Conformation is a key component to our breeding program. Our mares are expertly selected not only on their performance but their conformation and disposition. A properly conformed horse will withstand the test of time no matter the sport.


Quality is the driving force behind Mellema Thoroughbreds. Our horses are bred to be high quality to ensure performance and investment value.


We spend hours researching bloodlines, nicks, potential crosses and racing results to ensure that the horses we produce will excel on the track or in the show ring.


We are committed to each and every one of our horses. We strongly believe in Thoroughbred aftercare to ensure long and healthy lives after racing.
