We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our farm. It is our pleasure and honor to be associated with this outstanding breed. We started raising Haflingers as a retirement hobby never expecting to have our lives changed so favorably by this wonderful breed.
Our goal here at Chestnut Ridge is to provide a safe well trained Haflinger mare for the entire family . We raise, train, buy and sell quality Haflinger mares with this goal in mind. Chestnut Ridge Haflingers are proud members of the AHR .
Haflingers — The Native Horse of Austria
Whether you are looking for a safe family horse, a hunter jumper or a dressage horse, this wonderful breed can do it all. A native bred horse in the mountains of Austria where one horse had to fill all the families needs, their versatility was invaluable. The Haflingers as a breed are stout enough for adults but gentle enough for a child to handle. They are easy keepers, healthy, hardy and wonderfully long lived .
If you do not see the Haflinger you are looking for on our website please contact us and we will be happy to assist you in finding the perfect match for you . We strive to place the right Haflinger in the right home .

We also raise Australian Shepherds and as with the Haflingers, a good family pet is what we breed for. Temperament is a must.
We have found the Aussies to be great family dogs. They are great with kids, very intelligent loving and loyal. Aussies get along great with other animals and make excellent watch dogs without being overly aggressive.
