Congratulations to Alison Brock on Selection to US Olympic Team

We are so proud of student Ali Brock who has been selected to the US Olympic Dressage Team for the Rio Olympics riding Claudine and Fritz Kundrun's stallion Rosevelt. Ali is a longtime student of Michael and we are thrilled that her hard work and dedication has paid off in the greatest of honors. Her selection is well deserved and we are looking forward to seeing Ali shine in Rio this summer! 


Young Horse Pipeline at Barisone Dressage

We have been steadily developing a pipeline of young horses in our training program over the past few years, and are finally beginning to see the fruits of our labors paying off. Every year Vera brings a few foals over from Holland, with the idea that we will have young horses of every age and stage in our program. Currently our two 2012 mares have relocated to our main barn and are ready to get started under saddle. The younger horses, foaled in 2013-2015, are still living in our young horse barn at the back of the farm, which has a cozy indoor space as well as ample turnout on good footing with their friends. All of these horses are growing steadily into our future dressage stars.

Sussex Dressage

We had a lot of fun at Sussex last week! Vera won the Grand Prix on Urbanus, who is looking stronger all the time. She's really excited for the upcoming competition season. Justin showed Aconto and in two rides earned his USDF Gold Medal; this is very exciting news for Justin, and pretty impressive for Aconto, who just helped Avery Hogan earn her Gold Medal too! Jillian Kirkpatrick is gaining valuable experience in the Grand Prix ring, and Maureen Goge won both the Intermediate 1 classes and is ready to move her horse Seamus up to Grand Prix next season!
