Qredit Wins Intermediaire I Debut
The Florida show season is in full swing and Michael took Sternlicht and Qredit out again this past weekend. Sternlicht has his second weekend at Third Level and earned scores of 69% & 71%. While he was a little distracted on Saturday, we’re still very happy with the willingness he has for the more difficult work. A crowd seems to follow him wherever he goes and he loves the attention. Qredit had his Intermediaire I debut on Saturday and handily won with a 71.7% from his forward, flowing test. Sunday’s Developing Prix St. Georges also scored above 71% – a consistent performance throughout the weekend. One more show for these two at the very end of the month and then back home to Hilltop for the start of breeding season.
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.
