The Spotted Saddle Horse can trace its roots back to the history of horses that escaped from ships as they crashed on our shorelines. These horses were often spotted, naturally gaited and possessed the strength and stamina necessary for war use. By the end of the Civil War, many imported "gaited" types of horses were present in the United States. Selective mating of these gaited horses with the spotted horses resulted in the production of the smooth-gaited, colorful horse that came to be known as the Spotted Saddle Horse.
Chloe is a lovely 10 year smooth riding grade spotted saddle mare. Racks, but can also be gathered up for a wonderful trail quarto/largo type of gait. Flashy and loves trail rides. Does need a confident rider with soft hands. But her gaits are solid. She will lead or follow. Not competitive. Sound, no vices, loads easily, clips, bathes, ties some ground typing training. We have had her for 4 years now and she has really matured. Comes to you in the pasture, can live outside 24/7 or has wonderful stall manners. She has a soft mouth and responds to cues easily. Not too much white, so easy to keep looking pretty. She is an easy keeper, not special diet or maintanence. Barefoot with strong healthy hooves. Does not need shoes to gait.
Jag AKA Ringos escape
Sinatra (aka Ringos Escape) is a fancy marked Black and White Spotted Saddle Gelding with the most Stunning Blue eyes! Was shown previously, but is now on the trails.
8 years old and still a little unfocused, but he is learning fast with training to find that work ethic and handle everything. Stands to mount, dismount. Ties and cross ties, clips (even his ears easily), works well with the farrier, vet and dentist. Clean legs, soft mouth. Easy keeper. No allergies 15+ hands and filling out to be a nicely built guy.
Has energy but not a speed demon. Fancy head nod at his flat and running walk. Smooooth canter.
Was shown shod, but has been barefoot for the summer and with his lovely shaped hooves, his gates are natural and smooth.
Price is negotiable if he is sold fast. The more training and exposure, the more he costs.

OUR SPOTTED COIN
10-20-06 TWHBEA Gelding. 15 hands, light build, beautifully smooth gaits!!! He was recently gelded and was never bred so he has lovely manners about being around other horses. Easy to ride. Not hard to handle, but a little loud sometimes...lol. Working on his flat walk, but his rack can't be beat for smoothness. I rode him after a year of no riding and he was just about perfect. No buck, or rear, or become hard to handle. Actually he neckreins almost a good as a reining horse. His owner is a lovely older woman that lost her husband last year...and this was his horse. They trail rode all over and that was when he was a stallion! Ties, loads, bathes, works well with the farrier, vet and dentist.

Mercedes is a big well built 16 year old TWHBEA/Racking/SHBEA/Spotted Mountain black and white mare. Yes, that is 4 different registries....think of the breeding possibilities.

Some neckreining & leg pressure training. Not spooky. Has shown and trail ridden. Great Ground manners. Clips, loads, bathes, ties, cross ties. I have ponied off of her, ridden her bareback - even at the Florida State Fair....around those rides that make some horses crazy spooky, not her! She got comment after comment on how beautiful and striking she is. And she is the EASIEST to care for white horse I have EVER had. She can roll in a mud puddle and come in the next morning bright white!!! I have witnesses!!! Look for the videos of her with an umbrella and long tarp dragging behind her. Even changing with another horse while mounted! On youtube.com look up my screenname horsewmn1. There are a couple of them.

PEPPERS KID ROCK
Kid is a coming 13 year old Reg. Spotted Saddle Gelding. Right at 15 hands. This guy has been owed by the same couple for over 10 of those years. He has been amateur field trialing and trail riding consistently for that time. Light going when he was young but been pretty steady with it as a career. He has a long strided flat walk and rack and a lovely canter. Neckreins, used to guns shooting, dogs running all over, ponied and being ponied, tieing out, camping, good with other horses. Ridden with a non confident rider out on these adventures also. The only reason he is for sale is he is too slow for the owners needs as a field trial judge and training and he doesn't want to over work his main horse. Goes thru water, parks out, easy mouth, some voice commands. Don't miss out on this guy!!! He is easy to ride and doesn't need someone who has a lot of experience. Nice steady mover that is calm and pretty much a baby sitter.
