Darlene Wohlart has been sitting on news of several recent sales.

Pennfield Feeds, official feed of the USEF, has licensed an image from Darlene of four-in-hand driver Chester Weber to promote their feed.

Voyager Press is publishing a 2010 box calendar of horses using images she supplied. Included with the calendar is a miniature Breyer horse. Some of the calendar images will also be appearing in a book on breeds of horses Voyager Press is publishing. Darlene believes the calendar will be sold in Tractor Supply Stores and other tack shops, as the John Deere calendar Voyager did for 2009 was sold there.

She also has a cover of a children's book that is in the works.

You can see more of Darlene's work on her website.

Steffen Peters Wins Grand Prix at World Cup

Today history was made when Steffen Peters riding Ravel won the Grand Prix at the Rolex FEI World Cup in Las Vegas. This is the first time an American rider has achieved this goal. He had to beat out two of the most decorated riders in Dressage, Anky Van Grunsven of the Netherlands, and Isabell Werth of Germany. The fans went wild.

The Vision 18 Collective are well represented at World Cup. Marie Cobb, Terri Miller, Mary Cornelius and Susan Sexton are all here shooting the creme de la creme of dressage and show jumping. It's an exciting week for us all. A little birdy told me April Visel is also in Las Vegas shooting Arabians. So more fun to follow!
