August INZO's new owner wrote ...
name is Michaela Binda and a week or so ago I got the opportunity to meet
with Darrel (and IDEAL) and speak with him about my mare Inzo . Darrel had
mentioned that I should email you with some photos and info about her.
have owned Inzo for just over two months now and in this short time I have
absolutely fallen in love with her and learned so much from her. She is 10
years old now and finished off at just over 16.1hh. When I first met IDEAL
it took my breath away how incredibly similar they look. Everyone who
meets Inzo or sees a photo of her has nothing but compliments, and she is
quickly becoming a barn favourite. We often refer to her as
“Inzarella” around the barn because she is a princess and slightly
I do not know much about dressage unfortunately, but I must say she is one
of the most comfortable and willing horses I have ridden on the flat.
However, both Inzo and I’s hearts belong in the jumping ring, and there
is nothing she would rather do. She loves to jump and immediately lights
up when there are fences set in the arena.
and I had a very successful first show together, and she blew past all of
our expectations. We competed in the 0.90m (3’) jumper classes, as well
as the 3’ hunters and equitation. She was very brave considering this
week was her first time ever being in a hunter ring. We ended up coming
home with 7 ribbons in total! We were 8th in our 3’ hunters,
7th and 2nd and 1st in our Equitation , 3rd
in our children’s’ medal, and twice we came 5th out of 51
in our 0.90m jumpers. She was so good and we are very proud of her!

for the great letter and super pictures!
