Well, a little more then a year ago, we purchased Darktanion. He is an 11 year old Purebred Friesian Stallion that had only ever been trained for trail riding and Mideval expos (Sword Fighting etc). When We got him, We started him on his Dressage career. He had about 3-4 months of training and then went to his first show last spring. So This was his first year training and his very first year showing. End Result? He took Open Division year end High Point Champion for 2008 with Tri-state Dressage Society!!!!! WOOHOOO!!!! We're VERY excited!! LOL And this is only the begining!!!
