Special achivements: Breeder and owner of FEI World Cup and Swedish Olympic Games 2016 prospect Deja ridden by Patrik Kittel. Breeder of Diva now sold to the Oatley family in Australia, to be ridden by Lyndal Oatley in Europe. Deja and Diva both respectively won Swedish Young Horse Championships for 4-year old dressage horses 2012 and 2009. Both Diva and Deja have represented Sweden at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horse.
On the southern most tip of Sweden is Smygehamn. This is where the fairytale of a Marie Haward’s breeding starts in 1997. Marie comes across a beautiful mare that due to an accident cannot perform in the sport anymore: Amida 23963 (by SWB Amiral). Amida is an SWB elite mare that since then has produced 6 off springs – most importantly the mare Donellie (by DWB Don Schufro) who is the mare of Deja and Grand Mare of Diva. Donellie herself a successful participant of the Swedish Young Horses Dressage Championships in 2006 and 2007 with top 3 placings in the 5 and 6 YO classes.
Marie’s philosophy is to produce horses from quality instead of quantity – and thus Marie is presently only breeding from her stem-mares Amida and Donellie, resulting in breeding from mares that are in 4 successive generations. The objective is to produce horses with outstanding sport performance at the same time as they have to be happy athletes. In Marie’s point of view this is includes breeding with focus on the quality of gaits and outstanding rideability.
In order to be able to focus on the small scale breeding Marie is also running a Café and Lifestyle Boutique at her farm: Café Haward&Busck. A unique lifestyle concept taking clever uses of Marie’s interior decoration competencies, being a consultant for Ikea since many years – and the unique location at the southern most tip of Sweden.
We encourage you to visit the Café at the Smygehamn farm; beautiful young horses, nice coffee and inspiring shopping! The Café is open on weekends in Fall and Spring – everyday during Summer.
