Mandy Porter of Encinitas, CA, and Wild Turkey Farm’s WT Ca-Pow! celebrated their first Grand Prix win as a team in the $25,000 Adequan® Welcome Grand Prix. Their four fault, 43.623 second jump-off beat out thirty-six other entries for the win.
“He is 10, bred by Wild Turkey Farm, which is really exciting because he is an American-bred horse,” Porter continued. “I have gotten to ride both his mother and father, we are like family, it’s really special. I am really thankful to Wild Turkey Farm and our relationship. He is just a little bit his own style. I am encouraging him to be himself yet, still get it done. He is a little bit unorthodox, so he has had to learn how to do it correctly. He wants it really bad, he goes home at the end of the day and thinks about what he just did. He is always trying to fix it.”
