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 Champion titles through AHR, 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.
Our broodmares are between 14.2 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 premier ELITE mare, R Noble Rose APF, and her daughter Romantique descend 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. Flawless's dam, Fiona NTF, is an Austrian imported mare out of the GOLD/ELITE mare Falsetta, another premier mare-line in Austria. PIM's dam, Precious MSC, is the first mare in AHR history to achieve ELITE status based on the inspection results of her offspring, and offers strong foundation lines that bring much diversity to our breeding program.
We intend to have our broodmares inspected through Weser-Ems and/or RPSI and AWS, in addition to being AHR inspected. The resulting foals will be 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.
