Thursday, February 13, 2014
Kathleen Raine and her husband, David Wightman, are owners of Adventure Farms in Murrieta, CA. They purchased her current mount, Breanna, as a four-year-old at the 2004 Elite Auction in Verden, Germany. Since that time, Kathleen and Breanna have garnered many wins and awards, and they are currently ranked 8th on the USEF Dressage High Performance Grand Prix list. In 2013 the pair placed 3rd at the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions, 2nd in the team competition at the CDI 3* in Hickstead, England, 3rd in the Grand Prix Freestyle at Hickstead, and 3rd in the Grand Prix Special at the CDI 4* in Lingen, Germany. Kathleen and Breanna will also use the funds to travel to Germany to train with Johann Hinnemann.
The Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize Fund was established in 2009 in special remembrance of Carol's mother, May Cadwgan, and in honor of her father, Gordon Cadwgan. Since that time, the Prize Fund has made eight awards totaling $200,000 in support of U.S. High Performance teams.
