Last stand at the Rubicon!!

in the very last Horse Trials event in Area 11 (Virginia, at the end of the northern hemisphere Fall, Lisa Kurr had a super run on Rocco, to come a very close 3rd in the Novice Rider class. (only 1 point off 1st and =2nd place)finishing on their dressage score on 37.5 penalty points.

Rocco's winter white is coming through!!

Rocco's dam, Canyonleigh Katy Stardust, is also dam to C.Cloudchaser (sire of "Cloud"). Katy's a big girl (C. Peppermint Valley Commander x Kalarama Penny), a very valuable brood mare, and would pass on the jumping gene from both her parents!!


  1. Rocco has now been clipped and has gone almost white! Lisa did a super job with her ride!

  2. I got lots of feedback from the family to the effect that they really look to be a professional combination now!! Great work, coach!!
    Well done Lisa!!

  3. P.S.It's fascinating to watch his colour changes!
    At home, Cloud is a more mellow yellow to rich gold, to obviously diluted chestnut in the latest, wet, photos!
