Farrah is a wonderful mare. Super sweet personality. Beautiful buckskin dun color, with no white on her. Sire is a registered quarter horse and dam is a Morgan. Stands 14.2h perfect for the child or rider who wants a ride closer to the ground. Beautiful stocky build. Excellent on the trail even with the confident beginner. Great ground manners and over all easy to handle. She would be an excellent family horse as she loves every one and has been around and ridden by kids.

Duke

Duke, FRITZI’S EL NINO  AQHA #3667542, is a great family trail horse. He has been owned by the same owners since he was just a baby. 1998 model and 15.1H. Hes been used mostly as a trail horse, he will take you where ever you want to go. Great weekend horse because he doesnt mind sitting then just having fun time a day or two a week. His owners have used him for lessons and to run gymkhana on nothing serious just play days. He loves to please and has that "been there done that" attitude about everything. If your looking for a horse that your whole family can enjoy and do all around with then Duke is a great choice.

Lady is a beautiful mare. 5yrs old and started under saddle. She is still very green and is currently in training. Shes a sweet mare and with more time would make a wonderful mount for the small adult or child. Lady measures 14H. She has been bred to the Friesian Stallion Zander for a 2015 early summer foal. Maybe spots, maybe not on the foal, but it sure will be fun to find out. Regardless the foal will sure be a looker

Ryan

  photo Ryan8_zps9bde7584.jpg

 

Ryan is a 4 year old, classic Gypsy Horse with a gentle, friendly, wants to please temperament. He will probably end up around 14.3 to 15 hands. He has big drafty bone, loads of hair, the desirable short back and nice head. He is a Lion King grandson. His dam is from Clononeen lines and his sire is LK Legacy (Luka). We are trail riding him now and he is calm and safe. Hes been out in the mountains and down to the beach, even in the water. He is well mannered and respectful, stands for farrier, loves handling. The trainer was impressed with Ryan's ability to collect and move and commented that his physical ability is well advanced for his age and stage of training. He is at the perfect age to start in any direction you'd like to take. If you'd like the classic Proper Cob, flashy and showy, great for riding or driving, then consider this handsome boy.

Cash

Cashmere or "Cash" is a beautiful Reg. FHANA Friesian mare. Eight years old, 15.2h. Well bred, sired by Wander 352, who produced the qualified stallion Doiatsen, who is also known for his ability to throw a lot of mane and tail. Her Dam is the grand baby of Mark 232. She was trained to drive but has not been hitched up for over 2 years so would need a refresher course. She is being ridden several times a week to keep her going well, confident advanced beginner/intermediate rider. Can go Western or English, we mostly ride Western but she has had lots of English training in the past. She has had one foal, by Spike 450. She has the bloodlines to produce stunning, conformational correct offspring. Sweet natured, great temperament and disposition. When asked she has power and energy. She trailers great, clips and stands for the farrier. Not yet shown at Keuring, she does however, have the potential to make Ster.
Just bred to our FHANA stallion "Raaf"

Maggie

 photo IMG_1317_zpsb826ba40.jpg

 

Maggie is a wonderful sweet 2002 mare. She stands 16H. Sweet as can be, take her and play in the arena or out on the trail. Ride right off the ranch or trailer to the park, she loads and rides like a dream. Maggie is a beginner level ride mare, owned currently by a mom and daughter duo who before owning Maggie were brand new to horses. Maggie rides mostly western, has done a few gymkhana play days. She has also been played with in an english saddle and even taken over a jump or two. Even though it has been a few years she was also started with the basics in driving, the foundation is there she would just need someone to finish her in the harness. She loves to be groomed and to get attention, always waiting for you at the gate. Easy to handle and tack, great for the farrier and vet. 

 

another return client to the Mitchell Ranch, Thank you Gail for your purchase of Maggie she is a wonderful horse and I know you will really enjoy her!!
