At New Horizons Haflingers/Lilac Farms LLC, our focus is on quality, not quantity. We have carefully chosen our select group of mares based on years of research, looking for the best combination of Austrian, German and Dutch bloodlines, and mares with outstanding conformation, athleticism, temperament, trainability and rideability. Several of them have won National and Champion titles through AHR, RPSI, AWS, and USDF national shows, inspections and year-end awards programs. We are also raising some exceptional mares that we have bred ourselves as future producers for our breeding program and as future performance horses to represent our farm in rated open competitions. Our focus continues to be on horses that possess exceptional temperament, character and willingness to work, enabling them to excel under saddle and to be enjoyed by professionals and amateurs alike. All of our mares used for breeding that have been inspected are SILVER and GOLD classified through the AHR and have proven themselves by consistently winning and placing at the top of their classes on-the-line in breed and open rated shows, in year-end award standings against Haflingers and other breeds-including Warmbloods, and by winning in performance venues under saddle, demonstrating their versatility and trainability by successfully showing in dressage, English, and western classes. Most of our mares have also been inspected and approved for breeding through RPSI, all of whom are entered into Mare Book I, and some have been awarded Premium status.
Our broodmares are between 14.1 3/4H-15.1H and are by GOLD, Silver, ELITE, SUPREME, STAR, and/or multi-National Champion stallions. While most of our broodmares are R-line mares, they represent two different R-mare lines. Our proven SUPREME/ELITE mare, R Noble Rose APF, descends from the Rosie NTF mare line, one of the strongest Dutch lines in the Haflinger breed. Ricola descends from the same mare line as Rivella TOF, one of the four strongest Austrian mare lines in the Haflinger breed, as well as Annette (her damsire), another of the top four mare lines in Austria. Rendezvous is out of Rafael Rose TOF, who is out of Rivella TOF and by Aristocrat TOF (who is out of Rialta, THE best and most successful mare line in Austria). Flawless's dam, Fiona NTF, is an Austrian imported mare out of the GOLD/ELITE mare Falsetta, another premier mare-line in Austria. Mythical's dam was the first Star mare in the U.S. and is from a very strong mare line in Austria, sired by the great broodmare sire, Andrit. Myriam GHJ is Mythical's daughter, and both she and Rendezvous are by SUPREME National Champion stallion, Arno van het Nieshof, one of the most influential modern sires in the last two decades in the Haflinger breed, who has sired more Gold offspring to date than all other stallions combined.
Foals from our breeding program are eligible for registration through AHR, Weser-Ems, RPSI and AWS.
Horses with the Lilac Farms suffix were bred by our farm. From 2007 forward, foals out of our mares bear the New Horizons suffix, which is sometimes shortened to NW_HRZN.
