In the second week, Kim rode aviator to 1st place in the 7/8 year old young jumpers. Overall, this was a great show for Aviator.
Since Kim Farlinger started riding Zikina, the two have gone for 10 successive clear rounds at shows in Florida and New Jersey. In the Princeton show, Zikina placed third in two large classes 1.0 and 1.1 meters. She did compete in a 1.2 meter class and knocked down a rail with a minor rub, but still placed third.
