    Default American Bred?

    I have purchased and imported several young horses from Germany and Ireland. Mostly Ireland now, through Richard Sheane. Recently, I had someone come to me with an interest in investing in young, unbacked, American bred jumpers... And I had no idea where to start! I would be able to find a decent horse that was started in America but I have very little knowledge of who breeds young sporthorses, similar to the quality I have been purchasing abroad. Is anyone able to enlighten me?

    Thanks!

    Unbacked 3YO?

    Some of the breeders who are active on this forum might have some, but I sense they mostly sell their young stock before that.

    If your are looking for foals, maybe yearlings, there are many breeders active here that would probably appreciate the inquiry.

    Newcastle, the leading Saugerties circuit 6yo jumper this year under Todd Minikus, is (Orame x Contender), registered AHHA.

    I bred and started him and took him to his first shows.

    Our horses also led every age group (2, 3, & 4yo) through the Young Horse Show series in freejumping.

    We have plenty more, this age and younger...

    We have had 2 First Premium Jumper bred KWPN foals the last 2 years but both are now sold. But we have definitely changed our breeding focus from mainly dressage to about half jumper breds now. There are many breeders like me out there if you do a search for bloodlines etc...it might help. Best wishes in your search.

    I see a lot of temptation...er...quality here in North America. A good place to start is to google a stallion you fancy and narrow the search by date or go to a website for a particular verband (belgian warmblood= bwp-na) to see the links to the farms.

    I also sent you a private message. good luck and great idea.

    Our slogan at Hyperion is "Europe's Finest, Made in America". We are focused on breeding the same quality that the Europens offer. We have some exceptional options from our 2011 and 2012 crops still available if your looking for horses bred with a focus for the jumping sport.

    We also offer a lot of stallion choices for breeding if that is of interest as well.

    So wonderful to hear you are focusing on horses bred here in NA when looking to buy! There are many breeders out there like us who are working diligently at producing top horses for sport. If we don't have what interests you then I can suggest many others for you to take a look at. PM for more info and of course please visit our website to have a look at what's available from our program.

    Cheers!

    If you are open to Canada, then I would look at www.fermebeaulieufarm.com. Ferme Beaulieu Farm has many youngsters to choose from, from all the best European jumper bloodlines. Proven marelines, 5 generations, working on 6 in 2013. I can't say I know another farm with 5 generations of breeding stock still alive and breeding in NA.

    We also have Made in America prospects. Mare lines have produced regional, national, and international competition horses. We have used the best European bloodlines infused with TB blood. Have a look at our website.

    Thank you for the kind shout-out, JWB!

    We focus on breeding top notch jumpers for the big ring from imported mares with top-producing bloodlines from Europe- Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, France. We choose stallions with a view towards proven progeny in competition, breed approvals, rideability and, yes, temperament - a quality less highlighted in Europe. If there is a sire that a client is particularly keen on having offspring from and he is a good match in terms of pedigree, conformation and temperament with one of our mares, we can do a custom foal contract. Typically, our foals sell young- frequently before birth! However, we are re-tooling our operation to allow us to retain more of the young stock longer because so many have asked us for precisely what you are requesting- unstarted three year olds and four year olds prospects.

    We also breed hunters for the American market, essentially using two Alla'Czar mares to which we are adding others.

    It is heartening to read the post of the OP which goes to the core of what we so frequently discuss here on this forum---how to encourage buyers to "look American" before going abroad. We KNOW that we and many others have stock on a par, if not, indeed, exceeding the quality of the stock in Europe.....all stemming from the same bloodlines, but bred with a focus on the American client.

    There are several smaller breeding programs in the U.S. breeding young jumper prospects, but it can take some searching to find them. My program usually produces 3-5 foals/year, but most of them sell either in-utero or pre-weaning. However, we usually have at least 1 or 2 youngsters that we have held back to start under-saddle and I would guess that is the same for many of the smaller breeders here. It is a labor of love to put the time and money into top genetics when you are dealing with a small breeding program, but so far it has been worth it!

    Default Sport horses in Virginia

    I own the Holsteiner stallion, Concerto Grosso. My main broodmare is a Voltaire daughter who I bred to Cicera's Icewater producing three offspring. My daughter is now competing the oldest one at the Preliminary level and all her coaches say the horse can go to the top. I bred his two sisters to Concerto Grosso and am wowed by the cross. I have traveled overseas and don't believe the European have anything on us. Americans have always thought it more glamorous to buy in Europe and say they imported their horses.

    We have a program where we start our own babies that we have cared for since conception. We have four year olds to in-utero for sale.

    You may wish to speak to Sonja Lowenfish of the American Warmblood Registry for some guidance. She is very familiar with jumper lines from Europe and may be able to give u some insight for more top breeders in ther USA and Canada. She is originally from Germany ( many years ago) where her family has been involved in jumpers for several generations. I believe they bred Holsteiners and were heavily involved with the Holsteiner Association.

    We also breed young jumpers at Silver Creek Farms. Most of our jumper prospects sell to professionals before we have the opportunity to start them, so they are not here long. Some of our homebreds are below -

    Really? Two dislikes? Did I name a farm that someone doesn't like or did I leave you off the list?
