Luxe Sport Horses Farm is located on southern Vancouver Island, which is the largest island along Canada's Pacific coast. We are just 15 minutes from the beautiful city of Victoria, which is the capital of British Columbia, and just an hour and a half ferry ride to Port Angeles in Washington State.
We are a family owned and operated breeding farm which has expanded and changed in some directions over the years.
Our love of horses and breeding aims first focused on the Trakehner breed in 1982, when we bought the German approved Trakehner stallion BLITZWIND, who was a half brother the Olympic jumping gold winner ABDULLAH.
Our first purebred Trakehner foundation mare was a Blitzwind daughter....LILLY.....whose dam LIBELLA II was a foundation mare of Hilda Gurney's very successful breeding program.
When Lilly was bred to ENRICO CARUSO in 1991, she produced our ATA approved colt LARAZZI, whose wonderful temperament and rideability enabled us to compete and win both Dressage in Canada and Hunter championships in Indio, California before he was 6 years old.
Over the next few years, we became more aware that there were not enough quality purebred warmblood mares in our area, and that generally there was not enough thought about the huge importance of the mare in the breeding 'equation'. This led us to find and import 2 premium fillies of the Holsteiner breed from Germany in the later 1990's and to add imported premium Trakehner, Hanoverian and Oldenburg mares over the last years.
It has been a lot of work and a lot of fun, and we are grateful to have met so many interesting and wonderful people here and in Europe who have helped and shared their experiences and knowledge with us.
