Say Hello To Gambol’s Middernacht WVH New Owners

As we retire from horse breeding and disperse our mare band we are thrilled to announce that our wonderful Midi has been sold to our friends (and students) Slava Pestov, Alexis and Renee Albaugh of Accord, New York.

“We are over the moon about Midi’s new home. The great thing about selling our horses to folks we already know not only means we are confident they are going to a great home where they will reach their potential, but also that we can keep in touch and follow along with their progress,” explained Paul Alvin-Smith.

In fact in the future the WVH Grand Prix duo Paul and Nikki will likely find themselves standing center of the ring offering some training help with Midi’s dressage work as Renee and Slava are both already on their student roster.

Midi will be joining other horses at her new home and enjoy the delights of the family’s new 70 acre farm, where a lovely outdoor arena has recently been installed.

Gambol’s Genevieve WVH aka Jen Sold

We are very pleased to announce that the beautiful Genevieve has found her new partner, Akiko Nakamachi. Akiko and her trainer Dana, work together on the classical principles of dressage at Hemlock Hollow Farm in Canton, NY, so Jen will be doing just what she was bred to do.

“ It was kismet. Akiko had contacted me late last year following the death of her horse and was interested in Genevieve. We had chatted but then I hadn’t heard more. Akiko explained that it was just too soon for a new horse as she was still grieving over her loss. Then just recently I posted Genevieve for sale online and Akiko saw her photo pop up on the ad and remembered her and contacted us. In between we did find time to give Genevieve eight longe lessons, when we had a little free time in February. When Akiko and Genevieve met I could tell it was a great match. They instantly liked each other and after a quick refresher longe lesson Akiko bought Genevieve on the spot.  Both Paul and I are super excited about this new partnership and wish them all the very best. We shall certainly miss Genevieve, but know she will have a bright future with Akiko,” said Nikki Alvin-Smith.

Georgy Girl’s Dam Versailles WVH aka Annie, Enjoys New Career as an Eventer

Georgy Girl’s Dam Versailles WVH aka Annie, Enjoys New Career as an Eventer

2017 has been a very busy year for Georgy Girl’s dam, Annie, who is a registered Thoroughbred mare. Under the tutelage of Sarah Wohrman, Annie was started under saddle in January of 2017. Through the winter months, Sarah worked Annie consistently and by March Annie was trotting ground poles.

In May Sarah Wohrman began working full time for advanced eventer, Booli Selmayr, and they worked together through the summer to develop Annie’s work under saddle.

Georgy Girl’s Dam Versailles WVH aka Annie, Enjoys New Career as an Eventer

By September Sarah was jumping Annie and lo and behold, the horse loved it. Annie has always shown great athleticism and so this came as no surprise to us at Willowview Hill Farm. Progress was made rapidly and after some trail riding and more schooling Sarah took Annie to her first real horse show at MLC Farm and completed a clear 2ft 3” class.

During October Sarah was schooling Annie at Fitch’s Corner, Millbrook event course and with regular help from Booli Selmayr the confidence of horse and rider bloomed.

At Annie’s first horse trials at Larkin Hill at Beginner Novice she took a clear in the showjumping, had a good go cross-country with one stop and overcame her nerves to complete the dressage portion. By the end of October Annie was competing again, this time at the Arena Eventing Derby at Crosswinds Equestrian Center and did wonderfully at the BN height and won the division.

Annie and Sarah also participated at the Boyd Martin Clinic in Millbrook, November 19th and will head to Aiken to continue their progress this winter season.

Georgy Girl’s Dam Versailles WVH aka Annie, Enjoys New Career as an Eventer

A full article on the ‘ Life and Times of Annie ‘ will be published December 15th at Catskill Horse magazine. From WVH broodmare producing our Gambol’s Georgy Girl, to her sale afterward to Ramzi Abuhaider as a Thoroughbred broodmare producing a lovely colt, to her new career under saddle as an eventer, Annie has a great future in front of her.
