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!

Congratulations to all the owners and breeders whose offspring contributed to these wins.
Chris Hickey and Cabana Boy added another national title to their resume by winning the 2009 USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship on August 21-23. The past two years, Chris and Cabana had traveled to Kentucky to compete in and win the 5 Year Old and 6 Year Old National Young Horse Dressage Championships, making them the first pair to win all three.
