Offspring/Breeding Advice

Falcons stock have exceptional temperaments, beautiful paces and show a talent for jumping.

 

In 2017 Falcons first foal out of a warmblood mare proved to be an outstanding example of a “Sports Pony” named as Hammerwood Flamingo graded Supreme Youngstock Champion with the SPSS.

 

For Falcon to have sired both the 2017 SPSS Stallion Grading Supreme Champions, Longhalves Renoir, and the 2017 Supreme Youngstock Champion is quite an achievement.
