Indeed there is something to be said about a tall, dark and handsome gentleman. Today marks 30 days since Prince Neff’s last winning race. As he has been adjusting to his new career away from the track, he has had me in deep thought. Many words come to mind to try to describe him such as, ‘soulful’, ‘wise’, ‘gentlemanly’….and many more.
4 years ago I was in the trainer’s box when through the morning sun, I hear a horse coming up from my right. Everyone around me were chattering and catching up on news, but I didn’t say a word. My eyes were glued on this horse as he floated past.
Since that morning, I’ve followed Prince Neff’s successful career and always made not-so-subtle hints that I was in love and to be the first in line when it was time to put him into a new career.
Prince Neff (barn name Eddie) oozes class, intelligence and quiet confidence. A stable favorite of his trainer, he was well looked after and it shows. For more information go to the HORSES FOR SALE page.
I’ve waited quietly in the shadows for 4 years, and I’m so excited to have him home. Eddie is a lovely gentleman who stands at 17.3 hands. I can imagine an experienced Amateur or a Professional will be very interested in developing him. He is quiet with a type of wisdom that oozes out of every pore. His pedigree leans heavily on Thoroughbred jumping success and with his calm mind, he is certain to be competitive in the Dressage.
Information and photos from his photo shoot will be posted later this week. But if you’re a serious buyer and have missed out on our previous sale horses, it is always suggested to quickly contact the farm.
First time out at Training Level in a large division, Louis started off in an excellent position, winning the Dressage with a score of 26. A couple greenie rails on turf and making up for it on a big cross country course designed by John Williams. Lou finished in 4th with a double clear and was AGAIN the Thoroughbred Incentive Program winner for all Training divisions.
New Thoroughbreds will be arriving at the farm. Many of you were on a wait list and missed out on Handsome Jake. But if you contact me now I can assist in what you’re looking to purchase.
We nailed our summertime goals and now it’s time to focus on the move up to Training Level. At home I’ve been schooling more difficult tests and jumping Prelim height stadium fences, in order to make the Training Level trials feel less stressful.
This weekend I get to play ‘groom’ and watch my boy go under the guidance of Werner Geven of Geven Eventing. Stay tuned and fingers crossed!
Congratulation to Bryant McGee on his purchase of Handsome Jake. We are all thrilled knowing that its not only a perfect match, but that we will continue to see Jake move up the ranks in Eventing and follow his future success. Thank you Bryant for your love of Thoroughbreds and we look forward to seeing you both at the horse trials!
