News from Cottonwood Farm Dressage
Welcome baby, Guinness!
In November, 2011, Jeff & Laura purchased a beautiful Dutch Warmblood colt from Con Brio Farms in Gilroy, CA.
Guinness is 7 months old, and a fabulous mover with an outstanding temperament. His breeding is some of the very best that Laura & Jeff have ever owned. Guinness' dam is by the spectacular Dutch stallion, Rampal, and Guinness' sire is the legendary Dutch stallion, Idocus, made famous by Courtney King Dye. You can see video of both horses on Youtube. Laura is VERY excited about working with her latest dressage prospect. She hopes to start him under saddle in another 2 1/2 years.
October 23, 2016.... Laura and Ryan made their debut at Grand Prix. It was their first time competing at this level. They earned a 57.6%, 1st place! Not bad for the first time out.
Although we hoped to earn the scores necessary for our USDF Gold Medal in 2017; Ryan will undergo stifle surgery this year, so he is out of the competition ring until 2018.
Guinness wins the USDF Breed Show Championships, 2 year old Colt / Gelding division with a phenomenal score of 79.65%! Held at Rancho Murieta on 9/21/13, our little super star wow'ed the judges in the pouring rain, by floating across the sloppy footing! See a short video clip at
