At DDungård horses are not just our business but part of the family. As a breeding farm we mostly sell young stock by our stallions and one of our mares. We have invested a lot of resources, time and afford to produce each individual with high quality and capable parents and are raising these foals with the best care possible to unfold their potential.
Our stallions and brood mares are selected on pedigree, movement, performance & disposition. Some of our horses are stronger in one or the other and we try to make good matched between our mares and stallions to improve upon the next generation with each cross. We know our horses, mares and stallions, and usually have a very good idea how the resulting foal is going to turn out based on experience and known dominant traits of the individuals. But each horse/foal is unique and therefore we try to give potential buyers our honest opinion about their traits, ability, potential and personality. As much as our name and reputation goes with the foal, also our vision, thoughts and so a part of "us" goes with each foal.
To train a young foal from the start can be challenging, rewarding and fun! To train it the way you want and build a wonderful relationship of trust and respect right from a very young age, is a dream of many horse owners. While we try to make good matches between our horses and interested parties based on their ability and drive, buying a young Fjord from us means buying a prospect! That means, just because we believe our foal could be an outstanding dressage horse (prospect), it will not automatically win every ribbon without sufficient training and upbringing!
Because of the high quality in our breeding stock, our foals already command a higher price level as soon as they are born. With each passing year, more and more goes into an individual and the prices reflect then quality, training and progress of each horse.
All of our horse are current on vaccination, de-worming and trims when being sold. We enclose any issues we have observed with each horse.
