It's not happening everyday that you find your trainer in the yellow pages and become the bronze medal winner at the North American Young Riders' Championships only three years later. Ryan Hites, his trainer Roxanne Christensen and the Hannoverian Staatsmann (by Sandstrem out of Akelei) have proven to be a successful combination.
Read the story of Ryan Hites and Staatsmann. A young rider with elegance and an incredible style of riding. His soberness and calmness are an example for every Grand Prix and Young Rider!
While others are affected by pressure and stress, Ryan stays cool in the saddle and makes Staatsmann run on clouds.
