CENTURY FARMS' ARABIAN NIGHT DANCER Pictured above at 10 year old!
...We are conscientious breeders of truly Arabian
featured miniature show horses with often
concentrated pinto genetics. We are a small, highly selective breeding
farm, where every broodmare and stallion have been selected for their
conformation, bite, way-of-motion, & natural Arabian features.
While many miniature breeders strive to produce a "strain" of miniature
Arabians, none of us have the perfect Arabian herd, producing
consistently Arabian individuals. I feel strongly that the day is not far off,
and that we have more Arabian characteristics per individual than most....and
feedback from MANY full size Arabian breeders/full size successful Arabian
trainers,some of whom have 30 plus years of experience with them, share
this opinion. We also have the nations' Top Quality Horses, as our
World Grand Champion Titles attest too.
We would be honored to place one of our horses with you!
ARABIAN FEATURES that our stallions & mares possess
and often pass on to their offspring are:
24 YEAR OLD BROODMARE PICTURED ABOVE!
...look for that triangular "slice of pie" added to where the
neck joins the head. (Arabian horses only - and extremely rare in
LONG NATURALLY THIN NECKS - it's in our genes!

THE HIGHEST OF TAILSETS
Foals by Bailey often have LONG FLAT CROUPS!!!
THIS IS 24 YEAR OLD MYSTIC LADY, A WORKING [PREGNANT!} BROODMARE FOR US FOR OVER 20 YEARS -
LOOK AT THAT TOPLINE! THAT NECK! THAT TAILSET!
LEVEL TOP -
The croup is the " line" from the top of these HIGH tailsets to the point of the swirly hair where the hip joins the barrel of the back!) Notice also, that we have some of the shortest Araby backs out there!!!... recall, TRUE Arabians have less ribs than other breeds, so these rare short backs are truly Arabian in feature!
The back length is the point of croup to the start of the withers. The withers are the "bony bump" where the neck and back join on top. If you look at many peoples' miniature broodmares, they have very long backs and very short severely sloped croups, making for lower tail sets... this is the opposite of what I breed for.
Century Farms Just ExQuizit ~
HIGH TAIL SETS ,
tails that often
... for sustained
periods of time, not just 2 minutes during a picture shoot, or with
artificial treatments of gingering - which we have NEVER done under ANY
circumstances - ours is ALL NATURAL imbedded in our genetics!!! ..... it
is said that only true Arabian blood can produce this
Pictured top left is Century Farms Crystal's Image, known to the whole industry as " OSCAR! ". Oscar is AMHA NATIONAL GRAND CHAMPION SINGLE PLEASURE DRIVING HORSE OVER ALL IN THE WORLD IN 2003!
(He is also AMHA REGIONAL CHAMPION SENIOR HALTER STALLION in his height class and SUPREME HALTER STALLION !) We have bred/raised numerous National Champion driving horses here, and continue to do so.
Our breeding consistently WIN halter and driving and liberty and jumping classes at the very top of the industry... in both registries...time and time again.
Oscar's full brother , Century Farms Bey Masquerade , known to the whole industry as "BAYLEE ! " was also bred by Century Farm. Baylee was 2003 AMHA RESERVE NATIONAL GRAND CHAMPION SINGLE PLEASURE DRIVING HORSE the year Oscar was Grand Champion.... it was AMHA's 25th anniversary! & we got the top two honors in the world at their momentous anniversary show!
What a thrill for us!!! Baylee then came back in 2004 to become the 2004 AMHA WORLD GRAND CHAMPION SINGLE PLEASURE DRIVING HORSE and multiple national and world top titles in many divisions!

Often CONCETRATED PINTO GENETICS ! But we do have horses in solid colors such as bays, blacks, chestnuts, silvers, buckskins, and others for your consideration.
EXCEPTIONAL INTELLIGENCE & NATURALLY ACTIVE, making them easy to condition, train, and handle. Because of this, I believe our genetics offers exceptionally high metabolisms. My horses have naturally thin barrels and naturally long thin necks through their genetics.
More REFINED & FINE ~BONED than most, without sacrificing strength & durability
Actual ARABIAN HIP & MUSCLING! Many mini-breeders' horses have fuller Quarter Horse type "rumps" , while this is awesome on that type of horse, and looks very nice, they do not realize that that is NOT what true Arabian breeders strive for...and incorrectly call their hip/muscling ~Arabian.
AND THEY ARE RAISED WITH LOVE
AND DAILY ATTENTION MANY TIMES A DAY !
We are extremely proud of the horses we have produced here on our breeding farm.
It has been a true labor of love for me.
My horses are loved and handled each and every day. Each horses' happiness and creature comfort is paramount to me. We clean each stall and paddock often twice a day year 'round. They are turned out much of each day into large tree-studded grass pastures, and brought into roomy, well -bedded stalls/buildings (during the heat of the day ...under fans in the summer) and again at night (year-round). Broodmares and show horses enjoy heated huge stalls in our cold winters. I stay up on each horses' vaccinations, wormings, grooming, and hoof trimmings meticulously.
Please take a moment to browse our pages to see what Century Farm has done in the last 18 years, and what we can offer to you and your breeding program or show string. Thank you for browsing our site.
Sincerely yours in the Love of miniature Arabian Style horses,
