Week Two Kachina and Jacobs entered the class of Amateur-Owner Jumper High
Power and Speed where he placed second in the competition.
This week the fences were as high as 4'9" with spreads to 5'3" in the 1.45m

Jacobs will compete with Deeridge Farm throughout the Winter Equestrian
Festival before returning to their farm in East Aurora, New York.
