The United States Equestrian Federation Silver Stirrup Award program announced at the end of December 2017 that Pamela Pentz and Rodioso were the Zone/Regional Grand Prix Champions for the Performance Horse Registry. Wonderful way for me to hang up my competition spurs with my wonderful partner Rodioso. Thank you to USEF and my great Team for making it all possible, especially Rodioso!!!

Our lovely 2017 filly by Rodioso named Rainbow went Premium at the German Oldenburg mare/foal inspection that we hosted on July 24, 2017. She showed lovely gaits with much ground cover and very correct conformation. She is out of our imported Trakehener mare Sophia KD who goes back to Kostolany on her dam side. Expertly handled by Michael Boggs who always does a great job for us. See you all next year!
