NY - September 11, 2007 - The
first two regional qualifying competitions were held this past weekend for the
2007 ASPCA Maclay National Championships. The winner of Region 2 was Maria
Schaub of Holmdel, NJ. Sara Green of Sherborn, MA,
was the winner of Region 3. The 2007 ASPCA Maclay National Championships will
be held at the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament on October
31-November 4, 2007, in Syracuse,
Schaub won the Region 2 event in 2005 and placed second last
year. Region 2 includes riders from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania,
and is often one of the most hard-fought qualifiers.
This year, she rode I-Toon, a seven-year-old mare that she
has worked with since this past winter. Schaub said she enjoyed riding in the
new venue at Old Salem Farm this year and was "very excited" about her win. "It
was a nice surprise," she said. "I-Toon has come a long way this year, and it
was nice to win a big class with her."
"I love showing in Syracuse,"
Schaub added. "It's a really nice horse show, and I think it's amazing that the
equitation riders in the Maclay get to show in the same arena as the
international jumper riders."
The Region 3 winner was Sara Green of Sherborn, MA.
Region 3 includes riders from 12 different Southeastern states. Green rode her
horse Why Not Jack to the win. The riders in Region 3 also competed at a new facility
this year. The North Florida Hunter Jumper Association hosted the show in Green Cove Springs, FL.
Green noted that the course was more
difficult than years
past, and the regional had more entries than last year. The riders competed
under the lights at night in the covered arena. This was Green's third time
showing in an ASPCA Maclay qualifier. The 15-year-old is looking forward to
preparing for this year's ASPCA Maclay National Championship. "My goal is to
make it to the second round," she smiled.
