Rider Name Clarified

Madeleine Wood and newly crowned world’s champion and world’s champion of champions Take It From The Top won the Five-Gaited Pleasure Championship at Saint Louis National Charity for 3 Sisters Stables LLC. She showed under the direction of Jim and Fay Lowry.

In the Oct. 5th issue Take It From The Top’s rider Emma Wood was misidentified. It was in fact Emma’s sister Madeleine Wood who showed to win Saint Louis National’s Five-Gaited Pleasure Championship after earning the reserve title in the qualifier under the direction of Jim and Fay Lowry.

Madeleine and Take It From The Top have had  great season so far. They debuted at Lexington Junior League and won the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Pleasure class then went to Illinois State Fair and won the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited blue ribbon. They proceeded on to Louisville and despite their short time together as a team, put together two winning rides to win the Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Pleasure - Sec. I World’s Championship then returned in the junior exhibitor championship to capture the world’s champion of champions title.

At Saint Louis National Charity, Madeleine’s great week continued and she earned two more wins with her other teammate Buckles Boots ‘n Spurs. They were the unanimous Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited Grand Champions and also won the qualifier with a unanimous decision.
