WEF Week 11 - The Final Countdown

WEF Week 11 - The Final Countdown

Published by Elizabeth Greenberg on 24th Mar 2016

As the winter season comes to a close, Caracol is soaking up every moment as we start week eleven of the Wellington Winter Equestrian Festival. The excitement begins today with the $35,000 Ruby et Violette WEF Challenge in the jumper ring and both the hunter and jumper phases of the Washington International Horse Show Medal class. For juniors, qualifying to compete in the Washington International Horse Show means they become one step closer to potential Grand Prix and Olympic career goals.

Friday is a day that we are especially looking forward to with the morning starting bright and early at 6:00AM with the George Morris Equitation and Young Jumper Flatting under the lights. George Morris is considered to be the founding father of the hunt seat discipline and is the former chef d’equipe of the United States Equestrian Federation Show Jumping team. Following this, there is the $35,000 1.45 meter class sponsored by Illustrated Properties and finally, the George Morris Equitation Championships.

Saturday may be one of the most fun days, starting with the $50,000 Artisan Farms Under 25 jumper derby in the morning and the $130,000 Engel and Volkers Grand Prix Under the Lights for, Saturday Night Lights!

Sunday wraps our time here up with the $86,000 1.50 meter Suncast Classic jumper derby as well as the ASPCA Maclay and USEF Hunt Seat Medal in the junior equitation and hunt seat rings. To get a sense of what these junior equitation classes entail, we figured we’d share videos from the 2015 national champions.

Maclay Finals – McKayla Langmeier

USEF Hunt Seat Medal Finals – Kelli Cruciotti

If you haven’t gotten a chance to stop by, come and see us! We’re located near the hunter arenas and we’ve been having a blast meeting competitors and spectators who all find the same joy in horses as we do, here at Caracol.

We’d love to help you find the perfect Easter gifts for friends and family, as well as a little something for your Easter outfit.
