FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For the second year in a row, Sabrina Glaser and Rembrandt won the $4,000 Tin Men Supply division at Aspen Farms Horse Trials. Sabrina and 10-year-old mix-breed gelding jumped clean and clear over Tremaine Cooper’s cross-country course on Saturday, putting distance between the next nearest competitors and taking the lead from Jordan Linstedt who scratched before the start of cross-country.
“He’s turned into such an amazing cross-country horse,” Sabrina said. “He’s actually not a brave horse, but he trusts me so completely. I swear he could do it on his own now.”
Despite two rails and some time faults in show jumping, Sabrina and Rembrandt held on for the win ahead of Madeleine Scott and Crosby’s Gold in second and Kerry Groot and Borasco in third.
Sabrina said their win was extra special this year because Rembrandt’s owner, Patricia Yust, was able to attend and witness his big win. Sabrina and Patricia are currently putting together a syndicate for Rembrandt, and shares are available.
For the third year in a row, Aspen Farms Horse Trials hosted the USEA Area VII Championships. Competitors qualified by placing first through fifth in a qualifying Area VII horse trials.
