Zandman Trains in Virginia

Zandman (Quattro B/Cavalier/Le Mexico) is currently in training with Martha in Charlottesville Virginia. The four year old gelding, like his sire Quattro B, shows great ability as both a jumper and a dressage horse. At this stage of training we are working on his fitness and introducing him to a variety of experiences including flat work, some small jumps and some cross country work

Wiseman wins the IBOP and DG Bar cup classes at Iron Spring Farm.

Wiseman, a five year old Lord Sinclair/Lancet/Rubenstine gelding won the IBOP and the DG Bar cup classes at the KWPN keuring at Iron Spring Farms. These two classes are designed to test the suitability of young horses for dressage. Martha rode Wiseman to scores of 77 and 77.5 in these classes. Wiseman recieved 8 for walk, 7.5 for trot and 8 for canter. The classes were very competitive with horses such as Iron Spring’s Watch Me and Sporting Chance Farm’s Wildcard in the classes. A win at the legendary Iron Spring Farm’s beautiful setting was particularly satisfying.
These classes are offered at all ten KWPN keurings and the scores are ranked for all North American keurings . We will see how these scores rank at the end of September.
