Amidst soaring Florida temperatures and power disrupting downpours, the Equestrian Sports Productions (ESP) June I & II competitions came together perfectly at Equestrian Village at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington. Taking place on May 31 through June 2 and June 7 through June 9, these prestigious shows brought together top-level, high performance horses and riders in exciting hunter/jumper contests. Vita Flex, a leading manufacturer of high-quality, veterinarian-developed supplements for horses, is a proud sponsor of the series.
Winning the $7,000 Lactanase 1.35m Open Stake during ESP June I was Lynne Clibburn of Wellington, on her mount Apple Jack 12, owned by Cloud Nine LLC. The team had a double-clear ride, stopping the clock in round one at 84.342 seconds, and a jump-off time of 45.714 seconds.
The following week, during ESP June II, rider Tatiana Andujar Iglesius and her horse El Berlin also went double clear in the Lactanase 1.35m Open Stake to claim the blue ribbon with a first round time of 75.096 seconds, and a jump-off time of 45.869. Originally from Puerto Rico, Iglesius now calls Wellington home and didn’t seem phased at all by the wet and wild weather during the show.
