CONGRATULATIONS Spencer Benedict Stables. This mare is returning to her roots. The dam originally came from SBS and we bought her with the filly on her side bred by Carrie Benedict. Perfect combination and I'm glad to see her going back to Glasgow. Can't wait to see what she does next.
I don't think she will last long.......This mare is just perfect for anyone who is ready to ride and just wants to enjoy the day. She is calm, laid back, easy to work with and more importantly IF you want speed, you have to ask for it. There is no tugging and holding her back. NO moments of feeling the danger of a horse ready to bolt under you. Build up your confidence and do it on a horse that looks great and rides smooth. She has a just a little speed when asked and has no issues riding alone. I typically (well never) have a horse here at the farm without a blue blooded pedigree but couldn't resist this mare. She has the kindest eyes and just a soft approach. Boogie or BB as I call since I am a BB King fan is simply easy to spend the day on. She requires little to no work and you can put just about anyone up there without an issue thus far.
CONGRATULATIONS MR GENE & MRS NELTINE BURNETT OF LEWISBURG KENTUCKY. It has been a long and cold winter followed by a lot of rain in the area so riding time has been limited to almost nothing since November. This walking horse mare is 4 years old and had not been ridden on a trail since late summer so when we got her out last week to see how she would do, we were simply amazed. She saddled easily and walked right out of the barn with minimal fuss like she had been ridden all spring.
This mare is coming 4 and just hitting her stride. We rode her briefly last year to see what her personality and aptitude was for learning - intelligence - demeanor and she did GREAT. She is intelligent and takes everything in stride from trees to trucks and water. She doesn't talk to cows but has been stabled with one. Direct by Jose' Jose' out of a mare who is direct by Out on Parole which gives her that great combination of color, genetic beauty in conformation, and personality for that perfect trail horse. She was put back into the field to finish growing and filling out! February 2016 she will go back into the woods for a refresher course and she is beautiful right now - filled out and ready to go.
Jose' Jose' mares are notorious for growing slowly and hitting their stride at about 4 or 5 years of age when they start filling in at their chest and back ends so we are starting to see that now with a strong back end to match those talented long legs she has already shown us.
We love our friends and will miss them greatly but these two horses could not have gone to a better couple. Our other friends from Clarksville will be riding them this year! They were perfect for Debbie & Roger. Sometimes things just work out the way they should! Congratulations Debbie & Rogger on two great horses.
At the end of the day it is the pleasure you get from riding wonderful walking horses with friends that make the moments something you will take out and treasure for many years to come. We have two great friends that we met through trail riding at Wranglers Horse Camp that we have come to love over the past 5+ years now. We have ridden with them to Big Southfork, Eastfork, Wranglers, and many other places in between and their horses have always been a pleasure to ride with. It is with great sorrow mixed with equal parts joy in their new adventure that I am writing this piece as they will be moving to Belgium at the first of the year.
This means a radical change of life for them and a great opportunity for those of you who trail ride as they are selling all of their two walking horse geldings, a 2002 Sundowner 12 ft short wall aluminum trailer, a 2008 Ford Diesel F-350, and their Tucker saddles with all tack. All of their equipment is in excellent shape as they take very good care of it and their horses are well mannered and beautiful. Pricing....
