Our breeding program produces Hunter prospects with superb conformation and amateur temperaments, Jumper prospects with scope and bascule, Eventing prospects with beautiful Dressage movement and bold, sound, and willing minds all wrapped in Frame Overo, Dominant White, Overo, Roan, Cremello, Palomino, Buckskin, and Rabicano equine coat colors.
Our training program starts from before our foals are born, and the moment our babies are born, we incorporate learning opportunities into daily life. Our philosophy is that every interaction teaches our babies and helps them grow, so we strive for positive experiences and work towards cooperative, healthy, and happy human interactions making our babies well adjusted and solid prospects for our clients. We keep it fun and light, and our babies love school! We also set yearlings and 2 year olds up for saddle & bit-work and start them on free work and joining up with ground commands.
