The 2015 recipient of USEA Area 2 - TB Award  winner announced - For all the TB owners/eventers! For all you TB owners/eventers! We have again a very generous USEA Area II contributor, Vicki Fox, the sponsor of the special TB award. If you signed up for the 2015 USEA Area II Year End Awards Program with your TB you were automatically eligible for this Special Award. A separate points tally applied for all the TB's.

The 2015 TB Award winner is Fiddlers Choice with her jockey Bailey Yablonovitz.

My name is Bailey Yablonovitz. I'm 14 years old and I am the owner and rider of Fiddler's Choice. Fiddler's Choice or Fiddler as he is known around the barn is an 11 year old grey thoroughbred. My parents purchased Fiddler for me a little over a year ago for my bat mitzvah. Fiddler began racing when he was 2 years old. Eventually he retired from his racing career and became an eventer. Fiddler has evented to Preliminary with his previous owner Sarah Rupert. Fiddler taught me the basics of eventing and of course none of this would have been possible without the help of Susie Beale my amazing trainer, who was also the one who found Fiddler! Throughout the year we went to many events and with the help of Susie; Fiddler and I usually finished well. This year has been incredibly successful, and I couldn't have done it without Susie, my friends that encourage me through everything, my parents who without their support none of this would be possible, and of course my amazing horse Fiddler's Choice! Fiddler has taught me so much throughout the time that I have owned him! But most importantly he taught me to relax and enjoy the ride.

2014 AREA 2 YEAR END AWARDS PROGRAM FEATURED RIDERS & HORSES

BEGINNER NOVICE - JUNIOR/YOUNG RIDER CHAMPION

ALEXIS DIPASQUA & CINNAMON TOAST, “KING”

My name is Alexis DiPasqua, 16 years old, from West Chester, PA. This year I had the privilege of riding Cinnamon Toast better known as “King”. A 20 year old appaloosa quarter horse. “King” was purchased in the winter of 2013 for my Mom. Thinking he could retire from Novice and be a “Mom” horse. Little did “King” know that he was going to teach me to be an eventer. This was my first year of eventing regularly and doing recognized events. In the past I had done a few, but after I had a bad fall and broke my hand in May 2012 I focused on dressage and Pony Club. I am currently hold a rating of C-2/ HB and am a member of The Radnor Hunt Pony Club in Malvern, PA. That is when “King” came into the picture.

We started our season by going to Plantation Fields and placed second. That was the start to our amazing season that consisted of competing at Bucks County Horse Park Horse Trials, twice and winning both times. Also, showing at Flora Lee Spring Horse Trials and placed first. In, addition, I was invited and competed at the United States Pony Club National Championship at the Kentucky Horse Park and took first there as well. I also competed at The New Jersey Horse Park, Horse Trials have a good dressage score but struggling with time faults cross country which earned me sixth place. Finally ending the season by attending the Area II Championship in Lexington, Virginia and winning the Junior Beginner Novice. Our dressage scores for the season ranged from a 19 (at Bucks County) to a 34.7 (at Plantation). This earned us a Blue Ribbon Award and a Gold Medal.

“King” taught me so much through the season. From wrapping and how to braid quickly. Also running cross country with no time penalties (which was an issue for me). Of course I would not have been able to accomplish any of this without my Trainer, Beth Wicas, Owner/Trainer of Mane Event Stables in Malvern, PA. Mrs. Wicas has taught me excellent horsemanship including learning the responsibilities involved with the sport.

Area II Championships was King’s last event and I am extremely proud to say we ended on our Dressage score (not picking up any time faults on cross country and having the fastest Show Jumping course of the day while going completely clean). “King” has definitely earned his retirement and ended on a great season. In 2015 I will be moving up to Novice with my pony, BDR Capezio, “Cappy”. I hope to transfer my knowledge and ability to “Cappy” and enjoy the ride. Thank you to all involved in making this past season happen, especially my Mom and Dad.

NOVICE - ADULT AMATEUR CHAMPION

KIM COLEMAN & FAGEDABOUDIT PAL

My name is Kim Coleman and I live in Pennington, NJ. As a junior rider, I did mainly equitation and some hunters and jumpers. When my junior years were over, I went to college, worked in NYC, got married and had 2 children. In my 30s I started riding again once both of my boys were in school.

After 15 years off, it felt great to be back on a horse. I bought a chestnut Thoroughbred mare named Quiet Bid, Holly. We competed in the hunters for a few years and then continued on to the jumpers, then everything changed when we moved to Toy Box Farm. Now in my 40’s, I had discovered eventing. The only problem was that Holly was not very keen on the idea of XC.

As it became clear that she did not want to be an event horse, a new horse came to the barn from Monmouth Race Track in August 2011. His name was Fagedaboudit Pal, a very handsome 4 year old bay gelding. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to begin riding him that October, thanks to my trainer who owned Pal, Carol Blackman. For the first year, he ran sideways anytime another horse came near him, which meant all they had to do was be in the ring. Luckily, he grew out of that and turned into a really nice horse, especially when it came to jumping. The best news was that he “loves” XC!

In February 2012, I bought Pal. That year Pal and I did a few Beginner Novices and then moved up to Novice. We just completed our third season competing together. I feel like Pal and I have grown together as a team and I’m really looking forward to 2015. Our plan is to move up to Training in the spring.
