GAIGS Region 1 Championships, NC

November 4, 2012

Home after a really good weekend at the Region 1 Champs. CCS TInuvel (Sugar) and Halifax went. and they did Knabbies proud.
Sugar was 5th place in the Second level open division, an incredibly tough and competitive open division against some of the best warmbloods on the East Coast. And she was so good. She got 65.714% which put her only 2 percentage points from Harmony’s Wambuto, a horse who won his 100 day test in Holland! This is an amazing performance for our little 5 yr old, she held her own against the best! Kudos to April Shultz who has trained her from the get go and who rode her so well.

Not to be out done. Halifax Middlesom did 3rd 3 for the first time. He di this test twice. On the Friday he scored 68.974% winning his class. On the Saturday he did the test again, this time he scored a very impressive 77.434% way to go April and Halifax.

A great show and great way to end the season.

The Knabstruppers went to Dressage at Devon Breed show

October 3, 2012

Thank you to all the Knabstrupper owners, breeders and enthusiasts who came out to support the first Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Individual Breed Class (IBC) for Knabstruppers at the very competitive Dressage at Devon (DAD). The class was sponsored by Altamont Sport Horses and was open to both RPSI and KNN registered Knabstruppers. With 7 horses entered this was an excellent turnout for a first time IBC class especially considering the rarity of this special breed.

CCS Shadowfax in the IBC class at DAD

All the Knabstruppers present were of good sport type, well mannered and excellent ambassadors for the breed. Indeed, many DAD attendees had never heard of, or seen, a Knabstrupper until today.

We were happy to have a few extra Knabstrupper enthusiasts in attendance to support the effort and cheer them on – Carla McKnight (owner of Fanfare de Bec by Ambrosius af Asgard “Atlantis”), Louise Jordan Beam, owner of Captain also by Atlantis and Martha Mitchell the owner of two 2012 Knabstrupper fillies Astrid af Midgard and Freyja af Midgard (both by Atlantis).

CCS Boromir in the IBC class at DAD

The Knabstrupper riding horses, CCS Tinuvel and CCS Boromir, ridden by April Schultz, represented the breed well in the open under saddle classes for young horses.

CCS Boromir was 8th place in a big class of 3 yr old colts/geldings and an a very impressive 4th place in the 3 yr old Materiale class.

CCS Tinuvel in the 5 yr olds Materiale class at DAD

CCS Tinuvel was 4th in a big class of Broodmares under saddle and was 6th in a HUGE class of 4/5 yr old mares Materiale. There were some very impressive mares in this class including the eventual Show Chmapion, so she really did hold her own in open competition against the best or the best.

Thank you to all the owners, handlers and volunteers who presented these horses and worked hard behind the scenes to make the IBC class a success. We’re already looking forward to the 2013 DAD Knabstrupper IBC and hope to see more young Knabstruppers competing in the open under saddle classes next year. Now is the time to set your goals and start working towards getting your Knabstrupper ready for the ring for 2013. Have fun!
