Shown is Kelsey Shinn of Deerfield Beach, Florida and her IDEAL gelding, Inisfree (aka Freebiscuit) at a Hunter Jumper Show  at Rocking Horse Stables in Altoona, Florida early in April.

This was Free's second h/j show, and his first show over fences (competing in the Long Stirrup and Green Horse divisions). The fences were small but Kelsey says she  didn't want to take the chance of overfacing him his first time out. Not only did the two have a have a great time, but as a result from the two days was they came home with 3 blue ribbons, 2 second places, 1 third place, 1 fourth place, one fifth place, and two sixth places (out of a 16 horse division). Next time Kelsey and Free will be competing at the 2'6" and 2'9" level courses...versus the 18" and 2'3" as they did at Rocking Horse.
