As a small-scale Arabian horse
breeder in Texas, it is my goal to produce quality, not
quantity. I will always put the best interests of my horses first and
foremost. That is why all of my horses are raised in a herd setting in
order to develop the social skills necessary to be well-rounded individuals in
their adult life. All of my horses are handled from the moment they hit the
ground and learn appropriate ground manners right away. They are all
handled using the natural horsemanship principles taught by
Pat and Linda
Parelli in the Parelli Natural Horsemanship program. Using these
techniques, we are able to preserve the dignity and playful spirit of the horse,
while instilling in them respectfulness, confidence and desire to please and
seek out human companionship.
In choosing a stallion to breed my mares to, I look not only for
"type", but take heavily into account the disposition of the
stallion. The stallions I breed to must be calm, gentle and approachable,
as well as athletic and conformationally sound.
Arabian horses by nature are
extremely intelligent creatures and, when handled appropriately in their
training, are usually well-minded and solid horses. I wish to dispel
the myth that all Arabian horses are crazy and hard to manage, as it is just
that---a myth. My breeding program consists of mainly Polish and Russian
Arabian bloodlines, making for a very substantial, athletic and
versatile horse, ready for whatever discipline interests you. We also
have several Quarter Horses that we
have acquired over the years with
bloodlines and are offered for sale. We have
Sporthorse/Dressage, Endurance, Hunter/Jumper and Western Pleasure,
Cow Working prospects for
those with competitive aspirations. For those that are looking for the
perfect equine pleasure mount or family horse, all of our horses would be
suitable for that situation and have excellent ground skills and are very gentle.
2008 Purebred Arabian Chestnut Filly.
Siofhice (Touch Of Ice x
Siobhana). She has lots of pazzaz and the signature flaxen mane and tail
of her famous grandsire - multiple halter and western pleasure champion Fire An Ice. Flashy,
beautiful, athletic and intelligent. Great movement, correct tail
hock action! and that little something extra you look for in a show horse.
Will excel in Sporthorse, Western Pleasure, Hunter, take your pick. Excellent
Dressage or Endurance prospect.
Fantastic pedigree on both sire and dam
lines, includes *Druzba++, Czort, Negatiw, Negatraz, and multiple crosses to Witraz &
*Bask++, excellent broodmare
prospect. (See dam's bio below).
Started since birth using
horsemanship techniques. Friendly, playful and confident. Leads, ties, stands for farrier,
and trailer loads. She was started under saddle September
2011 and has already gone on several trail rides and is being ridden at
the walk, trot and canter.
Siobhana (*Bancock x
Archona) is a lovely 24-year-old pure Polish Arabian broodmare. She was 16
when I got her and has been a broodmare her entire life. She has an
enviable pedigree, filled with Halter, Endurance and English Pleasure
champions such as Naseem, Ofir, Witraz, Wielki Szlem, Czort, *Bask++, *Druzba++, Negatiw and Negatraz to name a few.
She is a RBI
(right-brained introvert) and was
never fully Parelli-ized via the 7 games, but I always used
principles when handling her. She is very sweet and a wonderful mother.
She has never been ridden and has foundered once before I got her through
overfeeding during pregnancy. However, she has not had any problems with
either laminitis or founder in my care. The ideal situation for her would
be a companion home. If you know of someone that has a lone horse that
needs a friend, she would be the perfect companion or someone that just
wanted to do play at groundwork with her.
Spirit (sire same as Regaleo Texas Twist above - no
papers on dam) is an unregistered Quarter Horse, line-back dun gelding. He
is approx. 13.2 hands, but very heavily muscled and powerful for his size.
His cutting bloodlines are evident in his lightning quick speed and
maneuverability. He is very athletic, extremely sensitive and catty.
Would do well in any kind of cow work or amateur reining/cutting events.
Unfortunately, due to an old injury, he has sesamoiditis issues that
periodically flare up. He will never be able to be used competitively or
do heavy cantering, however he has been holding up very well at the walk, trot,
and light cantering 4-5 days a week and has been on several trail rides with no
Excellent ground manners, trailer loads nicely, stands
for farrier, and ties well. Currently training in
Horsemanship Advanced Level 3 Ground Skills and Level 1/2 Riding
Skills. Is typically LBE (left-brained extrovert) most of the time
but has some introvert tendancies. He was started under saddle
late in life (2009/2010) by Chris Ruthven of
C & C Colt Company,
Whitesboro, Texas, and then was put on a 9-month pasture rest shortly
after arriving home May 2010, so he's still pretty green and would do
best with an experienced rider.
Regaleo Texas Twist, "Tex", (Regal Manana
Glo x Sheleobritriptwist) is an excellent working ranch horse, feed lot,
and cow horse prospect, or good trail horse. Possibly even Western
Pleasure or Dressage prospect. Has that wonderful slow easy to
ride Quarter Horse job and great extension at the forward trot.
Excellent cow pedigree,
Leo and King breeding. 14.3 hands, stout and well muscled in
the HQ and shoulder. Was in training with Chris Ruthven at
C & C Colt
Company, Whitesboro, Texas, from February-May 2009. Currently
being ridden 3 days a week (walk, trot and canter) with
Dale Kahl of Hico,
Texas. Chris and Dale are available to answer questions about Tex
and his suitability for any particular discipline.
Excellent ground manners, trailer loads
nicely, stands for farrier, and ties well. Currently training in
Horsemanship Advanced Level 3 Ground Skills/Level 2 Riding Skills.
Is a very typical LBI (left-brained introvert) most of the time, but can
be RBI (right-brained introvert) under saddle.
Texas desperately wants a job and loves
the water and visiting new places. He does best when he's working
and knows what's expected of him. Needs an experienced, confident
rider that can put lots of consistent time on him under saddle.
He's had approximately 200-250 hours riding under saddle since he was
started the summer of 2004.
