March, 2015

Welcome to NPF!
New Perth Farms is one of Canada's premier breeder of Dutch Warmblood horses. Located in the lush rolling hills of Prince Edward Island, New Perth Farm's goal is to breed upper level quality warmblood horses with amateur friendly temperaments.

Vuzarma - champion at keuring.
In this first of our regular newsletters we will feature our foundation mare Vuzarma (known as Charlie around the barn). Purchased as a filly in our first buying trip to the Netherlands in 2003, she is from a Purioso mare and her sire is Hamlet.

Vuzarma was awarded ster mare status with KWPN-NA where she was also Champion Jumper at the New England keuring. These breed awards reflects her correct conformation and jumping ability. Click here for video from her KWPN keuring where she was awarded Champion 3 year old Jumper  She was uncomplicated to start under saddle as a 3 year old and has been a full time broodmare since 3 years of age.  She has 7 foals on the ground, all by frozen semen from stallions that are competing or have competed at the international level at Grand Prix show jumping.
