Royal Bound

Katavi, our 3 year old homebred mare by Cabardino out of Leda by Lacros, has qualified for the Lieutenant General Cup and the Governors General Cup at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, Ontario.

Check out some photos of Kat and her amazing handler/ rider Shawn Ferguson from the qualifiers:

Ava (by Voltaire) will also be joining Katavi at the Royal Winter Fair competing in the Adult Amateur 18-35 division with Raewyn. 

We are looking forward to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair held this November 4th - 13th 2011 in Toronto, Ontario.

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:
