A lovely email came to us from the owners of Mozambique V (Botswana x Misty Morn V). We love getting updates on offspring from our stallions. Particularly this colt, bred by Sheila Varian. To see the product of her planning come to life and start his career. And he has made us proud.
Good Morning Angela & Allison,
Dayton & I wanted to give you both a quick up date of our young man’s progress.
As of yesterday June 13th we have owned Mozes for 5 months. We have logged over 100 hours of “riding time” with AHA”s “Frequent Rider Program”.
We have just come back from a very deep Region 5 Sport Horse Off site Championship show w/ 160+ horses attending. As proud parents, we have to brag!! 🙂
Mozes is now a 2 time Regional Champion, 1 Reserve Champion & 1 Top Five.
The Championships were earned in English Dressage & Western Dressage. The Reserve was earned in Sport Horse Under Saddle Jr horse & the Top Five SH in Hand.
Also big news…..he was First in Halter in the pre show out of 18 & 4th out of 18 other geldings!! First in Junior Horse under saddle as well.
Plus he was named “Reserve High Point Gelding” in Hand for the pre show!
After 2 Regional shows he has earned 57 of the 75 points needed to have his first +.
This coming Tue we leave for our favorite show of the year Region 6 in Douglas Wy. Due to the lengthy drive we will take 4 days to drive, and be there 4 days before the show for him to adjust to the new surroundings.
There he will compete in both main ring (halter & hunter pleasure jr horse) and sport horse (in hand, under saddle, and both western & English dressage) I feel confident he will have ++ by the end of the show.
Will keep you posted to the results after the 4th of July.
Below for your viewing pleasure..our young man…Mozes.
There is also a link for you to click on to see him at the show. He is number 190.
cheers for now,
Debbie & Dayton Canaday
