PVDA Ride for Life
Michael Bragdell captured six wins in six classes at last weekend’s PVDA Ride for Life show. Qredit only competed in one test, but made it a winning one with a score of 67.76% in Saturday’s Third Level Test 1. Iris Aberbach’s Bugatti gelding, Boxster A, captured wins in Fourth Level Tests 1 & 2 with scores over 70% each day. The youngster in the group, Faberge Blue, made his second recognized show a standout by winning all three of his Training Level tests with scores of 70.8-73.6% for owners Mitch & Lara Mitchelson. Way to go!
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.
