Proven hunter stallion with a unique breeding combination of a Cor de la Bryere son out of a Capitol I mare

  Crown’s current owner Gail Morey was unaware of his Olympic-caliber breeding when she bought him in the spring of 2006. She’d simply been knocked out by his beauty and jumping style while competing against him in the hunter arena. She felt lucky to be able to buy him as a show partner and was blown away when she began to study his bloodlines and understand their implications.

  Gail describes Crown as her horse of a lifetime. Thanks to the stallion’s unique mix of awesome talent and lovely temperament, their ongoing odyssey has been filled with joy and excitement. The sheer fun of campaigning Crown has taken priority over marketing the stallion thus far, Gail admits. Now, the prospect of providing others with their own dream horse, through Crown’s offspring, adds a new chapter to what is already an incredible journey.

  “Crown Affair has put wings on dreams that I never imagined before I bought him,” concludes Gail. “I am thrilled to offer, through frozen semen, the chance for others to have their own horse of a lifetime.”

  Continuing Crown’s remarkably consistent track record of show ring success, Gail and Crown have won numerous Amateur Owner Hunter championships and top year-end awards. With professionals in the irons, Crown has sailed to blues and tri-colors in the 4’ Regular Working Hunter divisions. The new Hunter Derby format that demands scope, courage and style is custom made for Crown. As of mid 2010, he’d won two The Chronicle of the Horse/USHJA International Hunter Derbies and finished champion and reserve in two other $10,000 Hunter Derbies. This stallion’s crowd-wowing performances stand out in this elite company.

  “He knows when it’s a special event and he rises to the occasion,” says World Champion Hunter Rider John French, Crown’s Derby pilot. “He’s a true showman,” adds Gail. “He loves to show off on an open field with big, beautiful jumps. His desire to perform is one of the reasons he has been so successful.”

  Seems the stallion saves his flash and showmanship for the show ring. At home, he’s all pet and no prima donna. “Some of my fondest memories have occurred away from the shows and out of the limelight,” Gail relays. “In lessons, he tries his best for me and is typically unflappable, no matter what might be asked of him.”
