Rare Elegance New Horizons

Born: 5.10.18

Sire: Arno van het Nieshof (SUPREME/SILVER)


At the 2018 AHR National Futurity Ellie was the overall Champion weanling all ages and sexes in the very competitive SIP (Stallion Incentive Program) class, as well as Reserve Champion weanling and first place weanling pleasure filly!
Rare Elegance, aka “Ellie,” looks so much like her sire that we thought she was a colt when she was born! We did not offer the filly option on this cross inutero as we planned on keeping her and having Ellie take Rosie’s place when she finally retires from breeding–hopefully not for a long time! With two GOLD classified sisters–one tying for the second highest scoring horse in AHR history!–and mutiple full and half silver classified siblings–all of whom are excelling in dressage at various levels, this filly is sure to be a winner and follow in her sisters’ footsteps!!

We repeated this exceptional cross again for 2019. The filly option is available. We are currently planning on retaining a colt as a future stallion, but would entertain offers. This will likely be the last of this cross–the product of the only SUPREME mare and SUPREME stallion to date in AHR history! If you are looking for a future performance and breeding prospect by one of the most influential stallions in North America in modern Haflinger breeding over the last twenty years, this proven cross is a guarantee for quality and performance!

Rosie and Arno have done it again! This magical cross has produced yet another gorgeous exceptional filly! The smallest foal that I think we have ever had, Ellie grew quickly and caught up with her “sisters” in no time!
