  • Courtney King Dye's Olympic Mount, Mythilus Passses Away

    Written by bossmare

    Early this morning, we lost our dear Mythilus. He began to colic yesterday afternoon, and he was taken to Fairfield Equine. Although he had some hopeful lulls of comfort, overall his pain became worse and worse. At about 10:30 pm it was clear that surgery was inevitable. Dr. Rick Mitchell and his staff did everything they could, but they found an inoperable abnormality in Myth’s colon and were left with no choice but to euthanize him. I feel blessed to have had Myth in my life. We went through many struggles and heartbreaks as well as many pinnacles and joyous times. I can’t believe I won’t be greeted by his incredibly enthusiastic, curious, and happy face each time I pass his stall. He was a treasure.

  • Location Needed in Pennsylvania for USEF/Lendon Gray Youth Dressage Clinics In November

    Written by Christy

    Lendon Gray is asking for assistance in setting up two USEF youth dressage clinics, to be held in Pennsylvania on  November 14 & 15 and November 21 & 22.

    Lendon is looking for a facility(s) which has space available for either or both of those weekends and can accommodate training indoor’s for 10 dressage riders.  They will be bringing their own horses so stabling is needed.  Both weekends do not have to be at the same location.  They would like to do two days both weekends but can settle for less if accommodations don't work out.

    If you know of a trainer, stable, college or community that may be suitable please contact Jeff Kurtz, Lendon's web guy and DC, Mountain Laurel Pony Club tomorrow so he can get on the phone and  see what he can arrange.

  • Dressage at Devon 2009 - An Adult Amateur’s Perspective

    Written by bossmare

    Dressage at Devon - The horse show of horse shows in America that many revere as the most prestigious America has to offer. For adult amateurs, it is something we dream of going to watch one day, but few of us dare to dream to actually compete at Devon. This year, this adult amateur got the wild hair to go to Devon with her 8 year old Oldenburg mare, Kontessa, and compete at Prix St. George. What might set us apart from others in our situation was the following: Kontessa is my first dressage horse whom I bought over the internet as a 4 year old from North Carolina with 3 weeks of backing. How I ended up at Devon, was a dream I never imagined would come true, but it did!

  • Emma Hindle Tops the Field in Berlin CDN

    Written by Astrid

    German based Brit Emma Hindle and her up and coming Grand Prix horse Fürstenreich won the Grand Prix Kur to Music at the Berlin CDN Sept 30-Oct 4 on a smashing score of 72.61% to nudge out runners up Christoph Koschel and Fantomas on 72.15%. “I was very pleased with the Kur,” said Hindle. “In the GP I didn’t ride well at all but he kept going - something that really impresses me; his ability to go ahead when I just sit there. But in the Kur we were really together and he was simply sensational.” Hindle is optimistic about the future of not only 11 year old Fürstenreich but of her other rising stars including 12 year old Diamond Hit and 10 year old Chequille, all enjoying success recently in Hindle’s able hands. “I’m looking to take them international around March,” said Hindle. “I’m going to continue in some smaller national shows until then to help them gain confidence and gain more confidence myself as a rider.”

  • Competitors Make Their Own Sunshine at the Lamplight Dressage Championships

    Written by bossmare

    Lamplight Equestrian Center finished out a busy year as hosts to the GAIG/USDF Dressage Regional Championships, and their own Lamplight Championships this weekend in style and in spite of the inclement weather. It did not dampen spirits, nor hold back competition which ran smoothly in seven arenas all weekend. Horses, tack, and riders weren’t spared the mud, but the solid foundation in the footing provided a secure foundation for over 500 horses which hung in there and did there best. But it was the stall decorating contest, with judging held Saturday evening during a huge competitors’ party and pig roast which was the hotly contested competition.
