Western Cross Ranch -  Broodmares

Broodmares
We love the halter and performance show rings, but without these lovely ladies, we wouldn't have the pleasure of participating in those venues.  Western Cross takes great pride in having developed an unusually solid breeding program, based on the blood of *Ali Jamaal, Bey Shah+, and *Gazal Al Shaqab, which offers clients a large choice of extremely typey, charismatic, well-conformed, and trainable young horses with excellent pedigrees.  Great stallions are important, but we believe it is high quality mares that truly set a breeding program apart.  Foals out of our mares have gone on to be valued parts of show and breeding programs around the world!
