This weekend was something else! Boyd took 1st the CCI3*, CIC3* and CCI2* at the Jersey Fresh International. Two of those firsts happened to be our mares in their own 2* and 3* debuts! On Cue in the CCI2* and KYRA in the CIC3*!
We have donated one breeding to each of our stallions, Halimey Go *Ps* and Rusticus, to the Stallion Service Auction hosted by the American Trakehner Association. This is a great chance to breed to some top stallions at a fraction of the cost to you!

We wish everyone a wonderful Holiday season & a Merry Christmas! As most of you know, south Texas was surprised by snowfall. We took this opportunity to throw some bows and a little mistletoe on our boy, Prinz Von der Ahe “Prinz”. We have been dressing him up since he was born, we think he likes it 🙂
Thomas started 12th after dressage, 5th after Cross Country, ending with a clean show jumping round ultimately taking 3rd place! Tsetserleg *Pg* (Thomas) was named by USEF (United States Equestrian Federation) Reserve Champion for the National CCI3* 2017 Eventing Championship! He may be small- but he is mighty!
“In 2012, the USEA Young Event Horse Program (YEH) introduced the Holekamp/Turner Young Event Horse Le Lion d’Angers Prize and Grant to encourage the development of future U.S. team horses in eventing by providing them with increased international exposure and opportunity as young horses. This grant, funded by Dr. Timothy and Cheryl Holekamp and Christine Turner, is awarded to the highest scoring horse from the USEA Young Event Horse 5-year-old East and West Championships combined that is qualified as a 7-year-old and willing to compete in the FEI World Breeding Eventing Championships for Young Horses. In the interest in promoting domestic breeding, North American-bred winners of the Grant are awarded with a cash prize of $17,500 to offset the expenses of traveling to Le Lion d’Angers in France for the Championships, while imported horses are awarded $8,000.”
Thank you to all who participate in the Young Event Horse program!
