Edited Press Release

The Voltaire Design Large Junior Hunter 3’6” 16-17 highlighted hunter action in the Rost Arena on Saturday at WEF 2. Tri-color honors went to Amira Kettaneh and Corras, a 2014 Latvian Warmblood gelding by Corrwiko and owned by Robert Ruckh. The reserve champion ribbon was presented to Carlee McCutcheon and Casimir, owned by Anne Glunk.

Kettaneh first sat on Corras the day before earning a championship in their first outing together. Their performances were highlighted by two wins over fences and a high score of 89.

“I got this ride yesterday which was very exciting and I’m very grateful for this opportunity,” she said. “This was only my second time riding him. He jumped amazing in the first round, and it was really fun to get the ride on such a nice horse.”

The talented catch rider rides for Andre Dignelli’s Heritage Farm and has found much success as a flat rider as well as in the show ring.

“I’ve been helping bring along some young ones and I have a bunch of ponies right now,” said the talented Kattenah. “[My goals for the winter season are to] keep having consistent rounds and hopefully get into the big jumpers.”
