Over the Kentucky Horse Shows this month, National Show Hunter Hall of Fame rider Scott Stewart crossed $8 million in the USHJA Standings of Lifetime Money Earned.
Stewart is the most ubiquitous rider at top competitions. His accomplishments include scoring a perfect 100 on Catch Me, an astonishing 17 Leading Hunter Rider Titles at The Devon Horse Show, 12 Grand Hunter Championships at the Washington International Horse Show, 7 wins in the WCHR Professional Challenge, 15 Leading Hunter Rider titles at the National Horse Show, and last week’s 1-2 finish in the USHJA Green Incentive Championships.
Other top results this year have included 2023 Champion at the Devon Horse Show with Coulter in the 3’6 Green Hunter, Grand Hunter Champion at Kentucky Spring Shows with Nottingham, and dozens of tricolors throughout the Winter Equestrian Festival.
Stewart’s prize money only trails Kelley Farmer in Lifetime Hunter Money earned. Next to cross the $8 million mark will be John French, who after his winning finish at 2023 USHJA International Derby Finals will likely earn this benchmark within the next year.
