So proud of this pair. Emma Batchelder and Grand Affaire placing in the Intermediare 1 OPEN at US dressage finals.

Bred by Coen Van Wely in Embro, Started by Scott Carmichael and further trained by Andrea Volasko and Jenny Jelen before I sold him on to this young talented rider from the North East. So proud.

Bonfilia, 6 year old

Bonfilia, or Bonbon as she is affectionately called in the barn is a spectacularly talented mare for the jumper ring. She’s been developed slowly with a professional start as a 3 year old, and then brought to the home farm to mature and grow up. She was started back up again in her 5 year with a very solid dressage foundation and occasional work over fences. Now into her 6 year old year she is looking for someone to take on her continuing education and develop her to her potential.

Pedigree: Sire is Bon Balou (Balou de Rouet/Argentinus/Landadel), and dam is Rivalia, a mare by “I am Graf Royal” is is by the legendary Graf Gotthard Z. Damline also contains greats such as Ramiro, Amor and le Mexico.

Bonfilia carries a high percentage blood and is from a mare who consistently produced very good jumping offspring when bred to dressage stallions. It was time to try breeding her to a good jumper sire instead and see what she could produce.

The result is Bonbon, a very bold, athletic and powerful mare who is showing us a tremendous amount of scope and talent for the jumper ring.

Off property schooling to attend the “Niagara’s Finest” event at West Niagara Fairgrounds.

Bonbon comes from a family of talented jumpers including this mare West River in the video below, who is sired by Westporte, a dressage bred stallion that’s used predominantly for the hunter ring. She is a successful Eventer, winning the Indoor Eventing Challenge at the Royal Winter Fair with a crazy 16 second lead over two rounds. With her owner she was the highest placing Junior and highest placing Canadian at the CCI 1* at Bromont that same year with a 6th place finish. The family has tremendous power and athleticism and we have big hopes for Bonfilia to be developed to her potential over fences.

Update: West River spotted in Ocala FL

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.WestriverFlorida
