Varvel Sporthorses is based just south of Bloomington, Indiana. We have a focus on finding talented young horses for reasonable prices. Traditionally competing Morgan horses we pursue a number of traits in our young sport horses, such as trainability, talent, beauty, and presence. A few years ago we came across the Dutch Harness horse and found they possess all these traits and more. No large surprise as many Grand Prix dressage horses posses these bloodlines includin Verdades and Tarpan Ymas. Dutch Harness horses are many times registered KWPN and come thru older Gelderlander lines prevalent in many "dressage" bred KWPN horses. They offer engagement with lofty amazing movement and large jumping canters combined with wonderful people oriented dispositions, athleticism and high intelligence. A great fit for sport horses in packages which are often attractive, with lots of chrome.
