Horse Show update: Iris competed with both Stiletto and Femi at the Jacksonville Dressage Show in April 2011. Stiletto won both his Intermediaire 1 classes, and became FEI champion.
Femi was competing in her second show and placed second in her first time showing first level, as well as winning both her training level classes with scores of 73%.
The show was well organized and as always, huge thanks to Colette and Meghan for providing such great help!
We unfortunately missed the entries for the Canterbury Freestyle Championships, where Stiletto won both his freestyles last year, and more importantly had so much fun. But we are working on an Intermediaire 1 Freestyle for him to debut in July, perhaps at Canterbury...
This picture speaks a thousand words: "I love his focused and peaceful expression" Iris Eppinger This photo was taken at my horse, Maserati's, first recognized horse show. He rose above and beyond any expectations I could have had, and this is primarily due to our training with Iris.
Not only is she an amazing dressage trainer, but she helped match Masi and I together when he was just turning 4 years old. She has an ability to read the horse and rider so beautifully to not only put horse and rider together, but help them succeed in their training.
She is exceptionally well rounded in her training as well as her holistic approach to horses. I cannot thank her enough for finding me the horse of my dreams!
