The mare also earend championship honors in the USEF Region 15 Half Arabian and Half/Anglo Arabian Dressage FEI Combined Level. In addition, she was the 2020 East Coast PSG Champion, I-1 Open Champion and High Score FEI Horse winner.

Elizabeth Dinich rode her own EAF Kidmann +/ to win the USEF Region 15 Arabian Dressage Fourth Level Championship. The pair also earned the Reserve Championship for Arabian Dressage Amateur Third Level and Arabian Dressage Third Level.
