Talented Mare Winning At Training Level

Cinderella is a 16 hand 2011 Thoroughbred mare. She raced in Canada about 4 times and was just much too fancy for that line of work. Her jockey club name was Eirenic. Cinna has beautiful movement on the flat. She is bold on Cross Country, never looks at anything and careful in show jump. She goes all three phases in a loose ring snaffle.

She has placed top 2 in her first 3 training level events this season. Cinna has an excellent brain, nothing seems to phase her. She behaves just as calm and quiet at shows as she does at home. Perfect horse for a YR or AA. She definitely has potential for 1* and would be an excellent candidate for NAJYRC in 2019. No vices, No soundness issues or injuries and no maintenance. Located in South Carolina.

Young OTTB-Ready to move up the levels!

“Step Three” is a 2013, 16 h, OTTB mare by Spanish Steps. Finished 6th in a big Young Event Horse (4 year old) division at Exmoor last Spring, earning excellent scores on her jump and gallop. Won her first beginner novice competition in October, 2017. Recently placed 8th in a very competitive open novice division at Ocala Winter I, finishing on her dressage score (32.9).

Athletic, bold, sharp, and willing young horse. Goes in a happy mouth for all three phases. Correctly started and ready to produce your way. Would also be very competitive in the jumper ring. Located in Florida.

Classy FEI 1* / Intermediate Schoolmaster

Fashion Forward, 2009 Holsteiner Mare, By Carracci II out of Gamine de Jacquet. “Trendy” is a young rider’s dream horse and a parent’s insurance policy. This is truly the most lovely horse to have in the barn and to ride everyday. She is brave, amazingly genuine and straight forward, especially on cross country.

Goes in a snaffle all three phases. Very kind about mistakes and does not hold a grudge. She would be a wonderful teacher, quiet and kind enough that a young child could start off at beginner novice and go all the way up the levels, or a young rider/amateur could get started competing on her right away.

I cannot stress how fun, easy, and kind this mare is to jump. Plenty of scope with a great hind end. With three lovely gaits, the scores will keep improving, easily a 20s horse in another 6 months as she continues to develop her knowledge and strength on the flat. Very trainable and does not have a bad bone in her body. Extremely low maintenance, not marish and gets along well with other horses. Motivated seller but good home is a must. Located in Florida.

STUNNING CCI 1* Bay mare, perfect YR, AA, or PRO

“Maddie” is a fancy, athletic 10 year old, bay Trakehner mare with a deep pedigree. Standing at 16.2 hh she is a powerful jumper and exceptional mover. Madeline is very easy to ride, has a wonderful personality and is very brave. She is currently showing at the CCI 1* level with plenty of scope for more. Blyth’s Madeline GS is a perfect partner for a Young Rider competitor or could be any professional’s horse to proceed up the FEI levels. Her value will increase with development.

Maddie’s sire is Heling of Galten Farms, owned by the Schickedanz family, who were founding members of the American Trakehner Association. Many Galten offspring have become Olympic, World Cup, World Championship, and Pan American games medalists.

The late HELING is one of the top stallions in the Trakehner Verband. He was the # 1 living producer of overall gaits (combined walk/trot/canter) and the # 1 producer of the walk. With an overall score of 142 points for total breed value, he is placed in the top 10 of all of Germany. He is a son of the international 3-Day Event horse BUKEPHALOS, who was fourth at the German national 3-Day Event Championships in 1990, qualifying him for the European Championships held in Burghley, England. Located in Florida.

In September of 2016, Feisty won the Novice division at Bucks County Horse Park Fall H.T.!
