Kari has traveled the world to select some of the most incredible mares for her breeding program. Several of our mares are imported from farms in Ireland, the UK, and Canada.
We pride ourselves on keeping our broodmares in top condition. Hidden Ponds broodmares are handled daily. They are not simply turned out to pasture to have no human interaction. All of our mares are broke to ride, and are ridden during the off season after their foals are weaned, or on years when they do not have a foal at their side. Mares that are amenable to strangers handling their foals in public places are taken to shows starting when the foals are two months old. We show both the mare and the foal. We believe that this benefits both mom and baby, giving baby exposure very young and showing baby that mom is not worried, so they should not be either. This puts a lasting impression on a foal that is later expected to develop into a performance horse, so new situations are handled easily.

We are downsizing our breeding operation and several of our mares are available for sale. Feel free to browse our mares and if any interest you, contact us for a price. Please note that several are not for sale, and none of them are cheap. During the summer months, we are busy operating a farm and raising foals and therefore do not have time to get new photos or videos of mares. If you want to see more of a mare, we encourage you to schedule a farm visit.
