The Mare

Aurora was a moderate sized mare with a huge heart. Her gusto and enthusiasm for all things jumping was unmatched. Add in two teenaged girls who wanted to jump a lot and she was perfection on four hooves!

Her personality was that of the consummate professional horse. She enjoyed her work and was extremely affectionate after having a good ride.

Aurora campaigned with Anne through Prix St. Georges with good results and then became one of our beloved “family” horses – meaning that the every member of the family was her primary rider at one time or another. Bill evented her through Training Level, Emily took her Preliminary, while Ellie did Training, fox hunting and some show jumping. She retired into the breeding shed in 1993.

Her oldest surviving foal is the irrepressible and comedic Smart WF (1995) who is currently schooling Grand Prix and showing Prix St. Georges. Southern Leigh WF (1997) has been retained by Watermark Farm for breeding and has had several outstanding offspring for us. Leigh’s oldest son Woodruff WF (2004) sold as a yearling into a Grand Prix rider’s barn and is currently her delightful mount, schooling First and Second level as a 5 year old. In 2006 we were greeted by her Waldaire son Wyncote WF and in 2008 his full sister, Westerleigh WF, joined us. In 2010, Waverleigh WF arrived. In early 2011 Wyncote WF was sold into the best of homes and his new owners are keeping us all up to date with his adventures and activities in an A Show Hunter home.

Her descendants are clearly stamped with elastic gaits, calm temperaments and 'old soul' personalities. We assembled an album on Facebook that shows these qualities. It can be viewed HERE. While the stallions Aurora's daughter Southern Leigh have influenced the offspring, it is quite obvious which of our marelines they are descended from and we are very pleased to carry the genetics forward to another generation in the future.
