From Medea Maclean in Nova Scotia... "Hello Wendy, I wanted to write you a quick note to tell you how wonderful QTS Rhinestone Cowboy truly is. 'Stone' and I recently attended a big clinic in our area and he was a rockstar. Never put a foot wrong and now has a fan club lol. He is an incredibly kind and generous horse. Any issues were all pilot error lol and he is so forgiving."
Hi Wendy, Just wanted to share these pics of Gabriel taken today at his first dressage competition. He did pretty well seeing as he has only been back in work for just over a week after a busy covering season so was rather thrown in at the deep end! He is so mature looking now, big and gorgeous!! He was ridden by the girl who owns the stud where we take him to do the AI...she loves him and can't get over his amazing temperament! :)....Ellie (Owner of Chapel Farm Polo Paint Horses of Cornwall, England)
Presenting 'Salsa' (red roan tobiano filly) who was bred and exported to Ellie Kuun's Polo program (Chapel Hill Stud Farm) in England from the Spotted Fawn Paint Ranch in Montana and how thrilled we are to see her advancing in this amazing sport that is dominated by TBs because it takes such great stamina and ability in mind and body to perform. Thank you Ellie for sharing our fillies career in this new generation of PAINTED POLO PONIES....sure to be more coming in Ellie's future program with our stud Gabriel we exported to Ellie as her main breeding stallion of Polo Paint Horses.
"Salsa is in training at Ham Polo Club which is the only polo club in London. She is being trained and ridden by Will Healy. Salsa won her tournament as the BEST PLAYING POLO PONY. Will goes to Argentina every winter where he runs an established and very successful breeding operation over there and then imports a few top ponies back to the UK each year to play polo with. Ellie of Chapel Farm Stud in England will be crossing Gabriel on a few of these top playing mares (who have come over from Argentina) to produce the next generation playing ponies, with a splash of Paint of course! Will also has a 4 year old in training by Gabriel out of one of his special mares...we'll be watching!
"I am getting ready to start 'Song' of the Dove under saddle this winter. I really have no words to explain her personality. She is beautiful inside and out. The kindest and most loving filly ever. Thank-you so much for these horses, Medea"
Summer of 2017 in Germany of our special mare Timeless and her dun paint foal out of Stetson West: We had a breeding show yesterday and I showed Timeless and her new filly (BC Tru Lakota Spirit aka Haley J). Timeless was included into the PHCGâ€™s breeding book for mares (PHCG = Paint Horse Club Germany) and Haley won the filly class. She has grown quite big. Resembles her father very much. Many greetings from Germany and special regards from Timeless, Tanja
