What a year this has been for our beloved 2006 Oldenburg mare Chaiya WRF */-/* (Corlando, Father Hogan xx)! After a tie-breaker (based on her conformation and breed type scores), Chaiya was awarded High Score Mare of the East Coast Region!
Based on the scores showcased by all High Score Mares on the ISR/Oldenburg website, Chaiya was the top-scoring premium mare in North America in 2015!
This wonderful mare has had quite a fan club following for years, beginning with her success in the USEA Future Event Horse program. Both as a two year old and three year old, Chaiya was crowned Reserve Champion Future Event Horse. As a three year old, she even scored higher than the Champion! Chaiya then went on to begin a promising career in eventing, competing successfully through training level. She also won USDF dressage Materiale and Suitability classes. After being sidelined in 2013 with an injury sustained competing in what would be her final horse trials, Chaiya proved numerous experts wrong by making a full recovery.
The highlight of the year included a Premium Mare Award at the ISR/Oldenburg inspection at Hilltop Farm in Maryland. Chaiya achieved several scores of 8 and 8.5, and her final score tallied to a whopping 110.5 points (earning her first star)! Following the inspection portion, Chaiya passed the Mare Performance Test with a score of 71.5%, earning a second star (for mare performance). High Score Mare Champion and Two Star Awards, all in one day!
Both of these achievements ensured that Chaiya has now collected two of her three possible Star Awards with the ISR/Oldenburg Registry. Her third and final star will be achieved if she produces three premium ISR/Oldenburg foals. Chaiya is now an ELITE Mare candidate, and after producing one premium foal, she will be upgraded to a two-star, Elite Mare! We are very much looking forward to her first foal in 2017 – it should be an amazing sport horse prospect!
