In memory of Ardiane, a registered Trakehner mare.

 July 19, 1990 - April 9, 2013


Ardriane was the first foal born at Dogwood Trace Trakehners.

 Ardriane  was by Onassis *E* and out of Ariaba, by Abdullah *Pg*E* (pedigree below).


Her first career was as a dressage mount, at which she was quite successful.

She had excellent gaits with a very elevated trot, and excelled in the show ring

At age four she was the Jr/YR Training Level year end champion.

She was first in all her classes, and won Jr./YR High Point champion at three shows.

Most of her scores were 65 or above, and her highest was 68.85

She was also briefly used as a therapy mount for the Reinbow Riders therapeutic riding program.

 Ardriane's second career was as a broodmare; she had two foals - a filly and a colt

Ardriane's son, Azariah (aka Azzie), a 2005 gelding by Khalif *Pb*, inherited his mother's athletism and nice gaits (pictured above as a foal)

Azzie and owner Laura Murray are doing very well in the dressage and eventing arenas and helping promote the Trakehner breed in Texas For more information about him, click here.

Azzie will carry on Ardriane's legacy in the show ring
