HEATHER BLITZ AND RIPLINE PROVE UNBEATABLE AT SAUGERTIES
Hotline Stallion Continues To Show Consistency Moving Up The Levels
Medfield, Massachusetts, USA, May 18, 2015
Pan American U.S. Dressage Team Gold Medalist Heather Blitz partnered Oak Hill Ranch's seven year old Danish Warmblood Approved Stallion Ripline (Hotline x Blue Hors Cavan - Rambo) in back-to-back wins at the HITS Saugerties Show, May 16-17, 2015. Blitz, who is based in Medfield, MA during the summer, has been showing Ripline since he was a four year old. They began the weekend by winning the Prix St. Georges from 16 starters with a score of 71.57%, followed by the Developing Prix St. Georges with 73.01%.
Blitz was delighted with the start of the spring/summer season with the young horse who has resumed the form he had in previous seasons: "I'm so impressed by Ripline's consistency and reliability. He really loves his work and he makes it look easy. His performance at Saugerties was correct, forward and supple. A few tiny glitches were the result of my miscommunication, which will be better next time in the ring. I look forward to every time I get to sit on that stallion."
Bred and owned by Richard Freeman from Oak Hill Ranch in Folsom, LA, Ripline has already had an impressive career winning the National Six Year Old Championship, the National Third Level Champion and Region 8 Third Level Champion. So far this year he was won seven of his nine classes from Fourth Level through Prix St Georges.
