Magic "Levi" and myself have had a very good show year! After 3 shows we
qualified for the California Dressage Society Regional Championships.
If anyone watched
the news in Ca, we had have been having a heat wave. In Santa Barbara that is
normally on the chilly side, it was in the triple digits on the days I
showed....Just my luck! I rode at !;00 and 3:00 on Saturday and scored a 62.5%
on the first test placing 2nd and a 58.8% on our second test placing
5th. We blew a lead on this test, just as I asked for my canter
depart a kid flung his legs over the wall at eye level. It was in the dome that
is very small and scary, so we got nailed on that one. I am glad I stayed on
during my riding, my asthma was horrible and I could not breathe at all.
On Sunday we rode at 1:00 and again HOT and Levi
was HOT as well, he was totally amped and wanted to be very silly but it was
good for my forward movement as long as he did not explode. He was a good boy
other than backing up at x,but then he got down to business. This test was in
another arena that he had not been in yet, so I was really pleased with his
efforts to be a good boy after being such a rocket in the warmup. We scored a
62.4% and finished 4th in the Championships. We had the biggest
classes so I was really pleased. We had tons of compliments and I could have
sold him a dozen times. When I was scheduled to ride every one filled the
stands. He is quite the crowd pleaser. The pictures are from the victory lap and
they played the strip tease music and we were doing passage to the music and
trying to buck as well, he had a blast.
At one of our Qualifying shows, we scored a
on T-2 and we got a 9 on our entrance halt and Levi 's Gaits. We scored a
68.800 % on T-4, we had a small break on this test, but we ended up winning both
classes and getting high score from the show for Amateur and open.

Just wanted to give you an update on Tootsie, Tyme for Chocklate.
We entered our first combined test this weekend and came in 2nd!!!
You would be so proud of her.
I know I am. :~)
Thought you would like to know how Tyme for Chocklate is doing. Her
Dressage is coming along wonderfully, her balance, suppleness and timing is
amazing, so much we have started her over fences.
only is she more then I could ask for in a Event horse, she is my best
friend. I love her so much at times I have to pinch myself to make sure she
is mine. I can spend hours with her just watching her and playing with
her. She is the love of my life.
I was wondering if you have her previous owners email address. I believe
her name was Diane I
love to send her an update as well. I cant imagine letting a horse like
this go and not wonder how she is doing. If you have it please send it to
me. I would appreciate it very much.
Now for the pictures :~) !!
Just wanted to give you an update on Tyme for Chocklate.
I purchased her last month from Diane D. and she is settling in
beautifully. Not only is she the sweetest mare but she is so beautiful
and oh so very talented!!! She is everything I have ever wanted!!!
She was entrered in her first Dressage schooling show this last weekend
and received a score of 79.5, the highest in the show!!!
Attached are some pictures for you. I hope you enjoy them. Leslie
I hope all is well for you and your farm. Here are a some pics for your
website. I think you will like what you see!!!!!
IDCTA Intro level champ.
Last night was 4 years since he arrived at my place - pretty cool. He is
really starting to develop. Have been taking lessons with a Walter Zettl
disciple and really doing well. He is starting to get a hint of power.
We did have a few steps of passage on the trail last weekend - it was really
cool (ok the intent wasn't passage, but he offered it :))
I hope to introduce him to jumping this winter - he will dig that - it will
be his element.
Thought you would love to hear our latest update:
Stryker is the (IDCTA) Illinois Dressage and Combined
Training Association Intro Level Champion!!
We won the finals class yesterday with a score of 70%. (He
also placed first in an Intro A class and 2nd in Green as Grass
They took some great pics – when I get one, I will send it
out so that you can update your website.
He did very well – it was a big weekend for him – 2 hour
trailer ride by himself, overnight at a different farm, crazy busy show
atmosphere, 3 tests in 1 day – but he took it all in and did just super. He
is acquiring quite a
club back here.
We have been taking weekly dressage lessons with a gal that
trains with Walter Zettel. It is really rewarding and fun. His canter is
really coming along. I can’t wait to start doing the training level
classes. But I don’t want to ‘show’ until we are really solid and can get
some good scores on the movements.
I hope to introduce jumping over the winter so that we can
start to add that to our program. Hopefully next year we will be
successfully showing training level and in beginning eventing/jumper shows.
I will keep you posted - It usually takes the gal who does
the pics a few days to get them up and ready.
Hope you have had a fun summer with Levi!

Hey this is Amanda Griffin from Columbus, Ohio.
As you know nearly two years ago Cookie was injured by a
trainer. We thought he broke his hip...he didn't but had a very involved
recovery. Long story short...Cookie now called Rikki Ticki Tavi is doing
great. My daughter works for Holly Hepp in North Carolina( she has done
Rolex numerous times and was on the equestrian team) Last week after only
being ridden 60 days after his recooperation he one his pre maiden event at
the Ark in North Carolina.
Also you should know that one of your colts was sold to one
of our horses's admirers in North carolina. So their are two of your horses
in the barn.
Hope you are doing well!
Just some photo's of Logan I took last week; he's officially a yearling now; yay! And
he is just growing like a weed, got him gelded this weekend and the vet informed
me that now he'll grow even taller...great! LOL Just what he needs!
The Bay in the photos is my 15.2 Gelding so you can see how big he is already!
(and for some reason he wanted to eat the same blades of grass that Dancer was
after go figure! LOL)
He remains the perfect gentleman; I could not ask for a nicer boy! Thanks again
for producing such a fantastic horse!
Clare, Logan and Dancer.
Been a long time since an update on Butterfly. She is doing fantastic. A
couple years ago we started studying some Parelli Natural Horsemanship, and
we are having a BLAST! We are very close to completing our level 2 in the
program. Along with the Parelli work, we are also working with Nicole
Blackwell, a hunter jumper trainer at our facility. Nicole was quite blown
away at how quickly and easily the hunter work came to her, and she really
seems to enjoy it. But we all know its that good breeding that makes em so
natural. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Stryker Qualifies for USDF Breeders Championships
Sire: Butterwap Confetti
Dam: Pinjara Olddenburg
I just had to email and tell you how
much fun Stryker and I are having under saddle. It has been the most
rewarding experience. As we have been preparing for this since the day he
was delivered, it has proved to be a big yawn to him. (As it should be).
We have already had a couple of big adventures. After being on him about 10
times, I took him down to a NH trainer to double check my work and make sure
that I didn’t skip anything. Let’s just say that we passed with flying
colors. He was fantastic and I left with the encouragement to start riding
him like a ‘broke’ horse. I have also had the sensation a few times now
that he could be a reiner – he is so underneath himself – it is a blast. He
then got 1.5 weeks off due to work commitments and travel. I had one more
short ride on him last week and it was time for his first real world
adventure this past weekend. I have this belief that I really wanted our
first rides to mean something to him – not mindless figures in an arena. So
we loaded up with Wayne’s paint horse and headed out to our favorite state
forest for a trail ride on Saturday.
You would have never guessed that it was
his first ‘ride’ outside of a round pen or indoor arena. He stood tied to
the trailer while ‘activity’ was going on – no big deal. We headed out down
the trail and encountered out first monster exactly 3 minutes and 30 seconds
into the ride (I was timing us). It is deer season here and what comes
walking down the trail, but a camouflaged hunter with a portable/wearable
Stryke handled it much better than some
‘finished’ horses I have been around. We need to turn one circle and then
we stood and relaxed as the monster moved past us. After that it was cake.
He was ‘lookey’ at the all of the stumps and deadfall and shadows but still
very much wanted to go forward. He didn’t have any issues when Shooter went
out in front or if he had to lead. It wasn’t long before we were able to do
short stretches of trot. We stayed out a bit longer than I had initially
planned, about an hour total, but in that time he totally settled in and
‘got it’. Which was exactly what I wanted him to do.
I hope that your other clients have
found the same characteristics with their youngsters. He is a joy and a
gorgeous one! Here are the pics to mark our day out.

Judges comments: Balanced proportions, shows even rhythm,
light off the ground, nice canter. Elegant promising type with potential!
in mind...This was an open class, so we were competing against Warmblood
fillies from the state.
Just thought you might
like to see one of your grandson's at 31/2. This is Snowbird Confetti,
lovingly known at home as Duley. We purchased him from Eric Beene a year
ago and he is going great guns for our 16 year old daughter Devon. She took
him from a green pasture baby to Halter and jumper winner in his first year
of showing. He is a huge boy already at 16'3 and the vet saids at least
another two inches. He is curious, loving and more then willing.
He didn't really become
a part of our family until about 5 months ago when Devon was working him on
the slippery grass and he fell right on top of her. He laid there a moment,
shimmied his body enough to let her get out from underneath him, and then
still waited for her to tell him he could get up. Luckily both of them were
fine, but from that moment on, he follows her no matter where she goes.
I wanted to write to you and
tell you how wonderful Butterfly is doing. On June 19th and 20th, we showed at
the Del Mar fair 4-h show, and did wonderful. She showed in showmanship, english
pleasure and the English Equitation Medal class. She won the Showmanship, won
reserve in the english pleasure and we won the medal class. She's doing really
well on the appy circuits too. at the last show she won the color class, there
were 5 entries, and she won the hunter n hand mares, there were 4 entries.

Updates on 2 year old gelding by Pinjara-WB
Stryker was a champ! He was so
well behaved – I am so proud of him. He handled it all in stride – the bathing,
braiding, trailering, show environment, silly horses, etc. In the ring he did
everything that I asked – he posed, he strided out, etc. Of course he placed
under the big fancy warmblood but still scored a 70.9. The judges comments were
very fair – she said the he was very well balanced and functionable but needed
more thrust in his trot. He had scores between 7 – 7.8 on the test. His walk
was the highest.
I hope that your summer is going
well and that time is helping to heal the loss of your dear friend. Stryker
is growing up into a fine young man. We was gelded in early May and is
slowly excepting being a gelding. He still likes to flirt with the girls
but it is getting better. He is still holding pretty steady at 15.1-15.2
but I figure he has about 5 more years to grow.
This past weekend I took him to a
local open show. I was very proud of his performance in the English horse
halter class – I had no hopes of placing but wanted the practice of standing
still and being quite. To my surprise he stood still for the majority of
the class, called once and never droppedJ.
I was thrilled – he made quite the impression at the show for all of the
Next we entered an in-hand trail
class – he came away class ChampionJ.
I think the judge was doubly impressed as when he was walking across the
bridge and it tipped over (good construction – lol) that he didn’t panic –
he just stepped off. I plan on taking him to some of the USDF shows in
July, Aug, and Sept. I will keep you posted!
I hope all is well with your
family and your ponies!
I bought the mare Hope For Chocklate from you in
2005. Hope is doing
very well. I showed her in the USDF sport
Horse prospects last year.
She earned a 72.7 % and easily won yearling
mares, and then the all age
mare championship for the show. I was very
pleased. I am very excited
to take her to our regional championship this

We ended on our stretching circles.
Thank goodness since it was 100 degrees, Yuk!
I have attached some
proof photos of Butterfly Confetti from this year. She is doing extremely well.
She is holding her own against some of the better known hunter in hand horses.
She has earned 3 national points this year in the aphc youth color, all at one
show too. It was a four point show, she placed 1st by two judges, and 2nd by the
other two. She has a 1 point in the open aphc color, 1 point in hunter in hand
mares and one point in the open hunter in hand mares. Pretty good for a coming 3
yr old with less than a year of showing on the appy circuts. Oh, and picture

Letter from another
happy owner of a baby from Confetti Farms. !
It was a very fun and exciting weekend for us. This was Stryker's first
overnight away from home so it was a bit stressful for mom. I wasn't sure
how we would be received or if we were even in the league to compete in the
USDF shows. What a surprise - he was the hit of the show - people just
LOVED him. He can definitely hold his own against the big boys. Even some
of the big breeders commented favorably on him.
Here are some pics of him - please put his body shot on your website, so
that folks can see how Oreo's babies are growing up!! I told tons of people
about your farm and horses - you may want to do some midwest advertising
(Hunter and Sport Horse Magazine) :-)
He was just stunning at the show and very well behaved. We got a 72.9%
:-). We still placed 3/3 but we were within tenths of the 2nd place score
(I never found out what the winner had). The 2nd place horse was just
imported from Germany. Both he and the first horse had really nice trots.
As this was my first show - I learned some of the tricks for next year.
Apparently the judge, at least at this show, rewarded the horses that acted
up - granted they had their fanciest movement moments after exploding - but
I am way into manners - Stryker was the best behaved horse there. Although
he did get really keyed up before the class - I don't know if he was feeding
off of me or just atmosphere - but as soon as it was over, he deflated and
was his normal self. He was screaming quite a bit before we went in and was
pumped up, but it made for an imposing conformation pose for the 45 seconds
that he held it.....
The judge was P Hansen (he had a heavy European accent and I think he wanted
him to be a Knabstrupper, as he told me all about them.
I plan on doing the series next year as a two year old. I am going to enter
him into the All Breeds program and try for a year end award. It was a
really great experience. This one was rather scary as we had a horrible
storm come through shortly after we arrived on Friday. The tornado sirens
went of twice and we had torrential rain. Once the storm passed we
practiced in the arena and it was calf deep water in places. But despite
that, he put on his manly face and was very bold and confident. However
when he got home, it seemed like he shrunk 12 inches and became a baby again
when he was back with the boys. He was also very tired. It was a big 2
days for him. We are very proud of him!!!
Here are some great pictures of him. These were actually from the weekend
previously. I took him to an open show in a Chicago Suburb and we placed
3rd in the English Horse at Halter class:-). There were 7 in the class
There is a head shot, a confirmation type pose and one with me for size
reference. We measured him for worming last week - he was ~775 lbs, 15 h at
the withers and 15.1 on his rump. Not bad for a yearling.
I will send the pics from the show when he get them. The weather was ucky,
so they may not turn out very well - the ones attached today are pretty

and a 1st in performance horse at halter(open all breed). She did very well.
She actually seemed to like it. I had alot of people comment about her
hunter in hand performance. One person said she was the loudest hunter in
hand mare they'd seen. I am very proud of her, shes everything I've wanted
in a horse. I expect this to be a good show season with her!

competed in Pony Club’s Show Jumping Rally in the 3’3”-3’9” class, and she was
amazing. We had two clear rounds that would’ve been three if I hadn’t made a
slight directional error that gave us some time faults. But even with my
mistake, we came in second overall, first in the jump off, and we qualified for

gelding Bear Paw Confetti.
Reserve Champion at 1999 Dressage at Devon
I have enclosed a pic of Bear schooling over fences at an indoor show this winter. He was champion working hunter. We will be heading to St. Clements in a few days. It is an A show and he did quite well there last year. I have him half leased to a dressage rider and he was champion 1st level horse last week. He also got the best score in his training level combined training. I know he is ready to go on to preliminary. If my shoulder was not so bad I would give it a shot but I could not handle that kind of jumping anymore. I really want to keep these lines going. Chocolate's babies are just wonderful. O Ready is like a big dog. I read the article in the journal and was so glad to see you get some publication. They really have the movement that I feel is needed for the FEI dressage ring. I would like to sell Bear this year for sure because I am putting up an indoor and I would like to farther by breeding program. I would appreciate any help. I am asking $25,000 He is broke to death up to 2nd level dressage, eventing, hunters, and equitation, and he even has done some hunter paces. He also is the best horse I have ever rode on the trails. He is very laid back and amateur safe if you know anyone looking.
Thanks Laurie LCRESSWELL@nycap.rr.com
Chocklate's Smooth as Silk
2001 Los Angeles Breeders Classic Grand Champion 3 yr old fillies Sport Horses of Color score 70.30
Reserve Champion 3 yr old fillies American Warmblood score 69.40
Silkie is a beautiful filly with breathtaking movement. She is registered with the American Warmblood Society , has been inspected and is eligible for branding. At the inspection , she received the highest scores of the day for her trot and temperament. At the end of the show, we were asked to turn her back out into the arena (freeplay) so everyone could see her awesome movement.
8-05 Update on Silk with her new rider Kaelin
Kaelin and Silk have been busy this spring! These pictures were taken at a pony club show jumping competition. They were jumping about 3 ft. Silk has become a very natural jumper. Kaelin especially loves riding her cross country. She used Silk for her C3 rating (a fairly high level test) and they were great riding cross country. Silk is a very fast learner…all the instructors are amazed at how far the pair has come in a short time. Kaelin is going to start her eventing this fall. Will keep you posted on how she does.
No roaning yet. Still a beautiful bay! Everyone is always shocked by her breeding. Kris and Kaelin
