Emily Miles, who competed her Wakeup, bred in the American Midwest, at the World Young Horse Championships a decade ago, will ride two five-year-olds in the championships at Ermelo, Netherlands in August.
Emily has qualified two German-bred stallions for the championships:
—Daily Show, Hanoverian (Danciano x Stockholm), that qualified with an average score of 85.033%, and
—Sole Mio, Rhinelander (Stanford x Donnerschwee) with an average of 82.733%.
Both horses are owned by Leslie Waterman of Franklin, Tennessee, who also has several other horses being trained and competed by Emily, 31, at her family’s Wally Woo Farm in La Cygne, Kansas. She works with the California-based David Wightman.
The three competitions to qualify for Ermelo were national shows in the Midwest.
Wakeup became what Emily has described as a “poster child–born in Kansas, bred in Kansas, raised in Kansas.”
The horse competed in the 2010 world championships in Germany, was U.S. six-year-old champion in 2011 and went on to take the developing Prix St. Georges national title in 2013 and the developing Grand Prix horse title in 2014.
Wakeup, however, was injured shortly after and did not return to the CDI competition arena until early this year.
