Abigail McArdle won both the $10,000 High Junior Jumper Classic and the $10,000 Low Junior Jumper Classic during the first week of competition at WEF.
On a very successful Sunday, Abby started the morning by riding her dark bay stallion, Bravoman, in the high junior jumper classic. Competing in the International Arena, Abby and Bravoman put in a fast double clear round to top the field. Later in the afternoon, Abby and BMC Chifaira, a feisty chestnut mare, topped the field of 52 competitors in the low junior jumper classic, always a speedy group.
Abby and her sister Amelia both train with Katie Monahan-Prudent in the jumpers. Katie is famous for her successes in the international show jumping world. A member of the 1986 gold medal World’s Championship team, Katie has won almost every grand prix on the east coast of America and earned the titleof U.S. “Rider of the Year” three times.
