Stevens Creek Farm
The Laframboise-de Ste.Croix Family (L to R): Son Austin de Ste.Croix, Daughter Moira de Ste.Croix, Andy de Ste.Croix, Teddie Laframboise
Jane Estelle Laframboise (aka. Teddie) was born July 26, 1958, the fourth child of eight of the
Laframboise eventing family. Teddie is a 5th generation horsewoman. Her great great
grandfather imported horses from Ireland for hunting and racing in the early 1900's. Teddie
grew up on a 60 horse breeding and boarding stable in Luskville, Quebec next to the Gatineau
Park. The farm was owned and run by her nurse mother, Mary Anne Laframboise, and her
surgeon father, Dr. Guy Laframboise. A sophisticated medical approach characterizes the
horse care of all of the Laframboise sisters working in horses. Older sister Lorraine
Laframboise runs a training business in Quebec and younger sister Momo Laframboise runs
a boarding and training business in Orangeville. Both sisters are ex-national eventing team
Teddie competed extensively in hunter, jumper, and eventing all through primary school to university. At 18 Teddie won theOntario Intermediate 3 Day Championships on her 15 hand homebred Soysambu mare, Ladybug. At 22 years old Teddie coached the Quebec Young Rider Team to a one time team gold medal and an individual silver medal at the North American Young Rider Championships CCI*** in Red Deer, Alberta. Teddie continued to coach part time while pursuing a baccalaureate in business and education at the University of Ottawa and Toronto respectively.
In 1988 after working in the financial industry with Merrill Lynch Canada Teddie started full time as a rider and coach at the
Laframboise family farm in Luskville competing and coaching students in the hunter/jumper and eventing disciplines. In 1994
Teddie and Andy moved the business from the Laframboise home farm to Stevens Creek Farm in Kars. Teddie competed
successfully up to the CCI*** level and 1.40m jumper level, and was listed on the Canadian Team Talent Squad in 1993 before
retiring from competition to dedicate herself to her family and to developing the business. In their first year at Stevens Creek their
son Austin was born and soon after came Moira. During this hectic time of raising a family the business grew from two stalls in the
garage to a fully operational 30 horse boarding and training centre.
Moira works full time in the summers coaching and managing with Teddie while pursuing a liberal arts education at Carleton University.
