Wellington, Fla – Jan. 17, 2019 – Jennifer Bauersachs and Another Love came out on top on Thursday in the Green 3’9” Hunter division, besting a competitive field to take the championship tricolor. Bauersachs and Another Love, a 2009 Holsteiner mare owned by Spring Hill Farm Inc. and Meritage Stables LLC, had consistent scores in the 80s over the two days of competition in the E.R. Mische Grand Hunter ring during Week Two of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). Havens Schatt and Spectacular, a 2009 gelding owned by SHP Barn LLC, also earned top ribbons both days over fences to take home the reserve tricolor.
Another Love came to Bauersachs two years ago when Bauersachs was recovering from an injury. Since then, the pair have developed a strong partnership, which was proven on Wednesday and Thursday as the impressive mare collected scores of 85, 86 and 87, improving with each round to secure their place in the winner’s circle.
Bauersachs is aiming Another Love for the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby during Week Four of WEF, and is looking forward to her bright future and competitive career as a derby horse.
Schatt and Spectacular received a score of 85 and two scores of 86 over fences to claim the reserve championship.
FROM THE WINNER’S CIRCLE
Jennifer Bauersachs – Part owner and rider of Another Love
On Another Love:
“Her name is Another Love — we call her Queenie. We own her with a lady who we are very good friends with, Debra Carey, who has bought horses with us in the past. She enjoys bringing along young horses and we’ve had her for almost two years now. The first year we had her, I had an injury so we kind of took it easy with her. Last year was really her first year.”
On her plans for Another Love at WEF 2019:
“We are hoping to get her going in the derbies. She’s super brave, a lot of fun and very scopey so I think that she could do that. We’ve done a few and she’s done well. We are planning on Week Four — there’s a derby in the International Arena. It’s really nice that David Burton has done that for us. We have a chance to showcase the hunters on a week that’s not Week Six.”
On coming to WEF:
“This hunter ring was still grass [when I first started competing here] so it’s been a long time that I’ve been coming here. On top of the weather, they do an amazing job. This is the Walt Disney [World] of showing, there’s no comparison to anywhere else. You’re competing with the best of the best and you’re always driven to be better.”
