WELCOME TO HIDDEN SPRINGS RANCH
We founded Hidden Springs Ranch in 2004 with the goal of breeding warmblood sport horses of the quality that can be found in Europe. We started with a few select imported mares and have since expanded our mare band to include several that we have bred ourselves.
We are now breeding our fourth generation of excellent foals. Our breeding program is validated by the high number of recognized Stallion Prospects, Foals of Distinction, and Premium foal awards received at breed inspections.
Please look around and contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit.
Hidden Springs was well represented at the first day of the Great American Insurance Group/USDF Breeders Championships West Coast Series Final, held September 29, 2016 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
Our yearling colt Leander HSR (Lord Carnaby x Haverford’s Redhawk by Hohenstein) earned the Colt/Gelding Championship with a score of 81.00%. His stablemate Sibelius (Sir Donnerhall x Dear John by Ferro) took the Reserve Championship with a score of 79.25%. Sibelius was the 2015 GAIG/USDFBC Colt/Gelding Champion.
In the Filly Championship division, Fait Accompli HSR (Fackeltanz x Santina by Sir Donnerhall) was named Reserve Champion. The judges rewarded her with a score of 78.163%, commenting on her “lovely type, bright future as a dressage horse.”
Hidden Springs Ranch had outstanding results at three recent Breed Shows, claiming Champions and Reserves at every outing.
Fait Accompli HSR (Fackeltanz x Santina by Sir Donnerhall), a yearling Oldenburg GOV filly, claimed the Champion Filly title at Golden State Warm-Up I, Golden State Warm-Up/Cool Down, and Starr Vaughn Summer Dressage.
Her stable mates Leander HSR and Sibelius earned Champion and Reserve Champion Colt/Gelding awards. Leander HSR is by Lord Carnaby out of Santina by Sir Donnerhall. Sibelius is a three year old gelding by Sir Donnerhall out of Dear John by Ferro.
Leander HSR, an Oldenburg yearling colt, claimed Champion Colt/Gelding at both Golden State Dressage Warm-Up/Cool Down and Starr Vaughn Summer Dressage, followed by Sibelius as Reserve Champion.
At Golden State Warm-Up I, the results were reversed with Sibelius named as Champion and Leander HSR as Reserve.
All of their scores have been 79% or above.
Previously, Sibelius was the Champion Colt/Gelding of the 2015 West Coast Series GAIG/USDF Breeders Championship.
The Hidden Springs Ranch team now head to the 2016 Great American Insurance Group/USDF Breeders Championship West Coast Series Final, held at the GAIG/USDF Region 7 Championships in October.
