Zulft SCF (April 20, 2004 - June 5, 2014)


"Right after losing "Z" I had to pull it together for a horse show that weekend (where he was also supposed to be). Not only was it a constant reminder, but I had to show the Grand Prix to try and earn my Gold Medal scores.  While I held it together to earn my Gold,  it pales in comparison to the pride I feel when I think of my accomplishments with Z.  Heather is known to take “problem” horses and he was no exception.   He came into Flying Change Farm right before I started working weekends there.  He came as a training level horse and I was a training level rider.  Together, under the guidance of Heather, we started learning about the dressage world. Zulft was a bull in a china shop and didn’t see the point of a half-halt (and neither did I since I didn’t know any better).  When I first started riding him, Heather was showing him at the recognized shows, and piloted him to a Championship at Regionals in a very competitive training level division.  The next spring,  I took over the reins at recognized shows to cruise around earning my Bronze Medal the first season I showed him.  After a very fast season, no joke, we came out of the ring at regionals and the gate keeper told us we had nice walk pirouettes and Heather informed me it was the fastest 2nd level test she had ever seen.  After that, we worked on building strength and trying to master that elusive thing called a half-halt.  Hard work, LOTS of patience and determination paid off because we won regionals at Third level the following year.  Last year we were able to go to Nationals and finished 6th in the Third level Musical Freestyle.  This year we came out at Fourth level and he tried so hard at the couple shows we went to.  Zulft taught me a lot and turned me into the rider I am today. I am so very grateful that Heather believed in him and was willing to give him the chance that no one else did. More importantly Heather allowed me to become his person.  My favorite memory is one day Heather was riding him and helping learn his balance she goes “If I was an amateur and he was the only horse I had to ride I would cry every day!”  Maybe I just didn’t know better, but all I do know even frustrating as some rides were, he always made me smile."   Alexandra Krossen
