Epiphany Bay Farm was established in 2005 with the purpose of breeding the endangered Cleveland
Bay Horse. Currently, the farm is home to nine purebred Cleveland Bays, two Cleveland x
Thoroughbred sport horses and one Thoroughbred. Three of the purebred Cleveland Bays are Quality
We have developed and are constantly in the process of developing our line of purebred mares. As we
do not stand a stallion, each breeding season we make breeding decisions based on each mare's
qualities and the qualities of the purebred Cleveland Bay stallions which are available for breeding. We
support the SPARKS program which is provided by the Cleveland Bay Horse Society to reduce the rate
of inbreeding. Currently, purebred Cleveland Bay Horses remain a critically endangered heritage breed
with the worldwide number of active adult breeding mares between 100 and 300 according to the The
Livestock Conservancy. The total number of purebred Cleveland Bay Horses is currently, just below 900
in the world with slightly less than 200 purebreds in the United States. Despite their low numbers,
Cleveland Bay Horses are quite versatile with successes in eventing, fox hunting, driving, dressage and
jumping. Cleveland Bay Horses are known for their steady temperament and solid bone conformation.
They are often crossed with other breeds, primarily Thoroughbreds, to produce the Cleveland Bay Sport
All of our Cleveland Bays, both purebred and partbred are registered with the Cleveland Bay Horse
Society which holds the purebred Stud Book for the breed. It is imperative that all purebreds be
registered with the Stud Book, not only to provide a record of the purebred, yet more importantly to
maintain genetic diversity through accountability of the entire purebred population.
Currently, we have two purebred colts, who are yearlings, available to the right home. In May of 2017
EB Abigail presented us with a healthy filly, who is a 3/4 Cleveland Bay 1/4 Thoroughbred.
Unfortunately, the purebred foal which was expected for 2017 was lost in a late-term abortion due to a
twisted umbilical cord.
Both mares for our 2018 foals have been bred. Foals will be available through a pre-foaling agreement.
