Classics Eventing and Freedom Equestrian Center are proud to announce that we have teamed up to launch our US-based sporthorse breeding program. Over the past several years, the Classics Eventing partnership has had great success procuring and importing high level performance horses from Europe. While we have greatly enjoyed sourcing these amazing horses, we have also dreamed of being able to produce and raise the same caliber of horses right here in the USA. We believe that the US-bred warmblood can hold the same prestige in upper level sport that we all have seen from their European counterparts - so much so that we have invested in that journey ourselves. Our vision for this breeding program is truly one of patriotism, and our ultimate goal is to see the US-bred warmblood earn their place amongst the elite at the highest levels of sport, especially under the saddle of US riders. We also endeavor to find ways to help US breeders come together to learn from each other and advance all US-based breeding programs for many years to come.

Concetto  x  Orion Fortuna 
Tenny is a bay 2014 German Sporthorse mare, bred in Germany and imported to the US as a young horse. She is a lovely type, great mover, bold, and has plenty of jumping scope. Tenny has competed through 2* level eventing in the US, and her sire Concetto showjumped to the 1.60m Nations Cup level with Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum. Concetto has produced offspring to the top levels of both showjumping and dressage. Tenny's dam, Uyana Cara, showjumped to 1.45m herself, and her dam Myra Cara competed to mid-level dressage. Tenny's direct mare family has also produced two Grand Prix level dressage horses, making her a lovely mix of both dressage and jumping lines.
