Breeding and importing European sporthorses since 1980.
August Moon Farm – Breeding Show Jumpers since the late
80's. Our broodmares are a mix of Oldenburg, Dutch, Holsteiner
and Hanoverian lines, with successful jumping pedigrees. We
select modern jumper stallions and try to breed medium types as
prospects for the Show Jumper classes with an occasional hunter or
eventer sometimes available. Most of our young horses carry
papers of the Oldenburg Verband.
Our horses are raised in the fields with others. Following imprinting
of the foals at birth, we turn the mothers and their babies back out
into the mare band. The young colts are not weaned from their moms
until the spring of their yearling year, and the fillies stay in the
mare herd and their moms usually take care of the weaning of the
girls themselves. We believe that horses raised as close to the
way Nature intended make the best, well-adjusted horses for
human companionship later in life. We "gentle" ours in a kind and
positive way. At four, we introduce them to a saddle and bridle...we
never rush this part, as we believe a foundation properly laid
will last the life of the horse.
If you are looking for a new equine companion for use as a
showjumper prospect, or simply want a dependable warmblood to go
for trail rides on, consider the horses of August Moon
Farm–pasture raised to be physically sound, and started with
gentle kindness to be mentally accepting of their future with humans.
Contact us and we will be happy to talk with you about our approach.
Maybe we have your next horse. We won't waste your time trying to
talk you into something not right for you.
