•Two of Jen Alfano’s rides tied for the grand hunter title, with regular working hunter Jersey Boy taking the ribbon over second year green hunter The Specialist after earning more points over fences. The Specialist also picked up a second tricolor with owner Meredith Bartolone in the amateur-owner, 36 and over, division.

•When 13-year-old Cameron Bell found a large wad of cash on the ground she marched it straight to the horse show office. The misplaced money belonged to show photographer Anne Gittins, who thanked Bell for her honesty with an 8″ x 10″ photo of her and her pony.

•Wendy Kraus-Lewis eased back into the show ring this season after an injury sidelined her over the winter. She and Forget Paris topped three classes at Chagrin to take the adult amateur, 46 and over, and the grand adult amateur championships.

•Other winning families at Chagrin included sisters Paulena Johnson, who rode Davis Cup to the small junior hunter championship, and Lexi Johnson, who won the children’s hunter, 14 and under, title aboard Miracle.
