Highlights from Las Vegas National:
Rich Wins the $60k Grand Prix of California with Colgan Cruise
"[Del Mar, CA] The reigning World Cup Champion, Rich Fellers, once again rode away to victory in flawless fashion at Showpark Ranch and Coast on May 12th.
With the sun shining and the crowds filling up the stands, it was the place to be for some exhilarating competition. Fellers was just warming up with a solid one-two finish in the $10,000 1.40M Jumper Classic, presented by CardFlex. He then went on to steal the show with the only clear round in the $60,000 Grand Prix of California, presented by EQU Lifestyle Magazine. Giving his World Cup winning mount Flexible a well deserved week off from showing, Fellers was able to showcase some of his other notable mounts over the Grand Prix grass course at the Del Mar Horse Park."
"Victory in the $100,000 Hermes Grand Prix of Del Mar means they're one more (big) step closer to an Olympic spot
[Del Mar, CA] It’s all starting to feel a bit surreal for Rich Fellers, who rode the 16-year-old Irish stallion Flexible to his third straight win last night during the $100,000 Hermes Grand Prix of Del Mar...."

CHANGES AT RICH FELLERS STABLES LLC
MICHELLE NEGRA, who has been with us for eight years as our assistant trainer and barn manager, is moving back to Victoria, BC on August 1st to start her own business. We are sad to see her go, as she has been a huge part of RFS LLC, but happy to watch her start the next chapter in her career.
CHRIS FELLERS will become our new assistant trainer. He has grown up watching his parents navigate the showjumping industry, has been working hard learning the business, enjoys helping people, and is a talented rider in his own right. We are excited about all of the growth in our program and are looking forward to further progression of our riders and horses.
Summer Series has come to a close. Starting with the BC Open the first week of June at Thunderbird Showpark, then competing in the National, Pan American, and North American at Spruce Meadows, we finished the final week with 10 wins! Maddie Bergman on Mr Miracle Man, Ella Bruce on Zidane L, Sydney Denham on Colgan Cruise, Chris Fellers on Prince Lamborghini and Revenge, Rich Fellers on Coupis & Eloquent, Michelle Negra on Nurejev all won at least one competition. In the 1.20 competiton the last day, we secured 1st, 3rd, and 6th in an 18 horse jump off with our riders Sydney Denham on Colgan Cruise, Ella Bruce on Zidane L and Tiffany Martin on Clio 35. Kerri Grosslight and her mounts Sapphira Wade, Zandro and Coco del Pierre placed in several competitions.
Flexible wowed the crowds once again competing in the Nations Cup at the BC Open and among other placings, finishing 3rd in a blazing fast jump off the last week at the North American at the age of 20!
Another great opportunity to learn from one of show jumping's icons. Straightness, sensitivity and forwardness to the leg were big emphasis this year. Also the importance of flatwork to succeed over fences. Thanks so much to George for having such a huge influence on our program and putting so much into his clinics. We truly appreciate everything you do for us and our sport.
So impressed by all of our RFS students who participated and made us proud:
3'6 section: Tiffany Martin, Ella Bruce
4' section: Michelle Negra, Kerri Grosslight, Kimber Evers
4'3 section: Maddie Bergman, Raquel Davalos, Chris Fellers, Halie Miller, Jo Siefert
