NEDA Fall Festival & Dressage at Devon Success!

NEDA Fall Festival & Dressage at Devon Success!

Maplewood Warmbloods once again had a wonderful tour of the final 2 shows of the season. Generally speaking we choose 4 horses in August to campaign for the Fall. This year we chose MW Dallas (Pictured Left), MW Derringer (Pictured Right), MW Fantazia, and MW Bodacious.  This was the most fun group we have ever taken to the shows. A pleasure to deal with and good attitudes during the long 2 weeks of shows.

MW Dallas closed out her breed show career with NEDA by being the Overall Grand Champion for the 3rd year in a row. She was also the East Coast Mare Champion with a whopping 86.9%. She went on to Devon to be second in the Yeld Mare Class and winning her 5yo Materiale Class and winning the overall Materiale Grand Championship Award. She also competed in the FEI 5yo Test where she finished 3rd in a strong field. She was ridden by the talented Ulla Parker.

MW Derringer is our promising 2yo GOV Colt. He won his 2yo class at NEDA with an 85.5%, was the Colt Champion, YH Reserve Champion, and overall Reserve Champion to MW Dallas. He went on to also win the East Coast Finals Colt Championship. Such a promising horse for the future.

MW Fantazia showed amazingly. I find at the yearling stage they change so much from show to show and also because they lack development of even the 2yos the judges either love or hate them. At NEDA Fantazia won her class with an 84.2% receiving a 9 for her trot. She went on to Devon and actually showed better in my opinion but the judge didnt see that and gave her a 74% for a 4th place. This will be a special horse for us in the future and I look forward to showing her as a more mature 2yo.

MW Bodacious is another stallion prospect for MW. He is a yearling colt by Borsalino who had the opposite show experience as MW Fantazia. He was not the judge favorite at NEDA even though he did get a 8.5 for his walk there. At Devon he was a star receiving 9 for walk and 8.5 for trot for an 82% overall and a second place in his yearling class. He went on to be the Reserve Champion Colt against colts & geldings up to 3yo. He was a star and is going to be quite something as a 2yo.

Looking forward to 2018!!!
