HEATHER BLITZ AND RIPLINE CONTINUE WINNING FORM
Hotline Stallion Proves Consistency and Talent
Medfield, Massachusetts, USA, August 17, 2015
Pan American U.S. Dressage Team Gold Medalist Heather Blitz once again rode Oak Hill Ranch's seven year old Danish Warmblood Approved Stallion Ripline (Hotline x Blue Hors Cavan - Ramb0) to another blue ribbon at HITS Saugerties, NY on August 15, 2015. This weekend's win in the Prix St Georges to score 70.197% brought Ripline's tally to an impressive 24 career wins. Blitz began training Ripline as a four year old and has always found him to be straightforward and easy going for a stallion with a amazing work ethic.
"He has always enjoyed his work and been a pleasure to ride every day," said Blitz, who trains our of Cutler Farm. "We hit it off from the start and I love everything about him. He makes my job very easy and going to a show is no different for him than working at home. For a stallion he's very focused and always gives me 100% so moving up the levels has been seamless and easy for him. He has developed new strength this summer and he's bringing more power into the ring now - he feels like twice the horse he was. I always knew he had talent so watching him progress through his young career has been a joy, and his record speaks for itself. I'm excited to be able to partner him throughout this journey to bring out his full potential as he matures."
Bred and owned by Richard Freeman from Oak Hill Ranch in Folsom, LA, Ripline has demonstrated consistency throughout his training and show career winning the National Six Year Old Championship, National Third Level Champion and Region 8 Third Level Champion.
