I'll start with the highlights:
Mo was the #1 USEF Dressage Breeder of the Year and #2 USEF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding (DSHB) Breeder of the Year. She was also the #3 USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year and the #4 USDF DSHB Breeder of the Year. The USEF calculates actual results of all the horses shown and the USDF calculates the the results of the top 5 horses in each category- kind of a crazy system, in my opinion.
Dheputy, my homebred 4th generation approved stallion, was the #1 USDF Stallion of the Year with an 80.750%, a title he also held in 2013.
In his first year at this level, my homebred stallion Shakespeare RSF was 5th in the USDF Horse of the Year at Intermediare 1 with a score of 71.623%, ridden by Marcus Orlob. He was also 3rd in the AHS All Breeds category.
Rolling Stone Farm owned offspring of Shakespeare RSF did well in the USDF year end standings, too. Shopper (E.M. dam by Widmark) was the #3 Three Year Old Colt or Gelding with an 80.0%. He was the #1 USDF All Breeds winner for the GOV in that category.
Shabrina (full sister to Shopper and a Special Premium Candidate) was the #3 USDF Maiden/Yeld Mare with a score of 80.450%. She was #2 USDF All Breeds for the GOV in this category.
For Materiale 4 & 5 Year Old Mares, Shundance (E.M. dam by Contucci) was #7 (78.7%) and #2 USDF All Breeds for GOV. She was ridden by Shannon Stevens. Shabrina was #4 USDF GOV All Breeds.

Many thanks to those buyers of Rolling Stone Farm horses and also to Quinnten Alston, handler for the DSHB classes, to Marcus Orlob who is Shakespeare RSF's rider and trainer and last, but not least, to Cara Klothe and Olivia Steidle, riders for Rolling Stone Farm owned horses.
