High Prairie Quarter Horses — Home of the "All-Around Quarter Horse"
We are dedicated breeders of American Quarter Horses with a special focus on the buckskin, dun, and grulla colors. We have owned and bred quarter horses since we married, thirty-five years ago, and have called the Northern Illinois town of Oswego home ever since.
High Prairie is the dream that we have pursued for the last 35 years. Over those many years, we have constantly and tirelessly improved our herd of mares and stallions, and we have our foals as proof that our work is paying off! They are the product which brings the qualities we value – great conformation, strong athletic ability, high intelligence, gentle disposition – to life. Our colts also benefit from socialization with other colts and mares during their time together in our spacious pastures and feed lots. This socialization makes them better temperment horses in the show ring, on the trail or in the stable.
Springtime at High Prairie is one of the most exciting times of the year, a chance to once again see our hopes and dreams arise into reality with the first steps of each fuzzy foal.
We want to welcome you to our website and we hope you enjoy viewing a very special part of our lives — the horses of High Prairie!
