About Greengate Farm LLC
Established by Warren and Rachel Ehrlich in 1989, Greengate Farm is focused exclusively on the breeding and sales of premium quality warmblood sport horses. Our breeding program is based on top Hanoverian bloodlines from Germany, a natural development from the great love of the mares that came to reside at Greengate.
Greengate also maintains a small breeding operation in Germany through a longstanding relationship with The Hof Bruening Family , a premier breeding farm located near Verden in the heart of the Hanoverian breeding area. Private Tours for education and Horse purchase can be arranged upon request.
Our focus on quality, not quantity, has resulted in numerous national Year-end Awards from the USDF and USEF, including “Dressage Breeder of the Year” and “Reserve USDF Sporhorse Breeder” , as well as Breed Association awards from Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Rheinland Pfalz Saar, and AWS.
Greengate is located in the tranquil agricultural community of New Braintree, Massachusetts. The main farm houses the mare foaling and breeding barn, which includes 12 spacious stalls for sales and training horses. The barn is ideally set up to allow separate sand/clay paddocks for horses, with gated access to grass areas. Much of our 20 acres consists of large fields equipped with 12’×24’ loafing sheds for the horses’ comfort when out on pasture and safe accomodation for mare& foal grazing. Fencing is 3 rail Oak board or horse safe, no climb mesh. The farm also includes an additional 50-acre parcel with lush fields and forest trails, available for grazing and layup.
The main house includes guest accommodations for clients visiting their horses and an apartment for apprentices working with the young horses.
