A HUGE Thank You to Lori Racioppo for bringing Romantico to Flying Change Farm last winter and starting my partnership with this truly special horse.
We had a terrific show season including winning the Third Level Open Championship, not only at the Region 8 Championships, but also at the US Dressage Finals.
He also won a 4th Level class at Dressage At Devon and was 2nd in his other two classes there.
I am THRILLED to announce that Romantico now belongs to me, and joins my string of competition horses,  I have big plans for this one!
