The 2013 VA
keuring belonged to our 2005 Tsjerk X Ritse mare.
On October 1st we were at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington for the KFPS/FHANA/MAFA Friesian keuring where Suzy Stafford drove Sjaantje Sport in the carriage driving IBOP class to an 81.5 score. It was the highest 2013 score in North America and they won the Dream Gait Friesians Driving IBOP Cup! It got better for later that day in her in-hand class, Sjaantje became a 1e [first premium] mare, and before we left the arena, she was also awarded a coveted permanent "Crown" mare title. Sjaantje's dam, Wiestke Janke V's, 2013 foal, Spartacus DCTF, earned a 3rd premium in the weanling colt class. I find it unbelieveable that as a small farm Friesian breeder, my horses are achieving at these levels.
