About Honeysuckle Rose North and HRN Select Sales
Welcome to Honeysuckle Rose North, the home of the Mitchell Family. We are pleased you dropped by to visit us and would like to take a few moments to introduce ourselves and the surrounding area.
In 1999, We purchased our first Arabian mare, Jaysseen (Jassen X Baskkasaara), while living in Idaho. We started our program in 2001 with one mare, S S Heiress (Amurath Baikal X Lainy Shahzana). She gave us five fillies and one colt. Two of her daughters, by the sire and grandsire of World Champions, *Ecaho, were exported to the Middle East. These daughters were Elita HRN (2005, owned by Al Saqran Stud) and Eava HRN (2006, exported to Saudi Arabia). In 2013, Elita HRN produced a stunning filly for us. Marwlyssa HRN (by *ZT Marwteyn) was exported to the UAE and is owned by Al Khazna Stud. Arabians we have owned or bred have been sold in the USA, Europe, and the Middle East.
In 2001 Amanda started assisting clients with the marketing of their horses. This blossomed over time to exclusively marketing purebred Arabian Bloodstock. Amanda was the first person to sell Arabian horses to the country of Jordan after they opened their boarders for imports and has sold three shipments of Arabian horses to China to assist in their re-introduction of Arabian horses. Horses marketed and sold through Honeysuckle Rose North Select Sales can be found in North America, Eastern/Western Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. We have an Arabian Horse on almost every continent!
In 2016 Honeysuckle Rose North started transitioning to a more "pleasure-type" facility and away from the competitive nature of the Arabian Horse industry. We bred our finest Thoroughbred mare, Sunrise At Six, to an Irish Draught stallion to produce an Irish Sport Horse foal. This filly was born in 2017 and we decided that this was a direction we wanted to pursue. With two young daughters and a growing interest in the Irish Sport Horse and Fox Hunting industries, we sold our last Arabian mare, the last full sister - Eira HRN (*Ecaho X S S Heiress). We retained a breeding right for future use but our vision is now one of modest enjoyment and producing an Irish Sport Horse foal from year to year.
Honeysuckle Rose North was founded in Pittsfield, MA in 2001. We moved Honeysuckle Rose North from the Berkshires of Massachusetts to the town of Troy, New Hampshire in 2008. Troy, New Hampshire is a quaint New England town nestled at the base of beautiful Mount Monadnock in unspoiled Southwestern New Hampshire. Troy offers all the charms of a small, self-sufficient New England community, with exceptional opportunities for recreation; including hiking, climbing, biking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, hunting, fishing, and much more. Troy is just two hours from Boston in the heart of the Monadnock Region.
~ Cheers and Best Wishes,
Andrew and Amanda Mitchell
