In Utero Foals

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO SELECT THE HORSE OF YOUR DREAMS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING! LET US DO ALL OF THE WORK SO THAT YOU CAN ENJOY YOUR FOAL OF A LIFETIME!

An in utero foal purchase from New Horizon Haflingers provides you with the opportunity to select a foal out of proven SILVER and GOLD classified ELITE and SUPREME stallion and mare lines at a very reasonable price. As breeders and owners of multiple horses that have been awarded many accolades in the sport horse world and made history for the Haflinger breed time and time again from 2013 to 2021, and as the 2017, 2016 and 2012 USEF Reserve Leading Breeder of Haflinger Dressage Horses, and the 2015 and 2011 USEF Leading Breeder of Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Haflinger sport horses, our record proves that horses bred by us have the conformation, movement, athleticism, temperament, character, rideability and trainability to excel in sport horse performance disciplines against other breeds. Our record also demonstrates how hard work, dedication, vision and commitment to one’s passion and dream can make small breeders competitive in a very large and competitive equine industry!

Our mares and the stallions we breed to are chosen for their outstanding conformation, movement, character, and temperament, all of which are reflected through their excellent show and classification results. They stand between @15H to @15.3H. Stellar himself stands @14.3H but consistently sires foals who average 15H, with some of his offspring maturing between 15.2-15.3H out of a variety of mares smaller than them. Our mares consistently produce athletic and top-quality foals that have achieved Premium status at their Westfalen (including Champion foals) and Weser Ems inspections as foals, GOLD PREMIUM, Silver Premium and Champion status at their RPSI foal inspections, and have gone on to achieve GOLD and high Silver ratings at their AHR inspections, with all thus far entered into Mare Book I at their breeding approval for RPSI and Westfalen inspections and many achieving Premium status and site inspection Champion. All but one of our broodmares have had successful show careers on the line and under saddle–especially in dressage and sport horse breeding venues–and have competed in both open rated shows as well as in Haflinger breed shows, and are inspected and approved for breeding through AHR, RPSI and Westfalen and entered into RPSI and Westfalen Main Mare Book I. (Zinderella was purchased at age five and had not been shown up to that point, but she was started under saddle, displaying great trainability and rideability, and later that summer was awarded Premium and high-scoring mare at her Westfalen inspection.) Thus, our clients benefit from the proven performance records of our mares and their offspring, and our continuous efforts in promotion and advertising. Several of our horses are also registered with the American Warmblood Society Sporthorse Registry and inspected and branded by them, receiving very high ratings!

Foals by our Austrian imported silver classified USDF DSHB National Champion stallion, Stellar TVR, are also eligible for registration through Westfalen and Weser-Ems (Oldenburg GOV), where they receive German registration papers and German passports, and the American Warmblood Society Sporthorse Registry. Stellar made history in 2012 as the first Haflinger stallion in North America to be inspected and licensed through Weser Ems and RPSI–two German sporthorse/sport pony registries–and the AWSSR, and then again in 2013 when he became the first Haflinger stallion in North America to attend the 30 Day North American Pony Stallion Testing. Stellar received outstanding scores and rave reviews from the Training Director and his riders, and became fully approved for breeding through several German sporthorse registries! In 2018 Stellar made history again by becoming the first stallion of all breeds of stallions—at one point out of over 250 stallions—approved for breeding through AWSSR to achieve all five stars in their Five-Star Program based on the accomplishments of himself and his offspring. And, as of the end of 2023, Stellar is still the first and only stallion to achieve this status out of 238 stallions of all breeds!

In addition to his excellent conformation, powerful movement and athleticism, Stellar also has an outstanding temperament and character, is extremely trainable and rideable, and most importantly, has proven himself to be an outstanding sire who consistently passes these traits and characteristics on to his offspring. He is the sire of the 2021 North American Sport Test Pony Champion, Standing Ovation New Horizons (out of VPrSt Ricola DTA), who is also the first stallion of any breed to attend the new three-day format of the test. Stellar is also the sire of the 2019 USDF All-Breeds Awards Program Reserve Champion (Open), Ressonance New Horizons (out of R Noble Rose APF). The inspectors’ comments for Stellar’s offspring at their Westfalen inspections consistently compliment them on their elegant, pretty type and their powerful movement, with walks that have good rhythm and stride (Rafinja scored a 9 on walk), uphill trots with swing, elasticity, and active hind legs that reach well underneath, and balanced canters. Out of all of the breeding age mares by Stellar presented to Westfalen NA thus far for breeding approval, all have been entered into the top mare book, several have been awarded Premium status and two have been site inspection Champions! Additionally, Stellar has sired numerous foals that were awarded Gold Premium status at their RSPI inspections and Premium status at their Westfalen inspections, several with overall scores up to 8.2 and individual scores to 8.5, with multiple foal champions. And, Stellar’s foals presented to Weser Ems were awarded Premium status in 2018 and 2019, and his second offspring ever presented to AHR was awarded GOLD in 2018 at her inspection and classification!

An inutero purchase from New Horizons includes providing all care for foals (i.e. handling, grooming, deworming, farrier) purchased through weaning free of charge. All foals have an IGG and health check within 12 hours or so after birth, and mares all receive rhino shots in their 5th, 7th and 9th month of pregnancy. We will also present foals that are eligible to the Westfalen Michigan inspection for a nominal fee to cover the help we must bring in to bathe and ready foals the day before, and to serve as grooms and help present foals the day of inspections. If you would like to have the foal shown in the future but are unable to do so yourself, you may elect to continue to board the foal with us at a reduced fee and we will show him/her for you if we are able to do so. When you get your weanling, he or she will lead, clip, bath, haul, and stand well for the vet and farrier, as well as have the wonderful ground manners and character that all of our horses are known for!

If you are interested in one of our young horses but would prefer not to raise a youngster until they are ready to be started under saddle, we can board horses purchased from us for you at a very reasonable rate until you are ready to take possession of them. We can also recommend trainers that we work with who do a wonderful job starting the horses driving and under saddle. We offer reasonable and competitive rates for horses purchased from us in utero, which enables our buyers to receive exceptional quality at a fraction of the cost!

A $1,000 deposit and signed purchase agreement will hold the in utero foal in your name with a live foal guarantee. You may also specify whether you would like a filly or colt. In some cases, monthly payment plans may be arranged for the balance due, and visa and mastercard are accepted as payment through Paypal and Venmo. If you are interested in a particular stallion cross with one of our mares, we would be happy to try to work with you on that option as well, but stallions must be approved by us and be a good cross on our mares.

Another benefit to our clients is that weanlings out of our stallion, Stellar TVR, are eligible for money back cash awards if they win their class at the National Show or National Futurity. Stellar is also paid up in the AHR Stallion Incentive Program (SIP) which offers payouts to weanlings at the AHR Futurity, and in the Haflinger Breeder’s Co-op Futurity, which offers large payouts to yearlings beginning in 2015. (i.e. foals born in 2014 are eligible for this class.)

In utero prices average $10,000-$14,000, depending on which mare/stallion the foal is out of/by (discounts available to return clients and available to approved show homes). We have been very blessed in that most of our foals offered for sale have sold inutero, sometimes two to three years in advance, with 100% of our clients being satisfied. We thank our clients for their faith in our breeding program, and would be happy to provide references upon request.
