I would like to welcome Faye Woolf’s 6-year-old Dutch warmblood gelding Aesthete, known as “Stately”, into my group of competition horses. Stately is a very nice young horse by Trento B out of a Gribaldi (Tortilas’ sire ) mare.

First of all I would to thank Faye for making this possible for me. Stately was very successful as a four-year-old with Karen Monk-Reilly riding him. Karen has done an amazing job at bringing this wonderful young horse along; they won the won the Markel/USEF National Young Horse Championship for four-year-olds with a score of 86.8%! Last year they finished 5th in the Championship for 5-year-olds with 81.6%.

Karen has let him him “be a horse” and did not pressure him too early, and Stately has an amazing mind and great personality. He not only has amazing physical ability but also amazing mental ability, the likes of which you cannot find very often in a horse. I am very exited to have him in my group and I am looking forward to starting this season with such good horses!
