PVDA 14th Annual Ride for Life
The PVDA Ride for Life show is always a fun one to fit in our schedule and benefits a wonderful cause in fundraising for the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. This year, Michael took Faberge Blue and Debonair MF down to Prince Georges Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD. Faberge Blue, owned by Lara & Mitch Mitchelson and bred by Lazy J Sporthorses, won his Fourth Level Freestyle with an impressive 77%. Debonair MF, owned and bred by Marydell Farm, won both his USEF Four-Year Old classes including his Qualifier with an overall 8.2. Well done!
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.
