|Diva is a Grand National and Regional Champion Hunter Pleasure mare with incredible bloodlines and an enviable show record to match. She is sired by Beethoven, a son of the incomparable Noble Flaire, out of the great producer MyBlue Heaven, making her a paternal sister to such grand horses as Saralin Rex Harrison GCH, Dragonsmeade Soloist, RWF Paganini GCH, Dragonsmeade Bravura, and the record-breaking Dragonsmeade CarnegieHall.
She is out of one of the most important mares ever produced by Merriehill Farm, Merriehill Isabeau, herself a World Champion and the dam of World Champion Merriehill Home Town Hero.
Diva began her show career as the 2009 Morgan Weanling Gala Grand Champion and has continued with wins in the hunter pleasure division at the most competitive midwestern shows since she was a three year old. A few of her notable wins include —
- Grand National Champion Hunter Pleasure 3YO Mare
- Gold Cup Regional Jr Hunter Pleasure Champion 2013
- Buckeye Challenge Hunter Pleasure Champion 2014
- Tanbark Morgan Hunter Pleasure Stake Champion 2015-2016
- Reserve World Champion Amateur Hunter Pleasure 2015
- Top Three World Champion Ladies Hunter Pleasure 2015
- Grand National Champion Hunter Pleasure Amateur Mare 2015
- Reserve World Champion Hunter Pleasure Amateur 2017
- Grand National Champion Hunter Pleasure Amateur Mare 2017
- Grand National Reserve Champion Hunter Pleasure Ladies Mare 2017
She took 2019 and 2020 off to produce a beautiful 2020 filly by Cingate Revelation, ISA Champagne Problem.
Back to work in February of this year, Diva went right back to the winner's circle at the Bonnie Blue National in May, winning the Morgan Open Hunter Pleasure qualifier and finishing as the Morgan Open Hunter Pleasure Stake Reserve Champion. Our plan is for her to compete at the Jubilee Regional in September and then on to Grand National in October.
Diva is a classically beautiful Morgan mare with a strong trot, perfect frame and willing heart. She is kind in the stall and has no vices. She bred and foaled easily and was an excellent mother. There are so many great options for her, and we feel like she has many competitive years for any rider. We have to make room for her daughter to come into training this fall.
Plan a visit to see her at Indian Creek or at one of her upcoming shows.
