Welcome to Top Hat Equine, Inc.
Home of Barock Pinto Stallion Picasso's Masterpiece, his grandson Otro Armani who is homozygous tobiano, and GFS Mikado, a rare double dilute tobiano warmblood.
Top Hat Equine, Inc. is the culmination of years of hard work and our passion for unique horses. We are located in South Florida and started breeding and showing Friesians in 2006 as Top Hat Friesians. In 2009 we expanded into Barock Pintos (Friesian x Warmblood) when we imported our stallion, Picasso’s Masterpiece. Over the years we have been successful in producing quality horses with excellent temperaments and outstanding confirmation that have the “in your pocket” personality of the Friesian and the athletic ability of the Warmblood.
In 2019 we imported Warmbloods with very unique, top proven European bloodlines carefully chosen and bred by Tania Mackee, owner of GFS Sporthorses in the UK. These are horses that are bred to excel in all three of the top disciplines (Dressage, Showjumping, and Eventing) through their excellent movement, confirmation, and athletic ability, and are also flashy, unique, and rare in their colorings of Cremello, Perlino, Buckskin, Palomino, and Leopard Spot coat patterns from the Knapstrupper Warmbloods in their bloodlines. We were very excited to bring Tania’s exceptional bloodlines to the United States, including two AES Stallion Candidates. However, due to changes in our lives, we semi retired from breeding and are reducing our herd back down to just a few Barock Pintos.
Thanks for visiting and we look forward to sharing our love of rare and special equine athletes with you! Our old website is still functional and you can visit us there at http://TopHatFriesians.com
