He's a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes,
points of his ears sittin' way up high! Yes indeed, Batman is
a beauty who sits up in the bridle and gaits off in grand
style. Wonderful temperament and a pure joy to ride. His
rump and tail appear to be in the shape of a bat. His
wonderful smooth gait and unique handsome looks will turn
some heads know matter where he is ridden. Coming five years
of age and already a very solid horse that can be ridden in
any place at any time. He has had all of his vaccines,
equine dental check, vet check and new shoes. Good handsome
horses like this are getting hard to find! BATMAN!!!!
handsome horse is Duke. Duke has been with one family in
eastern Kentucky since birth. His pasture mate, Lady White
Star is also one of my horses and she is posted on my
website as well. As mentioned on the write-up of Lady White
Star, Duke is a descendant of a wonderful strain of the
Mountain Horse breed that is referred to as, Mountain
Pleasure and a registry named, Mountain Pleasure Horse
Association. As a longtime businessman deeply involved in
the gaited horse industry, I have always looked for horses
that come from the Mountain Pleasure Horse strain. Why???
Answer.....wonderful dispositions! Posted are five videos of
this magnificent gelding. Keep in mind that these videos
were shot on Duke's second ride in New Mexico. If you can
see anything negative about this horse from these videos
than you are seeing something I fail to see. I can tell you
from further rides after these videos were shot that this
Duke horse doesn't look/spook at a single object. He has
multiple gears and is as smooth as silk! Yes, this gelding
is just coming five years of age but I can tell you that
Duke has a better temperament than the majority of horses
will ever have at any age! Already Duke is a solid 15.1 and
1/2 inch. I strongly believe he will grow another inch and
of course get even more muscular and stout. If I had to get
on a horse here in New Mexico and ride back to St. Louis,
Missouri like folks did a hundred plus years ago, I get on
Duke without a second thought. What would you ride?
"One owner, high miles, certified used! This big beautiful babe is Lady
White Star. She is a Mountain Horse, registered in the Mountain Pleasure Horse Association. (The Mountain Pleasure Horse Association originally concentrated on the palomino color and disposition) If you happen to be familiar with this strain of Mountain Horse, you would certainly know of her famous father Al Capone. (Not the mafia guy!) In this strain of this breed, folks simply saddled young unbroken horses up and got on! No buck, fear or fright occurred. (Not recommending you try this at home with unbroke colts!) Anyways, Lady
White Star is as smooth as silk, calm, gentle and will follow you anywhere. Seventeen years old but many good miles left. Been with one family that is relocating all of her life.........a darn good one!
ON THE FAST LANE, is this handsome black gelding's
registered name. We just call him, Lane! Extremely well-bred
Tennessee Walker! 9 years old and a definite black beauty!
Posted are several videos of Lane in various locations. I
believe these videos exemplify Lane's rock solid temperament
and shows his wonderful good nature. Lane has been a trail
horse his whole mature life! Lane would be a great choice
for a rider that may ride in congested areas or wants a
horse capable of handling a parade. Perhaps his new owner
rides in areas with abundance of wildlife as we have here
and around Twin Ponds Ranch. A fun, fun horse to be on and
Malibu Bay is, of course, a bay colored horse that exemplifies class. Previous owner was an accomplished 78 year old expert rider who trained and expected her horse to perform as he was trained. 9 years old and as you can see in the posted videos, Malibu is a solid and safe trail and pleasure horse. Standing a hair over 15 hands, he is built solid and ready for his next owner to take him where ever! If you can climb up in the saddle and hold the reins---you can ride him! Malibu would make an excellent beginner or family horse. You'll get no lip out of this guy!
Patchy is a sorrel and white paint or spotted gelding that is half
Trotter/half Quarterhorse. Aged 15, 15.3 hands. Patchy gaits!
Used extensively to trail ride and camp in the mountains. Duke is the handsome chestnut quarter horse. Ages are 15 &16. The folks that had Duke
and Patchy traded them in with me for two gaited geldings but were sad to see them move on and are hopefully someone will buy
them as a pair. I am going to offer these nice brothers at a very good or
below market value price.
"To say this horse is unique would be a true statement. To say this gelding is handsome, would be an understatement.
Of all of the horse I have owned and ridden, Sterling is one-of-a-kind or at very least, few models made like him. Charismatic may
well describe how he draws attention from everyone! A friendly soul that loves people and other horses...if he see you coming he
is there to put his nose on your cheek. A Mountain Horse breed and his beautiful head is a sure sign of his breeding. Watching
the four videos I have posted show his wonderful gait, long stride and his undeniable love to be on the trail. Not a plum
beginners horse but anyone who can ride can safely ride him. There is no spook, jump or silliness in the guys behavior at all. The
one thing I will point out is that Sterling will weave from side to side when put in a stall. In a pasture or turn out pen it is seldom
noticed. Because of that, I have him marked well below what he should be priced at. Friendly, lovable and social, with a desire
to do what he was bred to do.........ride!
"August 2, 2014 up-date. Guest rode Sterling today with spouse who in turn bought Socks. As you can see from photos, guest rider just got on and enjoyed Sterling, this calm/sweet handsome boy!"
Connie is a 10 year old Mountain Horse mare that is just fun, fun, fun to ride. I have posted three videos on this website. One video show Connie clipping right along through the trees and rocks...........bushwhacking! Another video shows her magnificent smooth gait. And the finally video shows her walking on a loose rein. I can tell you that Connie does not look at a thing. I can fly right up behind her on a 4-wheeler and she doesn't even look back! A pretty horse that I would call a black chocolate, not a bay. She glitters in the sun and I can't think of a sole who wouldn't be proud to ride her anywhere! I was fortunate to purchase her right and I am going to sell her right. OK, here ya go..................$2,500 and you have got a real good one.
PS.......buy her and then please send me a Christmas card and say thanks. Yep, you'll be pleased!
Maggie May is an 8 year old, 14.3 hand, strawberry roan Missouri Fox Trotter mare. Neck reins, backs, great whoa and she does a true Fox Trot. Very smooth, at different speeds. She will cross anything, and goes anywhere. Had farrier out tonight and she lifts her foot before farrier asks her to. Maggie May has been trail ridden all over the country and loves to be ridden, Big and stout mare that can easily carry a large person without having to mount a tall horse. Maggie May's former owner rode her bareback six days a week to go down and get the mail. What a stunning beautiful horse that one needs to see in person to really appreciate! What a ride!
"August 2, 2014. New photos of guest riding Maggie May today."
