R Star, Bay Irish Thoroughbred Mare, 2006

Owned by Courtney Cooper & Neal Camens

Our third oldest homebred, R Star (Hope) moved up to Intermediate at the end of 2013.  Prior to that she competed successfully at Preliminary, including finishing 1st of 56 horses at the Plantation Field CIC 1* and winning 3 other horse trials in 2013.

She began her eventing career in February 2011 in Aiken, SC. She spent the rest of the year competing through Training with Courtney and at Beginner Novice with Neal. She placed 4th in the East Coast Young Event Horse Championships in October 2011.

She was backed and ridden briefly as a 2-year old, and then ridden again for a few weeks as a 3-year old. In 2010 she gave birth to Count R Lucky Stars (Grace), a filly by Holsteiner, Linaro.

Heavenly Star (Faith) gave birth to R Star (Hope) on Monday, July 31, 2006. Hope was sired by R. Johnson, a Dutch Warmblood whose sire, G. Ramiro Z, has produced many successful horses including show jumper Ratina Z, gold medalist in the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games.
