Headwaters Horse Country Excellence Award Winner
Sue Grange wasn’t born a country girl, but at the age of 12 she tagged along with a friend to her riding lessons and was immediately hooked on horses. Showing on a major scale by 16, Sue traveled the continent as a competitive jumper for nearly two decades and in the mid-1970s purchased a 100-acre lot in Cheltenham on which to build her training farm.
In 2005, Sue teamed up with her mother, Mrs. Campbell and purchased three Standardbred mares, (“Belovedangel”, “Please Me Please” and “KiKiKatie”) with the intention of breeding them to RockNRoll Hanover, the 2005 Pacer of the Year and Horse of the Year in the U.S.A. and later a Race Horse Hall Of Fame inductee. Sue also had many victories with Well Said, the 3yr old North American Pacer of the Year in 2009, he won the Little Brown Jug and the Meadowlands Pace and North American Cup in 2009.
Lothlorien standardbred stallions, Rockin Image by RockNRoll Hanover out of KiKiKatie and Tellitilikeitis by Well Said out of KiKiKatie are both currently standing at stud at Victory Hill Farm. Lothlorien standardbred stallion, Rockin Amadeus by RockNRoll Hanover out of KiKiKatie is currently standing at stud at Cool Wind Farm.
Lothlorien’s original 100 acres have now increased to over 500 acres, giving Sue plenty of room to roam with her husband John, their four children and a handful of dogs. Today Lothlorien is a very busy place between the extensive breeding program with both Standardbreds and show jumpers, the many young horses and the horses that are currently racing or showing.
