Wallstreet Romance aka "Romy":(ES Wallstreet Kid x EM Davignette): 2003 Black, Proven Broodmare, Registered American Hanoverian Society. Facial Star & Stripe, RH coronet, ermines. 16H at full maturity.
BACKGROUND:Romy was bred by Bae Prid Farm/Pat Limage and she has many multiple full siblings that are competing at FEI dressage levels. Equanimity Farm/Diane Vickery purchased Romy as a weanling, as a broodmare prospect, for her discerning breeding program. Romy produced 3 lovely foals for this Hanoverian Breeding Business. But, in 2009, Phoebe met Romy, in foal, and decided to purchase her!!!! We had a feeling that her foal, due in 5 days, was going to be beautiful, so we took a risk -- we certainly were not disappointed!!! Romy, as a 7 yo, was broken to ride in 2010 with the intent to sell her -- after all, we are NOT breeders here at Thornridge!!! Romy was so incredibly quick to learn and has an unsurpassed work-ethic. She would have excelled in either top level dressage or top circuit hunter jumpers. We have some included some photos, in this gallery, of working undersaddle, for ONLY 2 MONTHS!!! But, Phoebe had fallen head-over-heels for "her girl" that we decided not to EVER sell her!!! So, the business decision was made to partner with Hawks Hollow Farm/Chris Krompf to begin breeding Romy again! Since this time, Romy has resided in NY full time and we miss her every day but, we feel, that she is in the BEST hands and breeding operation.
ROMY's PRODUCTION RECORD:
2007 BONNIE LASS:Bay Filly By Bordeaux -- Bred by Equanimity Farm and bought by Thornridge as an unbroken 3 yo. We unexpectedly encountered a quick and tough decision to resell Bonny -- but, when we met Bonny's first potential buyer -- the decision was made that this was a match made in heaven and we were thrilled to be a part of Jen & Bonny's journey together!!! Owner Jen Seurich, along with her trainer, have been winning with Bonny, since she was only 4yo, in top A-Circuit Hunter Jumpers. Bonny competes under the show name of "Bliss." Jen (& hubby, Scott) is Bonny's lifetime owner and has become a LIFETIME FRIEND of both Phoebe & Claudia!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2008 DEVON:Black Filly By Devon Heir -- Bred by Equanimity Farm and bought as a weanling by lifetime owner, Lauren Fithian. Devon has had a beautiful VA farm to grow up on and is the love of Lauren's life!!! Romy/Devon can be credited for bringing Lauren and Phoebe together as lifelong friends, too. Thornridge will continue to post updates about this young-partnership and their rise, to inevitable, stardom. The lovely young lady, Lauren, and her own Devon, enjoy pleasure riding and have dressage show ring aspirations together. Phoebe would love to ride with this pair and do a FULL-SIBLING PAS DE DEUX -- our Calvin is Devon's Full Sibling!!!! But, no matter what happens, Thornridge is thrilled to follow the progress of Lauren/Devon -- all horses should have the opportunity to be cared for in the way Devon is loved!!!!!!!!!!!
2009 DRESSED TO KILL aka "CALVIN" aka "OUR PET EXTRADOINARE":Black Gelding by Devon Heir. Our Calvin was bred by Equanimity Farm. Thornridge purchased Romy and her 2009 foal a mere 5 days prior to his due date....Calvin was born 12 hours later!!!!! And, did we get hit with the lucky-stick, or what!! Nice or not, Calvin was purchased in celebration of our farm's 10 year anniversary and he continues to bring an unsurpassed level of joy to our lives. He showed two times as a weanling -- winning his age group at Stone Tavern 2009, ribboning 7th in his age group at Dressage at Devon Breed Show and, subsequently qualifing to, compete that same evening in the DAD East Coast Breed Championships. Also as a yearling, he attended DAD, scoring well enough in his age to qualify and ultimately achieve 5th place in the highly coveted DAD East Coast Championships for Colts/Geldings!!!! He did not leave our Thornridge as a 2yo or 3yo. BUT, he was placed undersaddle, with great ease, as a 3 yo. And, we are tickled to report that in the spring of his coming 4yo-year, he has WON TRAINING LEVEL CLASS at his first performance recognized show!!!! But, win or lose, Calvin will always be special to Thornridge -- he is our GRAND BABY SUPREME all the time, and he, as we have recently come to realize, has a HUGE FAN FOLLOWING!!!! Please know that Calvin's continued life course will be updated on the Current news section of our website -- GOOOO CALVIN!!!!!!!!!!!!
2010 & 2011:Romy was not even attempted to be bred. Thornridge was just trying to figure out what to do with her future. Luckily, we decided not to sell her, as that had been our original plan! We just could not let go of Romy's-Specialness and are so grateful to have decided to keep and to continue breeding this incredible producer!!!!
2012 RIALTO HHF aka "RayRay":Black Colt by Rascalino, Bred and owned by Hawks Hollow Farm/Chris Krompf. Rialto has a wonderful 2012 Dressage Breed Show record, including DAD, as a weanling and is looking amazing as a yearling...so he will be showing again in 2013. DON'T LET THIS YOUNGSTER PASS YOU BY -- HE IS FOR SALE!!!! Please contact Chris directly.
2013 VICTORY ON WALLSTREET aka "VIC":Chestnut Colt bred by Phoebe/Thornridge and bought by Leeandra Wesley, at a mere 5 days old. Vick's 2013 schedule includes his Old/NA inspection and competing at Dressage at Devon Breed Show. Thornridge suspects that Vick, much like Calvin, will have a life-long, huge audience/fan base!!! Shucks, all of Thornridge LOVED Vick even before he surprised us with his red-headed-self!!!!! Please know that Vick's journey will be updated on our Current News Section -- GOOOO VICK!!!!!
