Lucid Opposition Breaks Records

Lucid Opposition's marks in her recent Dressage Test. She was ridden by Jennifer McFall in a CWD saddle.

WOW! That's about all we could say after getting Lucy's Dressage Test back at the Twin Rivers Combined Test. Though you can't see it in the picture above, the total penalty score for her test was a "9"!

Of course, she is bred to be a champion like so many other of her siblings by Fleetwater Opposition. But, with a year and a half off to be bred, and only a handful of weeks back under saddle, she exceeded all expectations by a mile! After earning this phenomenal score, she went on to jump clean and win her first show back.

A New Star For Dragonfire at the Morgan World Championships

Dragonfire Timeless and Jennifer McFall competing in Oklahoma City

We couldn't be more proud of our own Dragonfire Timeless and his performances at the 2010 Morgan Grand National and World Championships. Capturing both the Four Year Old Hunter Pleasure Reserve World Championship and the reserve in the National qualifier, Timmy displayed his powerful movement in the most graceful package.

By the outstanding producing sire, Minion Millennium, and out of the late, great Raintree Ala Bella, Timmy is easily one of the most fun horses I have ever shown. He has a forward and floating trot that he can extend easily without losing balance or tempo. His canter is so light and slow, that I often find myself daydreaming without a care in the world. And let's not forget his flat footed and relaxed walk! All of this, AND he is arguably one of the prettiest Hunters out there. It was an absolute joy for me to compete and win with Timmy throughout the 2010 show season.

Timeless is surely destined to follow in the footsteps of our many Dragonfire champions before him, and be a favorite in Oklahoma City for many, many years to come!
