NEW -- November 2010 -- Dafka is moving barns to will be in training with Sven Frei of EWSZ, Ocala, FL, to get some experience over-fences! Thanks to Heidi Basler for putting an excellent dressage base on this talented young mare! Take a look at this super moving, big Donnerhall granddaughter -- Dafka has excellent swing and elasticity and a gorgeous, uphill canter that will wow dressage judges with her medium canter, or eat up distances in the jumper ring.
If you're hoping to show in the FEI young horse classes next year, take a serious look at this young mare. Dafka has the right combination of movement and mind to succeed in the young horse classes. She's big and correctly made with a an extremely easy-going, mellow dispostion.
Dafka won her Materiale class with an impressive 80.8% at her first recognized USDF show, July 2009. She was also Grand Champion Mature Horse in hand. In Florida, summer 2010, she earned scores of over 70% at training levels, with 8's and 9's for gaits and stretchy circles. Dafka is schooling 2nd level, located in Wellington, FL with trainer Heidi Basler, and ready to show.
Dafka stands 17.1 hands now as a five year old. She also free jumps with impressive scope and form, and has jumped small courses under a rider. See her free jumping video below from 2008 (she had a small injury and is wearing a bandage on one hind leg in the video). This mare is reliable and honest and would be a perfect for an adult amateur.
Her impressive movement, along with her attitude and rideability, make her an absolutely top class amateur prospect for the show ring. Dafka is currently schooling first level dressage.
Dafka was a First Premium foal with an overall score of 8.0 at her keuring. Please call or email to set up a showing or for more information.
