Living in the Southwest we found that there were few breeding farms in our areas dedicated solely to developing dressage horses. Thus, our search began by extensively visiting local stables, exploring local word of mouth and sales ads, and exhaustively researching online.

So we began our European journey not because we couldn’t buy in the U.S. but because after several months of searching we decided to alter our methodology which would hopefully improve our success rate.

Kossack, an Arab gelding, was the first of a long stream of Arabian and Half Arabian â€˜family’ horses in my barn. Kossack was ridden many hours on trails, he won many ribbons and trophies at weekend open shows, including the year he won NC State 4-H Championship in Trail Class, and he was an outstanding school horse.
