2000 Registered Westphalian Mare
Riva Dee, born in May of 2000, is a one-of-a-kind mare. She stands 16 hands with a striking silver tail and flashy markings. Both her sire, Rheingau, and her dam, Pila, descend from superior sire and mare bloodlines.
Riva Dee’s sire, Rheingau, placed second at his stallion performance test. In 1999, he placed in the final dressage round for four-year-olds at the Bundeschapionate (the German National Championships for warmblood horses), and repeated that success as a five-year-old in 2000.
The sire of Riva Dee’s dam, Pila, is Potsdam. In 2002, Potsdam was the winner in highest-level dressage tournaments in Műnster, Neuműnster, Nörten-Harenberg, Redefin, and Rulle. He has an approved son in standing as a state stallion in North Rhine-Westphalian State Stud Warendorf. Pila’s grand sire is none other than the North-Rhine-Westphalian state stallion Polydor. Polydor was twice honored with the title “Sire of the World,” the world’s best transmitter for showjumpers.
Among Riva Dee’s accomplishments:
- 2014 IDR with Emily Park, CDI Jr 2011-2013
- Competed with Emily Park In Region 6 and Region 7
- 2007 FEI World Para Equestrian Dressage Championships, Hartpury, UK
- Qualifying Candian para-athlete for the Paralympic Games in 2008.
