Why buy a horse bred in the United States?
Aren't the European bred horses better?
There are several advantages to buying in the US. First, the horses we breed are European bred horses. Our mares are either imported or the daughters of imported mares. Our stallion comes from a revered dam line that is still active in Germany with top selling foals, auction horses, and approved stallions in both Hanoverian and Oldenburg breeding. We also selectively use imported semen to bring new blood into our mare herd. Second, because we breed German Oldenburg Verband horses, our horses are inspected by the same inspectors that judge horses in Germany. Though our foals are born in California, they are in the same studbook and have the same status as foals born in Germany. Third, with the dollar falling sharply against the Euro (currently nearly $1.40 per 1 Euro) the costs of finding, buying and importing a horse from Europe are prohibitive for most riders. A 15,000 Euro horse will cost over $32,000 by the time he reaches American soil. Your money will go much further here than it will abroad.
