Beauty and Talent in a Petite Package....
This elegant mare with make a talented show ring partner. Imported in foal in 2018, she has now raised a lovely colt, and will be started into work undersaddle again in the fall of 2019. By the popular stallion Finest (goes back to the highly rideable stallion Florestan) and out of a Londonderry/Weltmeyer dam, she crosses some of the top dressage lines into one package. At her breed inspection (presented in hand), she received high walk and trot marks, with the judges complimenting her for her elasticity, rhythm and freedom of gaits. At 16.1 hands, she will make a lovely match for a female rider.

She combines some amazing dressage bloodlines; sired by the late His Highness, known for passing along superior rideability to his foals, and including the ever popular Weltmeyer and Grand Royale on the dam's side. She has been lovely from a foal on, winning Reserve Champion foal at her foal inspection, and carried on years later to be Champion Mare as a three year old at her studbook inspection and Mare Show, including being award the States Premium Candidacy. She completed her Mare Performance test in 2016, with great dressage marks, including 8's for rideability.

While she is young, this  3 year old mare has a super brain and great personality, that are sure to make her a great AA partner, and she is more that easy on the eyes! She is easy to work around and loves her attention, well mannered for farrier and vet. She is just getting started under saddle, but her temperament have made her very easy so far and she is eager to please. Lovely movement to continue on in dressage, but also a lovely jump and has looks to die for, so she could be a fantastic partner for the hunter rings too!

Versatility in a handsome package...

This 2013 Viscount/Escudo gelding has great potential no matter what discipline you'd like to take him in. He has three great gaits, a nice steady and easy contact and great balance to continue to progress in his dressage training. Or, you can use his dressage basics to help further you in the hunter or jumper rings, as this boy also has a big and scopey jump. No matter the discipline, his work ethic will help you go far, and he is also very kind and gentle to handle, and loves his one-on-one time.

Our 2019 foals were a lovely pair of colts, and both were born without an complications, and we were pleased with their growth and development this past summer. A lovely black colt by Don Martillo, out of a Finest mare (left), combines some top dressage lines into a light and refined package, and was an overall 8.3 foal at his inspection. The flashy chestnut with 4 white socks (middle and right), is by the exciting young Verband stallion Finnigan, and out of our proven broodmare Wilma. He looks like he will grow into a bigger horse, but shows lovely light-footed and athletic gaits, and was an overall 8.25 foal, and was called back as reserve champion hunter foal for his lovely gaits and inquisitive, yet confident demeanor in new surroundings at the inspection.
