Rembrahnt: National Champion, USDF Dressage Sport Horse Foal!  
This spectacular Hanoverian colt (Rotspon x Wiesling/Wolkentanz x MS Dividende) earned top marks in his weanling classes and was the 2014 Adequan/USDF Champion Horse of the Year in Dressage Sport Horse Breeding, Current-Year Colts. He topped a field of prestigious colts with a very impressive median score of 81.05%. At the Borderline Dressage & Breed show in Tryon, he was champion foal. At Dressage at Devon,  he was Reserve Champion in the Foal class with a score of 82.10%. He was  top foal at his Hanoverian inspection at Sullivan Farm.
And we are repeating this same fabulous cross again this year, breeding Wiesling again to Rotspon to produce a full brother or sister for the very talented Rembrahnt!   
Rembrahnt has been sold, but his older sibling Qwin is available for purchase!  See below.

     Congratulations to Dylan Phillips and Bumble Bee,
        the 2014 Jovee Farm Junior Pony Champion!

   The 2014 Jovee Farm Pony Series Dressage Championship was awarded to the highest-placing pony competing in at least three of four USDF-recognized shows. These shows were also “partner shows” for the 2014 National Dressage Pony Cup, which Jovee Farm also helps to sponsor. To
 learn more about the National Dressage Pony Cup and see the 2014 year-end results, visit www.nationaldressageponycup.com.
   In 2014, the Jovee Farm Adult Pony Championship was not awarded because no pony ridden by an adult competed at the minimum number of shows.  As the number of adults riding ponies is growing, we expect to have plenty of adult competitors in 2015! 

   In 2015, we are proud to sponsor: 

  • Jovee Farm High Performance Awards, offering Champion and Reserve Champion awards for the highest scoring adult and junior riders at  each of these shows: NCDCTA Capital Dressage Classic, Dressage at Lexington, NCDCTA Labor of Love,  Raleigh Summer Dressage and NCDCTA Harvest Moon. 
  • Based on the scores from the five shows listed above, we will award a year-end Champion and Reserve Champion for Junior and Adult riders.
  • In addition, we will sponsor a Pony Breed Championship class at Dressage at Lexington. This will be open to all ponies competing in any in-hand breed class. 
FOR SALE:  Princi (Popeye X Clanfair Mary Kay) 2010 ISR Sportpony Mare. 
Started under saddle in 2014, Princi has a great work ethic and nice uphill balance. She's currently working toward Training Level and beginning leg-yielding.  Princi finished 2013 as the USDF All Breeds Award Reserve Champion for 3 year old ISR/Oldenburg Mares, and she has earned her first star and her "premium mare" designation from the ISR/Oldenburg Registry for her great conformation score at her mare inspection in 2013 at Chestnut Lawn Farm.
All our young horses are for sale, to the right homes. Visit our website at www.joveeponyfarm.com for more information. Please call 336-669-1565 for prices.
FOR SALE:  Phenix (Popeye x Clanfair Mary Kay) 2012 ISR/Oldenburg NA Sportpony colt. In 2014, he was National Reserve Champion, Oldenburg NA All-Breeds Awards, Two-Year-Old Colts—repeating his win as a weanling.  He displays great gaits, receiving a 9 for his walk's clear rhythm and ground-covering ability. Comments on his trot:  "good use of hind legs, uphill tendency, strong loin and build." He qualified for the GAIG USDF Breeders Championship at Devon with a score of 79.7, and at Dressage at Lexington he won the Pony Championship class.  Now almost three years old, he's matured nicely into a well-balanced colt with superb movement.

Update: Jovee Mercedez

Kelli in Pell City, Alabama, the owner of Jovee Farm's Mercedez (Makuba x Clanfair Mary Kay), reports that her lovely mare finished third for 2014 in the Welsh Pony Club standings for beginner dressage, with an average score of 65.9, less than three points below the first-place winner.  "I'm very proud of my girl," Kelli says. "She continues to be a joy to me.  My husband just grins because he's never seen me happier with a horse.   I can't wait to get going for spring.  We will definitely be tackling training level then and my goal is to qualify for regionals."

Congratulations, Kelli! 
Mercedez is a half-sister to Princi, Phenix and Pepper.

Update: Maxentius

Toni from Greensboro, NC, Max's owner, reports:  "Max is doing great!  He has really turned out to be perfect for me, fancy enough for dressage and quiet for trail riding. I tell people many Max stories which I'm sure they are sick of hearing but he has the funniest personality I have ever experienced in a horse. He is a blast and getting him was the best decision I've made in a long time."

Maxentius (Makuba x Fallon's Black Beauty) is by the same stallion as Jovee Mercedez.
