Karensa Muller scored a 72.297% on Linda Raschke’s six year old LBR Celtic (Tuschinski x Jazz) in First Level Test 2. Muller showed LBR Celtic for the first time, “LBR Celtic is a very green horse, a little bit nervous and he’s 18 hands tall. This was the first time ever out. I rode him very conservatively, just to make sure we went around the ring and did what we have to do. He’s fairly young in his training because he is that big. We threw him back in the field as a four year old for eight months. So, when we picked him up as a 5 yr old is when we really started his training. He’s quite insecure, but curious, a promising horse. “ Muller said, “I love the facility because we can walk in. This facility works great. Adam is doing a great job facilitating with his hospitality. How can you beat that? The atmosphere, it’s a very friendly non judgemental atmosphere. Everyone knows we are here to allow our horses to figure things out.”

Born and raised in Holland, Muller received her strong dressage background at the Dutch Riding Academy in Deurne, Holland, “I believe in allowing the horse to develop and not be rushed into what they are doing. I have a Masters in Psychology and am currently busy working on Sports Psychology because I would love to be a Young Rider Team Coach.” Muller has two daughters, a ten year old and a sixteen year old and lives nearby to the show grounds.
