I am SSOO EXCITED about riding in the Devoucoux Dressage Saddle!! Sheryl and I BOTH felt the difference in how our horses worked in these saddles – looser, more freely forward, easy lateral work… Looking forward to a GREAT future with Devoucoux!! #devoucoux#GOV
We are SSOO pleased with our new 3 year old mare Vin Noir (Van Vivaldi – Don Gregory), formerly known as Victoria’s Secret, that Marta Kauffman and I purchased at the Oldenburger Elite Auktion in September, 2017.
Here she is under rider Phillip Severit, at Hof Westendarp -
At the recent German Oldenburger Fall Elite Auktion, Marta Kauffman and Jaye Cherry purchased ‘Victoria’s Secret’ – a FABULOUS 3 year old Main Premium (formerly known as States Premium) AND Brilliant Ring mare by Van Vivaldi, out of a Don Gregory Brilliant Ring mare.
She will remain with Johannes Westendarp in Wallenhorst, Germany, for some time to see whether she will compete at the Oldenburger Landeschampionat in June 2018, and the Bundeschampionat in September 2018.
We are SSSOOO EXCITED with this new opportunity!!!! Enjoy the Auktion video of ‘Victoria’s Secret’…
At the GOV Mare Performance Test held at Keenridge Farm in Moorpark, Ca., Hilda Gurney’s Sondheim OLD filly Springtime achieved Premium Mare status! Owned and bred by Hilda, this is Sondheim’s first U. S. foal, and was named a Premium Foal and Foal of Distinction as a baby.
We look forward to many successes in the show ring for Hilda and ‘Spring’!
Recently, at IEL in Los Angeles, Rose Kauffman Skloff roder her Weser – Ems pony mare Roy’s Pippilotta in Second Level Test 3, and WON!! I found ‘Pippi’ at the Oldenburger Elite Auktion, and brought her home as a Hunter / Jumper pony for Rose… they were very successful for several years before Rose decided to change disciplines with Pippi to learn Dressage.
Rose’s winning score was 68% – the second place score was 52% !!! We are looking forward to more fun in the future…
These photos are from a First Level test from last year – unfortunately there was no photographer at this show.
