So nice to get an update this week from horse I sold years ago. West River a 12 year old and first foal of our mare Rivalia was spotted earlier this week at a clinic in Ocala with her new owner and rider Shannon O’Hatnick. They make a great team and I look forward to seeing them develop their partnership in the showring. I love this photo of her showing her braveness and talent on cross country. We have a few more confident, athletic fillies out of the same mare looking for their show ring partner. Thanks for noticing her Jenny Jelen and making the connection.
Thrilled with our 2019 foals:
Dare to Dream (Dauphin x Serafina WF(Sam Steel/World Cup IV). Winner of the Ontario CWHBA Foal Futurity.
Obsessed V, by Franklin out of National Champion mare Restique (Redwine/Gribaldi)
Dauphin x Serafina (Sam Steele/World Cup IV)
Franklin x Restique (Redwine/Gribaldi)
His Querido x Vivika (Viva Voltaire/Maraton 600) MARE SOLD, congratulations Kate.
His Querido is getting to be know as a stallion who stamps his offspring He rather consistently produces his beautiful head, strong and smooth topline and good feet and legs. 4 Foal Futurity winners in 3 years of breeding. Several have now been backed and are proving to be easy to handle and very straight forward to start. We look forward to updates from their development under saddle.
For the 3rd year in a row Vandenbrink Warmbloods brings home first prize in the CWHBA Ontario Foal Futurity at the CWHBA Open Breed show at Meadowlarke North. This year it was His Reverie, a young but very well developed filly by His Querido out of Rivalia by Graf Royal out of Riverdale. Judge Dorita Kozak complimented the filly on her well developed hindquarters, nice head and neck and beautiful head. This is a full sibling to the 2016 winner His Rival, and half sibling to last years Harmony, all three sired by VandenBrinks own breeding stallion His Querido.
We have 3 mares confirmed in foal for next year. We look forward to 2 foals from our own stallion His Querido out of Rivalia and Vivika, and Restique is in foal to the dressage sensation Franklin. Franklin was champion of the KWPN licencing and also performance test. He is showing very well under saddle and is producing spectacular foals.
Rivella, by Oxford out of Riverdale by Kadans had a very successful weekend at Palgrave including a very successful PSG Debut and second placing with rider Andrea Bressee. Rivella is owned by Diane Campitelli.
