Stevens Creek Farm

About

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

members.

 

Teddie competed extensively in hunter, jumper,  and eventing all through primary school to university. At 18 Teddie won the

Ontario Intermediate 3 Day Championships on her 15 hand homebred Soysambu mare, Ladybug. At 22 Teddie coached the Quebec

Young Rider Team to a singular Gold Medal at the North American Young Rider Championships CCI***. 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.

 

Teddie's daughter Moira now works full time coaching with Teddie while pursuing an education at Carleton University.
