Predominantly a Hunter/Jumper barn, we have a wide range of well-trained horses that have transferred their skills to different disciplines including dressage, eventing, trail riding and western. Bonnie Lea Farm’s horses are sensible, friendly companions. We take pride in matching the personalities of horses and riders. We are likely to have more horses available than those posted below. For more information, call or email.

Stiletto – Stiletto is a six year old 16.1 hh Hanoverian TB cross mare with no vices. Started slow at 4 with baby greens and moved up as a 5 year old. Honest and willing, she will be successful with a confident rider. Stiletto has shown in the 3 foot hunters with plenty of room to grow and a lot of potential in all three rings. She is super handy and obedient, with lots of scope and a good brain. Auto lead changes, incredibly comfortable, very adjustable stride – can add or get the number with ease. Excellent ground manners, gets on any trailer without a fuss, stands for farrier, vet and hose. Just competed at AIR Show Jumping in Northampton and won a the 2’6″ Hunter/Bit of Straw Classic. (Video of Stiletto from an AIR Noho Class) Stiletto is currently in Florida.
Just Cadence (Cadence) – *Available for off farm lease for 2020 or for sale. Cadence is a 14-year-old, 16.2, American warmblood who is game for anything. Another homebred who has proven he is more than capable for any level rider. Whether the jumps are 3’3” or 2’6” he is honest and safe. In the IHSA shows, Cadence is often the desired draw because he is comfortable, sensible and versatile. At a horse show, or on the trail, Cadence is the best you can get! Video of Cadence
Dolce Monte (Dolce) – *Available for off farm lease for 2020 or for sale* Born at BLF, “Dolce” is an extremely athletic, 8-year-old Welsh – Thoroughbred cross. 8-year-old Welsh X TB pony with permanent pony card and outstanding talent. Dapples all over with a gorgeous coat and shine. He has “A” show experience, and has done clinics with Greg Best, but has far too much talent to continue in our lesson program. Dolce is incredibly adjustable with the ability to do horse or pony strides. Adorable mover, jumps 3 feet no problem, auto changes and great sense of humor. Dolce has been ridden in local parades. Looking for his very own kid to love, knockout contender in all three rings. Great personality and very friendly pony, he will certainly keep you entertained! (Dolce Monte Video from GMHA 2018).

Aberdeen – Aberdeen is an 8-year-old warmblood, chestnut mare. She has great jumper potential. She is brave to the jumps, having gone to AIR Northampton as her third show and didn’t even look at the jumps. Fairly new to Bonnie Lea, Aberdeen has settled in and proven to be an athletic horse with great form.
Night Moves (Raven) – Raven is a 2016 Canadian Sport Horse – Thoroughbred cross filly and full sister to Amelia. She is green broke at the walk, trot and canter. She lunges, stands on cross-ties for farrier.
Maiden Voyage (Amelia) – Amelia was bred, born, and raised on the farm. She is a 2015 bay filly. Canadian Sport Horse – Thoroughbred cross. Her training has started. Sweet girl. Green broke and moving forward.
Please contact us about our more recent additions born at Bonnie Lea. All of our babies are people oriented and friendly. They are sensible, sound and without vices. All stand for the farrier and vet, stand tied and load easily onto a trailer. The foals from our farm are well socialized and turnout with several others. All have grown into faithful companions and many into brave show horses!
