Gryffindor EMP "Gryffindor"

Price: $6,500
Level: Prospect
Sire: Goldmaker
Dam: Estefania (x Edelweiss de Bonce) 
2015 15.2hh RPSI Palomino Stallion

Gryffindor is an absolutely stunning colt (can be gelded if buyer wishes) with good movement and correct conformation. He is  extremely brave and inquisitive and we feel he would be exceptionally suited to an Eventing home. He has been lightly started under saddle and was as easy as they come. Owner is only selling due to a change of direction in her program.  

His sire, Goldmaker, passed his 70 Day Stallion Test with exceptional scores. This outstanding stallion proved himself against warmbloods and did extremely well. One of only a handful of Thoroughbreds to have successfully completed a stallion performance test and the ONLY cremello TB fully licensed and approved by an FN warmblood registry!

His dam, Estefania, was premium and site champion foal at her Oldenburg inspection. Approved MMB RPSI as a 3 year old. Estefani's sire Edelweiss de Bonce Competed through Grand Prix Dressage under Catherine Haddad. Edelweiss continued his Dressage career being successfully competed under Mette Rosencrantz at PSG and Intermediare I. Edelweiss was fully licensed and approved with multiple registries through performance results. Estefania's dam Rockette is by Riverman son, approved stallion Reno. Reno was the winner of the IJF Midwest Finals as a 4 year old and competed through Grand Prix in the US. Rockette is out of the mare Lovely Girl , winner and runner up in 2 World Cup qualifiers with Lynne Little.


Patronus Charm EMP "Norman"

Price: $7,500
Level: Prospect
Sire: Pallido Blu CF
Dam: Fascination ES
2015 15.1hh RPSI Gelding

Patronus Charm (Norman) is a black and white RPSI tobiano gelding. By Pallido Blu CF and out of BWP Select mare Fascination ES. Bold personality with a willing attitude and about as sweet as they come. Absolutely STUNNING mover. He would make a fantastic Small Hunter, Dressage or Event horse. Great opportunity to purchase an extremely well bred horse that will get you noticed with both his spectacular movement and his gorgeous coloring. Only selling due to owner changing direction with her program. If this guy was a hand taller he would be triple the price.

Norman's sire, Pallido Blu CF, attended the 70 day stallion test in 2013. He placed fifth overall in his stallion test with a score of 116.70, ranking 5th in dressage (114.48) and ranking 5th in jumping (115.52). Pallido scored a perfect 10 for Character, 9.5 for Constitution, and 9’s for both Temperament and Willingness to work. His sire Palladio (by Caletto I), has a record of proven, talented, athletic offspring known for easy and trainable minds. Palladio won many International Hunter Derby classes and has offspring winning in all disciplines. Lido’s dam, the premium mare Rainfall, combines the well-known pinto bloodline of Rainbow with an athletic Kentucky-bred thoroughbred motherline.

Norman's dam, Fascination ES, earned her Elite Conformation label with BWP, and completed her performance test to earn Select Mare Status. Dam's sire Nicholas competed very successfully through level 7 Jumpers, 2nd level Dressage, and Novice Eventing. Dam's Dam was undefeated through 1* Eventing until an injury ended her career.

 

Hey Bartender "Bentley"

Price: $5,500
Level: Prospect
Sire: Behindatthebar
Dam: Time Lasts
2012 16.1hh Jockey Club Gelding

Bentley has a great pedigree for sport and a fantastic brain to go along with it. He is quiet enough to pack around beginner riders on the flat and fancy enough to take home some ribbons once he is finished. He does need a little more polishing  to be "show ring ready" but he is a quick learner and very willing to please. He needs more experience over fences but is very willing and has an extremely cute jump. Bentley has lovely movement and a nice, large, steady stride to make it down the lines in the hunter ring.

He was recently sold pending vet check (the lady absolutely loved him!) but decided to pass due to the vet finding that one of his hips is slightly lower/less developed than the other. I have included a picture from directly behind him so you can see it is not very pronounced and I have a feeling that with more consistent work and muscle development it will disappear. He does get tender without front shoes, but otherwise has never taken an off step since I have owned him. UTD on shots, Coggins, teeth and farrier. No vices, health or lameness issues.

 

Gorum "Ellie"

Price: $2,000
Level: Prospect
Sire: Lunarpal
Dam: Louetta (x Hadif)
2009 16hh Jockey Club Mare

Ellie is a warhorse mare with 50 starts and earnings over $60,000! She has lovely old-school breeding and would make either a great sporthorse project or broodmare. I got her from a neglect situation this past January and was planning to make her my RRP and personal event horse. Unfortunately, life has not cooperated and I just do not have the time I need to do her justice.

As you can see from her pictures and video, she does still need a little more weight and is lacking in conditioning. I do have pictures of her from when I took her in if you’d like to see just how far she has come. She leads, loads, clips, ties, stands for the farrier, fly spray and baths. UTD on shots, Coggins, teeth and farrier. Has not taken a lame step or had a health issue since I have had her. She does get a little anxious in a stall or when worked away from her friends, but with some time and patience I do not see this remaining an issue. She just needs more consistent work than I can give her.

This mare is hands down one of the smartest horses I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and I do not say that lightly. You show her something once and she’s got it. While she doesn’t know a whole lot under saddle, she also doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. Absolutely zero bite, kick, buck, rear or bolt in this girl. I have put my very novice rider boyfriend up on her because she is one of the safest most straightforward horses on the property. She packed him around like an old pro. I have way, waaaaaay, more money into this mare than what I am asking, and she will be a FANTASTIC horse for someone, I just really need to cut down on my numbers and reduce my work load.


She's A Heart Ache - Bella

Price: $4,500
Level: Prospect
Sire: Run Production
Dam: Holly Beach (x Bag)
2012 16.2hh Jockey Club Mare

Bella is a jaw-dropping, absolutely gorgeous mare who retired soundly after 25 races. She has a fantastic work ethic and is going to be a real head turner with some more training. This girl just screams Eventer. She has the movement to place very well in the dressage phases and the bold personality to be a beast on xc with proper development. 

Bella was let down for over a year after her race career was finished and is just now coming back  into training. She is currently working on flat work and learning to move over her back and relax into her new job. She is more of a sensitive type of horse so I would prefer for her to go to a rider who works well with that type. She does not have a mean bone in her body and has never once offered anything naughty (even when pulled straight out of the pasture and ridden after a year hiatus), but she can get tight through her body and needs someone who can encourage her to use herself properly and relax until she figures out her new role. I don't use the term "UL prospect" on many of my sale horses, but I will say I think this girl has what it takes. UTD on farrier, Coggins, shots and dental. Does need shoes on the front, but has zero soundness or health issues otherwise. Free jumping video coming soon.
