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 is a wonderful MFT bay mare that 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 breeding program. 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.

Starlight giving 6 yr old boy his 1st riding lesson!
Starlight's Various Gaits & Racking 10-13 mph too!
Starlight is a sweetheart MFT gray mare that stands 15 hands & is used by the little tikes to learn on and even by Dad to do 20+ miles per day chasing elk through the mountains. 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, 15.2 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!
Dreamin' is being bred to The Rock again for a 2018 Single-Footing foal!
Rowdy's Black Lightning (SF)
Non Gaited Walk:
Flat Foot Walk:
Lightning is a 2010 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 2.5mph 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 gal! As well as a family riding horse, she may be bred to Bad Cat & The Rock to produce amazing BIG, POWERFUL, FAST, GENTLE, Single-Footing horses in the future!
Please do not try riding fast on pavement unless you have Drill-Tech brazed onto the shoes (or other methods) to prevent slipping!
Caviar's Southern Belle (STB)
Belle is a 15.3 hand racing Trotting bred Standardbred mare, 2011 model. She is a sweetheart and a beauty, plus a dream to ride...glassy smooth from a 4mph flat walk clear up over 30+mph single foot, with endurance only Hollywood filmmakers could believe! She will be enjoyed as a riding horse and bred to produce the world's smoothest & fastest gaited horses!
Belle is bred to Cherokee for a very large Painted Singlefooting foal in 2018!
Rock's Flying Gypsy (SF)
Gypsy & 2017 baby :)
In Training summer of 2017:
In Training, Nov 2017:
Gypsy is a 2012 model, gentle, beautiful & athletic jet black Single-Footing mare. She should mature at 15.2 hands. She has a nice even 4 beat gait from a flat walk up to a speed racking Single-Foot gait. She is smooth and fast. Her sire is our Two Time World Champion Speed Racking Stallion, "The Rock" and her dam is a lovely gaiting TWH mare. She will be a riding horse and bred to produce amazingly fast, smooth, gentle Single-Footing foals. Gypsy had a gorgeous filly in 2017 and will stay open as a riding horse this year and will likely be bred back to Bad Cat again a later year.
A couple months of good training & look at her go!!! She still has a lot to learn and more speed to gain, but she's doing really great for her training level...

Rock's Black Panther (SF)
Panther was foaled May 2, 2017 and is a lovely black filly sired by Bad Cat out of Gypsy, a Rock daughter! She is sweet and gaited to the hilt and is so adorable! She appears to be destined to be much taller than her sire and in the 15.1-2 hand range & to be a 25-30mph speedy cat!
Rock's Royal Corvette (SF)

Corvette was foaled June 23, 2017 and is a gorgeous bay filly 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 already amazingly gaited and very friendly and so beautiful! She should mature around 15.1 hands and be another rare 20-30mph speed machine!
Rock's Sweet Ferrari (SF)
Just born & 1st time standing :) 6 Hours old:
Ferrari was foaled July 5, 2017 and is a beautiful, huge, bay filly sired by The Rock and out of a very stout, 15.3 hand extremely smooth & fast gaiting MFT mare we owned, named Dr's Sweet Jazz. (You can see her on our sold page.) This filly is gorgeous, friendly, gaited like crazy and should mature near 16 hands. Wow, I've never seen a week old baby fly through the field in a perfect singlefoot gait as fast as most horses can gallop, and glide smooth as glass at every other lower speed as well, and always stay in a wonderful gait!
