Gladheart Farm is a small, family program located in the Soap Creek Valley about 7 miles north of Corvallis, Oregon. We strive to produce Morgans having classic type, plus the athleticism and trainability to shine in the sport disciplines.
Our program blends the traditional Brunk, Old Government, and Working Western lines—all bloodlines that have consistently produced exceptional Morgan athletes. The stallions we choose are individuals who have excelled in sport disciplines that have included dressage, reining, eventing and combined driving or are individuals from bloodlines that have consistently produced quality Morgan sporthorses. Although a small and relatively young program, using these guidelines we have already produced horses that have been successfully competed in open dressage competition. We strongly believe that Morgans can excel at dressage and other sport disciplines at the highest levels.
Along with its natural beauty, the Soap Creek Valley boasts a rich and colorful history. It was one of the first areas settled in this part of Oregon. In recognition, our stallion, Gladheart Black Harris, takes his name from the famous Mountain Man, Moses "Black" Harris, who guided wagon trains over the Oregon Trail and brought pioneers to this area.
