At Bromont farm, we have been involved in breeding for the past 20 years. Recently, we have sold all of our broodmares and young stock, and we have decided to put our emphasis on training and boarding.
Janet's Show Horses
Janet has two horses that she is training for herself. Caprice is a black 16.2 1/2h, 1997 Hanoverian mare who was imported from Germany in 2001 and is by Cashman out of a mare by Monaco. She is an excellent mare who has superb rideability and a great willingness to work. Caprice showed National at Third level for the 2006 show season and came away with many second place ribbons in a highly competitive open division with some very nice scores. In 2007, Caprice showed a limited but successful season at 4th level with good scores and a first place ribbon at the National show at Palgrave. Janet showed Caprice at Prix St. Georges on a limited basis in 2010. Caprice is now teaching students how to do the higher movements!

Rosalie was born is 2001 and is Janet's newest horse from Germany. Rosalie is by the very popular stallion Rotspon out of a mare by Weltruhm who is by Weltmeyer. Rosalie is a very special dressage horse who has first class basic gaits. She has natural rideability and is very intelligent. She is quite playful and bratty in nature, always wanting attention. Rosalie is a 16h compact mare who is a lot of fun to work with. Rosalie is trained to first level and schooling second level. Rosalie had a severe injury to her right hind leg last February 2008, basically degloving her lower limb to the cannon bone and severing an extensor tendon. She required 2 1/2 hours of surgery to put it all back together. Almost a year later, her wound has finally closed after 10 months of wrapping and veterinary care. She is now ready to start full training after months of very light long lining, longing and very light walk trot under saddle. It's nice to have my horse back again! Rosalie has confirmed her flying changes and is well on her way to Prix St. Georges!
Rosalie is in foal to the wonderful PRE Andalusian stallion Abanico XVIII for a 2017 foal. We couldn't be more excited and wish Rosalie all the best with her fist foal.

Currently, we have only one teaching horse. Our teaching horses are part boarded out to students who are interested in training and showing. That way, they have a consistent rider to keep them well trained and advance their skills through consistent riding and regular lessons. A few other days a week, their job is to teach outside students.
Sam is an 8 year old Thoroughbred gelding and is our new school horse. He was a previous race horse and then was trained as a hunter with some basic flat work in dressage. Sam is very quiet and is teaching the girls how to really train a horse!
O'Malley is 24 and now retired. He showed first level in 2006 with his part-boarder Barb. They did very well for their fist season together, including competing at the 2006 Trillium dressage championships. Barb and O'Malley successfully competed up to third level until 2009.

Summer who is affectionately known as Squeak, is our mini pony. She is a baby sitter and turnout buddy for Rosalie. These two are the best of friends!
San Paulo is our newest addition to our stable. He is a yearling PRE Andalusian gelding who travelled all the way from BC! He is a solid bay and a good boy. He was the Champion PRE stallion, all ages and gold medal movement winner for the 2015 Canadian National Andalusian and Lusitano Show.
