Taproot Sport Horses is located in picturesque, Frederick County Maryland. We breed fine and proper Irish Draught cross breeds for breed sound, sane athletes to be competitive jumpers, event and first flight field hunters suited to the ambitious amateur rider. Our horses have been bred to be your ultimate partner for wherever your riding aspirations take you. We use a combination of Irish Draught with Thoroughbred and 'blood' warmbloods to create an elegant, noble horse with the aesthetic and performance of a classic Irish hunter deserving of an Alfred Munnings painting.
We sell in-utero contracts, youngstock, green and made horses. Most of our horses sell at a young age. We show our yougstock in-hand and through the jump chute at open shows against all warmblood breeds. Later, we start our youngsters both in the arena and out on the trail to prepare them for real life.
All of our mares and foals are raised with the very best care; they eat low NSC diets, have their feet trimmed regularly and maintain a managed worming/inoculation schedule.
TSH is managed by Sarah and Andrew Henry. We live on the farm with all our horses as well as 2 young children and a flock of heritage and rare breed chickens.
We are situated in the center of mid-Atlantic horse country, just a short drive to most shows in Maryland, Pennsylvania and of course Virginia. We are also very convenient to BWI and Dulles airports for easy viewing of our stallions or sale stock.
