New Horizons Haflingers offers exceptional world-class purebred registered Haflinger sport horses for sale that are tall, modern and athletic with good substance, and bone that are bred for temperament, trainability, rideability and character. Horses owned and bred by us are shown in major breed shows and open USDF/USEF rated shows from coast to coast throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada, winning on-the-line in dressage sport horse breeding classes and under saddle in dressage, eventing, hunters and jumpers, against Warmbloods and many other breeds. As the 2015 and 2011 USEF Leading Breeder of Haflinger Dressage Sport Horses, and the Reserve 2017, 2016 and 2012 USEF Leading Breeder of Haflinger Dressage Horses, we consistently produce sport horse type Haflingers of the highest quality. We may not be one of the biggest farms, but our record reflects that we are one of the best! Our focus on quality versus quantity ensures that horses get the utmost attention and care. Customers satisfaction is our priority, and we strive to match the right horse up with the right buyer. Our small, select group of mares were chosen from the best Austrian, German and Dutch bloodlines available, and we keep some of their exceptional offspring as future breeding and performance prospects.
New Horizons Haflingers have the temperament, rideability and personality that adult amateurs and young riders appreciate, and the talent, athleticism, and correct, pure gaits that professionals desire. Our philosophy is based on the belief that horses need to be extremely trainable, rideable, and willing to work, in addition to having eye appeal, excellent conformation, and correct movement. Our broodmares stand 14.2 1/2H-15.+H and are by GOLD, SILVER, ELITE, SUPREME, STAR, and/or NATIONAL CHAMPION stallions. All of our mares that have been inspected are AHR SILVER and GOLD classified and proven performers, all presented to Westfalen NA (RPSI) have been approved for breeding and achieved Mare Book I status, with many awarded PREMIUM status and inspection CHAMPIONS, and several have won NATIONAL CHAMPION titles through AHR, AWS, RPSI, WESTFALEN and USDF national shows, inspections, and year-end awards programs. Breeding age horses out of our program have been approved for breeding and are Silver and GOLD classified with AHR, as well as approved for breeding and entered in Main Mare Book I of RPSI and Westfalen, with many achieving Premium status, awarded site inspection Champions in Michigan and Virginia, and a colt bred by us by our stallion was approved for breeding in Maine through Westfalen pending performance results. Foals by our stallion bred by our clients have also been awarded Premium status in Florida through Weser Ems.
Our SILVER classified Austrian imported stallion, Stellar TVR, stands @14.3H and has a pedigree full of GOLD-rated horses, ELITE bloodlines, and World and European Champions. With his excellent conformation, powerful movement, and wonderful temperament, Stellar has quickly made his mark in the Haflinger and sporthorse world, and has made history for the breed in North America time and time again. In 2017 Stellar attended the National Dressage Pony Cup Championships--his first season at first level--including their dressage sport horse breed show. He was the NDPC DSHB overall Reserve Grand Champion, as well as the Reserve Champion Mature Horse and Champion Stallion. In 2013 Stellar became the first Haflinger to attend the North American Stallion Testing. With an overall outstanding score of 7.98, he was awarded his lifetime breeding approval and license (Stud Book I) for both Weser Ems and RPSI. Stellar is also the first Haflinger stallion to be approved for breeding through the American Warmblood Society, and in 2018 received his fourth out of five stars in their Five Star Recognition Program (/*/*/*/*/ /). As of 2020 Stellar is one of only four stallions out of over 200 stallions to have attained four stars through AWSSR! In 2011 Stellar was named USDF All-Breeds National Champion Haflinger, with the highest median score in both open and IBC classes of all Haflingers in the country. Stellar was the highest scoring stallion on the 2011 AHR U.S. inspection tour. All of Stellar's foals inspected by RPSI thus far has been awarded Gold or high Silver Premiums, with several inspection site Champions and high scoring foals, Weser Ems Premium foals, several Westfalen Premium mares and site inspection Champions, AHR Gold and Silver classified daughters, and a son approved for breeding through Westfalen pending performance results. His offspring are also winning national titles in the show ring, with two daughters named National Champions in their age group and one overall in the breed in the USDF All-Breeds DSHB program, and a daughter awarded USDF All-Breeds Reserve Champion in 2019 under saddle at First Level. Stellar's foals are in high demand, with all offered for sale since 2014 selling inutero, sometimes two years in advance.
Most of our horses are also registered and/or approved for breeding with Westfalen NA (RPSI) in addition to AHR.
