Mira’s Story

Mira was born in the Netherlands and raised in a young jumper program by her breeder. She came from a successful line of show jumping horses and competed successfully in Holland. Her half brother, Hamlet, was one of the most successful jumping horses of this decade.

Mira was sold by her breeder to another farm in Holland who imported her to the United States. In the US she competed on the A circuit in both hunters and jumpers. After competing for several years, she was purchased by our sister farm, Eclipse Sporthorses LLC, as a broodmare to add her prestigious bloodlines to our breeding program. Mira had a lovely filly in 2011 who is being raised on our other farm just outside of Gainesville. Due to her late foaling date in 2011, we decided to skip a year breeding her and have her join our riding program at Haile Equestrian in the meantime. Mira had a foal named “Ichabod” in 2013 and is due to have another foal in the spring of 2014.
