    Default Leena, I Met Victor Yesterday!

    Hi, Leena! Our horse club rented a tour bus yesterday to visit the amazing carriage collection of Paul Bienvenu, and also the Canadian Horse farms Ferme Litjens and CanaDream Farm. Victor was one of the many stallions brought out for our viewing pleasure. Mary Jo mentioned how well Pantere (one of Victor's sons, for other readers' info) had done in dressage, giving glowing reports of your training of him. Victor was passaging in hand in front of a field full of mares. My, how lovely and light his movement is! If Pantere is like him, wow; just wow!

    Best wishes,

    Valerie

    Oh I am so happy !!!!

    So you met the great Bromont Coco Victor, the sire of my beloved Panthère ! How wow !
    I just had great news from actual Pathère owner's..He is doing well and his height is 16.3 hands !!!!

    This is great from MJ Proulx to tell about Panthère..But we have the first dam from one of the famous Litjens stallion Yukon ! That stallion is something too !

    I recall one comment about Panthère from an american trainer; he told me he would be one of those Canadians..
    I think he was right !

    Here pictures of Panthère at 4 yrs old in dressage..Nice looking boy ! Everybody thought he was a big warmblood !!! We won the reserve champion in Intro dressage wich is not bad for a 4 yres old ridden by me during chemos treatments !

    Hi, Leena,

    Lovely photos! Panthere is in a frame appropriate to his stage of training, and is certainly concentrating on what you are asking him to do. I can see the similarities between him and Victor in the croup coupling and the jawline. Also the finer bone than some of the other Canadians we saw. Of course, they all had wonderful feet.

    We did see Yukon. In fact, we asked for a second viewing of him. The Litjens and the Proulx families were very welcoming and obliging. It is clear that they enjoy what they are doing.
