"Lyle" has been enjoying Aiken, SC!  Laine has been training him and he has finished 3 Training Level events with progressively lower dressage scores, flawless x-c rounds and rails remaining in their cups in stadium!  He is scheduled for a few more Training events and then look for him to move up to Preliminary by this summer!

The Big Island is a fabulous 2006 TB gelding who stands a regal 17.2hh and reminds me of the type of horse that is on the British Event team.  He has a steady big step and ground covering stride, he is quiet yet sensitive to the leg and is ready to move up to Training this coming spring with one Novice event behind him after only 4 months off Golden Gate Fields Racetrack!  He is a solid, substantial, yet rangy individual that absolutely looks like he will be going down centerline at KY in 6+ years.  He has 3 lovely gaits as seen on various videos on You Tube. Look under Crows Ear Farm-The Big Island and /or Laine Ashker The Big Island Woodside Horse Trials to view all 3 phases of his performance.  We need this horse on the West coast but I believe he will go East if my daughter has half the chance!  No vices.  Pure and Simply this is a LOVELY horse if you plan on competing at the most serious levels.

Jockey Club #0042558 is offered for lease as a broodmare to the stallion of your choice!  I have a gorgeous yearling out of her by Comet Shine and he is exactly what I had bred to meet the standards of an CEF event prospect!  "Paula" is a 2000 Florida bred TB mare by Proud and True and due to an racing injury she was never evented.  She is 16.2hh and a spectacular mover with big open floaty gaits.  This mare will pass the elegance and uphill stature for a very special athletic baby. I offer her as a free lease for 2 years in exchange for her impeccable care and to return home in the same condition as she left. Contact Valerie @ (530) 333-7009 or

Stunning 2007 TB gelding by Idol American starting Novice in Spring 2011.  3 lovely gaits and quiet temperament.  "Mod" is another example of a serious prospect for Crow's Ear Farm.  He is delightful to work around and has the softest mouth you could ride with your pinkies.  He stands 15.2hh and has no vices.  He is a Barbie doll horse with the GO attitude of GI Joe!  There is nothing complicated about this horse.  He is simply a class individual and the Sky is the Limit with this one.

7/30/12 Aff is on Lease thru this Fall
update 7/28/11
Aff is now in VA and will begin his fall Novice season in August/September.  Look for another incredible event prospect from CEF as he embarks on what we hope a world class future!  He is offered for sale at $15K.  

'Aff' is a 2005 TB gelding off the track this fall and is coming along lovely in his training to be a premier event prospect.  He is incredibly light on his feet and I have yet to ride a horse with a softer mouth.  He is lovely to be around and is wonderfully brave on the trails.  This is a very trusting individual.  I really like this horse and believe he will mature to be one of our 'easiest' yet competitive rides!
