With the break in the 2020 competition schedule, WT Leapfrog has returned to Wild Turkey Farm to be offered fresh cooled for the foreseeable future.


Prior to the pause caused by the pandemic, 9-year-old WT Leapfrog’s year was off to a strong start: placing 5th in the $200,000 Grand Prix at the Desert International Horse Park and jumping clear with just a time fault in a subsequent $100,000 Grand Prix.

Mandy Porter has piloted and developed the stallion (LioCalyon x Carthago Z) since his 4-year-old year.

“I did a lot of in-hand work on the ground with him when he first came to me,” said Porter. “It really helped to develop our bond and to pair up together. He was very playful as a young horse, but he had so much power that he had to learn how to harness that over the years.”

Frog’s good temperament and his desire to please are a couple traits that will be assets to his future foals, according to Porter.

“He truly loves people,” Porter said. “He wants to be friends with everybody.”

In addition to his excellent mind, Frog’s jumping technique, balance, and work ethic are additional characteristics that make Frog a strong stallion choice for all three rings.

To celebrate WT Leapfrog being home, we are offering a limited-time stud fee of $1400 for fresh, cooled!
