Pik L Gives Dr. Cesar Parra and owner Anne Whitten Early Birthday Presents

Port Jervis, NY, May 2, 2003—Horses Unlimited’s imported Hanoverian stallion Pik L couldn’t have given better early birthday presents to owner Anne Whitten and rider Dr. Cesar Parra. The bay stallion continued his winning streak at the Port Jervis, NY CDI***, April 25-27, claiming blue ribbons in all three FEI classes in which he was entered, including receiving a 71.25% in Intermediaire I. The duo also earned the FEI High Score Award and the Diamond Stud Award (sponsored by Diamond Legacy Breeding) for High Scoring CDI*** Senior Rider.

“I’m elated,” said Ms. Whitten. “My birthday is Monday and these wins are great presents for both me and Cesar, whose birthday is Thursday.” Pik L was imported as both a breeding stallion and international competition horse. “The Germans are a little sorry they let him go,” said Ms. Whitten of the Pik Bube II son. “I receive calls from German breeders wanting to breed their mares to him.”

Dr. Parra and Pik L have now won 15 FEI classes in 2003 at prestigious CDI shows in Florida and New York. “He just keeps getting better and better,” said Dr. Parra. “The horse receives tremendous comments from the European judges. It’s very encouraging.” Dr. Parra hopes to continue Pik L’s success at the Pan Am Games in the Dominican Republic this August. Dr. Parra earned a silver medal in the team competition in 1999 and would like to repeat or improve on his medal winning performance.

Dr. Parra is a USDF Gold Medalist and member of the International Dressage Trainers Club. He trains for his own Piaffe Performance training stable. He and his family split their time between Florida, New Jersey and Germany.
