Twist of Fate Eventing 

Breeding qualityConnemaras and TB's with focus on Eventing

Skipping Class

Ginger is our 2004 TB mare by Orientate and out of the Dynaformer mare, Dynamous.  She came to us from the track as a 6 year old and was bred to my stallion, Triple Twist, to produce TF Classic Twist.  She then became my eventing partner and we have been competing since that time, in between having her and my children.  She is a very driven mare who tries her heart out for me and is an athlete in every way possible.  We've done a little bit of everything together and she puts 100% of herself into everything asked of her. She had a lovely colt in 2019 and made her eventing comeback finishing 9th at SPHT in 2020. She currently in foal to Blue Rock Fintan for 2021 and then we will get back to eventing.

Dark Horse Leap of Faith

2005 Connemara, Dark Horse Leap of Faith, is our foundation Connemara mare.  She was purchased from her breeder, Kelly Windus, of Dark Horse Station as a 4 yr old.  She is an exemplary Connemara. She was site Champion at the Region III Connemara show in 2013, site Reserve Champion at the Region IV Connemara show in 2019, competed at the BN level prior to an injury and also drives. She has had 2 beautiful halfbred foals for us as well as 3 fabulous purebreds. She has a heart of gold and is a huge part of our family.  She is the granddaughter of Domo Cavallo Praize and from the Big Bear ponies on her dam’s side.

Dark Horse Lulu

Wildwych Hazel

Hazel is a 2000 model and is currently raising our oldest daughter.  She brings some exceptional, proven bloodlines (Abbeyleix Finbar, Hideaways Erin Smithereen, Ballywhim Glynnis) to the mix and is an amazing athlete. At 20 she is still jumping in exceptional form and plugging right along.  She’s been such a blessing to my daughter and our family.  Hazel crossed the rainbow bridge in 2023 surrounded by those who loved her.

Josh's Slew

Josie is a 2003 RSPI Premium TB mare who is a maternal 1/2 sister to 4* eventer, Brandenburg’s Joshua.  She competed successfully through the Preliminary level before retiring due to an old track injury and becoming a broodmare.  She has had 5 WB foals prior to coming to us. She has had 2 lovely TB foals for us sired by TF Classic Twist and is in foal to Blue Rock Fintan for 2021.  Josie stands at 16.1 and is everything you could want in a TB mare.

Her sire’s dam has produced a successful current 3* eventer, Bishop de Selah. Her sire evented with his AA owner. “Lord was a successful 3 day horse produced successful jumpers. Lord Calando has one of the most impressive pedigrees in modern European breeding. His father, Lord, was one of the foundation sites of the Holsteiner breed with 62 approved sons including Lord Z, Lavallo, Lebus, Lantaan, Lordano and Landos. Lord carried all of the important TB blood (including Ladykiller), which so heavily influenced the breed.  On his maternal side we find Perra, who also sired Carthargo (1996 & 2000 Olympic show jumper).  Perra’s dam Kerrin was also a successful show jumper and her sire was a successful jumper and produced internationally ranked show jumpers.” -allbreedquery
