Pennwoods Percherons, established in 1972, by John and Susan Cole, is situated in the scenic Allegheny Mountains of central Pennsylvania. Presently, the farm is managed and operated by Chad and Rhonda Cole.

Our farm is home to approximately 60 registered Percheron horses and we boast one of the finest breeding programs in the world. Several top quality stallions stand for service here at Pennwoods, where we specialize in shipped chilled semen and artificial insemination.

Our involvement in the Percheron industry began with pleasure horses and a small breeding herd, moving to geldings and competitive hitching through the 1980’s and part of the of 90’s. In 1995, we sold our gelding hitch and began competing with registered mares. It was then that our breeding operation began expanding into the successful business of today.

Each year we assemble a new group of young females to train and campaign on the show circuit, with the current World Champion Mare Six Horse Hitch standing in our barn.

Aside from breeding and showing, we have been very successful in marketing top quality Percheron stock, with horses being sold all across the United States (including Hawaii), to Canada, France, Colombia and the United Arab Emirates. Along with these countries, we are proud of the fact that offspring from our stallions are being used for breeding foundation in Australia, Great Britain and Italy.

Whether it be our breeding stallions, brood mares or show stock, we pride ourselves on our attention to quality and our service to our customers. We are truly dedicated to the Percheron horse and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to make a mark in the breed’s history.We invite you to browse through our site and if we can assist you in any way with your draft horse needs, feel free to contact us.
