About Us

New Blessing Farm was established in February 2006 and the farm's concept is based mostly on the vision of Karen's late mother Norma Severns.  Her dream was always to raise young horses on her farm with her family around her.  Norma's own Blessings Farm in Calvert County Maryland was the early foundation for the plan that eventually became New Blessing Farm.  We share Norma's focus on breeding quality youngsters with temperaments suitable for amateurs, but who are talented enough for the professional.  Our youngsters are handled extensively and compete regularly in the breeding divisions.  While we breed primarily for the hunter/jumper rings, we do produce some babies that go on to dressage and eventing homes and they are showing great promise for those disciplines as well.  We also board horses and pride ourselves on a uniquely friendly, positive, and fun environment.
