    I believe this is both Jacob's and Meg's first time in USET finals. Which is a huge accomplishment

    Any updates? I've got my fingers crossed for Jacob.

    Shownet is being weird, but it's saying Catherine Tyree was 4th, and Sylvia was 3rd... Meg 2nd and Jacob won.

    Those are the final results, according to ShowNet, which has stopped saying it had only seen 8 of 10. Jacob wins, Meg 2nd, Sylvia 3rd, Catherine 4th.

    The Champion and Reserve have never competed at USET finals. Going in, not knowing what to expect and coming out in first or second place out of 94 is a great, great accomplishment! Congratulations to all who placed.

    So much for all the arm chair quarterbacks who say you can't win without a whole lot of money...sometimes a lot of ambition, enrgy and work rise above it all. Congratulations!

    I do think Gladstone is the place where somebody can really shine through regardless of their previous record. It's such a thorough test with the flatwork, the gymnastics, the courses, and the horse switch. It evens the playing field for a good rider.

    Congrats all around.

    It also doesn't hurt to spend a spell riding at Coker Farm, as Jacob did this summer. The place has a special kinship with the USET final at Gladstone and frequently sends dark horses (peasants, even) in to win the title in this most challenging of finals. Gotta love that old-school continuity.

    Jacob has made his own luck. Recall for those that don't know: He was the winner of the USHJA rider program with Melanie Smith et al. He was found out of the local system. He worked hard, and professionals jumped up to support him because he is a hard worker and talented. Prior to winning that program I would like to see the biggest thing he won.
    Last week he posted that he drove 5 hours to take his lesson and then drove back the same day...10 hours. And then most likely did homework. He is 17 years old. Sometimes the goodguys that work hard and really want it win. And I must say that there are at last check over 375 likes on FB regarding his win.
    I think that says something more than just he schooled in the right field for a week.

    Completely agree. I was stabled alongside him at EAP level one and will never forget how nice he and his father were. I wish him continued luck and success in his riding career. He will go far with his incredible attitude, talent, and love for the horses.

    Like a similar dark horse back in the day...named Andre Dignelli.

    I've never met Jacob, but everything I've heard about him indicates that he is a hard-working, talented and all-around good kid. And he's from Maryland! What's not to like?
    Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

    I thought the same. At the time, I think most people said, "Andre who?"

    And Jacob is Andre's working student! Talk about paying it forwards

    I have to say, watching him ride yesterday was such a pleasure. All of them are very good riders but there is just a certain finesse and style that Jacob has that really wow'ed me. So glad he won and look forward to watching him in the other eq finals!

    If I remember correctly, another one of Andre's riders, Peter Lutz, was a working student not having ridden in many finals before he won in 1991. I believe Judy Richter "found" him at 15 riding at pony club.

    Yes, I believe Andre was Judy Richter's working student at the time he won at Gladstone, IIRC. Full circle.
