Our Westfalen cow pony Rubienne ( Rubinus/Don Primaire) . Most versatile horse anyone could wish for! Ready to show Third Level and then go check the cows with my 9 year old son! – Tina S.
My first own horse. Prisma *1993 by Pluspunkt out of Arianer. Incredible combination between kind and stubborn. You could do everything with her, never spooked. We tied sleds to her, rode her bareback in only a neck ring. And she also carried me to my first ribbons in jumping classes. – Steffi M.
So excited for the future of my 2020 Westfalen who is USA bred 🇺🇸 this was last year at his first show where he won the colt class of his age group. He is by Ron Rubin out of a Weltmeyer mare. He is so sweet and has such a good mind 💕 – Lisa H.
