Borschette (1985 - 2007) (Chette to her friends) was first and foremost a great "mommy".   She is shown here with her 24 hour old American Warmblood filly, Dafydd's Dolly, foaled April 27, 1997.

Before she became a broodmare, Borschette was a thoroughbred race horse.  She comes from a very proud lineage.

Here is Borschette competing in the jumping class, at the show held on Basinstoke Farm. Borschette enjoyed jumping as much as she enjoyed Dressage, even though she had never seen jumps or jump standards before, she was confident, and willing to try the open cross country course.
