Highlife K was also USDF Region 8 Champion at Prix St Georges and then Region 8 Champion the following year at Intermediare-I.

Highlife K was not only a top show horse throughout his career, but the highlight of Danielle’s day. Danielle described Highlife K as the "love of her life" and she is truly heartbroken to have lost such a special partner. Highlife was an absolute joy to be around and words cannot express the true love and special bond they shared.
