We strive to have the latest-most up to date training methods for healthy, good minded, and of course, the smoothest horses in the world. We only sell horses that have been raised, started, and trained right here! No trade in's or pre trained horses will ever be sold on this platform.
I have invested my time and knowledge into creating the Ultimate Gaited Horse. I have never been one to believe that you either breed for show or trail, my interest is in both and I intend on putting my love, knowledge, and integrity to use in both category's to create horses that shine with quality, pristine training, and gait; no matter if you're on the highest stage of ring competition or pleasure trail riding. My goal is that you get your DREAM HORSE that has it all, literally.
This is the most important ingredient in my breeding program, "the must have". Throughout my years of being in charge of various breeding programs for farms across the country I was blessed enough to train the creations of horses that I crossed and created. Basically, I was crossing horses for the biggest breeders then starting the colts that I crossed three years later, there is no replacement for the knowledge I gained in having that opportunity. There was one variable that remained the same, it was that no matter what the horse would end up being used for, you had to train the brain, there is no way around it, and sadly, not all horses are created equally in this particular category. I refuse to cross horses that are not user friendly because I have seen first- hand that all of the talent, strength, pedigree, and training is senseless, literally, without the brain.
I was blessed in the fact that I grew up on horseback, and even more blessed that they were gaited! From the age of three to my late teens I was usually riding with my Dad on a trail somewhere in southeast America, we would practically go every weekend in the spring, summer, fall, and even some weekends in the winter. The trails taught me things about riding that you cannot be taught in an arena or around the barn. Not only did the trails teach me how to ride and truly be one with the horse, it taught me what it really takes for a horse to be a REAL trail horse, not a trail horse on paper but a horse that is enjoyable, smooth, and how to have one of the top trail horses no matter where you ride. In my late teens I started training horses for a living and never turned back. When I finally got my foot in the show world I loved it! There was nothing like competing against the top NATURAL horse trainers in the world, it made me take my God given ability's and my natural talent, to heights that I didn't know were possible. I'm thirty five now and the Lord has placed me in situations and environments that have allowed me to perfect my craft. The one thing I can tell you for sure, no horse is the same, no horse can be trained the same, every horse must be approached with an open mind, and don't ever let someone tell you breeding and training don't matter!
