Rats N Cats - having fun trail riding in Rocksprings, TX!

horizontal rule

I have just spent a happy week at our ranch in Rocksprings, riding Buddy (Rats N Cats) every day. He is everything I was looking for - quiet minded, well mannered, small ...being beautiful and a son of High Brow Cat is icing on the cake!
Thank you, again, for finding him for me.

Chiquita Nu Memories aka: "Kita" - having fun trail riding in Copperass Cove, TX!

horizontal rule

Hi, Ashley,

We just returned to Texas from a trail ride with friends in Oklahoma. I wanted to tell you just how fabulous Kita was. She traveled heavily wooded trails like a pro. She rode quietly through large changes in elevation. She rode quietly through rocky, muddy trails. She crossed many mountain streams and one was even belly-deep for her. She rode with four other horses beautifully and these horses were strangers to her. It did not matter if she was in the front, middle or the rear, she was the same great horse.

She is exactly the horse that I was looking for. We are already planning our next trail riding trip.


Thank you very much.

Hi Ashely & Amanda,
Just wanted to let you know how excited I am with "Joker"! Awesome little horse! I'm so glad I brought him home with me! I've been learning his buttons and he's teaching me a few things himself.

MS Smart Tipster - having fun trail riding in Lewisville, TX!

horizontal rule

Hey Ashley!

little mare is doing great. We rode out for the first time NYE and she was not excited about the donkey that lives in the front pasture and had a hard time crossing water....

Yesterday I went out on her and (donkey wasn't there) and she did fine.
We rode 25 miles and crossed that same stream of water she jumped over NYE about 5 times and she crossed it fine.

Went out again today for 3 hours and she was great! She's looky at things but doesn't really spook. Which is fine.
She gets along great w the other horses I trail ride with and listens well to my commands. I've let her loose a couple times and she's very pokey (slow, lol) but she stops when I tell her to! Which is great Bc most ponies don't when they get going.

So overall she's great! Haven't had any major issues with her, except the donkey.... But after she freaked out I got off her and made her meet him... Then she was fine!

I might be looking for another horse soon so if anything comes to mind let me know!

Dear Ashley,

Just wanted to thank you and your sister again for helping me find these three wonderful horses.

Hey Ashley! I just wanted to give you the update on Banjo! He is doing AMAZING. i could ask for a better rodeo horse! i took him to the 4H district competition back in june, and he won me a 12th place ribbon out of 87 riders in the barrel racing division!:-) he got me qualified for the state competion! :-) when we went to state, which was in Abilene the last week of July, I ran a 26.026 on poles, and a 16.826 on barrels! I almost cried because i've never ran that fast on barrels. we didnt make top twenty with that time, but we placed 22nd out of 154 riders. We were so close! But for his first time there, i was happy with his performance. We havent had him for a long time, but he's already making me improve, and run faster times. i love him, and once again I can't thank y'all enough for letting us come and try him out. He's such a good boy!:-) I am sending you a picture of me and banjo with our 12th place ribbon from district, and a couple pictures from state. Once again, thank you guys so much!:-)

Hey!
I just wanted to let you know that banjo and me are two peas in a pod! I love him to death. Him and Dakota are like brother and sister now. He loves his new barn and loves his new owners! I've already taken him to 3 barrel races and placed in the 3D in all of them! I can't thank you enough for letting us come out there bright and early in the morning and trying them out. He's perfect! we are actually going to a barrel race today in
Bastrop, Tx and I'm so excited! I can't say enough good things about him. He has absolutely no alley issues, no problems with other horses, and he's not scared to be in new arenas that he's never been in! He's my baby:-) I will send you some pictures of me and him so you can post them on your website:-) once again, I can't thank you enough!:-):-)

Hey Ashley! Just wanted to give you the update on Gracie!
She is doing amazing! Shannon just adores her. We are so happy that we purchased her, because if we didn't, Shannon wouldn't be at the level that she is now.

Jacen had his first "official" riding lesson on Peanut (Cheeto) this week. This little gelding is so quiet..proving to be everything we thought he was! On a side note, Jacen saw an ad in the AMERICA'S HORSE magazine I was reading last week. A girl with long dark hair, straw cowboy hat, red shirt, jeans, and boots was sitting on a horse. He pointed and loudly exclaimed, "That's Amanda!"

Berts Poco Playboy - now trail riding in Cedar Hill, TX

horizontal rule

Ashley,

It's been almost 1 1/2 years that I have had Bert, and I am still thankful for you in helping me find him! He is the sweetest boy and is proving to be a great trail horse. He is not afraid to attempt different types of terrain and water crossings, and his confidence transmits to other less confident horses on the trail, so they will do things they haven't done. Our barn just got a new manager who does reigning and cutting, so I will be learning things on Bert that Bert knows well, but I don't! It should be fun. Everyone at the barn loves him!!!! Thank you so much for helping us meet each other. I will recommend you every time I have the chance!

Sage has been AWESOME! A few days after getting her home we went on a trail ride to the Kroger near my house. Only thing she was a little scared of was those crazy cyclists who would come up out of nowhere. I've also taken her to my trainers a couple times now and he was shocked that she was only 3! She is always so willing and brave. By far she has the best brain of any horse I've owned. I am so excited to see her grow up, and am so thankful for your awesome and honest service. One of the best horse buying experiences I've had.

Thanks so much!

Hey Ashley-Got to ride Chewy in the Bob's today. OMGosh! Best money I think I ever spent!

Traffic, dogs, and pastures of other crazy horses, and we all survived. Oh, and did I mention this was all done with zero lunging after almost three weeks without being ridden?!?!

This is Emily's Mom. (Meg) I wanted to send you a few more pictures and you can see what a wonderful rider and young lady Emily has grown up to be. She and Reno just have become one. they are such a good team. He is the highlight of our day always. I just can not thank you enough for working with me to find the perfect horse. It has been almost three years now that we have had him and he still amazes me everyday. You can tell he loves to please Emily. She is also doing reining and he just rocks at it! We will always recommend you when anyone asks us where to get a horse. You are honest and true and that is hard to find in the horse world!!

Thanks for making my life so great!

Dear Ashley,
Here are some of Emily and Reno's first show pictures. This horse continues to amaze me everyday. He is kind and gentle to her and really lights up when she walks into the barn. We are so lucky to have such a level headed 4 year old horse. We get compliments all the time on how well he behaves. Nothing seems to get him anxious or upset. She can take him anywhere. We are so lucky to have him. Emily has been doing a little reining patterns with him and I tell her to learn from him. He is just such a great horse. To us he is priceless!!!!! Thanks again for all your help in finding us the best horse. We adore him.
With all our respect,

Meg and Bob Powell
Emily and Reno!!

Dear Ashley,

hey, how's it going at valley view? things are going great up here. I have just started lopeing on Reno. he is so good for me. sincerely, Emily and Reno

Reno is the perfect horse for me thanks for finding him for me. I appreciate it. today (12-19-08) I rode Reno in a halter and lead rope and another horse got spooked and reared and the rider fell off and the horse stepped on the riders foot (today was her b-day and she is one of my friends who is turning 18) and amazingly Reno did not react at all so I did not get hurt. but again I thank you very much for finding the perfect horse for me I love him so much!!!! I will up date you on some recent pictures. thanks again, Emily Powell and  Rawhides Reno

Hi there,

Just wanted to update you on Emily and Reno. They are such a good pair. We can't thank you enough for what you did in helping us find a great horse for our daughter. I will always look to you in the future for a great horse. Here are some pictures of Emily and Rawhide Reno. I will also send you updates. She will be showing in the spring. She is learning so much and she has a great horse to learn on. Everyone is so impressed with him. I have given your website address to many people this month. In the future we will contact you again for a horse. We can't thank you enough. I hope all is well with you and your family and at Valley View.

Thank you so very much,

Meg, Bob, and Emily Powell

Love this horse more every time I ride her! Chick's got a beautiful golden summer coat. took two buddies to talk me into taking the leap to buy her. Now I can't thank you enough for making it happen. (Would never have any hesitation buying another horse from you if the needs arises.) You can tell her old owner she has a home for life.

horizontal rule

Ok, you have made a believer out of me. I still can't believe I bought a horse off the internet without ever trying her. So out of character for me. That being said, I absolutely love this mare. She is everything you told me and more. I would never hesitate to buy another horse from you. Thank you so much. Dianne

Finally got to ride Chick yesterday. Very on the muscle but settled a bit during the ride. Hopefully will mellow with a bit more work. She had been sitting for quite a while now. Great mare, I love her. Thanks.

Having a great time with him, Yes, a little attitude but very easy to get over himself. Just exactly as you explained him. He is just hilarious and I really love him. We have been to four barrel races, just getting the atmosphere down, So, I am comfortably not him. He's great. I knew what to expect on my mare, just taking it easy and enjoying all my time with him. I see him almost everynight, and he is ridden/worked 5 days a week.

the girls from my barn talked me into going to a western pleasure show. I said, I don't do that kinda riding. So, I went entered the walk, jog, lope open class and placed 4th, Wow, as I entered into the area, I yelled at one of my girlfriends. "How do I hold the reins again" They all fell over when the class was done. There were about 22 people in the class.

Always,

Liz

Hey!

Well just wanted to send another update. "Izzie" has blown my mind! Never thought she would come so far so quick.. And people are noticing. Haha :) I took her to a barrelrace against the "toughs" a few weekends ago and she ran in the bottom of the 1D. Then she made her first semi "pro" rodeo debut this past weekend (IPRA rodeo) and ran 4 tenths off (15.5 and 15.1 won) This was against horses that are solid 1D/IFR quality. So... To have a few bobbles and run .4 tenths off after barely a month of running her.... Was pretty amazing to say the least! This girl has been an absolute dream.

Also.. I have been asked multiple times where she came from and pretty sure there are a few girls already trying to plan trips to come see y'all. Haha. So... If you get any TN rodeo girls.. Izzie likely sent them your way :) I'm sending you her video from the IPRA rodeo. Ignore the commentary- just a goofy friend.

Thanks again,

Nikki

Playboys Hickory Bar -now called "Rio", is sorting in Waterfall, PA!

Hi Ashely - Just wanted to update you on a horse I purchased from Valley View in Dec. Playboys Hickory Bar a.k.a. Tony. He is doing great here in PA. He's not crazy about our mountains, deer, and bugs though. We have been on the trails a lot this spring with the nice weather - although he doesn't seem thrilled with trail riding. Seems to be wondering when we are going to get to the cows. I took him sorting for the first time last Sat night and he showed me a complete different horse. He was definately in his element. That was my first time sorting and he made me look good. I absolutely had a blast and am hooked. That is the most fun I have ever had on a horse and plan to do a lot more. Tony's name is now Rio and has picked up on it quickly comes in from the pasture when called.

He was everything you said he was and I am so happy to have found him. Thanks again.

P.S. Please pass this along to his former owner and tell her I love him to death.

Robin in PA

Yes! you may post.

I am already searching for more ranch sortings in our area. The one we went to only holds twice per month and that isn't enough. There seem to be more team penners in our area - I might have to try that til the sorting picks up.Thanks again for a great horse. I waited a long time for this one.

Ready On Five - winning money and prizes with her young owner in Houston, TX!

Hey Ashley,

Had to share these pics with you of Ally and Ms. Piggy from Saturday.  Over 200 entries, and Ally placed 3rd in the 2D youth class and won $80 and a custom bronc halter!

Another girl from our barn who high school rodeoed (and hasn’t ridden in 3 years) also entered Piggy in the Open at the same race and she placed 3rd in the 4D and won $250 and a custom bridle!

Ms. Piggy ran 3 times that day (Ally fell in the cracks in the 4D in the open)  (fastest time that day was a 15.4) and Ally has run her fastest times yet, in the low 17’s.  She is just getting better and better and we are so happy with her!!

Cash Luckys Check-  winning with Erin in Sheridan, AR!

Ashley,

My last name has changed.  Hope that didn't cause confusion.

I'm finally getting these pictures sent.  I can't tell you how much we love this little mare.  She is the most willing, gentle little thing.  And she will GO!!!  Not to mention she will turn on a dime!  I'm never afraid for Erin to be on her either.  She is so trustworthy.

She and Erin went to our State Show in keyhole and poles the very first year we had her.  They went back last year, and were only one position out of placing.  Erin and Lucy are perfect for each other.  We had a preseason playday last weekend, and Erin and Lucy won all of their events but one, and they were second in it!  They get noticed everywhere we go.  We honestly think we DID SOMETHING by getting this little gal!  We can't thank you enough.

The Diverse Luke -  being loved by a sweet family in League City, TX!

Dear Ashley

First of all let me apologize for taking so long to write and let you know how happy we are with our amazing "LUKE". There are no words to  adequately describe the joy he has brought to me and our family. After a bad riding accident, it was very important for me to find a horse that would be tolerant of my imperfections, with a kind disposition. If you remember we came to you in search of a smaller horse...but we were attracted to Luke .....like love at first sight. I remember the day we met him like it was yesterday. We let our son Riley try him out first. It was unbelievable. All 59 pounds of our fourth grader connected with him immediately as they had a great ride. I remember my turn: still a bit unsteady I climbed in the saddle. Luke had no problems dealing with my out of shape posting and weak seat at the canter.

We continue to have a wonderful relationship with this awesome horse. He has the perfect disposition for us. He loves to be ridden almost as much as he loves to share our gatoraide!!! Yes, that has become a special treat for him along with his cookies, apples, and carrots.

Riley has even shown him in a local A show and placed eighth on the flat in a rather large class. Riley will begin showing him more this spring.

Like his full name "THE DIVERSIFIED LUKE" implies...this beautiful equine is just an all round splendid animal and we feel so blessed that he is now part of our family.

As much I love riding him...I have a feeling my son will be taking him over...which means we will probably be calling you soon to find another great horse and good friend for Luke!

She's a great listener, I don't think it will take much to get her running barrels! She's always willing to do anything! I love her to death! Thanks a bunch for everything! :)

Tamu Nu Rey Jay  with the Wilson's in Waco, TX!

Hi Ashley!  About 6-8 weeks ago I bought a 12 yr bay named Ray Jey (I think).  Now his name is Bucket.  Ha.  He is awesome and takes good care of my little boy when he is being ponied by my dad on his bay horse. There is nothing better than seeing Grandpa and Grandson riding together and talking nonstop.  In fact, they've decided to become Dallas horse cops.  Hehehe.  Thanks again for your help in matching us with Bucket.  I hope y'all are doing well!

Mack W  with Cindy in Brownfield, TX!

Ashley,

Just want you to know how well Mack is working out for us.  He is a gentle giant.  He and Dennis have really bonded. I could not remember what you said about his vaccinations.  Would you please check & let me know if you have the records?  When we left there with Mack we were going to Fairfield to meet a seller from out of Houston area.  I bought (and still have) 2 horses that were sooooo misrepresented.  Could have bought Glory for all the money we lost on this deal. Ended up back in Forney last Saturday &  bought yet another horse that is really wonderful—15 hand palomino mare same color as Mack.   This has been a journey just trying to find 2 good trail horses.  Thank you for running an honest operation.  You give me hope that there are still a few honest ones out there!!!     Glad God kept you all safe during the storm!! Keep up the good work!!

Hi Ashely,
A friend of mine trailerd her horse over and we went on a trail ride.  He was wonderful.  He quietly crossed streams, went through deep mud, up and down  the creek banks.  We walked through some pretty high weeds and he did not mind them tickling his tummy.  I have to remind myself that he is only three.

He is a real sweetheart!!!

Karla

Hi Ashely,
The papers came today.  Thanks so much. Korey is developing quite a personality.  He is such a love.  He is really warming up to me.  He has been great, I keep forgetting he is only 3!!

I am hoping to take him to the combined test at Rosehill in Nov and maybe their show in Dec too. 

I have named in Korona de Oro for his show name and Korey for his barn name.

Take care
I will send pics soon

Hi Ashley! I just wanted to say thank you again for Bo-Bo! We switched barns last weekend and i was ready for him to be excited and hard to handle at a new place and for my other two to be really relaxed. well what i thought was exactly the opposite!! the other two were crazy and Bo-Bo just found the grass in his paddock and started eating while the other two ran around bucking and rearing showing off for the mares. he is so perfect and everything i ever wanted! i rode him two days after we got to the new barn to give him a chance to settle in, but i'm sure i could've ridden him the first day he was so good. we didn't have any issues riding and he was perfect (as always). i am so grateful and i love him so much! Thank you again

horizontal rule

Hi Ashley! Bo-Bo is doing really well up here in Massachusetts! He is getting along really well with our two other horses (even though my other one is really jealous!) I have ridden him 10 times since he came 18 days ago. I could not be happier with my new horse! i am going to take him on a trail ride through MA conservation area soon! he has gotten his first massage, which i think he enjoyed thoroughly! I wonder if he's ever had one before. I round penned him today for the first time and you were right he does know how to round pen, he was really good, so i got on him bareback and we had a nice little ride. I am going to start barrels with him in a month just to give us both some time to get to know each other before we go to work. He doesn't seem so tall or fast now even though he ran off with me the other day (and i kinda freaked out for a minute because i wasn't expecting it, but we were fine!) He is everything I have ever wanted in a horse and i could not be happier! I'll send you more photos when we start the barrels and when we go to a race I'll let you know our first time. Thank you so much I really appreciate everything you did for me! Bailey Hans

Twist of Tenino and "Bon Jovi" ~now with the Mobarak family in Aurora, TX!

Ashley,
I just thought I would send you a couple pics of Lil Tino and let you know how he is doing.  He has put on a lot of muscle and weight and is just a joy to have. Here is a couple pics of my Trainer Eric, working him in the round pen. We will start showing him in Reining and AQHA show events this spring!  He has been just the most wonderful boy ever.Boy where you right when you said to show him a little love and attention and he will love you forever. He is so willing and ready to learn something new! We took him out to a local roping event just to let him get around other horses etc, and my trainer ended up healing off of him and won first and second!!  What a diamond in the rough we found in him,
 
Bon Jovi is wonderful too, he is our big teddy bear at the stables and anybody and everybody rides him. He gets a little lazy sometimes and would much rather eat than play, but will get any job done that we ask him too. My five year old is taking lessons on him and he is is such a gentle giant.  Thank you again for my two favorite boys!! Jana

Hi Ashley...

First of all I need to thank you and Amanda for taking the time to listen to what type of horse I was looking for and then helping me find Slick. I hadn't even had him home 24 hours and we went to our first sorting. Which was lots of fun and have plans to go again. I am very excited about what Slick and I will be accomplishing together.

I will highly recommend Valley View Ranch for anyone that is looking for a safe, reliable horse. Thank you again.

Hi Ashley!

Just following up with you regarding Riggin's paperwork.  We love this horse!  My husband has started  riding him (!) and he has been wonderful.  He is very smooth, nothing spooks him, and he neck reins beautifully.  He loves people and has a ton of personality.  I just can't say enough good things about him.

Thanks for everything,

Just wanted to send you a couple of pictures of me and Dual paying around in the pasture. He has been such a blast to have! Everyone at the barn loves him, he has such a sweet, laid back personality. We've been working on barrels, and he loves to run and be challenged.

Many thanks to you and Amanda again for all your time and help with choosing my first horse. It was such a great experience for me and my family. We can't wait to see you again!

Angie Parker

horizontal rule

Dual is doing very well! My farrier loves him, I took him for a saddle fitting and everyone there fell in love with him. He has the sweetest, laid back disposition. He comes right up to me in the pasture and has been great around other horses. My three year old goes to the barn with me every day and Dual is so gentle around him, he walks very carefully when Wade is holding the end of the lead rope with me.

My very good friend (who just happens to be a trainer) is helping me tune him up on barrels. After seeing Dual the first time she fell in love with him and commented that she thought I got him for a steal. As laid back as he is, he sure gets excited when he sees the barrels! He is very patient with me- he knows barrels better than I do for sure. I am learning a lot with him.

I am very happy with Dual- he is a blast to ride and awesome on the ground- the best of both worlds.

Thanks again for everything!

Dual arrived safe and sound and is happily settling in.  I cannot thank you enough for all your help.

~now with the Helminiak family in McHenry, IL!

Hey Ashley! Hope all is well with you and your little Joel!! I'm so excited for you- boy's are so much fun! It was nice to talk to you the other day. I just wanted to send you some pictures of Brumby and Okie. They are both doing really well. We got to take them camping for 4 days in October ( it was freezing cold up in central WI ), but we had an awesome time. Brumby was pretty much perfect the whole time. Okie was nervous at first and jumped around a little, but by the 2nd day he was so relaxed. I had 4 days of just touching and messing with him. A friend a mine was riding him for a while for me because I've been busy with my baby, so I hadn't totally bonded like I wanted to with him. Now that I've been able to get out and ride and massage him he is a different horse. The massaging really changed him. He knows I'm not going to hurt him. It just so cool to see how much he has changed since we got him and how much he trusts me now. He is a keeper! My son Jimmy plans on doing little britches rodeo this summer with Brumby and some little fun shows coming up soon. We will send some pictures. Talk to you soon!

"McNally" (now know as "Rein Dance/Hidalgo") ~is a spoiled pleasure riding horse in CA!

I have been working hard as a result of the recession.  Lucky me!  I can!  Anyway,  I haven't ridden as much as I like to as a result of needing money.   BUT,  I did have Reindance with Richard Winters for training for a month.  Horse Illustrated did a spread on Richard, and guess who Richard choose to ride?  Yup!  Our Reindance!  (now called Hidalgo).  I bought you a copy and will send it to you!   Terrific photographs of a terrific horse!  Richard has known me for about 20 years, through many horses.  He told me  that Reindance is a wonderful talented horse.  Any pro would be proud to own him.  And, of course, little old me, is pretty happy and proud to own him! 

Would you please confirm your mailing address?

I love checking your horses for sale.

Hi Ashley and Amanda,

Please have a very happy healthy 2009! I know your hard work ethic will make the new year prosperous!

I love watching your web site, just to see how busy you are and what wonderful horses you represent so well.

Rein Dance's barn name became Hidalgo, in part after the famous horse and in part because of the meaning of the name; Spanish Nobility or Gentry.

We basically started training him as if he only had maybe 60 hours on him. As expected he is phenomenal. My trainer wants me to eventually transfer him to a reining show barn with (I am not sure of this name, but if you know of her you will recognize who I am getting at) Penny Girardi. I have no desires to compete with anyone other than myself. I will take him to horsemanship clinics with the likes of Buck Brannaman.

If you or Amanda will be showing in the near or sort of near future, please tell me. I have family in Fort Worth and Dallas and would love to show up to admire you. My goal is to ride like Amanda. I would be happy if I could just sit like Amanda!

Please try to remember to tell me if you are in any shows!

Much appreciation and thanks for my lovely little horse!

Joy

As you know, ReinDance arrived just fine.  I mentioned that he had a rolling fit, he must have rolled over 20 times!  But each time he shook off, ran around and threw himself down again.  When I put the halter on, he was quiet and calm!   My only concern is that I left around 3 PM and he still had not pooped.  I assume that all is well, as no one has phoned me.

Thank you for the halter.  I haven't had time to open the paper work you sent to me, thank you for that too.

What a pretty little horse he is!  I am so happy and I will make sure he will be happy too.

I so admire you and Amanda!  I realize how hard you work, and how well you do what you do.

We will keep in touch!

xxoo ReinDance and Joy

PS  thanks for this whole experience and introducing RienDance and I.  You made me feel like I was your only customer and I felt very special to you.

Hi Ashley,
Well Lil and Jammie won her horsemanship class AGAIN last weekend at an AQHA show; also got 3rd in WP walk-trot. The trainer suddenly is really into Jammie now too. Also says her lope is coming along. I will forward you several pictures taken after the win last weekend. If you ever want to post her/us on your website as a happy customer, please feel free to do so.
Julie

horizontal rule

Well Jammie isn't for sale after all...it's always a juggling act financially between two families but I think I've finally convinced them that she needs to stay plus Jammie convinced them of that last weekend...read on...
Lilli, her rider, is 13, beautiful, adopted from Russia, and her parents are divorced. I am engaged to her Dad, her Mom just got remarried. We all split expenses on the horse and usually are in agreement but for awhile, scheduling, trainer woes, and two of us getting laid off made us all question our financial obligation to the horse.
But it has all turned around now. I wanted to write you to tell you that Lilli ahd the best ride of her life last weekend and WON her Walk-Trot Horsemanship class. She also got a 3rd and a 5th in Walk-Trot WP. I think she would have won that but the judge saw her "bump" on Jammie. Anyway, we were thrilled with the horsemanship win and those placings but must brag about the fact that she also got a 6th out of 19 in Walk-Trot Non-Pro, all ages. Of course that was the show I didn't take any pictures or video!
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much we love Jammie. She is such a sweetheart. She is marvelous at shows...always loads, never creates a stir in her stall, bathes, clips, etc. all so well...just like you advertised. Her trainer isn't too nuts about her because he hates mares and I think he tumbled off a couple of weeks ago...he tells me she tossed him, but another gal at the barn saw it and said he lost his stirrup! That's his issue but we think she's as sweet as they come and so cooperative. He has had some head battles but she is learning as is Lilli and last week, she looked like the winner she was!
Over the winter, we will be working on English, which is where I think she needs to go. We are also working on Walk-Trot Trail. And hopefully, she and Lil will be loping soon. Lil just isn't ready for that yet and Jammie isn't the slowest loper but as you know, many judges now like that really slow lope that makes them look like they are trotting. We call it the "crab call" and we hate it. Jammie probably will never go that slow and that's ok with us.
Just wanted to check in and tell you how much we are enjoying her, how much we love her, and how's she progressing. We will be taking photos this next weekend at her last South Central Stock Horse Association show. She will go to one more show in October, a KQHA show here in Wichita.
Hope all is well with you and yours down there in Texas!

Hi all,
Many of you have been asking to see my mare "Jammie" and I'm happy to attach these pics from this past weekend's show.  The past two shows Lil has won her horsemanship classes and has been placing in the top 3 pretty consistently in her western pleasure classes.  It is truly a genuine joint effort between three families and our trainer (shown in picture).  This last week's win was huge since it was an AQHA (American Quarter Horse Association) sanctioned show.  As you can tell, it made one little girl pretty happy and we pooped out the mare.  Well, maybe I should say we tired out the mare!  Anyway, it's been a great summer and all the horse activities I've been a part of makes it so great to be back here in Wichita - particularly being able to show and trail ride with some of my former and many new barn friends.  We've got one show left in October right here in Wichita and then will train hard over the winter with a goal to also ride English with the horse next year.

horizontal rule

Hi Ashley,
We are going to keep Jammie...we love her too much!  We are going to try to go English next year.  If you ever hear of someone who might need a horse like her, you might keep us in mind.  She is such a sweetie, we consider her a family member :)  I will have to send you more pictures...there's a couple of not so good ones attached!  We'll be hitting our first spring show in another week!

Stay in touch!  Did you get married?

Hey Ashley

The paint mare you sold me is doing well. She takes great care of a couple of kids I have and is a real pleasure to have in the barn. I've even taught her to jump! Just crossrails...but still! Very cute. I have someone else looking now. He's about 6 foot and has western background, but just starting english. I haven't really seen any big horses out at your place, but if you get anything could you let me know? It needs to be pretty much the same as the mare. Really broke and beginner friendly. Just let me know Thanks, Shelby

The paint mare I bought from you a couple days ago has come up really nice. She babysat some kids today and she's still cool enough for me to get on and have fun. I'm very happy with her, you and Amanda. Thanks for all of your help and honesty.

This is Rachel. I bought Scooby Doo. I just wanted to let you know we are doing good. I love him so much. I never wanna give him away.
I have been working on ground work alot lately. I still have not started barrel racing but that hopefully will change this summer if my parents
will let me and if i have time.

Hey,
I just want to let you know everything is going great with Scooby Doo. I got the bit and it is much better then what I've been using. The other day I loped him around and did some sharp turns, and yes I did all kinds of halts. :) I am so happy with him though. He truly is
a awesome horse. I can't thank you enough for all the training you did with him. I have gotten comfortable enough to lope him around now, so I am ready to start training in barrels. The only problem is that it keeps raining. I want to go out there and start barrel racing, but it's slick out there that I don't want to hurt him or me. Besides the bad weather he is doing great. I could send you so pictures of how he is doing anytime you want me to. I would just have to take some. I have either been riding him, playing around with him, cleaning him, or its just been raining so much I don't really take much pictures. Anyway, he is doing great. He really loves it here and he loves his new best buddy, Oreo.
Thank You,

Hi Ashley,

Tess arrived safe and sound and calm at 4:30 this morning. We ( I woke up my son Pete) unloaded her in the street in front of my house and walked back to the barn.She was as cool as a cucumber .I was /am incredibly impressed since it was really dark out- the moon had set.Settled into her stall -sipped a little , had some hay and was relaxed. Gave the wall on good kick which I'm sure the Haffie needed- someone has to keep her in line ! Donny was terrific,called me, let me know what was going on and just a really nice decent human. This has been the best- easiest horse transaction I have ever experienced. I cannot thank you enough.

Tess is beautiful ,can't wait to take her outside and see what she really looks like AND RIDE !!

Dallas is doing really good. we are enjoying every minute we have with him, he is just like a puppy, helikes to run up and down the fence line with my dogs. he is very good with my little boy, if he cries he comes straight to him to see whats going on, the two of them love to give each other kisses, its really cute. my husband and daughter are getting to where they aren't as scared of him anymore, but i think Dallas knows they have a little fear towards him and Dallas purposely will follow them around and they will run its hilarious.. anyways i like to thank you so much for him, i really enjoy him he is alot like my horse i recently loss in January.. i hope to see y'all soon again and someday get a play partner for Dallas to play with from y'all.. again thanks for everything..

"Jack" ~now has a forever home as a pleasure horse in Reno, NV!

Hi Ashley,  I have just got to tell you how much I love Jack!!!  He is so coming around.  He is very comfortable with me and now walks up to me to put his halter on.  He has wonderful manners loves the attention and wants to be ridden.  I don't push him he just takes me (mamma) for a pony ride.  He makes all my horse work worthwhile.  He came thru the winter great.  I am so glad I found him!! Nancy from Reno

horizontal rule

Hi Ashley, rode him today he is outstanding. We are totally connecting did a beautiful slow jog trot on the buckle so to speak, I read him and he listens well. He is getting very relaxed and soft. I don't ask much and he doesn't expend any more energy than he has to. He is so what I wanted. No arguements. He is very comfortable with me as I am with him. Now for a new name. Asante means thankyou in swaheely{african} that might be it. I have to see what he thinks. Nancy

horizontal rule

He did great!! He is very responsive and willing. He seems to go with the level of the rider. We are connecting. I love the slow jog trot and of course he wants to stop when I sit down but kiss kiss and I can push him right past the stop. We will get it together literally. I really really am Happy with him!!! I do want to change his name and am having alot of trouble with that. He is so calm, kind and pleasent. He got his shots yesterday and had no reaction from them. He will get his teeth floated in a couple weeks and we should be ready to head into winter. I really like his nature, spirit, and way of going and I knew all that from watching his video! I couldn't be more happy with him!!!! Thankyou so much for making him possible. Nancy

Micah ~now with a new rider here locally in Fort Worth, TX!

Ashley,
I just wanted to tell you how much we love Micah! I have recommended ya'll to many of my friends. You do a great job in marketing the horses. I have tons of pictures of her from your website. Thanks!!
I have been taking lessons on her and learning to jump. She is the perfect babysitter that I needed. Micah loves her paddock mate (Sheza) They go through a round bale in about a week and a half. The girl loves her food!! I put front shoes on her and her feet look so much better.
I just put her on Mare Magic to see if she will calm down. She is a different horse than I bought her. She has so much more energy. I always have to put her in the round pen before I ride. I know she is a pushy big mare, I have to tell her I am the boss. My shoer also sees a big difference. Was she on any supplements or do you recommend any that might work.I would love to get her like she was 4 months ago. Please don't get me wrong I love her to death. We are learning together. I hope to send pictures soon. Thanks again Mary Collins Fort Worth

Shooter made it! He did well. He is very sweet, I got on and rode him bareback with just the halter around the property...I love the way he stands completely still. I have a thoroughbred that can't stand still for more then about 2 minutes without pawing, pacing or throwing her head all about! It's refreshing to have such a calm horse!

Treasured With Rain ~doing playdays with a young girl  in New Port Coast, CA!

Hi Ashley,
Just wanted to drop you a note on Shelly/Rain....Our whole family just loves her. Thanks so much for all your help. We'll send some info/pictures back to you all.

I have a couple quick questions if you don't mine:
When was the last time she was shoed?
I noticed, she really needs to have a good workout/turnout in order for my daughter to really control her. Also, we tried a smooth 5" snaffle bit...which didn't seem to be enough to really get her to stop and respond. Any suggestions, should we bring it up a notch with a twisted?

If you have any tips that you can remember with her that you could pass on...we would truly appreciate.

She is such a smart sweet girl...I think she has replaced me in my daughters top favorite things list.

Cheers and hope you are doing well.

The Monster Man aka: "Patriot", now called Rio and San G Pep "Admiral"
 ~Both now in Armstrong, BC, Canada!

horizontal rule

Hey,
wanted to let you know that all is going really well with admiral and rio. rio constantly tests me, but he learning i'm not going to give up my alpha position. i love how he hangs out with me no matter what i'm doing. he is so curious and i swear if he could help me clean out water tubs and muck pens he would. he's always in my face, but i love that when he's respectful. i finally found a saddle for him that fits. he's so much smaller than zippy and has a short back so i've been searching for a saddle since i got him.
i've attached a photo of admiral hanging out in the yard and zippy and rio in their paddock. they go out on pasture for about 4 hours a day, but each one gets a bit of time in the yard in the afternoon. they are great at "weed eating" the long grass around the trees.
love them both. they are great horses.
leah

horizontal rule

at long last patriot aka "rio" is home. i think i have to have a name that flows better. patriot is a nice name, but a bit hard to say so i took the middle out of it and named him rio.
he and zippy are going to get along really well. they have visited and had lots of communication over the fence. i'll give them a few days apart and then put them together. admiral is pretty indifferent to him. he would rather be with me. he is such a lovey horse.
rio got his first round pen lesson with joanne today. he's not too keen about letting her get on his right side and kicked out a few times, but she kept playing with him and he got it that she is the leader and eventually went off nice and quiet with no ill intent towards her and the flag she uses. she's thinking he's never had anyone ask him to do what she was asking, but she said he learns quick. he always returned to her at his own will when she asked for a whoa. he will be fun to work with.
he's out having his beet pulp mash right now. he's a bit thin probably from the trip. we put a stick on him today and he's 14.2. a little ribby right now, but we will fix that. i've stuck him on pre and probiotic to help him out and i've got great hay so it shouldn't be long before he fills out a bit.
will keep you up to date on his progress.
thanks for all your help.

Pumpkin ~Now jumping anything with his new owner!

Hi!
Well, it has been forever since I bought "Pumpkin" from you. His name is now Peanut due to the fact that there was already a Pumpkin at my barn. He is doing GREAT, I couldn't be happier. Him and I went through a rough amount of time for a while but we confidently got over it and now he is just amazing. I was with my friends a couple of days ago and they dared me to try a 3 foot jump on him, I was thinking to myself that he couldn't do it. For crying out loud the thing is only a foot shorter than him! Well, I tried it and he glided right over that sucker. I sent a picture with me and him doing some jumps, including the 3 footer. Sorry for not getting back 3 years sooner! Thanks a lot for him!

Hi Ashley!

I don't know if you and your sister remember me, but my mom and I flew from California to Texas to look at a horse that I could use for barrels.  That was last July of 2008.  The mare i bought was 14.3 hands sorrel her name was cici shinning tenia.  I had originally flew there to see a different horse, but came home with one that fits me better:0)  I could not be more pleased with her =)  We are doing good on the barrels and even own a Belt Buckle this year!!

Countess and Dolly ~Now with an awesome family on the beach in Acapulco, Mexico

Just wanted to drop a line and a few pics of Dolly's first experience  on the beach. Your Dad would get a charge out of our experience with my Mexican friends loading her on a trailer. They finally gave up and crossed the border using a three horse slant, because they could not load her and I guess it got ugly. Needless to say we had to drive to the Mexican side and pull the horses down ourselves, no one would touch her (she was crazy). Your Dad would have loved it, the same crew plus about 4 other experts decided to attend the festivities, which included beer. They pulled up chairs and sat in the shade while
I worked Dolly on the ground for about 30 minutes then I was ready to ASK her to enter the trailer, which of course she did not want any part of. After another 20 min she gladly entered the trailer and has not had a problem since. The bet was minimum of 4 hours I told them 1.5 hours and the actual was 55 min. Your Dad would appreciate the story so please pass it along, One for the dumb gringos! My wife Bridget is loving Countess as well. Both mares are becoming acquainted with Dunzee and it seems Countess will be the first to seal a deal, she should be ready by Wednesday.

Please pass along our regards to your folks and await a visit. How is the baby coming along?

Hi Ashley,

I thought that I would send a picture of my granddaughter and Marcus. My son in law brought her up a week ago Saturday, and we had so much fun! She loved/loves Marcus. I took her for a ride; Marcus was good as gold!! Quinn was here for a week; she is three and full of energy; we however had the best time. We played with Marcus and backed cookies, lots and lots of cookies; I think it will take me at least a week to get my kitchen back "dough" free. : ) My daughter and family live in Santa Cruz, so this was a real treat to get her for the week. My son in law took pictures of Quinn and I riding and when he sends them to me I will forward one to you.

Marcus is doing very well! I just love him more and more everyday!!! After a week of not riding him, I took him out this past Saturday for a couple of hours and he was a dream!!!!! I am thinking/hoping that he is trusting me and I can't be any happier. It was an awesome ride; on the road, on some trails and he was spectacular.

As always, I hope that you are doing well, please feel free to take a vacation here, and I look forward to hearing from you. My best to you and Amanda!

I did have a lesson on Reed Saturday and he was a good boy.  I rode Sunday and he was like a little kid.....I don't want to do this!!!!!  We worked through it and he was just fine.  I am taking another lesson with the trainer tomorrow evening and I can't wait.  She has him spinning, side passing, loping collected, trotting with his head down and collected....and a really good stop on him.  He is still learning but he is catching on really quick.  I just love him so much.

Now that he has filled out, muscled up and his coat is really pretty I get lots of compliments when I bring him out of his stall and other folks see him.  Just wait until he sheds out his winter coat!!!!  Everyone says he is so pretty!  They haven't seen anything yet! 

I will keep you posted and will send pics soon.

Sadie and Stardust Lace ~Now both pleasure/trail riding horses in New Orleans, LA!

horizontal rule

Hi there,

I hope all is well with you and Amanda. I miss coming out to Dallas, I was on a role for a while. I always check on you all through the website and only wish the best for you and your incredible business. You run an amazing show at Valley View and so many people are blessed with great horses because of your hard work. I am always raving about your stable and have sent your information to tons of people. I am surprised my uncle has not bought a horse from you yet. I am sure he will soon.
As you soon know times are hard right now. The real estate market in New Orleans has taking a big hit and my personal company is really struggling. I have been avoiding this email for a long time but feel at this point I am out of options. If I could take the economy out of the equation the last six months have probably been some of the happiest months of my life and I owe that to Stardust and Sadie. Being with them almost everyday is therapy to me and I know how much I need them in my life. At this point there is no way I can make sense of keeping them both so regretfully I am emailing you to see if you can sell Stardust for me. She has been an amazing horse and one that will make anybody she is with extremely happy. For my family she has been a trusting horse that anybody can ride. She is amazing along the levy in the middle of the city with so many scary new things around. Often we would be riding alone 15ft from a train and she always makes me feel so safe. She was the perfect match for what I needed and I know how hard that is to find. She really is a GREAT horse and many will miss her.
Having just said that I am not sure why I am selling her.:( I know I have to sell her but I would love to keep up with her where ever she goes and possibly have a chance to get her back someday.(if ever the new owners wanted to sell her) She is up to date on all her shots, never been lame, never required any special medical attention, never given me any trouble, always been perfectly healthy. I can have her transported to you all by the same guys that brought her to me.
Again, this was such a hard letter to write and I have been avoiding it for a long time but like I said sadly I am out of options. I can assure you that as soon as this economy or my career turns around I will be up there in Dallas trying to find the next perfect addition to my family. Having two horses has been a great ride and one day (soon) I know I will be lucky enough to do it again.

Please email me and let me know your thoughts about moving forward!

Take care, Kendall

*** Sadie is my heart and soul and I will fight to the bitter end to keep her in my life. I will sell my house before she goes anywhere. She is he horse I want my kids (when I have them)  to learn to ride on! ☺

Hi Ashley,

I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely adore Sadie. She is exactly what I have been looking for for a very long time. Next time you and Amanda make it to New Orleans you have got to come ride with us.

I am going to send you some pics of us riding on the levee. I have never put a saddle on her. I ride her bareback in a hack every time I go out. I have not found a saddle wide enough for her yet but she doesn't need one. What type of bit would you recommend for her. I don't want anything too harsh because she is so broke but something anybody could ride her in?

Also, do you have her regular shot schedule? The barn was asking what you all had given her while she was with you. Thanks so much for everything. She his such an awesome horse.

Take care,

Harrison ~Now an all-around horse in Houston, TX!

Hi!  I just wanted to send you a note to thank you once again for suggesting Harrison to me.  He is such a wonderful horse and has a terrific personality.  It is hard to believe that he is so mature even though he is only four years old.  Although he grew up in Canada, Harrison has now weathered a hot Houston summer and his first (and, I hope last) hurricane!  Luckily, the barn where I board him was not damaged or flooded in the storm.  Other than his beautiful bay coat turning slightly blonde this summer, he is no worse for the wear and his beautiful bay colors are finally coming back this fall!

Now that I am mostly recovered from my injures and back to riding, I have been taking him to some local shows.  This weekend we got four firsts and one second.  Harrison is such a quick learner - one he sees something just once or twice he becomes a pro at it.  I am planning on starting to work with him on reining again and also on trail riding.  One of his best traits is his versatility.  He is also the easiest horse to catch in the pasture - when he hears my voice he runs across the pasture and stands at the gate for me.  Harrison is so unique (and smart) and he is a joy to have as part of our family.

We will be back to see you someday for a "husband horse".  We just bought some acreage in Luling so that we can have our horses live with us when we retire.  So, if you come across an exceptional trail horse with "more whoa, than go" that would be a great beginner horse, please let me know.

Hickory ~Now all the way up in Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada!!

Hi!
Just a note to tell you that Hickory has arrived safe and sound. He is Canadian now.....lol He sure is tired though. It sure was a long haul for him of course. Got him in his stall and looked around and found the water and had a nice drink and ate some hay. Groomed him up nicely from all the traveling sweat and his nose was just a twitching! Will give him a day rest and just groom him and get to know him a bit more before riding him. Will probably do that on Monday. Does this wee fella got a nice petite head. My halters are all to big for him. Will buy one special for this guy.
Forgot to ask you... What kind of bit do you use on him? And when was his last worming? And his last shoeing? Also, up here in Canada we do a spur stop on our horses.. Trainers do anyways. Is there certain commands you do with him, like kisses or clucks? Just would like to do the same commands as you do. Would make it much easier on him.
Can't believe how cute he is? Nice size for me also. Thanks and have a wonderful day... Shall await your reply...

Hank ~Now with a loving family in Springfield, MI!

Hey,

Just sending you an update on Hank! We absolutely LOVE him! He has been so kind. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body!

Our friends brother is almost completely paralyzed and he said he would give anything to ride Hank. So, they put him in the saddle and Hank knew that he
was almost paralyzed because he stood perfectly still and led this man around as though he was a baby.

So, we absolutely love him! You couldn't ask for a better horse!

Talk soon,
Marilyn Wilkins

Odie ~Now REALLY enjoying his new life; both in Chama NM, and in Athens, TX!

Hi-
Hope all is well back there in TX! Odie and I are up near Chama, NM for the summer and loving the temperatures and views.
Just thought you would like to know how he and I are working out. Today we did a 26 mile ride/walk across the border of CO/NM, most of it in some of the more rugged country that I’ve been in with a horse. Let’s put it this way…..we made our own trail.
After all my years of riding horses in the mountains of Colorado, northern BC Canada, and even in the wilds of Kyrgyzstan on the border of China, I can honestly say that Odie is one of those horses who is made for the mountains and loves every minute of it. I am extremely impressed with his agility and willingness to go anywhere and try anything. He cannot seem to get enough of going hard and exploring even the nastiest places in the woods. Just yesterday I rode him with a couple other horseback friends and even after 4 hrs of uphill at 9,000 ft +, he still was not wanting to go back to the corrals…even got kind of upset about ending the ride! I don’t know what his previous owners used him for, but if they had used him like I am I doubt they would have ever sold him.
From forging a chest-high river while packing our Jack Russell terrier, to sliding down a slippery mud slope on his butt and traversing a very bad patch of deadfall timber, he is truly a joy to ride and be around. All the fresh mountain grasses he can eat, and endless trails and backcountry to explore seem to have put him in horsey heaven. Plus, the cool 45 degree nights and 80’s of the day are very pleasant too.
When I get back from my upcoming backpacking trip into Wyoming I’m going to get him used to picket lines and hobbles. I plan on making a couple solo trips with overnights and need him to be able to graze at will during the night. I would just let him be free, but am afraid he would come sniff and harass me all night because I am resting when we could be riding! In three weeks we are helping move 1,000 head of cattle into another pasture here in the CO National Forest. Based on his eagerness to get after those critters today, I could be in for a little bit of “Man from Snowy River” action going after strays. Am getting him shod with cleat shoes this next week for better traction on those steep slopes.
I am so glad that the black horse that I was interested in that day sold..…otherwise I probably would never have had the chance to meet Odie and gain a new buddy and unbelievable riding horse. Sometimes horses just have untapped potential.
Attached are a few photos of myself and friends with Odie during our big trek today. These were taken in the portion of the ride where I needed the exercise more than him! Our friends are so in love with him….the gal is totally spoiling him with treats. :-)
Please tell his previous owners “thanks” for starting him out so well, and also for not wanting to keep him (for whatever reason). Sometimes one person’s rock is another person’s diamond. He’s just a joy!
Thanks again for providing a great service to me and other people looking who are looking for their new best buddy.
Cheers,
Amy Martin

Abbey ~This awesome little pony never made it on our website; now in Ardmore, OK!

Abbey is a gorgeous little pony with near perfect conformation, she went to a very dedicated, motivated young girl.  This young lady works hard and deserves the best.  Abbey went to be a teacher, for now they want to go to some local shows for experience, with a goal of hopefully one day cleaning up in the barrels and poles.  Abbey is a top of the line pony, before being sold to her new home, Abbey was shown on the POAC circuit, and won an International title!  This is super little pony, and they are turning into a super team.

Dancer ~Now living the good life on a ranch in Lago Vista, TX!

Hello,
I just wanted to say that Dancer is doing good and is a great horse. She is in a good home and is loving her two playmates (Mate and Lonesome, both Geldings). I have sent several other people your website as I was pleased with what you had to offer when I came to look at the horses and the time you spent with us. Take care and I will talk to you soon.

Daisy ~Now a popular pony with the kids in the Garnos family in Presho, SD!

Hey Ashley,

 I had one more question about Daisy.  Do you know if she has ever pulled a cart before?  We decided to hook her up to one just to see if she would pull it the other day and she did awesome.  We had all the little ones riding in it within an hour.  We even had her loping a little around the yard.  We had a blast.  My 6yr old even had the reins and he and I were driving her around.  My dad said she must have been driven before and I was just wondering if you knew.  I bought the cart and harness out of the paper and had never even hooked it up before and she pulled it like she had been doing it for years. I might get some skis for the cart and see if she will pull it through the snow.  Take care, we are having fun with Daisy.  Cheyenne Garnos

Just wanted to let you know my kids did great on Daisy the last couple rodeos of the year. My little girl used her for barrel and poles and they all took turns using her for the goat tail tying. Just wanted to say thanks again for a great little pony. Hope she won't mind the cold South Dakota winter too much. Take care and if you have anymore playday or kids rope horses for sale please let me know!

Thank you, Cheyenne Garnos

Hi,

We will ride Daisy in a snaffle. That will probably work the best. We trimmed her feet and she looks good now. My kids are fighting over her, they like her allot! Take care and thanks allot for Daisy.

Triples ~Now in a new home in Valley Center, CA!

Hi,
I realized that I hadn't given you the awesome testimonial  about Triples that you so deserve. Thank You!! We love her. We call her Truly now because she is truly amazing!! She is one of the kindest, sweetest horses I have ever owned, we adore her! I was so nervous about buying out of state but the process was easy and WOW the payoff of owning a horse this nice was HUGE!! She lives nicely during the day in a 2 acre pasture and we tuck her in at night in a warm cozy barn. We do lots of trail riding (even lots of horse camping), she has been an amazing confidence builder for me, I just can't say enough great stuff about her, Thank You!!!

Kindest Regards,

Susan Herrera

Hi,
I just wanted to say Hi and let you know that Triples is doing really well. I have her up in training and she is getting a tune up.
Anyways, I was hoping that you still had the video clip of her and maybe the photos from the site that you could email me. My daughter loves the video and we haven't been able to play it off your site so I wasn't sure if you had the clip and you could email it to me so I could save it? Thanks for your time. She's a very sweet little mare. Once we get her all nice and shedded out and take her to her first show, I'll send you some good photos.

Kindest Regards,

Nick and Frosty ~Now pleasure horses in Lake Ariel, PA!

Hi there,

You're absolutely right-Frosty is a great mare.  I have absolutely no complaints about her!  Nick did really great at the show.  The first show he went to was a Western show and he actually was Grand Champ in the Sr. Western Horse Division and placed highly in the Open WP division.  At the hunter/jumper show over the weekend, he placed 6th out of 20 in an English pleasure flat class, which was great considering all the TB's and Warmbloods he was competing against-and that's the kind of horse that's super popular with the judges around here.  He also did two Beginner Hunter fence classes and did just wonderfully for his first over fences classes.  Everyone loves him and our trainer always raves about him.  They both are really, really nice horses!

If it's okay, let me think on Frosty for a week or 2 and get back to you for sure. We won't breed her. If you think this time of the year would be just as easy to sell her, then maybe we'll go ahead and send her to you,   What did you think was a reasonable price to ask for her?
Thanks so much and I'll definitely be in touch!

Hi there,
Just wanted to let you know that the horses arrived today in great shape.  They are all we hoped they'd be and were truly great considering they had been on the road for a couple of days, switched trailers so the shipper wouldn't have to come on a narrow back road, then came to a new place (where a stallion was out racing up and down a nearby fence.)  We're very pleased and happy with both of them!
Thanks so much for everything!!

Daphne ~Now teaching a little girl to ride  in Weatherford, TX!

Hi!
Just wanted to give you an update on Daphne. Boy let me tell you how scared I was to buy a horse on the Internet! I have never done that before not sure I would ever do that again with anyone except Valley View Ranch.
When we 1st got home Daphne bolted out of the trailer, I was like ok she was tiered of being in there. She saw the goats next door and our mini stud running up and she went mad. I could barley get her in the pasture she was running and snorting and totally freaking out. I thought oh my gosh I was lied to I have bought a wild horse. She carried on like that for the rest of the day. The goats scared her like crazy.
After the next day she calmed down and my neighbor a barrel racer rode her and she did great. My daughter rode her some and did ok but she still needs lessons. I have been riding my entire life so I tried her out the next day and boy was I impressed.
I love the way she rides. I took her down the road and she did not flinch once. There was flag poles with flags flapping, cars, trucks and trailers going by. Dogs barking and running up. She just kept her head down and kept going. We crossed a bridge with running water under it and she did not even look. Took her down to the school walked her through the parking lot up and down curbs through the play ground that has tons if weird
stuff for a horse. She did what ever I asked of her and never spooked.
We are so happy. The weather has been bad so we only rode her over the past weekend but I am sure she is the type of horse that will stay the same no matter what.
I will be looking for a horse for myself soon, just need to save up some money. I am planning on buying from ya'll again. Thanks so much. Pictures coming with better weather. Would love for you to post the on the new owners page.

Thanks Miranda, Jocelyn and Daphne

Jack Sing the Blues ~Now a drop-dead gorgeous trail mount in Burns, TN!

Hi Girls,

It's Jane Harris. I bought Jack from you in January. I am so happy with this little guy. He had some major cinching and cross-tying issues in the beginning, but I put him with a reining trainer for three months, and he is much better now - such a clown. I now have him at home, by himself, and he seems very content. I trailer him out to trail locations at least four times a week, and he is a great trail horse. He plows through anything I ask of him, and has the smoothest fast walk. I love it.
My trainer thinks I'm nuts using him only to trail ride. She loves him, and wants to show him. However, that's not what I bought him for.

I'll send photos one of these days. He's gotten really cute, and gets more and more roaning as the months go by.

Jane and Jack :))

"Maximus" ~Now a family/trail horse in Ennis, TX!

Hi there!
I just wanted to check in and let you know how Maximus is doing.  He is just as sweet as you could want!  I have ridden him quite a bit this last summer and put him into some obstacle courses just for the fun of it.  We are getting ready for a competitive trail class in January so any and all exposure has been worth it.  Also the last Thanksgiving week my 6 yr old granddaughter and her cousin (13) from California came out for a visit and to see “her” blue paint horse.  MG (as we call him) was put to the test with two little girls riding him and just being kids on horseback.  It was a joy to see him just look at them like they were little nuts and then stand quietly and have them all over him.  The little one even went out (far out) in pasture to catch him so she could ride.  He is a joy to have around and a pleasure to ride.  Thought you might like to know!
How are plans for the wedding going?
Have a wonderful holiday and I hope to hear form you sometime soon.

Emma, Mia, Sossz Sierra, and Sues Investment ~all with a nice man in Graceville, FL

Attached some pics of the girls... Am really growing fond of the crew.  Just spent the last hour or so in the lower field with the new arrivals watching them under the full moon. Sossz & Sues stick together and seem to be enjoying the company of my neighbor's tobiano gelding, he in turn seems to be showing an interest for Sossz. Sues keeps Emma & Mia (who seem to be body & shadow) at a distance. Emma & Mia are a little high strung and have been cruising the pasture steadily their hoof beats sound as one. E&M really enjoy each other's company and seem inseparable. Emma wants to nurse a grey mare but for some reason the grey wants none of it... : )   All in all everyone seems to be doing pretty good with Sossz markedly laid back compared to the others. They are all beautiful in the moonlight
