California Girl is a Thoroughbred mare that is purpose bred for Dressage. She scored 100 at her Mare Approval for ISR Oldenburg, with compliments from the inspector—“Very nice mare”. Cali is trained through Second Level and will be out showing in 2017. Clinicians love her natural ability to sit and carry, we love her laid back attitude and delightful personality, and her patience while teaching an eventer who showed hunters through college how to ride dressage. Cali had an injury requiring some off time in 2015, and was bred to the lovely Ehrentanz KD. Prior to her injury she also had begun work over fences, showing excellent scope. See photos her colt, Earnest Charm LSE on our sold page!
