Raymeister is easy to train, ride and show, even for an amateur, yet he’s athletic enough for the professional to go all the way. According to Helmut Schrant, Grand Prix rider and Training Director of the 2002 Stallion Performance Test, "Ray could be a Grand Prix dressage horse or a Grand Prix jumper. I could easily see him go either way. He is very versatile."

Foals:  Ray's first foal, Rashka, is 2004 USDF Weanling Colt Reserve Horse of the Year. His filly, Rising Star, won 2nd at the Regional Championship show. Of the five foals in Ray's first crop, three are premium (the 2 colts were recommended for stallion prospects!), and the other two scored 7.9. Ray's 2005 premium filly, Rehlein, out of Chloe by Opus, won the Fillies of 2005 Championship, Regional Young Horse Championship, and was the East Central Cosequin/USDF Breeders Series Grand Champion Filly.
