Celebrations Abound During WEF 6

Emma Pell and Ari 55 in the Low Junior Jumper Classic

Week 6 of the Winter Equestrian Festival circuit in Wellington, Florida, was cause for celebration on a variety of fronts. In addition to featuring WCHR Hunter Week, festivities February 13-17 included Valentine’s Day and the third anniversary of Emma Pell’s partnership with Ari 55.

So, fittingly, the dynamic duo collected a variety of top ribbons in the Low Junior Jumpers, including third place in the hotly contested $10,000 NAL Low Junior Jumper Classic out of 92 entries. They also captured another third in a field of 74 for an impressive week.

Emma also continued to collect ribbons in the Medium Junior Jumpers aboard Santos, including a sixth place in a competitive field over a 1.30m course.

Leslie Kopp and Griffin in the International Ring

Leslie Kopp also enjoyed Week 6, with a blue ribbon in the Don Little Masters on a new trial horse Colibri. She also competed in the 3’3″ Amateur-Owner Hunters with Griffin and Fenwick, taking the rare opportunity to gallop around the International Ring where the top jumpers usually perform.

Emma Pell with Beth O’Quinn of Foxcroft School

Foxcroft School administrator Beth O’Quinn also visited this week from Middleburg, Virginia, and was able to watch student Emma in the Junior Jumper Classic. In addition, Denice and Roy Perry enjoyed dinner in Palm Beach with Brandon and his wife, Kristie.

It was a fun and successful week and marked the halfway point of the WEF circuit!
