Far Field Farm has been fortunate to have had some wonderful buyers come our way. Our horses have left here and been acquired by people who were looking for a special companion that would spend many years with them. Here are just a few of our horses and the people who own them. Interestingly, nearly two thirds of the horses on this page were purchased by people who had never owned an American Saddlebred before contacting Far Field Farm.
Jacquie selected two broodmares from Far Field Farm for her breeding operation. The first was Harlem’s Faire Maiden, and the second was the big bay, Brasilia. Both mares were big moving impressive horses with a lot of presence. Though Faire Maiden is no longer with her, Brasilia continues to be a wonderful mare for Jacquie.
Dale is a trainer and riding instructor in Washington State. She is one of a rare breed of instructors whose enthusiasm for what she does daily affects every person who comes to her for instruction. Two years ago Dale bought the young gelding, Far Field Buccaneer. Buccaneer became the featured attraction at a Jon Ensign clinic at the Light Hands Horsemanship event in Santa Ynez, CA. Here he is with Jon.
A few months later, she acquired Santo Domingo from the farm. Both horses spend their days doing many things because there is never a dull moment at Western Sky Horsemanship. They trail ride, they compete in Cowboy Dressage, they ride the range gathering cattle, and they go for beach rides. They take Dale’s young riding students to the local horse shows, and impress everyone with their calm demeanors and willingness to perform. Dale is a great horse trainer and wonderful riding instructor. Dale’s website is www.westernskyhorsemanship.com.

Whispering Winds Farm of Mulino, Oregon has purchased several horses from Far Field through the years. Denise and Barry Blacklaw have become increasingly involved in Cowboy Dressage and find their Saddlebreds are ideally suited to that discipline. The stallion, King’s Black Ace, stands at their farm and is a beautiful black stallion of sturdy old bloodlines. Our thanks to the Blacklaws for giving our horses a wonderful home with such conscientious and knowledgeable horse people as owners.

Tracey rides Cache all over their 900 acre ranch/vineyards and competes with him in the local gymkhana shows in Middletown, California. Cache competes successfully as a barrel racing and pole bending horse in those events. Tracey and Mitch have another Saddlebred mare and her sport pony bred foal. Their wines have won awards at international competitions in New York and California. www.hawkandhorsevineyards.com
