Mares


These mares are the foundation of our World Class breeding programme. We have sought strong mare lines with well documented family histories to increase our breeding success. Notice that each has achieved coveted approvals and performance ratings as well as having a bloodline history of success. These mares provide a proven foundation for the success of our foals and your future riding and breeding horses.


A German study shows a high correlation between the mare performance test results and the ability to predict the talents of the mares offspring


Genetically, the mare is responsible for at least 50% of the foal. Some breeders even argue by observation that the dam affects the offspring at a rate of 60% or more. In the majority of cases breeding experts will tell you the mares characteristics override the stallions. A rule of thumb in the breeding world is that you can breed a mediocre stallion to a great mare and still have a nice foal. But breed a great stallion to an undesirable mare? The results will be disastrous. Temperament, conformation and talent are each critically tied to the mares genetic structure, a structure she passes from generation to generation. Therefore, understanding the mares crucial rule in the breeding process is an undeniable essential part of the breeding equation.
