Trisha Yamber and This Is Personal win the 2012 Congress Equine Chronicle Masters Hunter Under Saddle
Competing against a stellar line-up of 16 other teams in this premier event on Saturday, October 27, This Is Personal, with Trisha Yamber in the irons, are named Congress Champions! Sired by These Irons Are Hot and out of Personal Invite, This Is Personal comes from a long line of successes in the family.
“This was a really special night for Trisha,” remarked Carl Yamber. “We showed his mom and his dad throughout their whole careers, and then his mom died.” Personal Invite was the honor roll pleasure mare, and These Irons Are Hot is a Congress Champion, NSBA High Point earner with multiple show record accomplishments. “Personal Invite had an embryo who won the NSBA World Show 2 Year Olds this year. We raised This Is Personal ourselves.” These first two foals of Personal Invite have done quite well!
Trisha commented on her ride in the Masters, “He was really good… very relaxed… very calm. He did everything I asked him to do. When you show them for the first time, they don’t know how to cheat you anyway, so they’re just depending on you. He listened to me and trusted me.”
What’s next? “We’ll do the futurities next year. I wish they had a 2-Year-Old event at the World Show, but they don’t. So, we’ll just wait until next year when he’s 3 and hit the futurities next year.” Yamber joked, “Then again, maybe I’ll just retire and end on a high note.”
I mean, really… how do you top this?
Yamber and This Is Personal take home the $50,000 check, along with the Champion title. A first for Trisha Yamber.
