We love it when we get reports from parents talking about the joy and success their children are having with progeny by our Dynamik Stallions.  This is Don Giallo (x Don Philino) who as a youngster spent some time in training at Dynamik Stallions.  He was awarded Supreme Champion Part Welsh Exhibit at the Perth Royal this year and won 1st place in the Childs Show Hunter Galloway with his young rider Isabelle.  They came home with ribbons from all their classes and we wish them more success in the future..

Jana and Diamant have had multiple wins and places in both jumping and dressage.
