Horse World.Com's "Dressage Horse of the Decade"
THE ULTIMATE MORGAN DRESSAGE HORSE
Winston is without a doubt the most successful Morgan showing in dressage today. A five-time Morgan World Champion, he has won numerous national awards from the United States Dressage Federation, United States Equestrian Federation, American Morgan Horse Association, and the Morgan Dressage Association. Winston has won more than 60 championships and year-end high point awards. Winston's latest award is the USDF Grand Prix performance certificate, and he is the only Morgan in history to earn this distinction.
Currently he is showing at Grand Prix, the very highest level, with Daid Macmillan, his trainer and rider for the last ten years. To watch Winston's musical freestyle, go to the following:
Winston lives at West Mountain Morgan Farm, where he spends most of his time in pasture where he can roam at will, socialize with his friends, and make sure all the other horses know that he is the boss. David usually rides him for about 45 minutes three or four days a week. In addition to his dressage work, he enjoys going out on the trail, and has carried owner/rider Karin on many trails in the rugged Utah mountains and desert, and has been ridden above 10,000 feet elevation.
Winston's dam was a very athletic eventer who would jump anything she was presented with. His sire showed through 4th level dressage and undoubtedly could have gone to higher levels. Included on his five-generation pedigree are such greats as HVK Santana, Troutbrook Playboy, Waseeka's Nocturne, Schoolmaster, Beamington, and Orcland Leader. From these Morgans Winston inherited his serious work ethic, athletic ability, sound body, and arrogant attitude.
