Sensational news from El
Capitano HW, now called Ely (Elysian), huge congratulations to Tracey Lert
and her new horse, scores as high as 81.9%!
Hi Irene, Didn't know if you saw the results of our finals and wanted to let
you know how Ely did. Ely won the warmup test with a 69%. Then he was a bit
naughty in the USDF test and got a 70% and was fifth. We had a good forward
warmup for our first half of our CDS final and got 69.8 and were standing third.
In the last test he was so amazing it was such a fun ride. One of the judges
stopped me on the way out and asked if he was my horse. I told her he was and
she told me that in all the years and all of the horses she has judged me on,
she had never seen me ride so well and was impressed. I guess she was, as I got
an 81.9% from her. The other judge gave us a 71 so we were Reserve Champion by a
total of 1.5 points or .1%. I ended with a 73.2 and the first place horse was
73.3. I couldn't be more happy with him. Overall, a very good show.
I may not show Ely a lot next year. I am looking to really improve his
looseness and gaits and get him moved to the FEI level. I will do some showing,
I am sure, but not wear him out showing. Instead focus on the move into the PSG
and Int 1 with the idea of having him ready for 2015 if the still have Pan Am at
that level. I will keep you posted. Tracey Lert
And here is the next title and ribbon for Skywalker
HW (bred by Irene Hoeflich-Wiederhold / www.HWfarm.com) and Catherine Reid.
Huge congratulations, Skywalker HW is only 7 yo and was the youngest competitor
in the class. Just amazing, so very proud. Catherine, well done - AGAIN!!!
GAIG/USDF Fourth Level Reserve Champion! Feeling great.
Huge congratulations to Skywalker
HW and Catherine Reid, his owner and rider. Well done you two, especially
considering that Catherine trained him all by herself, here is another one who
makes all my breeders dreams come true. So amazing. Thank you Catherine!

horse's training. "I'm learning a lot," she said. Allen Swafford and FiderStep
HW also participated in the Young Horse 5-Year-Old Qualifier and came away
with third place. He said he received good feedback from the judges on the

conservative and just do a nice test and then next time we can go for
