Breeder Of World Class Horses
China Blue Farm, located in the Santa Ynez Valley of California is devoted to breeding and developing top hunters, jumpers and equitation horses. China Blue Farm is focused on producing sporthorse stars with top bloodlines. Americans should not have to go to Europe to find quality horses. We have the bloodlines to breed them domestically. China Blue Farm is dedicated to producing horses that have the temperament and suitability for amateur and junior riders.
China Blue babies are built for sport, strength and stamina to begin with. But by raising them out in the open, on California’s natural, clay-based terrain, this helps ensure young horses whose bones and musculature are better suited for the surfaces on which they’ll work throughout their lives.
“The time is ripe for well-bred, well-raised homebreds in the United States.” ~ Priscilla Tamkin
