"[Rashka] definitely improved the Hanoverian mare's foal's canter and hind end" on our 2018 colt, Roulette, out of Fleurette by Fabuleux. "[H[e has been super dispositioned as well!"  - Heather Thacker

"He is the most intelligent horse I've ever been around and his personality is unbelievable.... He is BRILLIANT ... He basically learns everything he's taught immediately. From day one his balance has been phenomenal and his gaits are very soft/elastic.... His canter to so fun, I have to remind myself to make him work in the trot. He's sensitive to the aids with an easy forward and excellent downwards.... He loves to work, his temperament is excellent (sleeps in the cross-ties), and he knows a bunch of tricks that he'll perform for a cookie. He's fabulous."     - Katie Lawrence about her Rashka son Radicus
