Our program for 2014 resulted in a Dutch filly by Consul and the TB mare Leontine. In 2015 we added the grey TB mare Go Seek and bred her to the Selle Francais Crin Rouge. Our current status in 2016 has Leontine pregnant to Palme City and Go Seek is pregnant to Consul.

 

 

 Our Stallion is Palme City by Donaufurst out of Palme. Palme City is a registered Trakehner and approved performance stallion by the Canadian Sport Horse Association. He was Horse of the Year as a yearling and 2 year old.

Donaufurst(aka Don) is by Mahagoni out of Donaufart Von Shimmelhof. He was imported into Canada from Germany in 1989 as a young stallion with his sibling Peron by Gunter Bertelmann. He passed away at the age of 31 at Valahalla Farm in Florida..

Donaufurst was the only Trakehner in the United States or Germany to produce three approved sons his first year of breeding. Don’s bloodlines combine the Olympic Superstars of Jumping and Dressage, through Abdullah (Sired by Donauwind, the full brother to Don’s Dam, Donaufahrt vom Schimmelhof) and Peron (Sired by Mahagoni also Don’s sire). His performance in Hunter/Jumper competitions and numerous championships are well recorded in Canada and the US.

Palme City’s most successful offspring is Hail to Palm, 8 yr old bay 16.3h gelding registered ATA Trakehner currently in dressage training at our new farm in Northern Virginia. See HAIL TO PALM on Youtube.
