A strong connection with a light hand. 

~Cress Whitman~

My Foundation & Mission

I grew up riding without a saddle on the high prairie in Wyoming. My mother laid a foundation in my early childhood that has brought me into my 30's with a never-ending thirst for wanting to ride 'one more' horse. I believe God has put me on this earth to assist people and their horses achieve that same feeling.

I have apprenticed with working cow-horse trainers, colt-starters & largely been responsible for my own successes. I have a strong Natural seat background that has brought me into a solid combination of dressage &  horsemanship. Every animal & human being has something to offer. I believe thru discipline, goals & a thorough understanding of the horse, confidence will bloom & success will be achieved.

 

A few of my Honored influences:

Ray Hunt, Jack Brainerd, Buck Brannaman,

Jeff Griffiths, Jennifer Kaiser, Dean Barent, Nathan Ivie

MISSON:

To constantly evolve through offering quality horses yet lend to the undertaking of

providing horse counsel in an individual or family setting.

To assist humanity in hosting a safe place in the mind as well as on the back of a horse.

To assist Horseman in providing a mount and a path to success be it in the ring, the mountains or the ranch.

GIDEON

 16.3h 1900lb gelding. 13yrs old.
We've owned Gideon 8 years and have decided he is too tall for us as we age!!
He is super sweet and has no major vices. He is well suited for many types of riding. He is a bit of a kick ride- excellent brakes and travels fine on contact or on a loose rein. He is UTD on all cares and is currently sharp shod. He has never had any health or soundness issues. We recommend a strong beginner or intermediate rider as Gideon is a bit un-sure on the ground at times if not being ridden consistently. Does well in new areas and situations. Gideon goes anywhere you point him. Over dead fall, bridges, water- doesn't mind working cattle at all. Ties quietly, does not paw. Loads into any trailer and backs out or turns around quietly. Not herd bound. Very independent thinking horse. Travels well in a group of horses and houses nicely in the pecking order - has only been to pasture with geldings since we've owned him. $22,500. Offers considered to an excellent home. Long distance Transport options available at discount.
