NEWS
2016
  • Diamond Dureza (Diamond Hit/Salope) qualified for Region 2 championships at both Second Level Adult Amateur and Musical Freestyle and Third Level AA. She earned a trip to the U.S. Dressage Finals for musical freestyle.
2015
  • Tanqueray MRF (Totilas/Revlon-Rohdimont) had a successful year, ending as Champion (74.7%) at the  USDFBC Colt/Gelding Championship, Champion (74.113%) at the USDFBC North Central Colt/Gelding Championship, Co-Reserve Champion (77.5%) with the American Hanoverian Society and WDCTA Champion Colt.

2014
  • Diamond Dureza (Diamond Hit/Salope) ended her first show season spectacularly! Reserve Champion at Training Level-Addult Amatuer at Region 2 championships, seventh at the U.S. Dressage Finals and took home the high-point award for non-FEI for the American Hanoverian Society.
  • Rapazzini qualified for Region 2 championships at Third Level. Sadly, he had to be put down in November, due to a freak accident, in which he shattered his right hind fetlock. Heartbreaking, as he was really coming along and had been with us since we were present at his birth and through all his years until the end.
  • Tanqueray MRF (Totilas/Revlon-Rohdimont), 2013 gelding, purchased from Shannon and Doug Langers of Maple Run Farm in December. Looking forward to this one's career!
2013 
  • Rapazzini is Champion at Second Level, Adult Amateur, WDCTA Year-End Awards. (Pretty good accomplishment, considering he only went to two shows to meet qualifications, and at the same time, qualified for USDF Regional Championships that weekend as well. Guess he's good under pressure.)
 
2012
  • Rapazzini 4th in USDF All-Breeds American Hanoverian Society - Adult Amateur at First Level 
  • Rapazzini 9th in USDF Horse of the Year - Adult Amateur at First Level
2011
  • Steffen Peters & Janet Foy Symposium, "Dressage Through the Levels": Salope and Rapazzini were chosen to represent the levels of Grand Prix and Second Level, respectively.
  • Rapazzini earns qualifying score for Markel Young Horse Championships as a five-year-old.
2010 
  • Rapazzini qualifies for four-year-old Young Horse Championships. In only three shows -- the only ones he's ever participated in, Rapazzini receives an invitation to participate in the Young Horse Championships at Lamplight Equestrian Center in July 2010. He finishes 8th in the optional warm-up class and 11th in the championship.
2009 
  • Salope has triplets!  Spring of '09, via embryo transfer, in one flush she had three embryos which were implanted in three recipient mares and all survived to term. Very unusual.  They were born almost exactly one week apart, beginning on April 26, with the last being born, appropriately so, on Mother's Day, May 10. Their names are (using my usual naming convention which is to name them after wineries or some aspect of wine making, beginning with the letter "D", the first letter of the sire's name): Diamond Dureza, Diamond Dolce and Diamond Caliente.
2008 
  • GOT THE GOLD! In only four shows in 2008 and winning the Grand Prix class against four other rides with a final score of 65.417%, Caryn earned her USDF Gold Medal in August on Salope.

2007

  • GOT THE SILVER! Caryn earned her USDF Silver Medal in one season of showing with Salope in 2007.
  • LINDA ZANG & STEPHEN CLARKE SYMPOSIUM, APRIL '07
    Caryn and Salope were selected to demonstrate movements at Prix St. George level (a good tune-up for the show season, since Caryn had never shown at this level before!). When Linda Zang saw the changes on this horse, she said, "I know you are here to present movements for Prix St. George, but let's see the two's. Having never done them before, we we actually pulled them off!
