As we prepare for a new year we reflect on 2020. What a year. While 2020 certainly was full of challenges and we all have to make adjustments we were not prepared for, happily we had many joyful moments.

David lead his beautiful mare Beijings Lovesong BHF to multiple halter wins, championships and a Regional Top 5.

David and Smooth Jazzz continued their winning ways in halter and were awarded 2 Regional Reserve Championships.Smooth Jazzz ended his performance year with a bang doing a fair amount of winning in hunter pleasure, ladies side saddle, western pleasure and dressage. He garnered some fantastic year end awards too!

Smooth Jazzz was sold to Barbara Batson of Carousel Farm and will continue his show career under her expertise. We are delighted that he got such an amazing home.

We welcomed a lovely half Arabian colt sired by Diplomatic Immunity and out of lovely Haflinger mare L’Nadia. This fancy sport horse prospect named Diplomatic Attaché was sold to Melissa Davis and will be showing with her in the future. We are so pleased to have been a part of this union.

We welcomed a gorgeous purebred Haflinger filly by Niagara YES and out of lease mare Laura WOF. Both the filly and Laura were sold to the Smith/Gallagher family and we are so pleased they got such an amazing home.

Our junior horse Bronze Medallion C (Hiro-T x Luv Struck LR) made his performance debut with trainer Holly Armstrong and he trotted his way joyfully into two blue ribbons! Thank you Holly for your wonderful work with him. Happily he was sold to the Postma family and is now on the path to being a dressage super star. We could not have hand picked a more perfect person for him that his new person Lucy!

L’Nadia (Notting Hill x Loretta TOF) has found her perfect home with the Johnson family. She is well loved and enjoyed by the entire family.

We are thrilled to have been involved in helping literally dozens of mares get in foal for the 2021 season and we can’t wait to see all those foals in the coming year.
Our own mare MA Lucky Star (I Got Lucky x Cattitude) took this year off from showing and was bred to multi national champion Coltrane SS and is due to foal in May 2021.

Our new mare Zsa Zsa Gabor EA (Montana Firenze x WWA Hilary) was bred to DHH Graaf Kelly and is due to foal in March 2021.

Our new mare Alyssa BA (PS Andiamo x Alluring Chance) presented us with a gorgeous filly by Beijing son Grand Commandd. Alyssa is now in training and will start her performance career in 2021. We have retained her filly and will be showing her in halter in 2021.

We have spent the better part of this past year doing post surgery care and rehab on several horses. Happily they all recovered well and are being ridden and shown once again. Thank you to the owners who trusted us with their horses. It was a very educational and rewarding experience for us.

Donna suffered a femur fracture in April 2019. The fracture did not heal and it was necessary to have the femur removed and replaced with a prosthetic femur in October 2019. Due to this, we have slowed down considerably on Stallion services. Donna still has some disability. Though she is back to riding (western horses), she still has limitations.
