Debutante excelled in her new career and took Shanna to two North American Young Rider Championships, placing 18th in 1999 and 9th in 2001. She was twice long-listed to the Canadian Equestrian Team and earned at least a dozen championship titles. Debutante’s favourite was freestyle, she loved to move to music, and she did her part in promoting the sport of dressage and the Anglo-Arab breed by giving freestyle demonstrations for Young Riders and for the Arabian Horse Association.


In 2005, Debutante competed for the last time at the Intermediare II level and was then retired from competition. Her semi-retirement included a stint as a school horse for a junior rider and many more hours of enjoyment for Shanna, who continued to ride her five times per week at Trakehner Glen where Shanna has been assistant trainer for the past six years. Debutante was a barn favourite, always a friendly face, which earned her bunches of her favourite treat…bananas. She passed away in June of 2007 but will live on in the heart of a girl who found an amazing partner with whom to pursue her greatest passion.
