Myriam GHJ

AHR Inspected and Classified SILVER, Approved Westfalen NA Main Mare Book

Born: 2011


Sire: Arno van het Nieshof (SILVER/SUPREME)

Dam: Mythical TOF (SILVER)

New Horizons is excited to announce our most recent addition to our select mare herd, Myriam GHJ, out of the premier silver classified mare, Mythical TOF, and by the Dutch imported silver classified SUPREME National Champion stallion, Arno van het Nieshof!

We regretted passing up on the opportunity to purchase Mythical as a young filly, and we have always wanted a second Arno daughter to add to our breeding program to breed to Stellar, so it is fate that she has found a home at New Horizons alongside her dam! Myriam stands @15H with a very sporty, athletic build and is an exceptional mover, with incredible power and reach from behind! Like her sire and dam, she has a beautiful head, long neck, excellent wither, clean bone, and an exceptional pedigree! Myriam’s sire, Arno van het Nieshof, is the first stallion in North American history to achieve SUPREME status based on the scores of his offspring at inspections. With numerous gold and silver classified daughters and several silver classified sons, Arno has had a huge impact on the Haflinger breed in North America. Myriam’s grandsire on her dam side is the Austrian imported 2004 National Champion, Aristocrat TOF, the first stallion to achieve AHR GOLD status at inspection and ELITE status based on his offspring at inspections, and her granddam is the great producing imported silver classified STAR mare, Malvina TOF (deceased). This winning combination has produced one champion after another over the years, and this mare line has produced multiple silver and gold classified sons and daughters!

Myriam’s dam, Mythical won first place in her class at the AHR National Show and was named Reserve Junior National Champion Filly in 1999 as a yearling, while her older sister, Mystique TOF, won her class and took home Reserve Senior National Champion Mare honors. Another full sister, Magnificent TOF, also won her class! Mythical and Magnificent also won first place in the Produce-of-Dam class and placed second in the Get-of-Sire class at both the 1999 AND 2000 National Shows! At the 2000 National Show, Mythical placed second in her two-year-old filly class and won first place as a two-year-old at the GLHA Futurity that same year! In 2001, Mythical again captured 1st place in her three-year-old pleasure mare class at the National Show!

Myriam’s grandsire, Aristocrat TOF is known world-wide for his exceptional movement and his prepotency as a sire, and has had a successful performance career in dressage, jumpers, driving and eventing in the U.S. He is the sire of numerous National Champions and gold and silver classified sons and daughters, many of whom are successfully competing and winning in sporthorse disciplines, including dressage, eventing, hunters, and combined driving. Aristocrat was the first stallion to achieve
