My horse Lionhart (barn name Liam), a Holsteiner gelding, won the title of Reserve Championship Preliminary Horse at the AEC's last year (2013). I've owned him since he was three years old. (he is now 9). He also won 2nd place in the Preliminary Horse Divsion at Rebecca Farms last year (2013). My hopes were to move him up to the Intermediate Level this year but unfortunately he suffered a hind suspensory ligament injury and is out for the season.
I am currently showing a horse new to eventing. He is a 7 yr. old Dutch WB gelding and his name is P.F. Goodtimes (barn name Adonis). He made his debut in eventing this year at the Novice Level and is doing well. I am planning on moving him up to Training Level in August. He will be eventing at Rebecca Farms this month at the novice level.
My barn Platinum Farms, LLC, located in Franktown, Colorado, is thriving. We currently board 40 horses and I teach about 50 lessons per week. About 70% of my students are eventers. We have a great Event Team, including all levels from Beginner Novice up to Intermediate. My youngest student is 8 yrs. old, my oldest student is 65 yrs old.
Last year we attended most of the Area IX events as well as ventured out to Aiken, SC, during the winter and evented at Pine Top, Poplar and Full Gallop HT's. We also evented at Rebecca Farms and AEC's. We plan on doing the same this year.
