Lugano (“Gani”)

2000 Gelding

Lancer II / Mackensen / Illit

Lugano (aka Gani) is Ashley’s own Grand Prix horse. He was purchased as a four year old and was Ashley’s first endeavor in training a young horse through the levels. Gani has traveled from Maine, to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, and back again with Ashley and has been her partner on her journey as a trainer. Gani was Ashley’s first young horse, first warmblood, first FEI horse, and first Grand Prix horse. The pair earned Ashley her USDF Gold Medal on their first competition at Grand Prix in 2013 with a score of 69% on their first trip down centerline at the level. He has been entirely trained by Ashley with the guidance of some of the country’s top professionals like Courtney King-Dye and Scott Hassler and has participated in events with notables Steffen Peters and most recently in front of 1,000 people with Carl Hester at the NEDA Fall Symposium in 2017. He has been a teacher and inspirer to countless riders, working students, and spectators with his small size and larger than life spirit! Gani is a once in a lifetime horse, who easily could have been an international competitor if not for being the teacher and patient partner he has been for so many. He is still going strong at 19 years old this year and will continue to educate and inspire as long as he is happy doing it!

Erdstern (“Eddie”)

2013 Danish Warmblood Gelding

Blue Hors Erlando / Blue Hors Don Schufro

Erdstern (aka Eddie) is a lovely turning six year old Danish Warmblood gelding that was bred at the famous Blue Hors Stud in Denmark. Eddie came to Yellow Wood as a green-broke turning four year old in May of 2017. He was always a very well behaved young horse with an exceptional canter and work ethic, but was very tall and needed time to develop into his big frame. He gained experience in the show ring over the last two years in the Young Horse Divisions as a four year old and five year old with good feedback and result. He was twice chosen to participate in exclusive events with Charlotte Dujardin in the last year and was highly praised for his type and ability by Charlotte herself. He has all the makings of a top FEI horse and will be with YWD to be developed to FEI levels for his owner, Amanda Gervais. We believe Eddie is a horse to develop to the top levels of the sport and will pursue those avenues when he is ready. For now, we are allowing him the time to grow up without too much stress as he steadily progresses in his work. He shows tremendous ability for piaffe and has excellent technique for the collected work. He is truly a barn favorite with his sweet boyish personality!
