We began our breeding program for Dressage horses in 2014 with our first crop of foals arriving in 2015. As with other breeders we are sure to select quality stallions. More uniquely, however, we put extra emphasis on the quality of our mares. We rely heavily, although not exclusively, on embryo transplant so we can keep our mares in training.
Batida is a 2009 Hannoverian mare by Brentano II. Brentano II is the well-known Hannoverian sire of Debbie McDonald’s Olympic mount Brentina.
Flaming Heart, aka “Flame” is an Elite Oldenburg mare thanks to her 2 premium 2015 foals Dolce Flame and Rhoda. Flame is now retired but competed successfully through Prix St George. As a 6 year old she competed at the USEF Young Horse Dressage National Championships in Kentucky.
Florenciana is a 2011 KWPN mare that is a full sister to the well-known stallion Florencio.
Honeymoon aka “Honey” is currently training Grand Prix with well-known Grand Prix Dressage Trainer Laurie Falvo. She was already a proven broodmare when we imported her as a young mare from Holland, where she has 4 progeny.
Sonett was already a proven show horse when she arrived at Templeton Farms from Holland/Germany. In 2015 she won the 4 year old championship in Wesphalia, Germany.
