Hanoverian Cross Sporthorses for Show Hunters, Fox Hunters, Eventing and Dressage
We've Been Breeding Sporthorses for Twenty Years
At Carrdian Farm we have been breeding fine Hanoverian cross sporthorses for twenty years. Our breeding program goes back to our first German registered Hanoverian stallion Grand Banks who was well known in the show hunters, fox hunting, eventing and dressage. He was known for his lovely gaits, his jumping ability with tight knees and big scope, but most importantly for his excellent brain. We did everything with him - he was a perfect gentleman!
We Continue Our Program Today
Currently we stand a son of Grand Banks - Bank Marque. "Marque" is out of a thoroughbred mare and reflects all the talents of his sire and even more. He stands 16-3, is a lovely bay and has three fantastic gaits that get him noticed everywhere he goes. Marque is an excellent jumper - he makes it all look easy. And, just like his sire he has the great gentle brain that allows us to do it all with him. Currently he shows as a hunter and fox hunts; he will be eventing this fall, and is such a gentleman that we take him to the pond bareback for a ride!!
Breeding Program and Theory
In our breeding program at Carrdian Farm we strive to breed only the best to the best. Our broodmares are carefully selected for each discipline for movement in all three gaits and athletic ability that will make their offspring winners and successful. Most importantly they must have a good brain. Many farms will breed a mare simply because she is no longer sound or too much of a fool to do whatever she was given to do. Not us. We breed our best and then sell their foals. This definately pays off in the end result.
