2016 Colt, Sir Reginald WOR, named as stallion prospect

17K-0206-large

We are so happy to present, yet another spectacular foal out of our beloved Rosentanz. At the Oldenburg Horse Breeders Society recent inspection held at the beautiful October Hill Farm in Weatherford, TX, Sebastian Rohde deemed Sir Reginald WOR a stallion prospect.  At 15 months old, Reggie is a breathtakingly beautiful colt standing almost 15 hands.  He has an incredible type, three beautiful gaits with a particularly stunning trot. Reggie is by Sir Gregory out of our champion mare, Rosentanz (See Rosentanz’s page for all of her accomplishments).  Sir Gregory is known for producing offspring of high quality, and great character.  We were so thrilled with our last breeding with Sir Gregory to Rosentanz’s full sister, Weisenblume WOR, that we decided to breed to him again! You can read more about Sir Gregory here.

At Wild Oaks Ranch our goal is to breed horses with talent, temperament, and trainability…and Reggie certainly fits the bill.  This horse has an incredible pedigree for dressage…double Donnerhall, Rubenstein, Weltmeyer, and has interesting blood going back to Bolero and Grunewald. This stunning colt is for sale to the right owner who will bring him along as a stallion prospect.  Video coming shortly. Please contact Jackie Nixon-Fulton for more information.Reggie pedigree copy

Congratulations to Benjamin Pfabe on his acquisition of Walberto

Some horses and riders are just meant for each other, and that is the way it is with Benny and Walberto (aka, Bert).  It has been a circuitous route, and a bit of a bumpy road, but now Bert officially belongs to Benny.  I am so happy with the amazing job that Benny has done with Bert over the last almost 4 years, and will be happily watching their future progress.  Good luck, Benny and Bert!  Love you both!

Royal Ramses and Soleado Sold!

Congratulations to Felix Duerr, DVM, of Ft Collins, CO, on the purchase of two of our outstanding offspring:  Royal Ramses WOR, 3 y/o Hanoverian gelding by Royal Prince out of SPS Whitney and Soleado, by Sir Gregory, yearling Oldenburg colt, out of my fabulous mare, Wiesenblume.  Felix knew Sarah and Prada in Colorado and was impressed with her beautiful mare.  I am honored that he chose two of our boys.  We look forward to following their progress.  Good luck!

Soleado, 2015 Sir Gregory colt for sale

IMG_3213

 

Wild Oaks Ranch is excited to offer Soleado (aka Sunny) for sale. This spectacular colt is the 2015 son of Dreamscape Farm’s Sir Gregory (Sir Donnerhall x Don Gregory) and our beautiful mare, Wiesenblume (Rosenthal x Wolkentanz I). He will undoubtedly be a star!

Sunny is by far the easiest colt to handle that we have ever had. He is sweet natured and likes attention. He is brave and confident. On top of all that he is an EXCEPTIONAL mover with fluid, lofty gaits, great front-end expression and a hind end to match. You can’t take your eyes off of him. The video below really doesn’t do him justice. He will probably mature to 16.2 hh.  Unfortunatley, we were unable to attend an inspection this year, but he will be registered GOV with the Oldenburg Horse Breeder’s Society of North America.

His sire, Sir Gregory, has been the leading sire of premium foals for the GOV since 2011, and is approved for breeding with 10 different registries. I chose Sir Gregory because of his character, temperament, movement, and work ethic, as described by his trainer, David Blake. Sunny is the product of embryo transfer, since his dam is my up and coming personal dressage horse. Wiesenblume is the most strikingly beautiful, affectionate, tractable mare I have bred. She makes me smile! At her very first dressage show as a 4 y/o with Benjamin Pfabe on board in 2014, she won her Training Level tests with scores of 80+% and 79+%.

We are so impressed with the Sir Gregory offspring that we bred our champion mare, Rosentanz, to Sir Gregory for a 2016 foal, and plan to breed our mare SPS Whitney to him this year.

I feel confident that when Soleado is presented for inspection in 2016 he will be considered a stallion prospect, and would like to sell him to a home that will want to keep him a stallion. $25,000.

Congratulations to Benjamin Pfabe and Ruidoso WOR! Region 9 First level Champions!

Wild Oaks Ranch is so proud of trainer, Benjamin Pfabe, and our homebred, Ruidoso WOR for winning the Region 9 First level Championships.  Benny rode a beautiful, fluid, test.  I was so impressed with the beautiful steady contact.  The tricky part was maneuvering the counter canter work as Rio has been working on the flying changes, but Benny rode it tactfully.   Ruidoso is by Rousseau out of Wiesentanz and is half brother to our champion mare, Rosentanz, who was Training level HOY.  Congratulations, Benny!  Job well done

USDF Gold Medal for Jackie and Dolci!

Shows 2014 113corrcrop 2 Shows 2014 076corrcrop 2 Shows 2014 076corrcropFinally, all the hard work has paid off!  Jackie and Dolci got their first 65% Grand Prix score in California in September, and got the second score at the Ft Worth Dressage show a few weeks ago.  The great thing is that each day we become quicker and more confirmed in the movements.  Now with the pressure off, we are having fun and continuing to progress and perfect our performance.  So many people have helped make this possible.  First, I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband, who has always been supportive and understanding of my dreams, my drive, & my determination; encouraging me to go to Florida and California to train, and most of all for purchasing my fabulous  horse, Dolomit. I have never had this kind of connection with any other horse.   I owe so much to JJ Tate who I have worked with for 5 years and who really filled in all the gaps in my understanding and training; and to David Blake who with his frequent trips to TX has continued refining what JJ  taught me and has really helped to keep us going forward.  Anne Gribbons was very influential and I am constantly drawing on exercises we worked on in FL.  My daughter, Sarah, has always been supportive and is a great eye and source of inspiration, and my voice of reason.  I wouldn’t be doing Grand Prix work if not for my Pilates instructor, Cassandra Thompson, of Cassandra’s ABSolute Pilates.  She helped me find my core and have the strength to hold it through the ride.  Lastly, Benny Pfabe has been my daily coach and eyes on the ground and has made each day coming to the barn a joy.  Thank you all so much!  It takes a village!

JJ on Rosentanz, 2011

JJ achieved her USDF bronze, silver, and gold medals by the age of 21.  After a successful young rider career and almost 3 years studying dressage in Europe with Gyula Dallos, JJ became a professional trainer at 21.  Now at 34, she is considered an up and coming international rider, being named to the USEF Developing Riders List. Her experience in the competition ring is far beyond her years, having competed over 15 horses in the FEI levels, many at the Grand Prix. In 2006, she was long listed for the WEG and was the FEI World Cup reserve rider.  She was the top placing American rider at the World Breeding Championships for Dressage Horses in Verden, Germany in 2007 with Donnermuth.  In 2009 she rode our mare, Rosentanz, to the USDF Training Level HOY title.  She currently trains with Scott Hassler, Charles deKnuffy, Debbie McDonald, and Steffen Peters.  Among her students are Katie Foster, one of the top young riders in the country, and international event rider, Allison Springer, who was champion at Rolex this year.

This clinic is full, but we encourage auditors!
