Rubinero Competes at Global Dressage Festival CDI
Owner Dawn Bernardo and Rubinero (Rubinstein-Ex Libris) enjoyed one final show together before Rubinero’s move to Hilltop Farm. The last weekend in February they competed in the Global Dressage Festival’s CDI Adult-Amateur division and finished 4th in both the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I. It was a bittersweet weekend for Dawn knowing that it was her last time showing the handsome stallion, but she was also excited for the new opportunities that are coming for him and is looking forward to seeing lots of Rubinero foals on the ground in the coming years. Thank you Dawn for your willingness to share him with us!
History in the Making
Carola Koppelmann and Comic Hilltop FRH won the 2006 Nurnberger Burgpokal at CDI-W Frankfurt last weekend with a winning score of 74.10% in the final round. The Nurnberg Burgpokal is the German National Championships for horses in the small tour (Prix St. George) and is only open to 7 – 9 year-old horses.
Any who has endured the loss of a horse can understand the sorrow and despair that descends like a shroud over everyone involved. Any who has witnessed a horse struggle through serious illness can understand how emotional it is to watch horses fight for their lives and how much respect such horses earn amongst their caregivers.
