Taylor Wins 2005 USEF Saddle Seat Adult Amateur Medal Final

Release: July 18, 2005

Lexington, KY– Sarah Taylor of Davison, Michigan claimed the Championship title at the 2005 USEF Saddle Seat Adult Amateur Medal Finals July 15, riding Undulata’s Time To Shine. This year marked the fifth anniversary of the prestigious Medal Finals and once again, competitors enjoyed the scenic backdrop of the Red Mile in Lexington, home to the Lexington Junior League Horse Show.

"I was really excited," shares Taylor. "It was a really good experience. This is the same horse that I’ve been riding for three years, but this was our first national finals together.” Taylor’s parents and trainers came along to cheer her on in her national debut. “They were thrilled,” says Taylor. “The USEF medal final is one of the most competitive in equitation. It was a thrill for everyone who got to show in it."

Taylor’s win earned her the traditional sculpted statue of a Saddlebred created by Patricia Crane. Taylor’s trainer, Kathy Boggs of Spring Valley, Ohio, received the trainer’s award, traditionally given to the man or woman who coaches the 2005 Champion.

The Reserve Championship was awarded to Tasha Rose Sandler of Rancho Santa Fe, California, riding Lotto America. Both Champion and Reserve Champion received halters and wool dress sheets for their mounts, and bouquets of roses to celebrate their wins. The top three riders were awarded with official USEF Medals.

Judging this year’s finals were Michael Craghead of Livermore, California, Kim Crumpler of Simpsonville, Kentucky, and Tim Lockard of Russell, Iowa.
