Breeding Mares

Over the past few years we have been slowly building up a herd of high quality brood mares, which we believe will produce top class sport horses in the years to come. These mares have been selected throughout Europe on the strength of their own performances, that of their siblings, and even more importantly, the performances of their own progeny. In addition to these criteria, we have chosen mares with good conformation, and soundness of limb and wind. As our herd develops we have begun breeding one or two foals from some of our best three year old fillies. In this way we can continue with their sporting careers once the foals have been reared and we are free to sell the mare without losing their valuable genetics.

In selecting stallions for our mares we are careful to choose modern type sport horses with strong performance genetics. We aim to breed horses that will be first and foremost athletic, rideable and willing animals, regardless of which discipline they will go on to compete in. For 2017 we are expecting foals from Aganix de Seigneur, 2x Starpower TN, Malibu TN, Capri van Overis, Master Blue, Firkov de Rouet, Casallco, and Air Jordan Alpha Z

 

Viancara VDL (2002) – Acobat II x Nimmerdor
