Sonesta Farms is located in Cypress, Texas, just 26 miles northwest of downtown Houston.  We offer breeding, training, showing and sales of warmblood sport horses, including Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Danish Knabstrupper and Arabians for hunter/jumper, dressage and eventing. Specializing in the adult beginning rider, we offer riding instruction on your horse or ours. Instruction is offered in dressage from beginners through Grand Prix. We regularly offer clinics from top dressage clinicians and began holding a series of dressage schooling shows in 2010. Until 2015, we offered the unique service of allowing you to custom make your own foal using one of our quality broodmares and breeding her to any stallion in the world. You could be here for your foal's birth or watch it live online on our foal cams. We retired from breeding in 2016, but our site still has lots of information about the horses we produced over the years. Check out our pages on facilities, breeding, training and sales for more information.

Our website is HUGE.  The main pages are listed below.

He was always a gentleman and gave everything he had to whatever we asked of him. There will truly never be another horse like him. We will miss him forever.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed."
