For 6 weeks in Jan. & Feb. 2010 I was privileged enough to experience the winter scene training and showing in
Wellington, FL. with Herf.
Through nothing short of a miracle, in the form of a free stall, I was able to thoroughly immerse myself in some of
this country's best Dressage and meet some awesome people in the process.
Me deepest thanks go to Stacey, Kenny and Dakota for hosting Herf and I at their farm and training facility.
To my trainers, Bent Jensen and Carol Lavell,
thank you for your expertise, time and patience!

My Thoroughbred, Goliath, and I have a history.......
'G' and I trace back to 1996.  I have owned him twice and spent the four years in between looking for him.  I
have never had a bond with another animal like I have with Goliath. Competition with him is a matter of
personal satisfaction for me.  I am so proud he has been able to come up through the levels after losing four years
and learning difficult work later in life.  In 2004 'G' distinguished himself as the top TB in the country at 4th
level and Reserve at Prix  St. George!  In 2005 he was the top thoroughbred
in the country at Prix St. George!

Goliath's Achievements:
North American TB Society 4th Level Champion
North American TB Society PSG - Reserve Champion
TB Horses for Sport - Reserve Champion at 4th level
TB Horse for Sport - Champion at PSG
Joe Lane Challenge Trophy - 70% 4th level
Jennifer Wesson Memorial Trophy - 67% PSG
USDF Silver Medal
WNYDA Darla Award (highest score at F.E.I.)
NATBS PSG National Champion
