others on other boards have noted he was sold. Gossip flies fast, particularly when you can assume many $$$$$$ involved. Missed seeing his grey self at Harrisburg - always interested to watch outcome when John French no longer the ride, because to me, he is a genius with just about every horse he touches.

3Dogs, there are plenty of other very talented pros out there who can make that horse go brilliantly. The horse was successful with its kid in the juniors too, so obviously he's not too much of an idiosyncratic ride.

I'm not trying to discount John in any sense, but rather defend the next pro who has inherited Rumba. (Lucky.)

From what I understand, although it may just be gossip and who knows how true ;), the horse was re-purchased by the previous owner.

Whomever gets the ride is a very lucky pro. John did an awesome job on him but I'm not totally sure I agree about the easy ride, I pulled up the junior record and it is just OK, for me, I would not consider it to be a particularly outstanding record for a horse of this quality, especially considering that the horse and John were undefeated in the 2nd years. Perhaps, the kid gets nervous or whatever but the horse was truly great for JF.

I agree with that, but I still believe that the horse can be truly great another pro. As great, time will tell, but I don't think it's fair at this point to imply that another pro can't/won't ride the horse as well.

Perhaps, the kid gets nervous or whatever but the horse was truly great for JF.

Think it was a bit better than "just okay". I expected to see a giant hole of DNPs, or wins in classes of 6, but that's not the case. Very few horses go out and win every class, every time, though it certainly helps to have JF on their back. He came home with blues from the majority of shows, and spent quite a bit of time showing in just the Green divisions. "Kid" really didn't have that many shows in the juniors, took a break, and then reappeared in the AOs. Unfortunate as it is for sale horses, many of those lackluster ribbons are the fault of their pilots. Seen many nice horses reign in their divisions for a year, get sold, then have a hard time placing the next year. Kid/ammie hasn't figured them out yet, loves to eat the groundline. Typically if they stick with it long enough the horse starts winning again . . . if they don't you're suddenly looking at a great horse with a crappy recent record to try and sell.

That last bit was more of a digression, never saw Rumba before JF made him famous so I have no idea how he went. But considering he began showing in 2007 it's possible he grew up and matured as a show horse just in time for John to hop in and plug in his "magic" key.

Will note, he did seem to bomb at Cap Challenge in '08, anybody see that and think to remember it at the time??

ah, see that now. The preceding record entry on USEF is a full slate of DNP at Cap Challenge Eq Week . . . interesting way they entered that.

So again, he seems to have had a fair amount of success before John got him. Best of luck to new owners, I'm sure Erin is thrilled to have him back.

Spielberg spends summers in the Hamptons, on Long Island, she probably has a "summer trainer" - I'm pretty sure I have seen her name mentioned on the LI circuit too.

No matter how much nicer the weather may be in CA, the Hamptons is "the" place to be for celebrities to have a summer home. Every celebrity has a home in the Hamptons now it seems and the Speilbergs are no exception.

Honestly, I've thought for years that the only way to really enjoy the whole Hamptons thing would be to have a helicopter so you could skip the LIE part of the experience. That traffic is a nightmare! Not to mention the endless line of cars on Route 27 once you get out there- way too stressful.

I will say it's a beautiful area, and I've had fun out there- once the summer "season" was over!

The CEO of a company I used to work for bought his own helicopter just to avoid the LIE traffic to his summer home in Quogue. He wasn't the only one, either. And I stopped vacationing in Montauk about 20 years ago, its just too crowded in the summer. But you are right about going there after the season is over and the crowds are gone, very beautiful and some fabulous barns out there too. :yes:

Rumba is a Danish Warmblood gelding.
Bloodlines: Carano x Limebrand x Irak

Carano competed as a showjumper. A Holsteiner by birth, he was the Danish Stallion of the year in 2004, but passed away this year at the age of 18. He's had a number of successful offspring in both jumping and dressage.

Limebrand competed in dressage.

Again, Destry Spielberg is 12 years old. She has been showing ponies. She has been doing well at it -- including ribbons at Harrisburg. I'm not sure why that has your knickers in such a twist, but I, for one, consider her a very lucky girl to have parents who support her this strongly (i.e. with a lot of money) in pursuit of her passion.

This thread is just one more reason I would hate to be even remotely famous, at anything, because it makes people feel they have the right to talk about, analyze, criticize, and condemn absolutely everything you do. There are tons of kids who did and did not get ribbons at Harrisburg. There are tons of horses that got bought and sold.

While I consider the new owner of this lovely horse to be extremely fortunate, I do not envy the intense spotlight that must exist every time they walk in the ring. Anonymity is blissful.

Has anyone ever lucked into a really nice, talented horse who you personally couldn't ride well but other people could? I have. It was demoralizing and the self induced pressure was terrible. Just because a horse costs a ton of money and others do well with it doesn't mean that the next owner will. I wish Destry the best and hope to see her and Rumba out and about and having a good time.

It's likely that she just thinks she's ready for a horse, this one was a great match, so let's move forward and buy him. I wouldn't be surprised if a kid like that doesn't feel any pressure at all.

Somehow I don't think they'll just be turning her loose on him in the show ring, at least not right at first! I expect he'll get pro rides for another year or so.

What a marvelous opportunity! I don't suppose she would let me "borrow" him now and then??????? :)

The horse is amazing he is going to be purchased by someone with money, I'm not sure why this is an issue? I'm new but I would hope with so much out there that this isn't the main sample of what people talk about on here. Sure she is a famous "kid" in regards to her family name, and that means people will be interested, but if they are not asking for your money to buy the horse then it is their business not any of ours, right? I have had my share of crazy people to deal with at shows who simply have to invent the bad in people and can't accept other people's success, being on the recieving end of hateful gossip out of jelaousy it made me take a closer look at how I might perceive things and even treat people without realizing it. It's the horse world, spoiled, mean, nasty,jealous are going to go hand in hand with kind, compassionate, friendly, nice, caring it is a mixed bad, I look for the good and enjoy my horses and am grateful for our success.:)
