New Highlife Buyer’s Rejoice Following Highlife Farms Warmblood Auction
Tuesday, May 4, 2010
“When my daughter saw Dakarai she just fell in love. He’s the right horse for her and we are thrilled that he will be able to take her as far in her dressage career as she wants to go.” Twiggs said they had been looking for a horse for eight months, but that Jessica hadn’t clicked with any. “Jessica is a first level rider now, but her idol is Lisa Wilcox, the head trainer at Highlife,” Twiggs said. “Jessica wants to be like Lisa and we are supporting her. Dakarai’s bloodlines are impeccable and we are just thrilled with him.”
Richard Bowman, of Delray Beach, Florida, purchased Highlife’s Chianti, a German Riding Pony for his children. “We are very happy with Chianti. She will be a dressage pony in the future, right now she is only three years old.”
Jessica Twiggs’ mother agreed, adding that the entire Highlife team was very accommodating in helping Jessica find the right horse. “They had several horses for her to ride before the auction,” Twiggs said. “Highlife wanted it to be a happy ending for the horse and rider, and for us it certainly was.”
John Flanagan, the managing partner of the Wellington Classic Dressage Association, said he attended the auction without any plans of buying a horse. Swayed by the pretty looks of Highlife’s Renaissance Lady, Flanagan bid on her and took her home. “I’m really enjoying her so far. She will be two years old in May but you can really tell that Highlife worked with her. She walked right on the trailer and for such a young horse she is incredibly level headed. I am really pleased that I bought her,” Flanagan said.
