"Our eyes tell us what a horse appears to be...
His pedigree tells us what he ought to be...
But his offspring tell us what he is!"

-Elsie Darrah


As breeders, we work to improve the breed. We select for the traits of:
Gait, Conformation, Disposition, Bloodline, Vigor, and Heartiness


Our horses are raised in a natural environment and often cover miles and miles a day- from the time they are born. We feel this helps them develop strength and vigor that will last a lifetime.

A number of horses from our breeding program are on the Field Trial Circuit:


Arrow's Sparky Tones and Arrow's Dusty aka "Hollywood" are two buckskins that draw attention when they are out with their riders, Fred and Jennifer Smith. Sparky is Fred's mount when he travels the country as a Field Trial Judge. "Hollywood" is younger and is learning the ropes. Sparky "goes all day". Most judges switch out horses. However, Fred is able to count on Sparky all day long- the type of endurance we appreciate.
