Limestone Ivy

1997 Dutch Warmblood Canadian Warmblood Mare



Congratulations to Ms Hailey Conium of Sydenham Ontario!

"Ivy" is a stunning 10 year old grey, 16.2hh Dutch Warmblood/CWB mare (Saluut II /Saluut /Ronald /Ramiro).

Bred and owned by Kathie and Francis Groenewegen of Limestone Stables in Kingston, Ontario, she was broken lightly as a 4 year old and was then integrated into their breeding program, and had 4 beautiful foals, all via frozen semen.

Her training has proven tremendous dressage and jumping potential.

"Ivy" has incredible natural rhythm, is intrinsically forward, and is very well balanced; combine these things with her 3 good gaits, strong back, and natural athletic ability, plus her extreme willingness to learn, Ivy is an excellent dressage prospect (she is currently being introduced to lateral work).

Her true strength, however, lies in her jumping ability; she has free jumped well over 4 feet with ease, and is an incredibly brave and scopey jumper under saddle. She is lovely to ride, and is extremely comfortable.
