HEATHER BLITZ & RIPLINE WIN USEF DEVELOPING HORSE PRIX ST. GEORGES AND NATIONAL RESERVE CHAMPION
Oak Hill Ranch's Seven Year Old Hotline Stallion To Begin Breeding
Medfield, Massachusetts, USA. August 26, 2015
Heather Blitz partnered Oak Hill Ranch's seven year old Danish Warmblood Approved stallion Ripline (Hotline x Blue Hors Cavan - Rambo) to yet another title in the USEF Developing Horse National Championships at the Lamplight Equestrian Center, Wayne, IL. Their consistency was once again rewarded with the title of Reserve Prix St. Georges Champion after winning the Developing Prix St. Georges on August 20, with a score of 72.895%.
With more than 25 wins to his career, he clearly has a very exciting future and is ready to fulfill his potential as a stallion. "We feel that this is the optimum time to begin breeding with Ripline as he is confirmed at this level with a proven track record," said Blitz, who has been training him since he was a three year old.
"Ripline has enjoyed an impressive career under Heather's guidance," said owner Richard Freeman of Oak Hill Ranch, Folsom, LA. "His value as a breeding horse was evident at the age of two, when he was selected as a potential approved stallion by the Danish Warmblood Society. His final approval, based on performance, was awarded in 2014 when he received a DWB Silver Breeders Medal. I believe his bloodlines, which are rare, will be welcomed by breeders looking for solid rideability, conformation, and excellent movement. Ripline's basic training is flawless and should be a joy in the hands of a talented professional or amateur looking to compete at the highest levels."
Ripline's career includes winning the National Six Year Old Championship, National Third Level Champion and Region 8 Third Level Champion.
