COVID-19 CHANGES

We are open, but things are a little different!

All tours and trail rides are by appt until further notice.  Please call 24hrs in advance to schedule your time as we work very hard to keep everyone safe while still providing an opportunity to get the family outside in the fresh air.  Help us, help you stay safe and healthy during this time. 

Tours: $20 Adult, $10 kids under 8
Trail Rides: $75 per person plus tips for our guides (they are truly the heroes here)

Listen carefully to our VoiceMail when you call as this situation is very fluid and we will update there first.  

Thank you so much everyone! There is light at the end of the tunnel if we all work together!

God Bless & God Speed!








WELCOME TO CLASSIC CITY FARMS
A QUICK DISCLAIMER:
Classic City Clydesdales is a family owned and operated breeding facility where the primary focus is breeding top quality Clydesdale horses for work and show.  We have invested not only the time in researching, but also the copious funds necessary to institute an impeccable breeding foundation.  We are not a "production breeder!"  We do not breed to inundate the market with un-saleable horses.  We do have "occasionally" a horse that can be placed inexpensively due to old age or physical limitations.  But, keep in mind when you shop with us "bargains" are not our forte.  Also, we do not AND will not sell horses to inner city carriage companies that don't have the means or know how to care for one of our animals. If you do not have the interest in learning everything there is to know about taking care of a Clydesdale horse and making them a member of your family then we are not your supplier.   We have had our fair share of "repairing broken minds and spirits" and will take in hard case Clydesdales occasionally from the right situation.  

*Please see our page about RESCUE CLYDESDALES in a different location on our website.     SM

 Our dream started in 1998 with the purchase "at sale" of a Clydesdale stud colt named Sampson.  We had no way of knowing that this horse would change our lives.  Having grown up with Quarter Horses and Paint Horses this exquisite, majestic creature was amazing to the eye and soft on the heart.  We fell in love with this noble breed immediately.  It is our sincerest hope to improve the quality, longevity and hardiness of the Clydesdale horse  through well planned breedings and careful stewardship. We have searched all over Canada, the US and Scotland for our foundation animals.  In our opinion we have acquired some of the best quality blood lines available.

It is a "family affair" at Classic City Clydesdales.  Shannon Martin oversees the day to day operations on the farm alongside Mark Martin, and Felipe Tenorio.  Each team member plays their part and brings to the farm a unique set of skills and ideas.  


Felipe is indeed our "horse whisperer!"  Felipe has a natural love of our horses and works daily with our foals, yearlings and young stock.  When they leave our farm they are sociable, well handled and truly enjoy their human experiences.  He is quiet and solid and we are lucky to have him here on the farm.

BREEDING....


At Classic City Clydesdales we have a number of quality breeding stallions.  Zorra Highland Captain, 2S Barnaby's Colossal Latch, Sandy Ridge Kayden, Parnell Ranch Protege Peyton and  Luis Armstrong of Classic City.  Each stallion has been selected for the traits they have that might improve on our already spectacular mares.    Parnell Ranch Protege Peyton is our most recent addition.  Our dear friends Jack and Michelle Parnell have an impeccable reputation in the Clydesdale world and Peyton is the produce of their stallion Azars Protege and Priest Lake Miss Hannah Blue.  His first offspring landed at Classic City in 2019 and we are very pleased with his filly out of our Lynden Manor Lucie mare.  

Each stallion is a genetic powerhouse with strengths that enhance each of our mares.  Our boys pass on temperament, feet, hair and beautiful toplines as well as monster front ends.  Each of our mares have been carefully researched for breeding soundness as well as show potential in their own right and each mare is carefully matched to our stallions to enhance their already fine qualities.

Here at Classic City it is our utmost wish to improve the breed by selecting impeccable mares and then improving them by way of the stallion.  A mare at Classic City is treated as the Rock Star she is.  They receive the best feed, best care and best housing money can buy.  We've often been told that people wish "they" were a Classic City Clyde!   Our mares are our foundation; without them, there would be no "US!"

SHOWING.....

  Join us in 2020 for a number of shows.  Check back as we get closer to the season.



A FEW SHOWS WE HAVE ATTENDED!


Jordan MN
Milwaukee WI
Indianapolis IN (National Clydesdale Show)
Iowa State Fair
Georgia Draft Horse Show at the Georgia National Fair (Perry, GA)

Our horses show in hand, in harness and under saddle.  The Clydesdale horse is a very versatile breed that can excel in many different disciplines from Western to English and even Dressage.  Of course each horse is an individual and suited to each discipline as he/she is put together.  When showing we try to take each horses attributes into consideration and select events that will showcase their individual talents.  We start evaluating each horse from birth based on conformation, temperament and movement.
