2018 Foals Heading To New Homes
MSJ Foal
This month we have said goodbye to some wonderful foals who have now found new homes in Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Ireland, France and The USA.

We can’t wait to follow their development over the coming years and wish them all the very best of luck in their new homes.
Stallion Grading Success
Stallion Grading
In other great news the success continues with Benchmark.

MSJ Benchmark, the first colt of our foundation mare FBW Deja Vu who herself was a Bronze Young Horse medalist, became a licensed Oldenburg stallion at the recent licensing in Vechta. Sold as a foal to Jessica Michelle of France, we are delighted to see the development of this Bordeaux colt who we know will excel even more under saddle based on his damline's top ride ability and performance in the arena.
Congratulations to his owners and good luck for the future with him also in sport! We cannot wait to continue following his development.

*MSJ Furstin Diaz*
5 year old 16.2 grey mare by Furst Romancer x Dimaggio
Qualified for Novice Gold and 5year Finals at the British Dressage Nationals.

Diva has finally arrived at Mount St John 

We have discussed the chance to acquire Vivaldi’s full sister from the breeder for around 3 years and finally she has arrived, in foal for 2019 to Toto Jr!! 

We’re eternally grateful to Cindy Versantvoort for this amazing opportunity to continue your very special line. 

We have been huge Vivaldi fans for a while, breeding foals from him every year since our breeding program started. Also two of our top sport mares are directly sired by Vivaldi - Mount St. John VIP (Vivaldi x Donnerhall) 2018 British Advanced Medium National Champion with 81.5% & Mount St. John Valencia (Vivaldi x Ferragamo) the 2018 British Medium National Reserve Champion with 76%!! We believe both are very special mares in their own right with serious talent for the pi/pa and exciting futures for the big sport! 

We hope Diva will settle into Yorkshire life easily and we can’t wait to see next years foal already!!

After a super 2018 season, Mount St John are proudly expecting our biggest ever crop of foals for 2019!
