    Default Looking for a Haflinger breeder/dressage prospect

    I'm looking for another nice, young Haflinger dressage prospect to bring along. Does anyone know of a reputable sport haflinger breeder (or know of a nice one for sale?)

    I recommend Twin Birch Farm in NY. Really nice, athletic Haflingers. Really nice, very honest people.

    Does it have to come from a breeder? I know of a rescue that has or can be on the lookout for what you need. PM me if you want to know, as I am not sure if it is OK to post on this thread.

    I know that Rancho Del Lago in Texas has a two-year old filly sired by their bay Andalusian stallion, Magico VIII out of their Haflinger mare for sale. She's a doll. Look on their sales page, her name is Valerosa. I think there is a video on Youtube of her also...look under Judy Henslee Youtube account...if you are interested.

    This is her video:

    Not sure where you're located...I second Tudor Oaks, but here some others that I personally would be shopping first, based on my choice in breeding and type

    I do know of some nice individuals for sale as well, how young are you looking for? You might also want to consider attending the AHR sale in May.

    Thanks everyone! I found a gem of a Haflinger gelding from a private seller. He is worth his weight in gold for his temperament alone...but he's also super gorgeous and well trained in dressage. http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h3...ps35540e31.jpg

    Well you can't say that and not post pics I feel as though there should be a thread dedicated to dressage ponies here on COTH

    Can you give me info on this sale? I'm just starting to look for a new horse, seriously considering a halfinger. I want something to just have fun on - trail ride, etc but also want to take lessons & do some low level showing. I'm in WA, but when I am ready to actually buy, I'm not opposed to traveling a bit for the perfect match.

    There's Ferme Grison in Quebec. They are reputable breeders with what seems to be a quality breeding program. I no nothing about Haflingers, but I have always found theirs to be well put together and decent movers. The breeder also have good breeding practices and management.

    Spike - my mare is by Ferme Grison's Alabama

    Cindy - every spring and fall the AHR hosts a registered breed sale. They mail a catalog and post one online a few weeks before the sale. There's usually a whole range of ages and training types. Not as many horses as there used to be, and prices aren't as high, but a nice and reputable sale all the same. Everyone seems to know everyone in the Haflinger world, and I've never hesitated to buy or sell through the AHR auction (and I've done both, multiple times).

    You can usually get quite a bit of hands on time with horses you're interested in, and most owners will let you test ride/drive as well.

    Info is always posted here: http://www.haflingerhorse.com/AHR_salepage.htm

    CindyB59, As a breeder of Haflinger sport horses I would agree with all of the recommendations above. I would also add myself (though I have none for sale at this time), and my trainer in Pennsylvania at Dreamfield Manor Farm. (Her website is outdated, but she has at least one very tall sport Haflinger gelding for sale.)

    I would discourage you from purchasing from the AHR sale and encourage you to purchase from a reputable breeder. Unfortunately, "sport horse" is becoming a catch-phrase that people are using at sales (when in many cases, the horse is not at all what one would consider sporty).

    If you are on the west coast, I would check out Wingspann Farm. She has several quality Haflingers for sale, including a fantastic stallion showing fourth level this year. Feel free to e-mail me if you have other questions.

    Good luck!! :-)

    Thank you. I did ck out your web page. I actually found an older gelding from a private home. I'm hoping he will work out perfectly. I want something to have fun with & very low level dressage. He was trained/shown to first yrs ago, lots of trails, etc. But thank you so much for the reply.

    Glad you found something that will work for you! I realized after I responded that I misread your post and that you were looking for a lower level horse that you could also trail. I guess I should not try to respond to posts late at night on my tiny cell phone! :-)

    Good luck with him! Hope he works out for you.
