|"Royal Ritz" 2005 AQHA Gelding 16hh
This guy is gorgeous from every angle and he is just as sweet as he is handsome. Ritz had a very successful
AQHA Circuit career as a junior horse with a Youth Performance ROM and Circuit Championships. He earned:
Novice Youth HUS 25.5 pts, Youth Hunt Seat Eq 12.5 pts, Youth Halter 10.5 pts, Open Green HUS 2 pts,
Open Halter 1 pt
We purchased him for my daughter to show and she moved out shortly after so Ritz has hung around here ever
since. We buy and sell horses for a living but Ritz has been one of our personal family horses which makes him
extra special. This guy NEEDS to be back in front of the judges. What a waste to let him sit! Ritz is currently
in work, slick, and ready to return to the rail. This gelding can TROT - he just hangs his head and throws those
legs out there as flat and pretty as you could ever ask for. Gorgeous loper too! He is solid as an HUS horse and
can even slow it down for a respectable go in wp if you wish. Patterns! If you enjoy doing them, this guy is a
great horse for you! In his time away from the AQHA circuit, Ritz has been started over fences and jumps a
respectable 2 3 course with changes that are coming along well. Dressage is certainly something this gelding
could excel in as well.
Ritz is as sweet a horse as you will find and a mean thought has never crossed his mind. He comes running to you
in the pasture & gets along with EVERY horse you introduce him to. He is so gentle with other horses that, as I
type this, he is babysitting a geriatric blind horse in his pasture. His ground manners are EXCELLENT and he is
perfect for the farrier as well as clipping. Ties, cross ties, bathes, sprays, trailers, tacks up quietly, longes, &
an easy keeping guy! Sound in every way with no vices of any kind. Ritz requires NO medical maintenance - no
injections, chiro, etc. He has not been pounded down the show road, used-up, or soured. Vet checks are
encouraged and always welcome.
Ritz has the kind of personality that you fall in love with. He will turn himself inside out for a graham cracker
and is always happy to see people. The thought of not having him in our barn saddens me but I also cannot stand
seeing such a quality animal just stand around.
Come out and meet Ritz in person! You will not be disappointed. He is a great mount for an intermediate or
better rider. (too many buttons for beginners!) The teenaged youth rider looking for a competitive mount on a
budget can go far with this guy!

|"Cash" APHA Registered SBP Gelding 15.1hh
(BPR Champagne Float X Breezie Bar Dancer)
This gorgeous boy is looking for a riding partner to have fun with! Cash has spent most of his life as a trail horse
and he is a great one! Rock solid on the trails, this handsome gelding does not spook, hacks out alone, boldly
crosses water, handles wildlife with ease, and has been on overnight trail rides. Cash genuinely enjoys hitting the
trails and can certainly continue his career as a trail horse in his next home. Since we have had him here, we have
been playing with him in the arena and Cash has lots of potential in speed events. This guy is FAST - very fast,
and he just LOVES to run (perhaps it is a bit of the Dash For Cash/Rocket Wrangler coming through!) We've
breezed him on the trail (see video) and this boy has a few gears to go through before he hits full speed. Breezing
this horse is not for the timid rider - your eyes will water! Cash has been patterned on barrels and he's a quick
study. We are working him slowly and focusing on technique rather than running him over and over as we want this
guy to learn it right. He is a fun horse for the advanced intermediate or better rider. He has too much speed and
too much handle for the beginner rider. Cash is sound and sane with no vices and has excellent ground manners!
|"Don't Take My Hotrod" 2006 AQHA Gelding 15hh
(Hocus Pocus Hotrod X Potentially Taken)
What an adorable youth or amateur western show gelding this guy is! Cute is the word that we use to describe
this boy - look at that face!
Rodney has been shown successfully as an open show mount and at futurities such as the NSBA World
Championship Show, MQHA Futurity, and NEISCA Futurity (2010 Champion). This guy is a little western
pleasure professional and is well started in showmanship and horsemanship as well. His lead change is also
coming along nicely!
Rodney is a very honest show horse for your youth rider. Easy to pilot, Rodney will go around the pen with or
without spurs - you don't have to be a mechanic to get this little guy looking good on the rail! No spook, no
buck, no nonsense under saddle. Rodney rides the same inside the pen and outside. Not only is this gelding a
doll under saddle, he also has super ground manners.
Rodney has great stall manners and is equally happy turned out. He pastures well with both mares and
geldings and is the first to come to you in the pasture. Catch him where you find him every time! PLEASE
NOTE that when stalled, Rodney does occasionally crib. It is well-controlled with a cribbing collar and he
does NOT crib outdoors.
This gelding is slick, fit, and ready to show! Bring your youth rider out and take him for a spin - you will not
|"Shining Little Cat" 2011 AQHA Mare 14.3hh
(Little Cat Olena X JCM Shining Belle)
This is one spectacular little mare and the possibilities are wide open! "Dunny" is my personal horse and
parting with her was not in my long-term plan; however, our new farm has us busier than we ever imagined
and this mare is far too talented to hang around in the pasture waiting for me to have the time to take her
out. My loss is your gain! This is a sensible young mare that rides wise beyond her years.
Dunny has not been pushed and is ready to get serious with her next owner. She has an excellent foundation in
reining, has been started on cattle, and has hacked out on the trails for good measure. This is an easy and
uncomplicated mare to get along with and ride (and quiet enough that we let our 5yr old grandson ride her!) If
you are looking for a well-bred, pretty, and talented mare, here she is!
Dunny's sire is a son of High Brow Cat (who needs no introduction) and Bonnie Tari, an NCHA 3yo Open
Futurity Finalist and the dam of earners totaling over $136,000. Little Cat Olena has NCHA earnings totaling
$55,300 and an impressive resume that can be seen here: http://www.santarosaequines.com/littlecatolena.htm
Dunny's dam is a daughter of Moorehouse Ranch's Seven S Shining Gold who is sired by none other than the
great Shining Spark!
Under saddle, this mare is as honest as they come. She has a soft easy lope and speed when you ask for it.
Her spins are coming along well as are her rollbacks. She has a great stop, a good mouth, and is SMART!
Started on changes. On cattle, Dunny is sensible and quiet in the herd. She has been worked on them slowly
and has never been pushed. This mare enjoys cow work. We will try to get a video of her on cattle soon (we
do not have our own cattle so must haul out to practice). Dunny's under saddle career has included a fair bit
of trail riding to keep her fresh and she enjoys nothing more than riding out into water!
This mare is sound and sane with no vices of any kind. Vet checks are welcome. Dunny is currently in work and
will remain there until sold.
|"Rupert" 5yo Grade Pinto Gelding 14.3hh
Rupert isn't the fanciest horse in the barn but he sure is a cutie and such a good boy! You will never have to
chase Rupert when you need him - just appear at the gate and he will come running! This flashy boy loves to
trail ride and he is great at it. He is not looky or spooky and genuinely enjoys hacking out. He handles new
things sensibly and will follow his rider's lead when faced with a new challenge (see him venture into the pond
in his video!) This good-natured gelding is entirely traffic safe and will walk/jog/lope roadside without
hesitation as traffic passes. In an effort to expand his resume a bit, Chris has started throwing the rope off
of Rupert and he is handling it like a pro! While he may never see the inside of a show pen, Rupert will make
a great using trail companion for many years. He is a youngster at 5yrs old and very willing to learn new
things! Sound, sane, no vices of any kind. Rupert is low in the pecking order in a herd situation and has been
turned out in a mixed herd of mares and geldings. He is content turned out or stalled and has good stall
manners. Ties, cross ties, clips, bathes, tacks up quietly. We will continue to trail ride him and practice
roping with Rupert until he is sold!
***Our apologies for the lack of great photos of this boy. With the combination of Rupert's large amount of
white, our North Carolina red dirt, and rainy weather, getting him photo session clean has been a challenge!
