Sleeping Fox Farm, LLC also has a small string of competition horses that both Gary and Angie personally lesson and compete with primarily in the sport of three-day eventing. They feel that it’s important for both of them to stay current in their own riding abilities to be able to re-train and bring along their rescues to the best of their ability. What is eventing?

These horses are not for adoption but they still wanted you to meet them!
Blue Cliff: Blue Cliff, aka “Bird,” is a 17-year-old Canadian OTTB grey gelding, and currently the main competition horse for Angie. Angie has competed Bird through the Training-level of eventing, and seeks to move-up to Preliminary by next year. Bird is owned by SFF trainer Stephanie Sills.
Crypto Bella: Crypto Bella, aka “Buddy,” is a 15-year-old OTTB gelding, and is currently the main competition horse for Gary. Buddy has competed through the CCI2* level. Gary is currently enjoying competing Buddy at the Beginner Novice/Novice levels with a goal to move-up in the near future.
Alordoara: Alordoara, aka “Ali,” is a 9-year-old RPSI Warmblood mare who is currently in a lower-level work program in dressage and provides some lessons to people. Ali was purchased in 2008 as Gary’s primary competition horse, but due to her physical limitations she is unable to compete in eventing.
Lyric: Lyric, aka “Donkey,” is a Sleeping Fox Farm homebred. He is a 9-year-old Warmblood gelding and a half brother to our current stallion, Lion. Donkey was Angie’s main competition horse until 2012 when he suffered an acute case of gas colic and needed colic surgery. He is now in semi-retirement until further evaluation of his health status can be determined. Until then he is enjoying a much deserved break
Lion: Sleeping Fox Farm is proud to announce that our stallion Lion is in training with, and being campaigned by Daniel Clasing. This is their second season together and Lion is progressing very nicely under Daniel’s care. Dan and Lion are currently at Preliminary/ Training-level with expectations of reaching a full Preliminary competition late this season.
One of our sanctuary horses who needs a high level of care has become part of our personal group of horses, but we wanted to share her story with you as well.
Rouge: 2007 chestnut Warmblood RPSI mare. She has a breathing disorder and is unable to safely regulate her temperature. Her airway is also at risk of closure on high levels of stress (bilateral pharyngeal collapse). Due to this condition; she is unable to be ridden and will happily live out her days as a long-term resident.
