We are proud to announce that Faroe SDSF has found his forever home! No doubt, he will make his wonderful new owner very happy.

HUGE thanks to John Mason for his expert work in giving Faroe a solid foundation for success! We could not have asked for a better outcome for our sweetest boy. Faroe, you will be missed dearly!

HUGE thanks to John Mason for taking this special boy to the next level. Faroe is going to be an absolute dream for any amateur or junior/young ride. Sweet, willing, uncomplicated. A total delight!

Faroe SDSF is a tall elegant gelding that has the both the talent and attitude to be a pleasure for either an ambitious amateur or young rider to bring up the levels. He has a lofty, cadenced trot that appears effortless as he floats around the arena and a balanced easy canter. He is friendly and ha...

Not so little anymore! This coming 2 year old is looking stellar! Beautifully sculpted neck and head. Good bone and well muscled from her rough-housing with Flying High.

Diamond is certainly going to top 17 hands by the time she's done growing. She's going to need a runner with longer legs than I can manage this year...currently taking applications! 😅

A capstone proud moment for the SDSF Team!

This year, our very own second generation offspring Lord Louie SDSF (now lovingly owned by Carrie Willis Leach) was second in the 2021 AHS Sport Horse Breeding Awards for colts & geldings scoring 81.025%...and our recently acquired rockstar future matriarch Lady Sioux WS (bred by Jan Marquardt, Walkabout Station) was second in the 2021 AHS Sport Horse Breeding Awards for fillies scoring 80.650%.

Flying High (bred by Shannon Brooks) gained valuable experience and an Honorable Mention in the Older Fillies scoring 75.700%. I am so looking forward to her start under saddle this Spring. She will, no doubt, be an eyecatcher in the dressage ring!

Thanks to the AHS for providing breeder recognition awards! Certainly feeling the love!

Time for this coming-4-year-old to go back to school! Huge thanks to John Mason for giving this promising, sweet boy his next-level under-saddle training. We couldn't ask for a more professional program for Faroe to develop the best foundation to support his full potential. An investment we are absolutely willing to make for this guy! I'll miss seeing his kissable nose from my kitchen window...make us proud, Faroe!

🎅 Ho Ho Ho! Holiday special! 🎁

Faroe SDSF is ready to ring in the new year with his own special someone! For all inquiries made before 12/25/2021 that result in a completed sale by 12/31/2021, we're offering a 🖐K discount.

We had intended to keep him in the family, but don't have the time to give him the affection and attention he craves due to the growth of our breeding program. Our loss is your gain!

This sweet boy is headed back to school in January...snag him before his price increases with training. Bonus points given to a competition/show home, with references required. 😉

Pikko del Rebaño SDSF (2017 Pikko del Cerro x Ideal)

Really coming into his own physically! "Coal" has been back home to continue growing in the field with his buddy Faroe for the winter. We like to start them slow and let them tell us when they are ready. I am SO glad we did that with this guy...he is really blossoming! We recently found out he LOVES to jump...so maybe his next under saddle experience needs to involve some cross training? I think so!

Asking $25K. Hocks/stifles pre-screened with no findings. UTD shots, worming, dental, farrier. He's a barefoot, all around easy-keeper!

2021 was a big year for us, in so many ways!

Our Lord Louie SDSF rocked it in the USDFBC, landing a RESERVE CHAMPION USDF year end award for Current Year Colts. Now lovingly owned by Carrie Willis Leach. Louie is second generation of our breeding program, and a cross we will surely be repeating next year.

Newly acquired Lady Sioux WS was THIRD PLACE USDF year end award for Current Year Fillies, bred by Jan Marquardt of Walkabout Station. We are thrilled to add this sweet filly to our string of young future rockstar producers.

Flying High (bred by Shannon Brooks) and Only Diamonds SDSF gained valuable experience this year with strong scores, earning themselves 9th in 2YO fillies and 11th place in yearling fillies, respectively. Both showed very well, despite Diamond's rather awkward growth stage. We look forward to Flying High's start under saddle next year, and Diamond continuing to "fill in" her long, lanky stature. Both are going to be fairly tall and both have beautiful, elegant movement that just need the power of muscular development to be able to showcase completely. They both probably also need a better handler with longer legs next year...currently accepting applications 😉

Finally, after 11 years of slowly building this breeding program, my mother, Lynn Masin, and I made the DSHB Breeder of the Year ranking at 12th place, solely based on scores for Lord Louie SDSF and Only Diamonds SDSF, both second generation offspring from our foundation mare, Jeopardy). We are popping the champagne! Having lost Jeopardy last Fall (to old age), this is such a sweet and meaningful capstone for her contributions to the next generation of top sporthorses. Her influence on athleticism and personality can be clearly seen through the lines. Can't help but smile every time I see one of her progeny with that spark in their eyes, typically about to get into playful mischief. Cheers to you, Jeopardy!

We are thrilled to have Fabregas in the program for our next generation of top-level sporthorses, represented by the elegant Flying High (2019 Fabregas × Fidertanz, bred by Shannon Brooks)!

Congratulations to Elite Hanoverian Stallion Fabregas (Florencio I-SPS Dschinn/De Niro) and owner/rider Meg Williams for winning the USDF Region 2 Open Grand Prix Championship this weekend. This is especially remarkable considering that Meg has been traveling around the country for the last several weeks on the AHS inspection tour!

Sierra Downs exciting expansion underway!

This year marks a major breakthrough for us in the maturity of our breeding program. With the acquisition of a couple more very special fillies (future broodmares), we've run out of space!

Shown here is the future home of Sierra Downs - Main Campus in Field Store, complementing our current facilities at Sierra Downs - Macedonia in Hockley.

Stay tuned to this page to follow our progress as our dreams come to life. 😁

After a busy and prosperous foaling/breeding season, we'd like to take this opportunity to finally announce a few sales. This year, we've placed THREE of our youngsters into Houston-area homes, an especially fantastic treat for us that we get to continue to watch their development up close.

CONGRATS to both horse and human, and cheers to their blossoming partnerships! Thank you for giving these SDSF boys a special place in your families!

Starfire SDSF (2017 grey gelding by Sternlicht o/o Ikuma by Ideal) partnered with Casey Denny of Houston, TX

Qash SDSF (2019 chestnut gelding by Qredit o/o Ikaika by Ideal) partnered with Cassidy Himmelberger of Houston, TX

Lord Louie SDSF (2021 bay colt by Louisville HTF o/o Qrystal Cadence SDSF by Qredit) partnered with Carrie Willis Leach of Magnolia, TX

We are thrilled with these homes and love hearing back on their progress! Thank you!

Woohoo! 2021 is a big year for us at SDSF!

Tons of success in finding perfect homes for our young stock...and we finally got ourselves branded! We're "growing up" quickly now! Look for us at the shows this year, sporting our new digs. More big news to come on our forthcoming expansion this Fall 😉

Huge thanks to SP Rhodes for doing a stellar job translating our thoughts into this beautiful logo that captures our roots in the Nevada Sierras, and passionate love for breeding top quality dressage sporthorses.
