- Celebrating 38 Years of Breeding & Training Outstanding Warmbloods -
||Founded in 1972, our goal has always been the production of quality warmbloods to have as a friend and competition horse. Although the following article was written in 1992, our philosophy remains the same. Our mare herd has been fine tuned for the best riding qualities and our older stallions are all proven at the FEI levels of dressage. When we breed to an outside stallion, we chose those with great riding qualities, proven in competition. We truly enjoy the task of fitting horse to rider.|

Warmblood Breeding Philosophy
The proof of a breeding program must always come through the results of competition and here we have had great success. Our specialty is dressage and a large number of our sales horses compete in this field earning an incredible number of USDF Horse of the Year and Breed awards.
We've added eventing back into our competition schedule with great success. As the years have progressed, a substantial number of our Trakehner and Swedish homebreds have entered the hunter field, earning many championships.Although we breed with FEI gaits and quality in mind, our primary goal is to place our horses in loving homes where both horse and rider will progress to their own level at a comfortable speed. Quite frankly, not all FEI horses are the happiest, while a well loved first level horse not ever living up to his potential can be the most rewarding and rewarded of horses. The enjoyment and accord between horse and rider can be seen and appreciated at any level of competition.
We consider this our breeding reward.
