Temecula Valley National 04/22

May 7, 2022

A great show for the Kimberlee Farms horses, jumping clear in every round over the two weeks. 4 Year Old Narley Girl KF placing in every class and winning the .85 Classic. 5 Year old Mistral KF jumped 4 clear rounds with great placings.

5 Year Old (2017) Mistral KF had a very successful outing producing only clear rounds in all 4 outings. The first week she jumped two 1.10 classes, inlcuding one in the Grand Prix ring. The second week she jumped a 1.10 round and a 1.15 round, placing 3rd (out of 27) and 4th (out of 16).

With each show we see Mistral developing her bascule, similair to her father, Etoulon. She is developing a nice uphill canter, and her natural carefullness is showing. With a couple week break before the horses to go the LA Equestrian Center in June, we plan to attempt to retrieve an embryo by Casall.

Mistral is one of the mares being retained by Kimberlee Farms both to develop, and offer embryos to the public.

We are expecting her first foal in the next two weeks by Copycat Z.

Mistrals show schedule for the rest of the year includes a week in LA, then up to Woodside for two weeks, a month in Michigan for the USHJA young horse finals, followed by the winter at Desert International Horse Park in Thermal CA.

4 Year Old (2018) Narley Girl KF jumped 5 rounds, all clear, over the two weeks. Started the first week by jumping a .70 and a .80, placing 4th and 8th. The second week jumping 2 .80s, placing 3rd and 4th.

We decided to test out her gears and go "full send" in the .85 classic. She demonstrated great rideability and competetiveness, winning the class. Narley is available for sale, and is ready to keep winning with a new rider.

This marks Narleys 5th total week of showing, jumping a total of 11 rounds, jumping clear and placing in every one of them.
