Congratulations to owner / breeder Carrie Treadway – her Sondheim OLD son Sovereignty (Sondheim OLD – Quattro), ridden by the great Kristin Hardin, WON the 4 Yr Old Jumper Championships at the Sacramento International Horse Show 2018!!!
We look forward to many more successes with this pair!
Former Oldenburger Elite Auktion gelding Au Revoir (Ampere – Liberty M) just placed 3rd in the Developing Prix St. Georges class at the United States Festival of Champions!!!
I was lucky enough to do the bidding for owner Sandi Chohany, to purchase this talented young horse, and with Heather McCarthy showing him, Au Revoir has proven to be an exceptionally gifted fella!
This is Au Revoir’s first year showing this level, so it is even MORE impressive that Heather was able to qualify him so quickly, much less produce such a great result!!
Congratulations to Sandi AND Heather for producing another wonderful FEI horse!
Congratulations to breeder Hilda Gurney, owner Adrienne Bessey, and stallion owner Marta Kauffman, on the results from the GOV Mare Inspection today at Keenridge Farm in California…
Stunning (Sondheim OLD – Winterprinz), 3 yr old mare, was named Premium Mare, and Thomas Rhinow stated that she is the BEST MARE HE HAS SEEN IN THE United States!!!
Also stated was that she is ‘made for the BIG ring – I mean the OLYMPICS!!!’
Vin Noir (Van Vivaldi – Don Gregory), Oldenburger Elite Auktion mare, has finally arrived in the U. S. !!
Purchased at the 2017 Oldenburger Elite Auktion in Germany by Marta Kauffman and Jaye Cherry, ‘Vinnie’ stayed at Hof Westendarp with Johannes und Ines Westendarp, for Philipp Severit to ride and show for a bit.
After quarantine, Vinnie will come home to my barn in Burbank – I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!
In early April, I went to Germany for the Oldenburger Elite Auktion… but REALLY I went to ride our wonderful 4 year old Oldenburger Elite Auktion mare Vin Noir (Van Vivaldi – Don Gregory).
Johannes Westendarp and his lovely rider Philipp Severit are doing SUCH a great job with Vin that my rides were simply fabulous – I cannot thank them and Hof Westendarp enough!!!
Recently, Hof Westendarp’s rider Philipp Severit showed our 4 year old mare Vin Noir (Van Vivaldi - Don Gregory) for her first time, with great success!!
As it was SNOWING outside, all 15 – 20 horses had to warm up together in the small, 15m x 40m arena!!! Vin showed confidence and maturity beyond her young age…
Many thanks to Hof Westendarp and Philip Severit for their wonderful care and training!!
