Lorianna – 2016 KWPN Dutch Harness Horse mare
Sir Arie x Glorianda J (Atleet)
Lorianna came home from her very first Combined Driving Event a winner, putting in a solid dressage test, a double clear cones round and winning 3 of 4 hazards on her way to being named the Training Single Horse Champion at the 2020 Kentucky Classic at Hermitage Farm. Her performance was doubly impressive considering she had never performed a dressage test or been on a marathon before, only hauling off the farm twice prior to the event for training opportunities. The new USEF Training Level driven dressage test asks for a lengthened trot, which is new to the level, and “Lola” stepped up to the challenge
Lola is an eye-catching mare with plenty of chrome, well-proportioned and a great size for driving. She gave us a preview of what we can expect as she develops and matures – handling the new environment like an old pro, showing handiness and adjustability in cones and an eagerness to seek the next challenge on the marathon.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2021 – Lola went to the Indiana CDE and competed with barn mate Wesley (Waterman x Plains Delight) in the Preliminary Pair Horse division, bringing home the blue ribbon! This was only Lola’s second show and first competition experience in a pair, and she was a complete professional.
The future looks bright for Lola, and in addition to becoming a top-notch competitor she would be an incredible addition to a quality KWPN breeding program. Not only providing a great outcross with her Hackney Horse sire, Lola is out of a Ster KWPN mare and boasts several Ster, Keur and Preferent names in her dam line.
Lola is uncomplicated to drive and goes in a simple Neue Schule snaffle for all three phases. She has had a rider on her once (the weekend after the CDE) and was unfazed. She stands quietly crosstied/tied, to bathe, clip, tack and for the farrier, loads and hauls quietly, and is a pleasure to work around. She has a Lifetime USEF Horse Registration and is microchipped.
Lorianna is priced at $35,000 negotiable to a competition home.
