WineGlass Farm has been dedicated to the equine business for over 40 years. As natural athletes WineGlass horses have well rounded, cross-discipline backgrounds ranging from polocrosse, distance riding, dressage, jumping and even some calf roping and reining! Our foundation mares have been performance tested with a minimum of 500 distance riding miles. Soundness, trainability, willing attitude and competitive ability are genetically determined – all criteria we have used to select our broodmares.
The addition of our Shagya-Arabian stallion *BUDAPEST in 1990 complimented our foundation mares’ genetic potential. *BUDAPEST has brought excellent bone, frame, movement and personality to the WineGlass program. Today *Budapest progeny offer the same qualities of toughness, stamina, rideability and courage that made the ShA horses admired and desired so many years ago on the famous military stud farms of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. *BUDAPEST is one of the few ShA stallions in the U.S. to have easily completed the stallion performance standards established by the International Shagya-Arabian Society (ISG). *BUDAPEST is still the only purebred Shagya-Arabian stallion to receive USDF All-Breed recognition.
WineGlass Farm has made one of the biggest importations of new genetics for the US Shagya-Arabian breed in decades. Frozen semen from four outstanding European stallions is now in the US. The purebred Arabian Russian racing stallion Pagur is one of the stallions with a limited number of doses available. He is approved for Shagya-Arabian, Austrian WB, Arabian and Trakehner breeding. Doses of the dynamic Shagya-Arabian stallion Dartan offers completely new ShA genetics to the US & Canada in addition to an excellent sporthorse choice for Arabian mares.
