STARS IN HER CROWN
2004 Thoroughbred chestnut mare
16 hands, 1200 lbs
STAR is a beautiful Thoroughbred mare with a kind and gentle disposition, nice thick bones, deep shoulder, and long hip. She broke her maiden on the race track, earning over $11K, but due to an ankle injury was retired as a racehorse. After some time off, her ankle is healed and she’s now going to work as a lesson horse. In addition, Star will be a tremendous asset to our breeding program. Her sire is Argentina’s Triple Crown winner, CHULLO, and her dam’s sire is the one and only AFFIRMED. We expect exceptional foals with her by our stallion, as he crosses wonderfully with Thoroughbred mares. UPDATE…Get ready cause her babies are about to hit the competition arenas in 2018 and I expect great things!!

TRULY A SUGAR ROSE
1992 APHA Red Dun, breeding stock mare
15.2 hands, 1200 lbs
We call this big dun mare Breeze. She is an all around horse, with a huge shoulder, nice hip, and athletic front end. She has APHA points in the GAMES category, and was 8th in the nation in 1995. She is a proven barrel horse in the OPEN category, and took 4th in the 1D NBHA California State Finals in 1998. Still running and proving herself at the age of 20 years, she was used for the 2011 season for NBHA OPEN barrel category, and finished 1st in the 4D overall for the year end. She has won countless monies and awards, and is a phenominal lesson horse for all ages and levels of riders. Breeze has also competed in cow events, gymkhana, and competitive trail. When this mare isn’t competing, she’s producing gorgeous babies that are now competing themselves. Although she’s retired as a broodmare, she continues to teach riders true horsemanship. This outstanding mare is irreplaceable, she is the total package.
1995 APHA black, breeding stock mare
15.1 hands, 1100 lbs
Known as RAVEN, this compact mare was the little engine that could! She was the one that nobody saw coming. Earning APHA points in barrels and competing in the OPEN category , RAVEN was a tremendous athlete with a huge heart. Tracking under radar at speeds over 45 mph, this mare had unstoppable potential. It’s no surprise this black mare could run because she comes from some tough hardy race horses, including Man O War. Unfortunately her career as a performance horse had come to an end due to an injury, but she is now a great asset to our breeding program.
***update Sadly, we lost Raven to another injury in 2010. She left behind her legacy, 2 colts and 2 fillies. The fillies will be not be sold, but remain here. Our hopes are that they carry Raven’s heart and neverending tenacious spirit.
