Elieta (Riverman - Ariadus)

riv_elita_aw2016_uniquek_benedict-webRiverman daughter, Elieta (Riverman x Uniqueka/Ariadus) has had a summer packed full of exciting accomplishments.  The 4-year old mare completed her AHHA Mare Performance Test with flying colors.  Given her pedigree, it’s no surprise that her free jumping talent was a highlight. She earned multiple scores of 8 in the free jumping portion. She finished as Reserve Champion Mare at her inspection site.

Elieta is being trained as an event horse, a discipline multiple Riverman offspring have shone brightly in. In one outing at the Future Event Horse 4-Year Old level, Elieta qualified for the West Coast Future Event Horse Championships located in Woodside, California.  To qualify, Elieta finished 2nd at Future Event Horse class at Rebecca Farms with a score of 79.21.  Congratulations to owner and breeder Kathleen Benedict on Elieta’s success and best of luck at the championships!
