Flawless NTF 15.1H
b.3.13.02 Nasdaq NTF x Fiona/Falsetta (GOLD/ELITE) SOLD 2016
I had been following Mary Procopio and her New Horizons Haflinger Sporthorses for some time before I decided to take the plunge and buy my beautiful new girl, Flawless. I recognized the quality and professionalism of the breeding program, and knew that Mary had the highest standards for not only breeding fine horses, but also in matching them with the right buyers. I trusted Mary implicitly (bc in fact I was buying w/o seeing the horse in person) and she did not disappoint me. I was hoping to find a horse that could multi-task. One with the athletic ability for me to ride and compete in dressage, but also be a family horse that others could occasionally ride. Well, I am totally in love! Flawless is a big sweetie, with so much potential, and an absolute joy to have every day. I am enjoying her so much, and excited about the future and spending many, many years together. I'm thrilled with her.
Mary's horses are very honestly represented, and well prepared to start their lives at their new homes, so the transition was an easy one, despite my rather challenging circumstances. I was moving, at Christmas time, from California to Michigan, and Mary worked with me so that both horses could arrive at their new home at the same time, to alleviate stress for me and the horses. She came over to help get us acquainted, and brought complete health records and breeding information. And each horse sells with a first option buy back contract, which shows how much she cares.
Haflingers are such wonderful horses, and we are lucky to have a resource such as New Horizons. I've been an equestrian professional for a long time, and bought horses in Europe and from many top breeders, and none has exceeded my experience in buying Flawless. Thank you, Mary, for helping make my Haflinger dreams come true!--Kathleen McCoy, Michigan

Ravenna of Lilac Farms
b. 5.9.06 Archimedes van Seadrift (Amsterdam) x Raven NTF SOLD 9/2007
"I bought Ravenna sight unseen which is something I thought I would never do. From the first time I talked with Mary I knew I could trust her and that she would honestly represent her horse. From the moment she arrived Ravenna has had excellent ground manners and has been a willing learner. My non-horsey kids are all able to handle Ravenna without any problem whatsoever. I would not hesitate to buy another horse from Mary because she not only loves and takes excellent care of them but they are handled and worked with and are ready for their new homes."--Eva Kaze, Indiana

b. 3.14.01 Nobleman of Tudor Oaks (SILVER) x Febe Ze NTF SOLD 3/2006
"I purchased Febe's Noble Lady from Mary Procopio. Febe is not only beautiful, but also has the best temperament of any horse I have known. She is sweet and willing, and obviously had a good start with Mary. I also own her son, a gelding named Andante of Lilac Farms. He also has a sweet temperament passed down from his mother. I would defintely buy another horse from Mary."

STALLION PROSPECTS AND COLTS
State of the Art New Horizons b.6.25.16 (Stellar TVR-SILVER x R Noble Rose APF-SUPREME/SILVER) SOLD IN UTERO in 2016
We basically made the decision to buy Stately before he was conceived, and yes, a lot of folks thought
we were crazy. We didn't try to deny it, but went ahead with the purchase, as well as special ordering
a colt, and said colt was to have an unusual facial marking! Well, Mary, Rose and Stellar held up their end of the deal
and State Of The Art arrived a bit ahead of schedule.
I am amazed at the time and effort Mary puts in to her babies. When he was only 2 months of age, we flew to Michigan (Thank you George) to see him at his RPSI inspection. This was totally new to us. We have done quite a bit with our Haflingers,
but knew basically nothing about Sport Ponies. When we saw our colt in person, he was breathtaking--Clipped up, bathed, braided, and leading like a pro. At 2 months he was awarded Gold Premium and was the highest scoring youngster!
He came home with us after the Futurity and we are continually amazed at his intelligence and attitude.
I realized that I have not put a halter on him for anything. He backs, whoas, comes, and steps over both left and right with voice
and the touch of a finger. He gets along with everyone I've put him with. Stately is a remarkable therapy horse, and has successfully calmed a rescue pony who suffered terrible panic attacks. He routinely approaches my 4 year old grandaughter and hugs her gently against his chest with his head. We have decided that he has been on Earth before, and he is an old man in some aspects, wise way beyond his years. Mary, we will always be thankful for you letting Stately come into our lives.--Martha Gugel, New Jersey

b. 3.8.10 Alfa of Genesis (GOLD) X Ricola DTA (SILVER) SOLD 2009 (IN-UTERO)

We are very excited and plan to present him at age 3 years old, for AHR Inspection and Classification as well as possibly Weser-Ems Oldenburg Inspection and AWS Inspection. Thank you for allowing us to purchase this Ricola DTA colt, sired by Alfa of Genesis, in-utero! We just love him!
