Pagano MAC (grey w/chestnut gene) x Estimada XXVI (black) Bred by Oak Hill, Barbara Currie Foaled 2/23/2011 Chestnut PRE Gelding Registered with the IALHA and the FPSH What a pedigree! Pagano MAC was sired by the legendary Evento, who was one of the key PRE's to bring Spanish dressage to the world stage in 1996 at the Atlanta Olympics. Pagano's dam was a Leviton daughter! This is where Jubiloso gets all of his athletic ability! He is a pleasure to drive and anyone can take the reins! His saddle work is superb, he is so naturally balanced. We love his willing and playful personality! In 2020 he started being a school horse for riders too. We are very proud of his calm and willing temperament which has made it possible for him to be a fantastic teacher. A huge thank you to Barbara and Malcolm Currie for allowing us to have this fantastic PRE!!
Jubiloso is the 2021 USAWE Region 5 Reserve Champion, Novice B Open, with Erica!! Hoosier Horse Park, Nineveh, IN, October 23 - 24, 2021 In May of 2021, Erica rode Jubiloso to earn some needed scores for the USAWE Coaches Network application. Those scores also qualified them to attend the region championship show, though at that time, the championship show was still up in the air. Once it was announced later in the year, Erica had planned on only riding her training horse Malagro, but just 2 weeks before the show, Malagro came up lame and had to be scratched from the show. Erica was quite bummed, then Julie reminded her that she was also qualified with Rocky. Erica decided that even though they were not as "ready" as she would like (as she had not been on him in a few months), that she still wanted to give it a go because she did not want to miss the region's inaugural championship show. So they went. They were competing against the talented Emily Kemp, of Wisconsin. She was a great opponent. Emily won Dressage. Erica won EOH. And to clench the title, Emily rode a super Speed phase. Erica was still happy as could be. They did well. They had fun. Rocky was the rock solid boy that we have grown to adore and rely on, and despite the "short notice", he gave his all. And a special moment for Erica was during the awards ceremony. She and Rocky got to carry in the Illinois flag in the flag parade. They had never done this before, but once again, Rocky proved was an awesome boy he is! And on a side note, Erica really enjoyed riding in western attire, and thanks Becky Shervan for helping her to put it together!!
Jubiloso the School Horse!! During 2020 Jubiloso proved to be a fantastic teacher when we put him to use as a school horse. Throughout the year he helped Janita to gain greater confidence and skills so that she would be ready for her next horse. And not only that, she got back in the Working Equitation show ring with him at Introductory level, and continued working on the discipline that she was so growing to love.
Jubiloso Del C - 2018 USEF A/L Driving Horse Reserve Champion!!! This horse!! He is the most amazing driving horse! Anyone can drive him. He has been a teacher to many a student over the years. He just settles right in, ignores the little mistakes, and works like it doesn't take anything to do it. We are so proud to own such a fantastic partner! This moment was made possible by; -Barbara and Mel Currie of Oak Hill, who gave us this wonderful boy when he was a rambunctious two year old. -Sheilah Melsness, who showed him throughout the year. Thank You!!
Jubiloso at the IALHA National Championship Show and FPSH US Open Celebration October 9 - 14, 2018, Katy, Texas. What a fun show! The IALHA has made some great changes, and to have the FPSH involved too...super!! Congratulations to all of our clients. Your horses were fantastic.
But now, a huge Thank You to Sheilah Melsness for taking a chance with our boy Jubiloso! You two did great driving together throughout the year, and it all culminated to this moment- You won your National Championship Driving title! We are so proud! To see the two of you grow together was so rewarding!
Then, to top it off, Howard rode in Dressage Suitability with "J", and got Reserve National Champion! We have NEVER shown our own horse at a National level competition. This means so much to us! Erica even got to play, she entered the Drive to Ride Opportunity class, kind of last minute. It was her favorite moment of the show. Jubiloso was such a good boy, and now that we are clear about the rules....watch out for next time!
Jubiloso the Super Driving Horse.... Anyone can drive him!
Howard earned 6th place in the 2018 WE United National Achievement, American Rider, for Intermediate A level!! He accomplished this by riding Jubiloso, Luchador, and Fresona Intermediate A throughout the year.
