OAKHAVEN PARTNERS LTD. was founded by Debbie & Willy Graves in 1998.
At that time they were showing hunters and jumpers nationally with their daughters Laura and Amy. Their focus then shifted to breeding the finest Holsteiner and Oldenburg horses for competition and pleasure and in 1999 their first foal crop arrived.
Oakhaven strives to keep their horses at the top level of health and fitness, both crucial to achieving the performance needed in competition....

The Oakhaven Team is sensitive to each horses' individual dietary needs and a variety of supplements including
Blue-Green Algae, EquiPride, Succeed, and Empower are fed. They have adopted Dr. Ward's holistic approach to horse care, which stresses good nutrition and building the horses' natural immune systems, and the results are incredible!
Oakhaven babies grow up healthy and strong, ready for the physical demands of being show horses. Once horses are in training, routine body work (Bowen treatments, Cranio-Sacral, acupuncture / acupressure, chiropractic, and massage work) keeps the horses pain-free and enjoying their jobs.
In addition to physical health, consideration is taken with the personalities of each horse when matching them to a rider and owner. This helps to achieve a successful partnership between horse and rider.
