This weekend included a trip to Maryland with Mike Pendleton, for the Fair Hill International Horse Trials. Electra our grey goddess :), took third in her Opening Training-A division. Contaro, has been delivering with his dressage tests, and growing more and more confident in his abilities through his stadium jumping rounds, and cross country. Can’t wait to see what the next year holds for these two!
The organization formerly known as the American Warmblood Society, has been renamed to the American Warmblood Society and Sporthorse Registry. In this change, they have sent us new forms reflecting that our two stallions, Halimey Go *PsE* and Rusticus, have been awarded Elite status.
As always, if you are interested in breeding your mare to one of our stallions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also offer our stallions through the American Trakehner Association Stallion Service Auction, and the American Warmblood Society and Sporthorse Registry Stud Service Auctions, at least once a year. Typically, at a discounted price!

Boyd and Thomas finished LRK3DE on their dressage score of 27.9! Double clear cross country, stadium jumping, taking second place and being the highest placing Americans, they are the National Champions!
Thomas and Boyd had an amazing dressage test on Friday afternoon, securing third place with a 27.9!
We all know cross country day is the most nerve racking, exciting, heart wrenching day. The first three riders on course today, fell off! Even though we were all a little shaken by the initial chaos, Boyd and Thomas ran cross country like machines. They finished at 11:11 within the time and no faults, DOUBLE CLEAR! This put them in SECOND place on their initial dressage score! We are less than one rail away from the current and previous Kentucky champ, Oliver Townend. But, the highest scoring Americans 🙂
Sunday includes the last inspection and stadium begins at 1pm. Stadium jumping will be an edge-of-the-seat experience for sure.
On Cue and Boyd took 1st in their division this weekend. It was Cue’s second 4*!
“Fourth after dressage, Christine Turner’s 12-year-old Anglo-European mare (Cabri D’Elle x On High, Primitive Rising) powered through the jumping phases with one rail down and 12.4 time penalties across country. The final result of 48.6 secured her a fourth international career win.” – Shelby Allen with Eventing Nation
Contaro took first in his Training B division!
We were lucky enough to join in on the Luke 140 Syndication with Boyd, Luke did very well in his Prelim-C Division, ending the weekend with a second place finish.
