There is little in life as impactful and memorable as a good horse. You know the kind: a horse that meets you every time you work with them, that has the athleticism and heart to accomplish all you aim for, a horse that strives to work with you and for you. Losing such a horse leaves a hole like no other, and after having such a horse average is no longer adequate. As a family, that is the kind of horse we want to own and the kind we aim to raise! We are breeding horses that stay the course to become Champions and Partners.
When you want to build something that lasts you start with a solid foundation. We began building our program by seeking out great broodmares - own daughters with proven bloodlines top to bottom - that had the conformation and dispositions to live up to their pedigrees. Each of our mares is truly special and has displayed the qualities that meet our high expectations. We know not everyone is looking for the same traits in their horse, so we have a unique diversity in our broodmare band to fit a variety of goals. Each mare is descended from champions and has the genetics and background to increase the likelihood of producing a champion herself.
We are very selective with our breedings and scrutinize every detail. We not only consider genetics, disposition, conformation, and performance records, but we also consider eligibility and future potential. We want to see our horses succeed, and strive to give you (and them) every opportunity to rise to the top. You can be assured that any baby you acquire from us has the potential to also be an asset to your breeding program should you decide to graduate your equine partner from the arena to the breeding barn.
We are hands on with our foals immediately after birth and have a specific program we follow to make sure each one is prepared to succeed. Every foal is given one on one attention until they have a solid groundwork foundation and are a well-mannered baby. They receive the best we can offer in terms of nutrition and daily care to get them off to a good start. Every time you handle a horse, especially a foal, you are training them and we always keep that in mind!
From the beginning we have asked the Lord for wisdom and discernment. It is a joy for Levi and I with our family to prayerfully go through each step with our horses; considering the crosses for our mares, waiting with excited anticipation for foals to arrive, working hands-on with each foal bringing them carefully through the yearling year and preparing them for that first 2 year old ride, watching as they develop into the incredible horses we have hoped and planned for, and beaming with pride as they become the “great horse” someone has always dreamed of!
