Where did our story begin?

Well, once upon a time back in 1993, we were on a mission to find that ‘Mr. Right’ – the best matched sire to breed to our German-descended Trakehner mare. We won’t ever forget searching and searching throughout the U.S. to find that extra special Trakehner stallion – a search that ultimately led us to Europe where we finally found that perfect match for our girl!  Little did we know that we’d end up as exclusive agents for Induc in the U.S. and Canada nor did we have any idea we would have a lifetime opportunity to import Induc’s stallion son…

So, to make a long-story-shorter we had the great honor and privilege to import and become the human companions to what turned out to be a true horse-of-a-lifetime, our German Trakehner Stallion, Happy Hour. Both Induc and Happy Hour are the absolute consummate gentlemen and both who have produced generations of excellent offspring, consistently producing versatile sport horses that consistently possess exceptional character, temperament, ridability and trainability for which we’re very proud.

So much has happened since the late 90’s (many  wonderful, positive experiences) and I sure wish we could turn back the hands of time, as they say. Multiple and significant life-changing challenges have been presented to us, particularly over the last decade that forced us to follow a far different path than we ever imagined. With this said, we certainly have been blessed to recognize and experience some of those “silver linings” along the way. 

Thanks for your patience while this page is under construction – Still a “work-in-progress”…
