Spanish stallions have arrived
Our newest stallions, SDF Pegaso and Quemado Caracol were imported from Spain in late 2016. Both are currently in training in Florida with Luis Reteguiz-Denizard for the winter season, and will be available for breeding in 2017. Check our Facebook page for current photos and other information about both of these talented horses while we prepare their pages on our website.

Congratulations Shire Stallion Mufasa – 2015 USDF All-Breed Award
Shire stallion Mufasa X and rider-trainer Luis Reteguiz-Denizard concluded the 2015 season as winners of the United States Dressage Federation Adequan All-Breed Award for the American Shire Horse Association.
Stallion Management – Part Three
By far the most straightforward route to a well-mannered, gentlemanly stallion is through consistent training and exposure to the world. As with any horse, progressively introducing him to different environments, circumstances and venues such as shows, parades, trail rides, fairs and exhibitions, builds confidence when approached correctly.
Stallion Management – Part Two
“Ask a mare, tell a gelding, discuss it with a stallion.” There is a great deal of truth in this saying. In my experience, stallions are unique creatures in that they tend to develop relationships with one person in particular and work to please that individual, primarily because their contact with other horses is, in most cases limited.
Stallion Management – Part One
For the purposes of this article I will discuss our approach at Silver Drache Farm toward creating and maintaining content, pleasant, willing, working, fertile stallions that are as much a delight to the eye as they are under saddle or on the ground.
Go pony, go!
Silver Drache’s outstanding (and very handsome) Norwegian Fjord stallion PCF Vidar will be leaving next week for Lexington, Kentucky to compete at the National Dressage Pony Cup!
Norwegian Fjord SDF Sirene Begins Her Training with Kevin Wallin
Kevin Wallin is a horsemanship trainer based in Lebanon, Indiana, and we selected him to work with Siri based on his excellent references. Siri appears to have inherited her fiery sire’s athleticism, and we felt the benefits of professional training at this stage in her development were a solid investment in this filly’s value.
It’s a girl! Spring Arrives with a Norwegian Fjord Filly
Spring has arrived in Indiana, and we are very happy to announce the arrival of a foal as well. The beautiful SDF Sirene arrived on the morning of March 7, 2013. ‘Siri’ is purebred brown dun Norwegian Fjord horse filly by our champion stallion PCF Vidar, out of SNF Ragin.
Holiday Update from Silver Drache Farm
The fickle Indiana weather is at long last beginning to feel like winter. As we prepare for a holiday break from training, we’re also thinking about preparing for a new member of the family.
