Wonderful for the rider that wants and uncomplicated horse to bring along. He is NOT spooky and super gentle! Great with cars and on the roads with cars and traffic!

Marcoli is one of those hard to find horses! He has movement, looks and a fabulous disposition! He is wonderful on the trails even though water and super quiet.

This impressive gelding will turn heads and make everyone jealous.

Marcoli is a gentle giant. He is 3 years old and is a mentally stable guy. He already stands 17 hands tall. He is easy going but has BIG gorgeous gaits. He is a good looking horse with his loud Pinto markings and beautiful bay color.

This horse will be a dressage riders dream. He is eager to please, forward, gentle, kind, not spooky, BIG and gorgeous!

Yes, he is a quiet guy. Mellow minded and not jumpy nor freaky. He is an old soul. He is still young being coming 3 years old but has had such a good basic start that he is use to many, many unique and unusual things. He was started driving last summer. Started out driving double then when he was accustomed to driving on the road, past traffic, mailboxes and other farm places then he was started driving single. He has plowed the fields, harrowed the hay, raked the hay, spread the manure and whatever any other chores were needed done. He was treated kindly, firmly and fairly. He really seemed to enjoy all of the tasks.

After driving single, he was started under saddle. No bucking nor antics. He walks away from home happily and back to the barn calmly. He has a good basic walk, trot, canter on a loose or guiding rein. He never acted up and had very nice self carriage. He stands 16.3 hands now but is still maturing and needs to fill out. He is going to be an amazing looking horse (more gorgeous then he already is) and impress everyone that sees him on his good mind and good looks.

Would you like a WELL ROUNDED horse? One that can ride, drive and trail ride? This is what we offer! We have a trainer that starts our horses the right way. She teaches them the natural horsemanship way. She enjoys helping the horse learn in a gentle and patient way. Sarah is an amazing trainer that teaches the basics to our young horses in a patient yet firm way. She asks then tells. She gets happy forward, soft and responsive youngsters when she is done. She teaches them to move the forehand, haunches and middle. What straightness is and how to lift their shoulders. They understand and retain what they learn. They learn self carriage NOT being pulled into a frame. She then gets them lightly started in the arena and then they do a LOT of trail riding. She rides them out alone and with others. She rides them through cattle pastures and through low creeks. She wants them to learn that riding is FUN and interesting. We want you to have the best minded horse possible! This gives them a nice rounded start. You can take them on and finish them.

Mindy is a long time breeder of show dogs and horses. She understands the need for wonderful structure for excellent movement. Quality mares are selected to be bred to exceptional stallions to produce outstanding prospects.

Our foals are raised as naturally as is possible. The foals are allowed turn out 24/7 and are living in a herd. We live on a busy road with many semi's and cars whizzing by their pasture. They learn not to pay attention to the noise and movement. Many of the foals are taken in parades, to the county fair to be on exhibit in the FFA barnyard, at the town festival for display for the FFA and some even go an trail rides with their mother and get exposed to all sorts of things that a horse should see. Our foals are imprinted at birth, trained to handle their feet, clip, tie, load in the trailer and just see the world in general. They live with a llama,sheep, and occasionally hogs and cattle so they are accustom to many different animals in their environment. Our babies are visited by us many times during the day and handled daily. They rarely get put in a stall and are usually out on pasture in a herd with mares, foals, yearlings, and our Friesian stallion. They are all happiest when kept this way and they are allowed plenty of room to stay out of trouble but allowed to understand how a horse should behave to live in a herd. (No hot house foals at our facility). Our babies are friendly and outgoing yet respectful and gentle as are our mares.

We breed for an excellent amateur horse meaning they are extremely naturally talented yet not hot headed or minded. We want the professionals and amateurs to come and purchase our youngsters and be able to bring them along easily and be able to go up the levels without stress on horse and rider. Who needs a freaky horse?? We all want a good minded, kind, loving and biddable mount! Come see our website. It is FULL of good photos and video that show our horses. We have horses that are BIG movers!!!
You will see videos, photos and with a request we will send even more. Winter photos are not usually taken although nearly current photos will be sent upon request.

You will be impressed!
