Skywalker HW is 2015 GAIG Region 6 USDF Intermediare 1 OPEN Champion! …honestly, we can’t believe either, that he’s already 9 years old, he was just a 6 month old baby at our farm!
Time truly flies. Catherine Reid posted: So super proud of Shortaroo (aka SkyWalker HW). I can't believe he is 9yo already!! Maybe there *will* be a GP horse in there :-)

Whidbey Equestrian Center Intermediare-1 Open CHAMPION!!! Huge congratulations!!!!
Skywalker HW (bred by www.HWfarm.com) and his owner Catherine Reid - what a match. Another milestone, they accomplished to get a personal best for Catherine, at I-1 with a 72.7%.
She writes the following: Still room to improve- we broke in one medium trot (I pushed for too much) and a mistake in the 3's (he added a change) But, I'm happy to say we got 8s for both canter pirouettes- a movement Shorts is still not 100% confident in The collectives give me hope for better still to come! Catherine is — feeling proud.

Catherine Reid posted the following about her ride with SkyWalker HW, more congratulations are in order: 69.6% and 1st in the I1 today... So close to hitting a 70% at FEI
Costly mistakes in the 2s (doing 1s DOESN'T get you bonus points?!? ?) and one pirouette Still, proud of my little black donkey ??

Catherine Reid posted the following, so happy her (she trained him all his life!) and “our” homebred SkyWalker HW, amazing result, these guys rock! Better in the I-1 this show. Some bobbles still but 68.8% and 1st place!
Not bad for his second show at this level!

Pretty pleased with Shortaroo's first try at I-1.. Some issues on the centerline (hard for him to believe that we DO NOT always halt on the centerline) And a few 1's instead on 2's Still, super feedback from Lilo Fore and a respectable 64.4% and 2nd place!
Catherine Reid added 3 new photos. June 20th
Less mistakes (major OOPS in the 3's) today but RIDER needs to stay focused on the test 64.7% and 3rd in the open I-1 We had a pre-ride nap/conference, too

Catherine Reid deserves all the credit for trusting us with her purchase and to train her own FEI horse, she broke this child and works with him since many years and now can call herself 8th in the nation and placed 5th in her PSG class, what a huge accomplishment.
Skywalker HW (bred by www.HWfarm.com and full brother to Selten HW) and his mommy make us really proud, well deserved, so happy for you, huge congratulations again and again and also, a huge thank you, for staying in touch and keeping us informed all these years.

Young Horse Championships 2012: Look, what Skywalker HW and his mommy Catherine got! Love it!!!
phenomenal foal. Welcome a black colt with a nice star into the world, sire is
thought we saw them all, but this is the third full brother and oh my gosh, let
me tell you, he seems to be born to walk on clouds, that’s why we called him
Skywalker HW. He barely ever touches the ground, is healthy, strong and has
airtime to spare. This colt loves to come up to “help” and cuddle, can’t
wait to see how he will grow up and fill out. Here are the very first pic's:
