Thaddeus by Timotheus out of Toyota by Enrico Caruso *E*Ps* Coming four year old out for his first drive with his owner Carol Cande after spending three months in Florida training for driving with Wanetta Dotson Dyer. Regarding his training with Waneeta, she said, "His manners are natural. I didn't lunge him for 20 minutes to calm him down or any of that nonsense. He is what you see. For all that I have heard about Trakehners he should be a hot blooded exciteable horse."
Carol reported, "he was such a dreamboat, steady confident, we drove over a roaring brook spouting from a culvert, thru mud puddles, he only flicked an ear to ask and trotted right on, past the trailer park with barking dogs, past all the equipment the tractor company, past cars coming and going steady as can be!"

On September 9th we had 11 mares inspected by Eberhard Biesenthal for the American Trakehner Association. They represented seven different owners from around New England. As a group, the mares scored very well with a median of 52 points! The High Point award was tied with two mares at 54 points. "Aryana" by Kostolany out of Ada *M* by Enrico Caruso *E*Ps*owned by Susan Berger of Morehouse Farm and "Lucinda TL" by Inamorato out of Lily of the Valley by Unkenruf *E*Pg*, dam of the Approved stallion Lord Luciano. The inspection was followed by a mini foal clinic where everyone participated in the scoring of the 8 foals. Photos to follow.
He was bred by Tylord and sold as a foal to Meg. He also has completed his Performance requirements as he has been competing at PSG and Inter.1 so he is now Lord Locksley *Ps*. This makes his dam Lida the mother of two approved stallions with the approval of Lord Cosmo last November. She will now be an Elite mare. This family originated with our foundation mare Lonka by Heros out of Lohe. A State's Premium mare, Lonka's last foal for us was Lida, an embryo transfer we did here on the farm. The German Trakehner Verband awarded Lonka her own mare family three years ago, the first one given out in North America. This family has the approved stallions Laiken *Pb*, Lord Luciano, Lord Cosmo and Lord Locksley *Ps*. Last week Lida gave birth to a beautiful bay colt by Elbiskus (Ibikus) we named Lord Caruso.

Happy 30th Birthday Esna and Akita! We imported Esna as a yearling in 1981. She is one of our foundation mares and has had 12 live foals and 2 stillborn foals out of 16 trips to the breeding shed. She is a Great Grandmother and in our mare herd we have her daughter Empress and Granddaughter Esmerelda. Way to go Esna!
Akita came to live at Tylord in the mid 80's from Colorado State University. They deemed her unbreedable but after arriving here at the farm, she was able to conceive 5 foals. We sold three of them as youngsters for a total of $45,000. After that her owner declared that Akita would live out the rest of her life here on the farm. We have two daughters from Akita still on the farm. Amberlite owned by us and Antoinette retained by her owner. Two Grand Old Ladies of the breed.

Good news for Elbiskus!
Following the devastating fire in 2005 that took the lives of all of our stallions, Pat Rollins of Skydance Farm donated all of her stallion Elbiskus's frozen semen to us. Elbiskus is by the legendary foundation stallion Ibiskus. He had a very successful Grand Prix Dressage career under Gunnar and Birgit Ostergaard. In 1987 he placed 16th in the USDF Horse of the Year Awards and then again in 1989 he was the Reserve Champion in the USDF All Breed Awards. Our stallion Unkenruf the same year was the Champion. We have two beautiful two year old fillies on the farm by Elbiskus. One that we are keeping for a future broodmare and one we sold the day she was born. In 2010 we are expecting three more of these wonderful foals out of the following mares:
Annabelle by Laiken out of Amberlite by Unkenruf
Lucia by Enrico Caruso, full sister to our stallion "Lord Luciano", out of Lily of the Valley by Unkenruf
At 22, Lily of the Valley by Unkenruf out of Litchen by Tannenberg is also in-foal!
These foals will be carrying the top performance blood from both Unkenruf and Elbiskus! Stayed tune in 2010 for their arrival.

USET Foundation Awards Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy to Laura Noyes
Tuesday, 03 February 2009 09:38
The United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation is pleased to announce that Laura Noyes, 21, of Delaware, Ohio, has been awarded the Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy. The prestigious annual award recognizes a Junior/Young Rider who exemplifies the USET Foundation’s ideals of sportsmanship and horsemanship. Noyes was presented with the trophy in Wellington, Florida, on January 30 at the USET Foundation Cocktail Reception.
Noyes is the 27th recipient of the Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy. Recounting her reaction when she learned she had been selected, Noyes beamed, “I was quite shocked when I got the phone call from Bonnie Jenkins at USET Foundation. This has been such an incredible year for us and I thought it was over! I’m so honored to be presented with this award. It is definitely one of the greatest successes of my career thus far.”
Noyes has been partnered with her own Syncro, a 14-year-old Trakehner gelding, by Enrico Caruso out of Sonset, for nearly six years and they have risen up through the dressage ranks from First Level to the international levels for Young Riders. The duo has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments along the way. The year 2008 was Noyes’s final year in the Young Rider division and was full of highlights for her and Syncro. They earned the Reserve National Championship at the Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Dressage Festival of Champions in California; won the Individual Gold Medal and Team Silver Medal at the FEI North American Young Rider Championships (NAYRC) in Colorado; and, as the number-one ranked combination in the Young Riders standings, they represented the U.S. at the FEI World Cup™ Dressage Final for Young Riders in Frankfurt, Germany.
In addition to her Individual Gold, which she won with an impressive score of 74.75%, and Team Silver at NAYRC, Noyes also earned the highest combined score from the Team, Individual, and Freestyle competitions. For that accomplishment, the United States Dressage Federation awarded Noyes the Fiona Baan “Pursuit of Excellence” Memorial Trophy. Topping off the final NAYRC of her career, Noyes was also presented with the “Dressage Style” award, which the judges bestow to the rider who displays style throughout the competition - both mounted and in overall manners and demeanor.
As the recipient of the USET Foundation’s Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy, Noyes was honored for her sportsmanship and horsemanship, and she described the significance of those aspects of her career in detail. “Sportsmanship means a lot of things to me,” Noyes explained. “Foremost, it’s always doing what’s best for your horse, even if it’s not best for your competitive career. If you’re worried about the footing or worried that your horse doesn’t seem 100%, it is your responsibility to make that decision to withdraw from competition, no matter the stakes - if it’s a championship or just a schooling show. Some people would describe this as a difficult situation, but to me it seems so clear that it should be one of the easiest decisions.
“Secondly, sportsmanship is being supportive of your competitors if they’ve had a tough ride and sincerely happy for them when they do well. It’s so much fun to celebrate the successes with friends and so much easier to deal with the downs if you have the support of your friends and competitors.
“Lastly, always trying to be positive is a big component of sportsmanship. It’s very easy to get down on yourself and say, ‘if I had only done this instead or done that instead’. But none of us can travel back in time, so the only thing you can do is embrace your mistakes, learn from them, and look forward. This is something I’ve tried to always do - understand what I did wrong and try not to do it wrong the next time!”
The Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy award also honors horsemanship, and Noyes described what the horsemanship aspect of her career means to her, both in and out of the show ring. “Horsemanship is very simple in my mind. It means knowing every inch of your horse,” Noyes stated. “I do everything with Syncro and have for six years. I know every expression of his, how every inch of each leg should look, the difference between when he wants his withers scratched or his rump scratched, and so on. It is so important to know everything you possibly can about your horse. Because we ask so much of our horses, we have a huge responsibility to make them as happy and comfortable as we possibly can. Not only do we have a responsibility to know our horses, but then to also know what to do when they are acting a certain way. I have been lucky that I have had great resources around me in George Williams and Dr. Mitchell and many other professionals that I have met over the years.”
Noyes added with a smile, “These are the people that you need to be really obnoxious to and hang around them and ask them a million questions, because that is the only way you will learn anything!”
A native of Falmouth, Maine, Noyes has resided in Ohio since 2006. She is a junior at Ohio Wesleyan University majoring in Zoology. Noyes started training with George Williams in Florida in 2005, and now, in addition to her studies, has a job riding horses for Williams at Gypsy Woods Farm in Ohio, owned by Chuck and Joann Smith.
Noyes acknowledged that it is a challenge for her to juggle school, training, competing, and working. “Yes, its not easy,” she affirmed. “There are some days when I say to myself, ‘what the heck are you thinking? There aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done that you have to get done!’ But it’s all worth it. I love school, although I’ll feel relieved when I graduate and am able to really focus on riding and working.”
Noyes’s accomplishments in 2008, are impressive, but even more so considering it was a ‘comeback’ year for Syncro. Noyes recounted that she and Syncro qualified for the 2006 Young Rider World Cup, but had to withdraw when the gelding had an inflammation in his hoof; then he tore a ligament, relegating Noyes to a year of icing and hand-walking. In 2008, Noyes took a semester off from college to bring Syncro back to the show ring in Florida and had a “wild” horse on her hands in the beginning of the season, but clearly, she worked through it.
The presentation of the USET Foundation’s Lionel Guerrand-Hermès Trophy was a gratifying finale to a banner year and an outstanding Young Rider career. Noyes’s devotion to her horse was evident in her summation of 2008. “I never expected the sort of success that we have had this year,” Noyes said. “I knew Syncro could do it because he’s such a talented horse, although I never thought that he could do it with me in the driver’s seat! What really makes all of our success so sweet is that we have done everything together, from First Level on up. This is also part of how we know each other so well. We definitely have a pretty unique partnership and I know I’d be lucky to form a partnership with another horse that’s even half as special as the one Syncro and I share.”
