Six days of premium equestrian competition in Stanhope concluded Sunday afternoon with the exciting BMO Grand Prix. The course, designed by Kip Jones, proved to be difficult and challenging. Nancy Marshall and her horse Allister jumped a spectacular round and were named BMO Grand Prix Champions.

Jill Swain and her horse Fiamo placed second in the event and Jen Sarsfield and her horse Ozaria placed third.

"Congratulations to the winners at yesterday's spectacular event, and our sincerest thank you to the more than 100 local volunteers whose dedicated work made Gingerwood a success. From the exciting equestrian competition to the pony rides, activities at BMO Fan Centre and the kids' horse college, this was a wonderful opportunity for competitors and families to experience a special part of Prince Edward Island and Atlantic Canada," said Christine Cooper, Vice-President, New Brunswick and PEI, BMO Bank of Montreal.
