latest news and updates....
The past four years have seen the Amazing kids growing into absolutely lovely mounts, and a personal highlight has been the success of our own homebred Amuzing (Amazing x Mirror Image/All the Gold). This 2011 gelding has more than surpassed the expectations of myself as his breeder and trainer, and also of his owner, Jill Hardie. In 2018, "Junior" as he is aptly called, moved into the 3' classes, and came home from almost every show with a Champion or Reserve, as well as an ever growing fan club! His eye catching good looks are just the icing on the cake for this kind, well mannered boy, and he always tries his hardest each and every time he steps in the ring. In 2018, he qualified for Zone 2 Hunter finals, and he and Jill came home with a very respectable 3rd in the second class. For his first outing in such an impressive venue, we could not have asked for more from him.
What a year for the Amazing kids!!
What an incredible year this was! Amazing's first crop of foals started showing over fences, and are proving to be naturals in the ring. They seem to all have a beautiful rhythm to their canter, excellent form over the fences, and an easy lead change. We are especially proud of our own homebred Amuzing (Amazing x Mirror Image/All the Gold) who has been Champion or Reserve in every division he's entered so far.
Yearling filly Tainted Love (Amazing x Tuxedo Park) finished 2015 as USEF National Champion for Yearling Hunter Breeding!! Many congratualtions to her team on a phenomemal year! Several other of his offspring had excellent placings at some of the top Hunter Breeding venues such as Devon and the Sallie B. Wheeler Championships. If you want to be part of the winning legacy, breed to Amazing!
Highlights on the homefront included a successful first year of showing for our own Airborne (Amazing x Cara Mia
(Cassini I/Landlord/Landgraf)) and the brith of his stunning full sister Arabella. This cross is proving to be a winner, and Arabella is being retained to develop as a top performance horse

So far this has been a fantastic year! We have several excellent quality mares in foal to Amazing for 2015 foals.
This year's foal crop has been just beautiful, and Amazing continues to stamp each and every one of his foals with his frame, personality, and unique markings.
Some of his first foal crop are being lightly started under saddle, with our own homebred Amuzing winning his very first under saddle class he entered. Good job Junior!
His offspring are really hitting the hunter breeding ring and doing well enough to land Amazing in the top 5 Leading Hunter Breeding Sires on the USEF rankings. Thank you to all the mare owners getting my grandkids out showing!
The high point of the year for us personally came when our own colt Airborne (Amazing x Cara Mia) was awarded Gold Premium at his RPSI inspection, and was high score foal of the day!!
We are so excited to finally get to keep one of these babies for ourselves, and hope for a bright future for him!
This year saw Amazing's biggest foal crop to date, and they are all fabulous!
These foals are unmistakably Amazing foals as he is stamping them with his friendly personality, excellent conformation, and athletic ability. We are hearing time and again how these foals are natural jumpers from day one!!
Amazing foals are also starting to make an impression in the Hunter Breeding ring.
His yearling filly Adaire brought home the blue from the prestigious Devon, and we couldn't be happier for her team! Yearling colt Aut of the Balou brought home a win from Lexington, and excellent ribbons against stiff competition at Warrenton. Two year olds Amaze Me, Amuzing, and Amuze Me have all brought home Best Young Horse honors during the show season. We can't wait to start seeing some of these kids under saddle soon!
