Since we're on the topic of Laura Linback... we realized she not only won the high a/o jumper class, but also won the $15,000 Brook Ledge Mini Prix later on Friday at Culpeper. What was particularly fun about that win, was the exuberance of her mount Uppsala. "Up" is a good word to describe the 10 year-old Dutch warmblood mare by Andiaamo Z- since she got major "air" both over the fences, and all around the course. ;)
no jump in sight, but Uppsala is getting her hops in
one last buck - just after crossing the timers in the winning time!
Hot on Uppsala's heels was second-place finisher - also a feisty mare - Violet, a 12 year-old warmblood mare owned by Stephanie Barnes of Rockville, MD, and ridden by Benjamin Meredith.
