She focused her breeding efforts on horses with outstanding pedigrees that could product foals with unique colours including palomino and buckskin. Her first dilute foal was a palomino Warmblood colt, Bali, who was born in 2006 out of her foundation mare, Jamaica.
In 2017, Christina began breeding Frenchton (French Bulldog x Boston Terrier) puppies and currently breeds Pomsky dogs (Pomeranian x Siberian Husky).
Christina spearheaded the entire construction and development of an Olympic caliber horse boarding and training facility from vacant land that was completed in November 2011. The facilities were named Keurwood Equestrian Inc. From inception until Fall 2021, Christina exclusively managed the boarding and training facility.
