Annika (Autocrat x Bold Ruler xx)
German Oldenburg Verband Main Mare Book 16.3hh
Annika was bred and raised at our farm, and was trained to fourth level dressage before being sold as a school master for an adult amateur returning to riding after a long absence. After a few years circumstances, changed for Annika's new owner and we were offered the opportunity to bring Annika back to our farm. We jumped at the chance and have now added her to our select group of broodmares. She is still completely sound at the age of 15. Annika has an exceptional work ethic, with a very calm disposition. She loves to have attention and is always the first at the gate.
Annika is by the Hanoverian stallion Autocrat and out of Clerical Crisis, a thoroughbred mare with a significant sport horse pedigree including Bold Ruler and Nasrullah. In addition to showing great aptitude for piaffe/passage work, Annika demonstrated excellent form over fences. Autocrat was imported from the Celle State Stud in Germany and provided himself under saddle but successfully completing the 300 day test. He was ranked 14th out of 50 stallions and placed 7th in dressage with over 120 points. Autocrat scroed 8’s in: character, temperament, willingness to perform, rideability, trot, canter, jumping and scope. Autocrat was known for his quiet, kind temperament, willingness to please, handsome good looks and versatile bloodlines. He consistently passed those qualities on to his offspring, as well as his excellent hind leg mechanics.
Annika, was awarded a premium foal at her Oldenburg inspection and is entered into the main mare book with the German Oldenburg Verband. She has produced two exceptional foals for us to date, with her 2019 filly by Sir Gregory awarded a premium foal.
Erin (Eastern Ruler x Pleasurette xx)
Canadian Warmblood Mare 16.1hh
Erin was bred and raised at our farm and was originally intended to be a dressage prospect for Jill. Unfortunately she suffered an accident in her paddock about a year into training and was retired to our broodmare herd. Erin has produced our best moving horses and always adds her exceptional hind leg and a powerful uphill canter to her offspring, along with a kind disposition. She received 8's on her trot at her German Oldenburg inspection with the inspectors proclaiming that she was one of the nicest mares they had seen in Canada. Unfortunately her sire Eastern Ruler (KWPN) does not allow Erin to qualify for the Main Mare Book with the German Oldenburg Verband.
Eastern Ruler (G Ramiro Z x Zola) has proven himself as a sire of champions in the dressage, hunter and jumper ring. Eastern Ruler's list of winning offspring continues to grow with outstanding individuals such as: Lindor's Finest, Encore III, Golden Summerlea, Hollywood, Edwyntonn, Reighn, Lavender, Nemesis, Ebon's Elayna, Eastrule Passion, Reighnmaker, Reverire, Ultimus, Excalibur, Wind Dancer, Mistral, Ramiza L, Ugandro & Heir Born & premium mare Milagre.

One of the world's leading sires of jumping horses, Ramiro himself was tremendously successful at show jumping, with many wins in Nations Cups, Puissance and International Grand Prix competition. Ramiro influences nearly all European performance stud books. He not only produced hundreds of successful offspring in jumping, for example the superstar - Ratina Z, but also is now noted for producing top dressage horses as well. Dam: Zola (ster) Eastern Ruler's dam, the Ster mare Zola, descends from 2 of the world's top stallions. The Selle Francais stallion Ibrahim (sire of Alme) and the Preferent Dutch stallion Amor.
