Folly's Rock

Rock King x Bohemond



Standing at a big, powerful 16.3hh Folly is one of my foundation mares and the cherished dam of GFS Fire and Ice. Bred by the legendary Rock King and out of a mare by the prolific sire of eventers; Bohemond, she is 75% thoroughbred with 25% Weatherby's approved Connemara thrown in to the mix! This mare is highly athletic with an enormous jump and lovely straight, elastic movement. Highly intelligent and incredibly brave, a misdiagnosed injury curtailed a brief but promising eventing career and thus began her highly successful career as a broodmare.

'Shadow' as she is known here is a very lovely KWPN mare with the most incredible jumping pedigree. This Indoctro sired mare is out of a Corland/Nimmerdor Keur awarded mare.

She is by the Danish WB stallion Crown's Ace of Pearl and out of Hubbly Bubbly TB mare on whose dam side goes directly back to the great Secretariat. Tall, athletic and highly intelligent. This wonderful mare is a fantastic mover, wise beyond her years and a friend to everyone. Her foals are simply breathtaking in every facet of their physical appearance, athleticism and temperament


Al Pacino W/Andiamo Z/Julio Mariner/Ramiro Z x Aiglon Rouge/Enrico



'Inca' as we have named her due to the inability to correctly pronounce her registered name, is simply a true 'lady', the most incredibly gentle and kind mare. She has thrown foals of consistently exceptional type and potential, each blessed with her genuine character and calm temperament. Inca has enormous presence as well as stature. She has a floating way of covering an enormous amount of ground in a very short time without appearing to move much. Her pedigree boasts some of the most accomplished International Grand Prix show jumpers on either side. She arrived with us following a fractured shoulder and damaged hip from which she recovered under our care as a four year old.

Pepper has been here since a week old. She arrived very unwell and managed to worm her way into our lives, hearts and family in a very short space of time! This lovely young mare is full of fun and enormous energy. She adores people and relies on us totally to extract her from all the trouble she regularly finds herself in through her great sense of adventure!

Pepper has foaled four incredibly special foals for us, all blessed with her tremendous athleticism, expressive paces and elegant presence. She is also out of a genuine branded and Graded Kinsky warmblood mare and is adorned with the distinctive highly metallic coat that is quite blinding when touched by the sun!( *many falsely claim to own Kinsky warmbloods, but merely Czech breeding does not make a Kinsky! This legendary breeding program is closely guarded and strictly monitored with only the true Kinsky registered and branded with the wolves teeth that mark this rare breed.)

GFS Phoenix (2010)

This is another of our Irish imports. Bred by James O'Conner, she is by Crown's Ace of Pearl and out of a superb thoroughbred mare by Close Conflict/Lord Gayle whoseancestry goes back to Mill Reef, Shirley Heights and Secretariat. Phoenix is a very fast, nimble young horse with lovely paces, explosive power and the kindest and most biddable nature ever. An absolute sweetheart who has produced the calibre of foal we had both hoped for and expected from these bloodlines. Each clearly having great potential as future eventers.

It's Magic

Hogwart x Chemintz/Cassini I



'Madge' as we call her is a remarkable mare of both quality and talent. Graded into the Westfalian Head Stud Book, she is by Hogwart (Concorde/Voltaire/Nimmerdor) and out of a Cassini/Caletto mare. Madge is a fantastic big moving mare with powerful, compact conformation, a stunning head and great attitude.  Prior to retrement due to a bone chip, she was proven in competition to BSJA Foxhunter (see video link beneath). This beautiful horse has a wonderful nature and a lovely intelligent willing outlook. Her foals are superb.

Her sire Contendro I is one of the most prolific sires of top performance horses across the spectrum of Olympic disciplines which includes over 87 top show jumping progeny in competition. Her dam lines are equally impressive with the addition of some renowned dressage lines of importance.

As expected, her foals with us to date have been nothing short of outstanding. Each blessed with absolutely superb paces and movement, exceptional natural athletic prowess and intelligent, willing outlooks.

GFS Golden Willow

Vangelis x Farney Clover/Errigal Flight




This very correct and beautiful young mare is by th highly talented Equus Kinsky jumping stallion, Vangelis. Sadly he ws a horse who passed away to young. However, during a brief competition career that spanned a mere six months, he accumulated 92 points jumping double clear every time from a starting point of 1.10m which swiftly reached 1.30m! A rare talent.

Willows dam is by Farney Clover/Clover Hill; a legendary Irish stallion who was a proginator of horses that attained meteoric success in all three main disciplines with over 90 show jumpers of note. Her dam sire; Errigal Flight, a noted sire of both eventers and show jumpers was by the other famed Irish stallion and sire of phenominally successful competition offspring, King of Diamonds!

A hugely exciting combination of the best  of the versatile, athletic Kinsky warmblood and the very best of the powerful, lion hearted and incredible versatile Irish Sporthorse as well as an amalgamation of two breeds most noted for their amazing temperaments and willingness under saddle.

This kind, athletic and stylish mare has produced three correct, athletic foals of enormous potential and great character.

In foal to GFS Lord of the Danc 2018


This is a very striking mare with the temperament of a saint and bred from exceptional Eastern European bloodlines. Her sire, Arktos is an International Grand Prix show jumper anf her dam lines boast both important Trakehner ancestry and the rare Polish Weilkopolska bloodlines, highly prized for their exceptional temperaments and high trainability across the discipines.

'Delphi' has produced three rather special foals for us to date, each have been blessed with their dam's temperament and super attitude.

Treliver Delphine

Treliver Decanter/Dimaggio x Salieri/Donnerhall



This big, powerful mare is an absolute force of nature! Bred with enormously exciting dressage AND show jumping bloodlines, she has huge movement and incredibly impressive paces. A mare with huge presence and yet an absolute angel to handle in any and all situations. She has exceptional manners and a kind outlook being very people oriented and gentle.

'Delphi II' is by the Grand Prix Elite dressage stallion Treliver Decanter, in turn by the illustrious Dimaggio. Her dam lines are no less impressive as her sire, Salieri is a show jumping International and her dam sire none other than the Elite dressage stallion and sire of over 100 top dressage offspring, Donnerhall!


Camaro x Hurikan/Landruff - Landgraf



Charisma has been with us since weaning. Purchased from Germany, she was bred as a serious eventing prospect. Her sire Camaro is one of only two Elite coloured Trakehner stallions. Twice a Young Horse Championship qualifier for the German Bundeschampionate. He is both an advanced eventer and show jumper. His sire, Le Duc was Reserve Champion winner at his performnce test with unprecedented scores of 10 for character, efficiency of movement and trot. He scored a 9 in all other catagories. A Grand Prix dressage stallion with a performance index of 146, his dam was a consistent producer of Performance Test winners.

Her G.Grandsire, Anduc, a son of number one Trakehner stallion in the World, Marduc was another Elite stallion renowned for producing progeny of outstanding temperament and rideability.

A freak stable accident as a three month old, ended the competition dreams of Charisma's breeders, we were contacted and immediately purchased her as a future broodmare for the enhancement of our exising breeding program.Charisma is tall, powerful and a very impressive mover. She has exceptional conformation being very much of  a jumping 'ideal' in the way she is put together. 

Her first foal is simply outstanding!

Sahara (2014)

Sahara is a tall, elegant and athletic filly by the Elite Grand Prix dressage stallion Treliver Decanter. She has her sires deep golden coat and beautiful head. Her dam Ambrosia is an Elite Graded SH(GB) mare by the Saddlers Wells bred stallion and prolific sire of top eventing horses, Accondy. Her dam lines are World Cup I, Grand Prix dressage horse and sire of many top dressage offspring.

Sahara came to us as a two year old, she is a very impressive mover, as expected from her illustrious pedigree. She is definitely a one to one horse and I believe will be suited to a lady looking for a top riding club prospect, eventer or exciting dressage prospect. She is well handled and good to handle, enjoys attention but can be a bit of a madam!


Diamond Green/Green Desert/Danzig x Rahy/Blushing Groom/Ack Ack



KissMe is quite the most uniquely and beautifully marked Weatherby's registered thoroughbred mare. Absolutely no mixed breed blood. Exceptional not only for her extreme sabino markings, she also has two china blue eyes!

As fast as lightning, this mares feet are rarely on the ground long! She is ultra athletic, with huge stamina and the ability to turn on a 'spinning sixpence' and a simply amazing character, full of fun, mischief but ultimately a real people person.

She is by the multiple winning racehorse Diamond Green (Green Desert/Danzig/Northern Dancer) and out of a Rahy mare with lines boasting multiple Group one winners and ancestry tracing back to War Admiral.


(Karandasj/Fedor/Darco x Hofnar/Amor/Nimmerdor)



'Zievident is a KWPN registered mare with a consistent BSJA track record with double clears in Discovery and who demonstrated effortless scope and style over her jumps. Easily schooled over 1.30 at home, she arrived here having found herself in the wrong home and as luck would have it found her way to me!

She is by the KWPN Keur awarded stallion Karandasj (Fedor/Darco). A stallion renowned for his outstanding temperament and rideability, he is a top WBFSH ranked sire of both eventers and show jumpers.

Karandasj started his career becoming Champion of the Performance tests with top marks for jumping and 8's and over in all additional scores.

By the KWPN stallion Hofnar, a horse renowned for his breathtaking movement.

Previous GFS Broodmares

We have been fortunate to have been the proud owners of so many broodmares over the years, some have moved to pastures new and many have sadly passed. Each have been cherished members of our family and brought tremendous joy. 

I will continue to add these special horses, but have started with the very special two ladies who have produced our two junior stallions; GFS Eskimo Jo and GFS Lord of the Dance.

I have many more old friends to add but beneath are too very special ladies who have produced two of our junior stallions, now Graded and Licensed with AES

N-She's All - 'Aunty Alice' (1998 - 2014)

Corrado I/Cor de la Bryere/Capitol I x Landgraf/Caletto/Ladykiller



Dam of GFS Eskimo Jo

'Aunty Alice' was so called due to her gentle loving nature and the enormous love and protection that she showed all of the foal and youngsters. Standing a little over 17.3hh, her statueque beauty and huge presence made her stand out from the herd at any distance. She was a horse with no compare, her nobility was undeniable.

She was a Premium Graded Holsteiner mare and ex show jumper with placings German Kl.L + Kl.M. Her breeding read like a who's who of equine superstars. By Corrado I (Cor de la Bryere/Capitol I) and out of  a Landgraf/Caletto mare. 

This mare was a real character and an absolute darling, always to be missed and never forgotten. We have been blessed with a wonderful colt, her last foal whom we retined. 

GFS Eskimo Jo was Graded and Licensed by the AES in 2016 as a two year old and is a worthy son of this great mae with absoutely outstanding Grading scores and his first two offspring on the ground in 2017.

Malibu Breeze

Malibu Galileo/Delta x Blushing Scribe/Super Concorde



Dam of GFS Lord of the Dance

As beautiful in nature as to the eye. This much loved mare was the epitome of the dream horse of so many. A tall, powerful and athletic mare with an absolutely unbelievable temperament. An amazing mother and the dam of two Licensed stallions, GFS Diamond Echo and GFS Mistral before producing our own GFS Lord of the Dance who Graded successfully and with hghly impressive scores with the Anglo European Studbook as a two year old in 2016.

Breeze was by the 17hh stallion Malibu Galileo a hugely promising young eventing stallion who was tragically lost as a young horse just as his career was starting so well. He dams lineage are of Group one thoroughbreds and her ancestry in five generations was 62.5% TB/Arab which made her an excellent choice as the dam of future eventing offspring.
