2005 16.3h Irish Sport Horse
Sired by Mine Lord Prince out of Escapade 

Ivan was bred and owned by Carol Girzaitis, but is now co-owned by Carol's sister Nancy and Kristen. Ivan is one of those horses that you wish everyone had an opportunity to ride. He's all business under saddle, but has lovingly earned the nickname "goober" in the barn (anyone who knows Ivan understands..!) Kristen absolutely adores this horse because he has such an incredible work ethic and is always looking to please! This team is focusing both on eventing as well as competitive dressage after earning their bronze and silver medals from the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

Sired by Alexander out of Bayberry 

Briley is Kristen's first hombred and he's turned out to be everything that she could have ever hoped for in an eventer! He's handsome, a lovely mover, super confident & a XC machine! Kristen & Briley have formed an incredible partnership over the years and he is not only an incredible athlete, but one of the most loving and in your pocket personality. Kristen and Briley have competed up to the intermediate level in eventing and know they've only scratched the surface of his true talent & capability!
