TWinkle toes: the one who started it all.
First Advanced horse, NAYC CCI***-L Gold Medal, First FEI Win(2005 Jersey Fresh CCI***-L), USDF Bronze Medal, First experience in 1.30m jumpers......and went on to teach many of my students how to ride. He was truly one of the best horses ever.
Found him as a show hunter, took him up through Prelim and then finances forced his sale. He continued on to compete at multiple CCI***** events all over the world.
AKA The Black Stallion...came to me as a horse to produce through the levels. He competed up through Preliminary Eventing and made many fans along the way who loved to watch this 14.3h powerhouse pony. He was a blast but he also introduced me to Kathy St Martin and Jos Mottershead, owners of Avalon Equine, who have continued to be close friends.
A true stamp of an Irish horse, Saint was one of two horses I competed for Pam Coffin. He went through Prelim before going on to his next owner.
Vivian was a horse I competed for owner, Barb Werback. Viv was a homebred of Barb's who decided jumping as a little more fun than dressage, which was not Barb's sport of choice! Viv competed through Prelim before going on to be a jumper for some junior riders.
Smarty is one of my all time favorite horses. Bought from a friend in Texas to be a lesson horse, Smarty had grander ideas of for his career. He competed through the CCI**-L level before being sold to a student.
One of the first horses I bought with owners, Mission was purchased to go up the levels. Unfortunately his body had different plans and he competed through Training level before retiring to be loved on by little girls in a field.
Purchased by the Team Junior Syndicate, Carl competed through Prelim before being sold to an amateur rider n Canada. His sale made possible the purchase of Harbin and for that we are thankful!
Benny was purchased by the Team Junior Syndicate and sourced by Janet Von Pressentin. He competed through Training level before being sold. His sale will help to fund the other Team Junior Syndicate horses through the rest of their show season.
