Rushmount show team's riders reach new heights

All riders have qualified for Trillium Championships


The Rushmount show team took to the road super early at 5 a.m. Saturday and started the day off with a reserve champion with He’s a Pioneer in the .75m division, ridden by Malorie Harris and owned by Kathryn Heels.

Then there were two firsts on Trompe Le Monde in the .90m jumpers, piloted by Hayden McCahon. Eleven-year-old McCahon then went on to ride her horse, Don’t Let Anything Stop You, to champion of the 1m division.

Kaylin Clarke won champion of the .90m division on Silver Rush, and Hailee Vandusen on Ever So Clever won reserve champion of the 1.10m division.

All riders have qualified for Trillium Championships by being in the top seven of their zones in their divisions. In fact, Trompe Le Monde and Devon Cailting are in first place overall in the zone in the .90m jumpers, and Clarke on Silver Rush is in second place overall in the .90m.

Malorie Harris on He’s a Pioneer just missed qualifying by one ribbon. Harris starting riding this horse that was in the Rushmount training program in the winter.

Coach Heidi Mueller put Harris together with this green TB gelding to begin competing and the team blossomed throughout the season. To achieve what they did was amazing. Disappointing that they didn’t not qualify, but the fact they got that close in their first attempt in notable.

Clarke, Vandusen and Caitling are sitting in qualified positions to compete in the Mad Barn Challenge as well since they are sitting in top three placings.

Mueller is excited to see how the team does in all its divisions. We ship in to Caledon Equestrian Park on Aug. 28 and compete in one class daily in each height division every day finishing with a Mini-Prix on the Sunday. Good luck to all.
