Winterwood History

Winterwood’s formal journey started 30 yrs. ago in New York with the purchase of a 3 yr old Thoroughbred Gelding named Solitaire. Solitaire was bought as a hunter/jumper prospect, but his exuberance and youth had us decide to spend time with him learning Dressage. We felt this would give him some manners and focus. Solitaire's sense of humor made him quite a stand out in the ring and drew lots of crowds at shows to witness his “personality” and “airs”. Sol finally buckled down and learned to enjoy the work and together with Annmarie was INSLICO zone Champion at 2nd level in 1984. That same year our 12 yr old daughter Chiara was zone champion on her welsh pony “Cross Creek Coquette”. In those days there was no Amateur division so this little girl and her pony rode and won against adults and professionals to gain the title.  Both “Solitaire” and “Coquette” also evented but it became apparent that Winterwood’s love was in the dressage arena. Chiara went on to show her new horse “Prelude” a 3yr old appendix that we started and we had many years of fun and triumph with her.

Winterwood relocated to Ocala, Florida in 2005. Solitaire lived 30 yrs and recently was humanely put down do to the infirmities of old age.  Prelude is still part of the Winterwood family and is 28 years old. Chiara has gone on to raise her own and now we are the proud grandparents of 5. Where do the years go?

It became apparent that horses bred for the sport were much more enjoyable and Winterwood purchased its first warm blood in 1997. Landesfurst is a Holsteiner that is a pleasure to have around and has competed successfully through 4th level. 

We added two imported SPS mares to our farm and have committed Winterwood to develop and produce top quality youngsters for discriminating dressage riders.

Come and join us on our journey into the future.
