Upper Marlboro, Maryland – Lindsey Roberts of Kingwood, TX, riding Snippet, and Martha Ingram of Nashville, TN, aboard Fonteyn, claimed the 3’6″ and 3’3″ Grand Amateur-Owner Hunter Championship titles on Thursday, October 3, at the Capital Challenge Horse Show.

Sharing the Adult Amateur Hunter Grand Championship honors at the show, which continues through Sunday, October 6, at the Prince George’s County Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD, were Ellen Toon on Playmaker and Vivian Yowan on Calou.

Roberts was a bit taken aback with her Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’6″ Grand Championship title, sponsored by Finally Farm, which came after she had claimed the Amateur-Owner 3’6″, 18-35 championship title, sponsored by The Hallman Family and MerryLegs South LLC.

“This feels like a dream, it truly does,” Roberts said. She and Snippet won all three over-fences classes in the division and took third place in the under saddle for her tricolor honors. “We’ve had a phenomenal year, but to be able to come back east to the Capital Challenge Horse Show and show against the best of the best and have it go so well, it makes it that much more sweet.”

In the Amateur-Owner Hunters 3’3″, the grand championship honors, sponsored by Missy Luczak-Smith, went to Martha Ingram and Fonteyn, owned by John and Stephanie Ingram LLC. Ingram also collected the Best Amateur-Owner 3’3″ Rider Award, sponsored by Spring Mill Farm.

Ingram and Fonteyn won two over-fences classes and the under saddle to top the Amateur-Owner Hunter 3’3″, 18-35 division before claiming the 3’3″ grand title. Ingram also emerged victorious in the World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) Amateur-Owner 3’3″ Challenge riding Airport 48.
