The USDF Convention was a great time.  Who would have thought that it would be 60 degrees in Denver in December?
 The convention was very interesting and there are some very exciting rule changes coming for DSHB In-hand Shows in 2009 and 2010.  Attending the Board of Goveners as a NEDA delegate was a long day but the outcome made it worth while. 
Attending the Symposium with Kyra Kurkland was amazing.  She has an incredible gift with horses and does a beautiful job teaching.  It was a memorable symposium with lots of great riding tips.
A highlight of the week was the awards banquet.  I picked-up the Champion USDF Horse of the Year cooler and plaque for Reminisce HM.  I also got to see an example of the Reserve Champion Horse of the Year plaque that Legacy received.  Allison...you are going to love it.

Saviola accepted for Licensing in Munich, Germany  Saviola (Sandro Hit - SPS Pakesa)
Saviola (Sandro Hit - SPS Pakesa) was presented at the licensing preselections in late October.  He showed himself very well and generated a lot of excitement from the observers. 
The licensing will take place in Munich on the last weekend in January.  Following the licensing all colts will be auctioned.  If anyone is interested in this young stallion, let me know and I can arrange for you to see video and vet information.
