Talented young dressage horse for sale!!

I recently updated my website with an impressive and talented dressage horse for sale. He is a 2006 Dutch warmblood gelding by Farrington out of a Welt Hit II/Jazz mare. He's over 17 hands, and with his huge scopy gaits and fantastic uphill canter, definitely a horse that will make the judges take notice!

Visit my website for more information and a video of this talented horse!

Region 6 Youth Camp 2011!!

Mark your calendars for the 2011 Region 6 Youth Camp, to be held July 5th-8th (Tues-Fri) at DevonWood Equestrian Centre in Sherwood, Oregon. Last year almost 50 kids from all over our Region traveled to attend the first ever Youth Camp. Six local dressage professionals, all former participants at the NAJYRC, donated lessons and travel time to be a part of this unique opportunity. We also had lectures on various horse and dressage-related topics, including a demonstration on the FEI jog and a round-table discussion with all the instructors on their Jr/YR experiences. All proceeds from the camp went directly into the Region 6 Advanced Young Rider fund, which helps offset expenses for our Jr/YR team to travel to NAJYRC.
Last year's camp was an unbelievable experience, and everyone is excited for next year!! Stay tuned for more details!
