Dragonfire Produces Top Performers At Rebecca Farm YEH

Five days of exciting competition at The Event at Rebecca Farm (Kalispell, Mont.) kicked off on Wednesday with the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) test for four-year-olds and five-year-olds. The series is best described as an eventing talent search. The goal is to identify young horses that possess the talent and disposition that, with proper training, can excel in the uppermost levels of eventing. The ultimate aim of the YEH is to identify future four-star horses that will represent the United States in International competitions to come. Dragonfire Farm's goal of breeding top class event prospects is well under way, with Classic Twain DF and Axiom DF already making big impressions in these futurities.

Ten lovely four-year-olds gave the judges a great deal to look at. The horse at the top of the leader board at the end of the day was Axiom DF, ridden by Earl McFall. This stunning 16.3 hand Holsteiner gelding by Ariadus and out of a Trakehner mare, Lucid Opposition, has tons of presence, a ground covering stride, and a powerful jump, all topped off with a great temperament.

Twenty three horses were presented in the five-year-old YEH division. In second place was Jennifer McFall and Classic Twain DF, who won the four-year-old YEH West Coast Championship last year, and is now continuing his success in the YEH program as a five-year-old. Classic Twain DF, a full Thoroughbred by The Twain and out of Sapphire Magic, earned a qualifying score for this years' Championship at Galway Downs in Temecula, CA.
