Known to friends as Faith, this beautiful filly is the product of almost forty years’ diligence at the renowned Arop Stud. A lady-in-waiting of the breed, her breeding is impeccable; her looks, breathtaking.

Faithy came to us after the sale of one top horse and then the death of another, leaving me brokenhearted and empty-handed to lay down the fragments of my dressage dream at God’s feet. He chose to give me that dream back, making it into something far more powerful and holy – a calling – through the kindness of the man that bred Faith and gave her to me.

For now she is a baby growing up and learning how to function in the collision of horse and human societies. Eventually, the plan is for dressage to happen. Always, for the glory of King Jesus.

Faith is stunning and she knows it. Kind of a diva, she’s intelligent, sensitive, and doesn’t have a bad bone in her body. She loves food (but only the way she likes it) and trotting around her field in a ridiculously floaty manner.
