2011 Sale Grad
(LOUGHEED x LIEBLING)
Owner: Shawna Dunn of Calgary, AB
Bred by: Kathy & Tom Laxton
Breeders Tom and Kathy Laxton expected Leilani to be a successful jumper when she was clearing their 4′ paddock fences prior to her sale. In 2014, Leilani participated in the $15,000 Jump Alberta Western Canadian Young Horse Championships at the Inaugural Royal West Tournament. In each round, horses were awarded a style score and a jumping score that were combined to produce the placings. After the two rounds of competition an overall champion was declared in each of the three age categories. Sixteen horses competed in the five-year-old category but none could beat sale grad Leilani KT and her rider/owner Shawna Dunn. They placed second and first in the individual classes to earn the overall championship title.
