Marie Meyers Dressage of Moorpark, CA, has announced the sale of Marisa Festerling's Big Tyme to entrepreneur and amateur FEI level competitor, Betsy Juliano of Gates Mills, Ohio, and Wellington, Florida. Juliano trains with George Williams. Riding Big Tyme, Marisa Festerling was a 2011 Pan American Team Gold Medalist and Individual Bronze Medalist. Big Tyme was purchased by Festerling as a sales prospect when he was 5 years old. She trained and competed Big Tyme successfully through the Young Horse and FEI divisions.
"My partners and I had planned to sell Big Tyme (aka Frankie), but we wanted the right owner to come along," Festerling said. "Betsy rode Frankie very well, and she will provide a super home for him as she does for all of her horses." Referring to the time she has spent with Big Tyme, Marisa added, "Training and competing this very special horse has been an amazing and gratifying experience. He has been a wonderful competitor and partner to me. I am very happy that Frankie will be going to Betsy, and I wish them all the best.”
