2008 OTTB chestnut gelding
I bought Norman in the fall of 2011 as a 3 year old off the track and from day one he has been quiet and easy going. It was this quiet nature that convinced me to buy him with the plan to resell within the year. At the time, I was working for Phillip Dutton and was fortunate enough to have him and his team guide me in bringing Norman along to his first few events. He took quickly to eventing, making his USEA debut at one Novice event before moving on to Training level. At this point, I had only competed at Training level myself and so I decided to keep him, just to see how far we could go. From there, I moved on to Ohio, Kentucky, Florida, and back to Ohio with Norman and Lilo (trusty supervisor) in tow. I balanced my teaching and riding career with Norman’s competition schedule. I was lucky to find employment with people
(like Nori Scheffel and Margaret McElhany) who supported me and the little orange horse so I could continue to chase my competitive dreams. With guidance from my coach, Cathy Jones-Forsberg, in the summer of 2014 we made the move up to the Preliminary, fall of 2015; the move up to Intermediate, and summer of 2017; the move up to Advanced with several FEI competitions scattered throughout.
There have been bumps in the road and plans that didn’t pan out, but the process has taught me that the journey is not a straight line. I am so fortunate to have found such an incredible, athletic partner whose enthusiasm for jumping is matched only by his love of cribbing. If you are interested in becoming a part of the team and joining us on our journey please contact me to learn more!

Training Level event horse
Looking for a flashy partner to turn heads at the event and then enjoy a leisurely meander on the trails the next week? "Nugget" is your guy! A competitive training level event horse who is looking for his next home. He would happily continue to event or could also make a career change to pure dressage (comfortably schooling all 2nd level movements). He is a dream to ride around a dressage ring and a blast cross country. Does all three phases in a snaffle and is the same horse at shows and field trips as he is at home. Loves to hack on the trails alone or in a group but is most happy snuffling through your pockets for treats. Video shows XC and SJ rounds from 2020 as well as a full dressage test at the end (scored a 23). Priced in the lower mid 5's which reflects his owner's desire to find his most perfect match! Contact Jane today to set up an appointment to meet this handsome Irish lad.
