Qastalia (formerly Dail) is a 1997 mare by Donius W. from the thoroughbred mare Curiosity Marks. Qastalia is a full sister to Guinness and Winston, and a half sister to the thoroughbred mare Lucky Effort who is the dam of Zavanna.

Jennifer's update:
Last year, I began training with Allyson Rogers. Under her instruction, Qastalia (Leah) has really begun to progress in dressage. She has a natural talent for dressage combined with a willing attitude, making her an ideal dressage partner. Leah's temperment is wonderful and she has a genuine love for being around people. We are showing successfully at first and second levels this year and attending many clinics. According to my trainer, Leah is the perfect horse for me. In addition to riding and competing in dressage, Leah also loves to hack out through the countryside for a leisurely ride. She is a pleasure to ride and work with and I look forward to a very long and successful partnership with her.

Leah will be competing this year at third level. We are currently schooling third and fourth level with FEI trainer, Allyson Rogers in Arlington, TN. Leah is progressing very rapidly and shows a natural talent for collection. She already displays glimpses of a gorgeous passage!  Despite the physical and mental demands of working at the upper levels, she is very willing and has a great work ethic. She has a natural desire to please and is wonderful to train and ride.
