MB MaiStein

(Owned by MB Group LLC Syndicate)

 2013 Oldenburg Geldingmaistein

MB MaiStein is a newer arrival to Next Level Eventing, from the barn of Kai-Steffen Meier in Gesves, Belgium. MaiStein is by the Westfalian stallion Rocky Lee, a successful dressage horse at PSG/Inter I level with Ramiro Z bloodlines, and out of a full Thoroughbred mare by Heraldik XX (one of the best eventing sires in the world). With over 50% direct Thoroughbred blood in his first 4 generations, MaiStein has all of the right ingredients to become an eventing superstar. Tamie plans to allow MaiStein to grow and develop into a 4-year-old in 2017, at which point his training will commence and initial competition at the lower levels will be possible. In July 2017, MB MaiStein won the Young Event Horse 4-Year-Old division at Rebecca Farm.

Dempsey was a Dutch Gelding who was originally bred to be a world-class dressage horse. Dempsey wowed everyone at NLE with his magnificent movement, but when Tamie saw him jump she knew he would make an incredible event horse.

On June 13, 2017, Tamra Smith, in conjunction with The West Coast Dempsey Syndicate LLC, regretfully announce that the nine year old Dutch Gelding “Dempsey” was humanely euthanized due to unexpected postoperative complications while in recovery at the University of Montreal Veterinary Hospital.
