Yvonne Losos de Muniz, an Olympian for the Dominican Republic, has acquired the 8-year old Dutch warmblood mare Felicia (by Vivaldi x Polansky).
Bred and previously owned by Peter Perlee from The Netherlands, Felicia is by Vivaldi out of Waverly (by Polansky x Zaire).
Dam Waverly also produced Daria Suchshinskaya's Grand Prix horse Charlie Brown. In 2014 and 2015 Waverly was competed at international junior riders' level by British Erin Williams.
Felicia competed once internationally under Australian Simone Pearce at the 2015 World Young Horse Championships in Verden. They were 12th in the consolation finals. Afterwards Felicia stayed with Perlee to be prepared for FEI level and was then sent to Denmark to be sold.
"She will arrive in Florida in a few days," said Yvonne. "This exceptional mare was hidden away at Andreas Helgstrand's barn and I am very grateful and excited to have her as one more iron in the fire for the international ring."
