Solstice Farms was established over 20 years ago with the purpose of helping to reconstruct the nearly extinct Orlov-Rostopchin breed from Russia, also known as the Russian Riding Horse or Russian Warmblood.  Survivors of World War II were crossed with Arabians, Ukrainians, and Anglo-Hungarians at the Starozhilovsky Stud near Moscow.  In the 1990s, some of the Elite stallions were imported to the U.S.  I bought the imported IZKUSNIK, who served as my foundation stallion.  Breeding today are his grandchildren with Arabians, OTTBs, Oldenburgs and Trakehners.

You are courteously invited to visit the farm to be charmed by BORIS, currently standing at stud, a 2004 Orlov-Rostopchin, 16.2hh solid black with impeccable manners and elegance, and all his WEANLING FOALS FOR SALE.

We have a variety of horses for sale, soon to be posted, all ages and colors, all of the SPORTHORSE TYPE, for dressage, jumping, hunter, endurance, trail riding, and pleasure.

Visit for information about the breed, the history, famous O-Rs and Olympian O-Rs, breeders, and registration information.
