Dressage at Stone Tavern II

dsc_0060crop2_web800x800Jess and Michael had a great show in New Jersey this past weekend with a lot of important results. Boxster A (Bugatti-Weltbekkant), bred/owned by Iris Aberbach, won both his FEI Test of Choice classes and was High-Score FEI on Saturday. Sternlicht (Soliman de Hus-Rascalino), bred by Rachel Ehrlich and owned by Hilltop Farm, scored 71.1% to win the Developing Prix St. Georges. Debonair MF (Doctor Wendell MF-Rotspon), bred/owned by Marydell Farm, was 2nd in the USEF 4-yr Olds both days, including earning a 7.8 overall in his qualifier. Carol McPhee’s SenSation HW (Sunday-Dancier) took in his first recognized show and won the 4-yr old tests both days with great comments from the judges. It was an especially big weekend for Anne Howard’s Finery (Furstenball-Diamond Hit). He earned an 8.04 in his 2nd time out in the FEI 6-yr olds. This score should qualify him for the US Young Horse Championships and that will fulfill his lifetime sport requirements for both the GOV and ISR/Oldenburg! Jess and Hilltop’s homebred mare Quinzy (Qredit-Cordoba) continued their winning streak. Competing this time at Training Level, they swept all their classes with scores in the 70’s and were High-Score Training Level both days.
