Elisa Wallace Awarded Stackhouse Saddle for Classic Preliminary Three-Day Win
Leesburg, VA, USA
Out of each of the four winners of classic Preliminary three-day events in 2009, one winner was chosen at random to receive a Stackhouse saddle. This year's recipient of this prestigious prize went to Elisa Wallace, 27, of Alpharetta, Georgia.
"Wow, this is amazing!" exclaimed a near-speechless Wallace, who admitted her old Crosby Prix de Nations saddle needed replacing.
Partnered with Lela Wulf's nine-year-old off-the-track-Thoroughbred gelding Good For Me (aka 'Goody'), the pair won the Hagyard Midsouth CCI* (long-format) at the Kentucky Horse Park on October 15th.
Sadly, Goody was euthanized mere weeks after his big win in Kentucky from colic complications. "Winning this saddle because of Goody is really bittersweet," said Wallace. "He was such a special horse."
Visit the Team Wallace website to discover how Wallace has made a name for herself in the eventing community, and also learn more about Goody's amazing career.
Congratulations to Wallace and a special thank you to David Stackhouse and Leslie Gleave of Stackhouse Saddles, for their continued support of the Classic Series, which includes the SmartPak Equine Training Three-Day Events.
