    This is Amelia and my daughter. I just wanted to share.
    Amelia is a middle aged Lipizzan mare that is retired from her Dressage career. I think she is simply beautiful. :hail:

    I must give credit to the breed also. They love people and love her, and love spending time with us. Let me upload the ones with Arriva. :)

    This is daughter with young mare this evening.

    Beautiful horses and your daughter is so incredibly lucky!

    Do you find it difficult to split your time between horse and dog training?

    She's a beauty.

    Lippizaners are one of my favorite breeds. I blame Disney for that, saw Miracle of the White Stallions as a kid and was smitten. I think I have most of Podhajsky's books, too, and was lucky enough to see the Spanish Riding School on the two occasions they came to St. Louis. What's her lineage?

    Amelia is a Siglavy Dalea daughter, out of a Pluto Bona II mare (Americana). Thanks for the compliments.
