Achievement Award Winners
For the 2003 Competition Year

In recognition of outstanding performance by horses trained, bred or sold
by Los Alamos Dressage Center or riders training with us who have earned
special mention in the preceding year.

L.A. Baltic Odyssey

 L.A. Baltic Odyssey (Show Name - Cody)
(Riverman x L.A. Utrilla by Utrillo)
Larry Poulin driving Cody (L.A. Baltic Odyssey) and the Holsteiner, Camden, all owned by Natasha Grigg, MA. competed for the USET in the 2003 World Championships in France.

L.A. Baltic Odyssey, (show name Cody) just 6 years old and in training with Larry Poulin for less than a year before qualifying for a spot on the USET Pairs Driving Team, showed his remarkable talent and heart in the 2003 World Championships.

"Cody" has always performed exceptionally well in the dressage driving phase and it was Larry's intention to use him for this part of the competition and then to team up his more experienced horses, Camden and Conyer for the maraton and cones.  Although very green to the sport, "Cody" was needed in all three phases of the competitive driving competition and poured his heart out to do his best. The USET placed 8th overall.

Cody also won the Pair Horse Classic at the Fair Hill International show Oct. 23-26 where they won both marathon and cones and placed 2nd in dressage driving.

USDF Bronze Medal

Omega, 1996 filly by L.A. Baltic Sun x Terrette xx.

Jeannie writes that Omega displays a most willing disposition and is a "'super horse with a kind disposition."

In her first year showing over fences she easily adapted to the Pre Green hunter division without refusing or spooking at any fences. She sailed over all the courses and was second or third in every class. And in the whole season of 7 horse shows she pulled only one rail. We are pleased and looking forward to springtime.

Bred by Pat Giardalis, NJ, and owned by Jean Tulimieri, CT.
