Upper Marlboro, Maryland-September 16, 2023
The late Jack Stedding was integral to the show hunter industry – especially in Maryland. He trained some of the best horses in the country through his Maryland-based Monkton Manor operation.
The Schindler Family has donated a trophy to the Maryland Horse and Pony show in his honor to a deserving trainer who exemplifies what Jack Stedding stood for:
– Success in the show ring
– And always working to strengthen the show hunter industry
This year’s winner is Pam Baker from Bealeton, VA.
Pam is a ray of sunshine, always the best dressed trainer, and has an infectious laugh. She is devoted to providing personalized attention to all of her students and horses. Pam instills good horsemanship and good showmanship to her students. She has the reputation as being one of the hardest working professionals on the show grounds.
Pam knows what it takes to create quality show hunters and good riders. For many years, Pam has been producing horses and riders who have won multiple national championships, along with tri-colors at the country’s most prominent shows. Many of this country’s top professional hunter riders got their start in the junior ranks with Pam.
Along with the Jack Stedding Memorial Trophy, Pam wins a $100 cash prize and a $100 gift certificate to Champion Saddlery.
