Diane Doub and “Prestige”


In the fall of 2012 Diane Doub contacted Elizabeth to help her find her next dressage mount. Her goal was to earn her USDF Bronze Medal and to have a safe a fun mount to learn on and enjoy a partnership with. We found “Prestige” who was in training with “S” judge Tami Batts in Greensboro shortly thereafter and bought him to the farm at the end of October that year. Though Diane had schooled on her previous horse in Canada through 2nd level, she had not had the opportunity to compete him very much, as he turned out to be larger than expected at 18 hds. and so Diane made the difficult decision to sell him. Diane and Prestige have been well-suited to one another with them slowly gaining confidence at the shows together and earning her scores at 1st and 2nd level. They are now planning to continue at 2nd and begin showing at 3rd level this season. They just returned from a fun schooling trip to Aiken, SC.
