    Default Eventing Supersire A Fine Romance offspring pics this week on EN and Horse Junkies

    Yeah I am proud of Fred and I say supersire!

    With all the talk of breeding eventers for UL riders lately...take a look at these beauties ridden by the Canadian Team riders. They are like clones of their gorgeous talented fancy daddy, and their pictures are plastered all over the internet this week for getting double clears and being awesome!

    Thank you Holly!

    There were some terrific pictures and some nice comments on EN and HorseJunkies about both A First Romance and A Little Romance.
    I am not sure how to link to them or copy them here though

    The Selena O Hanlon camp reported that Red Hills cross country was carnage for many. But A First Romance put in one the only 2 clear 3 star runs, along with Selena's other mount.

    Now that's my kind of bad boy!

    They both looked fabulous this weekend!!

    Selena O'Hanlon had a fabulous run on her three mounts - 3 cross-country rides, 2 clear and one with only 3.20 time penalties (this was the CIC***). Kendal Lehari was the only other rider that managed to go clear, despite a runout! A quick look at the results will emphasize how fabulous these runs were:

    Mouse&Bay,would you mind if I shared that video clip of Selena and Solo on AFR's FB page?

    There were only 2 double clear runs on cross in the ***, and Selena had both of them, one of them was with Solo (A First Romance).

    Happy to share... I got to sit in the sun and enjoy my new fancy schmancy camera lens.

    Thank you Mouse and Bay for the nice work. It must have been great to be there. O Hanlon Eventing shared that clip of Solo on FB, so then I got to share it and it is very liked. The length is just right for fB and it sums up what I like to think eventing is about at its best! Non horsey people also find the clip exciting.

    What breed is Solo's dam, Fred? She crossed nicely with him!

    It is probably a mistake for me to put my novice pictures up on a thread I started about the Canadian Team riding Fredlets, lol.... but my darling does look pretty in them!

    Sadly, your photos are private, so I can't see them, but at Novice you're 2 levels above where we are! I'd link the photos from my "Fredlet's" debut, but I can't bear to let anyone see the stadium photos (MAJOR extenuating circumstances, but still).
    Love that shot of A Little Romance!!!

    Renascence- don't cut yourself short, you look great even if at novice! And your AFR baby looks very correct and lovely

    Thanks Bzzy, I thought her name was Sotera Tu, too. but I looked up Solo (A First Romance) on pedigreequery, and came up with Sotera, Cdn bred, bred by E.P Taylor, by the French horse Val de Lorne.

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/a+first+romance

    I'll check with his breeder. If it is Sotera, she was an 1981 model, so no longer with us, I imagine.

    There is a wonderful pic of Selena and Solo on FB, and I have tried to copy it here, without success.

    Thank you Vic! She has received many compliments from big name people and I think she is a phenomenal horse! When you have a great horse you are not limited. She lets me have my dreams.

    My daughter showed me how to repost them public, I think.

    I know how you feel! I competed Spirit elementary when she was 5. I had not evented for about 10 years, though I love the sport and it was always one of my goals. I also got my daughter out to that same event, she had never evented, though we had schooled for this. Well there I was waiting to go when they anounced a hold because a rider had fallen off on her head at a ditch and needed to be checked by an EMT...yes it was my daughter on her pony who had never refused a ditch ever! Then they told me to go because she was out of the way...we did go clear and won on our dressage score, which my horse usually does.....plus I saw my daughter at the end and she was fine and was mad about the DQ.
    But anyhow I know what it is like when to get around an elementary is a big accomplishment for so many reasons.

    I was always too embarrassed to let anyone see those pics of us, but we have improved ever since!
