Easy Street wins $20,000 Foxstone USHJA INTERNATIONAL DERBY
It was memorable moment when EZ (Easy Street) stepped into the ring to compete in his very first International Derby, last August at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley, BC. Recently purchased for Kaelyn to compete in the Junior Hunters & First Year Greens (Brent Balisky), he has surpassed our expectations. Piloted by Brent, they successfully captured first place in the Classic Round without taking any of the high options. As the sun set, the challenging Handy Round course proved to be taking it's toll on the horses later in the order. Under Brent's expect guidance, EZ bravely handled the challenge finishing with a second place ribbon. Their lead was enough to hold on to first place overall. Thank you to Georgia Hunt & Foxstone Stables for sponsoring this class, as well as the USHJA for supporting the Hunter Derbies. Also, thank you to Laura & Brent Balisky, the whole team @ Thunderbird Show Stables and the incredible Thunderbird Show Park team.
