Horse Sport Enews Email* On the final day of competition for the WEF Premiere Week, the Marshall & Sterling Adult Amateur Hunter Older Section B wrapped up in the E.R. Mische Grand Hunter Ring. Chris Brown piloted his own Rebel to the championship with two firsts, two seconds, and a sixth-place ribbon.Brown, of Boynton Beach, FL, purchased Rebel last year and has been developing his relationship with the gelding since. The pair trains with Kimberly Stewart and GlenWillow Farm.“He’s got his own personality. He is a spoiled brat and wants attention all the time,” said Brown of the eight-year-old Canadian Warmblood by Bon Balou, the late stallion who stood at Dreamscape Farm in Langley, BC. “That’s what makes him a great show horse because he is a little bit of a fighter and he wants to always do well.”The first day of the division took place in the South Ring, which Brown described as challenging, but was still very pleased with Rebel’s performance. “It was a good learning experience for him. He is green and it is his first time showing at WEF, so we were very happy.”The duo won the under saddle on the second day of competition in the E.R. Mische Grand Hunter Ring and received a score of 84 to win an over fences class.“Today was much more my ride and his ride; we got to flow a little more,” commented Brown. “The courses are absolutely beautiful, they changed the footing, the ring is gorgeous, and the jumps are beautiful. What is not to love?”The reserve championship in the division went to Kristen Baran, of Toronto, ON, on her own Caramia. Baran rode Caramia to a first, three seconds, and a fourth-place finish.Hunter, jumper, and equitation competition will continue with week one of the Winter Equestrian Festival, starting on Wednesday, January 13, and running through Sunday, January 17.Full results from all classes here.
