April 27, 2017 - Maureen has taken over the ride on Monty now that Mitch is back with Allie and Brit is being bred next month. She has been riding him for two months and is so proud of how he is becoming a really nice dressage horse. He still gets the occasion jump session with Mitch or Stephen as he is a wonderful jumper too. Some pics from today and we went on our first solo hack.  


February 21, 2017 - So good to see Allie back to work - looking forward to watching her compete this year.

November 21, 2016 - 2016 Fillies first taste of winter - new (to them) winter blankets arrived just in time this morning

November 19/20 2016 - Strom and Brittania attended a 2 day Tom Dvorak clinic.  He was very pleased with the improvement in both since the spring and both horses did great.

November 7, 2016 - Nothing better than a fall hack on a beautiful day with one of my sons. Absolutely gorgeous out there - through the hay field, corn field and out through our neighbour's harvested fields.

October 2, 2016 Some foal pics for smiles today. Mares are keeping the foals surrounded as a new mare arrived this week. The little girls are getting along famously and both are getting very dark. Amelia is almost 5 months and Vienna is 2 1/2









October 1, 2016 - While my video taping skills need practice - Here is Lilly and Stephen at Grandview - 4th clear Training event. Ready to upgrade to Prelim next year.

October 1, 2016 - Prospect's Belmont completed his second event in as many months with another great result - finishing 4th. His second event at Grandview Farms was handled very well - a little stick in the top end of the dressage arena at the strange judge's booth, beautiful stadium round and a fantastic clear cross-country. Everything was brand new to him for his first time at Grandview and he really stepped up to the plate.

September 26, 2016 - Check out the knees and tuck on Monty. He had a great schooling at Dreamcrest this evening and is maturing so nicely. Ian was impressed with the progress he is making in such a short time.

September 17, 2016 - So proud of Lilly and Stephen today. Last weekend's dressage proved probl

ematic so we went to the RCRA Bronze show today. So accommodating that they let him do both Eventing Training tests. The first test went extremely well with 64.7% - they were both relaxed and the best I have ever seen them. The test had an 8 and 7 7's. with the judge commenting that there were some good moments.

This was definitely a confidence building experience.

Test 2 (the problem test last weekend) went even better notwithstanding the pouring rain. 65% - with 3 7.5's, and 6 7's including a first 7 for rider. Stephen was thrilled with their results today. Judge's comments - WELL DONE!!!

September 11, 2016 - Dreamcrest Horse Trials:  Such a proud day for us at Prospect Equine Farms this weekend as our first homebred and son of Bravestrom completed his first event like a seasoned pro. Prospect's Belmont finished 8th out of 14 at his first event at Dreamcrest. Mitchell did an expert job and the results far exceeded our expectations of the baby horse at his first show. Handled a crazy warm up with many strange horses to go on to a wonderful dressage test with 7.5's and 7's and 6.5's. A few tiny inattentive moments but you could not ask for better. Then onto his first ever Stadium course. Only one jump caught his eye and a few rails but under the expert hands of his rider it was a beautiful calm and smooth round. By the time cross country came around Monty behaved like a veteran xc horse and off he went handling every question with a double clear round. Monty is now an eventer.  XC pics courtesy of Gloria McKim.

September 11, 2016 - Dreamcrest Horse Trial:  Part of the sport of horses teaches us that there are ups and downs. After a fantastic dressage warmup and a great beginning to their dressage test, a bobble at A resulted in elimination for Stephen and Lilly. As a technical elimination, the TD permitted them to continue onto Stadium and XC as long as there were not any issues. While a slip in Stadium resulted in a couple rails, the balance of the round was flawless. Again XC - their favourite part of eventing, proved again what a great team they are becoming with a clear round -just a bit too fast - as they eat the course for breakfast. Disappointing for sure to be eliminated - unheard of for these two, it is definitely a learning experience. Onward and upward.  XC pics courtesy of Gloria McKim.


September 5, 2016 - Another fantastic schooling for Monty and Lilly at Dreamcrest today - looks like they are both ready for the event at Dreamcrest on the weekend.




August 29, 2016 - Lilly and Stephen had a great schooling with Ian Roberts at Dreamcrest today.



August 29, 2016- Prospect's Belmont and Mitchell had their first session at Dreamcrest with Ian Roberts in prep for their first event in two weeks. 

Day 2 and our second run through the PSG Test. Our coach gave us a very strenuous warm up and we felt right on the ball as we entered the ring. While the canter pirouettes and our tempi lines still proved to be the sticking points of our test, the rest of the test went very smoothly and I felt that that Strom and I really hit our grove through most of it - getting our changes on request where I wanted them. Our scores were 56 at C and 54 at B, a substantial improvement from the previous day for a final score of 54.8. Two 7's from both judges. All of our hard work over the last two months made a real turning point for us and I really felt it while riding this test. It was the best ride we have ever had. Love my Dancing Pony.

August 26-27 - 2016   I am thrilled to report that Prospectís Bravestom, my 9 yr old homebred Gelding by Braveheart (Swedish WB) out of Prospectís Atheana (CSHA) and I have completed our first Dressage show at the Prix St. Georges Level at the Summer Classic Gold Dressage Show at the Caledon Horse Park on August 26-28, 2016.

Our first Prix St. Georges Test at the Cornerstone Summer Dressage Classic was a huge accomplishment for Bravestrom and I. We did our first 4th level tests in June and then worked very hard over the summer in order to go down the centre line in PSG at this this show. Our goal was to at least get 50% and we got 52.5% - Woohoo. The biggest steps for us going to this level are the canter pirouettes and the tempi changes. While these still need a lot of work (no surprise there), I was very pleased to receive a 7 for our extended canter. The test didn't start well with a spin at the halt - courtesy of the shad tails but we recovered and I remembered the whole test (almost forgot the salute at the end). A few bucks and leaps in the tempi lines along with our timing of the 1/2 halts created some interesting moments.

Good Moments

and the bad


August 16, 2016 - What else to do with foals on a rainy day - play in the arena - first Vienna - now 2 1/2 weeks old - still shy

And Amelia with her personality shining through.

August 7, 2016 - During our lesson today Vienna decided that she had enough of the small paddock and went through the vinyl fence without her mom. So we decided that they would all go out into the big pasture. Everyone seems pretty happy out there. Amelia was happy to back out there too.

And some video


August 7, 2016 - Belmont did a little bit of jumping after his dressage lesson today - also played around with some of the smaller xc jumps.


August 6, 2016 - Not to be outdone - Vienna at 9 days has some moves too.


August 6, 2016 - Amelia has really got her moves down at 3 months.

August 6, 2016 - Big day for our 2016 foals as they spent the day together for the first time.  Such a big difference in size - 3 months to 9 days. Duchess was very sure to tell Amelia that Vienna was off limits for now but things settled quickly. Amelia understood and Vienna stuck to her mom. It was great to see them out there together.


August 1, 2016 - Day 4 - First time outside for mommy Duchess and the little Vienna - electrified the fence to keep the other horses away and Duchess was pretty good at keeping baby away from them as well.

July 31, 2016 - Day 3 in the Arena for Vienna and she is really getting a hang of her legs.

July 29, 2016 - Prospect's Vienna - 1 day old - first time in the Arena. Still wobbly and needs to unfold.

July 28, 2016 - Welcome to the world little one. At 2:15 am on July 28, 2016 Prospect's Vienna dropped into the world. A bay filly with a small white star(I think) and two back white socks (same as Amelia). Delivery was stand up because we had to move Duchess as she was delivering against the wall. By 3:00 am baby is walking and nursing. Prospect's Vienna - by Vantage (Viva Voltaire) out of Duchess (Deutschmeister). A beautiful Bay filly.

July 17, 2016 - Amelia and Odin having a conversation.

July 4, 2016 - Duchess has about a month to go for her foal and she is getting quite big.

July 4, 2016 - Prospect's Amelia running around the field - what a beauty - 7 weeks old - out in the big pasture and enjoying the freedom under Allie's watchful eyes.

June 29, 2016 - Great day for my younger son and Lilly today too answering some training level questions at the schooling event at Glen Oro that were new for them. You can see how much they enjoy cross country.  They finished 4th in the division.


June 29, 2016 - June has been a very busy month for Belmont "Monty".   So proud of my older son's skill and the great care he took today to make a day of fantastic firsts for our homebred Prospect's Belmont a wonderful success. Firsts for Monty included - a long trailer ride - first show, first cross country, first day on and off the trailer at a show, first time going away from a barn mate at a show, first warmup with unfamiliar horses, first start gate, first time through the flags and galloping on his first cross country course. So proud of the baby horse. A little upset when Lilly went off to do her thing but settled after a bit.


June 23, 2016 - As promised - Video of today's session with Monty



June 23, 2016 - Great session on Monty today - he is maturing so nicely.  Video to follow

June 19, 2016 - great hot day at dreamcrest today for Stephen and Lilly. She was so settled today and the dressage test was fantastic except for one big bobble in the middle - and the confusion of the whistle in the next ring. Some 7's and the best test they have ever done.

Stephen and Lilly had a great Stadium round - especially considering they have only had one session with Ian this spring. Two rails - rider error - but the most consistent round ever and it was just poetry to watch. Very pleased at how this team has matured.

Last but definitely not least - their favourite phase of eventing - cross country. They were a finely tuned machine on cross country - needing to trot a little mid round to ensure they weren't over time and they hit the time bang on and had a double clear cross country round. So proud and even in the heat she came off the course looking like she could have done it again with ease.

June 10, 2016 - Prospect's Amelia is almost one month old - what a beauty this little filly is.  By Donnegan out of Prospect's Free Spirit.


June 4, 2016 - Prospect's Brittania also showed at the Cornerstone Spring Gold Dressage show and upgraded to First Level.  Day 1 - Test 1-1 and she felt a bit under the weather.  A few bucks in the canter work of our test, and not as much throughness as normal left us with a score of 53 and 7th place.  Day 2 - Test 1-2 - was her first test with lateral movements.  She felt much better today and more focused but the heat and stress left her a little tired.  Still not 100% and we did break in the canter work but did get a 7 for her freewalk and a good loose rein trot circle.  All in all a much better test all around to finish with 53 again but better feeling through the test.


June 4, 2016 - So proud of Prospect's Bravestrom this weekend at the Cornerstone Spring Gold Dressage show. It was our debut at 4th level and the first day we were a bit conservative and finished with a 53. Day two saw a great improvement and other than a rider error (oops forgot the canter pirouette), a bit of a struggle with the canter pirouettes - which we just started working on and a miscount on the 4 tempi line we had the best ride ever - we got 8 - 7's on our 4-2 test - finishing with 56%. Not too shabby for a homebred 9 yr old - the first time at fourth and his plus size owner. So pleased with the changes and how light and obedient he was. I have to thank my son for the great pictures of our whole test. So many great pictures it was hard to choose.

May 22, 2016 - Prospect's Belmont - jumping for the 4th time - we have taken our time with this 5 yr old as he is pretty tall.



May 14, 2016 - Getting cooler meant that Amelia donned Odin's blanket to keep warmer.

May 14, 2016 - A morning romp in the arena for Allie and Amelia - starting to get a hang of the legs and worrying her mom as she starts running around.

May 13, 2016 - Amelia and Allie went out into the arena for a little walk around.

May 13, 2016 - Say hello to the morning Little Amelia - standing and nursing well.


May 13, 2016 - She has arrived.  Join us in welcoming Prospect's Amelia - born at 12:30 am on May 13, 2016 in the middle of a thunderstorm.  Out of Prospect's Free Spirit (Freedom Z) by Donnegan (Don Frederico).  We think she is black or very very dark bay with two white hind socks and a white blaze.

May 6, 2016 - Prospect's Belmont 2011 CSHA Gelding by Prospect's Bravestrom - out of Been Jazzin
First XC - 3rd Off Property at Dreamcrest


April 22, 2016- Pictures of Prospect's Free Spirit "Allie" due any time now- she is 321 days in foal to Donnegan.

And Duchess - all muddy and 237 days

February 26,  2016

Finally, after a number of months - initial negotiations, a change of ownership and thinking that I missed an opportunity, a second chance and more negotiation she has finally arrived and I could not be happier. Meet Duchess - a 16.3hh Old/Trak CSH mare by Deutschmeister 6 months in foal with a Viva Voltaire grandchild. I could not be more thrilled and excited for the mare and foal to come. So pleased at how well she trailered and settled into her paddock. What a good girl. And without further ado here she is on arrival and also in the arena for the first time.  Duchess is due to foal a Vantage foal in July, 2016.


January 30, 2016 - Jump Chute day for everyone  - pics and videos

January 12, 2016 - Everyone in there new Pleasant Ridge Storm  and Maximum Diablo blankets.
