Wellington, FL (February 28, 2014) The 2014 WEF 8 G&C Farm CSIO Four Star "AA" Show kicked off its week of CSIO competition under sunny skies in Florida. This proved to be the perfect location for Gia and Kate Gibson to dominate the Amateur Owner Over 35 Hunters, despite the top competitors in Florida for the winter season. The two were victorious in both the under saddle and over fences classes. They placed fifth in the stake class with a score of 76 to clinch the winning title for the division.
Gia is a 2003 bay Hanoverian mare by Don Bosco owned by Ms. Gibson and Shadyside Farm, Magnolia, Texas. Gia is a pleasure to watch in the showring, demonstrating all the style and ability of a top class hunter. While they enjoyed winning this Championship, Gia and Kate are no strangers to the winner's circle. They place fourth overall in 2013 in the USHJA Year End Awards in the Amateur Owner Hunter 36+ Years Division with only 11 competitions. Look for them to continue winning in at hunter shows across the USA in 2014!
