Imperial Vision – 2003 TB Gelding

Vision is a lovely, 2003, 16 hand bay TB gelding. He was too slow for the track and was retired in 2007.  He had several years of let-down time as a pasture pet before he came here to find his next career.

Viz is a beautiful mover with a good brain and a kind heart.  He is willing and obedient, but us not above getting a little frisky with too much vacation time! He has been started over fences and with lateral work.  He is currently not in regular work (through owner’s limitations-no fault of his own),thus currently asking $1250.00.

Viz’s paparazzi needs to get on the ball and take some current video!!! Until then, here is Viz’s  introduction to related fences:

This is Viz’s first introduction to jumping, taken a few days after he arrived.  We were thrilled with his rolling canter and easy rhythm, which has only improved with schooling!

Our working student fell in love with Viz on sight.  This is maybe his third ride since coming out of retirement:

They moved on into the field without skipping a beat:

We are absolutely crazy about Angus, our 6 year old, 16.1 hand Shire-TB! With his great mind, cloud-like gaits, and storybook look., what’s not to love!

Friends leased our TB Deva’s Delight, now known as Angel’s Gift. They bred her to the breathtaking registered Shire, Knutsford Edward. Thus came Angus into this world. When they found they couldn’t keep horses any longer, we joyfully welcomed him home!

Angus has the sweet personality and trainability of his mama, and his daddy’s power and charisma. His groundwork and long-lining are solid.   He has been lightly started under saddle.  Even before he was officially “started,”  Angus came along for many of our off-the-farm adventures where he has learned to trailer quietly, to wait calmly, and to focus on his person though the chaos of the show grounds. This gorgeous youngster is becoming quite the worldly gentleman… and he never fails to attract an admiring crowd!

 

Everyone Loves Angus…even Argent the barncat!

Even as a youngster, Angus was irresistable!  In this photo I’d brought him in for a trim… and couldn’t resist hopping up on him for a bareback ride around the paddock.

Enjoy this clip of Angus’ sire, Knutsford Edward:

FireStorm – 2003 RPSI cross mare

Updated 9/29/2012: Congratulations Tim on your awesome new horse; and congratulations Stormy on your incredible new life 🙂 We hope to be hearing lots of great stories about both of you in the coming years!

——

Stormy: 15.1 RPSI cross filly mare,  born 2003. Chestnut with lots of chrome. Her personality is as flamboyant as her presence! Her grandsire is Starman, Anne Kursinski’s fabulous Olympic showjumper.

Stormy Trotting

Stormy has a strong foundation, including natural horsemanship groundwork, longeing, and ground driving.  She was started under saddle as a 4 year old, but we would definitely recommend a refresher as she has not been in work. She loads, bathes, etc. Stormy’s story reads like a fairytale. She is looking for the right person to live out her happily-ever-after!

Deva’s Delight: 16.1 1/2 grey TB mare, 12 years old.

Deva’s Delight: 16.1 1/2 grey TB mare, 12 years old. Dev is a total sweetheart, with a willing disposition and cloudlike gaits. Like many grey horses, she has benign melanoma under her tail and behind her jaw, which do not interfere with her happiness or ride ability. She is an easy broodmare and a wonderful mother (the photo on our homepage is Dev and her filly, Sky, born on Mother’s Day!) Dev is a delightful ride for a soft, knowledgeable rider.

Congratulations to the Wenner family of Harpers Ferry, WV.

May she bless your family as much as she’s blessed us!
