He also earned the qualifying score for the five-year-old championships in 2011. In 2012 USDF year-end awards, Robby was 4th at First Level Adult Amateur in the Hanoverian All-breeds category and 13th overall at Adult Amateur, First Level. Robby qualified for Regional Championships at Third Level in 2014. Unfortunately he completely shattered his right hind fetlock later that fall and had to be put down.

Brienza (Bergamon-Davignon/Donnerhall), a 2000 elite Hanoverian mare, was selected
and purchased as a weanling by Caryn from a private farm in Germany. Brienza earned a
7.3 at her in-hand inspection, scoring 8s on her walk and impulsion/elasticity. At her Mare
Performance Test (when in foal), she earned a final score of 7.33. Brienza is currently
schooling 4th/PSG. She was one of eight horses selected to participate in the 2005 Olympic
Incubator Clinic with Betsy Steiner. Brienza has been sold to a home in Texas.  (Photo by Kay Geraghty)
