Ferrell And Stewart Look Set To Duke It Out In Professional Hunters

The first day of professional hunters at Devon, May 26, was perhaps more noted for the performance of a dog than a horse.

Scout and Liza Towell Boyd survived their close encounter of the canine kind unscathed, and the judges—Linda Andrisani and Danny Robertshaw—brought them back first for the green conformation class jog, but then moved them down to second, giving West Point and Scott Stewart the win.

Stewart also won the first second year green class with Molly Ohrstrom’s Ovation and placed third in the under saddle.

Stewart also won the first second year green class with Molly Ohrstrom’s Ovation and placed third in the under saddle.

John French kicked the day off with a first year green over fences win with Pringle.  Sandy Ferrell topped the second class aboard Bolero with a score of 93.  Stewart and Castlewalk were second in both classes.

Sandy Ferrell rode French’s old ride Andiamo to an over fences win in the regular working hunter class, but Havens Schatt won the under saddle and placed second over fences with Federal Hill.

Stewart leads the green conformation division with his win over fences with West Point, who also was third in the model and fourth in the under saddle.

Lainie Wimberly rode Tim Goguen’s old mount, Boulevard Deir, to a win over fences and third in the under saddle in the regular conformation division.  Jenny Karazissis topped the other over fences class on Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Oare’s Kost To Coast.  Stewart was second in an over fences class and the under saddle on last year’s grand hunter champion, Highland Park.
