Citroen:  We are excited to have leased this outstanding mare for a 2010 foal.  She is by the legendary Galoubet.  Her show record matches her impressive pedigree. Citroen has a show record which proves her athletic ability, scope, temperament and soundness.  She competed in the 4' hunters, the equitation ring competing in USEF/ASPCA classes as well as winning in the Level 7 jumpers with an Amateur until the age of seventeen.  Citroen is a special mare, and foaled a very correct colt May 14th, 2010 by our Rio Grande son, Rio de Dinero.  


Noble Nellie:  Registered Oldenburg (GOV) mare, born in 2005 and bred by GHF.  Both imported parents (Noble Champion and Foxy Lady - see her below) were International Grand Prix jumpers and won World Cup classes.   Nellie is started under saddle and is a very cute mover with a big stride.  She is showing excellent scope and form over fences.

 Nellie foaled a fantastic Premium GOV colt Metro by Mezcalero (Voltaire/Ramiro) on 3/21.  She has been SOLD and will pursue a performance career.  Nellie's dam is below.
