Rosewood Center | [4/25] Even More Pintobeans

  • PR Committee

    Welcome to Rosewood

    Originally established in the 1970's, Rosewood Center was a formidable opponent in the competition world. However, with all success stories, there is an inevitable downfall. Rosewood has changed hands several times before reaching its current state, but it has never changed in its mission. Rosewood promises top quality horses who are handled from birth and eager to please, and trained to reach perfection in the show ring.

    High Quality Horses

    Rosewood's horses begin training as early as possible. They are handled from birth, and paired up with a trainer specially chosen to suit their needs. After initial training, horses spend time with all of our riders in the selected discipline in order to find their best match. This ensures the best possible show teams and the greatest chances for success. Our horse and rider teams form a special, lifelong bond which can be seen both in and out of the show ring.

    Friendly Staff

    One of the most important characteristics we look for when hiring new staff is charisma. Rosewood strives to be a welcoming business. While raising horses is not always fun and games, we try to make it seem that way. The staff is one big family, and we as a whole put friendship over competition. If you see one of our staff members during visiting hours, don't be afraid to say hello! <-

    Affordable Prices

    We strive for affordability in all offered services. Prices are as low as we are comfortable charging, and other payment options are often available for those who cannot afford our services. We are always happy to work something out with potential clients, so do not be afraid to contact us if you feel the need.


    Rosewood Center was originally established in the 1970’s under founders Jack and Mary Rosewood. They had a dream of breeding and competing top quality sport horses, and for a time they were very successful. Rosewood was a small facility in its early days, run only by the Rosewoods and a small staff. Twenty years later, they were having a hard time keeping up with the competition. Jack was injured in a riding accident and unable to walk, and Mary became ill shortly after. Money became a problem, and even after selling most of their horses and all but one barn of the facility, they were unable to keep their land. When Mary died a year later, Jack was left completely unable to care for himself or his remaining horses. The remaining facilities were purchased in 2000 by a competitor, Lydia Burdine, who also eventually bought the rest of the land from previous buyers. Her family was considered the best of the best before suffering losses of their own. Lydia’s father died, and her mother needs around the clock care. While Lydia still owns and pays for the facility, her daughter, Andrea Burdine, has been appointed general manager of Rosewood Center, and a dream she had chased for 15 years became a reality.

    Rosewood Center has a wide variety of staff members trained in all disciplines. We put attitude and willingness to work above skill when hiring new staff, and leave it to our trainers to work with both horse and rider to craft the perfect team. We are a very team-oriented facility and can say without a doubt that this philosophy only makes us stronger. We are always looking to hire more staff for our rapidly growing facility. For those interested, please contact manager Andrea at and she will get back to you shortly!

    Rosewood Center - Sport Horse Division

    Rosewood's Sport Horse Division is our main focus, containing warmblood and thoroughbred horses from many facilities around the community. We own dozens of these fine horses who compete in the three major disciplines on Equus: Eventing, Dressage, and Show Jumping. While horses in our other divisions may compete alongside these horses, it is these sport horses that get the biggest focus. Color and bloodlines come together to create flashy horses who are successful in the ring and just as willing to work as our lovely staff. The vast majority of our throughbreds and warmbloods can be found in this section of our organization.

    Rosewood Center - TREC/Endurance Division

    Affectionately known as the "Adventure Squad," this team of colorful horses have been selected because they don't have an off switch. While we have a growing selection of gorgeous Pintabians dominating this division, we do not focus on a single breed here. Many of the horses that compete in TREC or Endurance with us are horses who we pick up who do not necessarily do well enough in our other disciplines to be considered for those teams. These horses are weirdos, but we love them just the same.

    Rosewood Center - Hunter Division

    A rather new addition to Rosewood, our Hunter division is composed of mostly stock horses competing in the three hunter disciplines. Eventually we will add to this by breeding grade horses to be competed in hunters, as the lovely color of these horses is something we would like to pass on to other hunters around Equus.

    Rosewood's Bellona & Anna Corazon

    Introductory Level, Snowbird Dressage Series
    After a handful of shows for the young mare, Bella seemed to finally be getting the hang of this Dressage thing. She still took misteps, still acted like a young filly and paid the price for it. Despite the much calmer atmosphere surrounding the Introductory Level, where most of the spectators were there to represent their stable or just wait for a higher level to begin, the four-year-old displayed one of the most agitating traits of her father's. Everything was too loud, too distracting, and she had the worst time focusing. Anna, being relatively inexperienced herself, could be caught stealing glances toward her trainer every so often, who despite knowing their chance at a high placing was gone after seeing the performances from other horses in the class, just smiled encouragingly as he worked on formulating a new training plan for home.
    The pair were the last horses from Rosewood competing at the level. Certainly not the worst performance so far, not after one of the other youngsters threw his rider shortly after the start of his round, but definitely not the best either. Anna sighed, sat up a bit straighter, and the pair began a free walk down a long side of the arena. Bella's ears pricked forward, head tossing ever so slightly in protest as Anna tried keeping the mare walking in a relatively straight line. A score of 48 awaited them when the round ended, giving them sixth place in their class and marking Bella's first placing.
    Back at the showground's barn during the Training level, Anna snuck a treat between the stall bars, laughing when the mare knocked it out of her hand in her excitement.
    "Don't worry, at least you don't have much to live up to," she cooed, putting her helmet back on as she prepared to go find the next horse she would be riding. "Your parents both have four left hooves."
    A screeching whinny from the ever-so-friendly Bella as another horse and rider combo passed by was her only answer.

  • Love the story and image! You've inspired me to maybe actually get in an entry for the show, we'll see though :upside_down:

  • Great story & pic!

    Rosewood's Stormfront

    Training Level, Snowbird Dressage Series, after the performance
    "That's kind of pathetic," Tegan laughed as she passed by the stall, peeking in at the gold-coated mare.
    Annaleigh stood at the stall door, arms crossed as she leaned into the frame and looked at the napping Stormy. Their round had finished no less than thirty minutes ago. It hadn't been a particularly impressive ride, but for the inexperienced mare it was obviously tiring. The barn was fairly empty as it was still early in the level, and besides the occasional nervous stomp or whinny of some bored neighboring horses, it was quiet. Much quieter than an average day back home.
    "She's sleepy," Anne answered defensively. "Caden had us working early this morning because he wanted us to have a last minute lesson."
    "Is he always like that?"
    "Don't get me started. He's just going easy on you because you're new. Give it a month or two and he'll be pulling you out to the barn before the sun's up and throwing you on one of Amira's horses."
    The girls laughed, and Anne stepped into the stall to start unbraiding Stormy's mane, talking softly to her as she went. The mare's ears twitched and swiveled as she listened and stood obediently until her heavy mane was free to go absolutely everywhere.
    "Let me grab her some food and then I want to go find Andrea. I saw a really cute colt for sale and want to see what she says," Anne said, giving the mare a pat on the neck before leaving the stall. Tegan shut the door behind her, shaking her head.
    "She says no more Dressage horses. We'll have a new set of foals before the year is over for you to obsess over."
    "We'll see. If all else fails I'll see about training him for something else. It was a pretty Gypsy colt, I know Andrea has a weakness."

  • Awww those legs are so fluffy :yellow_heart:

    DPPR Royal Conqueror

    Rosewood has had over a dozen new arrivals over the holidays. Today I'd like to introduce DPPR Royal Conqueror, a smoky cream overo Thoroughbred stallion by GE Royally Masochistic out of Rosewood's Conquest. This colorful boy is a breeding adding to our large herd from @Luke-Teth. He is pasture buddies with our boy DPPR A Regal Soldier, who is his uncle, and has also met another of his uncles, Rosewood's Royal Commander, who he does not get along with as well. Conqueror has immediately made a connection with our Show Jumping trainer, Lauren, who has been assigned as his rider. I caught the two going out for a ride this evening. Lauren isn't much of a fan of pictures so it was a miracle I managed to get this shot, but she wanted to show off what a good boy Conqueror is, despite looking like he's ready to kill he stands nice and still on command. We wish the pair all the best as they begin showing hopefully by next month.

  • What a cutie!

    Foaling season has begun at Rosewood! These two babies come at a perfect time, as we are currently in the process of planning a promotion auction for the lovely Gypsy Vanner. First we have Rosewood's Crooked Gold, by MHS Crooked Miser out of LIB Lioness' Gold, a lovely chestnut tobiano splash filly. We are going to have a hard time parting with her as the staff have absolutely fallen in love with this cutie. Next up is Rosewood's Tipping the Miser, again by MHS Crooked Miser and out of Tiptop Nipnop, a bay tobiano colt. He's a spunky little thing and a huge mama's boy, never straying far from his dam while Gold is much more willing to explore and stress out her mom. These two will be available for sale through auction soon!
