It was their first time off of the property and first trailer ride- good kids! Thanks to Cara Klothe, Quinnten Alston, and Maplewood Warmbloods for another great show. Congratulations to all the competitors!

June 2014:  Our first show of the year was VADA/NOVA Spring at Morven Park  April 5 & 6.  Shyriana (Shakespeare RSF/EM Fhrance-Fabriano): Tr 3 5th 68.2%, Tr. 2 6th 64.643%.  Shyriana has been purchased by Marcus Orlob and Shannon Stevens, so look for her in the show ring with them.  Shundance (Shakespeare RSF- EM Chee Chee-Contucci)- tr. 1 1st 68.125%, tr. 3 3rd 69%, tr. 2 5th 64.821%.  Shundance has been purchased by Courtney Burns and both are in a training program with Shannon and Marcus.  Hhot Tamale (Hotline/EM Chee Chee-Contucci)- her first time at third level.  She is just 6 years old and has been ridden and trained by Cara Klothe from the beginning. 3rd level test 1 3rd place 65.395%, third level test 3 3rd place 64.359%. PVDA Spring May 17-18:  Hhot Tamale-  third level test 2 1st place 65.854%, third level test 3 3rd place 61.923%.  Francesca B (Fabuleaux/Don Schufro)- first level test 1 4th place 65.0%.

Bucks County Horse Park I   5/3:  Jenn Pass on Whuthering Heights (Widmark/Gold Luck) first 2 5th (65.541%), first 3 1st (64.67%).  Vicky Sher on Whellington (Welcome S/Archipel)first 1 1st (68.621%), first 2 1st (69.189%)

It was a fun horse show for me June 1 at the Bucks County Horse Park recognized dressage show II. Cara Klothe rode Rhaisonette (Rosentanz/Fuerst Heinrich) for her first ever time at second level where they received a 68.714%, first place and were second level champions. Then we took my four year old Shabrina (Shakespeare RSF/ EM Wyneth L-Widmark/Davignon) for her second time off the property and first time in a dressage ring. The first test was full of baby bobbles, but she pulled it together for their second test where they received 1st place with a 69.464%. Good baby girl! There were horses that I bred there too- Whuthering Heights (Widmark/ EM Giadonna- Gold Luck/Donnerhall), ridden by Jennifer Symons Pass at second level and Sheyenne, a 5 year old (Shakespeare RSF/ EM Giadonna- Gold Luck/Donnerhall) ridden by Sara Schmitt. She placed first in training test 1 with a 71.667 and 2nd in training 2 with a 69.107%.

Alice Tarjan debuted Somer Hit (Sandro Hit/EM Rhussia-Rotspon) in the Developing Grand Prix at Centerline Events at HITS on May 17 where they received 70.188% and 70.789% in the Inter II. At VADA/NOVA Summer June 6, they received a 69.474% in the Inter II and 67.312% in the Developing Grand Prix.  At Dressage at the Ranch June 21, they received the win at Inter II with a 70.526%.  EM Rhussia can sure produce good ones! (Dheputy is also out of her among many others)
Whirlpool (Widmark/Glimmer-Grundstein) qualified for the National Intermediare Championships at Gladstone June 12-15th. He was ridden by Melissa Jackson of FL. They placed a respectable 9th in the PSG (69.263%), 15th in the Inter 1 (66.763%) and 12th in the freestyle (70.725%).  It is cool to note that Shakespeare would have been a top 6 qualifier there if Marcus was an American citizen (he's working on that). Marcus reports that in addition to Shakespeare's improving passage and piaffe, they are now able to get up to 17 one tempi changes.
At VADA/NOVA Summer Dressage at Morven Park June 6th, we went to our first breed show of the year.  We only went to the breed show where we met up with our good friend and former employee, Quinnten Alston who handled the horses for us in hand.  Shabrina (Shakespeare RSF/Widmark) won her 4 year old and older Maiden mares class (80.450%), the Mare Championship and reserve Grand Championship.  She also won the 3,4,5 year old Mare Materiale class with an 81.1%.  Dheputy was a bit of a naughty boy but he managed to receive the highest score of the entire show in the stallions class (80.750%), was stallion champion, and then was a jerk in the championship class, where he was beat by horses with lower scores.    He redeemed himself in the GOV class where he trotted in hand nicely, winning with an 81.4%, followed by Shabrina in 2nd place (79.6%) with the Grand Champion of the show placing 5th.  That's horse showing for you!

Another horse I bred did well in a breed show- Rhoanoke (Riccione/Verb. Pr. Whrigley- Welcome S).  In the Carbery Fields Sport Horse Show I June 7 in Lebanon, CT, he won the yearling colts/geldings class (79.1%), was reserve champion young horse and reserve grand Champion.  He also won the GOV class with a 78.6%.

At Dressage at the Ranch June 22.  Shabrina was a bit intimidated by the close up judges booth, but managed a 62.6% for 4th place in training level test 3.  Hhot Tamale (with Cara riding and training) really hit her stride at third level, placing 1st in test 2 with a 68.171% and 2nd in test 3 with a 69.872%. 

Other winning RSF horses that have been reported to me: UNH Dressage June 21-22:  Lheonidas ridden by her AA owner Karin Giordano- Tr. test 1 75.833% first place and high score training level, and Kristen Schwaegerle on Fhifth Avenue- first level test 3- 2nd 72.903% and 1st place on Sunday first level test 3- 69.516%.  Keri Damsgaard reports that Fhortune Cookie did well at their first show together- the PVDA Ride For Life 6/21-22.  Tr 2- 5th and 2nd (62.679% and 74.464%), tr 3- 2nd and 5th (67.4% and 64.6%)
Marta Renilla in TX has done well with Rhustler (Rousseau/EM Rheporter-Royal Prince) and her boyfriend Anartz Chanca has done well with Sheriff (Shakespeare RSF/EM Gharbo-Gold Luck).  They live in TX.  Emerald Classic I 3/16: Rhustler first 3 3rd (71.290%), Materiale 1st (78.888%).  Sheriff tr 3 2nd (68%) 1st 3 3rd (65.645%).  Emerald Classic II 3/17:  Sheriff tr 3 2nd (71.8%), 1st 3 6th (64.355%).  Rhustler 1st 3 1st (72.581%), Materiale 1st (79.4%).  WKF Spring I 3/22:  Sheriff tr 3 2nd (63.8%), 1st 3 1st (68.065%).  Rhustler FEI 5 year old 1st (77.6%), 1st 3 1st (71.774%).  WKF Spring II 3/23:  Sheriff tr 3 1st (67.4%), 1st 3 2nd (66.29%).  Rhustler 1st 3 1st (69.677%), FEI 5 year old 1st (80.2%)
Congratulations to all!
