I knew the first time I free jumped West River she loved it and was a natural talent:) I love this picture. This is West River during her cross country at the Jaguar Bromont CCI* last weekend. Her rider/owner Caileigh Levely-Connolly rode her to a 6th place finish in a very large class. She was highest place Canadian and also won the highest place young rider award. West River is 3rd generation of our breeding program. Congratulations to Caileigh and all the connections, and thank you for believing in this talented mare and developing her to her potential.
