Wyleigh Princess

  • 2010 Black Filly by Weltmeyer out of Elite Mare Heiress.
  • Posted in Facebook 9-13-14 by USDF Gold Medalist, owner Ruth Shirkey: "Heading to Wyleigh's Mare Performance Test. Can't believe it's been 5 years since I made the decision to search for my next ride. The path led me to Cheryl DeRoche Johnson and the tremendous Hanoverian breeding program that she and her great husband Eric have put together with their elite mares. As a weanling, Wyleigh went to Kevin and Ericka Reinig, where she had been ever since. Kevin developed a great partnership with her that won the Breed Show Region 7 Reserve and Champion awards. Ericka has done all the under saddle work and currently Wyleigh is 3rd in USDF Material standings with her last score an 81. Wyleigh has grown into everything I could have asked for up to this point. What a terrific birthday present!"
