Steve Schaeffer - High Performance/Performance Hunter 3'6" division champion

On Color Pearlz:
"She's a fabulous mare, I bought her for a client three years ago. We bought her as a great, athletic mare and quickly turned her into a hunter. We didn't buy her with the intention of having her here in the hunter ring, but we thought we had a hunter. Super scopey, I think she could be in the Welcome Grand Prix next door and do just fine. She's a blast to ride, I absolutely love riding her. It makes hunters fun again."

On his rounds:
"I loved the handy course. Being from the jumper ring, I like to turn so it was great fun. She's handling it all well. I used to mess up the trot jumps and canter them, but we got over that. She felt amazing today. I think we will put her in the derby tomorrow, let her owner ride and see how we do."

On Lamplight Equestrian Center:
"I'm so happy to be back, it's a great facility. It feels like home!"
