Keep your eyes on the prize

There is nothing more important to a breeder than keeping your goals in mind throughout every step of the process. Whether you're choosing a trainer for your young stock, or choosing the next sire of your foal, your vision should be your goal and every result helps you shape your path towards that goal.

Every horse we've bred or purchased has had an effect on our path in some form or another. We are proud of all of these Morgans and this is the page that remembers them.

Below are horses that have passed through the hands of Ridgewood, either by birth or by purchase. Each and every one has been an influence on our plans for the future. Mousing over a thumbnail will bring up a larger image above it. Click on the thumbnail to see the largest version of each photo.

A Touch of Elegance

A TOUCH OF ELEGANCE 1985 Bay Mare

'Ellie' had a tremendous influence on Ridgewood. She was an own daughter of Wham Bam Command and we were elated to get her. We bred her to Tara's Cherokee, crossing back into Trophy and In Command bloodlines, not unlike the Tara Farm program we studied so closely. The resulting foal would be named the 2000 World Champion Mare, RWF Noelle. That win with Noelle changed the face of Ridgewood and propelled us to set sail on a new course of breeding excellence, or so it seemed.

The following year, while she was foaling a bay colt by Cedar Creekharlequin, Ellie died - and in losing her we lost our hearts as well. We miss her as much today as we did the day she left us. She was a once-in-a-lifetime mare and we are grateful for the short time we owned her. Since then Ridgewood has been re-born, but we remember our foundation mares and hold them very dear.

APOGEE KILLER BEA 1989 Chestnut Mare

Bea came to retire at Ridgewood in Colorado. She was given to us by Drs. Ray and Allison Bendele to enjoy for pleasure riding around the farm. Bea had been shown many times as a Western Pleasure mare and that good training made her a wonderful trail horse. We lost Bea all too soon, but are grateful to have had her for the short time that we did. She was a special part of our lives and we remember her fondly.

ATMF Majorette

ATMF MAJORETTE 1989 Chestnut Mare

The dam of four wonderful foals by Salem Command, including HFM Rock My World, Back Street Rhythm, Never Surrender, and the winning Jr. Exhibitor English Pleasure Horse Commanding Knight, Majorette is also the dam of FRF Curtain Call (by Serenity Masterpiece) who produced the outstanding FRF Kate Spade, by Mizrahi, for Kurt and Teri Rumens. We were very impressed with this big, stretchy mare and her wonderful old bottom line and so we bred her to Queen's Romeo and in 2009 she produced a dark bay colt for Ridgewood Farm named RWF Maestoso.

Her last foal in 2012 was a lovely stallion by Master Suite named ES Master and Commander, bred by Dawn Karkoski, who helped Majorette over the Rainbow Bridge in 2012.

Bealoved at North Star

BEALOVED 1980 Bay Mare

I remember walking past her stall at the Jubilee show and thinking she was the most beautiful yearling I had ever seen. She was sired by Beamine and had his trademark huge eyes and tight swivel ears. She was, in every aspect, exquisite. At the time, she was owned by Jaklee Farm in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Steve Quaid was her trainer at the time and also a mentor and friend of mine. Years later, when Jaklee Farm was dispersing most of their herd, Steve made Bealoved available to me. For Ridgewood she produced RWF Dearly Bealoved by Irish Ebony. We lost her to a brain tumor, an untimely death for a very elegant mare. When I'm thinking of Bealoved, I'm taking a walk down memory lane. She was very special to me.

Beaming Beauty

BEAMING BEAUTY 1977 Bay Mare

When Beaming Beauty became available for sale via auction, I was excited. We had owned her full sister and full brother and an opportunity to purchase Beauty was a dream come true. We quickly made arrangements to purchase her prior to the sale and she came to make her new home in Michigan.

Beauty was as lovely as her photos suggest. She was a big mare and absolutely beautiful. For Ridgewood, she produced one foal, RWF Lord Of The Dance, sired by Valiant Tony. Lord Of The Dance is owned by James Ivorie Fors in Pittsfield, PA.

We feel fortunate to have owned Beaming Beauty and feel blessed that such a lovely mare was able to spend her golden years under the expert care of Jan Currie at Elysian Fields.

Bella Prima

BELLA PRIMA 2001 Bay Mare

We have admired Bella Prima and her produce in the Copper Beech program for years and are grateful for the opportunity to have her produce foals for Ridgewood. Sally is out of a full sister to WC Centerpiece, and she is a 3/4 sister to One And Only (currently in the Schengrund breeding program), MKS Just Cause (dam of Diablo In Red and currently in Schendgrund's breeding program) and Prediction (dam of AWS Icon and AWS Fruition). Sally is also a paternal sister to the World Champion Mares Flawless and Decadence. Our plan was to breed her to one of our young stallions in the future, however her life was cut short prematurely.

Brief and Jeff

BRIEF ENCOUNTER 1987 Chestnut Gelding

He was with us such a short time - just months - yet his unexpected passing brought incredible pain to our lives. We will never forget the joy he brought to us, his stoicism through pain he did not let us see, the passing of a legend. Brief Encounter won multiple World titles for the Galatz family and later Tara Farm. He came to Ridgewood to retire. We planned a retirement party for him at the Circle J Horse Show and he attended as though he were the king. The very next day, he was gone. Goodbye, dear friend....we will NEVER forget you.

'Denise' has long been one of our favorite mares. She was the Grand National Champion Four Year Old Pleasure Driving Mare in her Oklahoma debut in 2009. She was also voted People's Choice Champion that year in the same division. She has a great work ethic for both saddle and harness, was a joy to have in the barn and has motor to burn.

Denise produced a refined and elegant chestnut colt by DBA Street Talk in 2012 named RWF James Bond.

In 2012, young Averi Bogar decided she simply had to have Denise and so she moved from Colorado to New Hampshire.

CBMF JUST ONE KISS 2005 Chestnut Mare

'Melody' is a maternal sister to our filly, RWF Finest Hour. They are both out of the park mare, Cabot French Kiss. Melody produced a beautiful chestnut filly in 2009 by Aljaks Double Whammy for Aljak Acres in Grass Lake, Michigan. Unfortunately, she died as a weanling--a heartbreaking experience. As you can see from her photo, she was a very special filly. Melody is now owned by Debbie LaMay, JD Stables in Michigan.

CBMF PRIVATE PARTY 2006 Bay Mare

It was a sad day at Ridgewood when we lost Futurity's Nobelle Prize on October 18, 2012. Unexpectedly, we were presented with an opportunity to own one of her granddaughters who also happens to be sired by Mizrahi. The linebreeding to Nobelle on her distaff side makes her valuable as a broodmare. To have her sired by Mizrahi, who is out of the legendary Wham Bam Command daughter, Schiaparelli, was icing on the cake. We are so grateful to have Toni as part of our small breeding herd.

'Suzy' carries the golden cross of Serenity Masterpiece (through DBA Street Talk) and Noble Flaire (through HVK Bell Flaire). Her dam, CBMF Unforgettable, is a nationally titled show mare and a favorite of ours. Her sire, DBA Street Talk, is playing an important role in the future of the Ridgewood Morgans. She's fiery hot with a big open trot. Now owned by Jonas Stoltzfus of PA.

Since she is just three, we are excited by the dam lines on her pedigree that include her dam as well as Miss Bluegrass, HVK Obsidian, Schiaparelli, Nobelle, Promise Of The Pines and the great matriarch, HVK Dragonfly.

Song is out of RRG Flash Dance, making her a maternal sister to Ariel, a top producing mare for Copper Beech Morgan Farm and Tribeca. Her sire, HRH Legend Command, brings important Waseeka's In Command blood to the mix. Now owned by Debbie LaMay.

COBRIDGE MAXIMUM AFFAIR - Leased 1995 Chestnut Mare

Maxine was a breeder's dream and we are proud of our friends Brenda and Doug Coats for breeding her. We purchased her sight unseen in partnership with our good friend Dick Phillips as a yearling from a video tape sent to us by Phil Fountain. Phil showed her to Reserve World Champion Mare honors as a two year old, standing behind Tara's Anasazi. We then sold her to Marilyn Esteb, where Melissa Wahl showed her to the Grand National Champion Ladies Pleasure Driving Championship. She now grazes the pastures at Playmor Farm and is producing top show horses for the Hazen family's breeding program. She brought great joy to our lives and to the lives of those who know her. We are pleased to announce that Ridgewood Farm has leased Maxine from PlayMor Farm. Maxine is in foal to SLB Da Vinci for a 2015 foal.

When Karyl Hylle made the full sister to Dragonsmeade Evensong available to us on lease we jumped at the chance to bring Dash Of Spice to Colorado. Evensong was perhaps one of, if not the most cherished mare we have ever owned. Unfortunately, we lost 'Katie' to colic along with the in utero foal she was carrying by Dragonsmeade Axios.

Dash has produced several nice foals for Karyl by HVK Bell Flaire and Graycliff Tony. Dash is confirmed in foal to Dragonsmeade Icon for a 2017 foal.

Cedar Creek Scalawag and JW Southern Charm's bloodlines are very rare to find these days, so we are pleased to have Lucy as a broodmare at Ridgewood. She is a big, kind and beautiful mare and has found her forever home in Colorado.

Lucy delivered a beautiful chestnut colt in 2011 by World Champion Dragonsmeade Icon, RWF Iconic, who is doing very well. Lucy safely delivered a chestnut colt by ZZ Top for 2016. We have named him RWF Timeless.
For 2017, Lucy has been leased to Lynn Pichette, Hollywood Morgans, and will stay at Ridgewood.

Congratulations to Kelly & Jacob Wendell on your selection of Dragonsmeade Odin. He is a very cool horse and we know you are going to enjoy much success in the show ring with him in the years ahead. Thank you to Tim Roesink, who served as agent for both parties. Sold in 2012


Odin is sired by World Champion And The Beat Goes On and is out of World Champion WSG Shady Lady. He carries his head high, only knows how to trot, and is beautiful. Our hope is that he will become a top performance horse for our farm, like so many of his siblings. Odin made his show ring debut at the 2011 Southern States Regional and was the UPHA Park Harness Classic Reserve Champion.

He was a hot bay stallion who came trotting out of his stall over level every day. A small but game harness horse we loved to hook him and enjoy him as a harness horse on the farm. For Ridgewood he produced just one foal, a beautiful bay filly we named RWF Natalia. Natalia was out of a good show mare in her day, Arkomia Tallahassee. We sold Natalia as a weanling and the last we heard she was being enjoyed as a family pleasure horse in Wyoming.

EXCLUSIVELY FERRARI 2002 Black Mare

Wham Bam Command has played an important role in our breeding program through the years. We have wanted a daughter of Tug Hill Whamunition for a very long time, being very selective in the one who would join our group of mares. That goal became a reality in November of 2014 when 'Helen' came to Ridgewood.

Of particular importance to us was her dam line, JLS Deer Sal. Deer Sal is the dam of And The Beat Goes On, Lamborghini In Black, Belle Escada, Morgan Ridge Bellaragazza and Enthusiastic, who is also her full sister. Unfortunately, Helen lost her filly in 2016. We are going to give her the year off and breed her again in 2017.

FAITH HILL 1995 Bay Mare

Julie went shopping and returned with the coming yearling filly, Faith Hill. I was speechless when she looked at me and said 'Anything can happen if you have a little Faith!' Faith went on to be the first yearling to win the Circle J Yearling Futurity Championship. Her career continued with a Grand National win in Oklahoma, also as a yearling. We later sold her and she now continues her show ring career as a hunter pleasure mare. We've always thought she was a beautiful mare and are proud that she was one of the early Ridgewood-owned champions. And Julie was right; amazing things can happen if you keep the faith!

She also carries the distinction of having produced the first RWF-bred World Champion, RWF Victorious, by Duke of Wynne. Elana was a typey mare with a great shoulder and a lot of talent. She passed these traits on to her produce, of which there were far too few. She was a foundation mare for Ridgewood and one that we revere even to this day.

I remember the day I met Lalique in person. I had flown to Raintree Farm to see a foal, Raintree Celine. Stabled across the aisle were FCF Lalique and a black weanling filly, Raintree Joyous. Any thoughts of buying a filly stopped in that moment and I quietly wondered how I could get Lalique. As if fate were listening to my dream, Barb asked if I had an interest in leasing Lalique. I immediately said yes and promptly bred her to World Champion Park Saddle Horse Centerpiece. The resulting filly was the World Champion Mare, RWF Over The Rainbow. Lalique has now retired at Ridgewood Farm.

Bridaveil is by DBA Street Talk and out of a daughter of Timelok, Rush To Judgment. Both of these stallions have been influential in our breeding program. FairyTale is nationally titled having won the 3-Year Old Pleasure Driving Mare qualifier at the World Show in Oklahoma in 2013. Our thanks to Fire Run Farm for the opportunity to purchase this fancy mare. We plan to breed her in 2017.

FLAIRE DE LARK 1988 Chestnut Gelding

We called him 'Luke', and he was perhaps Jake's favorite Morgan of all time. He was one of the early Ridgewood Morgans, a son of Waseeka's Skylark and Hylee's Justintime. We sold Luke as a two year old to Shelby Guelich of Temecula, California, but then he was given back to Ridgewood after a chain of events. Jake showed him successfully in harness, and Tara Lindeen (now Good) showed him under saddle. To the best of our knowledge, Luke is still alive and living his days at Hylee Farm in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin as a lesson horse. We are so grateful to have owned this wonderful horse in our early years. These are the Morgans that helped solidify our love for the breed and our lifelong passion of owning them.

The video clip here is of Miss Munitions' daughter by WC Stonecroft Trilogy.

Worthy to note is that Nobelle Prize is a full sister to Futurity French Command.

HF Northborn

HF NORTH BORN 1981 Chestnut Gelding

His name morphed from 'North Born' to 'Nanook of the North' to 'Nook.' And he was a blast. We bought him in utero and he carried the HF prefix (Harmonette Farm) as that was the precursor to Ridgewood's RWF. Scottie Matton showed him for us in two year old park harness and despite his airs above the ground, was able to keep him between the shafts long enough to win a class or two for us. We sold Nook to Shamrock Farm in Kentucky, where he became a National winning show gelding for Ashley Taylor Wilson and her brother, Ethan. In that role, he was a very special horse and I believe he died at Shamrock Farm--a beloved member of their family.

HVK Irish High

HVK IRISH HIGH 1996 Bay Mare

Irish is a full sister to multi World-titled HVK Bell Flaire. We purchased her at the 2009 Copper Beech Sale. She is a joy to have in the barn as her personality is endearing and kind. When she walks out the barn door she flags and primps like a park mare--just the attitude we love to see in our broodmares. Irish is in foal to DBA Street Talk for 2010, making this foal yet another of the golden Flaire/Masterpiece cross. CONGRATULATIONS to Bruce and Jean Beckman on your selection of this mare. We wish you much success with both Irish and her Street Talk foal. NEWS!! Irish presented the Beckmans with a bay filly in March, 2010.

HVK NOBLE ROSE 1991 Bay Mare

Noble Rose is an exquisite mare. She is the type that will flag her tail and primp around the pasture like a show mare, even in her golden years. For Ridgewood, she produced two top colts by Centerpiece: RWF Noble Peace and RWF Peaceful Warrior. Our hearts were saddened when Rose lost a filly in 2009 by the late Queen's Romeo, as we had very high hopes for this cross. The good news is that Rose is back in foal for Debbie LaMay of JD Stables in Michigan, and we wish them all the success that Ridgewood has had with this truly great daughter of Noble Flaire.

'Natalie' was a full sister to HVK Vibrance and HVK Man About Town, all being out of the Wham Bam Command daughter HVK Radiant. Wham Bam Command has played an important role in our breeding program through the years, as we revere the Trophy/In Command crosses. Our thanks to Copper Beech Morgan Farm for the opportunity to purchase this great mare and give her a home for her last years on earth. She thankfully left us a beautiful 2015 filly to replace her, RWF Vergara, by Mizrahi.

Hylee Sadie Hawkins

HYLEE SADIE HAWKINS 0000 Chestnut Mare

I met 'Sadie' at Country Manor Farm in Cannon Falls, MN as a yearling. Jackie Millet, now Sweeney, owned CMF before it later took on the name of it's predecessor, Hylee Farm. Sadie was an impressive yearling and you could pick her out in a pasture as the most beautiful, the most upheaded, the most talented. She went on to storm the show ring by winning a World title in Oklahoma in Two Year Old Park Harness. Years later, Sadie came to Ridgewood through the generosity of Bob and Debi Boies, Landrum, South Carolina. She had one foal for us, RWF Tuscany, before her much-too-early death. We were fortunate to have her full sister, Hylee's Dirty Dancing, in our group of mares for a short time. She is different than her sister, but there is no denying the family resemblance.

Hylee’s Justintime

HYLEE'S JUSTINTIME 1971 Chestnut Mare

'Tina' holds a special place in our hearts, as she is the mare that served as the foundation for our love of producing Morgan horses. For us, she produced Thunderbolt TBM and Northernaire--both by Rimlo Black Valiant. In addition, she produced the winning show gelding Flaire De Lark by Waseeka's Skylark and the first Morgan to carry the RWF prefix, RWF Kristina, by Irish Ebony. She also produced a lovely chestnut filly by Sorento that we named RWF Best Of Times. Mention Tina in the presence of myself or Jake Hendzel and you'll get the same instant response--'she was the best of the best.' We loved this grand old mare.

I Stand Alone's contribution to our program has been significant--two fillies, RWF Songbird by Hylee's Galaxy Seven, and RWF Estelle by MEM The Patriot. 'London' is also the dam of the winning show gelding, Meet Joe Black, and the winning harness horse, CBMF Stand By Me. She is now retired and spending her time grazing with her Masterpiece sister, Rights of Passage.

Intrinsic Beauty with Stan Bodnar

INTRINSIC BEAUTY 1994 Bay Mare

Beauty left us much too soon, but prior to her passing she blessed us with two wonderful foals. They are World Champion RWF Paganini and the up and coming prospect, RWF Whamerican Beauty. Paganini, sired by Beethoven, won the World Champion Junior Gelding Championship as a yearling in Oklahoma. Whamerican Beauty, now two, was recently purchased by Mountain Aspen Morgans as a show prospect and future broodmare.

When Beauty died, she was under the vigilant care of the Martin family and Aljak Acres. For those of you who have seen Aljak Acres, you know she passed while enjoying a little slice of Heaven on earth. We are blessed to know she had such wonderful care in her final days.

Irish Ebony with Doris Ryan

IRISH EBONY 1980 Black Stallion

When we were first into Morgans, we fell in love with the Beamington offspring. We had seen Irish Ebony as a yearling at the Jubilee Regional Show and were later able to purchase him as an adult stallion from the Dodson family. He sired several foals for us and some of our clients before we sold him to Dave and Carol Allen in Wisconsin. In addition to Ebony, we owned his dam, Irish Ecstasy, and his sisters, Irish Oh My and Beaming Beauty. We tried hard to buy Irish Elegance, too, but couldn't quite get that done! It was a family affair--the 'Beamingtons' bring back wonderful memories of our early days with the Morgan horse.

To have had the opportunity to own Ecstasy was an honor. Through our pastures had passed Irish Oh My, Beaming Beauty, Irish Ebony, all by Beamington and ultimately the foal 'Stasy' was carrying when she came to us, FCF Anastasia, by Sorento. We are blessed to have had Stasy spend her final years with us at our farm in Michigan. She was extraordinarily elegant. Her fourth offspring by Beamington, Irish Elegance, was most reminiscent of her dam.

I remember Doris Ryan telling me Oh My named herself - those were the first words out of Doris' mouth when she saw the newborn at the side of her dam, Irish Ecstasy. Oh My was the first yearling to win the National Futurity class in Oklahoma with her handler, Steve Quaid, for Jaklee Farms in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Oh My and Bealoved were two fillies at Jaklee Farm that I loved and I'm so grateful they eventually spent time at Ridgewood. It was Irish Oh My and her siblings, along with Bealoved, that serve as the foundation for my lifelong love of breeding Morgan show horses.

LIV Reality Star

LIV REALITY STAR 2004 Bay Mare

Reality Star is an exquisite mare, a worthy representative of her impressive pedigree. Like all the Masterpiece mares, she has incredible drive off her hocks. 'Judi' has charisma and a showy attitude. Leading her around outside is a joy as her tail is over her back and her head is high in the air. A young mare, she produced a very nice bay colt by Ben's Rhapsody that we named RWF On The Reverse. We sold this colt as a yearling and will be watching him with his first-time Morgan owner, Rebeka Murray, in the future.

Merwin Caramore with Phil Fountain

MERWIN CARAMORE 1989 Bay Mare

There are a lot of fun stories around our association with 'Carrie', but perhaps the most amusing of them involves Miss Judy Whitney Harris. We were showing Carrie at the Jubilee Regional Show and Judy had a client interested in purchasing Carrie. The deal was closed pending the usual vet inspection--or so we thought. We all agreed to meet at 8:00 AM for the vet check exam, but rather than showing up with her vet, Judy showed up with a halter and lead shank. Judy looked at me and said 'Honey, is this mare sound?' I replied that yes, Ma'am, she was indeed sound. 'I'll take your word for that son, and in the event it turns out you're not a man of your word I'll be giving you a phone call.' That was the vet check. Caramore is now owned by Dr. Robert Jones in Missouri and continues to produce outstanding foals for him.

MISS SOMONAUK 1997 Black Mare

'Mona' reminds us of our early days with Morgans when her dam, Brentwood Bracelet, was being shown as an open and ladies park harness mare. The first time we saw Mona she was a two year old with Ekstrom stables showing all the promise of her great dam. She followed in those steps and went on to be a winning park saddle and harness mare in her own right. Mona came to Ridgewood several years ago and has recently sold to Lonnie Yoder. We wish you much success!

She is the dam of the World Champion Toscanini, by SLB DaVinci. Who doesn't remember her dam's sensational park saddle performances? Round it out that she is sired by Cedar CreekHarlequin, making her a full sister to the top producing mare, AFF Beulah, dam of MEM Bailamos.

NEWS: My Destiny gave us a bay filly by Stand And Deliver in 2015. We've named her RWF Designed.


Destiny is in foal to Dragonsmeade Sea Dragon for 2017.

Oak Creek Chief Of Staff with Wendell Williams

OAK CREEK CHIEF OF STAFF 1992 Bay Gelding

Chief is a show horse from ears to tail. He is one of the favorite geldings we've owned because he was always so game and ready to show. Throughout his career he made numerous victory passess with Wendell Williams, Jennifer Kellert and others. Every time he stepped into the show ring it was to win and often that's exactly what he did. Chief continues his winning ways under the ownership of Margaret J. Brown in Dehli, New York, where he competed as one of the top winning amateur driving horses in the Mid-Atlantic area until his retirement after the 2010 season.

Prelude to Passion

PRELUDE TO PASSION 1990 Chestnut Mare

Passion spent just a short time with Ridgewood Farm, but during that time we decided to breed her to Aljaks Double Whammy. She was sold to Ann Hailey's Copper Beech Morgans with that foal in utero. The resulting colt is the top winning CBMF Double Down, or 'Kenny' as he is affectionately known. Had this been her only foal, she would have made her mark, but Passion continues to be a top producing mare for Ann and we continue to watch her--and her CBMF foals--very closely. She is an extraordinary mare--a full sister to the great producer Pompp And Pazazz, as well as our own Slip Into Silk.

She was such a pretty baby and she stole our hearts, thus her name. She quickly stole the hearts of Janelle and Kay Schroeder as well, and they purchased her as a weanling for their Cadence Morgan Farm. Her sire, Tara's Cherokee, played a vital role in the success of the Ridgewood program and her dam, Charisma Command, added allure to an already impressive pedigree. We were very proud to have produced RWF After My Heart.

She has gone on to be a winning hunter pleasure mare for her owners and we are proud of her accomplishments in that arena, too. Perhaps the day will come when she returns home. She would certainly be welcome!

RWF CASE CLOSED 2006 Chestnut Stallion

We've never sold a colt as fast as we did 'Carlos.' He was three days old. We had photos that Ken Martin had taken for us. I showed them to Debra Hurst and she said she wanted him. I said he was expensive and she wrote the check. The deal took less than five minutes. Amazing, but not as amazing as Carlos was as a baby. Unfortunately, he died much too young, so he never realized his full potential. To those that knew him, he was a special colt. His early death remains a disappointment.

I remember the day she was born. It was in a pasture at our Michigan farm. Her dam, Bealoved, foaled earlier than we had anticipated. Jake took one look at her and said, 'it's a filly and her name is Dearly Bealoved.' She was a mare very reminiscent of her linebred Beamington pedigree. We bred her to Stonecroft Masquerade and she produced the nice mare, RWF To Have And To Hold. Dearly Bealoved is owned by Jaymi & Hayley Frizzle in Applegate, Michigan.

We waited a long time to be able to purchase My Destiny and when we finally did we bred her immediately to Stand And Deliver because, as a sire, he has been so good to us. My Destiny is the dam of multi-titled Toscanini and we plan to breed her back to either SLB DaVinci or his son, Leonardo's Cry in the future as both of those stallions have tremendous dam lines. The filly My Destiny produced for us by Stand And Deliver is leggy and beautiful and talented. Julie has designs on her being a future driving horse for herself and thus her name, RWF Designed. We think highly of Sophia and hope you'll enjoy seeing her show. She is not for sale.

RWF DiBella

RWF DIBELLA 2001 Bay Mare

RWF DiBella is truly a wonderful mare with a linebred pedigree that should grab the attention of any astute breeder. She's is out of the lovely and refined Tara's Sable, and is sired by Cedar Creekharlequin. She's had one daughter by Aljaks Double Whammy, RWF Belissima. DiBella is owned by JSP Morgans and is currently being offered for sale. Take a look; she's a great opportunity for a foundation broodmare. As an added incentive, Bella has also had several months of professional training under saddle.

The stars aligned when we were able to purchase World Champion Patchwork Simply Amazin, an own daughter of Simply Maserati. It was Sammi and Jennifer Hazen who suggested we breed her to the multi-world titled stallion, Dragonsmeade Icon. I've teased them that their name should be listed as breeders of this colt. We have high expectations for 'Julian.' He is currently in training at The River's Edge in Elizabeth, CO.

RWF DREAMGIRL 2008 Bay Mare

Dreamgirl, or 'Diva,' was a special filly from the day she was born. She loves people. Inquisitive, beautiful, safe--a weanling ambassador for the Morgan breed. She is now owned by Jim and Tracey Coombes and their son Ryan, but it seems the bond is between Diva and Ryan. We get photos now and then and appreciate that we get to share them with you here. We can't imagine finding a better home for this tractable, beautiful filly. Diva is sired by Queen's Johnny Angel and out of the good Tedwin Topic mare, Suwanee Sweet Dreams.

RWF Emotion

RWF EMOTION 2009 Dark Bay Mare

'Claire' is a beautiful daughter of the WC park stallion Man In Motion, and the black park mare Miss Somonauk. She is a stunning filly with huge eyes, an extremely long forearm, long pasterns and overall refinement that catches your eye. She is right out of the Waterford Farm mold of World Champion show horses. She has solid in-hand potential, combined with a strong, balanced trot. And--icing on the cake--she's an extremely dark bay. Owned by Paul Eicher in Indiana.

When we saw this beautiful filly at birth, her name came to us in an instant--she was enchanting! Sired by Tara's Cherokee and out of the linebred In Command mare, GVF Intimate Command, Eve is bred to breed on. We sold her as a weanling to Kay and Janelle Schroeder and she went on to be a top winning Western show mare for them. I'm anxious for the day when she starts to produce offspring of her own.

RWF ESTELLE 2009 Bay Mare

We saved this name for a very special filly and Stella is just that. She is a beautiful girl and so reminiscent of her dam, I Stand Alone. Pretty as a picture and inquisitive as a cat, Stella has been drawn to humans from the day she was born. Her big brother, Meet Joe Black, has been a good show horse and we have high hopes that Stella will be the same. She is sired by SpringMill's World Champion Pleasure Driving horse, MEM The Patriot, who we've admired in the ring. Now owned by James Borkholder in Indiana.

RWF FINEST HOUR 2008 Bay Mare

RWF Finest Hour is among our very best. She is exquisitely refined and beautiful. When she trots she floats and we would simply stand, watch and smile. Her sire, DBA Street Talk, is a Serenity Masterpiece son who consistently passes on his long hip and great shoulder. Her dam, Cabot French Kiss, is a daughter of Futurity French Command and was a stunning park harness mare in her younger years. The combination of these two grand horses came together in our finest work as breeders. Now owned by Blue Ribbon Morgan Farm in Indiana.

She is also a full sister to Frosted Flake, the chestnut yearling that took the NEMHS yearling futurity by storm and went on to be an impressive saddle mare. We sold Amy as a weanling, but we truly loved her hot showy attitude. When you walked through the barn, she'd put her tail over her back in her stall and blow at you. She was just a really fun filly. Now owned by Christine Cameron-Brunault in New Hampshire.

Olivia is a lovely black filly who is the result of leasing her dam, U-Two, and breeding her to Mizrahi. We could not be more pleased with the result; who wouldn't want a black Mizrahi filly? U-Two is, of course, a product of the golden Boogie x Unity cross and U-Two delivers the best aspects of those bloodlines in spades in her foals. Olivia is definitely a filly who will be able to successfully compete in hand and in performance, possibly as soon as this year in Oklahoma. We can't wait!

DBA Street Talk has long been one of our favorite stallions and has played an important role at Ridgewood through the years. We were certain breeding CBMF Bond Girl to Street Talk was a perfect cross and we were not disappointed when RWF James Bond was born. 'Sean' is a very correct and beautiful Morgan colt. He is conformationally correct with a great shoulder, long hip and beautiful head. Icing on the cake is that he has an amazing personality, is easy to handle and is very, very smart. Now owned by Debby Mudler of Dallesport, WA.

RWF Julianna

RWF JULIANNA 1994 Bay Mare

Okay, there's a story here that few have been told. There was once a woman who lived in Colorado. Her name was Julia Ann Ouska and we had become friends. When Julianna was born, I gave her that name in order to lure Julie into the Morgan world in a more serious way. Alas, it worked! Julie ended up purchasing her namesake and the rest is history. I would feel more shameful in telling the story had the ending not turned out so well! Julianna was out of the Forevermore mare, Perenielle, who we had purchased from our friend Tami Johnson (pictured driving Thunderbay at left), and in fact this may have been our first introduction to Tami. Sired by Thunderbay, Julianna was line bred to Beamington. We showed her some as a yearling prior to selling her. For her day, she was a very nice filly and we understand she lives in Colorado now with Michele Bremer, not too far from our home here in Elizabeth.

Kristina has the distinction of being the first Morgan mare to carry the RWF prefix. We are as proud of her today as we were the day she was born. Sired by Irish Ebony, a Beamington son who played an important role in our program in the early years, she is out of our foundation and prized broodmare, Hylee's Justintime, who also produced Northernaire (by Rimlo Black Valiant) and Flaire De Lark (by Waseeka's Skylark) for Ridgewood. Kristina had multiple wins in the Western division and is now owned by Tammy Devier in Crary, ND.

The word Kurios has Greek origins and the name is usually translated as 'lord' or 'master.' It seemed an appropriate choice when we were blessed with the arrival of Henry. He is a beautiful colt out of one of the very best and talented mares we've ever owned and sired by the equally talented Dragonsmeade Sea Dragon. We were so excited for this cross and are not disappointed with the outcome.

RWF MAESTOSO 2009 Brown Gelding

Now owned by Shannon Fielder, Somerville, ME

His name, Maestoso, means 'majestic.' He is among our best foals and his name suits him perfectly. It was good fortune that brought him to us. His dam came to us as from Mike Mooney. She was an aged mare and she had not foaled in several years, but we took a chance and bred her to Queen's Romeo using frozen semen. She settled with a single cover and then, unfortunately, Romeo died. We are so grateful to have this high-headed and talented colt as one of his last offspring. We called him 'Alex', named after our friend, Alex Mooney.

I remember the year we bought Minion Flipside. We weren't shopping for a mare, but during an English Pleasure class at the Jubilee, Julie turned to me and said 'I must have her.' So we packed her up and headed for Michigan. The following year, we bred her to Carlyle Upper Caisse and the resulting filly was RWF Miss Melissa, named after our dear friend Melissa Cribley-Wahl. Miss Melissa is currently owned by Tom and Kerry Bodine.

Though we sold her as a youngster, Miss Saigon remains one of the favorite Morgans we've bred. She was born on our farm in Michigan when the RWF prefix was still unknown. Through the years, she has helped promote the Morgan breed, and our farm, in important ways. The photo with Phil Fountain riding her still hangs in Jay's office--a tribute to our early days in the Morgan breed. She is sired by the Noble Flaire son, HVK Noble Wind, and is out of the Black River Major daughter, Sincerely. We continue to be proud of this wonderful mare.

We call her our Millennium Mare, as Noelle was crowned World Champion Mare at the 2000 Grand National & World Championship Show. Sired by Tara's Cherokee and out of a Wham Bam Command daughter, Noelle is the Ridgewood culmination of years of studying the Tara Farm breeding program. Her pedigree is rich in the blood of Trophy and In Command. We are honored to have bred such a beautiful mare and pleased that she has returned to the broodmare ranks at Ridgewood Farm. Noelle delivered a bay colt by Cedar Creek Flambeau on June 29, 2014. We named him RWF Jack Black.

Out of one of the most beautiful Harlequin daughters to ever breathe, 'Tara' is sired by the sire of champions, Stand And Deliver. She is a big, bold, stretchy bay mare that has been conquering the world under the direction of The River's Edge and under the ownership of Debra Hurst.

In 2014, this grand mare capped off a phenomenal year as the Grand National Champion Pleasure Driving Amateur Ladies Finals winner, as well as the Grand National Champion Pleasure Driving Amateur Mare. She was also highly decorated in the English Pleasure division with both Debra in the saddle, as well as Mary Cockriel.

In 2013, she was Reserve World Champion Open English Pleasure horse, as well as Grand National Champion English Pleasure Ladies Mare and Grand National Champion Pleasure Driving Amateur Ladies Finals winner. In 2012, she was World Champion English Pleasure Four Year Old. They simply don't come any nicer than this lovely mare and we are proud to have bred her.

RWF TRIUMPHANT 1998 Chestnut Gelding

RWF Triumphant was the only foal Valiant Tony ever sired for Ridgewood, and Tony was a prized member of our Morgan family. Triumphant was out of our foundation mare, FCF Elana, making him a maternal brother to World Champion RWF Victorious. A very tall, talented and smooth colt with a world of potential. Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, we were forced to sell him as a two-year old. He was in training at the time with Mark and Melissa Wahl and showed great potential as a show horse.

RWF Tuscany

RWF TUSCANY 2006 Chestnut Gelding

Tuscany was an impressive colt, very reminiscent of both his sire and dam. He had a beautiful head and a perfectly laid-back shoulder, similar to both his parents. We sold Tuscany as a coming yearling to Steve and Annette Smith and, unfortunately, he was the only foal ever given to us by Sadie Hawkins before she died. Tuscany is now owned by Paul Yoder in Danville, OH.

RWF VERGARA 2015 Mare

We waited a very long time to get this filly. She is a dream cross for us and was bred to be a broodmare for Ridgewood. She is linebred to Noble Flaire and to Wham Bam Command. Her dam, HVK Reflection, is now deceased; her final gift to us is Maggie. We look forward to sharing her progress with you.

RWF Victorious - World Champion 2-Year Old Park Harness

RWF VICTORIOUS 1995 Chestnut Gelding

There is no moment of greater joy than when a horse carrying your prefix, that you have bred and have loved, steps into the coliseum in Oklahoma City and gives your farm it's first World Championship title. This outstanding gelding stepped up to take the Two Year Old World Champion Park Harness Championship title and we are extremely proud of that accomplishment. 'Vic' was sired by Duke of Wynne and was out of our great mare, FCF Elana. The thrill of that moment can still excite me today. We've bred World Champions since, but there is no thrill as exciting as the first. Thanks for the memories, Vic.

RWF Walk In The Park

RWF WALK IN THE PARK 1998 Brown Gelding

The shipment of semen arrived and we had two mares in heat. We called John Scheidt to see if he was okay with us inseminating two mares in hopes of getting one of them in foal. The end result was two mares, two foals, RWF To Have And To Hold and RWF Walk In The Park. He was long in coming, but when he arrived, he arrived in a big way. 'Simon' went on to be a winning Jr. Exhibitor Park Saddle horse on the East Coast and now is being shown out of Peeper Ranch as a successful English Pleasure horse. We have a great time every time we see Simon show and, more often than not, we get to see his victory pass as well.

RWF WHAMERICAN BEAUTY 2008 Bay Mare

Erika is the younger maternal sister to RWF Paganini and shows the same potential as her World Champion big brother. We lost her dam shortly after she was born, so this young lady will always have a special place in our hearts. She is elegant and beautiful; you could build an entire breeding program around her pedigree. CONGRATULATIONS to Bruce and Jean Beckman on their selection of this outstanding show mare. We wish you much success.

In addition, she has the distinction of producing the outstanding Aljaks Double Whammy colt, RWF Case Closed. Silk will retire at Ridgewood.

SMS Command Decision

SMS COMMAND DECISION 1993 Bay Gelding

'Mando' was a horse that we enjoyed a great deal as a young in-hand and harness horse. He was bred well and his looks matched his pedigree. In an interesting twist of events, we realized that his real place in life was as a Western horse. So, with that in mind, we traded him for a mare from Dale and Teri Rickford named A Touch Of Elegance. History in the making. We bred Ellie to Tara's Cherokee and the resulting filly was the 2000 World Champion Mare, RWF Noelle. Sometimes bartering can be a win/win situation as Mando was equally successful for Rickford Training Stable. These are the kinds of stories that make us smile.

The first time I saw Soul Sister was in harness at the Circle J Horse Show. The second time I saw her was at Copper Beech as a broodmare. The third time I saw her was coming off the van at Ridgewood! Smurf is a wonderful mare and we are really excited to have her as a part of our program. Her first foal for us, RWF Perfect World, is an outstanding example of her ability to produce.

Vogue is sired by HVK Man About Town and out of the great World Champion park harness mare, Arboria Victor's Pride. When Leslie Arnould and Akira Morgans made her available to us on a breeding lease we jumped at the opportunity. We bred Vogue to TSL StarCraft in 2015 and she delivered a beautiful bay filly for us in April, 2016. We've named her RWF In A Heartbeat.

STONECROFT SEDONA 1995 Bay Gelding

We bought 'Sid' as a weanling from Tara Farm. We had seen him at the Jubilee Show and really liked him. Julie and I collectively agreed that he'd be a good speculation horse, and he turned out to be just that--for us and for others. He was sired by Tara's Cherokee, a World Champion himself and a sire of note, and out of the Waseeka's In Command daughter, Charisma Command. He won several championships in hand and in harness for Cricket Coleman, who purchased him from us as a two year old. He was a bit difficult to start, but ended up being a World Champion show horse. As Tommy Caisse once said to me, the great ones have always got to be a little crazy! Sid was a great one. :-)

TARA'S CAROLINA 1995 Bay Mare

I wish we had been able to keep Carolina long enough to realize her potential. We bought her as a weanling from Tara Farm. She was out of the great Trophy daughter, Southerly Capella, and was sired by Tara's War Paint, a horse I believe to be one of the coolest Morgans to ever live (War Paint is now owned by Dragonsmeade and spends his time in their pastures in Kentucky). We sold Carolina as a two year old due to personal circumstances, but believed then, and now, she would have gone far as a show mare and broodmare. We look at her photos and are reminded of how much we loved her.

Tara’s Cotillion

TARA'S COTILLION 1979 Bay Mare

We salute Tara's Cotillion as she was our initial introduction to Tara Farm and the beginning of a friendship that continues today. I first saw Cotillion at the Morgan Grand National when she was just two years old, and went to visit her in her stall. I continued my following of the Tara Farm horses for decades and feel my study of their breeding program has helped shape the decisions we make in the RWF program today, relative to effective linebreeding. Cotillion came to Ridgewood late in life and produced just one foal for us, RWF Dances With Wolves, a bay colt sired by one of our favorite Tara Farm stallions, Tara's War Paint.

TARA'S RACHEL - Retired 1994 Bay Mare

Tara's Rachel is sired by one of Ridgewood's favorite horses, Tara's Supreme Fox. We bought her because she was out of the incomparable Southerly Maria, one of the breed's great producing Trophy daughters. After spending several years with Marilyn Esteb at Stone Pine Farm in Larkspur, Colorado, Rachel returns to Ridgewood in 2013 where, hopefully, she will have a future RWF-prefix foal for us and eventually retire in our fields.

TARA'S SABLE 1994 Dark Bay Mare

Sable was our princess. We first saw her at the Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show as a yearling and we knew we had to own her. We bought her on the spot and brought her home with us to Michigan. She was perhaps one of the most beautiful mares we have owned and a daughter of Tara's Cherokee, a sire we continue to hold in very high regard. Sable produced two foals for us. The first was a bay colt by Nobility that we named RWF Bay De Noc. He is pictured at her side in the photograph. She is also the dam of Joe Partain's good Harlequin mare, RWF DiBella. After producing a few champions for Roxanne Sardelli's Sarde Morgans, Sable returned to Anne Wyland's Ancan Morgans program where she is much loved and cherished as a member of the family.

TARA'S SUPREME FOX 1989 Brown Gelding

Tara's Supreme Fox was one of Ridgewood's all-time favorite horses. It broke our hearts to have to sell him due to relocation and new circumstances. He was the kind of horse that loved to be hooked and driven down the logging trails in rural Northern Michigan. He would take care of a child, an adult, or an experienced whip. He had an ears-up cocky attitude and a heart as big as life itself. He was a blessing in our lives and we miss him greatly.

Thunderbolt TBM

THUNDERBOLT TBM 1979 Black Stallion

T-Bolt was an impressive black stallion son of Rimlo Black Valiant and our foundation mare, Hylee's Justintime. We had great fun showing him as a yearling at the North Star Morgan Show and winning the yearling futurity there. We also showed him as a two year old in hand and in harness very successfully at the regional level--Jackie Sweeney was his trainer. T-Bolt died of a twisted intestine late in his two year old year and we were devastated. It was our first experience losing a horse to colic and a very painful process for us. We have fond memories of Thunderbolt even though he was with us for a very short time.

TRE Master Of Disguise

TRE MASTER OF DISGUISE 2002 Brown Stallion

I said 'No No No!' and Julie said 'Yes Yes Yes!' when we purchased 'Marty' as a long weanling. Julie saw the potential that I seemed to have missed as he went on to be named the 2003 Reserve World Champion Stallion when competing in OKC as a yearling. We later sold him to Debra Hurst Walters who had her own success with this great stallion before she, in turn, sold him to Deb Phelan. Deb currently owns and shows him successfully as an amateur horse and he still collects championships in hand and in harness every year.

The photos presented here were taken during Marty's successful yearling year when he was owned by Ridgewood.

Her 2014 colt by Mizrahi

U-TWO - Leased 2004 Brown Mare

I first saw U-Two as a weanling in the Breeder's Sweepstakes in 2004. I immediately fell in love with her and followed her career closely. As a two-year old, she stood Reserve World Champion Mare behind our own RWF Over The Rainbow.

As fate would have it, PlayMor leased 'Ruby' to breed to Isaac and we leased U-Two and also bred her to Isaac. While her pedigree strays from our typically used lines, we value the great lines behind this mare and also her excellence as an individual. We are excited for her black filly to start her show career in 2017.

We purchased HVK Noble Rose from them, as well as Now and Forever, and they purchased RWF Wild Child from us. We saw Now And Forever in the Breeder's Sweepstakes (see photo) and we made arrangements to purchase her for Ridgewood. We showed her through her yearling year prior to selling her out East where she continues to be a winning show mare for her owners in New York.

'Iris' is an intensely-bred Serenity Masterpiece mare. She is also a full sister to the dam of the multi-titled World Champion Stallion, Dressed Up, by Mizrahi. When she became available for lease, we took the opportunity to breed her to Mizrahi. She will have a filly foal in March 2015 and we are very excited for this event.

Valiant Tony with his best friend, Jake Hendzel

VALIANT TONY 1980 Bay Stallion

SHEER JOY are the words that come to mind when I think of our association with Valiant Tony. We are indebted to Mrs. Pugh for sharing him with us in his senior years. He produced just two foals for us, a chesnut gelding out of FCF Elana that we named RWF Triumphant, and a bay colt out of Beaming Beauty that we named RWF Lord Of The Dance. We were devastated when Tony broke his leg at Ridgewood but, through the expertise of the veterinarians at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, he was able to live a long, happy and wonderful life under the care of Jan Currie at Elysian Fields. Much can be said about his show career with Whitney Stables, but for us it was just a love affair with a great Morgan stallion. Rest well, dear friend...

WHISPERING WILD CRY 2005 Bay Mare

We added Lola to our group in 2014, primarily due to her dam line. Whispering Out Loud has been a top producing mare for Florence Scanlon's Whispering Morgans. We are familiar with Serenity Masterpiece and it has had prominence in our breeding program through DBA Street Talk. Since Lola is a direct daughter of Masterpiece, she exemplifies the Flaire x Masterpiece golden cross. We are pleased to have her in our program and she is confirmed in foal with a Mizrahi filly for 2016.

NEWSFLASH: Lola presented us with a bay filly by Mizrahi on 3/16/2016. We have named her RWF Scherezade.


Lola is confirmed in foal to Merriehill After Hours for a 2017 foal.

Winden Mai Tai as a yearling

WINDEN MAI TAI 2006 Bay Mare

We spotted Mai Tai on Tami Johnson's website and knew, in the moment, we needed to own her. We had never seen such a laid-back shoulder on a weanling in all our years in the breed. And to top it off, she had a four-cornered balanced trot and the attitude of a show horse at a very early age. It's no wonder, though, as she is linebred to Beamington and when you say Beamington you say 'show!'

Brian Berry and Victoria Markley visited Ridgewood and they knew they wanted to own her. She now makes her home at RDL Morgans in Santa Cruz, New Mexico.

Wings Of Fire

WINGS OF FIRE 1988 Chestnut Gelding

Gosh! He was a great horse. We never showed Fire, but I can't think of a week when we owned him that we didn't hook him to a buggy and drive down roads and logging trails and over hill and dale. He was an absolute blast. We used to set up obstacle courses for him and drive him through them and I was convinced then, and now, that carriage driving would be something I would love. Julie got over her fear of driving thanks to Fire. He was hot, but sensible, a little more horse than she was accustomed to driving. But drive she did and he took care of her. Fire was a very very good boy!

WYNNE COMMOTION 1978 Bay Stallion

Most people who know Morgans and have been around for a good long while remember Wynne Commotion. He survived a fire in Michigan and endured burns across the majority of his body. A good sire of show horses and broodmares, he sired 66 foals before coming to us late in life. We spoiled him, keeping him knee-deep in straw and shrouded both summer and winter in blankets that would protect him from the sun and the snow. A beautiful son of Waseeka's In Command, we include him here in tribute to his greatness of heart. We were blessed to have him at Ridgewood and in our lives.

Rest well, old boy.
