BDF bred "Mia", now residing at Woodside in California  (Trakehner x Connemara). This mare received 9's on her gaits from "S" level dressage judges and was sold to Michelle Cale for her daughter, Charlotte. With Charlotte as a very young teen, the pair were USEF Halfbred Connemara of the Year - 2015 Eventing and the Region 6 Junior Training Level Dressage Reserve Champions! Currently competing together at Training Level Eventing.

BLACK DOG'S TOP OF THE MORNING
 
2009  Mare, Black Dog's Fiorella (Trakehner) x WH Topgun (Connemara)
 
 
This lovely mare was originally retained by BDF for five years and both Beth and her friend Lauren DeLalla showed Mia in eventing.  In May of 2014, BDF decided to offer this lovely mare for sale and she was sold to the Cale Family in Palo Alto, CA and currently Mia resides at The Horse Park at Woodside.  Mia will be eventing with Charlotte, who is hoping to qualify with Mia for Young Riders in the next few years.  Their trainer is John Robertson, who used to compete the Glenormiston stallions in Australia!
 
Mia has three exceptional gaits and is 15.3 at five years of age.  As a Trakehner/Connemara cross, Mia got the best of both breeds - athletic and graceful and full of personality.  She has evented to the Novice level, with 9's on dressage tests, scores as low as 26 and both brave and beautiful over fences.  We miss this lovely girl every day.
