We are happy to share these select stallions that have made an impact in our breeding program and the kind people & friends behind them! Our breeding program consists of mainly McCarthy's Jesse James of Rivenburgh, Audrey Barrett's Arenosa bloodline and Philia Blazes Joe Dandy, with very few outcrosses. We place an emphasis on our horses (and their descendants) show careers, temperaments, performance and quality. This consistency is what we aim for in our program.
Rivenburgh's Jess Let Me Impress
AMHA/AMHR/ASPC Black Pinto Stallion
Impress is hands down the most beautiful miniature horse I've ever seen in my entire life! Standing at a true 33", every part of him is elegant and refined with a fabulously sweet temperament. He is always a highlight of every visit to Hunterberry Hill farm-- I always volunteer to brush him, bath him, love on him whenever I can!! Impress has transformed the Miniature Horse industry with his unmistakably Impressive foals!!
Impress's performance as a breeding stallion is unprecedented. He is one of the most consistent producers of World Grand Champions, World Champions and National Champions with so few foals on the ground. Since their dispersal, Hunterberry Hill is not expecting any Impress foals, not breeding outside mares or have any Impress offspring left to sell meaning that if you want anything "Impress" you need to search for the breeders who have smartly collected this bloodline.
McCarthy's Jesse James of Rivenburgh
AMHA/AMHR/ASPC Black Stallion
Jesse is a stallion that barely needs an introduction-- his get speak for him. Jesse is a 2x World Supreme producer, 6 of his get have earned the titles of World Grand or Reserve Grand Champion. He is a World Champion Get of Sire, as well as a National Reserve Grand Champion stallion himself. He lives in California at Painted H Ranch.
His length of neck, shoulder, hip and leg has really transformed the miniature horse industry post 2000's. He is ushering in the next generation of driving horses and some of the most beautiful halter horses in the world. I am forever grateful to Jesse for the impact he's made on the type of the miniature horse, and the contributions of his genetics to make my breeding program cutting edge!!
Silver Birch Adriano De Suerte
AMHA/AMHR Black Stallion | AMHR Name: SMO ADIRANO DE SUERTE
Adriano is proudly owned by Ken and Sandy Frank of Silver Birch Miniatures. He's a beautiful line bred Arenosa stallion with the genetic prepotency to put champions on the ground for us. Adriano's foals are known Canada wide for their beauty and build. He stamps each of his foals with his strong hip, short back, tight TINY ears and great necks. Adriano was destined for the show ring until he injured his eye as a weanling. So now his foals are doing their daddy proud. He is a tiny, refined stallion.
Philia Blazes Joe Dandy
1994 AMHA/AMHR Chestnut Stallion
"Joey" was presented with AMHA Top Ten Get of Sire in 2004 & 2007. He himself is a 2 x AMHA World Reserve Grand Champion Senior Stallion. His foals are following in his tracks with numerous titles to their names. They are intelligent, correct, small, typey and athletic. Joey is known for clean throatlatches, elegant Arabian necks and movement. They have excelled on a World, National and Local Level in Halter and Performance. Joey is the oldest stallion on my reference stallion list but he is ahead of his time in the quality he produced.
My first "Joey" baby was my beloved gelding Hunter (RIP 2015) Star Valley's Rocket's Red Glare, a red horse that touched my heart beyond words. His brilliant work ethic, heart and temperament made me set out to add more "Joey's" to my herd. To this day, I haven't had the heart to have another gelding. Maybe one day.
Lucky Four SantaFe Beau Bey
AMHA/AMHR Buckskin Stallion
Owned and Loved by Us from 2012-2019
Now Owned by 4 Stars Ranch
Beau is a typey stallion who is completely correct in everyway. He is well proportioned with a fantastic head and a great bold eye.
Everyone admires how sweet and quiet Beau is. He has the best personality which he passes onto his foals. His fillies are sweet and inquisitive with hearts of gold and his colts are full of spunk and 'look at me' attitudes and we know he will continue his legacy with Tirzah at 4Stars.
