Rebel has been owned by the
same person for the last 5 years. The lady
decided to get a taller horse and it was
a hard decision to sell Rebel. He is a lovely horse
with beautiful gaits. Rebel is broke for
beginners, and he has been ridden all over Eastern Ky.
They rode him on many trails, in the woods, hills,
creeks, around traffic and trains. He has
been shown in fun shows and been ridden around many

Dawson is an ideal
family horse or a horse for a novice rider. He is
sure-footed and has a really nice gait for a
big-boned guy. Loves people and always meets you at
the fence or gate. I've got him priced more than
right. Many years of good riding ahead. Solid,
milk chocolate sabino with a flaxen
mane and tail.
"Just having fun, is what you can tell your friends when you
are riding this gal. Nice travelling mare with great looks!
Black and white tobiano with a white mane measuring 31
inches in length! Astounding!! When she is up in her running
walk and the breeze is a whistling by, her mane is out
flowing in the air and she is turning heads! Standing at
14.2, she is perfect size for a lot of folks. She wasn't
ridden much in past two years before we purchased her and
when we started riding her she had a bit of rust. Certainly
not a project horse but a horse that could use a couple of
good refresher rides to bring her back to her old form. We
are riding her several days a week now and she is responding
well and quickly. Not at all a spooky horse nor have we seen
any signs of her being anything but a wonderful
pleasure/trail horse. Priced to sell, opportunity to ride
"This absolutely gorgeous mare is
Margarita. Margarita is 6 years old and about 15.1. I bought
her back in June and have not had time to get her on the
website until now. She is so very similar in looks to my
Bullet gelding I had for many years. Her color is so very
classy. She'd be a horse I could dream about riding into an
outdoor formal event and having everyone in attendance turn
and stare upon our arrival. Wonderful disposition and great
gaits. Can go at a slow walk to a gait capable of keeping up
with most any other horses."
"We have all heard the old saying, "Now there is a pair to
draw to!" Well indeed, this pair will draw attention and
rightly so! As my long time associate said to me, "These are
the kind of horses my Daddy had when we was kids!" Here is
what he means. You can drive this pair of brothers and stop
and go inside and have a cold drink of water and Jim and
Jack will just stand there and not move a muscle. That was
the way they were trained. Trained in the mountains of
Kentucky, these full brothers are not flatlanders! Pull up a
five gallon bucket, sit down on it and shoe them! Throw a
saddle on them and you have got the best saddle horses to
come along in a hundred and fifty years. These full brothers
have been owned by one fellow since they were 3 and 4 years
old. When they were 3 and 4 years old, my associate and
farrier by occupation, rode in a wagon pulled by these two
brothers in a parade. Many a parade have these guys been in.
I am obtaining photos now of Jim and Jack in various
parades. Jim is now 9 and Jack is 10. Jack is slightly
lighter in color but everything else is nearly identical.
Height, weight and shoe size the same! Jim and Jack can be
seen in Kentucky only. There is a wagon there so a
demonstration of these brothers pulling and under saddle can
take place. Jim and Jack should be sold as a team. A
potential buyer can inspect (ride and drive) by flying into
Lexington, Kentucky, renting a vehicle and only driving two
hours. Or, fly into Nashville, Tennessee and drive three
hours. Folks wishing to drive can e-mail or phone me for an
appointment and directions. Horse that have this experience
under harness are nearly impossible to find. Horses that
have this experience under harness AND broke under saddle
like they are, are non-existent. Horses like Jim and Jack
haven't been around since the Civil War!
"Southern Art! I am not sure if this horse was named after
artwork or as a name usually referring to a male. Here is
what Wikipedia says about the word, art. "Art is a diverse
range of activities in creating visual, auditory or
performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author's
imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated
for their beauty or emotional power."
Well, however you want to go with this name Art, I can tell
you he is a very good Art. And certainly his looks and
motion while moving are a form of art. Now when I took these
videos of Manual riding Southern Art, he had only been to
his new home in New Mexico (Twin Ponds Ranch) for less than
24 hours. Unfortunately he has been stalled up for two and a
half weeks prior because of our transport company being
involved in a bad accident and we had to find a different
transport company. After that, he was on another transport
trailer for two days and then with only a short rest we had
him saddled up and trail riding. Now, let's be honest. Not
many horses could pull that off without a fuss or much more?
This Southern Art is a saddle horse and knows when it is
time to go to work and what is expected of him when asked.
Southern Art's color is beyond unique but without question
stunningly handsome. I would call his color as a milk
chocolate roan & white tobiano. His tail nearly touches the
ground and it is pure white and so thick you could hide a
basketball in it! Perhaps I should say he is a rare art
form! Stout build and able to carry a large person and gear."
" No Drama Momma is what we call her.
Ellie is her real name. Here is a great family horse. Big
enough for Dad and Mom, 15.1, and gentle enough for the
kids. Trailer her up and unload her any where you
wish....she'll ride like she has been there many times
before. At twelve years of age and consistently ridden since
she was broke at three, she is experienced and it shows. No
marish tendencies have we ever seen out of her. Most folks
today are busy, busy and don't have time to fool around with
a horse when they can finally get away and enjoy a ride.
This is why we call her, No Drama Momma. Come throw a leg
over her and let's head to the mountains. It will be an
