Got this e-mail from Sunny's (Sandjour's) owner, love my job! Here is also more info on the clinic. Robert Dover will be the head trainer. Olympians Jan Ebeling and Debbie MacDonald as well as international riders Kathleen Raine and Shelly Francis, and international judges Linda Zang and Janet Foy will also be teaching.

Irene goes beyond the call of duty again and again. Not only did she send me a fabulous horse but most recently, after six and a half years, she recommended my horse to Adriennne Lyle for her young rider Jamie Pestana to ride in the Robert Dover Young Rider Clinic in Wellington January 2-6. This prestigious clinic is full headliners as instructors. I will be so proud to stand on the rail with Irene watching my boy being ridden by such a prestigious young rider. Thank you Irene. Holly

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!

From Phelps Media Group: High Prairie Dressage Markel/USEF Young Horse Qualifier Classes Help Identify Future Talent

HWfarm horses rock the qualifiers, huge congratulations to their owners and riders:

Quotes: Ann Buchanan rode SkyHit HW to win the Markel/USEF 4-Year-Old Qualifier. "He was really good," she said. "There's a lot going on in there and he really kept it together." She said the judges liked his walk and thought he was very submissive, especially with all the activity at the show. She added that she specifically purchased the horse in order to participate in the Young Horse Qualifier and appreciated the feedback from the judges to help her continue her 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 horse. "He's super," he said. "It's his first test and his first horse show and we weren't as expressive as we can be. We were trying to be conservative and just do a nice test and then next time we can go for expression."
