Miguel Coves and Dorothea Darden founded Coves Darden P.R.E. in Alicante, Spain.

Miguel Coves was born and raised in Spain. As a Spanish native his involvement and understanding of the P.R.E as a breed is culturally simply a part of him. Dorothea Darden was born in the USA and raised in both the US and in Germany. Dorothea is passionate about dressage and also comes from a family who’s involvement with horses and breeding spans several generations.

Horse Import

In 2008, breeding operations were relocated to South Carolina where Coves Darden – USA was established.  Over 50 Pura Raza Española P.R.E. horses have been imported from Spain since then.  Today Coves Darden Farm produces up to twenty foals per year, many out of it’s ample herd of Qualified  brood mares both via Embryo transfers and direct breeds. These young horses are coming of age and will be seen competing in recognized shows in the years to come. Coves Darden stallions provide stud services at flat rate prices to all eligible mares regardless of their breed.
