It all began in 1975 with the purchase of the yearling *Ramses Fayek son, Amurath Elan.  Terrified of a young stallion, but determined to learn how to handle him, Janie Greenberg began the now very successful Rideaufield Farms breeding programme.  Elan proved to be an excellent choice - Regional Reserve Champion Stallion as a two-year-old and then on to being a successful sire....

Always with an eye to quality and correct conformation, the mares of Rideaufield were carefully chosen.  When the time came to look for a stallion to breed to the Amurath Elan daughters, Three-B Rasheik++ came to Rideaufield.  Under Rideaufield's love and guidance, Three-B Rasheik++ earned his Legion of Merit (a few performance points short of his Legion of Supreme Merit)  and was named Canadian National Top Ten Stallion.  He became the heart of Rideaufield and in many ways a "once in a lifetime horse".   An IAHA Top Ten Juvenile Sweepstakes Sire (even until many years after his passing) - Three-B Rasheik++  put Rideaufield "on the map".
And then, in 1990, the beautiful *Bask son, Amurath Baikal, came to Rideaufield....  The breeding emphasis switched - from a largely, highly successful Half Arabian breeding programme - to an equally highly successful purebred programme. 

Amurath Baikal sired many beautiful Champions worldwide and has left a legacy here at Rideaufield: 

  • with his beautiful son Earl Grey++/ (United States Top Ten Futurity Colt, Region 18 Champion Stallion and Eastern Canadian Breeders Champion Stallion, Region 16 Champion Hunter Pleasure ATR (2008 and 2009!), Region 18 Top Five, Hunter Pleasure, Open), 2011 US National Top Ten Hunter Pleasure ATR Select Rider, Region 16 and 18 Regional Champion Hunter Pleasure ATR Select Rider (with Janie Greenberg)
  • and his full sister Simply The Best - Region 16 Champion Mare, East Coast Champion Mare and dam of 2011 US National Champion Country English Pleasure AOTR 18-35, Simply Afire (by Afire Bey V).

And in 2004, the elderly *Padron son, Pomerol, made the long trek from Midwest to Rideaufield Farms.  He spent his last years with us and sired some wonderful foals, the majority of them beautiful chestnut fillies!  (More about Pomerol on our In Memoriam page....)



Currently Rideaufield Farms stands two wonderful stallions:

  • Earl Grey++/ (Amurath Baikal  x  NV Masira (by Bey Shah+));

  • Xceptshahn (Bey Shah+  x  RSD Khaptivation (by Khemosabi++++).
