I wanted to give you an update on New Yorker's Champagne Garden who I call Yankee. We have made great progess and are now starting to show together. We are consistantly taking first place in Halter Mare, and in the ribbons for English Pleasure and in the top 3 ribbons in the Adult Amateur Saddleseat. She is such a sweet mare with a good mind and willingness to please. Who would have thought that a mare who was just started last fall would have come so far so quickly? I just love her! My 3 yr old daughter is learning to ride on Sea Aflame and they went into the leadline class this month and got a 2nd place ribbon. Emily loves her "Flame" and waits patiently everyday for mommy to get done riding so she can ride her Flame. You have super horses and after having these two I can understand why you have been raising saddlebreds for so many years. They are wonderful!
