Jennifer's Parocco and Steinberg
Pair wins both the Great American/USDF Region 6 and the Northwest Dressage Championship titles
Jennifer's ParoccoThe show boasted a record five Grand Prix entries, led by Jeremy Steinberg and Jennifer's Parocco. The pair from Seattle, WA, delivered a fluid and harmonious freestyle performance set to a classical score punctuated by Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf."


The ride won both the Great American/USDF Region 6 and the Northwest Dressage Championship titles with a score of 71.56 percent from judges Gary Rockwell and Lilo Fore.


Even in cool, blustery conditions, the 16-year-old, Wurttemberg gelding, turned in his best test--and best score--of the year. "He has just bloomed this year. He's really come into his own," said Steinberg. The pair also won the NWDC Grand Prix (69.37%) and the Region 6
Grand Prix Championship (67.91%).

Jennifer's Parocco
Robert Dover found Parocco as a 3-year-old in Europe for owner Jennifer Smith to take up the levels. Smith campaigned her horse to Intermediaire I but has been unable to ride since a car accident seven years ago. During the past two years, Steinberg has ridden Parocco in between filling in for Dover in Florida while Dover was away at the Olympics.


"We're quite surprised at how well he is doing at this level," said Steinberg of Parocco's first year at Grand Prix.


Parocco is the only horse Steinberg has shown this year. Because he claims he is "a better teacher than a rider," Steinberg travels every weekend for clinics. Teaching during the week in the Seattle area leaves him little time to train, so he is selective of the horses he rides. And although the experience of riding as many as 13 horses a day for Dover last year was invaluable, he said, he found himself homesick for the Northwest and returned to the business he has developed over the past 10 years.


Foxy's ParoccoFunding and several other variables will determine whether Smith and Steinberg, 29, will campaign Parocco at Grand Prix next year in California. "He just keeps getting better, but what is most important is his soundness and his health," Steinberg said.


Steinberg is quite careful to preserve the older horse: "I never overwork him; I try never to make him sweat. I treat him as if there is something wrong with him, so hopefully there won't be anything wrong."


This approach agrees with Smith, who insists that anyone who rides her horses treat them just as well as she would. It also agrees with Parocco, who "isn't the most coordinated horse in the world but is so quiet and kind about doing his job," his rider said.
