The Horse Fair, 1853-1855 Rosa Bonheur

 

 

Welcome to MarKim Farms, a breeder of modern World Class Champion Oldenburg Sport Horses.  We are very selective in our breeding program.  Our commitment is to improve the breed both in temperament and athletic ability . . .  and we do it selectively . . . one at a time.

We base our breeding program on the most elite European bloodlines . . . The "Magic Trio" of modern dressage breeding:

Because we believe bloodlines are one of the most important breeding considerations, we have focused our efforts on these three foundation sires.  Our current broodmares are direct daughters of Weltmeyer and Rubinstein I.  We breed them to the best modern sires in the world today, incorporating Sandro Hit and other current successful stallions that are highly compatible with these worldclass foundation bloodlines. 

MarKim Farms' breeding program has produced Champions who have captured several USDF National Awards, including Champion All Breeds Oldenburg Colt in the Nation & Reserve Champion Horse of the Year, Sport Horse Colt.

We are proud of our successes:

A number of  musical excerpts are played on the zither, a fascinating instrument made famous by the Third Man movie.

The zither is popular in Bavaria and Austria.  I hope you enjoy it.
