Griffindor - "Opie"
17.0 hh 2008 OLDENBURG GELDING
Opie & I have been a team since 2012.
Opie is a very sensitive and talented young horse. He puts his heart into his work, which has helped him move up the levels quickly. He is currently schooling all the Grand Prix movements & showing Prix St Georges.
Some of our near future goals include competing at Dressage at Devon, qualifying for Young Horse Championships in Developing Prix St Georges, & competing in CDIs.
Opie is a big talker, whinnies & nickers when he sees me & while he is waiting to be ridden. He turns his tongue upside down and out to the side after he gets a treat he REALLY loves.

DiMaggio & I have been a team since 2005
DiMaggio is huge - but he doesn't know it! He has a lot of natural balance, & is very talented in flying changes, passage & extensions. DiMaggio helped me earn both my USDF Bronze and Silver Medals, & we competed together at the prestigious North American Junior and Young Rider Championships.
DiMaggio is now my teaching assistant for riders moving into the higher levels, and has helped one of my students earn a Bronze Medal in 2015.
