Winter Time at Hunter Ridge Farm

It's been awhile since I have updated the blog and so much has taken place since!
Both Sinatra Soleil and Aurelio have since gone to their new homes. They are both doing fantastic. Its very boring around HRF without them.

On a sad note, Kunstlerisch aka Sassy went to be in horsey heaven. She had coliced badly and was not able to be saved. Luckily her colt was ready to be weaned, but she was in foal to Just the Best for a 2012 foal.

October 12, 2011 Tiffany Bragg Kopp gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Kamden Robert Kopp. He was 7lbs 3 oz. The next pony rider in the making!! He already has two ponies in the barn waiting for him when he is old enough :)

Chappelle returned home from Magic Hill Farm in the beginning of December. He is going nicely under saddle. Such a great brain and so willing. He will stay in light work through the winter. He was 3rd in Zone 5 for 3 Year Old Hunter Breeding and 12th Nationally. Way to go Chappelle!

Hunter Ridge Farm has a new Broodmare that we are very excited about. Her name is Jannina. She is a Canadian Trakehner and absoluetly gorgeous. She has been shown all over and had an injury which took her out of the show ring. So she is now going to be retired as a broodmare. She will be bred this Spring to Just the Best for a 2013 foal. Such a long wait!!


SPS Felicita will be rebred to Sinatra Song for a 2012 foal as well. The first foal from this cross, Sinatra Soleil, is an absolute doll and has the movement to boot!

Happy New Year Everyone. Hope 2012 bring happiness and joy to all of you!

Foals and Horse Shows!

Chappelle at Devon 2011

In June, Chappelle made his debut at the Devon Horse Show!! He was 4th in the PA Bred Non-TB Hunter Breeding and he was 8th in the 3 Year old Non-TB Hunter Breeding. He was such a good boy, as usual!! He was handled by Emily Ann Belin of Magic Hill Farm and he is staying at her farm to be started under saddle in July.

On May 24th Felicita foaled a lovely dark bay colt by Sinatra Song. His name is Sinatra Soleil and he was sold in-utero. His new owner is so excited!! Soleil as we call him is a big boy and very curious. It is so fun to watch him and the other colt interact! Felicita was rebred to Ser Giovetto. He is black Hanoverian stallion. We find out July 5th if she took! SO fingers and toes crossed!!

Sinatra Soleil at 4 weeks old

The Tuscarawas Equestrian Team will be having the first meeting of the 2011-2012 show season in July and are scheduled to have a Chicken BBQ fundraiser on August 20th 2011!!

2011 Apiro Colt is here!!

On May 5th 2011 Kunstlerisch delivered a healthy Apiro Colt named Aurelio. She decided to foal while the barn was busy with activity at the decent hour of 8pm! The birth was text book perfect. Aurelio or Joey as we call him for his barn name is an awesome colt. He has the Apiro movement and brains. He is for sale and will be inspected RPSI in September 2011.

Summer is here!

There has been a lot going on at Hunter Ridge Farm this spring/summer. Here are some photos of whats been happening!

Chappelle was Champion Best Young Horse at the Delaware Showtime series horse show at the end of May. He is turning out to be a very handsome boy!

Roi Soleil is now 3 months old and he is a looker! We are very excited for the Hanoverian Inspection on July 13th at Turning Point Farm in Michigan!

We also had the First Summer Day Camp in June. The girls had a good time and learned a lot about horse care.

Kunstlerisch (aka Sassy) was also confirmed in foal to Apiro for an April 2011 Foal. We are super excited to see this cross again!

Felicita will be bred to Sinatra Song for a 2011 foal as well. This foal should be a super dressage foal!
