Hubbard and her partner of nearly five years, the 2011 Belgian Warmblood gelding (Cantos x Quadrillos) owned by Hubbard Horses, LLC, have claimed a string of victories this season at TIEC.

 

“This is our third week here and he won the $25,000 [Tryon Resort Jumper Classic] the first week, then was third in the $30,000 [Cleghorn Golf & Sports Club Grand Prix]. I’m really happy with him! He always tries his hardest,” said Hubbard.

The pair rose from a field of 14 trips that challenged the course designed by Anthony D’Ambrosio (Red Hook, NY).

“[The course] rode nice! For me, I usually have to gallop a little down the lines, but he was really open and everything rode very nice. It was a good course,” shared Hubbard.

Hubbard had confidence in her partner’s natural speed when it was time for the jump off.  

 

“He’s naturally super quick, and the turning is harder for me, so I tried to let him gallop across the long distances and hope to turn as tight as I could. There was really only one number, the six, so I just tried to make sure I got that then everywhere else used his natural speed,” Hubbard added.

“I love it here. Everything is really nice and I think I’ll be back later this summer.”

Caroline Mawhinney and Dolitaire Chavannaise Dominate $6,000 Power & Speed Stake CSI 2*

 

May 24, 2022 – At just 15 years old, Caroline Mawhinney (USA) conquered the first FEI class of the season at TIEC by winning the $6,000 Power & Speed Stake CSI 2*, clearing the speed phase in a time of 37.02 seconds aboard Dolitaire Chavannaise. In reserve, Luis Fernando Larrazabal (VEN) and Coralina LS La Silla, the 2013 Mexican Sport Horse mare owned by Leeann Ablin, stopped the timer in 37.55 seconds. Daniel Bedoya (BOL) and Quimi Del Maset, Monica Hanks’ 2014 Spanish Sport Horse gelding (Quasimodo Z x Indret Del Masset), claimed third place with a time of 38.69 seconds.

Since Mawhinney was not entering her 2009 Belgian Sport Horse mare (Cicero Z van Paemel x Voltaire) in the Saturday grand prix, she used this class to challenge her partner. 

 

It was really good, actually. I think most people were using it as a warm up, but she’s not jumping in the grand prix on Saturday, so I was able to go a bit quick and she’s good at that. So, I just went inside the vertical, and then inside after jump number 11. But, she’s amazing,” Hubbard explained. 

  

Hubbard had a solid plan for tackling the course set by Anthony D’Ambrosio (Red Hook, NY).

 

“She’s pretty careful herself, so I just tried to set her up through the course and ride it the best I can. I made sure that I got down that second five because it was a bit forward to a double, and then tried to hold off the vertical and leg her out of the oxer,” she added. 

 

Hubbard gave thanks to her entire team, who are all enjoying their stay at TIEC.

 

“Thanks to my groom Elena, and my Trainer, Jess, and how amazing Dolitaire is; I’m leasing her for the year, and she’s amazing. [TIEC is] a beautiful show. All the horses love it, and it’s just really nice for them. The restaurants are nice for the people. I always enjoy coming here.”
