Morgans for the Fun of it! Breeding for the Sport of it!
What's New At Chandelle?
This has been an exciting summer at Chandelle this year. Chandelle High Noon has continued to exceed our expectations in the carriage show ring, with wins at Penn-Ohio, including winning the Overall Carriage Championship, a combination of points from both Performance and Obstacle classes. Most recently, we finished a fun week at Walnut Hill, with ribbons in 6 classes, including the Blue in single Horse Roadcart Pleasure Turnout. The Saylor wagon was also fun to drive in progressive, and very comfortable on the pleasure drive. We will be using that more next year I think. Next stop will be the NYMHS Regional championship show, with Cooper in carriage, and Chandelle High Light the Sky debuting under saddle, as well as pleasure driving.
Chandelle High Noon and Acorn Ridge Black Diamond delivered a lovely filly full of spunk and trot to spare. Chandelle High Noon has had a great season so far. At WNY Morgan 'Super Cooper' was the Carriage Champion AND earned the Horse Show Wire's Best Performance of the Show; the first carrigae horse to receive this honor! Super Cooper was also Carriage Champion at the CNY Morgan show! JoAnn and Super Cooper are off to Penn Ohio this weekend, wish them luck! Chandelle High Lite the Sky (HVK DragonBeat x Acorn Ridge Black Diamond) won her Jr Pleasure Driving class at WNY. This stunning black mare is for sale, going lovely in harness and under saddle.

Chandelle High Noon (Cooper) has had a stellar show year, competing in 5 shows, and garnering 5 Carriage Hi point Championships. Additionally, in our first trip to the Grand National in Oklahoma, Cooper, Liz and Jo Ann handily won the Double Jeopardy Driving Competition, and earned two other reds, and two 4th place ribbons in the World Championship working and timed obstacles, respectively.
Cooper and Acorn Ridge Black Diamond are expecting a foal in April, and we are looking forward to this baby with much anticipation.
Chandelle High Phoenix (Boomer) Cooper x Chandelle Victoria is a 2011 handsome colt, and growing beautifully. He is sweet, and seems to have dad’s brains as well as his trot and pretty pretty head. We are looking forward to spring, and watching this one grow.
Chandelle High Lite The Sky spent the summer in training with Sunny Acres, and had a successful show debut, taking a nice 2nd in her first Pleasure driving classes. This high stepping black filly is already 15+ hands, and still growing. Next year should be a super one for her too.
We are pleased to announce that we have leased the black stallion Shazam’s Legacy and he will be standing to outside mares in the spring. He is 15+ hands, and has a lovely head and eye, with a long balanced neck. His pedigree is full of classic old blood, including Flyhawk, Spenmay Society Don and Linsley Lee. Watch for more information about him soon.
Chandelle High Chancellor moved to his new home in Olympia, WA this fall. Congratulations to Lori on the purchase of Chance, they make a great team!
Chandelle High Noon, aka Cooper, (Big Bend Doc Davis x Equinox Magnifikate) will be standing at stud in 2012, to a limited number of mares.
Another year in the memory banks, and some great memories for sure. Trail rides, dressage clinics, horse shows and hunter paces! Lots of good miles on great horses.

What Makes Chandelle Farm Go Around?
Chandelle Farm is a small family owned farm in western New York. We have
been raising Morgans for over twenty years. The first attraction to Morgans
was to their disposition, beauty and versatility; the focus of the breeding
program has been to capture and maintain those qualities. Chandelle Farm has
concentrated on using "Old" Morgan bloodlines (like Flyhawk, Upwey Ben Don,
Chasley Superman, Pecos, and Ulendon), with excellent results. The horses
are sweet, good minded and athletic--fully capable of being the cherished
versatile Morgan. Chandelle Morgans have successfully competed in all levels
of competition in open and breed shows and in many disciplines, including
carriage driving, western, hunter, jumping, dressage, english pleasure, and
pleasure driving as well as 4-H, pony club, three-day events, and trail riding.
Most importantly, these Morgans are all family friends and their owners have
loads of stories, pictures, and ribbons to prove it!
Chandelle Farm generally has one or two foals a year and usually has horses
for sale. We are always happy to show off these treasures. Please contact JoAnn
Squier at email@example.com or at the
address listed for more information. If you are looking for more information
on the Morgan Horse check out the New
York State Morgan Horse Society or the American
Morgan Horse Association. If you are interested in eventing and or carriage
