Le Grand Cheval - 2016 Competition Recap

April 25, 2017

Cheval is a 2012 Thoroughbred Gelding that we have been working with for over a year. He spent his first year in the Hunter ring, as a 4 year old, traveling to competitions almost every weekend. He was an absolute gentleman throughout the season and acted like he was already an old pro. 

Here are some of his 2016 highlights:

- 2016 TCA (raced in 2015) Green OTTB Champion (for ALL disciplines) from The Thoroughbred Incentive Program Year-End awards. 

- Champion in the Very Green Hunter (2ft) at The New Vocations Charity Horse Show at The Kentucky Horse Park

- 3rd place Pleasure Hunter from the Indiana Hunter Jumper Association Year-End awards

- Qualified for the 2017 Thoroughbred Incentive Program Championships at The Kentucky Horse Park

- Qualified for the NEIGH Show Series finals

- Multiple Champions, Reserves, and High-Point Thoroughbred awards throughout the year

Cheval will be competing in another full season of shows this year, both rated and local. He will be stepping up to the Baby Green (2'6") division!

STAY UPDATED! This lovely, level-headed gelding will be available for sale this summer! 

Grandview Stables Schooling Show

May 11, 2017

After a week of consistent rain, we spent a lovely weekend at the Grandview Stables Schooling Show. There was perfect weather, outstanding footing, and great competition! 

We travelled with a small group of riders this past weekend, with a mix of both hunters and jumpers. 

Le Grand Cheval took home Champion in the Baby Green Hunters as well as a WIN in the $500 GVS Hunter Derby -- his first derby! This brave 5 year old showed his talent with handy turns and even conquered going up and down a bank. 

We also had riders take home top ribbons in the Intermediate Equitation division as well as the 2'9" and 3'0" jumper divisions. Congrats on a successful weekend, team! More to come!

Canterbury Manor Schooling Show

May 16, 2017

This past weekend was all about gathering our Thoroughbred Incentive Program points. We are so thankful to have Canterbury Manor as a host for TIP shows throughout each summer!

With a sold out show, the day was long and there was plenty of competition. Our horses and riders performed beautifully and came home with several top ribbons. 

Le Grand Cheval took home champion in the Baby Green Hunters as well as Reserve Champion in the TIP Low Hunter. We had several other riders take home champions in the TIP and IHJA divisions. With two TIP shows completed this summer, we already have several riders qualified for the TIP Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in September!

Next time, find us in the ring at our NEW Summer Solstice Jumper Series hosted at Cedar Creek Equestrian Center in Fort Wayne, IN!

Brave Horse II

June 5, 2017

The Cavalletti Croft team spent the past week in Johnstown, OH for the second week of Brave Horse. Horses and riders enjoyed their time in the sun at this beautiful facility. Great footing, gorgeous ribbons, and a wonderful staff!

Le Grand Cheval took home ribbons in the Baby Green Hunter and TIP Low Thoroughbred Hunter divisions amongst tough competition. Our previously sold horse, Check Please, received Champion in the TIP 2'6" Jumpers. 

We are so pleased with our trip to Brave Horse! We encourage others to check out this new series and we look forward to attending in the future!

Detective Butters 

July 11, 2017

Butters is a talented medium pony gelding that is ready to grow with you! He has been brought along by a young junior rider and is always willing learn new things. Although he is not for a beginner rider, he would be a great mount for a pony rider that is ready to move up to an intermediate horse with assistance from a trainer. 

With several blue ribbons in both the hunter and jumper rings, Butters has a lot to offer - this pony wants to work! Perfect square knees for the hunters and slick, handy turns for the jumpers. 

Add him to your family and take him in any direction that you would like! Butters would love to have a kid to call his own!
