He won two Championships in 2006.

Desert Sheild We bred Desert Sheild for the first time in 2005 and have two geldings by him, a purebred from our Polish mare Viva La Orla and a Half Arab from our saddlebred mare. In 2008 our saddlebred mare produced a beautiful chestnut filly by him. All of his offspring have been sold. (See past sales page)

Prior to acquiring Desert Sheild, we successfully bred our Saddlebred mares to two well known stallions:
is a champion in both halter and performance, in the US and Canada. He is a National Show Horse nominated sire. We have bred to him 4 times. Two have shown very successfully at halter. The youngest we still own and have shown her successfully as a yearling. All have continued to do well in performance.


Hey Hallelujah++// a son of Huckleberry Bey out of Hallelujah Bask is well known for halter and performance successes. He won the "triple crown" (Scottsdale, Canada and US National Champion) not only in driving but also in English Pleasure. He is a National Show Horse nominated sire. We bred to him three times. Our first foal by him has multiple National Champion wins in Halter, Driving and Country Pleasure as well as unanimous Regional wins.
