Orange Crush LJS
Lovely KWPN 2019 chestnut filly with loads of chrome. This beautiful lady is bred to be a performance horse with Grand Prix Dressage winners and Grand Prix Jumper winners along with proven Eventing blood, she can do it all. Secretariat as her Great Grandfather is nothing to ignore either.
We take great pride in fostering a great customer relationship that begins the second we meet and continues long after a LJS foal leaves the farm for a bright career with a new partner!

I was introduced to Marie and LJS through a friend that had bought an LJS yearling. For several years, I helped out around the farm and learned a great deal about Marie’s breeding program, philosophy, and handling/training youngsters. I was continually impressed with all of the foals’ capabilities, enthusiasm, and temperaments. At that point, I decided to do a custom breeding using my favorite LJS mare, Saretta Ster!
Marie was there every step of process, listening to what I was hoping to breed, making suggestions as to what bloodlines would cross well with Saretta, and what I could expect out of each pairing. After much discussion, we settled on Bugatti Hilltop.
My goal in the custom breeding was to get a foal that would have high rideability and temperament, superior athleticism and push from behind, as well as the durability for a long career. Although Dressage is my discipline of choice, and I hoped my foal would be my upper-level Dressage partner, I fully agreed with Marie’s practice of blending jumper bloodlines with the old Dressage foundations in effort to produce a more athletic foal.
In April 2014, my filly Beretta LJS was born! From the second she hit the ground, I knew that “Etta” was everything I’d hoped she’d be! She earned excellent remarks at her AHS inspection, displays wonderfully powerful and balanced movement, and most importantly – has an eagerness to learn and please! Marie has been there to guide us through ground, trailer, and barn manner training. She is a patient and highly knowledgeable teacher.
I would highly recommend using Marie’s services for Breeding Consultations, whether you are breeding one of her mares as a custom breeding, or would like her guidance in selecting the proper stud for your mares.
