Schroeder Update
Schroeder (Sandro Hit x Escudo I) Photo by Carole MacDonald
Thanks to rider Mary Bahniuk-Lauritsen for her training with Schroeder over the past year.  Mary is staying in Florida year around, so Schroeder has come home.  She has stepped him into performing Intermediare I and we appreciate her fantastic training.  They were a smash at the Global Dressage Forum NA in FL!  Watch for him on

Schroeder is now riding with Liz Caron at Carbery Fields Farm in Lebanon, CT.  Liz is an accomplished talented FEI rider.  She has been training our young horses and thrilled with the results.  Look for Liz and Schroeder in the FEI ring this year!  We are very exited for a fantastic year!


Frozen from Holland - 2 New Stallions
Empire (Lord Calando x Ahorn Z)
Our tanks are on the way to VDL to stock up some more fantastic stallions.  We have 2 new stallions to offer this year.  Empire VDL by Lord Calando

Empire comes from the Holsteiner line 2543, who also have brought the international jumpers and approved stallions Lux, Loreana, and Lasino. The international 1.50 m level jumper Heechhiem's Colanda also comes out of Empire's mother. Striking is the linebred on the Holsteiner Lord. We also find Nimmerdor, Ladykiller xx [2x], Calando I, Cottage Son [3x], Cor de la Bryere, Alme, Lucky Boy xx and Ramzes x. Empire's performances are constantly good, at the age of 3 he was 2nd in jumping at the Stallion Test in Munster Handorf. He received a 9 and a 9.5 for jumping. As a 4 year old stallion he became the Dutch Champion of the 4 year old jumpers. In this championship, he was the only horse who received a 9 for jumping. In 2004 and 2005 he won the Stallion Competition in Goes and was 3rd in total ranking. In 2005 he was 2nd in the finals of the Twente Cup and in the trials of Almelo. Empire was 2nd in the Stallion Competition of 2005/2006 and in 2006 he became Swedish Champion of the 7-years old jumpers. He also won a qualification class at the World championships for 7-years old jumpers. Empire wins and is high placed in 1.40 m classes, he also already made his debut in the 1.50m classes and did this with a victory. Empire's first foals move with a lot of looseness and gallop very easily.



Freeman VDL
Freeman VDL (Emmerton x Chin Chin)


Freeman VDL is new for our breeders in American and WOW, champion of the stallion testing!  His beautiful type, his pedigree and his abilities as a jumper clinched the voting.


Freeman has a captivating pedigree. Sire is the Emilion son, VDL Emmerton, who descends from the famous Sina-line. Ridden by Jur Vrieling, Emmerton was the Dutch Champion in 2008 and achieved numerous high placings at the international levels: 2nd in the GP Eindhoven, 3rd in the GP Geesteren and 4th in the GP Stockholm.  Maternal grand sire is the two time Olympic stallion, the famous Chin Chin, sire of Sancha la Silla, Qerly Chin and Tabelle van Sombeke. Continuing in the dam line is the Preferent stallion Ahorn, who sired top jumpers like High Valley Z and Ursula XII. Freeman's dam is the keur mare Be Helena VDL who, as a 3 year old, placed 4th at the National Mare Show and scored 80 points for her IBOP. Her full sister is the Dutch Free Jumping Champion Welena VDL the mother of the future top horse Celena VDL. Freeman's grand dam is the famous Ahorn-daughter Helena - European Champion in 1992. Helena carries the predicates 'Keur, Preferent and Prestatie' from her children Southwind VDL (Grand Prix show jumper) and of the international jumpers Pan Am VDL and Onatello VDL. Great grandmother is the 'Preferent and Prestatie' mare Azemieka, who is known as one of the best Dutch broodmares ever. Among her offspring are the international jumping and approved stallions Everest, Glennridge and Arkansas as well as the international jumpers Lely, North Gammon and Jezetro.
Freeman passed his KWPN Stallion testing with good scores. He received a total score of 78 points with an 8 for technique and an 8.5 for scope. The combination of the Sina and Azemieka line in his pedigree, together with his handsome exterior, his gaits and his convincing way of jumping gives Freeman great promise for the future.

If your interested in any of these stallions or the huge line up of stallions we stock for VDL Stud, let me know so that we can have enough stocked for the year.  All stallions come with our limited guarantee and fresh backup with the Majestic Gaits stallion Schroeder, Dante MG and Navarone.
Breeding season is underway. 2014 promised to be a good year of the Horse.  Farrington has retired and enjoying his mare and foal friends at home.  Dante MG and Navarone are at Clarion Farm in Franklin, MA with Carly Fisher with collection facilities being set up there so they can stay in work and compete.  Thanks to the generous donations from Dr. Anne Schmidt!  Schroeder is at Carbery Fields Farm in Lebanon CT with collection facilities 10 minutes away.  I'll be coordinating everything from Majestic Gaits and shipping out the frozen and focusing on breeding our mares and foaling out the 5 mares in foal.  Wishing everyone a good season and looking forward to making your foal dreams come true!
