Sussex Dressage Show
The heatwave isn’t slowing us down! While everyone at the farm was busy with inspection prep, Michael traveled up to the Sussex Dressage Show in New Jersey. Friday was a super start with the horses. Faberge Blue won his Open Prix St. Georges with a 72%, SenSation HW earned an impressive 8.66 in his USEF 4-Year Old test, and Qredit earned a 77.5% in his Intermediare II. On Saturday, Qredit again won the Intermediare II with another strong score of 73.947%. In their USEF Qualifying classes, Faberge Blue confidently won the Developing Prix St. Georges with a 72.647% and SenSation HW secured his win in the USEF 4-Year Olds with an overall 8.04. Well done!
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.
