Ms. Gia (Art Deco x Good Lookin Jesse) Ducth/TB, is a large mare with a gentle soul. Gia does everything with a "Yes Ma'am" additude. She has competed sucessfully at Novice eventing, is schooling 2nd level dressage, occasionally pops over 4ft fences, and is the perfect first flight Foxhunter, plus she gives pony rides to the kids and teaches a few lessons. What more can you ask for from a horse?
Rubichez (Rubignon x Lacey) 2012 Gold Premium RPSI gelding. Fluid, full body mover, with a very mature mind. Roo is a special guy. Having competed in the Future Event Horse Series he has explored the horse show world at a young age and will continue to do so in preperation for his sport horse career. Roo was Champion of the inaugral 2015 free jump USEA FEH class, and came in 4th place in the 3yr old colt in hand class. Fabulous all around horse. Foxhunting, Hunters, Dressage, and natural horsemanship.
Ribbons & Lace (aka Roxette) Riverman x (Lacey) Art Deco filly born at 10pm May 16 2015. Absolutely stunning girl. This is Lacey's first filly out of 4 foals, and its a "mini Lacey". Couldn't be happier with her! Site Champion Foal and Gold Premium at her RPSI inspection. Tied for 1st place nationally in the 2015 RPSI filly inspection scores.
Lacey (Art Deco x Eutaw's Favor) Dutch/TB, is an amazing athlete and mother to three of my fantastic youngsters. She is shown competing in the 6-bar at Upperville jumping a 5'6 fence. Jumping is easy for her and she is wonderful mover. She also is the Dam to Sorcery who was a homozygous stallion standing in New Zealand. He has been gelded (with frozen available) so as to pursue a competition career and returned to KY in 2015
All Star Secret (Class Secret x All A Schimmer) Trakhner/TB, is a retired Advanced level event horse. I started him as a 4 year old and we ended up placing 10th in our first CCI* at Morven and 8th at the Radnor CCI** in 2005. We competed at the advanced level until I started a family of my own and stopped my heavy competition schedule. He is sweet yet quirky and a wonderful mentor to the youngsters he is turned out with.
Update: Secret has retired to a local friend's farm where he will dabble in dressage and trail rides, while being treated like a king. He is one happy boy!
Nabiola- (Inspekteur x Fabiola) imported KWPN. Black dressage type mare in foal to Freestyle for 2014 foal. Kind, sensitive mare who is head mare in the broodmare herd.
Nina left for her new home at Free Spirit Friesians, Wellington FL, this evening. I'm sad to see her go as once you experience birth with a mare, it connects you. But it is a wonderful new home for her and they plan on breeding her so she will continue to have beautiful foals!!
August 15 2015- Lacey's newest filly Ribbons & Lace (aka Roxette) was amazing at her RPSI inspection, winning Site Champion Foal and Gold Premium with a score of 8.6! Lacey has a huge trot but Roxette was passing her in trot that just floated across the ground. Plus Roxette is sweet, kind, and has a wonderful sense to her. Love this girl!
May 16 2015 Lacey had her baby and it's a girl! Beautiful markings, this girl is vibrant and well put together. I wouldn't change a thing about her. Labor went great, although Lacey tried to sneak out to pasture to have her baby and I caught her just before her water broke. We will name her soon.<

Faith and Juliet both got 6th place over all at the Redgate Farm Horse Show Year End Awards banquet. It was a wonderful time and the girls felt very proud. Plus they got a great goodie bag and a big ribbon!

Rubichez competed at the USEA FEH East Coast Championships. He placed 4th in the 2yr old Colt division and was very well behaved. I will most likely be heading him towards the jumper or dressage ring in the future but the FEH program is wonderful to get the young ones out and used to the show atmosphere.

Juliet and Faith Burns rode in the Lead Line division at the Philomont Horse Show. Faith placed 2nd, and at Juliet's first show she placed second and third, but the lollipop was the most appreciated prize! Twinkles was a star too!

Freestyle x Nabiola Filly is Here!
Nabiola had a black filly by Freestyle at 1:40AM Friday morning! She has two hind socks, a large star, and a super sweet disposition. The labor went smoothly and Nabiola is a wonderful, attentive mother. The filly loves racing back and forth in her pasture, until she plops down for a rest with her mama standing guard. The other broodmares, who will have foals next spring, look jealous:)
