Regaining the Spark

0
Silver Wend (aka Neala) is a 2008 Irish Draught Sport Horse. I got her as my first horse seven years ago. She couldn’t have been a more perfect first horse for 11 year-old me. She loves to be around people, she's goofy and playful, and she is always willing to try everything I ask of her. Overall, she just has a heart of gold.

A Pink Ribbon For Obi

0
I was just getting back into the groove with my lovely Global Jedi (fondly known as Obi-Wan) following surgery and rehab to repair a fractured splint bone, when I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. Obi is more than just my dream horse—he’s a vessel for all of my equestrian hopes, dreams, and goals. He’s the horse I plan to finish earning my USDF Bronze Medal with, the horse I plan to run my first 2* event with, and the horse with whom the sky is the limit.

Ageless Eye Candy

0
Eye Candy (Escudo II x Goldstern by Grenadier), a 1999 Hanoverian bred by Hans Hosp of Ottendorf Germany, began his classical dressage training in Vechta, Germany, with Catherine Haddad Staller in early 2003.  Eye Candy was purchased by Robin Mattson in October of that year.  Eye Candy remained in Germany in training with Staller until the fall of 2005, when Robin  imported him to the United States.  Over the next 17 years, Robin and Eye Candy progressed through the levels to Intermediate I, earning their USDF Bronze and Silver Medals.
