MW Donnahall is a special mare by Florencio (Florestan x Weltmeyer) and out of Dein Liebling (Donnerhall x Pik Bube I). This has been a very special partnership between Donnahall and MWW’s head trainer Jen Vanover who is now a USDF Bronze medalist and is supported by Trilogy Performance Saddlery and Purina. She is not the best mover in the barn, but “she just gets it” according to Jen. In 2011 when Jen trained with Guenter Seidel he said he wished he had 10 Donnahall’s in his barn – Jen wishes the same.
Due to her physical immaturity, Jen chose not to break Donna until she was 3.5yrs of age. Since then the pair has averaged a 68% in the ring and attended the Region 8 Championships every year including the USDF 4yo test where she scored a 7.87 in front of Bo Jena. In 2011, the pair placed 5th in the Region 8 Championships in trainng level. In 2012, Jen and Donnahall jumped an impressive 3 levels averaging a 67% at second level and taking the leap to 3-1 so Jen could acheive her bronze which they did in 2 classes with a 65%. The pair looks forward to perfoming 2-3 at the 2012 Regional Championships in hopes of placing high enough to attend the first ever National Championships.
