After 25 years riding and training Arabs in Central California, Marilynn Sabovich made a decision to move forward in her dressage career by focusing her attentions on the FEI Young Horse program. Enter Quno, an imported 4-year-old Oldenburg gelding by Quarto B. With the help of Merri Velden, Sabovich imported Quno specifically for the FEI Young Horse program and is now looking forward to competing against our nations best September 8-10th in Kentucky. Sabovich and Quno have not only been successful with the FEI Young Horse but too won the Markel Open High Point at this past weekend's Dressage at Woodside with a 74.231%.
When asked about her high point ride and win Sabovich responded, “Our test was a very good test but we still could be a little more forward. It was wonderful to be able to speak with Markel’s John and Lisa Seger at the show. They couldn’t be nicer and [they] really want to support the young horse program which is great for developing future Olympic horses for the USA.” Sabovich added that she, “deeply appreciated the recognition” Markel provides for the Young Horses and Adult Amateur riders alike.
