Young Horse Development
There is currently a big movement in this country to develop more American-bred horses here at home. However, the number of professionals that possess the knowledge and skill necessary to properly bring along a young prospect to the top levels of competition is very small. Currently, there is a large gap between American breeders and buyers wishing to procure the very best bloodlines. Matador Farm seeks to fill that gap. Jessica has vast experience working with young horses and knows what it takes to nurture the careers of promising young prospects. Whether you would like to explore the possibilities of developing a show horse for yourself in the future, or simply want to experience the thrill of ownership of a competition horse through investment, Matador Farm can help you reach your goals. A young horse can be a thrilling and rewarding investment, as most of a horses’ value is realized between the ages of 3 and 6. Proper training and show experience adds value to your young horse and increases marketability. To see what investment opportunities are out there, please feel free to Contact Us.
