On Sunday March 18, Icarus and Indigo left KVS for their new home with Holly Franklin in Saskatoon. It's bittersweet to have two beloved and beautiful young horses leave, but everyone at KVS is happy to see them go to such a great home. Holly is an experienced rider, teacher, trainer and equine therapist, with exciting plans to further develop both horses. It will be great to see them flourishing under her care, and we look forward to what the future will bring for both Icarus and Indigo.
Today saw Kalinka KVS, known as Klassy, leave the farm for her new home with Angela Jones of Fort Saskatchewan.
Klassy, true to her nickname, is a stylish filly. She is not yet started in saddle, but is a graceful and strong free jumper. This isn't surprising, given that the bloodlines of her sire Icarus KVS include international stars Tangelo and Contender, and that her dam Zinadine is out of the equally famous stallion Berlin.
With Angela training and in the saddle, here's hoping these two will be a happy team for years to come.
New to the big barn and full-time training is Jumping Jack Flash KVS. Jack shows his love of jumping with a celebratory kick when he finishes off his free jumps - and with this enthusiasm, plus his great personality and fantastic parentage, he's sure to take to training as much as his older, bigger barn mates.
Stay tuned for more about Jack, as his training picks up stride.
The newest addition to KVS Sport Horses showed up just in time to help ring in 2018. Nitro joins Lucy and Phinnie as the resident hounds, keeping Enigma, Indy, Icarus, Indigo and Jack company most days in the big barn and riding arenas. Nitro arrives in Alberta from Illinois.
Welcome, little guy!
