We are excited to announce that Silva and Benefactor RRS, owned by Melinda Walton and Larry Smith, are currently leading the USEF rankings for 5-year-old Young Horses with an outstanding score of 8.28. Fortissimo B, ridden by Silva and owned by Camilla Van Liew, is ranked 6th with 7.7. Di Solitaire, owned by Ann and Mike Laver, is ranked 7th with 7.62.
While it is early in the year, these are very strong scores. Silva is thrilled with this group of horses and their promising futures in dressage. "Melinda and Larry are so excited! I must give a huge thanks all of the owners for letting me ride such talented young horses," she says.
Fortissimo B is currently for sale and Silva says, "He would make a very exciting horse for a serious rider, because he has everything it takes to make a top-level competitor."
