This year’s BreyerFest is all about color, art, community, and fun because sometimes you just have to break from tradition. In the hunter ring, Appaloosa-Friesian cross Danash’s Northern Tempest & owner Laura Reese have no problem doing just that, making this accomplished equine cause for celebration! First drawn to her striking leopard Appaloosa markings, Laura purchased “Dani” as an unfinished 4-year-old. It’s unusual for an amateur to purchase an unfinished horse, but Dani’s easygoing demeanor and beautiful movement made their pairing a natural one.
Dani and Laura were the Circuit Champions in Rusty Stirrup for ESP’s 2019-2020 Holiday Series, and trainer Ashley Glica has also shown her in the USHJA 3' division, Green Hunter 3', and Derby. Laura shares, “Every time we school or compete, we both learn something new. I think that's the beauty of competing as an Adult Amateur - I’m here for the fun of it.” That refreshing perspective is part of this pair’s appeal, and from Dani’s Instagram following to the pair gracing the cover of Wellington the Magazine, it’s obvious that others see it too!
