first years together and the High Performance last year, so I know him pretty well. He’s really brave and quite easy in the ring.”
Stewart also noted that Hudson, sired by Arpeggio, makes the jumps look easy thanks to his big body type. “He’s a big, attractive horse and he’s a very easy jumping horse, so I think he’s very appealing going around.”
Stewart is gearing Hudson up for an appearance under the lights of the International Ring during World Championship Hunter Rider Week later in the season.
After winning the under saddle and one round over fences, Greg Crolick and Chappy collected the reserve champion title.
