From Old Salem Farm
Equestrian Sarah Segal of Flemington, NJ, stole the show in the Old Salem Farm International Arena for Thursday’s Open Jumper classes at the 2022 Old Salem Farm September Horse Shows. She piloted Horatio Street Ventures LLC’s O’Quality Z to the win in the morning’s 1.30m Open Jumper, then returned with the speedy 8-year-old Zangersheide mare to claim the top spot in the afternoon’s 1.40m Open Jumper as well.
The Old Salem Farm September Horse Shows host competitions for riders of all levels and ages, from young riders on ponies to Olympic veterans with their up-and-coming mounts. The September Horse Shows kick off with a United States Equestrian Federation Premier-4 rating for hunters and jumpers September 13-18, followed by USEF Premier-2 September 20-24 and USEF National-2 September 28-October 2.
Performance and Green hunters also took the stage in the June Road Ring, with Laura Bowery of Bridgehampton, NY, and Brianne Goutal-Marteau of Annapolis, MD, each piloting their mounts to a 1-2 finish in the first over-fences classes of the Combined Performance Hunters. Bowery rode her own Prince of Thieves; Goutal-Marteau rode Aquitaine Equine’s Infinity G.
