On this Christmas Eve, we wish our friends a wonderful and festive holiday season. Tomorrow on Christmas Day, we will have photos with the Giants. Let us see your holiday photos too.

Lots of love to our expanded Aspen Leaf Family!

GCH CH Lindsayleigh's Batman is going great in the show ring and recently finished his Grand Championship. He is almost 18 months old now.

Congratulations to Amy Coulter and CH Aspen Leaf’s Ghost Pepper Bjorn* for winning another five point major…and becoming a Champion! Bjorn is Amy’s first Giant, and we’re blessed to have her in the Aspen Leaf family!

As breeders, we love to see special dogs become champions, while... also being wonderful family members. Whether it’s in the conformation ring or performance sport, it’s a privilege to welcome new people to this amazing breed.

Adding to what we breed, we do selectively buy some top mares either as foals, or shortly after they are under saddle as three or four year olds.

It is truly a privilege to have three top Hanoverian mares in our string.

Premium / 1 A mare Lovely Leni (Livaldon - Floriscount), six ...years old, third / fourth level. Performance tested in Germany prior to import with top scores.

Elite Mare candidate Dante’s Princess (Dante Weltino - Wolkenstein II), five years old, third level. Performance tested in the USA after import with top scores. From the mare family of Desperados FRH (he is her uncle as their mothers are full sisters).

Premium / 1 A mare Belia (Borsalino - Quaterback), four years old, first level. Performance tested in Germany prior to import with top scores. From the 2021 best German Hanoverian mare family. Her brother by Escamillo was just licensed.

Aspen Leaf Farm has retained to develop for breeding a daughter and a son of Elite / SPS / Grand Prix mare Royal Coeur (Royal Hit - Le Coeur). Both have class I X-rays, no OCD, and the talent, gaits and character for top sport, which is what we look for in breeding.

Royal Temptation ...(sired by Tailormade Temptation) and Galaxy Coeur (sired by Grand Galaxy Coeur) definitely have a family resemblance and are a pleasure to have in the barn.

Our two bred by Aspen Leaf Farm geldings are continuing to develop super well in their training and sport.

Ten year old Dante Coeur (Dante Weltino - El / SPS mare Royal Coeur) is competing Grand Prix and seven year old Senzation (Sezuan - El mare Jamaica) is competing fourth level.

With the Giant Schnauzer National Specialty later this week, we’re crossing our paws for good luck for all of the competitors. We are cheering extra hard for Bruce (CH Lindsayleigh’s Batman), one of the newest members of the Aspen Leaf family.

To help Bruce feel at home on this side ...of the border, here’s a collage of other successful Canadian athletes to encourage him! 🍁 🇨🇦 🍁 💪

What’s better than a dog having fun! We’re so blessed that Kathryn Harris has given such a great home to Stella (Ch Aspen Leaf’s Stella D’Oro). Here they are at the Piedmont Kennel Club enjoying their first ever FastCAT.

Three year old stallion Galaxy Coeur is growing up very well! He is immensely rideable and talented, exactly what we were hoping for given he was the last foal from his mother Grand Prix/EL/SPS mare Royal Coeur.

CH Aspen Leaf’s Stella D’Oro loves the water whether fresh or salt water! Her health testing all is looking good, and we wlll repeat her hip and elbow xrays once she turns two in late November for her to have the final OFA results and a CHIC.

Breeding dressage horses of international quality.
