Breeding Services

American breeders and show people do not always take full advantage of the fact that we have some of the very best equine athletes in the world right here in the USA. Spy Coast Farm strives to encourage the use of these horses in a breeding capacity by providing advice on the pros and cons of collecting stallions and breeding mares (for embryo transfer) while they are in active work or showing. It is important that we create a talented and affordable pipeline of domestic sporthorses for the future of our sport.

We support the "breeders maps" being developed by the USEF and USHJA as effective ways to identify breeders across the country and encourage their use by those looking to buy an equine athlete. It is important to support our industry right here at home.

Spy Coast Farm wants to be your partner in breeding performance horses. We realize that most stallion /mare owner relationships are fleeting and often fade after the foal is born. We want to change that relationship by offering ongoing support and advice to those who choose to breed to our stallions.

We hope to start that relationship with the breeding decision itself. A Spy Coast Farm representative (usually Lisa) will be happy to discuss your proposed breeding with you. We know that it is often impossible to see your chosen stallion in person, so we offer photos and videos and will review the unique qualities of each stallion with you frankly and honestly. We are happy to review your mare's conformation, pedigree, temperament and accomplishments with you in order to make the best pairing.

While it is Spy Coast Farm's policy to encourage the registration of all foals, we know all too well that even terrific mares often lack their original paperwork. We do not turn mares away due to lack of a documented pedigree. We WANT to breed our stallion to your mare and will make every effort to help you with any registration-related issues that you may encounter.

We occasionally get requests from mare owners to board their mares to breed at our facility. Our space is limited, but we will take seasonal boarders on an individual basis if they are breeding to a Spy Coast Farm stallion. We try to save these spots for mares who are particularly difficult to get in foal. In these cases, we charge daily board and veterinary fees in addition to the stud fee. Please contact us early in the season if you are interested in this service.
