Owner/rider Michele Hinrichs reports "the first day he was very nervous and we had some rails in the first part of the course, but he finished up jumping really well. The 2nd day was the Finals of the Championships for the National Talent Squad division, it was really big, and super technical. He jumped wonderfully and we won 2nd place. It was an outstanding experience, and he is an outstanding horse." The pair finished 5th in Ontario for the Rising Star program (same as Talent Squad, for Ontario riders only). Graphiti W was bred by Sigma Warmbloods of Alberta.
