THIS is Handsome Dan...mistaken in the previous post for Gentleman Jim. They are full brothers, both registered Spotted Saddle Horses, and look a lot alike. Dan is one year younger than Jim. This picture depicts Jim back in the summer learning about obstacles...shown here learning to cross a wooden "bridge". Sometimes the hollow sound of their hooves can create a scary scenario, but both Jim & Dan took it all in stride.

This is Jim (sometimes referred to as Gentleman Jim), a 5 yr. old registered Spotted Saddle Horse gelding. Jim is naturally gaited and has a quiet disposition. He is the top colt shown sunning in the picture below.

The saddle was way too small for her, but Callie still managed to take Kiss for a spin. Then we took the saddle off & Callie had a much better time riding bareback. Unfortunately we failed to capture the bareback ride, but Callie said she much preferred that. Callie & Kiss make a good looking team! This was Callie's first time riding a gaited horse, but she & Kiss made it look as easy as it is!

This is an old picture of our two Spotted Saddle Horse geldings when they were much younger. They are full brothers & share the same, easy going attitude. The trainer saddled & rode each one within a matter of minutes after their arrival at his place. Neither had ever been 'sacked out' with a blanket let alone saddled.

This is a photo of Bella B. Walker being ridden by Mystic back in October. Bella is a double registered RMHA/KMSHA broodmare/trailhorse. Bella has done it all...from the show ring to the trail to pulling a buggy to raising babies ... all with style & a great disposition.
