Dressage at Heavenly Waters

Over Memorial Day weekend, Michael Bragdell took a few of our riding horses and students to MDA’s Dressage at Heavenly Waters in Bel Air.  Only about 30-minutes from the farm, it’s great to have these closer show options.  With Mitch & Lara Mitchelson’s Faberge Blue (Contango-Democraat) Michael handily won all three of his First Level Tests with scores ranging from 74-76%. Faberge’s obedience and the harmony between he and Michael is a highlight of every test.  Faberge was bred by Marie Emrey of Lazy J Sporthorses.  Michael also rode Kaja Brix’s Feurbach (Florestan-Welcome) at Fourth Level.  This was only Feuerbach’s second outing at Fourth Level and he won both his tests with scores of 67% & 73% and was High-Score at Fourth Level.

Which stallion would be a good match for her mare, the caller asks anxiously. With scientific advances in artificial insemination, the choices for a perfect partner have never been greater, but that doesn't mean the selection process is any simpler. DiBerardinis asks the owner a few questions about her mare and suggests she complete Hilltop's online questionnaire. After reading it, she and the caller will talk again to discuss the options.
