CARTUJO VIII Finished His Requirements for a USDF Performance Certificate
USPRE is pleased to announce that Cartujo VIII owned by Dr. Judith Streisand and ridden in Grand Prix by Holger Bechtloff, finished his requirements for the USDF Performance Certificate in Grand Prix on Juanuary 7th 2012.
The requirements are ten (10) scores above 60 % in a particular level. Cartujo VIII received a Performance Certificate in First level when he started showing, so he has now come full circle.
Judith Streisand said: ” It has been a wonderful journey – Holger, my husband and I always had faith in this horse, and I am so pleased that P.R.E.’s are now getting the recognition they deserve, both in the U.S. and internationally. Thank you to USPRE for helping to promote the “original dressage horse . Ten years ago when I bought Cartujo, I was told that P.R.E.’s were fun to ride, but not to compete. They were not ” real ” dressage horses. I did not care as I loved the breed, and, happily found that they are indeed real dressage horses. Cartujo has not only been fun to ride, but also to train and compete “
The Board of USPRE congratulates the dressage pair for their recent achievement at Grand Prix level and acknowledges Judith & Shelly Streisand for their commitment to campaigning their wonderful horse.
