SBS Farms Continues to Dominate in the Lone Star State at the Spring Gathering Horse Show 

Buffalo Ny, – April 10, 2017 – Jennifer Alfano and the SBS Farm’s team are coming off of a successful circuit at the Pin Oak Charity Horse show, and for their third week in the lone star state, the team maintained their winning streak, this time at the Spring Gathering Horse Show.

Kristy Herrera brought home the championship title in the Conformation Hunter division aboard Jennifer Alfano’s Candid. The pair dominated the division placing first in all of the over fences and under saddle classes and second in the handy class.

Herrera also found success in the 3’ Green Hunter division claiming the reserve championship aboard Kathy Chiaf’s Kindred with first and second place finishes in the over fences classes contributing to their title.

In the Adult Amateur 50 & Over Hunter Division Kathy Chiaf took the reins and continued her winning ways this winter season piloting her own Silver Lining to the reserve championship. She also found herself in the ribbons in the division aboard her own Sweetwater.

Jennifer Alfano continued to show that she is back in action, ready to compete and that she and Jersey Boy are a pair to be reckoned with in the derby ring. She and Jersey Boy placed second in the $10,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby and are surely a pair to watch this season.

In the $30,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby Kristy Herrera piloted Helen Lenahan’s Miss Lucy to a fourth place finish and Jennifer Alfano’s Candid to fifth place.
