We currently have two broodmares in our breeding program: Estevan, a branded Hanoverian mare by Escudo I and Aviary, a Canadian Warmblood (CWB) registered and approved mare by Arkansas.


Aviary is a 16.0 hh large-framed grey Canadian Warmblood mare. Click for larger photo.

Aviary is a 16.0h large-framed grey Canadian Warmblood mare, born in 1990 and acquired in foal by Hidden Orchard Farm in September 2001 from Krammer Warmbloods in Alberta. Avi was bred by Touchstone Farm and is by the Hanoverian stallion, Arkansas, imported to Canada and former member of the Hanoverian State Stud “Prussian” Quadrille. Arkansas was approved by the Hannoverscher Warmblutzuchter e.V. and the Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association (CWHBA). He produced top performance horses in Germany, including Escudo II, and in Canada in both jumping and dressage. He is known for passing on his elegant top line, which Aviary has inherited.

Aviary is out of an Abrupt mare, Amsel and is three-quarter Hanoverian. Both Arkansas and Abrupt are well known for siring quality horses that are athletic, sensible and very rideable. Avi has a super temperament, is easy to handle, sensible and has wonderful movement. She passes on incredible athleticism, strong work ethic and a huge heart to her foals. Her babies have been hugely successful in the hunter/jumper and dressage rings.
