    Default Sporthorse breeders in MD/VA?

    I'm not currently looking for a prospect but might be in the semi-near future. I'm a bit new to the area and wondering which farms are in the area breeding sporthorse prospects? I'd be looking for a hunter that would grow to at least 16.2hh. Doesn't have to be a warmblood, I'm quite fond of TBs and currently own an OTTB. I won't have a fortune to spend, so I guess at this point I'm just window shopping. Never hurts to get plenty of research in ahead of time though. Any websites/names would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    You could look at the MidAtlantic Hanoverian club http://www.mahanoverians.com/

    We have a lot of breeders in VA and MD in the club.

    There is a two year old in training sale in Timonium the Monday after Preakness. You can get a two year old for less than 2k that is broke.

    We are in VA. We have a few foals per year and skies the limit for them. Hard to say what they will become, but have a little bit if everything.

    Some have become jumpers,eventers, and shown in hunter breeding classes.

    You're always welcome for a visit.

    I got my really lovely 2yo mare from a guy who has a small but extremely well thought out Holsteiner breeding program near Frederick. I hope to get many future babies from him despite the cross-country travel that entails!

    Default Last Laugh Farm

    Not to far over the MD border is Last Laugh Farm in Grantville, PA. They have a lovely breeding program with young horses available that could go in a number of rings. They breed several foals a year, and prefer to keep them till they are started under saddle, so they usually have several on farm to try at a time. We are waiting for a break in the weather to go and pick up our new boy from them. I can't wait! I got to meet him as a 3 month old foal at his inspection and now he is turning 3. I can't wait to finally get him home and having a riding horse to show. It has been a long time. David and Ellen are great to work with and will make finding your next prospect and fun one. Good luck.

    Pick up a copy of the Equiery - there are always really nice horses, farms, and breeders listed in there.

    Thanks Lindsey, this means a lot coming from a GP jumper like yourself. I have moved from Waters Edge to a small farm near Columbia, MD. Waters Edge will continue to breed with a few mares I sold her. I have 2 babies coming in the next couple of months, and a 3 year old Cassini II colt in Germany that will be started next month. I may be accross the country, but at least I am not accross the pond! Ha Ha right?

    Thanks again.

    The MidAtlantic Hanoverian Breeders can organize a multi-farm visit for anyone shopping for young prospects - foals through under saddle youngsters both with and without show experience.

    Default YOU are in a good place to look!

    VA/MD has LOTS of horse breeders and some really good ones as well.
    The Equiery and HorseTalk are magazines that have a few, Mid-Atlantic Hannoverian Breeders can put you in contact with Hann breeders.

    We are in the Shenandoah Valley, and there are plenty around. Lots up in NOVA.
    Good luck with your shopping.

    This may be further than you want to go, but Rolling Stone Farm in Slatington Pa usually has a very good selection of nice prospects for various disciplines.

    That would have been even easier to get to from my [former] company HQ, Tim....I feel like with your location you really should be part of the Q family rather than the company you're at! I'm working with the LT facility in Frederick, and I'm sure my boss can't figure out why I keep offering to go meet with them in person. When the subject comes up there's an [unspoken] thought process that goes something like this: "ah yes, it would be a nice time to plan a visit to see some lovely Holsteiner babies." You'll have to post FB pics when your babies arrive so I know when to plan my "business" trip

    And yes, much easier to ship from the other coast than another country

    I would enjoy your visit Lindsey, and thanks for the FB pics of Cassiana, I will be sure to show you the babies when they arrive. 1st one at the end of March. You will have to let me know how things are going with the Q folks, next time when we chat.

    We are just over the MD line in PA near Gettysburg, just over an hour from Leesburg. We have been breeding warmbloods for over 30 years, including top hunters such as Oberon, Sail Away, Enough Said. We have also bred some FEI Level Dressage horses as well. We stand the stallion Beste Gold, who is producing Amateur friendly 3'6" and Derby horses, and FEI prospects. We have some very talented youngsters line bred from Absatz( perhaps the most prolific Hann blood in Hunters in the USA) Our homebrbeds are reasonably priced and at all stages of growth and training.
