Lexington, Kentucky – Leslie Berndl held a double digit lead entering the cones phase of the Kentucky Classic CDE Sunday. She and Uminco held onto that advantage and emerged from the rain as USEF National Single Horse Driving Champions. Berndl (Newcastle, California) earned an 11.00, good for third place in the phase, and finished with a 141.53 total score. She was second in the dressage phase, second on the marathon, and the most consistently good single horse competitor over the entire weekend. This is Leslie Berndl’s first National Championship. Umnico was driven to a National Single Horse Championship in 2009, also at the Kentucky Classic CDE, by his owner Fritz Grupe.
Leslie, ever the gracious competitor, took the time to contact us via Facebook this evening to thank us for our support and for helping to keep her horses healthy with APF Pro. We couldn’t be more proud and delighted!
WAY TO GO, LESLIE!
Here’s Leslie and Uminco on the marathon course.
