RADIANCE ELIZA BABE
(Windy Hill Maestro X Seven C Copper
1984 liver chestnut mare, 15.3 3/4
Liza was a big, extremely sweet girl, standing a hair under sixteen hands, which is large for a Morgan. Her
appearance at local dressage shows
tended to quiet those critics of Morgans who felt they were too small.
Her winning at these same shows sent some of them in search of their
own Morgan to use for dressage!

Liza was sold to Kathy Freise and Mark Atkinson of Beaverdam, VA
in 2002. She helped them learn to ride
dressage as well as being a trusted family mount. Her only foal, the incredible mover April Meridian
(by Turfwood Royal Flush), is now owned by Mythic Morgans in Boyds MD.
Sadly, Kathy and Mark lost Liza to colic on November 22, 2010 at
age 26. She was much loved and will be missed.

Liza and her new owner Kathy Freise in an Introductory Level dressage test at the 2003 Old Dominion Morgan show. This was Kathy's first time showing in dressage and she placed fifth
in a good sized class- not bad for a first outing- and on a 19 year old horse!
The August 2010 issue of THE MORGAN HORSE magazine carried a story about Kathy's Father-in-Law, Ted Atkinson, and Liza. From talking to Kathy,
I had known Ted was a jockey but I had no idea how famous he was
until I read this touching story.
