And The Beat Goes On

Bud was a once and a lifetime horse.  He will always be missed.

Bred by Jim and Tracy Hangley, and trained during his show career by Bob Hughes and Rock Walker, Bud was a once in a lifetime Morgan.  In 1998 we watched him win his first class, the Three Year Old Park Harness, at the Morgan Medallion.  Bud exploded into the show world that day, and went on to win the World Champion Futurity Park Harness Three Year Old and the World Champion Park Harness Three Year Old. In 1999 he won the Amateur Park Harness as a four year old.  He went on to win nearly every park harness class he showed in.

To us, he was always the gangly, beautiful, superbly athletic goofball who would relax his way through warmups, then dazzle under the lights in the ring with an audience watching him.  He loved the crowd in the show ring, and in retirement he loved people watching him trot and flag his tail through his paddock.  A true Morgan show horse in every sense. Bud lives on through his progeny.


Beethoven’s progeny have amassed many World Championships. He has been a proven producer of world champions in nearly every division in Oklahoma from multi-world champion Dragonsmeade CarnegieHall, RJMF Symphonic Music, Dragonsmeade Virtuoso, and Dragonsmeade Bravura in the English Pleasure, Pleasure Driving and In-Hand divisions, to Dragonsmeade Crescendo in the Hunter division. Beethoven’s daughters, such as Dragonsmeade Aria, have proven to be gems in the breeding shed when crossed to a variety of stallions.  He is terribly missed, but his blood lives on through his offspring in our fields.


This magnificent stallion is by Beethoven and out of the dam of Simply Maserati. Bocelli has left a very important mark on the Morgan breed and have bred our best mares to him, and in return, we have his daughters now having beautiful foals. His daughters immediately became some of our best brood mares on our farm.  He is enjoying retired stud life at our farm.

Dragonsmeade Axios

Along with his half brother, Icon,  Axios may be one of the best stallions we’ve bred. By multi World Champion And The Beat Goes On and out of multi World Champion HVK Obisidian, Axios is a dream cross. While in training with Tim Roesink he went on to win world championships and regional championshops in park harness, park saddle, and in the pleasure division during his show career.  We have bred him to most of our top foundation brood mares.  This big stallion is extremely upheaded and has a dynamic park trot reminiscent of his sire And The Beat Goes On and his maternal grandsire HVK Bell Flaire.  2010 marked the year for his first foal crop, and his offspring are exotic and very upheaded.  Not only was he a dynamic show horse, Axios is a proven to be an amazing sire.

Dragonsmeade Griffin

At only three years old now, Griffin, starting his world championship show career after winning the Futurity and age group in-hand classes in 2021.  He followed up in 2022 winning the two year old Futurity world championships in park harness and in-hand.  We also bred Griffin to a select few of our mares in 2023.  We are excited for those who chose Griffin as the stud to cross to the mares in our 2023 mare lease program.  We are excited for Griffin’s future!

Dragonsmeade Icon

Once and a lifetime horse… he is forever missed.

Dragonsmeade Invictus

When one sees George it is clear he is the son of Dragonsmeade Icon.  He is smooth and curvy, yet he also has refined the bone all of BHOF HVK Obsidian’s progeny have.  Unfortunately, since George was injured as a yearling he was unable to show.  We are grateful he will remain on our farm living a happy life as a breeding stallion.  We are excited to see his get in 2024!

Dragonsmeade Skyfall

Skyfall is our first Spectre foal born at the farm!  We are thrilled with this exotic colt out of Dragonsmeade Sea Dragon’s oldest full sister, our beautiful Dragonsmeade Sweet Emotion.  He is doing well in training with Tim, and we are sure he has a successful show career in the near future!  Skyfall won his first WC in his debut class at 2022 Grand Nationals!  We are so excited for Hunter and Spencer Pilot!

Dragonsmeade Spectre

Spectre, or better known in our family as Cat, is one of the best colts we’ve bred! Starting at the age of two, Spectre, won consecutive world champion age group pleasure driving classes through to his four year old year!  He has springy motion off both ends, and he has the look of his multi-world champion sire, Dragonsmeade Icon. It is clear after his first three breeding seasons he has proven to be a dynamic sire.  His first colt to show, Dragonsmeade Skyfall, won the two year old pleasure driving Futurity championship in 2022.  There are several outside foals by him on the ground too.  We thank those breeders for believing in him and his pedigree!
