North Salem, NY – May 21, 2010 – It only took one take for Its a Wrap and rider/owner Sloan Brown as they clinched the Adult Amateur Hunter 36-45 division Championship and the Grand Adult Amateur Hunter title.

The dark bay gelding covered the ground and met each fence with precision and obedience to win all the jumping classes in the division.  Always hotly contested, It’s a Wrap and Brown triumphed over 16 other entries for the title.
