He will need time to be brought along but we have big hopes for this lovely horse and plans are for him to start his eventing career in 2015.

Royale's Registrar


This is the kindest young horse we have ever met. He is a fancy 2011 gelding bred at Castle Rock Farm in Unionville PA, Sired by Power By Far out of Hot Dot by Leemat. Fred has an incredible loving personality. He is very willing and intelligent . Fred was in race training but was unraced due to being too slow. He is a fancy boy who will be sure to score well in dressage and make a lovely event horse, although he has a way of going that most hunter riders would be jumping in line to have. He has a ground covering walk,  lovely trot and big rocking horse canter. Fred is still hanging out growing going for walks under saddle and doing a little ground work as we wait for him to finish growing and for his growth plates to close he is going to be one tall boy!

Royale's Jack of Hearts


2012 3/4 Thoroughbred/ 1/4 Hanoverian colt Sired by War Drive out of our brood mare Grand Impression.  Jack is a fun, kind and very bold colt. At only two days old and his first day outdoors while they were being led out the paddock for the first time Jack decided the great outdoors was just so much fun and he went galloping out to the xc field all on his own. Not a worry in the world - I think he may have been trying to tell us something!!

Royale's King of Hearts


2014 full Thoroughbred Colt Sired by Yellow Creek out of our very own Caledonia.  King was huge when he was born, he was 1 week late and came out looking like he was a few weeks old.
