The following horses are in professional training with Jennie and are offered for sale.
Indie is a 2004 Dutch Warmblood by Vechta with a great mind and wonderful gaits. He has an amazing personality as well as plenty of talent, always putting down a competitive dressage test, and has jump to spare. He finished 3rd in his first CCI2* at the end of the 2012 season and at the start of the 2014 season won the CIC2* at Poplar Place. Indie would be the perfect partner for a young rider who wants a schoolmaster at the lower levels or to be competitive at NAJYRC or an adult amateur. Indie is also talented enough for the Hunter/Jumper world.
Linford aka “Liam” is a 2009 Holstenier imported from Germany who is currently competing at Training level. He is an exceptional mover with scores as low as 19 and super jumper with an impressive record. He has been in a professional program but has also been competed by an amateur owner five times, jumping around clean with his rider nearly catch riding him! He has placed in the top three at 10 out of his 15 starts and has an amazing personality with a big future ahead of him. He is a barn favorite and we will be sad to see him go, but sale is forced by an expanding family. He will be competing Preliminary by the end of the summer. Liam is lovely!
Footsteps aka “Zoey” is a 16.1h 2010 Oldenburg mare (Fürst Impressio x Dorada, by Sir Wimborne). Zoey was wonderfully started by her owner, a Grand Prix dressage rider, before coming to Brannigan Eventing to try her hand as an event horse. In her first ever jump schools she impressed us with her rideability, bravery, and scope. Zoey combines a kind and forgiving personality with beautiful gaits making her ideal for a young rider, amateur, or professional to develop into a winning partner. Currently schooling first level dressage and jumping small courses. We think she will go far!
Broomer is a 2009 dark bay Thoroughbred gelding (Thunder Gulch x Sweep Up, by Skip Away). Broomer is quiet and uncomplicated with three good gaits and an excellent jump. Very willing and eager to please. Broomer has finished well in his first starts at Novice and recently made the move up to Training level, finishing in 4th place at Rocking Horse. Currently schooling First Level dressage and 3’3″ courses. A barn favorite!
RECENTLY SOLD HORSES
“Albert” is a 2000 16.3h, Canadian Sport Horse gelding. The Alchemyst is well known as a strong and very capable 4* mount. Incredibly sound, consistently one of the soundest upper level horses in the country. He completed the Rolex CCI4* in 2009 and 2010, and since then has had top placings at multiple 3* and Advanced level events. “Albert” is a very talented jumper and is exceptionally bold. He has taken a young rider around her first CCI1* and Intermediate horse trial, and he is ready to win at Young Riders in the 1* or 2* and show someone the ropes around the upper levels. We wish Lauren Sherrill the best of luck with this special boy!
William Penn is a 17 hand 2002 bay Irish Sport Horse gelding by Condios. “Penn” is a wonderful competitor with a great mind, three incredible gaits, and a scopey jump.

Whitfield is a 2010 16.1h dark bay Thoroughbred gelding (Private Vow x Seda Fina, by Known Fact) who was lightly raced by Michael Matz. He has been nicely let down and restarted and is ready to go in any direction. Whitfield has three good gaits and is easy to get along with. He finished in 2nd place on his dressage score of 28 at Novice level at his first horse trial, and placed 3rd at his second horse trial to Novice level, finishing on his dressage score again.
Meadow Tan, aka “Tango”
Tango is a 2009 16.2h dark bay unraced TB mare (Meadow Monster x Tanisha, by Shadow Show). In 2014 Tango made the move up to Novice and has been jumping consistent clear rounds in the jumping phases. Easy on the flat and over fences with three good paces and a comfortable jump.
Darkwatch, aka “Darkie”
Darkwatch is a 2008 bay Thoroughbred gelding (Royal Academy x Without, by Unbridled). Darkwatch was a successful jump race horse before switching gears and learning the ropes of Eventing. He quickly impressed us with his incredible gaits and athleticism coupled with an unmatched good mind. Congratulations to Erin Hofmann on the purchase of this fabulous horse!
Etoile is a 2005 light bay thoroughbred imported from Belgium, measuring 16.3h. Competed to the Intermediate level in the discipline of eventing and represented Ontario at the North American Junior & Young Riders Championships at the 1* level, summer of 2012 and 2013. Etoile is suited for a confident rider who intends to either pursue young riders as well as compete to the 2* level. He is also suited for a rider looking to compete in the equitation ring or as a 1.20m jumper. He is a true sweetheart in the barn who adores his mints, easy for farriers/vets and is great to load/trailer on anything. Etoile to date has had no health or soundness issues and has always been an easy keeper.
Best wishes to Etoile’s new owner, Aubrey Wagner!
50 Cent, aka “Curtis”
Curtis is a 2007, 16.1 hand, bay TB gelding. He has never raced and has three lovely gates with an amazing mind to match. He will be competing with Jennie this summer, and completed his first Beginner Novice at The Maryland HT.

Right Above It, aka “Carter”
Right Above It, or Carter as he is known around the barn is a 2008 16.3 hand imported Irish Sport Horse who was found and imported by Flynn Sport Horses through Carol Gees Fernhill Sport Horses in Ireland.
Jennie purchased Carter from Matt Flynn with the help of Nina and Tim Gardner. Carter has it all! He is a big mover with a great attitude who loves his job. He competed at the Training level in 2013 with many top 5 finishes to his credit and looks to be a big time horse in the years to come. Carter has started the 2014 season off with a bang winning back to back Training level events at Rocking Horse and Ocala Horse Properties, finishing on his dressage score in the 20′s both times. Jennie and Carter recently placed second in the Preliminary at Rocking Horse Winter II. Best of luck to Carter and his new owner.
Crimson Tide, aka “Red”
16.2h, 2003 unraced Thoroughbred gelding. Crimson Tide aka “Red” has it all! Wonderful movement, great scope and he makes time easily. Currently competing successfully at Preliminary eventing and in the 4ft Jumpers, he is ready to move up in both disciplines. This talented horse is also winning at 2nd Level and schooling 3rd and 4th level dressage! Red would even do well as an equitation horse, and he would make an excellent Hunter Derby horse. He has no vices, he clips, ties, stands for farrier & self loads on trailer. We wish all the best to Red and his new owner.
Walkabout, aka “Will”
Walkabout, or Will as he is known around the barn, is a 2001 thoroughbred who had solid results at the Intermediate & 2* Levels in 2010 before moving up to Advanced during the 2011 season where he was 2nd and 5th at his first 2 starts at the level! In 2012 he continued to perform well, completing two CIC3* events and should be in top form for 2013.
Will is all heart and loves every challenge put in front of him. When unsure he often gives out more effort than is needed and is bold as well as careful. Will has the heart and gallop to be a true competitor. Congratulations to Lynne Bauer on purchasing this incredible horse.
