LEGACY OF GOLD aka "GOLDIE" -- 2007 chestnut mare, AHS by ES Liberty Gold out of EM Davinia. Star and LH pasturn white. Quality competition horse started undersaddle as a 3yo, expected maturity at 16H with large barrel.
BLOODLINES: Goldie's sire, Liberty Gold, is an outstanding young stallion. At age 2, he was the Champion of the Hanoverian Licensing at Verden, excelling in all gaits, free jumping, conformation and overall suppleness. At his Stallion Performance Testing at Adelheidsorf, he was Champion out of 42 stallions, receiving the highest scores for temperament, character, willingness to work and his individual gaits!! In 2005, he was undefeated in all of his classes both in hand and undersaddle at Dressage At Devon and garnered the award of 2005 USDF/Cosequin East Coast Stallion Champion. Goldie's dam, EM Davinia is by Davignon. Davignon was also first at his stallion testing with a score of 146.49. He is known for passing to his offspring exceptional elastic movement and powerful hind quarters. Davignon has produced not only several licensed stallions but many elite mares. Goldie certainly has inherited all the positive characteristics from both her sire and dam and clearly has the potential to obtain her elite status and to become a seriously competitive FEI mount.
BACKGROUND: Goldie was bred by Equanimity Farm Sport Horses, and like all their offspring that arrive at Thornridge Manor, Goldie was well handled since birth. She has a history of health and soundness. Because Goldie is such an outstanding mover both free and undersaddle, Equanimity has chosen to rebreed the match of EM Davinia to ES Liberty Gold. Goldie's full sibling is expected arrival in Spring 2011.
CURRENTLY:Goldie was broken to ride mid summer 2010 and arrived at Thornridge Manor in August to continue her rudimentary training with a dressage focus and to be sold. We think this mare is just awesome in every way: movement, mind and conformation. It is impossible for us to decide which gait is her strength as all 3 are amazing. Her walk has tons of reach and natural swing over the back. Her trot and canter are equally suspended, cadenced, uphill and ground covering. She has a perfect neck set and is already reaching happily toward the bridle. Wow, what a horse....we are thrilled that Thornridge Manor is associated with such a talent.
GOLDIE: Free Sept 2010
FUTURE:Goldie will be ready to shine in the 4 YO classes in 2011. Like her sire, her gaits are able to garner high marks, so expect her to qualify for these championships. Goldie has true FEI/Grand Prix potential. After AHS inspections, we would be shocked if Goldie did not make elite status. She is a super broodmare prospect after her show career settles. With her athleticism, Goldie should be a talented jumper as well -- we will make updates after show season settles and we have time to free jump. Until Goldie sells, her dressage focused training will continue. Her sale price will continue to reflect her training level and show experience. If you would like to win a lot of ribbons and trophies, then Goldie is the horse for you!!!!!
