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.
