training, talent, and discipline. We work hard to be fair to buyer and seller. While
we're not giving our horses away, we also will not take advantage of a novice.

2013 AQHA filly
Smart Idea (x SmartLittle Lena) X Pyne Tari Doll
Uncomplicated, no-drama talented filly is just waiting to be someone's dreamhorse. Amazing disposition and trainability, hallmarks of all her dams offspring. One of the easiest horses I've ever started. She's the real deal, super soft in the face and body, with lots of relaxed forward. Scopey and a supreme athlete. She's been started correctly in an age and developmentally appropriate consistent program. Bold, brave, and willing to approach and go over and thru anything. She's been learning to carry herself and use her body, follow her nose. She just kind of trains herself and knows how to make her job easier for herself. I wish they were all like this. Has never had her head tied, has not been forced into a shank or curb bit, accepts leg pressure quietly. No fussing with head, no spook. Ties, stands for farrier,loads, leads, hauls, etc etc etc. Truly an athletic filly who is ready to go get it done and live up to the potential of her excellent, proven cutting/reining bloodlines. Her sire, Smart Idea, is an own son of Smart Little Lena and Peppy Petitie. Peppy Petite is an own daughter of Peppy San Badger, and she also was an NCHA earner of $106,928.28 and producer of nine foals, six of whom earned $184,490.37. Smart Idea is an NCHA money earner of $16,758.41 and procuder of 33K with VERY limited offspring.
We also have her 2015 sister, 'Betty' for sale (listed below). Betty is very, very similar to Corkscrew and will likely be another easy, easy, easy horse to train. Only one of these fillies will sell, we'll keep the other one.
Offered for your consideration: 12 year old 13.1 ½ hh (53.5 inches) dark bay medium gelding pony. Kind, willing, honest, loves trail, jumps, obstacles.

Takes great care of the beginners, loves to do all the things the advanced kids (and his adult trainer) can do. This pony loves having a job and has excelled at everything he’s done. Ideal home would include a talented and dedicated child in a show barn with a good trainer and lots of opportunities for Handy to continue to grow with his own special child. Sky’s the limit with this guy. All-around potential, is a bold and honest jumper, will slow down for the WP and the timid kids, will kick it up for the bolder rider. Will remain in training until placed in the right home. Please check our website for more information about our program, sales policies, and this special pony. Serious inquiries only.

AQHA Reining/Cutting breds available for consideration:
This is a list of our unstarted or lightly started reining/cutting bred horses that are available for sale. There is nothing wrong with any of them. I simply can start only so many of our own horses every year, and we truly put names in a hat to decide which ones get done. We've cut down on breeding until we get all of these guys and gals well started. Meanwhile, we're willing to sell them at fair prices to homes where they will have a job. They're all very people-friendly, love to have something to do, and don't like standing around. We're working on getting pictures. Don't be afraid to ask for pictures of one that catches your eye, that will motivate us to move it to the top of the list. We have pics and videos of siblings of many of these horses, please ask!
