We want to show that we can produce horses in the States, having them on the ground as foals and bringing them up through the young horse classes.

About Descanso Farm

In 2010, after retiring her former grand prix mare, Tosca van het Lambroeck, Hannah Selleck recognized an opportunity and a need for top quality hunter/jumper sport horses produced within the United States, and Descanso Farm was born. In 2012, Tosca’s first foals were born, and since then, Selleck and Descanso Farm have been dedicated to developing young horses to the peak of their potential, with the utmost care and attention given to every step of the process.

Based in California and Florida, Descanso Farm’s young horses include those out of Tosca, out of another former mount of Selleck’s, Alvarina, and, by embryo transfer, out of Barla, Selleck’s current grand prix mount. All of Descanso Farm’s foals are U.S.-bred and by stallions standing in the U.S., including Cacique, LioCalyon, and FEI World Cup Final winner Flexible.
