Wellington, FL - Sahar Daniel Hirosh, owner of SDH Dressage based in New Hope, Pennsylvania showed everyone what can be accomplished through a great dressage training program by riding two horses into top honors at the 2013 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, Dressage National 3 Show. Hirosh rode Wienlien, a five-year-old Oldenburg mare, to a score of 72.759% in First Level Test 1, and the 8-year-old Warmblood gelding, Aragon, to a 70.000% in the Fourth Level Test 1.  Both horses are in training with Hirosh, and he is excited to continue progressing them both to the FEI level. Aragon, who is owned by Francis Murphy of Warrington, PA, has been surprising everyone with his ability to quickly move up through the dressage show levels this season. “Aragon is a true competitor who tries with his whole heart each and every time he enters the show ring,” described Hirosh. "This horse keeps surprising me with his ability,” he continued. “He just has an amazing mind, and I’m hoping that he can take me all the way to Grand Prix.”{C}

Hirosh explained that Aragon came to him with no prestigious bloodlines or official training to his name, but he had an owner who believed in him. “I never thought he would go past First Level when I met him,” he described. Now, Hirosh has him on a weekly training program that consists of two days of work, followed by a day of rest, followed by two more days of work. He is currently showing and winning with Aragon at Fourth Level, and is confident that they will quickly be working their way up.

Hirosh also rode into the ribbons on Wienlien, (x Hotline out of St.Pr./El. Wienlady II x Don Gregory/Figaro) who is owned by Dr. Roberta Weiss of Wynnewood, PA. This talented mare was bred in Germany by the Oldenburg Horse Breeding Society’s North American director, Holly Simenson, and recently imported to the US. In 2010, the mare completed her performance test in Germany with highlights including an 8.0 for Trot and 8.5 for Rideability. This same year, she was invited to compete at the prestigious Elite Mare Show at Rastede.  Hirosh is encouraged that Wienlien is showing so much aptitude to easily continue into the upper levels of dressage, and he’s excited to be the one to take her there.

Sahar Daniel Hirosh is an International Grand Prix rider and competitor, as well as a USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist. He owns and operates his successful training business, SDH Dressage, out of New Hope, PA, and takes great pride in bringing young horses up the levels and through Grand Prix. “It’s not about only working with the physical body, but also working with the soul of the horse,” comments Hirosh about his training program. He truly values his relationships with his clients and their horses, and he insists that at SDH Dressage, the welfare of the horse comes first and foremost. Hirosh has trained extensively with numerous top professionals including six-time Olympian Robert Dover and US “O” Judge, Ann Gribbons. During the 2013 Winter Equestrian Festival, Hirosh has been working out of Everglades Dressage, which is owned by his friend and fellow trainer, Bethany Peslar.
