Selection from top bloodlines across the United States

Cross Performance Horses is a horse farm located near the beautiful Mississippi River in Camanche, Iowa owned by Mark and Lori Cross.

Each one of our horses has been carefully selected from the top bloodlines across the United States. We breed strategically to ensure these bloodlines produce heathly, sound foals that are sure to be born performers. As a result our herd has a genetic foundation that the horse world can truly be proud of.

Our horses are fed top quality feed and receive top quality care. All of our horses have been raised outdoors braving the elements from the scorching heat and humidity of an Iowa summer to the bitter cold of an Iowa winter giving them a sturdy foundation for the future.


The knowledgeable and caring team that makes up Cross Performance Horses has committed themselves to the farm and the horses, working together to reach and exceed our goals.
