On top of this, five of Fox Lair's mare were accepted into the Jumper Breeding Program - Filomena WF, Crazy For Calypso, FF Valour, Crescenda, and Looking Glass!
Due to Covid, many inspections were cancelled, which gave Fox Lair their opportunity to host our first American Hanoverian Society inspection! The inspection ran smoothly with over 20 horses in attendance.
Highlights from the inspection include:
Crescenda completed her MPT and officially became a Premium Mare Candidate! She was also named the Top Mare Performance Test Mare for the inspection.
Conspiracy Theory won the 2-year-old Futurity class!
Valaena FLS won the yearling Futurity class with Viserys FLS coming in 2nd!
Countes du Rouet FLS was named the Top Hanoverian Filly with raving reviews!
At the beginning of 2020, Crescenda was accepted into the US Event Horse Futurity. The futurity is for 4 year olds and follows each horse with monthly vlogs all the way until the championships in October. Crescenda was one of only 7 horses who were able to qualify for champs. At champs, she successfully completed all of the difficult phases. She ended up 6th overall in the futurity, which is an excellent feat for a young horse!
Our last inspection of the year was at Morven Park with Bond Girl DSF, who was purchased from Dreamscape Farm in Summer 2019 . As if the year couldn't get any better, Bond Girl DSF rocked out the jump chute with a score of 10 for ability and 9 for technique!! She is both Hanoverian Premium Eligible and jumper breeding program eligible! We cannot wait for the future with this mare!

She also completed her MPT and rocked it! She received 9s in the jump chute, which makes her eligible for the jumper breeding program.
