Has been a busy month, great fun though.  Waiting patiently for the recipient to start to show progress for foaling, she is carrying a Fenjala x Schwarzenegger embryo and is 338 days now. 

Five horses headed out to their new homes: Esprentina NPF with her colt Dalton to Michigan USA, Hallstatt and Stratford to Ontario, and Stellarton to Nova Scotia.  Farm is feeling quieter with 19 here.

Santerina and Bellevue are coming along in their work with Willow.  For someone looking for a nice 3 year old, these two are interesting young prospects. 

The little guys are growing like weeds, such a nice group of sweet babies.  From left to right: Legato (Londonderry/Dauphin/Weltmeyer), Sentinel (Schwarzenegger/Rienzi/Davignon), and Day Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall). These guys are having loads of fun together.

For those from the US looking at Aileron Stables sale horses, I am heading to Maine to meet a shipper ~May 31st. I have one box stall in the trailer available and the shipper has plenty of space.

April 13th, 2018

SPS Wonderful Dream had a handsome black Dauphin colt at 12:15 AM, she was at day 337.  He is as cute as a button and already showing an engaging fun personality.  Pictures and video to come as he unfolds.


April 3rd, 2018

I am very much looking forward to having the two 3 year olds undersaddle.  Bellevue and Santerina (pictured below) will be started later this spring.  They have had a fulfilling winter being turned out with the broodmares, but they are definitely looking for some entertainment lol. They both have had some off farm adventures visiting a local indoor and popping over a crossrail on the longside.  Great fun seeing them add to their repertoire. 





March 22nd, 2018

Storm day on PEI, which means, update the website :)

The first two broodmares are making progress with Esprentina NPF (Tina) at day 331 and SPS Wonderful Dream (Martina) at day 315.  Tina is now within normal range (320-370), but I suspect a little while longer.  

Tina and her 2018 in-utero Dauphin foal have sold to US breeder Kimberely Sexton Ennett and MarKim Farms.  Congratulations!! Pictured Below.


I most definitely have foal fever after seeing all the lovely foals landing all over the world through Facebook.

Pictured below: Fairview :)





October 31st, 2017




The fall and winter are our favorite times to sit and dream about the coming foals.  Fillies or colts? Black, bay, chestnut??  Nick and I speculate on promising matches and debate the breeding choices every winter.  Making a plan in the off season makes the busy spring easier.   Though as anyone in the breeding world knows, those plans can quickly change and you need a), b), and c) options.  

Our 2018 Lineup!

Esprentina NPF (Sir Oldenburg/Florestan) x Dauphin: A tall dark extravagant mover for the dressage ring?
SPS Wonderful Dream (Weltruhm/Donnerhall) x Dauphin: Beautiful typey and correct dark dressage prospect?
Rimini (Rienzi/Davignon) x Schwarzenegger: Another powerhouse that is dual-purpose with push?
Dutchess Alyce (Dauphin/Weltmeyer) x Londonderry: Typey, elegant, with suspension and the sweetest personality?
SPS Brentacia (Brentano II/Imperator) x Dauphin: Correct, beautiful, maybe another one capable of training up to GP?
SPS Fenjala (Fabriano/Prince Orac xx) x Schwarzenegger ET: Character plus, beautiful, elastic, graceful, dressage prospect?

October 2nd, 2017





Nick and I just returned from a wonderful 10 day vacation out West.  We took in beautiful parts of BC from Kelowna to Squamish up to Fort St. John.  Some of the crazy highlights were the Northern Lights from the hot tub with Susi Q, learning to two-step (omg), meeting a musician that will be one to watch for in the future, hiking trails I wasn't sure I would be able to get back down, and the beautiful Sea to Sky highway.  We continued onto Alberta, visiting family and zip lining into Cold Lake (aptly named).  Had lots of laughs and good exercise (basketball with the fam jam was pretty awesome).  We were lucky enough to visit a few Hanoverian farms in our travels.  Met many lovely people along the way and saw some very nice horses.  Thank you to all for the hospitality. 
FYI Squamish, BC farmer's market, wow-great vibe and lovely people (and the food!!!)
Thank you to Morgan Louis for farm sitting, Amanda Stright for helping out, and for haylage service extraordinaire from Pius Walsh. 
Giant thank you to Nick for organising all of this, I am occasionally a hermit, so it took some planning for this to all pan out.

We had a wonderful inspection at the Crapaud Agriplex on September 1st.  There was a mare performance test, mare inspection, mare show, foal inspection, and foal show.  Many beautiful Hanoverians from around the Maritimes congregated at the agriplex.  My favorite day of the year!!

We were super proud of Fairview (Furst Nymphenburg/Brentano II/Imperator) for winning Champion dressage foal.  We had purchased her dam, SPS Brentacia, last fall while she was in-foal to Furst Nymphenburg from Sharon Beard.  Michelle DeGarie was quick to buy Fairview at 8 days of age :) 

We had some very nice comments on our three other foals: Stellarton, Dark Dreamer, and Stratford.  We are hanging onto Stellarton and Dark Dreamer for the time being. 

Virginia Cooke and I then traveled to the Parkwood Inspection on the morning of September 2nd to take in their 2 day show. Beautiful inspection and quality horses.  Ted and Elaine Parkinson were so welcoming and the best hosts! 


August 21st, 2017

Video of Siskel undersaddle, only plays on a computer :)  He is growing up.
Such a smart fellow that took it all in stride, 10 rides.




August 7th, 2017

One of our young horse buyers was down for a visit and fell in love with Stratford.   We helped make a little switch, and Stratford will be heading to Ontario with Hallstatt.  Swan Song will be on the market shortly.  She is coming into her own, and has such presence.  For those that have admired this filly for the last year, here is your opportunity.

We are very excited that our embryo from Schwarzenegger x SPS Fenjala has held on in the recipient. Yay! A repeat of Stellarton!
So far 6 confirmed for 2018.  We are working to add one more, fingers crossed!!!


July 23rd, 2017

Three weeks left for the collection season for Schwarzenegger and Dauphin. We are able to work on fairly short notice. We have a wonderful local FedEx office that goes the extra mile. Touch base today if you would like to book a LFG contract and try to get the rest of those open mares in-foal.


Stratford (Schwarzenegger/Rienzi/Davignon) enjoying a nap in the straw.  This is lovely horse weather with warm temps, steady breeze, and the horse flies have backed off.



July 16th, 2017

Having great fun with our two three year olds; Siskel and Belfast.  We are very lucky to have Willow M'Cloud helping us out this summer, she is doing a great job.  Siskel has been lightly backed and is taking it all in stride. Belfast is next!

SPS Brentacia was confirmed in-foal to Dauphin for a late May foal.  That brings the tally up to five so far.  Unfortunately SPS Fenjala's Dauphin embryo did not stick in the recipient.  Will try again :)

Getting prepared for the Hanoverian Inspection.  It will be September 1st at the Crapaud Agriplex.  Will be a great opportunity to see all the lovely Hanoverian foals from around the Maritimes.  18 foals are expected to attend!


July 13th, 2017

Happy to announce Fairview (Furst Nymphenburg/Brentano II/Imperator) has sold to Michelle DeGarie of NB.
This is one elastic moving charmer.

June 29th, 2016

Meet Stellarton! Our embryo transfer colt out of SPS Fenjala (Fabriano/Prince Orac xx/Absatz) and by Schwarzenegger.  We are quite smitten with him. The wonderful recipient mare Cassie did a great job carrying this colt and is an excellent mother. 

We are happy to have another interesting line-up of foals for 2018:

SPS Wonderful Dream x Dauphin
Esprentina NPF x Dauphin
Rimini x Schwarzenegger
Duchess Alyce x Londonderry
SPS Fenjala x Dauphin (ET, to be confirmed)
SPS Brentacia x Dauphin (To be confirmed)

We may aim for one or two more with SPS Fenjala via embryo transfer.





June 15th, 2017

Newest addition, a beautiful chestnut filly by Furst Nymphenburg out of SPS Brentacia (Brentano II/Imperator).  The filly was bred by Sharon Beard of ON.




June 4th, 2017

A big welcome to Stratford, new colt born June 1st.  Pedigree: Schwarzenegger/Rienzi/Davignon.





May 29th, 2017

We are happy to announce we have two confirmed pregnancies so far this season.  Esprentina NPF and SPS Wonderful Dream are both confirmed in-foal to Dauphin for 2018.

The stallions are producing many pregnancies around North America.  Semen quality is fantastic.  Call us today if you would like to book to either of these dark beauties.

We are enjoying seeing the arrival of the beautiful foals for our mare owners.   


May 20th, 2017

Duchess Alyce produced a tall leggy dark Schwarzenegger filly on Thursday night. Unfortunately there were some foaling complications and the foal had internal damage, she passed at 30 hours old.  Ali is doing ok and is back out with her pasture mates.


May 3rd, 2017

Very excited to introduce Dark Dreamer (Dauphin/Weltruhm/Donnerhall).  A beautiful black filly born at 4pm on May 2nd, day 338. 
We have been waiting quite some time for another filly from SPS Wonderful and are very happy to welcome her to the farm.


May 2nd, 2017

Waiting patiently for SPS Wonderful Dream to foal, she is day 338 and dripping milk at the moment.  

We bred Esprentina NPF to Dauphin last week.  Fingers crossed for a black dot in the near future.

The stallions are glad the season is in full swing :)

We have some fun crosses planned for 2018, please check the sales page for more information.


April 20th, 2017


We are pleased to offer Santerina for the discerning buyer.  This gorgeous grey filly was to be retained for our breeding program, however, our size preference is 16.2hh with substance and medium bone.  This filly will likely finish 15.3-16hh and is quite refined.  For someone looking for a wonderful mind, and powerful movement-this is your filly.

April 8th, 2017

Wolkentanz's Willow HB (Wolkentanz II/Sir Oldenburg/Florestan) 2016 HV filly left today for her new home in Maryland, USA.  We wish her owners all the best with her undersaddle and in the breeding shed.




March 28th, 2017

Some dates to keep an eye out for with collections through the season.  

FedEx:  Canada http://www.fedex.com/ca_english/services/serviceguide/holidays.html

FedEx: United States http://www.fedex.com/us/service-guide/holiday-schedule.html


SPS Wonderful Dream is 303 days along today, slowly but surely we are getting there.  Love brushing the mares and feeling those foals kicking.  I would guess she will foal April 26th-April 29th (ish lol).

There are two mares quite close behind her, Duchess Alyce (292 days) and Rimini (290 days), both are carrying Schwarzenegger foals.



March 10th, 2017

Started a new page as the "News" page was big and slow to load with all the files and videos.

First shipment of the season left today for Wisconsin.  Dauphin was the lucky fellow.  We have a wonderful local FedEx depot in Charlottetown, they were quite funny, said seeing the boxes come in is their first real sign of spring lol.  

Both Belgrade and Hallstatt were gelded last Monday. 

Looking forward to the first foal of the season; Dauphin x SPS Wonderful Dream.  Guessing late April, early May.  She is not nearly as big as she was last year carrying Hallstatt.  Please be a filly.  We are hoping in a big way to retain a filly from "Martina" for our breeding program.

There are 19 horses on the farm at the moment, what a nice number :)  They are not all ours: there are four weanlings being boarded, three horses on breeding lease, and one recipient on lend.  Our aim is to over winter about 14 for next year, we'll see how it goes.  We have reduced taking outside horses at this time to focus on our own. 

Happy to announce we have filled the summer position on the farm, thank you to all that applied.
