March 17, 2011 — Ainsley Vince was named the CAVALOR 'Athlete of the Month' for February by Jump Canada.
Vince of Burlington, ON, rode Utopie des Hautes, a seven-year-old chestnut Belgian Warmblood mare owned by Ashford Farm, to victory in the $1,500 Adequan Seven-Year-Old Young Jumper competition on February 25 at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL.
From a starting field of 43 entries, Vince and Utopie des Hautes were one of ten combinations to proceed to the jump-off, where they posted a clean round in a time of 35.89 seconds for the win.
“I am really honoured and excited to be named the CAVALOR 'Athlete of the Month' for February,” said Vince. “I would like to express my appreciation to my horse, Utopie des Hautes. She has just been getting better and better. Last year she won the $20,000 Adequan Six-Year-Old Jumper Classic during the final week of WEF, so this victory is a nice progression in her training. I would also like to thank Utopie des Hautes’ owners for their support.”
Vince added, “I would also like to thank Cavalor for their recognition. Cavalor is a great company with fantastic products. The gift certificate will be put to very good use!”
As the CAVALOR 'Athlete of the Month' for February, Vince receives a gift certificate from title sponsor CAVALOR Inc.
