Intermediare II FL 2016:

Intermediare I freestyle:

Shakespeare RSF has a new trainer, Marcus Orlob. Marcus is a beautiful rider and trainer whom Steffen Peters complimented highly at the USDF Trainer's Symposium last year. Marcus trained for many years with Hubertus Schmidt and was his bereiter. Shakespeare and he are in Wellington, FL for the 2013-14 show season and we hope to get them in the show ring after some training issues have been resolved. Shakespeare is a happy horse under Marcus' training.

Foaling Report: Named Top Colt at the 2004 RSF Inspection!
Foaling report: EM Acapella had a really dark (black???, dark brown???) colt on 4/2 with NO WHITE ANTWHERE. He is tall, very pretty head and moves with a lot of knee and uphill already, like daddy, Sandro Hit.We have named him Shakespeare RSF (Will for short). Looks like he is shedding out to be a very dark brown. Goodbye dun baby fur! Fabulous mover! Inspection team recommended him as a stallion prospect.
