Karin Reid Offield announced that Lingh, Edward Gal’s 2006 World Equestrian Games mount, should arrive in the United States before the end of 2006.
Gal, of the Netherlands, accomplished a great deal with Lingh, placing second at the 2004 and 2005 FEI Dressage World Cup Finals and helping the Dutch team take the silver medal at the 2006 WEG.
The 13-year-old, Dutch Warmblood stallion (by Flemmingh) had been for sale for more than two years according to www.eurodressage.com.
“We are thrilled to have Lingh at Offield Farms,” said Offield in a press release. “Like so many people, I have admired him for years. We feel very fortunate to have him. I am excited about riding and showing him this winter on the Florida winter circuit.”
Offield owns Offield Farms in Harbor Springs, Mich., and is an accomplished dressage rider as well as an enthusiastic supporter of the sport. Offield Farms sponsored the 2005 FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas, Nev. Offield showed Hexagon’s Louisville in the 2006 USEF National Grand Prix Freestyle Championships.
Lingh is a licensed KWPN breeding stallion, and Offield plans to stand him via frozen semen in 2007.
