Janna won national acclaim in the saddleseat equitation division. In 1983, she rode her American Saddlebred, Warlock, to two world championships and won the National Finals in Madison Janna Goldman and MajesticSquare Gardens. In 1992, she returned to the show ring to be named the U.P.H.A. Adult Saddleseat Equitation World Champion. In 1993, she was selected to represent the United States on the World Cup Team. Currently, Janna shows the 18-year old Friesian gelding, Black Sterling, in Open Western Pleasure classes, and 13 yr old Majestic and 11 yr old Ate in various divisions, including huntseat, dressage, and saddleseat classes, throughout the west coast. In 2009, Janna was presented the President’s Trophy Award from FHANA for achieving the highest score in North America and was selected as the person who best demonstrates the versatility of the Friesian horse. In 2010, she won an unprecedented nine National and World Championships, all unanimously under 3 different Judges, at the IFSHA Friesian Grand National Horse Show in Del Mar

Janna purchased this villa in 2012

We import only Friesians who show promise in their suitability for show, AND for trail/pleasure riding. Consider the Friesian as your next dressage or trail mount. A properly trained Friesian will excite you with its skill and suitability for dressage, show, pleasure riding, and in harness. And as a bonus you will find that it is simply a wonderful family horse.

While we are the largest importers of friesian horses in north america---- we stumbles upon an AMAZING home with spectacular VIEWS to DIE for, and we LOVE sharing them with our wine country guests!!!

IDEAL Location for my 50th Birthday Celebration.

  • Review Submitted: 25-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
I recently stayed at the Black Sterling Villa with 11 of my friends for a 50th birthday celebration. We were incredibly pleased and impressed with the house and the property! The Villa sits up on the hill overlooking acres of beautiful winery and rolling green hills. The house has a spectacular wrap around deck that allows for amazing access to this beautiful scenery, with a propane grill, jacuzzi, and plenty of outdoor seating. It sits on the hill by itself which makes it feel like you are at a retreat all to yourself. Inside, the house is clean and updated with lovely and Mediterranean decor. The kitchen was very functional with updated appliances, convection oven and plenty of dishes, bowls, silverware, serving pieces, etc. The rooms were a comfortable size and each had its own personality. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The kitchen opens up to the dining table and great room with huge stone fireplace, all which overlook the carneros valley. We all took riding lessons on the imported friesian horses kept on the adjoining property. In addition to the house and grounds being so wonderful, we were incredibly pleased with the staff that manages the property. There is a groundskeeper on the property daily, and the owner was quick to return calls and responsive to all our requests. Janna, who we had been in contact when booking the place, was very responsive and gave us the name and number of a personal chef that came in the home and cooked several special meals for our group. We felt that everyone really cared that we enjoyed our stay and wanted to ensure we had a positive experience. We definitely recommend Black Sterling Villa for a special occasion or getaway! We are already trying to figure out whose birthday is next, so we have an excuse to return!!!

What a wonderful time we had staying at the Black Sterling Villa. The spacious home was the perfect setting for our get together. The place is beautifully decorated and was in immaculate. Dinner was enjoyed every evening on the deck overlooking the beautiful Sonoma Wine Country. After a day of activities the pool and hot tub were refreshing and relaxing. The beds were comfy and the kitchen well appointed. Thank you to the owner, our reunion was perfect.
