We’re very excited to see so many Royal Prince offspring earning high placings in the USDF awards rankings and the All-Breeds Awards.  It’s particularly nice to see offspring competing with professionals and amateurs alike.   Starting with the youngest of the award winners, Releve HTF (ds. Cordoba) earned the Reserve Championship title in the USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding  (DSHB) Yearling Fillies.  Another yearling filly by Royal Prince, the flashy Royal Odessa (ds. Chardonay) ranked 13th in the same division and was the ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Reserve Champion for Yearling Fillies.  “Odessa” is owned by Karen Radley and bred by Paulette Ziegler.  In the USDF 3-Year Old Colts and Geldings DSHB Royal Tourmalet SPF (ds. Armin) finished the year with a 7th place ranking, in addition to his 6th place ranking in the 3-Year Materiale Horse of the Year standings.  Royal Tourmalet is owned by Joanna Gray-Randle and bred by Gina Leslie. In the USDF Stallion DSHB, Sally Hanson’s Royal Ramiro (ds. Ramiro’s Son II) ranked 3rd with a median score of 80.025%. Charlotte’s Creek Farm’s Rose CCF (ds. Enrico Caruso) ranked 5th for USDF 4 & 5 Year Old Mares Materiale and earned the ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Awards Championship for the same division.  In the USDF Vintage Cup Awards for Third Level, Royal Request (ds. Letkiss) finished the year with a 16th place ranking.  In the AHS All-Breeds Awards Royal Request earned a 5thplace ranking for Third Level Adult Amateur with owner/rider Peta Wyllie.  The Jennifer Roth owned Royal Prince gelding Reebok (ds. Arrian) ranked 11th in USDF Fourth Level Horse of the Year and 14th in USDF Third Level Musical Freestyle.  Reebok took Reserve Championships for AHS All-Breeds Awards in Third Level Musical Freestyle and Fourth Level Open.  Also earning All-Breeds Awards were Roca (ds. Lester’s Patron) and Remembrance (ds. Martini).  Roca and owner Jennifer Sotiroff were Reserve Champions for ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Third Level Open and Third Level Adult Amateur.  Last but not least, Remembrance and owner Brianna Wilson were ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Awards Champions for Junior/Young Rider First Level.
