Fall 2009

Published on November 24, 2009 by in General, News


Sorry to you who missed the fall German trip. Kathy Feehery and Amy Bresky got super new partners as a result of Verne’s efforts. Rosalie, Kathy’s new mare was shown extensively in Germany and will, hopefully, help Kathy break the 3rd/4th level barrier. She is drop dead gorgeous and an in-hand winner, so look for her at the Northeast breed shows. Amy has another winner in Farlight. He is tall, dark and handsome. He did his first Prix St Georges in Germany, a week after Verne found him, winning the class with a 65%. And he is only seven and looking like a CDI contender. Amy showed him shortly after his arrival in Southern Pines with great success and scores to 68%. Many congratulations to these lucky ladies. We anticipate the continued progress of these teams. For the rest of you, Jeanie and Verne are planning a May trip to Germany, we have some very exciting weanlings to two year olds at River House as well as a number of trained horses in Florida for the season. Check it out!
It seems like we just got home to New Hampshire and it is time to head south for the upcoming season! We had a very busy summer with Verne doing lots of clinics in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York. We had three super foals, two by Tony and one by Maronjo, although Trina kept her mare and Maronjo colt here all season so we had a total of four romping about.(see more about the inspection and competition news under the months) The inspection was a work of art under Emma’s direction. She again prepared and hosted a lovely party for friends, neighbors and Hanoverian breeders. If you have never been to one of her catered events, you really owe yourself to come next time!! The girls have both applied for graduate school and are in the interview process but Nora will be on the Florida farm for the winter and Emma will be holding down the fort in New Hampshire with Lisa and Jason’s able help. The first week of November, after teaching a five day clinic in Southern Pines, Verne and Nora loaded up eight horses and three corgis in two trailers and, with Jason as third driver, headed out to Williston, Florida. Jeanie is really hoping they will be back to pick up her five horses and one corgi before the snow arrives!! The Florida farm looks to be hopping this winter. We hope you will get down for some sun, to take in the horse immersion in the Ocala area, to hang out with our gang and to see all Florida has to offer. See you then!!
