Solstice Farm is committed to helping restore the critically endangered Orlov-Rostopchin
(Russian Riding Horse), originally developed as elite dressage,
jumping and hacking mounts. This breed was nearly lost during the world
wars and the Russian revolution.
To increase the gene pool, our breeding program implements and compliments the Russian strategy of recruiting outstanding individuals from breeds originally used to establish the O-R. North America is graced with excellent candidates who exemplify the O-R type. These horses and their offspring are then infused with the blood from the Russian Stud.
The goal of Solstice Farms is evolving from breeding to training and promoting the Orlov-Rostopchin at shows.
Lois Aller is the dressage trainer at Solstice Farms.
