We are thrilled to have a full brother to Axios and Own The Night! While his brothers are jet black Ben has a small star and white fetlock. He is as refined and beautiful as all of Obi’s foals. Ben already has multiple world championships added during his stellar show career!
Bravura won his first world championship as a three year old after he had only showed very infrequently on the West coast. This large world champion Futurity classic pleasure driving three year old class was deep with beautiful horses. He was a pro! Bravura won his second large and competitive world championship in 2007, and he has since won multiple regional and world champion titles for several owners. He is now owned by Brenda Varney, and we wish her many more victory passes on Micky!
Carnegie Hall’s World Champion record speaks perfectly for this dynamic horse. He is the first foal out of this cross. “Rick” started his World Champion career with Bob Hughes of Blackridge RJH winning the World Champion Pleasure Driving Two Year Old in 2003. He continued his World Champion career for Dr. William and Shelly Sibler, for Tom and Stephanie Connor, and currently for Dan and Leslie Kelley. We wish Rick and the Kelley family many tricolor victory passes.
Madison exceeded our expectations when she won the 2011 Weanling Gala class for her debut as weanling! It doesn’t matter if she’s entered in In Hand or performance, she has exotic presence in every class. Madison’s swanlike neck and flagged tail show the judges that she has show horse attitude. We wish the best of luck to Catherine with Madison!
Lillabette is a product of a special cross between our multi-world champion Dragonsmeade Icon and our world champion producing mare Dragonsmeade Valkyrie. She is chestnut with unique chrome that makes her stand out. At the moment she’s destined for the park saddle three year old division. Congratulations to Rebecca and Irina Shavlik on their purchase of Lillabette! We wish you all the best with this flashy mare!
We were so excited to try a new cross with our Blue Hen mare HVK Obsidian! We decided to cross her to Jake Ryan, and Leo is better than we imagined! He is big, stretchy, and has loads of quality! We are excited to see him mature!
Since Jubilee was born he’s been a star! He has a lot of personality, and he also thinks well of himself. He started his show career off well for us winning the 2011 World Champion Classic Pleasure Driving Jr. class and the Grand National Classic Pleasure Driving Four Year Old class. We sold him to the Richard Hansing family for Lilly Hansing to show. Together, this fabulous team has gone on and surpassed all expectations! We are cheering for them every step of the way!
We have been thrilled with Fusion. He is a true park horse in every sense and he commands attention every time he enters the ring. He is one of the best horses we’ve bred. Among his many regional championships all over the country Fusion is the 2007 World Champion in the Amateur Park Harness division and is also the 2008 Reserve World Champion in Open Park Harness. We have been lucky to have him sire two colts and one filly for our farm. He has proven to be an excellent sire. Jr. is one of our family favorites!
Once and a lifetime horse… he is forever missed.

The first foal we have out of Aria, by Axios, is Merida! She has a beautiful shoulder and a long length of leg and neck. Her motion is crisp and clean. She is one of our favorite fillies from the 2013 foal crop! Merida’s head is the perfect combination of her grand sires And The Beat Goes On and Beethoven. We also see a lot of her maternal grand dam Queen’s Estelle in her look too.
