From a rigorous selection process spanning over 20 years, we have purchased and breed some of the most exquisite well-bred miniature mares from around the country.  In addition, we have retained some of “Blue Carousel’s” most exquisite Arabian-type daughters to enhance our breeding program.   At this time, we are proud to introduce . . .


Crystal Ridge Carousels Fatal Beauty


Sire:  Movados FWF Blue Carousel
Dam:   Cross Country Red Boys Juliet

D.O.B. April 2008

This gorgeous Palomino filly was foaled in April 2008.  Her sire is Blue Carousel, sire of multiple AMHA World Champion miniature horses.  Her dam is a Multiple SUPREME HALTER HORSE in both Open and Amateur at AMHA shows. Her grandsires include Lazy N Red Boy, a direct offspring of the immortal ROWDY, and FWF Blues Golden Comet, a direct offspring of the Impeccable FWF Blue Boy.   This mare has the pedigree, color, conformation and attitude to win in the showring.

This senior miniature mare stands about 31-1/2 inches and is ready to show this spring!!  



Crystal Ridge Marquis Royal Flush

Sire:  Crystal Ridge Carousels Marquis
Dam:   Crystal Ridge Beaus Everlasting Love

D.O.B. 05/02/10

This miniature 2010 filly is one of the best horses we've ever produced.  She stands a mere 27" tall and already has won an AMHA SUPREME HALTER HORSE (June 2011 show)--she is REALLY that special and gorgeous!!   Her sire is our AMHA WORLD CHAMPION, "MARQUIS," and her dam is a 28" black and white pinto miniaturea mare by our Bond-bred miniature stallion.  Her dainty little dishy head, her swan-like long neck and otherwise perfect conformation makes her a one-in-a-million mini!!




Crystal Ridge All Jazzed Up


 This grey and white miniature filly is by our World Champion-producing herdsire, Blue Carousel, and out of Crystal Ridge Bewitching Melody, who was a gorgeous miniature show mare.  We expect this filly to clean up in the show ring, as she is one of our best!  Excellent conformation (with a tiny, tiny head needed to win in the show ring today), combined with great color and fancy movement gives this filly all she needs to win!!!!  "Zazzy" is a 2010 AMHA World Top Ten miniature horse, too--gorgeous and ultra-refined mare.

"Jazzy" won the prestigious 2009 NEMHS Weanling Futurity in September 2009.
Watch for her in the Show Ring in 2010!!
