What a week! Mimi wrapped up the Canadian Nationals with two more National Championships aboard Sally Henry’s talented Half-Arabs. Arab/warmblood stallion Wolkenzorro earned Natl Champion at 3rd Level and PR Captain Hook, who only a year ago was recovering from colic surgery, earned his 11th Natl Championship at PSG! At age 20, Hook is now a 5-time Natl Champion at PSG.

Mimi’s quest for international dressage competition was featured in the NDSU College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources Alumni News Magazine (page 11)! Mimi is a proud 2013 graduate of NDSU’s Equine Science program.
We are so pleased to see all the coverage that resulted from our news that Schleese Saddlery Service is sponsoring Mimi and that our new Westphalian Studbook e.V. mare, Abraxa, will help facilitate Mimi’s goals of reaching international competition. Thanks to our NBC, CBS affiliates and the Bismarck Tribune for all the fantastic coverage!
Abraxa’s importation from Germany to one day serve as Mimi’s international competition horse was the subject of extensive local media coverage, including this package from our NBC affiliate, KFYR-TV. Abraxa is a 2013 black Westphalian mare (Abraxa Stute x Astrix Fidermark) we purchased at auction from Germany with the help of Rhegan White, the Westphalen e.V.’s Director of Sales/Marketing for the USA, Canada & UK. Rhegan ensured we found the right fit and the process went smoothly, start to finish.
