Update: Sold to Henderson Farm . Watch for Buckingham in the pony hunter division
2010: Buckingham was shown in dressage at the local Glanbrook Dressage shows and was the reverse champion at his level for the season.
In 2011 Kerrie Norcott showed Buckingham at several sport pony shows and placed right behind his sire Bennos Hit in most classes.
2012: Buckighmam has placed in all his Sport Pony classes and already qualified for the Royal Dressage Suitability under saddle. He has also started to show at the schooling show level over fences.
During th winter of 2012 I have been riding Buckingham regularily with FEI Dressage Coach Cindy Ishoy. The pony has three very good gaits and a lovely trot. A very comfortable pony to ride, extremely supple and forward moving. He loves to jump so would also be suitable as an eventing pony for a junior or smaller adult and a hunter pony for a junior.
Sold Spring 2012
Silverbelle is a grey 13.0 H Welsh Connemara medium pony mare that we acquired from an Ontario Sport Horse breeder in August 2004. We presented her at the September 2004 ASPR inspection we held at the farm and she was approved with a First Premium score of 7.0. Silverbelle is very athletic and loves to jump. We put her through a free jumping grid on a regular basis and she is one of the best pony mares we own over fences.
Silverbelle has had three lovely colts for us. The first foal is Buckingham by Bennos Hit. Buckingham was awarded first premium when he was inspected as a weanling by the ASPR. He has continued to develop into a lovely pony and is available for purchase. (See Ponies for Sale).
Silverbelle’s second and third colt are by Alderdale Nighthawk and are available for purchase:

In February 2012 we had the chance to purchase this wonderful older Holsteiner mare. Galea is by Corrado (by Cor De La Bryere) and out of the mare Bergrose who carries the Landgraf and Ladykiller lines. Galea has two approved sons for breeding with the Holstein Society standing in the USA and 4 foals that have been sucessful in the Canadian Jumper Development series.
We were excited about acquiring Farnley Jessica in the fall 2004. Keth Murray of Kemur Farm in Cambridge helped us find this Farnley mare which we plan to breed to Bennos Hit. Jessica is a dark chestnut mare 13.2H that was originally acquired from the Farnely Farm auction sale in 1999. She is by TF Count Bisbee out of Farnley Christie.
TF Count Bisbee is the sire of several top hunter ponies in the United States. Mrs J. Dunning’s Farnley Farm in Virginia had for numerous years produced outstanding hunter and breeding ponies and several sires on the 2002 and 2003 USEF site for pony hunter and jumper leading sires lists are Farnley bred or from off spring of Mrs Dunning’s breeding program.
We have a great gelding from Jessica by Bennos Hit – Bennos Barclay (See Ponies for Sale).

Sold to Sandy Noseworthy
2010 Registered Half Welsh dark brown colt by Alderdale Nighthawk out of Northwind Just Imagine. His dam Northwind Just Image was a successful hunter pony and then produced some lovely ponies for Prue Richardson’s Northwind Farm.
Perry will mature a medium sized pony and has one of the most beautiful heads with the large welsh eye that I have ever seen. Perry has real star quality and looks like a miniature Throughhbred with an outstanding walk and great canter along with a friendly personality. He should be a very successful pony in the hunter pony ring.
We acquired Rosie in November 2006 to ride and drive. In 2007 Rosie was broke to drive and we used her for hacking etc.
Update: In 2010 Rosie placed at local carriage events and was the Grand Champion at the May Tri County Show at Rockton Fair grounds. We had planned to show her at more shows in 2010, especially Walnut Hill as she loved cones and was very fast for cross country. However, in June 2010 Rosie suffered from a stroke and we had to make the tough decision to put her down. Rosie had turned out to be a wonderful driving pony who loved her job and Bob and I have great memories of the time we had with her.

“Sophie” is a lovely dark bay CSHA mare born in 1992 and is 16.2H. She is by the outstanding Trakehner stallion Kronjuwel II, who ridden by Ashley Holzer, represented Canada at the Pan Am Games in Cuba. Kronjuwel and Ashley won the dressage silver individual medal and also were team gold winners. Safari’s dam is Vivare, a foundation CSHA mare. Vivare was third in the prestigious Governor General Cup for three year olds at the Royal Winter Fair. Vivare was also the dam of Pebbles who won the Governor General Cup and then went on to become a successful confirmation hunter in the USA.
Safari has given us several great offsprings, who have gone to new homes – Meritage and Macallan. She is presently in foal to our German Sport Pony and we are excited about this breeding. She presented us with an outstanding pony colt by Zeus in 2005 which we sold as a hunter pony. With her size and confirmation, Sophie was always been successful when shown in breed line classes and has earned several championships over the years between foals. We wish Jane great success in her new venture.
In 2011, Jane Nelligan won the two year old CSHS colt/ gelding class at the Royal Winter Fair with a foal of Safari’s – Frankly Fabulous. Congrats Jane
Dancing Till Dawn
We acquired “Polly” in January 2004 from Dancing Lawn Farm and she was in foal to a large pony cremello stallion. She is a 13.3 hand bay mare who has been inspected by the ASPR and earned a First Premium rating of 7.0. At the time we purchased her she was heavy in foal but that didn’t stop her from jumping our four foot gates on numerous occasions to meet Bob at the barn when he got home from work. After jumping the gate she would wait patiently at the barn doors until he arrived. She has since settled into the farm’s routine and is a prefect companion for an older retired standardbred mare.
In April 2004 she presented us with a lovely dun filly “Buckwheat Honey” who was also inspected and approved with the ASPR with a First Premium score of 7.1.
In June 2005 she presented us with a great colt by our stallion Bennos Hit. We presented him for inspection in September with the ASPR. He received an outstanding mark of 7.9. Bennington is presently the 2005 top scoring foal in Canada for the ASPR foal futurity and this score also tied him for the second top score in the USA
Polly is currently in foal to Alderdale Nighthawk and we are looking forward to seeing the foal. (Polly got her barn name because she loves soda crackers).
“Rosco” is a 13.3 H American registered Part Welsh pony gelding born in March 1997. Rosco is by the USEF leading pony hunter and jumper stallion Cymraeg Rain Beau out of a welsh cross bred pony. Cymraeg Rain Beau’s sire was the famed Farnley Lustre who is found in the pedigree of many top hunter and breeding ponies.
Rosco is an excellent combined driving pony who also does extremely well in pleasure driving too due to his photogenic appearance. He has won for us in pleasure driving and hasn’t been defeated at any Tri Count events in the past two years. In 2005 he was Pony Champion at East Aurora Pleasure Driving Show and the Gaits at Caledon. He won the carriage racing derby at Sutton Fair and was third in the combined driving events in Bromont and Upper Canada.
Rosco was also broken to ride and is a great pony jumping thru the grid. We don’t have anyone one small enough to ride him. His full sister showed at the Pony Finals in the USA. Rosco would not be for sale if he was a mare due to his breeding.
SOLD to Jane Nelligan
Honey (born April 2004) is an approved ASPR filly who earned a First Premium status with a score of 7.1. Honey is a lovely foal with beautiful movement and an excellent disposition. She will make a lovely hunter pony or a very flashy driving pony.

Meritage is an outstanding gelding standing 16.2 and born in 2002. Mikey has been broken to ride and is extremely easy to train due to an outstanding personality and athleticism. He was a wonderful walk, huge trot and great canter. He was shown as a foal and was second in his class at the Royal Winter Fair in a class of 13 foals. Since then he has been lightly shown on the line due to time constraints but he always earns a ribbon.
Update: In 2009 and 2010 Meritage and Cora Lee had two great seasons showing dressage . In 2010 Meritage was the Level One Amateur Champion at the August Palgrave Gold Show
SOLD to Linda and Keith Reavely, Encore Farm

He also has a wonderful walk, huge trot and great canter. In fact, he is a full brother to Meritage. Both horses have been very easy to train. Mack will be very suitable for dressage or driving.
Update: Michelle Reavely and Mack have had two very successful seasons showing dressage on the silver and gold circuits.
Our former stallion Nederburg is a 16.1 H Oldenburg that we imported unbroken as a two year old in 1998. He was approved the following year as a CSHA stallion and obtained his bronze status in dressage. He threw great bone and wonderful personalities into his foals and stamped them with his lovely head.
“Ned” has spent two years in training with Jon Costin as an advanced level dressage horse. Due to work constraints it was decided to geld him and Bob broke him to drive. Ned has taken to this discipline admirably and Jane showed Ned in pleasure driving and combined driving events in 2006. In 2008 Ned won his first combined event and placed well in the pleasure driving shows.
We still get inquiries about breeding to Ned and have helped customers obtain foals from owners who bred mares to him in previous years.
SOLD to Dieter Werner, Fox Horse Products

His dam Encore is a lovely grey 17.1 mare out of Vivare and by an Abdullah son. He also was born in 2002 and should mature about 16.3 H. Joey would excel with a new owner interested in showing in the hunter division as he has the most wonderful balanced canter. He was in training with Dieter Werner when Dieter asked if he could purchase him.
