The Canadian Eventing Committee has named Madison Park as Omega Alpha Canadian Event Horse of the Month for August.

Co-owned by Kyle and Jennifer Carter, Madison Park, an 11-year-old American thoroughbred gelding finished in fourth and was the top Canadian entry in the only Canadian FEI Eventing World Cup Qualifier, held Wits End Horse Trials, August 6-9, 2009, in Mansfield ON.

Out of extremely high caliber field of 34 starters in CIC 3*W division, Madison Park and Kyle Carter lay in 19th place, on a score of 59.2 penalty points, following dressage. With a perfectly clean cross-country round over David O'Connor's course, which saw only three riders make the time, and a clear jumping round, Carter moved up to finish in fourth place overall. The pair was the only entry to finish on their dressage score in the division.

"Madison Park is a great horse to have in the barn, and he is just now his is coming into his age and maturity for this level of competition," said Kyle Carter, who was originally of Calgary, AB, but now resides in Sparr, FL. "He is always unbelievable out on cross country, but to come back the next day and be faultless again in show jumping at Wits Ends was fantastic."

"We have just started using the Omega Alpha products, and we are very pleased with the selection and the quality. Canadian Eventing is lucky to have Omega Alpha sponsoring our sport," added Carter.
