Portrait of CZANTIAGO

We are so happy that you are back home safe and sound after your big adventure at the North American Stallion Testing! We really enjoyed watching you in the finals, free jumping, and being ridden and scored on rideability and gaits. Even though we were disappointed that the ice and snow canceled the cross country portion of the testing, we heard from several trainers that you “led the field” on the cross country gallop during the 70 days of training and received very high scores for that portion. SO a great big congratulations on passing this test with a good score overall, and with best marks on Character, Constitution, and Cross Country Gallop. This is a big accomplishment and something to be very proud of, I know you studied and worked very hard while you were there. Now you can have a little break before we start training and preparing for the Scottsdale Arabian show. You will be competing in Dressage, In-Hand, Under Saddle, and several Hunter divisions. I’ve talked to a few of your friends (Victoria and Mark Cushman, Joy Piccone, Jim Porcher, Colleen and Vern Lochausen) and they plan to come cheer you on at the Scottsdale show so I know we’ll enjoy seeing them and will have a lot of fun.

I’ll be over to see you at Michelle Mahoney's next week so we can ride and jump and have fun.

Big Hugs,
