In late spring 2015 Templeton Farms welcomed the first 3 foals in our fledgling dressage horse breeding program.  As other breeders we are sure to select quality stallions.  More uniquely, however, we put extra emphasis on the quality of the mares.  Our foundation mares, Flaming Heart and Honeymoon, come from the highly successful stallions Florestan I and Hotline.  This year we have added a Brentano II mare Batida de Coco as well as another Florestan I named Florenciana. 

We had a lot of help with our first crop of foals. Frank Luetz provided great insight with the selection of stallions, and our veterinarian David Eckstein spent many late hours with us to inseminate the mares. The 2015 foals are all fillies: Rhoda, Dolce Flame and Roccia Luna. We plan to raise the fillies on grass pasture at the farm until they are 3, when we will put them under saddle before breeding.

Flaming Heart aka “Flame”Flaming Heart aka “Flame”

Flaming Heart

Flaming Heart aka “Flame” was a show mare until we bred her in 2014. She is registered Westphalian but an Elite Oldenburg mare thanks to her 2 premium foals in 2015, Rhoda and Dolce Flame.  Until her retirement to be a brood mare she competed successfully through Prix St George.

Honeymoon aka Honey


Honeymoon aka “Honey” is currently training Prix St George with well-known Grand Prix Dressage Trainer Laurie Falvo.  We hope she will make her PSG debut in the 2015-2016 show year.  Honey is registered Hanoverian and already a proven broodmare, with two foals in Holland.  In 2015 Templeton Farms Equestrian welcomed Honey’s first foal; we expect another arrival 2016.

SonettSonett is the latest addition to the TFE


Sonett is the latest addition to the Templeton Farms Equestrian family of mares. She is already a proven show horse, in 2015 she won the 4 year old championship in Westpahlia, Germany.  We hope for a long and successful showing and breeding career for the status breed mare.

Batida de Coco

Batida de Coco

Batida de Coco is 2009 Hanovarian mare by Brentano II. She arrived at Templeton Farms spring 2015 and we expect her first foal in 2016.

Florenciana aka Ana


Florenciana aka Ana came to Templeton Farms in fall 2015.  She is a full sister to the KWPN stallion Florencio!  We are keeping the 2011 KWPN mare under saddle thru the beginning of 2016 in hopes of competing in a 5 Year Old Dressage class or two before taking some time out for her foal.
