CDS Reserve Champion at Second Level, Open division and 4th place at the CDS 5-year-old Futurity
Ravenna is a wonderful prospect for the top levels in dressage. She was born, raised and started at the Christiane Noelting Dressage Center and has been a joy to work with. She comes out everyday with a willing attitude and tries hard to please her rider. In 2017 she had scores to 75% at first level and 74% at 2nd level and had scores to 8.0 showing in the FEI 5 year old division. Ravenna came home from the CDS Annual Show in 2017 with a Reserve Champion title at the Second Level open division, as well as a fourth place in the CDS 5 year old futurity! We are so proud of our little home bred Ravenna! In 2018 she had scored up to 72% at 3rd level. She showed 4th level in 2019 with scores just over 70% and was schooling all the Prix St George movements. She took a break to have a foal by Wild Dance, who was declared Premium at her Oldenburg NA inspection and Ravenna received the 3rd highest mare score on the West coast for 2020 as well as her Premium Mare status! She is now getting back into work after her foal was weaned in late October.
She is sensitive and forward thinking but level headed and has an especially active hind end. The lateral and collected work come easy to her. Ravenna is already playing with more collected work and shows talented half steps.
She has talent for a professional but will also thrive with any rider, whether you are an ambitious Junior Young rider, Amateur, or Professional looking for a petite, top young horse to bring along through the levels.
