Northward Ho! Wellington trainer Rick Rockefeller-Silvia, relocated for the summer to the Windy City – almost. He is now at the Mary Lou and Jenn Moskal’s Legacy USA Equestrian center in Burr Ridge, Illinois, just outside the city. Rick brought Dawn Berarndo’s handsome Oldenburg, Rubinero, to train and stand at Legacy.
Meanwhile, Little Ranches is also losing trainer John Zopatti – who is heading to Pinehurst, North Carolina for the summer where he will ride and train. He is taking along Kristy Lund’s horse Fabio who he has been competing in the Grand Prix. And we are happy to report that Kristy got a new truck after a faulty wiring in the seat heater started a fire in her truck and she lost her dog Goldie at Finals last year.
