Royal Results

The Royal Winter Fair went incredibly well for Braeburn Farms! Katavi our 3 year old homebred mare by Cabardino and out of Leda by Lacros was 7th in the Governor's General Cup (on the line) and 2nd in the Lieutenant Governor's Cup (under saddle).

Ava by Voltaire was also Champion in the 18 - 35 Adult Amateur division! Ava will be retired in 2012 and will be bred for a 2013 baby :)

Tenzin B

At two years old our babies begin light work with tack, and are introduced to the jumping chute. Our 2009 gelding Tenzin B (Westporte X Lacros) came into his own this summer and really seemed to enjoy the break from the ordinary. Check out this video of Tenzin free jumping: 

I really love the stallion Westporte from Country Lane Warmbloods as he stamps his young with incredible movement as well as expressive, wide faces with large, charismatic eyes. His foals have also been doing exceptionally well on the line this year, winning everywhere from IHF finals to the Devon Horse show. I am thinking about using him for our mare Vienna next year.  

Our lovely boy Tenzin was sold the the Manning family this past summer. These are some photos that we took of him before he left:

Braeburn Summer 2011

Canadian summers are fleeting, and as we brace for the cold up here in Canada, we thought that we might reflect on our amazing 2011 show season. It was a great one with many of our young horses making their show debuts here in Canada and the Northeastern United States.

Our homebred Sera (Escudo I X Lacros) had a very consistent year in the 7/8 year old Jumper Development Series. She won a class at Devon, was 2nd in a $10, 000 Modified Grand Prix, and was recently Reserve Champion in the Canadian National 7/8 year old Young Horse Development Series Final. She also finished as the top Canadian horse bred in the series! Read the press release HERE.

PC: Mackenzie Clark
Fergie (Quite Hopeful X Landfriesse) was fantastic in the High Pre Greens this summer, was reserve champion overall in Ontario and was champion one week in Kentucky. While in Kentucky she even completed her first Hunter Derby. Check out the video below!

Our four year old Chaviva (Voltaire X Riverman) had her jumper debut this summer in the 0.8 m. jumper division at Palgrave. She was fantastic, and we are very excited to bring her out to the 5 year old classes next summer!

All in all it was a good year for Braeburn. We are now gearing up for the Royal Winter Fair, and then (finally) the Wellington Equestrian Festival in Florida!

As always please check out our website for news, updates and sales.

KATAVI January 2011

Check out this recent video of Katavi taken January, 2011. Katavi was born in 2008 so she is turning three this spring. She is out of Sophie and by Cabardino.

She is now w/t/c on the lunge and has started learning about side reins.  She was backed lightly this past fall and will start real work with a rider this summer. Kat was recently measured and she has hit the 16.0 h. mark!

Braeburn Foals 2011

We are expecting two foals this year and are extremely excited about both of them!

Sophie is in foal to Couleur Rubin, a cross that we believe will produce an exceptional jumper foal. I love Couleur Rubin - he is extremely sporty and athletic, has tons of scope and big, beautiful movement. Sophie consistently produces beautiful, well moving and athletic babies. We have really high hopes for this cross which will most likely be repeated for 2012. Sophie is due at the end of April so stay tuned for our foal announcements!

                                                                     Couleur Rubin:

Vienna is in foal to Redwine and is due in May. This is her first foal and we cannot wait to see what she produces. Redwine is a stallion based out of Gray Fox Farms in California that we just love. He only has a few foal crops in the ground in North America but he is consistently throwing beautiful hunter type foals with very correct conformation and beautiful heads.


Check back in the following months for updates on our babies!
