Fall 2012 Update: TENZIN B

This fall our homebred Tenzin B out of Sophie by Westporte qualified for the prestigious Governor's General Cup and Liutenant General Cup for three year old Canadian bred horses at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

The Royal environment is enough to faze an experienced horse, but Tenzin was as calm as a cucumber!

Here are some photos from the qualifiers at RCRA in September:

He was 7th on the line, and 8th under saddle in a super competitive group of three year olds!

Congrats to his owners Alan and Sue Manning :)

Summer 2012 Update: AURELIUS

Our beautiful homebred gelding Aurelius (La Sophie X Maurice) has been cleaning up this summer with his new owner Cailin Drexler! He has been campaigning in the 3'3" Junior Amateur Division (he is currently standing 2nd in Ontario!) as well as trying his hand at the odd hunter derby.  He was 9th in the Hunter Derby at Cedar Run in July, and was Champion and Reserve Champion in the 3'3" Junior/ Amateur division the past two weeks at Palgrave!

We are very excited about this horses future with his fabulous new rider!

Champion at Palgrave!

Summer 2012 Update: GRANTED

Braeburn purchased Granted from Redfield Farm immediately following the 2011 Royal Winter Fair after seeing his adorable face clean up in the equitation classes as well as the Canadian Hunter Derby.

In 2012 he has been campaigning with Raewyn in the Amateur Owner division, as well as the Canadian Hunter Derby Series with Erynn.

Foal Announcement: A Colt for SOPHIE!

I just realized that this post is WAY overdue, but I am going to post any way!

In April La Sophie had a beautiful, tall and LEGGY colt by Couleur Rubin. This is a full sibling to last years filly India B. We have named him "Belmont" aka "Monty!"

We are loving this cross and will probably repeat it again in 2013 for a 2014 foal :)

New Video: HENLEY B

Henley B is a 2009 gelding by Cabardino and out of Haley (Carthaga). He was lightly backed this past fall, and will begin full work when he is three this spring. He is an angel and has been (like all of our Cabardino babies!) extremely easy to work with.

Check out this video of Henley under saddle this past October:

Hopefully he jumps as well as his mother and father!

In 2007 we were looking to infuse some new blood into our breeding program, and turned to Sherry Smith of Dogwood Sport Horses in Atlanta, Georgia. There we bought Chaviva, a 2007 registered KWPN mare by Voltaire out of Parvita by Riverman.

Chaviva Voltaire
Sire: Voltaire
Damsire: Riverman

Chaviva is tall, scopey, athletic and brave. She is currently in Wellington, Florida until the end of January and has made her jumper debut in the Training Jumper division. We have high hopes for this lady and think that she is a top jumper prospect. Check out this video of Chaviva last week!

Chaviva is for sale and is available to be tried in Wellington until the end of January.
