Kayla Reimer and WineGlass Fleurie2009 AHA Region 11Reserve Champion HA/AA Sporthorse MaresIn-Hand Open

2006 inspection tour

WineGlass Fleurie
1993 Bay mare.

Approved for Shagya and Trakehner breeding. Double registered part-Shagya & IAHA Half-Arabian

Bred by Linda Rudolphi

Never out of the ribbons showing in-hand
Nation wide high scoring mare accepted into the Trakehner Pilot program.

Fleurie is being retired as a WineGlass broodmare. She has been ridden on trail and competed in one limited distance endurance ride. WineGlass Fleurie is a full sister to my personal riding horse WineGlass Lambrusco, a natural on the trail and winner of a couple of best condition awards at the age of 14.

The maternal grand-sire of WineGlass Fleurie, JJ Zantar bred by Jim & JoAnne Gernant), was a diversified multi-champion stallion. UMECRA Top Ten 8 years, Canadian National Competitive Trail Top Ten (third) 1982, consistent winner in Western pleasure, English pleasure, Costume, Trail class, and Halter. He also carried the IAHA Region XI runner up queen candidate. His greatest accomplishment, carrying the Rudolphi kids safely on the trail and to the ribbons!

At the Trakehner inspections, WineGlass Fleurie received a 9 for her trot, an 8 for her walk, 8 for type and an 8 for temperament. Judges comments include “has harmony” and “should cross nicely with a variety of stallions.” The Shagya judges also rewarded all three gaits with scores of 8. Comments included “beautiful bay mare with a deep feminine body.” “walk with a swing back, and “uphill gallop.”

WineGlass Chianti
11989 grey gelding.
Purebred Arabian bred by L. Rudolphi

Distance Duo
Appeared in the International Arabian Horse magazine Sept. 1998

Ninety-seven was a very good year for 9-year-old WineGlass Chianti (FF Dandelion Wine x JJ Felica) and his junior rider 15 year-old Olivia Rudolphi. Topping the list of their achievements was winning the purebred championship at the Region 11 Competitive Trail Championship.

WineGlass Chianti and Olivia Rudolphi
That same year three different associations honored the pair. The International Arabian Horse Association awarded Chianti with a distance-riding plaque for 500 miles of competition.

The Upper Midwest Endurance and Competitive Ride Association (UMECRA) honored Rudolphi as its 1997 Top Ten Junior. She had also been the UMECRA champion and reserve champion in ’93 and’94. Finally, the Arabian Sport Horse Association, Inc. named Chianti as its 1997 Champion Competitive Trail Horse.
Rudolphi has been distance riding since she was 8, racking up 1,500 miles of competition. She won a reserve championship at the Region 11 Championship Competitive Trail Ride when she was 10.

WineGlass Chianti and Olivia Rudolphi on the trail.

Three years later she won the Region 10 Championship Competitive Trail Ride (riding WineGlass Bint Darnefti bred by L. Rudolphi). What’s more remarkable is that everything Chianti knows about distance riding, he learned from Rudolphi.

This talented rider/trainer understands how trail riders can benefit from other disciplines. When Rudolphi is not boogying down the trails, she goes to dressage clinics.

This August she even showed Chianti in a Model Breeding Dressage Halter Class in Indiana. Competing against warmbloods, warmblood crosses and Thoroughbreds, this model Arabian placed second.
