1999 Grey KWPN Mare
This talented mare was purchased from Jur Vrieling in Holland with the help of Janko van de Lageweg of VDL Stud. She already had an extensive show record in Holland, showing under TSP Rochelle, and now Mary Jo competes her in the High Adult Jumper divisions. They are working toward the Low Amateur Owner Jumpers and 1.20 meter classes.

2000 bay gelding
Robinhood (Hols) X Aleva (KWPN) by Lucky Boy
This homebred Dutch gelding has proved to be a real workhorse in the show ring. He has given Kaleigh some mileage through the Florida show circuit and they earned ribbons in the high children's jumpers at HITS Ocala 2010. He may not be the most graceful of horses - hence the name - but his heart and his attitude have made him an invaluable part of the Waterhorse stable. An athletic and straightforward mount, T-Rex is enjoyable and rewarding. If you are looking for a trustworthy campaigner, please contact us for further information about leasing T-Rex. He would make a great equitation mount or a child adult jumper mount.
USEF show record for T-Rex
This saint of a horse came to us by way of eventing. He was a successful competitor for Olympian Phyllis Dawson. Viatar has embraced his move from the eventing world to showjumping and performed brilliantly for both Mary Jo and Kaleigh. His unflappable attitude and enthusiasm for the ring earned good ribbons at HITS and a place in the USEF talent search for young riders. We are looking forward to a long and fulfilling career with him here at Waterhorse. Viatar is looking for a job for winter 2011 - 2012. We would love someone to lease him for getting their "feet wet" in eventing or jumpers. Willing to be creative in lease options. We would prefer him to stay at WHF, but open to other options for the right situation for this boy. He is very special!
A few pictures of Viatar in his younger eventing days - WHAT FUN!!
