At Clydesdale Outpost at Far Forest Ranch our passion is breeding world-class Clydesdale Horses. Breeding began in Fernwald, Germany (Fernwald means Far Forest in German).

It all started in 1995 in Fernwald, Germany when Benjamin Arnold and his father Karl Arnold bought their first horses: Princess, Dylan and Royal… all Shire horses.

In 2009 Benjamin visited the American National Clydesdale Show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Soon after he purchased two Clydesdales, Impression and Belle, phillies from Texas and one Clydesdale Stallion Thunder from Ontario, Canada and flew them to Fernwald, Germany, about 45 minutes North of Frankfurt. Their hobby had transformed into importing horses from America and developing award-winning bloodlines, and Karl's favorite, driving their carriage through town.

Benjamin Arnold met Matt Ladensack in 2013 and decided to immigrate to America when they were married. Together they began to build their dream of owning their own farm and continuing Far Forest’s traditions in Washington State. They renovated a 100-year-old homestead, build a new barn and cabins at this Amboy, WA property.

In 2015 Benjamin and Matt Arnold-Ladensack launched their breeding in the USA and began a showing career in North America. The Far Forest Clydesdale breeding operation is based on some of the original horse bloodlines that were imported from the USA/Canada to Germany and now back to the USA.
