Wellington, FL – January 21, 2016 – Kelley Farmer of Keswick, VA, kicked off her week with the tricolor honors in the Regular Conformation Hunter division, which was sponsored by Shapley’s Grooming Products. Farmer piloted Clever Conversation to two wins and fourth place over fences and also won the model and the under saddle. Scott Stewart and Stephanie Danhakl’s First Light settled for the reserve title after winning both over fences classes on Thursday and jumping to second and fifth on Wednesday. They were third in the model and fifth under saddle.

Clever Conversation is a seven-year-old Warmblood gelding, owned by Woodland Way, Inc. and Kensel, LLC. “He is still a First Year horse and does the Green Conformation Hunters as well,” Farmer remarked.

Farmer noted that the young horse easily jumps the 3’9” height in the Regular Conformation division.

She added, “He still has his baby moments, but he is a really good horse. He is super brave, super quiet, super easy and very straightforward.”

Farmer only showed the horse a handful of times last year, but she has high hopes for him this season. “He has all the parts and wants to do it right,” she commented.

Competition was fierce during this second week of WEF. Farmer was thrilled with the quality and quantity of horses in the division. “It’s lovely to see. It’s really nice to have some [good] numbers in the hunter divisions,” Farmer commented.

WEF 2 continues tomorrow with a full day of jumper competition, including the $2,500 MAYBACH – ICONS OF LUXURY High Amateur-Owner Jumpers, as well as championship presentations in the Animal Medical Center Low Adult Hunter 2’6” Section A.
