Matt & Benjamin Story

Here at Clydesdale Outpost our passion is breeding world-class Clydesdale Horses. The humble operation began in Fernwald, Germany (Fernwald means Far Forest in German) which has become our farm name, Far Forest Ranch.

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

Over a decade later, in 2009, Benjamin visited the American National Clydesdale Show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Soon after he purchased two Clydesdales, Impression and Belle, fillies 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, built 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.

Benjamin and Matt sold their 8-acre ranch in 2021 and moved from in Amboy, Washington and to Whitefish, Montana in efforts to build out a larger Clydesdale Outpost. They also foaled two new family members, Marga out of Rain and Joan, Isabelle’s first foal.

Matt and Benjamin are excited to launch Clydesdale Outpost | Whitefish and share their horses with you and the world.
