    Default I'm So Excited! A Fine Romance Daughter Heading to Europe to Compete!

    I just read on Phoenix Eventing's page on FB that the A Fine Romance daughter A Little Romance, is heading across the pond, to compete at Normandy and Blenheim.

    I'm so excited, nervous, and beyond pleased for her breeders/owners and her rider, Jessica Phoenix.

    A Little Romance has been competing at the IO, ** level, with a recent win in a Two Star up here.

    And now I am also nervous!

    For people who are interested in breeding and bloodlines, ALR is 3/4 TB, 1/4 Trakehner, her damsire is Donaufurst.

    Here she is, winning her class at last year's Indoor Eventing at the Royal Winter Fair.

    When the crowd got pumped and started whooping? That mare really lit up and fed off of it, didn't she?

    Thats one born and bred competitor. Congratulations on getting that rider to showcase your product too. I look toward to following them.

    I have watched that video a hundred times, and I still get excited watching it. The yelling of the crowd, that incredibly loud music ("she's coming!!)
    That little mare just ZOOMED!

    Thank you everyone for the kind congrats and good luck wishes.
    This is a first, having an offspring compete overseas.

    That is one awesome little horse- the ultimate eventer!! Just love her. Just how a proper event horse should be- quick, clever, cat like, incredibly athletic and just sheer love for the job. Is her dam pure TB?
    Look forward to seeing her compete in the Uk.

    Nothing like a little Hail Mary at the end to show off how clever she is! I love her!
