Behind The Stall Door With: Veronica

They say a good mare will give her all for you and Lauren Kieffer’s four-star partner, Veronica, will do just that…but not without pulling a few faces first.

Kieffer, 27, has been partnered with Team Rebecca LLC’s 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare (Pacific—Kimbel, Ferro) since 2013 after she took over the ride from Karen O’Connor.

They won their first three FEI competitions together and went on to become the best placed U.S. pair at last year’s Rolex Kentucky CCI**** in second and placed ninth at the Pau CCI**** (France) in the fall.
