We strive to breed PRE horses that are true to breed type. Horses that are sound and functional in body and mind. Temperament and good work ethic are very important to us. We ride our mares as well as stallions. Many of our horses are competing in open dressage successfully including several at FEI levels. Some of our horses are shown in ANCCE Morphology classes. Our horses are also trail ridden as we want to produce well rounded riding horses. We carefully choose stallions to complement our mares. All of our breeding horses have been revised and approved for breeding by ANCCE, the parent breed organization in Spain. We believe in breeding for quality, not quantity, and usually only produce two to six foals of our own per year. We currently stand two PRE stallions shown to Grand Prix to outside mares and (Gumer).
Our mares are carefully monitored during pregnancy, ensuring proper vaccinations and nutrition. About a month before the expected foaling period mares come into the barn at night. They have large, safe, clean foaling stalls monitored by camera. Physical checks happen every night, sometimes several times a night. Mares are always attended for foaling. Handling of the foals begins immediately. At twelve hours old all foals are tested for passive immunity transfer from their dam's colostrum with an IgG test. Foals have early hoof trimming to ensure proper growth of the legs. Our mares and foals spend most of their time in pasture in appropriate herds, ensuring the good development of muscle, skeletal system and social skills needed to mature well. Foals are typically weaned at four to six months of age, each according to the needs of the mare and the foal. All foals are inscribed into the Spanish Studbook managed by ANCCE. This includes a DNA profile to confirm lineage and a microchip implanted. They are freeze branded with our farm brand. Handling of the foals happens on a regular basis ensuring a young horse well prepared to go into the world.
