Iron Spring Farm’s Sir Sinclair, Keur, is the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) #1 Sire of Dressage Horses for the sixth year in a row (2015-2020).
Even in this unusual time, Sir’s impressive offspring had winning show seasons, with 39 point-earning sons and daughters receiving more than 6,000 points. At the GAIG/USDF Regional Championships, they won seven championships and reserve championships, along with 13 top-eight finishes.
“Each year we see Sir’s offspring mature into seasoned FEI and Grand Prix horses,” said Meghan de Garay, breeding manager at Iron Spring Farm. “It’s wonderful to see so many people have success with his offspring.”
