Manon is a 2002 Purebred French Canadian Horse mare owned by Karen Bentley. Karen imported Manon from Quebec in 2014 after having her bred to stallion, Litjens Nava Randy. Manon foaled in March 2015 to give Reindance Farms their first purebred foal, Reindance Randy Contessa. Contessa has since been sold to Dawn Rhoads of Coos Bay, Oregon to be her dressage and eventing star. The Reindance team is so excited to see what these two will do in the future.
Now, Manon is taking a break from being a broodmare and is doing very well entering the show world doing Combined Driving with Karen and Dressage and Working Equitation with Kristina.
We do definitely plan on having more foals out of her however, tentatively planning on breeding her again in 2018.
Manons lines come from the old driving stock of the breed, which you can see with her build being a little heavier. The lines are:
LA GORGENDIERE MIQUETTE-3891-
She is also one of the few remaining horses who date back to the stallion, Pitro, whose line is now considered dead due to no remaining stallions. Only some mares remain.
Manon's outstanding characteristics include very big flashy dressage movement, calm willing temperament, great work ethic, solid, robust build, and rare coloring. (sorrel is seen in only 10% of the breed)
