I am so sorry to have been doing other projects!! But we had another big flood come through with the remnants of TS Lee and had fence to repair and then horses to work...it is never ending!
In any case, here is a lovely write up of a three generation family of riders in Europe. They have Dandy de la Roche who was the champion 5 year old of Switzerland in 2010 and have great hopes for him in the future upper levels of competition. Dandy is by Dressage Royal and THIS is a video that you can watch.
On the horse training front, we have been enjoying the horses immensely! Every one is making lots of progress and moving along in their training with their riders getting itchy feet to find some competitions in the near future.
Here are some snap shots of our 2004 Weltmeyer son Wyatt WF -
He is gaining strength and power and I am quite excited to polish things a bit more. Then the hunt will be on for a show!! :)
Speaking of shows, here are some snaps of Wizard WF (by Waldaire). He is schooling all the counter canter and single flying changes are easy peasy...time to start working on the stuff for Third Level and beyond! :)
And then there is this lovely update from a client in NJ with her 2006 Waldaire gelding showing in the hunters -
Thought Id give you a qucik update on Warrick. Hes fantastic:) Went to his first away horse show - Monmouth, and walked of the trailer with no prep and no schooling the jumps and marched right around like a little pro. He couldnt have been any better. He showed in a 2'6" hunter division and out of 12 horses he did pretty well for his first time out. He never looked at a fence and was great about all his lead changes. His highest ribbon was a 3rd, but i cant tell you how proud we all were of him, especialy with alot of seasoned horses in this particualr division. Attached is a picture of him, not the best but a great start for sure. You will find all his rounds at Monmouth on my youtube page as well.
Hopefully this update gets to some customers interested in breeding to Waldaire - I wouldnt do it any other way!
