Fast Steed, Sure Rider

Corinthian’s Armani and his owner, Lee Dillon had a number of fantastic rides at the Garden State Preview Horse Show on Sunday, April 30th. Armani and Lee were the Champion team in the Puddle Jumper (2’6″) Division!

Armani and Lee, Champions at the Garden State Preview Horse Show, April 30, 2017.

The Garden State Preview is only their second jumper show together. Lee has been working with Armani for a number of months now and more recently with CEC’s resident hunter/jumper trainer, Ken Okken.

Armani is responsive and very fast (he’s a speed demon), particularly in the power speed round, working the first eight fences clean and quick before hitting fence number nine where his fast button goes to supersonic!

Check out the video of their power speed round below.
