LEXINGTON, Ky.--Kelsey Calabro’s 3-year-old filly Caberneigh (Cabardino N x Special Consideration), the Overall Reserve Grand Champion in 2019, topped the 2020 competition to be crowned Hunter Breeding Overall Grand Champion.
Caberneigh was bred by Linda Mancini and handled by Emily Anne Belin-McDonnell, and was placed first by judges Tony Sgarlata and Mike Rosser in the Three-Year-Old Filly class at the East Coast event on Aug. 22 at the Virginia Young Horse Festival.
She stayed at the front of their minds through the West Coast competition, judged again by Sgarlata along with Sue Lightner, at Blenheim Equisports' International Jumping Festival on Sept. 18 to earn the coveted overall title after the conclusion of both events.
FIF Bondalu (Bliss MF x Footloose), a 2017 Oldenburg stallion bred, owned, and handled by Rachel Benson was shown in the Three-Year-Old Colt/Gelding class and named this year's Overall Reserve Grand Champion.
