My registered American Warmblood horse, Glenord’s Rocket Dancer aka Rocki, was my Clydsedale and racing Thoroughbred Appaloosa mare. She was my baby for 26 of her 28 years. Rocki was a Lifetime USDF/USEF member horse. I registered Rocki as an American Warmblood. She was out of a champion Budweiser Clydesdale sire – Clan Butter Glenord’s Glened, crossed with a racing Thoroughbred Appaloosa mare, Rocket to Antares (going back to Native Dancer). I named her Glenord’s Rocket Dancer or Rocki for her barn name.

I have ridden all of my life and I am an absolute horse fanatic! I have ridden most disciplines. I had been a member of USDF, USAE, USEF, USET, and NFDA for many years.

Rocki was the most amazing horse – she would do anything and she was bomb-proof, even when she was a baby. I rode her mostly Dressage and in English Pleasure and Equitation, and had also been working on Western Riding patterns too, which I find is very similar to Dressage. But alas, I have a back issue now that only allows me to ride Dressage since it is more upright and uses core muscles more. She was my absolute love as I had her for almost 22 years since she was 2 1/2 (1993 mare) until she passed in September 2020.
