At the October 1, 2013 Lexington, VA, KFPS/FHANA keuring, Sjaantje Sport, driven by Suzy Stafford, had the highest Driving IBOP score, an 81.5, in North America, earning her the 2013 Dream Gait Friesians Driving Cup Award." When shown in-hand, she was upgraded to a 1st premium (1e), then as Sjaantje and I started to leave the arena, I was told to remain there, because there was yet another award for us. I was stunned when they made the announcement that she was now a Crown mare! I shed tears of joy three times that day: for her fabulous IBOP score, for her 1e premium, and for her Crown title! Our journey that started in 2009 has finally ended: Sjaantje Sport is a first premie KFPS/FHANA Friesan!
    "Dreams Come True Farm" is a privately owned barn and residence purchased in the fall of 2002. We raise and train FPS/FHANA Dutch registered  Friesians, which are for sale. Conveniently located a few miles from I-81's Exit 52 and the Carlisle exit 226 of the PA Turnpike, the property now has a lovely completely remodeled modern home, a fabulous barn with a camera monitored foaling stall, an attached indoor riding ring with rubber footing, 2 outside grass footing arenas with one being a 40 X 80m driving arena, lots of lush pastures with run-in sheds and automatic waterers, and a hacking/driving path through the woods and around the property perimeter. With Thomas' help, my dreams come true!
    I have discovered the kindness and warmth of the Friesian horse, buying a yearling in 2003 and in 2005 a 3 in 1 package from the Netherlands as a retirement present and project. Our first foals, an Ait colt and a Teade filly arrived in 2006. In 2007 Santa brought me a fabulously well-bred Goffert full-papered filly and in 2012 an even better bred Sipke filly. In March our ster broodmare will have another Sape foal.
    2009 brought many new and wonderful Friesian experiences with our entering the Friesian show world, traveling to VA, OH, and MO with some of our young horses, and proud of Sjaantje who earned 3 World and 2 National Champion Titles that year. Our evolving breeding and training operation has expanded to boarding, always have a horse on the market, and now enjoy taking a horse or two to a show.
   In 2010 Thomas & I ventured onto the show circuit with Sjaantje and sometimes taking yearling, Fancee. What an adventure and learning experience--I looked at each show as being a vacation with horses;-) In 2011 after teaming up with Suzy Stafford, we started to blow the Friesian driving world away--won National Driving Championships and Sjaantje was the 2011 & 2013 USEF high point Friesian driving HOTY. In 2012 Suzy put a FPS/FHANA driving predicate title on Sjaantje by earning 10 points from advanced level FEI #9 dressage tests, and in 2013 Suzy put a Crown mare title on Sjaantje by achieving an 81.5 score on the Driving IBOP test.    
    Having retired from teaching in 2005, I am now able to live my dream 24/7 and give our 6 Friesian horses the time they need and deserve!
