Learn A little more about us...

Mark Baus of Baus Horses is the head trainer and manager for 5A Farms equine division. 5A Farms is based out of Millwaukee, WI. The equine operation currently works out of thier farm located in Stillwater, MN. A beautiful 80 acre farm has recently been purchased (July 2017) to move the operation closer to 5A Farm's home base. We're looking forward to the move and the excitement of of building a new 32 stall state of the art barn!

Mark specializes in the development of young horses and bringing them into the western pleasure show areana. He concentrates on equiping them with the knowledge it takes to have a successful show career, be it in the open, amateur or youth divisions. Many will go on to have solid show careers in western pleasure and all around events at the national level.


The breeding program at 5A Farms has been centered around their 5x APHA World Champion stallion, Fleet Machine. Fleet has retired from the breeding shed at the age of 26. There will be a few select mares bred in the future using frozen semen. Fleet Machine has produced multiple World & Reserve World Champions in Western Pleasure, Hunter Under Saddle, Trail, Horsemanship, Equitation & even Hunter Hack! He is the sire of the Breyer Horse model Fleetstreet Max who set the APHA World Record for World Championships won by a single paint horse.

We always have a nice selection of APHA & AQHA prospects & show horses available for purchase and would love the opportunity to offer you, guide you, or find you your first or next show partner.
