Our market niche at Windermere Farms are Amateur Dressage horses of distinction!
Friesian-, ASPL Lusitano, Hannovarian and Oldenburg dressage horses are our main focus. Selecting 100% sound horses, with solid training and an impeccable disposition is our goal upon our travels in Europe. The perfect amateur dressage horse with competitive movement, classic beauty, and a beautiful mind!
At Windermere Farms Dressage with Friesian horses is our passion. Lusitano horses have impressed us through their mental strength and competitive movement. Hannovarians and Oldenburg dressage horses add the timeless elegance widely admired in the dressage world.
In any breed we focus on the foundation for a correct moving horse with a relaxed and cooperative attitude under saddle. Our mission is to find "the perfect horse" for a specific buyer. Creating that ideal match is extremely important to us, providing the basis for a happy and successful future for horse and rider. Windermere Farms consummates each sale by offering training for both the horse and new owner together, where both function in perfect harmony in the discipline of choice. We clearly distinguish between Trick trained horses, Classically High School trained horses, Competitive Dressage horses and Drive Trained horses. Finding a combination of these skills in a single talented horse is no exception amongst our highly skilled equine individuals.
