JP Training riders and horses had a fabulous time at the 2013 Menlo Charity Show with Katherine Gaffney riding Franko in hunters and equitation and Fiesta in jumpers, Katrina Garnett riding Shakyra in jumpers, and Katie Malher riding Top Class in hunters and medals. Ponies Jessie and Sweet Pea came along for the lead line class, a Menlo tradition.
Katrina Garnett and Shakyra after their big win at Spruce Meadows did not disappoint at Menlo!

For the second year in a row, Jan served as chef d’equipe for the winning 1.00m Prix des Nations team at Spruce Meadows. This year, it was JP Training rider Katrina Garnett and her lovely mare Shakyra that helped earn the big win. Congrats to trainer and rider! And congrats to the rest of the H.A.P.P.E.E. Horses team!
^^The happy trainer, rider, and horse. Jan looks good in the winner’s stetson and Shakyra looks even better in the champion ribbon.^^

^^Special thank you to Willow Tree’s Guy Thomas for helping prepare both JP Training’s horses, Shakyra and Catherine Hannay’s new horse Landiego. Catherine and Landiego were great in the 1.20m with fast times and accurate riding. Great job, Catherine!^^
A very big congratulations to Katrina Garnett on her new mare Shakyra. A nice smooth round for the pair at their first show together. Special thank you to Guy Thomas and Willow Tree Farm for taking good care of our girls at The Oaks.
