Daniel joined Stone Ridge in August 2007.   Cynthia and Daniel spent the winter getting to know each other and competed in their first horse trial in May 2008. The pair finished on their dressage score and earned a 4th place finish at their inaugural Novice outing.

Cynthia and Daniel competed in USEA recognized horse trials through Training Level as well as Working Hunter and CH/AA Equitation classes.

Cynthia thoroughly enjoyed Daniel and his idiosyncracies but quickly realized that he was just too massive for her tiny frame.

Haydan Vosburgh of Topeka, Kansas purchased Daniel in the fall of 2009. Haydan and Daniel competed at several Novice level horse trials, but have found their true success in the Equitation ring as members of the Oklahoma State Equestrian team.

Flashpoint Arena was named in Daniel’s honor.
