Hotline Stallion Extends Roster to 28 Career Wins

Medfield, Massachusetts, USA. September 21, 2015

Pan American U.S. Dressage Team Gold Medalist Heather Blitz and Oak Hill Ranch's seven year old Danish Warmblood Approved Stallion Ripline (Hotline x Blue Hors Cavan - Ramb0) completed an outstanding hatrick at the New England Dressage Association (NEDA) Fall Festival in HITS on the Hudson, Saugerties, NY, September 17-20, 2015.  The partnership continued their domination of the Prix St. Georges arena and added their debut at Intermediare I to Ripline's roster of career wins, which currently stands at 28. 

The pair began their campaign on Thursday with the USEF Test of Choice Open/Qualifying (Prix St. Georges), which the judges rewarded with a 5% winning margin of 78.421% in a class of 23 starters. The following day they returned to outclass a 30-strong field yet again in the GAIG/USDF Prix St. Georges Championship Open with a score of 76.184%.  On the final day their consistence showed once more with their debut Intermediare I test  earning 74.2111%, which the judges acknowledged by more than 6% over their closest rival to take the USEF FEI Test of Choice Open/Qualifying/Misc and conclude yet another successful weekend.  

"This year Ripline's performances have showcased not only his talent but also his increasing strength and power throughout the movements. The judges are recognizing these qualities even more now with everything he brings to the arena. He is exceptional in his consistency and rideability no matter what the questions. In addition, he has the most wonderful temperament for his job and a great work ethic, which shows every time he goes out, and he genuinely loves to perform.  Nothing phases him, which for a young stallion is a great asset - he just gets down to business and always gives me his best so I couldn't be more pleased for him and for Oak Hill Ranch," said Blitz.
