I am sad to say that it has been far too long since I updated everyone and spread the good news on how horses sold by the team here at Ultimate Equine are doing in 2019 with their new owners! And they are doing amazing! I am so proud of each of these horse and rider pairs (and their wonderful support teams). It is such a wonderful thing to watch the journey as they progress towards their goals. I would like to congratulate and thank each one for the updates and allowing me to follow along.
Rose of Zack:
Rose was purchased in 2017 by Lauren from North Carolina. This lovely young mare has remained in Europe training with our partners in France before moving to Holland to train with Saskia in late Summer of 2018. She had her competition debut earlier this year and has done extremely well! Her last show in Europe before she heads to New Jersey to meet up with Lauren at Barisone Dressage was Almelose Ruiterdagen where she experienced her first multi-day competition. She did very well, scoring 65%, 71%, and 67.5% on her L2 level tests. Rose is now preparing to fly to the US next week, so expect to see her with Lauren in Wellington for the 2020 season!
Frontline & Even Better:
These two handsome bay Vivaldi sons are also owned by Lauren from North Carolina. With some excellent training from Michael Barisone, Lauren has achieved her USDF Bronze Medal on these two horses. We are looking forward to her FEI debut!

Owned and trained by Keni Kerin (Keni Kerin Dressage, North Carolina), “Wellie”, started competing at the FEI levels this season with excellent results! At his PSG debut in June, he won his first two PSG tests with a 64.5% and a 62.9%! We look forward to seeing lots more from this exciting combination.

Dante’s Ring of Fire:
This gorgeous black youngster is a new arrival to the USA! He is owned by Michelle Frazier from North Carolina. With the superb training of Keni Kerin, Michelle and Dante have been on a huge winning streak. Since his arrival, Dante and Michelle have been to five competitions at First level and have placed first an impressive eight times! This is a pair to watch for in the seasons to come!
“Tay” is a wonderful gelding purchased in 2016 by Rebecca from Florida. After some time away from competition for Rebecca to focus on her studies, they have come out with some outstanding results for the 2019 competition season with their latest result at the Grand Oaks III with a qualifying 65.882%!
Davinia and owner Jessie qualified for the USDF Regional Championships in two competitions this season with their final qualifying score of 69.58%! Jessie, along with trainer Brianna Zwilling, has carefully been developing this wonderful mare and it will be exciting to watch their progress.
It has been a long and exciting journey as a person and as a business, but Ultimate Equine has now been in business for 20 years! As always, I would like to thank everyone who has supported me and encouraged me along the way. I could not have done it without you.
