Hi Wendy, Just wanted to share these pics of Gabriel taken today at his first dressage competition. He did pretty well seeing as he has only been back in work for just over a week after a busy covering season so was rather thrown in at the deep end! He is so mature looking now, big and gorgeous!! He was ridden by the girl who owns the stud where we take him to do the AI...she loves him and can't get over his amazing temperament! :)....Ellie (Owner of Chapel Farm Polo Paint Horses of Cornwall, England)
Presenting 'Salsa' (red roan tobiano filly) who was bred and exported to Ellie Kuun's Polo program (Chapel Hill Stud Farm) in England from the Spotted Fawn Paint Ranch in Montana and how thrilled we are to see her advancing in this amazing sport that is dominated by TBs because it takes such great stamina and ability in mind and body to perform. Thank you Ellie for sharing our fillies career in this new generation of PAINTED POLO PONIES....sure to be more coming in Ellie's future program with our stud Gabriel we exported to Ellie as her main breeding stallion of Polo Paint Horses.
"Salsa is in training at Ham Polo Club which is the only polo club in London. She is being trained and ridden by Will Healy. Salsa won her tournament as the BEST PLAYING POLO PONY. Will goes to Argentina every winter where he runs an established and very successful breeding operation over there and then imports a few top ponies back to the UK each year to play polo with. Ellie of Chapel Farm Stud in England will be crossing Gabriel on a few of these top playing mares (who have come over from Argentina) to produce the next generation playing ponies, with a splash of Paint of course! Will also has a 4 year old in training by Gabriel out of one of his special mares...we'll be watching!

Florida (Lass x Bueno) was amazingly well behaved seeing as it was her first ever show and this one is BIG...(130,000 people over 3 days....!). I'm so so proud of her, she was so well behaved and she trotted up beautifully for the judge and it was the first time that she had ever been in a trailer as well. A big achievement for a western bred horse against top English bred horses!!...she did us proud Wendy!! What a little star!!!...Ellie."
"I am getting ready to start 'Song' of the Dove under saddle this winter. I really have no words to explain her personality. She is beautiful inside and out. The kindest and most loving filly ever. Thank-you so much for these horses, Medea"
'SONG OF THE DOVE'...APHA Silver Cream Grulla filly arrived out of 'One Lonesome Dove' and 'Big Gunner' on 4-7-14. 'SONG' is a gift....who would of dreamed out of these two parents that once in a blue moon you would get genetics together to produce this gorgeous Grulla Paint filly with a cream gene and double black gene too. She is already tall and straight and full of determination to seize life from the get go. After imprinting at birth, she was up on her feet the first try and would NOT give in to defeat, but bounced around on all 4's till she was set and able to walk and move on her own. She wants to be a leader that doesn't know normal, but exceptional as she moved and thought and nursed while not steady yet but made it happen through sheer will. She will forge ahead in anything you choose to do with her and do it better than is expected. Certainly one of versatility for any discipline as she doesn't know limits. With her beauty and unique color and genetics, she'll be one to capture everyone's attention! SOLD! Going to Nova Scotia, Canada!
