Quartet Wins Big at Devon
The weanling filly Quartet (Qredit-Arrian) took center stage during Dressage at Devon and brought home some huge scores and wins for breeder/owner Michelle Reilly. Quartet started her day with a win in the Fillies of 2014 class with a huge score of 86.1%. She was Reserve Champion in the Devon Foal Championship, and then floated her way to the win in the USDF/GAIG East Coast Foal Championship. King Santacruz, who handles for Hilltop Farm during Devon, presented the filly for all her wins. This filly’s show brought back memories of Michelle’s last trip to Devon when Quartet’s sire Qredit won the Grand Championship for Michelle who owned him at the time. Congratulations Michelle!
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.
