Blackburn Foundation Quarter Horses
Welcome to Blackburn Foundation Horses website.
The Blackburn Foundation Ranch is owned and managed by myself, Lynette Leier. The ranch is located approx 40 miles SE of Minot, ND. My roots in the horse business
run deep - back several generations. My grandparents used foundation horses, utilizing the Blackburn lineage that Harold Schaefer brought up from Texas with own daughters
of Blackburn. Relatives of mine help haul those mares up from Texas, and worked on the original Blackburn ranch in Bismarck, ND.
My stallion, Mr Blackburn 946 is a double bred Mr Blackburn 40, AQHA Champion, sire of AQHA
Champions, ROMS, Superior Perf Awards, & NRHA money earners. My broodmare band is Blackburn, Poco Bueno, & Pretty Buck. Most of the mares go back
through Perty Buck Poco X Mr Blackburn 41 X Pretty Buck. Mr Blackburn 41's get earned 142 AQHA PTs, ROMS, Show Perf Awards, and NRHA money earners of $5665.
Offering historically proven genetic bloodlines & pretty color as a bonus. My program is built on Performance, Foundation, & Heart. My goal in breeding these
Blackburn horses, is to produce foals that have conformation, disposition, speed, ability, & versatility, with good trainable minds, good arena prospects, all-around ranch
horses, or family riding horses. My family has used these horses in Rodeo, AQHA Shows, 4-H, Ranch Horse Competitons, Open Shows, Trail Riding, & on cattle.
BLACKBURN #2228 is still listed as #5 of the All-Time Leading Broodmare Sires of AQHA Champions. This is quite a feat considering that BLACKBURN was foaled in
1927. POCO BUENO sired 36 AQHA champions, 18 of which are from daughters or granddaughters of BLACKBURN. POCO BUENO is listed as #3 of All-Time Leading
Sires of AQHA Champions. All Horses Herda N/N.
