Future Of Horse Shows By The Bay Uncertain

A U.S. Equestrian Federation licensing dispute has put the future of the Horse Shows By The Bay series in jeopardy.

Alex Rheinheimer started the July Williamsburg, Mich., hunter/jumper circuit outside Traverse City in 2004, and by 2014 the circuit had grown to four weeks with 1,100 horses. The U.S. Equestrian Federation withdrew Rheinheimer’s three-year renewal application for the HSBTB shows to start in 2015 for lack of facility.

Derbyshire Attacks Grand Prix Of Great Lakes To Win

Amanda Derbyshire and Attack II left no prisoners during the $40,000 Grand Prix of the Great Lakes. Derbyshire had the luxury of going sixth of the seven competitors who qualified for the jump-off in the featured jumper class, held during Horse Shows by the Bay Series III on July 20 in Traverse City, Mich.

Derbyshire was able to win the battle by leaving out a stride that second-placed Kim Farlinger hadn't.

"I did five strides after the double, where most people did six, and I think that's where I made the time up. So I'm very happy," said Derbyshire.

Lillie Ross Rocks It At Horse Shows By The Bay

Traverse City, Mich.—July 22

Lillie Ross had quite an entourage for the awards ceremony of the $30,000 Grand Prix of the Great Lakes. As she walked Pako into the ring to pick up her blue ribbon, her mother and trainer, Allison was at Pako’s head. Lillie’s sister, Allie, was documenting the moment with a camera, while her brother, Teddy, filmed the ceremony on video.

But then again, it’s not often a 17-year-old wins a grand prix against some stiff competition.

Traverse City, Mich.—July 20

For a little while, it almost looked like Kelley Farmer wasn’t going to win the $20,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. And that would almost be bigger news than her winning it.

Marlo Wins It Her Way At $30,000 Grand Prix Of The Great Lakes

Williamsburg, Mich., July 24

Ryan Genn let his father ride his horse for just a few weeks, and what does he do? He goes out and wins the $30,000 Grand Prix of the Great Lakes with her!

Wilhelm Genn took the reins on Marlo for the last two weeks because Ryan was sick, and he and the talented gray mare made short work of conquering a speedy 10-horse jump-off for the top check.

Cordoba Conquers All At Horse Shows By The Bay

Nobody else was going to win the $30,000 Grand Prix of Traverse City, if Kim Farlinger had her way.

“I thought I didn’t leave much room to beat me. I was able to hold my gallop to all the fences, and he jumped really well,” Farlinger said. “I was watching everybody else, and they just didn’t get it done.”

After the last of the seven horses jumped off in the last class of Horse Shows By The Bay on July 18, Farlinger and her veteran Cordoba were leading the victory gallop.

Bases Loaded Hits A Home Run At Horse Shows By The Bay

Kelley Farmer hit it out of the park in the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby at Horse Shows By The Bay on July 16. She had five rides in the class, and ended up first and second on Bases Loaded and Taken.

Farmer has been unbeatable in the last three derbies she's shown in, and this one in Traverse City, Mich., was no different. She topped the first round on Taken, but then she overtook herself in the handy round on Bases Loaded. Both horses are owned by amateur rider Nancy Amling.
