What’s not to love? I fell in love with the sport of Dressage on a Trakehner and even showed to a National level on one. My pride and joy is Cinderella, “Ella”, (Tradition x Carmine (Tolstoi)) who recently went Premium with the Trakehner Association of North America (TANA) – she has the most amazing gaits, a gorgeous head and just the absolutely sweetest, snuggliest personality! I was introduced by Heather at Sovereign Farm – an incredibly knowledgeable Trakehner breeder, who has been a guide to me every step of the way. I’ve fallen head over heels in love with this breed and just how athletic and graceful they are. I’m very thankful to her, and the opportunity to be a steward of the breed myself ❤ IFYKYK – Kate F.
“Chase” – Sue B.
– Maxine H.
Forever Grateful; 6 year old part Trakehner mare Owned by Andrew Palmer – Tamara B.
This is Istas SLH a 13 year old Trakehner mare that I bred. She has taken me up to 3 rd Level dressage, and has done the A hunters with some Junior riders and also some Eventing, Jumpers and side saddle. When I broke my back she was the horse that got me back to riding as I could trust her to look after me . I trust her with beginner riders, and she is fun for more advanced riders . She is everything I hoped for when I started breeding Trakehners. – Shelley H.
My Trakehner mare Isabellea SLH – Shelley H.
