...developing willing partners...
Sales ~ Current & Past
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! 

Gorgeous Registered Dales Pony

SOLD!
Dressage and trail prospect!
  I am thrilled to be able to offer to the public this very special pony! Clive is a rare registered Dales Pony whose sire was imported from France! 
   The Dales pony is an incredibly sturdy breed, short but with the air and presence of a Friesian! Clive is the kind of people-loving gelding that is fun to bond with. He is willing and smart, so fun to train. This along with his strong movement and build, makes him very promising to finish for show, eventing, or Dressage. Watch his video to see what he has learned so far! 
   If you are looking for that jet black impressive mount that is short (14.1) and very GOOD minded, DONT LET THIS ONE GET AWAY! 
14.1 hands, 6 years old, Registered Dales -papers in hand
Clive was breed at the Raspotnik Farm in Ashland, WI.

He is now continuing his training at the Sunrise Ranch in Mason, WI.        $6,500
Must see YouTube video of Clive!

Well Trained BLM Mustang Mare 
Indian Summer

SOLD!
  Are you looking for your next all-around trail buddy? I think I have a good prospect in this little red dun Mustang from Divide Basin, Wy. 
I got Summer as a nine-year-old BLM mare a couple of years ago, did her ground work, and now I'm finally getting to finishing her as a family trail horse. 
   So typical if mustangs, she is a tough, confident, square all-terain little horse! This horse watches her footing, navigates messes well, and plows through snow drifts calmly. Intelligent and curiously forward about the trail she has a steadiness about her that I really like. Mustangs were bred for endurance by natural selection! Summer loves to eat, keeps heself toward the top of the herd, and seems to take new things with a low key acceptance. To build her exposure I have done many different things with her including herding cows, towing balky colts, and pulling the kids on their skis. Now I'm taking her for long trail rides in many new places. She seems to enjoy that a lot and likes the company of our yellow lab. Summer has an easy to ride trot that she prefers and can maintain on a loose rein. 
I start my horses with a strong foundation in ground work and natural horsemanship principles and they all get to participate in family life and ranch work. 
   Summer rides in a simple side-pull bridle and on a loose rein. She does her transitions with a light cue from the leg and seat and sometimes a soft word or a gentle tug on the rein. This little horse is athletic she's got tons of muscle and is very capable of working off the hindquarters. I taped her at 1,000 at 14 hands high and she is not fat! I call her a big horse on short legs! 
I have not put the go button on her but have focused on correct willing and light response. 
  Mustangs are bonding and become partners for life and they are known to be good family horses and patient in the long run. 
  While there are those interested in Summer, her forever family hasn't announced itself yet. It may still be winter out, but this is a good time to get to know a new horse and start the relationship and conditioning needed for summer rides. I would not call her "seasoned" or "expierienced" but she is being carefully ridden every other day throughout the winter. For a little "three strikes" mustang, Summer has a promising future!    $ 3,000

  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.
