Blue Goose Dressage Show #1
It was a beautiful, sunny day for the first show in the Blue Goose Dressage Series this year. Hilltop trainer Jess Fay the young mares Qindle and Quinzy had a great outing on Wednesday. Quinzy HTF (Qredit-Cordoba) was 4th in First Level Test 3 with a 69% earning her first qualifying score for Regionals. Qindle HTF (Qredit-Royal Prince) was super in her first Training Level Test 3 and earned a 70% and the High-Score Training Level award. Michael’s student Beth Custalow had a successful first-time outing at Prix St. Georges with her longtime partner Bvlgari (Bordeaux-Rohdiamant). Looking forward to the next few shows!
Once again we made the long drive out to the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL for the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships. Michael qualified two horses for the Championships this year.
With each step in their careers, the Riverman offspring continue to impress us with the versatile athleticism that has allowed them to succeed at the highest levels of most every discipline. Over the years we’ve seen Riverman ranked near the top the USEF Leading Sire rankings in multiple disciplines.
