Edited Press Release
Kelly Mullen and Drumroll sailed around the E.R. Mische Grand Hunter ring during week 8 at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) to take a tricolor the Equine Tack and Nutritionals 3’9” Green Hunter division on Thursday.
The pair impressed the panel of judges, who rewarded them with an 87 over fences and an 88 in the handy round on the first day of the division. Their standard was unbeatable on day two of jumping as Drumroll, a 2014 Holsteiner gelding by Diamant de Semilly and owned by Mary Jane King, took champion.
“The first class we were focused on keeping him very straight and he did have a couple rubs, so we didn’t get a great ribbon,” said Mullen. “The second trip I let him have his head and he jumped amazing and after winning both classes yesterday we squeaked out as champions.”
Mary Jane King bought this lovely young horse for Mullen to show about a year ago. “He is one of the sweetest horses,” said Mullen. “He is big and strong so you have to make sure you have him under your control because at times he can get away from you, not in a mean way, he simply has a big and powerful stride.”
Drumroll’s owner, Mary Jane King added, “I told Kelly when we were looking for a horse that I would be proud to own. The girl who had him imported him from Germany and really went slow with him. He has had a light schedule and been slowly and carefully produced, which is probably why he is turning out so nicely. We got lucky!”
