Straight Russian... our exciting new program
In 2013 we teamed up with Fast Track Farms adding precious Straight Russian racing blood to our program.
We will maintain a small Straight Russian herd and also use the Russian blood to outcross to our Polish/Crabbet/Spanish lines maintaining our reputation for producing strong, versatile, athletic "using" horses

Straight Russian and Polish/Russian Cross Programs" page!
Please read Mykol's fascinating Story HERE... and how we ended up bringing him home!
For our new Straight Russian herd we chose mares that have the style, beauty and physical prowess of the classic Arabian war horse... big, bold, powerful, sound, strong boned, pasture raised tough, intelligent yet pretty enough "using" Arabians that bond superbly with their rider.
We picked only Russian Arabians who came from strong families (especially
female families) of outstanding athletes, bred only from those individuals
who have distinguished themselves in either racing or endurance riding,
while still paying attention to classic type.
The mares, and the one stallion Mykol, are really Russian Treasures all are black type" bred, that is all are by stakes winners and/or stakes producing athletes.
A stakes race is basically a race between winners, so that a stakes winner is a winner among winners:
TARATANTARA Tara a *Novator daughter
MOMENTS JENNIFER Endy a *Moment daughter
PENAMORE Pena, a Fast Ptrack daughter
FAST TRISHIA Trisha a Fast Ptrack daughter
FAH STOIKA "Fahs"; a Fast Ptrack daugher
STOIKHA II Stoi a Drug granddaughter
MEDSNAIA Meds a *Moment/*Tamerlan granddaughter
MARISKA "Risky" a Sambist daughter
MYKOL - Stallion, a Fast Ptrack son/Novator daughter
More information is available on their individual pages (follow links in the list above). You can also refer to the Pedigree dropdown. The pedigrees include links (look for small red or green triangles next horses names) for lots of information and photos on the various horses within the pedigree.
The heritage of the Arabian horse is that of the world's most beautiful horse, but also prized by European Calvary for exceptional endurance and toughness. Due to this reputation nearly all saddle horses in the world have had an admixture of Arabian blood.
We have tried our best to honor this part of the breed's heritage by selecting for and breeding this type of Arabian horse!
