Shine is the ultimate combination of temperament, conformation, ability and beauty. He has, and is still having, a long and successful career. He was imported in 2000 from Germany where he competed in Dressage. Upon entering the U.S. he was introduced to the Hunter ring where he excelled.
He won many National, Regional and State Championships in the Green Hunters and then moved on to the Amateur Owner Hunters where he continued to excel.
After being purchased in 2006 by Olde Oaks Farm, he stepped down to the Adult Amateur Hunters with owner Victoria Hunton where they were a pair to be reckoned with. In 2007 and 2009 they were Reserve Champion in the Texas H/J Assoc. and in 2009 Reserve Champion in Zone 7 as well.
In 2010 he has been doing Hunter Derbies exclusively with trainer Liza Richardson of Hunter’s Run Farms. To date he has won the Estes Park Hunter Derby, was 6th in the Texas Shoot Out USHJA Hunter Derby and 5th in the Texas Sporthorse Cup USHJA Hunter Derby.
He has been successful without jumping a single high option in the USHJA Derbies. As a team we decided that after being in the Adult Amateurs at 3’ for 4 years he deserved not to have to do any high options. He has nothing left to prove! At the age of 18 he is still 100% sound of mind and body.
Many of his offspring have been started by amateurs. That is the beauty of breeding a horse with a spectacular temperament, as well as a beautiful head and neck.
