Vanilla      Grade Quarter Horse         Age 8    Mare   Cremello   $4,600.                #3

Vanilla is a super nice 15.2 hand  8 year old grade quarter horse Cremello mare. Vanilla has been showing for the last 9 months or more. She has competed all winter at 2’6 and 2’9 show jumping with a teen rider. In March she went to California for more jumping exposure and schooling opportunities. We started in Reno with Fox hunting, then to a 3 star jumping course in California where we asked her to jump obstacles at 3 foot or bigger with water, ditches and brush, then we traveled to the coast spending a day on the ocean and loving the waves, we finished our California trip with a 4 star jumping course.  Vanilla has done amazing in her training and showing but we have to say that this mare loves to trail ride and go slow. She has experience with kids and is a smooth horse to ride. Vanilla has also had 3 babies already and every one of them is either palomino or buckskin. She is a true color producer for any breeding program. Vanilla came off of a ranch in Challis Idaho where her younger years were spent as a pack horse and trail horse.  Please come check her out and take her for a ride at Stall #…..47 .

Would need work on his canter for bigger shows.  The only reason I am considering selling this amazing boy is that I recently has back surgery and he is not getting the attention he deserves.  I will be picky where he goes.

Kustum Moon Deck   APHA       Age 13   Gelding     Bay Overo Paint    $7,500     #23

   Flash is a super nice registered paint gelding standing at 15 hands. Flash has been there and done that when it comes to show jumping and 3 day eventing. He is going to be a great mount for any level rider but really  a huge asset for kids or for the older amateur riders. He was used this winter for beginner lessons and was great with walk, trot, canter and cross-rails. However in March we decided we needed to put him in the trailer for our trip to California. Our trip consisted of Fox Hunting in Reno NV, schooling a 3 star jumping  course near the California coast, taking a day to actually ride on the ocean and get in the waves, and then another 4 star jumping course in Fresno California. Flash did all of this with different riders and experience levels every step of the way. He is one of a kind for travel, showing, and just being part of the gang. He will handle the most advance riders but will easily be a beginner safe guy for any kid no matter how young. Flash has had experience and mastered show jumping this winter at 2’3” and 2’6” then in California we asked him to do 3’ fences and water jumps that only the bravest riders do and he did it all with a 9 year old as his captain. This horse has so much to give and will do it without any argument.  He would be a great mount for anyone wanting to do anything from western and 4-H to English and 3 days eventing. Flash is also amazing on the trail rides and in any group situation whether it is slow for trails or drill teams that would require some speed. He is game for it all.  Come check him out at STALL #….. 48
