Hanford, from the breadbasket of reined cow horses in Central California, rode Kevin Cantrelle’s Plain Cat y (Bet Hesa Cat x Miss Plain Plain) to an exciting Open Championship, using a gutsy fence work to top Zane Davis on Bet Hes Black. “I never know what it takes


to win it,” said Gorrell. “It’s per- sistence, consistency and trying to stay in the game.”


NOVEMBER Lehua Custer of North


Hollywood felt like she’s been living in a fairy tale at the US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan®. She and her mount F.J. Ramzes traveled more than 2,000 miles to Lexington from the West Coast on a plane fi lled with Thoroughbreds returning from the Breeders’ Cup for just one championship class. And


they won it. Custer and Wendy Sasser’s


7-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Juventus x J. Rambiance by Rampal, bred in the U.S. by Cornell University) have been on a roll all season. In a mat er of days, a whirl- wind fundraising campaign orga- nized at the urging of friends raised the funds needed to fl y Ramzes to Kentucky. Before she knew it, Custer found herself a long way from her home in sunny California and shivering on a frigid November morning at the Kentucky Horse Park as she prepared for the ride of her life in the Third Level Open Championship, which she and her mount won decisively with a top score of 72.991%. “We think anything under


65 degrees is cold in Southern California, so the temperature


this morning was a bit of a shock,” Custer laughed. It was a spectacular Saturday


night Nov. 19 at the one-and-only South Point Equestrian Arena, as 30 competitors representing seven countries vied for valuable North American League points in the $100,000 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Las Vegas. Three riders posted clear


rounds and returned for a remarkable jump-off that required the precision of Longines timing to clarify. Second to last to go, Richard Spooner aboard the 10-year-old Hanovarian gelding Chatinus, beat the leading time held by Alison Robitaille to take the win. This was the third victory for Spooner during the week at The Las Vegas National CSI4*-W, on three diff erent mounts.
