June 2015:

Welcome to the world! On June 14 at 12:10 AM – our Imported mare Laura (by Longchamp) delivered her beautiful bay colt sired by Fabregas (Florencio / De Niro). Easy delivery, mare passed placenta within 40 mins of delivery. As usual Laura gave us a lovely colt, very pretty, strong and very straight for a new born, up on his feet with good stability in 40 mins, meconium passed, first pee, nursing on his own… All the check marks in place within two hours. Way to go guys! This colt will be for sale, we hope to see him go to someone who has a desire to show him as a dressage horse as he is bred to do just that!



Update on our 2011 Filly Deshmina who was sired by Danone I out of our beautiful mare Laura.

I am happy to say that our beautiful Deshmina who was born in 2011, sired by Danone I out of our mare Laura (Longchamp) is doing very well with her new owner Caroline in PA, USA.
Caroline kindly sent me these lovely pictures of her on Deshmina at their first dressage show together. I am pleased to say they did fantastic! It was a two day show judged by two licensed USEF “S” dressage judges.

On Saturday, they received 67.5 % in open div. tr…aining level test 3, 65.74 % in open div. first level test 1. On Sunday they received 71.59 % !! in open div. training level test 3 and 63.14 % in open div. first level test 1. To top this all off, there was a few First Place ribbons!

I am so pleased with this partnership of Deshmina and Caroline. As you can see, it is off to a fantastic start. Caroline is bringing Deshmina along very well. Thank you Caroline

On May 2, 2015 – just before midnight, we had the pleasure of delivering the first foal out of our Premium Mare Candidate, Detyana (De Niro / Longchamp).
Detyana delivered a beautiful colt sired by the lovely and talented dressage stallion Bordeaux  (United / Gribaldi / Donnerhall).

This exciting cross of Bordeaux with Detyana (De Niro) should prove to be a top candidate for an FEI quality “future dressage horse”. Although this foal is not ours as we leased Detyana out on an “on farm breeding lease”, we do hope to be able to watch this foal develop as he grows. His owner Andrea who is a fellow breeder in Florida, has high hopes for this foal’s future as do we.

Congratulations Andrea on your lovely Bordeau / De Niro colt who has been named:

“Braveheart P”.

We are very pleased with this colt and the bright future that lays ahead for him.

It was a full day with a tour of the RCMP breeding station in Packenham Ont beginning at 10:00 AM.¬†At 12:30 we had a¬†light lunch which was followed by the meeting and elections for the club proceeded by an¬†awards presentation. To sum it all off, we ended the day with a trip to the RCMP Musical Ride Stables in Ottawa.

August 18 & 19, 2012 –¬†¬†Rob and I travelled to Rigaud Quebec to the Beaulieu Dressage Classic,¬†Gold Level Dressage Show with our lovely Hanoverian gelding Strawinskij ( Wink as we call him around home).

We met up with my coach Susanne Dutt – Roth and the rest of the Rideauwood group who were there competing as well.

We did manage to recieve good enough scores to recieve our horse and rider silver medal awards, through Equine Canada for Third Level.

This was a nice end to the weekend which was quite wet I must say. It rained and rained! Wink took it very well and being 19 years old, he will be retiring from showing. It was a nice way to end our competition season.
