“A Joyful Partnership”

In early 1999, I had foaled out my first foal, out of a beloved mare and by the Hanoverian stallion Donavan. By early 2000 we had become the owners of the stallion and won a lengthy battle to get him home with all of his rightful papers. We needed an excellent rider, nearby in WI, someone with time and interest to revive the stallion’s career and go on to finish his Grand Prix. We had to trust her.

Our trusted veterinarian recommended JJ Tate, then a 21-year-old up and coming young rider. Donavan was sent to her, on trial, and after a week or two, we went to see how this was working out.

Perfect! She became Donavan’s lady.

From that moment on, JJ Tate became, along with Donavan, our good luck charm. JJ was professional, even as a young rider, and showed great wisdom, and grasp of the ideals of classical dressage. She wanted what was best for the horse first and foremost. Exactly our goal for Donavan. To this day, She runs her barn with wisdom and efficiency and chooses the best staff for her Team Tate. She was excited and enthusiastic, and I have come to see after 13 years of this partnership, she is that way about every horse! For 5 years she trained and rode Donavan, in competition, exhibitions and for clinics.. and their success together is well known. We have never thought to choose anyone else for our youngsters.

Throughout those years, as we evolved as sport horse, warmblood breeders, JJ matured in her stature, enhanced the scope of her skill, enlarged her industry influence and grew her reputation! Our horses, Duesenjaeger, Davy Crockett, Dragee, Atlanta, EM Bevolina, D’Aktion, Bianna, EM Royal Princess OBX, and several others we bred and sold came to her for training. They have all thrived due to her far-reaching skill, ever-growing knowledge and talent,(gleaned from her association with other international riders), her patience and devotion to the horse and her sport.

We feel so fortunate to have moved from WI to Maryland at the same time as our “Tall Daughter “. We were Riverland Farm and are now in Maryland (Kent Island Sporthorses) and have enjoyed this love of the horse and Dressage and benefited greatly from this relationship of communication, trust, and excitement about the industry. Over the last 5 years, we have been fortunate enough and thrilled to be able to help import and sponsor for JJ, Rosall,( Rosario/Akzent II) an Oldenburg FEI contender.


Marty and I are proud to say, upon our recommendation some of our loyal clients are now bringing their youngsters from our stallions and our program to JJ. She never disappoints.

We highly, without reservation, recommend JJ Tate and Team Tate for your horses' dressage career needs from start, to tune up, to competition, to sale!

I am so pleased to be able to help JJ in any way I can to achieve her goals!
