Happy Renunion


Gigi had a tremendous 2000 Competition season riding the KWPN mare Katinka. The owner bred Katinka the following year and on March 22, 2002 a colt named Vincere was born. Mostly on intuition, Gigi purchased "Vinny" intending for the handsome colt to be the last dressage horse she would train from scratch.

Katinka remained a broodmare for a few years until she was purchased by Heidi Calwell, a local, adult amateur rider. As fortune would have it, Vinny and Katinka both attended a Poplar Place show in spring of 2008. Mother and son had a chance to meet for the first time in six years.
