SWB (Xhileration)who successfully showed A circuit jumpers, won award for type and movement in the IJF and qualified for the four year old young jumpers with minimal showing. He also showed dressage. His grand father L.A. Inspiration www.losalamosdressage.com/laimsp.htm was a GP jumper and Prix St. Georges dressage competitor. His mother is quiet and sensible, and produced 3 cute moving Welsh ponies before Applause.
