Dayton Ridge Farm ~ Richland Center, Wisconsin ~ (608)604-4840
Dayton Ridge Farm is located on top of beautiful Dayton Ridge, just outside of Richland Center, WI. Established in 1988 as a small family farm then primarily involved in Pony Club and showing Hunters with my children. Now that they are grown, with hopes of having good stock for my grandchildren to ride, I’ve started breeding Connemara Ponies, North American Sport Ponies, and Smaller American Warmbloods.
After carefully selecting my resident Connemara stallions and a few foundation mares, I’ve come up with quite a little herd of quality ponies, mid size horses & smaller warmbloods to sell. Most are double registered with the American Connemara Pony Society & the American Warmblood Registry / North American Sport Pony Registry. Skyview's Triton has been inspected and approved by both the AWR & the ACPS. HK's Danny Boy has been inspected & approved with the NASPR. All foals, by both stallions, presented for inspection are 1st Premium, scoring 7 or above. Danny has had four 1st Premium Premier foals scoring 8 or above. The highest being DRF Ireland, with a whopping 9.4, earning Reserve Site Champion at her 2011 inspection. DRF Little Einstein scored an 8.9 at his 2011 inspection, and DRF DeeDee scored a 9 at her 2012 inspection. Triton's filly, DRF Twilight also earned Site Champion at her 2011 inspection.
Foals are handled daily from birth and given attention to all their nutritional needs, with regular de- worming, vaccines and farrier work. Connemaras tend to be slow growers, maturing at age 5, often as late as age 6. Under saddle training does not usually start until age three, allowing adequate time as to not interfere with proper growth. Most sell green or before.
So come on in and take a look around. If you see something you like, give me a call so we can talk horses. (That’s what I miss most now that everybody does the on-line thing!) Sometimes life gets busy and I don’t get this site updated as often as I’d like. So if you don’t see what your looking for… give me a call anyway, as you never know what new horse might be in one of my paddocks! Dave has threatened to put a one way door on my horse trailer…I’ve been known to come home with more horses then I left with!
