Throwback Thursday: Victor Dakin Was King Of The Hills At Radnor

Denny Emerson may never have known the exact breeding of Victor Dakin, but whatever he was, he knew he was special.

The diminutive gelding was the horse that made Emerson, taking him to the 1974 World Eventing Championships (England) where they earned a team gold medal for the United States, and carrying him to victory in the advanced division at the 1976 Radnor-Hahnemann Three-Day Event Championships (Pa.).

Behind The Stall Door With: Powell

Australian eventer Ryan Wood prefers to make his own horses, and this year his hard work has come to fruition.

He completed his first Rolex Kentucky CCI**** riding McLovin and Fernhill Classic, picked up his first CCI*** win on Powell at Jersey Fresh (N.J.), then followed it up with the Jaguar Land Rover Bromont CCI*** (Quebec) title on Woodstock Bennett.

His most recent big win came on Powell again when he won the Nutrena/U.S. Eventing Association American Eventing Championships (N.C.) advanced division.

“I’m really happy with how the test went tonight—one little blip, but there’s always something that can be better. It was a great atmosphere out there with loads of people watching. It was nice to ride,” she said.

Kaytee Mountain and Susan Gallagher Are Representing The OTTB At Dressage At Devon

When Susan Gallagher picked her off-the-track Thoroughbred Kaytee Mountain out of a field nine years ago, she never expected she’d be doing dressage, let alone cantering down centerline at the Dixon Oval.

But along the way the gelding showed his knack for the sport, and they completed their second Intermediaire I CDI this weekend in their third appearance at Dressage At Devon.

Kynynmont Gunsmoke’s Gideon Is Giving The Little Guy A Good Name

Now Tate and “Gideon” are competing in the Dixon Oval at Dressage At Devon in their second CDI start.

Irwin and Laurencio Overcome The Atmosphere For A Dressage At Devon Win

Sept. 30—Devon, Pa.

Blowing rain, chilly temperatures, people lining the fence and puddles in the ring might be the undoing of some dressage horses, but Canada’s Tina Irwin has been training Laurencio for that situation all year, and it showed as they topped today’s Prix St. Georges CDI at Dressage At Devon.

The pair scored a 71.00 percent to best Guatemalan rider Esther Mortimer, who was second with Adajio (69.21%) and Irwin’s husband Jaimey, who was third on Donegal V (68.81%).

Winner Of The Week: Lutz Bests The Big Horses At GAIG/USDF Region 8 Championships

Susanne Hamilton traveled to Germany last summer with very specific instructions about what kind of horse her amateur client Bettina Hinckley was looking for—“a dainty, elegant black mare that’s easy to sit.”

So Hinckley was a bit surprised when Hamilton sent her a photo of Lutz, a stocky, creamy palomino Haflinger gelding.

“Well I think the only thing I came home with that fit the profile was the ‘nice to sit,’ because I came home with Lutz!” said Hamilton.
