Kate Hicks & Belmont

LINDSAY BERRETH PHOTO

BELMONT
b. g., 16.2 hands, 17 years, U.S.-bred Thoroughbred-cross (by Boelskool Boy), owned by the rider.

KATE HICKS
age 28, Cochranville, Pa.

In 2011, they placed 15th in the Dansko Fair Hill CCI*** (Md.). They completed in an advanced division at Southern Pines II (N.C.) and The Fork (N.C.) this spring.

Belmont is one of my favorites. He has scope to match his brains and can easily jump a clean round. Kate is extremely proficient technically, but she must bring a competitive sense of urgency to the situation. If she does, this pair can astonish the world.
