JULY 2017 THE RIDER /29 Section 2


Summer Classic while Caledon Equestrian Park celebrates Canada 150 in style


By Graeme Frisque Orangeville’s Kim Farlinger and


Sher-Al Farm’s Stanley Stone claimed both the Open Welcome and the Grand Prix during the Summer Classic at Caledon Equestrian Park between June 28 to July 2. Farlinger advanced to the jump-


off with six others on Sunday (July 2) out of a starting field of 24 in the $25,000 Grand Prix – Presented by Vestrum Canada. Farlinger and Stanley Stone — a


12-year-old Warmblood Gelding — were slotted third in the second and the pair posted a time of 40.61 sec- onds. No one would come close be- fore or after. “It was a great week for sure for


me and for Stanley, he was really jumping fantastically well in both of the classes. He’s such a fast horse and always reliable in the jump-off know- ing he’s still going to try to miss the rails even when you’re going full speed,” said Farlinger. “I had a better order in Friday’s


(Open Welcome), so I went really fast today in the jump-off knowing there were some fast riders behind me and it paid off. I think they were trying to chase Stanley and tripped over a cou- ple.”


Mexican course designer Ana


Catalina Harris Cruz put together a challenging jump-off, which only saw two of seven competitors go clear. Guelph Ontario’s Jeff Brandmaier and Jenny van het Waterblok were the other rider-horse combo to go clear, placing far behind Farlinger and Stan- ley Stone in second with a clear round of 49.33. “It was a tricky jump-off. A lot


of turning, especially at the beginning. The first three jumps were kind of in a circle and so it’s hard to really get speed going when you have to turn so much. I think that caught a lot of the horses where they were trying to get going on the gallop and the jumps were coming up so quickly… But Stanley, he’s so quick and so catty even off the turn that you can still gal- lop him even around the corners,” added Farlinger. Tottenham’s Erynn Ballard took


third and fourth in the class riding EDISON P and BELLA DONNA, re- spectively. Friday (June 30) saw Farlinger


and Stanley Stone start off the week- end with a win the first big-money class of the show in the $10,000 Open Welcome — Presented by Horseflight. The pair topped an impressive


starting field of 31, beating out Sam Pegg and Shaia de Macheco for the red ribbon in the jump-off. Ballard also took home third and fourth in that class, this time riding EDISON P and Royal du Rouet, respectively. There was no shortage of action


in the hunter rings at the 2017 edition of the Summer Classic either, with a number notable sponsored classes on the five-day schedule. Back at the park last week was
