Watch Me Smok’em (Barn name Stevie) by Fort Prado is a gorgeous youngster who has all the qualities and potential of a serious show competitor. Many are familiar with our Fort Prado horses, and “Stevie” will not disappoint. More postings to come both here and on our Facebook page.
The farm would like to congratulate Bree Robinette and her supportive parents Pete and Jessica, on their purchase of Cape Kimberly (Bella). It’s a perfect fit and are very talented together. Bella and Bree will be working under Pan American Gold Medalist Michael Pollard!
I have to admit that this filly makes my job so easy. She appears to have been doing this all her life, when it’s really her first outing away from the farm. It says a lot about her training and what her future will be! Very suitable for a professional or experienced amateur.
The Area 3 Championships were held at Poplar Place Farm in Hamilton, GA. The show grounds along with gorgeous stadium fences and fresh cross country design were absolutely perfect.
Louis had a great outing and massively improved overall from his placing and performance in 2018. He was a superstar and really proved himself over a true championship cross country course. We finished our division in 5th and was a solid performance to be qualified for the American Eventing Championships (AEC’s) held in my home town of Lexington, KY. The Kentucky Horse Park is quite a jaw dropper.
A box showed up at the farm gate and it was from the Jockey Club. Eor The Terrific (Lou) was recognized as 2018 National Performance Reserve Champion for the Thoroughbred Incentive Program at Training Level Eventing. The award means a lot in so many ways and is important in confirming what we already know about Thoroughbreds. They’re amazing. GO Thoroughbred! GO BIG LOU!
Our friends at 4 Props Aerial, LLC were at Chattahoochee Hills Horse Trials shooting video of competitors on cross-country. Watch Lou (Eor the Terrific) and I ride around the Training course with a bird’s-eye view.

The farm is pleased to announce the sale of I’m Thirtynine (Vinny) to J. Ramsey of Louisville, Kentucky. It is absolutely THE perfect match; where Vinny will go on and begin 2019 Eventing. He’s headed to the Ocala Jockey Club for the winter, then back to the sweet Blue Grass state.
Little Kentucky Farm is over-the-moon happy for Des and his new owner Mary Quarles of Ketchen Place Farm in South Carolina. Mary recently lost her Thoroughbred stallion, and the addition of Des to her breeding shed cushions the loss she feels. Des has an impressive pedigree, with an emphasis of English and Irish blood. His affectionate personality and professional temperament will make for a promising addition to Ketchen Place Farm.
