We’ve been hauling him to local ranch horse shows in our area, and he’s placed first or second in the green horse classes at each one, and earned green horse high point of the day at the most recent show. Walk, jog, lopes, getting his extended gaits and transitions little by little, has simple changes and his flying changes are getting more consistent, great little stop on him, he is soft in the face and getting softer with each ride, turn arounds are started and are coming along. He’s going to become a handy little horse with more time and in the right hands.

Apache is the horse that made Caitie aware of the concept of horsemanship, and not just “riding”. She got him when she was 17 and he was 4, he was her graduation present from high school and he was very green and demanded much more of her than any other horse ever had at that time in her life. Apache could spend the rest of his life here and we am fine with that, however if the right person who is wanting to learn more is out there for him we cannot see him being a pasture puff just yet. He is sound and has many years of riding left in him. Since we’ve owned him he has taught us so much, and has taught many of our past students how to ride and be better about their horsemanship through lessons and summer camps that we used to host.
Possible lease opportunity
This colt has had 90 days of riding, the last 60 being consistent. He is talented and smart, and does have a motor. He is going to be started on cattle this week (week of April 24, 2017) and he’s bred to be cowy. He is green and is still learning the ropes, but man he’s athletic and is a cool mover. Will make a great working ranch horse during the week, and will earn those points at the stock horse competitions on the weekends.
"Fireball" 2015 EMM graduate, BLM paperwork says he is a 2010 model, he is titled, was gathered from Desatoya, Nevada. Fireball is an incredibly broke mustang, and he is honest, but he is a fearless rocket and is not for the faint of heart. He will stroll through the pasture to check the cattle or go quiet down the trail, but if you ask him to do something be ready because he will do it and will do it with promptness.
Apache has been shown in numerous open horse shows, Western and English, by Caitie, and by advanced beginners and intermediate students. He has also been trail ridden extensively here in Texas and in the North Georgia Mountains. He’s been hauled all over the place; we’ve had him at play days and tons of clinics since we’ve owned him. He is not the fanciest trained but he sure is a kind, broke horse and goes right where you point him. Apy gets his leads easy even when the rider doesn’t help him, smooth walk/trot/lope, a real honest and “steady Eddy” type horse. He would make a great mount for the advancing beginner to intermediate rider who is looking to learn more, maybe start some open shows, and get better in their horsemanship. Apache has always been an easy keeper, no lameness issues. His face does sun burn in the summer months, but he wears a mask or sunscreen well.
Has a slick flying lead change, turn arounds, stops, walk, jog, lope, credit earning extended jog, he is fun to jump, excels at ranch trail. He’s been ridden and shown English and Western, recently won overall highpoint at a local ranch horse show in the open division. He does have slide plates on right now, we ride him in a half breed and he’s great. Fireball has worked cattle and he eats that up. He’s been Elliot's main horse since we got him for the makeover in 2015, and in the last year and half Caitie has started riding him quite a bit as well. He’s done a lot and he is so broke, no buck--he is consistent, quick and gritty.
