NOVEMBER 2007 NEWS
Very exciting news this month is 'Custom Remedy' competing in the prestigious 2007
NRHA futurity in Oklahoma during November and December. 'Remedy' has been in training
with Andrea Fappani in Calafornia since his start, and it is hoped he will join the Oakridge
show string in the UK and Europe for 2008 ridden by Lita. Also home to England comes
'Tejons Dunit' a 2004 bay mare, who will be shown in the UK in 2008. 'Taya' placed 5th in the
French futurity with Ilan Rosenberg. Started by Lee here at Oakridge she has been shown lightly
in Europe and has always been a family favorite.
2007 British Reining year end awards have been announced and Lita and
Bay Reyner have won 3 of the championship titles. Taking BR and NRHA non pro
rookie, BR limited non pro and BR Intermediate non pro, this is a great way to retire
Bay to the breed barn where she will stay with Oakridge and hopefully produce our
champions of the future .What a fabulous mare she has been, honest and with a great
big heart, she has tried her best every time shown, and commands our greatest respect.
She already has a very promising colt in training in Germany and he is very much on track
for the 2008 European Futurities. Bay is due to foal in April 2008
Becky had a great show at The West Coast Circuit winning the Novice Amatuer
all around with her lovely mare Miss PJ Zippo. Lee also showed the mare in the
special event Pleasure Jackpot, taking first place for Oakridge. Lita also had a
reat show winning the West Coast Circuit Champion award for non pro reining
, and The Ilan and Niki Rosenberg reining shield. With Lee and Becky taking a
break, it was up to Lita to fly the flag at The Garden of England where she placed
in the Ltd and intermediate non pro and won the NRHA rookie with lots of help with
the cheering from our friends.
This month has seen the start of the UK Show season at Quarter Horse 2000, with numerous placings and wins by Lita and Bay and also Lee with PJ and our client's younger horses.
