Welcome to our farm!

Our family farm is located just under an hour's drive from the capital of Hungary, Budapest, in a quiet valley surrounded by rolling hills - a real horse paradise. The name is a tribute to my wonderful mare "Shannon", who mysteriously guided my life in new directions I never thought I would be going...  and eventually led me to breeding Morgans! More of that story perhaps later...

A few years back now we started looking for a piece of land to build our dream home on the countryside to find peace from the hassle and bustle of city life we used to enjoy previously. We ended up buying over 12 acres of agricultural land only to becoming a neighbour to my horse trainer and friend... The idea was, that he would use our land as a pasture, while my horse and I would be in good hands as far as her boarding and our training goes... a dream was beginning to unfold... 

Then my beloved Shannon passed away! My dream was shattered!

While we were busy building our new home, our friend, "mgy", (as the Natural Horsemanship trainer he is referred to) helped so many other horse people in this country and abroad to develop an aptitude and attitude that their "horses deserve better"...

Here we are now 2 years later, having recovered from my great loss and ready for the next adventure in life: launching a real pioneer project in Hungary: a colorful Morgan breeding program!

Our mission is to introduce and promote this unique horse breed in our own country, starting to breed colorful Morgans in this part of Europe, to offer dependable partners for you in any discipline, thanks to their outstanding conformation and intelligence. We believe that due to the Morgan horse's versatility, their gentle disposition that makes them safe enough for a child to handle, yet spirited enough for any horseman,  they will capture your heart at first sight, and become life-long partners in any arena or any trail... 

After a substantial study of the various Morgan families and bloodlines, we have carefully selected our mares and our reference stallions to maintain the superb quality of these horses. Visit us and see for yourself!

The farm was built from scratch on an empty agricultural field to later offer a perfect home to our herd. Believing that horses are most happy in an environment that resembles their original habitat, we are the first in Hungary to have created a unique "Paddock Paradise" horse keeping facility, that guarantees movement 24/7, offers healthy feeding and encourages natural herd behaviour. We now have a 52ft round pen, a 66x131ft arena, hay storage, a heated tack-room and a run-in-shed the size of a small barn...

We welcome visitors to our farm by appointment, so feel free to contact us! Come and enjoy the great outdoors and meet the horse of your dreams!
