Ahsianita proves her worth as both a broodmare and a performance horse
Ahsianita made her debut in the show ring at the RMI Mid-Florida Series December show in the 1.0m and 1.10m divisions with several clear rounds and good ribbons including a 2nd place.
She then went the following week to Tampa to debut in the 1.15m division in which she delivered a very positive round.
Ahsianita will return to RMI this weekend before taking a month long break before starting up again at the HITS Florida circuit in January.
C-Quito proves to be quite popular amongst the Sakura Hill Farm mares and clients.
We are happy to announce that Sakura Hill Czola's (by Alla 'Czar) 2012 foal by C-Quito is now under contract as an in-utero option taken by a prescient person in Tennessee. Also, another very prescient lady in Tampa has opted for a custom 2013 foal from Kaiserin (by Kaiser de la Cour) and has chosen CQuito as the sire. Odds are that it will be an elegant gray with exceptional conformation and the scope to do the Derbies! We look forward to what both of these crosses will produce.
Wyoming (the "Ming " of the Ming and Ping duo of 2010) stood out from Day One because of his elegant exterior and statesman-like demeanor. Nothing has ever perturbed Ming. He quickly gave evidence of becoming a very big boy indeed and his affectionate nature made us concerned that he find a partner that would forge a long-term working relationship with him to develop him to his potential.
We are truly thrilled that just such a person has purchased him and - lucky us!- lives just north of us and for the forseeable future, Ming will be staying at Prosperity Farms with his buddy Ping et al. Watch for him at the October Young Horse Show with us and his new owner!

Sakura Hill Farm attends the 2011 KWPN-NA Florida Keuring
Grenache S (Chello III VDL x Ulysses m2s), Stamroos W
(Heartbreaker x Ramiro) and Ahme P (Olympic Ahorn x Olympic Ferro) all attended a very successful KWPN-NA keuring held at Pennock Point Sport Horses in Reddick, FL. We are so happy for Grenache S and his California owner! He stole the show with his youthful yet purposeful movement and got First Premium at the KWPN keuring at Pennock Point yesterday. The youngest to be inspected, he strutted his trot up and down the arena like a pro under the capable handling of Janko! Grenache S is sired by the VDL stallion Chello III and out of Ultra-niki m2s Z. The first "second generation" foal bred by Sakura Hill Farm, he was imported and purchased in utero.

Sakura Hill La Czaritza
(by Crown Affair) did us, her new owner,, and her sire and dam proud by nailing top scores at her BWP inspection. The 82 for the regular book and the 84 for the Hunter book should give her scores among the top 2 or 3 in the nation given out to all horses for 2011.

Sakura Hill Farm presents our newest broodmare/sporthorse addition-- Stamroos W (Heartbreaker x Ramiro x Uppercut xx)
Sakura Hill La Czaritza Sold to Prosperity Farms
We are pleased to announce that Sakura Hill La Czaritza
has been sold to Prosperity Farms. We and Andrea will have an opportunity to watch this filly show what she is made of at close hand at the Hunter Breeding classes and beyond! We are so excited to be able to have her stay so near with those who have known her since birth!
Czola never disappoints! She has had outstanding foals by Lotus T., Cunningham, and now Crown Affair.We bred this foal with the high hopes of obtaining a filly for our broodmare band and, of course, to have fun with at the shows - hunter br...eeding and hunter rings. Czola's Alla'Czar on top with the good TB on the dam side is a perfect foil for Crown Affair with the direct Cor de la Bryere and Capitol bloodlines. Crown Affair's recent successes in the hunter derbies are an additional +. We are VERY excited by this filly--La Czaritza!
Sakura Hill Farm and Lake Ridge Farm partner up to host the Mount Holyoke Dressage Team Practice in Preperation for IDA Nationals
Sakura Hill and Lake Ridge Farm, owned by Cheryl Youngman, hosted the Mount Holyoke Dressage Nationals Team practice on April 29th. Their 5 riders rode three of Lake Ridge Farm's horses as well as Ana Bella and Ahme of Sakura Hill Farm. A productive and fun morning was had by all and it was especially nice for Monica to see some of her old classmates from college.
It's a girl!
We are stunned to have a filly- Sakura Hill Cantanita (Olympic Canturo x Ulysses M2S). We were all geared up for a colt! Many many thanks to all those who have sent congratulations and smileys! It is heartwarming!
Sakura Hill is proud to present our newest addition to our broodmare band >Sakura Hill Keiserin "Kassie" by Kaiser de la Cour (Verdi x Kayack x Starter) out of a Lantaan (Lord x Liguster) mare.
Her 2011 filly, Sakura Hill Kallanica "Kalla", born 15 days ago by Debbie Stephens' Grand Prix Jumper Callaway (by Calando I).
Sakura Hill Farm is happy to announce that Sakura Hill Zorriola has been purchased by Brazilian grand prix rider Sergio Campos. We are eager to see them compete and go up the levels at this year's Florida circuit.
It is wonderful to realize how many friends and fans Zorri has made for herself over the years, especially in Mount Holyoke- where she and Monica were the entertainment of the season her first year- in more ways than one-and here in Florida. Always herself, she does command attention! We cannot read the future but we are convinced that if the past is any prediction, hers will be a good one.
