Dressage at Devon 2012

Dressage at Devon was washed in colored for 2012. There were three Appaloosa Sport Horses and five Knapstruppers present for this year’s show. The Knapstruppers were all very lovely and it was their first year at Devon. I have to say the Knapstrupper IBC winner was a very lovely 2012 filly named Rapide.

I brought my mare Revs Go Go Dancer known as Lilly this year. This would be her third Devon appearance. She brought home the third place ribbon with 69.2%.

In second place was a colorful leopard pony named Fire Doggie. Fire Doggie is owned by Lisa Rasmuson and handled by Quinton Alston. They scored 70.0% for 2nd place.

Taking home the blue ribbon this year was Tribute to Chocklate a 7 year old son of Chocolate Confetti. Tribute to Chocklate is owned by Martha Mitchell and was handled by Quinnten Alston and scored a 72.9%.

I don’t have pictures yet. But once I do I’ll post them. Think about joining us in 2013. Devon is a great horse show and it’s one of my favorite events of the year. Yes I rather ride my horse but just being at Devon is an experience. Hope to see you in 2013!

Hollywood Hot Spot

"Woody" is a friendly, affectionate and quiet stallion with a leggy modern type, a well muscled hind end, good saddle position, a strong topline and loin connection on a short back. Demonstrates uphill movement with the reach, impulsion, and suspension expected from competitive sport horses. With his talent over fences and bold outgoing personality we also expect him to excel in combined training/eventing. Sticked at a true 16.1hh.

Very attractive head, slightly dished and takes a cob size bridle. Demonstrates remarkable gentlemanlike manners on the ground and under saddle even in the close proximity of mares at home and while showing. Was shown lightly at Training Level in USDF Region 2 Summer 2010. Schooling First Level (with some Second Level movements) over the winter and will resume competition in 2011. Woody is an especially excellent outcross for your mares with Waps Spot 2 and Chocklate Confetti mares. Fresh and frozen semen available.
