A new clip has been added to the NEWS page. Runnymede Farm has hosted the Dutch Keuring on numerous occasions, but in 1990 we had an astounding turnout with a number of first premiums. Not just for Runnymede bred horses, but from other breeders as well. The NAWPN praised us not only for our stellar breeding program, but also for our event planning skills and well turned out horses. Read about it HERE .
Since my move back to Louisiana from Nashville, my favorite sale horse, Rossini, has sold. I only had the privilege of working with him for a few months and, in that short time period, the beautiful chestnut gelding by Relevant developed quite nicely and impressed me very much.
It was quite hard for me to leave such a special horse. He now resides with a very lucky young rider in Colorado whom I hope will enjoy him as much as I did. Congratulations to Margit Nentwig on the sale, and thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to work with such a special and talented guy!
Our former work student, Claudia Boekhout, has been doing very well in shows back in the Netherlands. Riding the 10 year old Friesian mare Joke (by Mintse 384 and owned by Wim van Elteren) at B level, Claudia placed first and second their first time out. Joke has been a brood mare without consistent training until Claudia began riding her just one month ago. She is looking forward to moving Joke up to L level soon as she is progressing so quickly.
Claudia is also looking forward to riding the two young three year olds also at the farm. Congratulations, and good luck Clau!
I would love to post a gorgeous photograph of horses in the snow all huddled up in their blankets, but that just doesn’t seem to be the case here in southern Louisiana. Instead we get humidity with rain, possible hail and tornado warnings. So, in the spirit of the season, here’s a photo of the farm when it did actually snow a few years ago. Happy Holidays from all of us at Runnymede Farm!
