Lynn Jayne's Our Day Farm Takes Multiple Championships at Spring Spectacular I

Championships From the Pony Division to the Equitation

Wayne, IL – June 10, 2014 – Lynn Jayne’s Our Day Farm of Elgin, was on a hometown winning streak this last week at the Showplace Production’s Spring Spectacular I Horse Show at Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne. Jayne and her horses took multiple championships throughout the week in divisions from the ponies to the national equitation.
The combination of Jayne and professional rider Tammy Provost of Sheridan, IN, were a force to be reckoned with in the Pre-Green Hunter Division. Provost rode the young horse, Asscher, owned by Animal Eye Consultants to the Championship in the Pre-Green Hunters 3’, winning three out of the five classes.
In the 3’3” Pre Green Hunters, Provost rode Beth Bailey’s GamePlan to the division Championship, won the $1,000 USEF Pre-Green Stake Class and also the $1,000 Pre-Green Classic making a clean sweep of the division.
