Top class thoroughbred mare who was champion mare at her Hanoverian inspection. Merging was one of a handful of TB mares entered into the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program based on her jumping scores from her mare performance test. This fabulous mare finished on her dressage score of 30% at her first Novice outing at Fair Hill on 5/16/10 and has progressed up through Prelim for the 2011 season.

 
A note from her owner:

“I met Merging when she was just three years old. She was in training at the Monmouth racetrack when she came up lame and was sent in to a referral hospital for a bone scan. I saw her in an exam room and mentioned to one of the technicians that I loved her type. With a poor prognosis for racing soundness, she came home with me the next day.

The following year we started her lightly under saddle and presented her to the Hanoverian society for her mare inspection and Mare Performance Test. She presented herself well and was accepted into the Hanoverian jumper breeding program. Merging then had three offspring for my Clear Blue Farm, the third one was a filly that I decided to keep and that meant Merging would be put up for sale.

At the time Boyd was doing a wonderful job with my homebred mare Lillian Pink and although he wasn’t sure about representing a barely broke ten year old mare for sale, he agreed to take her on. While he went to Aiken for the winter, Silva and Caitlin started Merging back under saddle in Pennsylvania. Six months of dedicated work with Caitlin and the mare started to show some promise. Boyd put the idea out there that he felt she had the potential to go to the four star level, in spite of her age, and that maybe we should rethink the idea of selling her. So now we are on the four star track.

It is a bit of a long shot for a mother of three on her third career to make it to the top level, yet I am looking forward to the journey.” – Laurie
