If you are purchasing a pony, looking for advice in choosing a sire for your mare, or needing assistance purchasing frozen semen from a pony stallion standing as far away as New Zealand or Europe – well, then it’s nice to know something about the people you are putting your trust in and doing business with. So, this is an introduction to me, my family, our farm, and the history of our farm and how we developed into the leading breeder of German Riding Ponies in the United States. If you get tired of reading the text, then I hope you enjoy the pictures!

I am Dianna Orona, and along with my husband, Chuck, and our three children: Cody, Charlie, Conner………….

We welcome you to Fox Creek Farm!!!

Just a little about me. I am the classic horse crazy little girl who didn’t get what she wanted until she was an adult! So cliche! And, I wasn’t just horse crazy – I was crazy about critters in general! I graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Animal Science. From the beginning, reproduction and genetics classes were my favorites. To this day, the process of reproduction and genetics absolutely fascinates me.

Chuck and I met at Kansas State University. We married and graduated in 1998. In 2000, Fox Creek Farm was established with the purchase of 240 acres of land just 5 miles from Manhattan, Kansas. It was a horse and critter crazy little girls dream come true! Our farm consists of acres of diverse landscape, including farm land, brome grass hay fields, forested hills and stretches of native prairie grass. The farm is dissected by a seasonal creek. In the first year at our new farm a cute family of foxes had their kits in a burrow in the dry creek and thus we christened our new farm: Fox Creek Farm.

I envisioned the development of an equestrian center. We developed a plan to build a facility that would enable the training of both horses and riders, accommodate events, and make room for a fledgling breeding program. As fate would have it, Kansas State University was in the process of forming their first NCAA Equestrian Team. We presented our plan to the Athletic Department at Kansas State University, and in 2001 the new Kansas State University Equestrian Team made Fox Creek Farm their home. The facilities include a 130′ X 240′ outdoor riding arena, a 70′ round pen, the main building is 120′ X 300′ and houses a 120′ X 200′ indoor riding arena, 3 indoor wash racks, 5 cross tie areas for tacking up and grooming, 23 stalls, 2 large tack rooms, bleachers, a laboratory, breeding stocks, and stallion collection area with phantom.

For the next 10 years our farm was the training center for the Kansas State University Equestrian Team. We hosted many events such as the NCAA Regional Championship Finals, many FFA Horse Judging Team events including the State Championships. Many local 4-H Horse Judging practices, Ft. Riley Military Honor Guard practices, and horse shows for the Kansas Hunter/Jumper Association have been held at Fox Creek Farm. We have had the honor of stabling the Lippizzanner Stallions as they tour across the country. Most recently, we were the site of a large (and very fun) circus themed Mardi Gras Party. Currently, we are the Kansas site for the Rhineland Pfalz-Saar International Inspection Tour.

In 2010, the Kansas State University Equestrian Team moved to their own facility and Fox Creek Farm was able to return to a quiet, private farm. This enabled us to expand our breeding facilities and focus exclusively on our breeding program.

It was a trip to Germany 13 years ago that inspired my interest in the German Riding Pony. I had originally traveled to Germany to learn about the Warmblood; instead, I became enamored with the German Riding Ponies that I saw on my trip. I came home determined to breed the German Riding Pony – the Warmblood in pony size – I was in LOVE! With the knowledge that the success of any breeding program is based on the quality of the mares, the decision was made to begin importing the best German Riding Pony mares I could find. Over the course of the next 13 years I have made many trips to Germany to study and learn about German Riding Ponies. To date I have imported 12 mares, 8 of which have achieved the States Premium title. There is no other German Riding Pony breeding program in North America that has the depth and quality of imported German Riding Pony mares. Our mares represent a wide variety of important German Riding Pony bloodlines. From current and popular bloodlines to foundation lines that established the German Riding Pony. My breeding focus is not to produce one nice “end product” pony. Rather, my approach is “generational”, a true “breeding program”, with a solid vision for the correct size, type, conformation, movement and character that was the intention for the breeding of true German Riding Ponies.

We currently stand 7 pony stallions at stud on our farm. We will be forever grateful to Nancy and Spencer Ferebee for entrusting the care and future of their beloved “boys”: Fs Daily Hero, Benno’s Dream, and Chicco B to our family at Fox Creek Farm. We have been additionally blessed with the confidence of Prue Richardson of Northwind Farm in Canada with the lease of her exceptional stallion, Devon Grand Champion, Northwind Catcall. Mrs. Delores Seketa from Indiana entrusted the care of her imported colt to us, asking us to raise, train and prepare him for the Stallion Performance Test and competition. We were thrilled to watch Mrs. Seketa receive the Champion Ribbon at the Stallion Performance Test for her outstanding pony stallion Adonis.

In the course of developing our breeding program we recognized the need of North American pony breeders to have improved access to European pony genetics. As a result, we specialize in the importation and distribution of PONY Frozen Semen. Our offerings have expanded from 2 stallions to over 20 stallions. During our many trips to Germany a friendship was formed with the Coldewey Family of the Kastanienhof Stud. We were very honored to be asked to exclusively represent their stallions, Kennedy and Halifax in North America. (Kennedy is now owned by the Rose Glen Farm in Australia). Most recently, we have been honored to be asked to exclusively represent the highly decorated German Riding Pony, Davidoff. Many thanks to Marion Rogerson for this honor. Our frozen semen is stored and professionally maintained in two large, private tanks at the Kansas State University Breeding Services Unit.

We have been blessed to have met many wonderful people through our love of the ponies. Many of these friends continue to work with us and our ponies:

Elaine (Lanie) Wagner is an amazing young woman. She graduated from Kansas State University with a 4.0, Summa Cum Laude, Dean’s List, and probably a few other honors she hasn’t told me about – all while riding and starting our young horses. Lanie has a special affinity for youngsters and is just incredibly talented at starting the young horses.

Jill Hardt is one of the hardest working equestrian professionals I’ve ever met – a tough as nails woman who has attained the highest of honors – the USDF Gold Medal.

Over the years both our farm and our family has grown. We have added many treasured friends to our family. Various critters, from dogs and cats, chickens and ducks, a pretentious and demanding goat, and of course the ponies. These wonderful people and creatures have blessed and enriched our lives and have brought us many, many special moments and memories that are priceless. We would like to invite YOU to become part of our family too!
