Our Mares & Fillies
People too often only look at a horse's sire, but every horse gets half its genetics from the dam... A great Sire and great Dam combined make truly exceptional foals! We believe people looking at gaited horses want the smoothest ride a horse can give, so we train every horse to do the gait they do the most effortlessly and smoothly. This is what we call their "natural gait" and is what they predominantly do loose in the field as well as under saddle. We do not raise horses that "Naturally" Just Pace or Hard Trot, even though an athletic horse can usually do both those "poor" gaits as well as the smooth ones. All our horses gait very smoothly, although there will be variations in color, size, style of gait, etc.
We have been in the Gaited Horse business for nearly 30 years and have built our stock up from several ranches that were breeding them selectively for many generations...some even before the Foxtrotter, Tennessee Walker, Racking, Single-footing or other breed registries were formed! We only raise beautiful horses that gait naturally & smoothly, have great athletic ability & gentle minds! You can travel through many states, visit hundreds of horse farms, and seldom find horses of this quality. There are other people raising horses equal to ours, but they are few and far between...and usually priced higher than us. After looking at and riding all the "bargains" you can stand, come ride with us and FEEL THE DIFFERENCE! When you do, you will likely never be satisfied with anything else.
After each name, (SF) = Single Footing Horse & (STB) = Standardbred & (MFT) = Missouri Foxtrotting Horse
Princess Bingo V. (MFT)
Princess is a wonderful MFT bay mare born in 1997, she stands 15 hands. She is one of our foundation mares sired by Annie Lobo (MO Traveler son) and out of a dam from Midnight Mac T & Zane Grey plus other wonderful ancestors. She has been a wonderful producer & a major part of our family. She is a gentle and sweet babysitter for kids to learn on and at the same time an exhilarating and great ride for the most demanding adult rides. She is a multi-purpose horse for sure. She not only flat walks, foxtrots and canters, but also does a dream running walk, rack, and even a 20mph single-footing gait! We didn't even know she could do that for many years until we rode her alongside one of our Singlefooters and when he took off, she just copied him and away we flew! She is one of the most wonderful horses we've ever had. She had a foal in June 2017 and we plan to retire her having babies and let her be a riding horse full time as many years as she can, as she loves going out in the hills with us!
Dollie's Starlight V. (MFT)
YouTube Starlight Video!
Starlight is a sweetheart MFT gray mare born in 2000 that stands 15 hands & is used by the little tikes to learn on, she takes extremely good care of them! She used to be used by Dad to do 20+ miles per day chasing elk through the mountains, but is starting to slow down these days. She is another rare horse that can sit untouched for months then put a little child on safely and also be a totally exhilarating and perfect horse for experienced riders to love riding! She flat walks, foxtrots, run walks, and racks in the low teens too! She had her last foal in 2017 and we plan to leave her open and just let her enjoy being ridden as many more years as possible.
We'll bring Starlight and give rides for your wedding, reunion, birthday party or other event, with our beautiful white carriage! It seats 6 adults easily and can be open topped or covered. We charge $75/hour + travel expenses to your location.
Speed Dreamin' (SF)
Dreamin' is a 2008, 15.1 hand, beautiful buckskin Single-Footing mare. She is a smooth riding, "gentle enough for kids but exciting for adults" type of awesome mare! Her sire is a smooth moving Kentucky Mtn Horse sired by White Cloud and her dam was a racing Standardbred mare. She is super gaited at all speeds, sweet natured and a blast to ride!
Rowdy's Black Lightning (SF)
Lightning is a 2008 model, 15.3 hand, gorgeous smoky black Single-Footing mare. She is loving & sweet, and truly a thrill to ride, either racing up the road or breaking brush in the mountains. Her sire is the awesome Single-footing Stallion, "Rowdy Rawhide's Lightning", and her dam is a 15mph gaiting TWH mare. She does a wide range of gaits well from a nice relaxed non-gaited walk, a 5-8mph flat foot walk, a 6-12mph running walk, a 8-20mph rack, to a 15-25mph single foot! She is well trained and gentle for all riders, but with a big motor who loves to cover the country! She has extreme endurance, the likes of which is seldom found in any breed...even world class Arabian endurance race horses I've trained! (And the whole time she's gliding along so I sit in total comfort without an inch of bouncing!) I can ride her at an average speed of 12mph for 3-4 hours straight without even resting, and she just eats up the miles like a machine! She's awesome in the hills, sliding down and climbing up steep rough terrain, very sure footed, and just more fun than words can describe to ride! We love this sweet mare.
Caviar's Southern Belle (STB)
Belle is a 15.3 hand racing Trotting bred Standardbred mare, 2010 model, sired by the famous winning standardbred, SJ Caviar, a trotter with a 1:54 track record and $1.3 million winnings. She is a sweetheart and a beauty, plus a dream to ride...glassy smooth from a 4mph flat walk clear up over 20+mph single foot, that is surefooted in even rough and rugged country. She is a powerhouse with a lot of life, not spooky, but just an enormous desire to move forward and cover country which makes her too much for a novice rider but a real thrill for a good rider. This big powerful mare was a buggy horse and used to hard trotting when we got her and after having some babies for us I decided to see if we could turn her into a gaited riding horse, as I knew her genetics and loved her sweet disposition. It took a while riding her to get her to do all the gaits well, but now she flat walks, run walks, racks and single-foots. What an amazing experience to ride her, as she crashes through brush, gaiting smoothly in uneven terrain and topping sandy hills and conquering mountain peaks, one after another with awesome endurance and glassy smooth riding at any speed! I love how I can slow her to a 6-8mph gait to rest her, the same speed many horses get winded doing, and then go back to 10-20mph for another 10 miles. This mare is a dream to ride!
Rock's Royal Corvette (SF)
Corvette was foaled June 23, 2017 and is a gorgeous bay, sired by The Rock and out of Princess, a Missouri Traveler bred MFT mare who very smoothly flat walks, foxtrots, run walks, racks and also single-foots over 20mph!!! She is amazingly gaited and very friendly and so beautiful! She should mature at 15+ hands and be another rare 20+ mph speed machine! She gaits smooth as any horse I've ever ridden at all her gaits, and is extremely surefooted as well. We have her gliding through the forest at a 4-6mph flat walk, a 5-9 mph foxtrot, and doing an awesome 8-15mph rack. We'll continue building up her speed as we cover many miles, always focusing on her keeping a correct posture, soft mouth, obedient & submissive mind, with glassy smooth gaits at every speed...and expect her to finish off with a 20+mph single-foot as well as doing all the other wonderful slower gaits on cue, through any terrain & going up or downhill. She has such a sweet nature that we expect her to be a wonderful family riding horse for many years to come! (She's now 14.3 hands & if she does not grow to 15Hh and strong enough to carry 250+ lbs over the mountains 15-20 miles in an hour, then we may sell her...even though she is otherwise so wonderful. So, if you want to be put on our list to contact if she comes up for sale then send an email to let us know.)
Caviar's Rocky Mountain Belle (SF)
This gorgeous bay paint SF Mare was born on March 23, 2018. Her sire is Cherokee, a powerful 16.1 hand, smooth gaited MFT stallion and her dam is our 15.3 hand racing tattooed trotting Standardbred mare, Caviar's Southern Belle. She should be a big stunning beauty that rides like a dream at every speed from a gliding flat walk clear up to a 20+mph single-foot! She just finished several months of basic obedience training with Dal & Margo Guymon, who do an absolutely superb job training. With such a fantastic training foundation, we're now putting miles on her, and perfecting her gaits at each speed, working our way up to her potential, but focused on keeping her soft, supple, balanced, and smooth as glass as we reach for higher speeds. Rocky Mtn Belle is a real beauty and a sweetheart!
Rowdy Rawhide's Mercedes (SF)
This gorgeous dark bay mare, born 4/25/18, is sired by The Rock and out of a Missouri Traveler MFT bred mare, with awesome smooth gaits. We expect her to mature in the 15.3-16 hand range & to be a fantastic smooth-gaited speed horse. She is already showing impressive athleticism and agility, and good gaits from 2.5-12mph, and we are just starting her gaited training, so expect her to be another awesome 20+mph single-footing machine! She just finished a couple months of basic obedience training with Dal & Margo Guymon, who do an absolutely superb job training. With such a fantastic training foundation, we're now putting miles on her, and perfecting her gaits at each speed, working our way up to her potential, but focused on keeping her soft, supple, balanced, and smooth as glass as we reach for higher speeds. Mercedes is going to be a big powerful speed gaited horse that we're very excited to enjoy for many years to come!
Rock's Dream Lamborghini (SF)
This beautiful young mare, born 8/13/18, sired by The Rock, out of Speed Dreamin', is truly as perfect a filly as I've ever seen in every way! She should mature at 15 hands, glide like a dream at every speed from 2-30mph and is athletic as any horse I've ever seen. She is a dark sooty buckskin, solidly built, and incredibly gaited, with a great personality! She's going to be a high energy horse who really eats up the miles and not meant for the occasional short distance rider, even though she seems gentle enough, as she'll be just warming up at 10+ miles. A gorgeous animal like this, who has TWO parents that both gait 25+mph and smooth as glass at all speeds is very rare & we love this gorgeous gal and are excited over her. She just finished several months of basic obedience training with Dal & Margo Guymon, who do an absolutely superb job training. With such a fantastic training foundation, we're now putting miles on her, and perfecting her gaits at each speed, working our way up to her potential, but focused on keeping her soft, supple, balanced, and smooth as glass as we reach for higher speeds. She is a real doll!
