For all of your Dressage needs
Thanks to the incredible support of my sponsors, clients, friends and family, 2014 was a very successful year. Highlights included Zar finishing 7th at the Festival of Champions Intermediare National Championships. Zar then also went on to win the Championship at both the USDF Region 8 Championships and the US Dressage Finals at Intermediate B. Warsteiner finished the season with a 70.3% Grand Prix median, finishing 13th in the USDF Horse of the Year standings. Warsteiner also won the Region 8 Championship at Grand Prix Freestyle In his first season at FEI, Romantico SF finished Reserve Champion USDF Horse of the Year at Intermediare I, and 3rd at the US Dressage Finals at Prix St Georges. I was also awarded the USEF Owner of the Year award (out of over 7850 owners).
2015 also is looking to be a very exciting year. Zar and Warsteiner will both be competing at the Grand Prix level, including Freestyle. Romantico will be competing at Prix St Georges, Intermediare I and Freestyle. The newest addition to my show-string is Damani, a 10 year old Hanoverian mare, who will be making her Grand Prix debut.
Competing my own horses is very expensive, but allows me to develop them carefully with no external pressures. My main goal is always having a happy, healthy and sound horse who can develop both mentally and phsyically to his/her fullest potential. I currently have a super group of young FEI horses who have been successful and still have a lot more to offer as they become stronger. I rarely sell my main competition horses after the partnership we have developed through so many years, therefore, finances are always tight, and any help is greatly appreciated. Estimated show expences for 2015 are $15,000.
