Overwhelmed with joy and happiness is an understatement. Our 3 yo stallion Vong’s Brunello DWB TF finished his 35 day jumper stallion test today in Denmark and he won the test with a score of 853.5. We are very proud of this amazing young stallion by Balou x Con Capitol x Calido x Pik Bube…
This was a special moment at the farm over the weekend.
Our 19yo family friend Mattis Johannsen is visiting from Holstein in Germany and got to ride our 19yo stallion Carmargue for the first time. (20yo in 2023 but his birthday is not till March)
The special thing about it is that Mattis is the grandson of Carmargues breeder in Germany. Carmargue was bred by Max Hermann Johannsen, approved at the Holsteiner licensing in Neumünster at 2 1/2 years old and was sold at the stallion auction (Euro 230,000.00) to Denmark.
A big moment for both the breeder and the grandson of this great horse 🙂 ❤️
Lets see maybe we will see them in the show ring together as Carmargue is still fit for fight at the age of almost 20. ... See MoreSee Less

Utrillo Hästak and Roope Jokitalo took the blue ribbon in the 1.20m Power & Speed at the Ridge on Friday.
Utrillo is an approved Swedish Warmblood stallion by our own Carmargue out of a mare by Comes VD Heffinck x Darco x Quito De Baussy. He is also the maternal brother of Thelma Hästak by Heartbeat who is one of the upcoming stars in Peder Fredricsons string of young horses already competing at the 1.50m levels.
Have you checked out the new Ridge at Wellington Groves yet ? If not we highly recommend that you do. Top facility hosting shows every week from 0.80m to 1.40m Grand Prix’s. ... See MoreSee Less
Rest in peace Shutterfly 🙏🏻 💔
We are incredibly lucky to own the clone of your dam as well as a full sister genetically 🙏🏻
Can’t wait to see what Tallin’s Be My Shutterfly can do in your honor when she gets to the jumper ring ❤️It is with a very heavy heart that I am sad to announce that we lost Shutterfly this morning. He was a unique and irreplaceable part of our lives.
I was lucky enough to spot Shutterfly as an immature and gangly talent at age 6 during the show in Rastede. He came to my stable a few months later. I was fortunate enough to share the next 24 years of his life with him. We just recently celebrated his 30th birthday.
Shutterfly aka “Petey” started as a doubtful, unsure youngster and blossomed into one of the greatest horses to ever live. He won 3 World Cup Finals, 2 Top Ten Finals, the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen, amongst many other prestigious titles. He brought me to the top of the World Ranking list, as the only women ever, where I was able to enjoy #1 for 24 months. Shutterfly won the Preis von Europa in Aachen against the best in the world at age 18, just before his retirement ceremony there in front of his adoring crowd.
We will miss the kind and sweet-hearted Petey who stuck his nose in the baby carriage and softly nuzzled my daughter Brianne just days after she was born. I am sure that caress gave her the passionate love for horses she has today.
I will miss you my friend and I appreciate every moment I had with you. You were the greatest partner anyone could ever have. You will never be forgotten Petey. Rest in peace my love. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

9 yo Tallin’s Clair De Lune (Clarimo x Briscar x Sandro Z x Landsdown) Holsteiner stamm 741 from our Sweet Lady II.
The mare took some time off to recover from an injury and is now back in form and ready for the season.
Nice mix of blood, fabulous canter and jump - clearly scope and carefulness enough for the bigger tracks ❤️👍🏼🥕🐴✈️ ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations to Shutterfly who turned 30 years old this past Saturday.
One of the true legend in our sport.
We are so privileged to have bred and own his full sister, Tallin’s Be My Shutterfly, who just turned 2 years old. Also known as Flower 🌹 ❤️
Her mother Mystique (Hannah) who we own is the clone of Shutterfly’s dam Famm.
Video from his retirement when he was 18 at Aachen. Amazing he has been retired for 12 years.
