November 17, 2015 -- ZetrOZ, Inc., manufacturer of the UltrOZ Elite low intensity therapeutic ultrasound system, congratulates Alexandra Ozymy of Coppell, TX for winning the $5,000 North American League (NAL) Low Junior/Amateur-Owner West Coast Final, Presented by UltrOZ, at the Las Vegas National Horse Show, November 10-15, at the South Point Arena & Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Las Vegas National Horse Show is a championship event featuring "AA"-rated hunters, open jumpers, junior/amateur jumpers, and Grand Prix jumpers and draws top rider and horses from across the nation. Ozymy topped a competitive field of 25 qualified finalists in the first round and three in the jump-off aboard her own horse Curtis 57, an 8-year-old bay Holsteiner gelding. First to go in the jump-off, the pair kept their cool and produced a clear round in the fastest time of 37.177 to clinch the win. Chandler Meadows took second place aboard Petit Prince De Laume while Cristobal Callado took home third place riding Cassena.
"Going first is always really nerve-wracking," said the 17-year-old Ozymy. "I really had to discipline myself to ride my track and not worry about what everyone else was going to ride, just go in and ride my plan and if that was good enough to win then that was going to be great. I stuck to my plan and it paid off!"
Brian Collins, Director of Sales and Marketing for UltrOZ, presented Ozymy with her trophy from the Las Vegas National Horse Show. She also received an NAL coolerette, gift certificates, a gift bag with an assortment of gifts from the NAL including a commemorative NAL Finals stall plaque.
"I'd like to offer my congratulations to Ali who rode two beautiful rounds," said Collins. "We are proud to be a sponsor of the NAL and to support such talented riders as Ali and all those who compete in the NAL."
UltrOZ will be represented in Las Vegas again in less than two weeks when it participates in the 61st annual American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Convention and Trade Show, December 5-9. The AAEP is the world's largest professional organization dedicated to equine veterinary medicine and is a leading medical authority on the health and welfare of the horse. The AAEP Annual Convention attracts thousands of equine veterinarians, veterinary students, technicians, and exhibitors. Collins will be there demonstrating the state-of-the-art UltrOZ Elite.
