We put a lot of time and effort developing these green and often wild horses into well mannered, level headed, faithfully responsive saddle horses. This requires nurturing a relationship with the horse and our goal is to match the horse to the rider. Horses are about as unique as people; thank goodness cause all people want something special!

  7. Reg. Flashy Overo Paint Trail Mare
    Reg. Flashy Overo Paint Trail Mare
    SOLD- This horse is very light in the reins and rides off your seat and legs. She can be ridden in a halter or side pull but is now ridden in a snaffle. She is a forward traveler at all gaits, but is not hard to hold back from the group (or slow down). She is remarkably not spooky on the trails and has a great fast walk and a fun steady slow canter. Fancy will jump solidly anything on the trail; FUN! (she will also slow down and step over if you ask). She has been one of the most responsive horses I have trained. It was not hard to teach her to yield her for-quarters, yield her hind-quarters, spin, side-pass, shoulder in half-pass, break at the poll and flex vertically to back deeply. If you want a horse that you can use all the buttons and do cool stuff, Fancy is the girl for you! She could go any direction you ask her; western pleasure, dressage, barrels, or just a well behaved responsive trail horse. She is used to children, traffic, dogs, farm equipment, and other various animals. She has been in active use, single and in groups, both at our home place and out on challenging all day group rides. Trained right the slow way using natural horsemanship techniques, she has a strong foundation in relationship, desensitizing, and respect; excellent ground manners! Fancy (as we call her) loads, ties, bathes (loves them), stands to be mounted, rides double, fine for the farrier, is not "mare-ish", gets along with other horse both on the trail and in the herd. Fancy is 5 years old 15.1 hands, very conformation correct and a real eye catcher! She is solid show bred having the Conclusive and Tin Man lines in her (see her papers).
  8. Katness BLM Mustang
    Katness BLM Mustang
    SOLD This pretty little mare is built like an Arab and 14.1 hands tall. She was adopted fall 2015 and will be finished 2017. If you are interested is training your own Mustang you may purchase her early at an appropriate price. She is 6 years old and is great health.
We raise cowboys; marksmen on the range.
