Shadows Premium Blend, a 2008 registered Missouri Fox Trotter. ‘Premium’ is an smokey palomino gelding offered for sale. He is 14.2 tall, but he thinks he is taller. Premium is gaited and his color is phenomenal. You really need to see this horse in person to appreciate him.
Premium spent 30 days this spring in Stacey McCoy’s advanced training program with outstanding results. Then he spent the summer carrying his owner over miles and miles of trails. He is honest and willing on the trail, though a little fast as many gaited horses are. He is familiar with water crossings and bridges.
“Jackson” is a 2014 15.1hh smokey buckskin registered Quarter Horse.
Stacey bought Jackson as a 2 year old and developed him into the steady Eddy he is today. He has a relaxed walk, nice trot and canter, all with nice long strides. Jackson is athletic and could go in any direction you like. He would make a great hunter pony or a trail horse. He is very quiet on the trails and calm around traffic, crosses water, bridges, etc. Stands for farrier, grooming, etc. Loads and waits patiently on the trailer… this gelding has the manners of your favorite horse. You know, the horse that is a pleasure to have in your stable.
Jackson has the personality of a seasoned been-there-done that horse. He is calm and level headed. Jackson would make a great horse for a beginner. He is sensitive to the aids and responds well without being overly sensitive about his surroundings. This is a gelding that has been started right, with respect given to his growing body and brain. He is still young, and sometimes shows his goofy, teenager side.. but never by misbehaving. He likes to pick up things with his mouth (which I find adorable) and still very curious about the world.
“Soapy” is quite the looker! He is a very stout 16.2hh and is a stunning dapple grey gelding. He is a registered Quarter Horse.
Soapy is green, with consistent walk/trot and some canter under saddle. He is extremely athletic and needs a rider who will put him to work. He has good ground manners and stands for grooming, bathing, and picks up feet, etc.
More information, pictures, and video will be uploaded shortly.
Superman is a solid black 6 YO Registered Tennessee Walking Horse offered at $4000. This gelding stands very nicely built at 15.1hh. He has a more stocky build than most TWH we see, and is well muscled to carry you over whatever terrain you want. He is naturally gaited, and his gaits are smooth and easy to ride at any speed you choose. He will happily walk all day if that is what you want to do, but also can get his energy up for a spirited ride if you change your mind! We mostly ride non-gaited horses here but have really enjoyed working with Superman, he is quite the character.
Superman has been in Stacey’s training program for 60 days, and has a solid foundation. He has been ridden extensively on the trails and does well. He is barefoot and remains sound despite the heavy work of the last few months. He has come far since he started with Stacey, gaining confidence every day.
He is extremely affectionate and really enjoys human interactions. He is sensitive, paying close attention to his human, wanting to please which makes grooming him enjoyable. Superman has lovely ground manners and really is a sweet horse. But being a sensitive horse, he is not quite ready for a beginner. His current owner was hoping to use him for police work, but decided Superman wasn’t going to cut it as a police mount, so we are helping her sell him.
Avi is an adorable 2010 chestnut and white grade paint. This 14.2hh gelding is offered for sale at $6500 (negotiable to right home). His naturally very forward. He has 3 great gaits. Avi is sensitive to seat and leg cues, and is developing really good control over his shoulder and back legs. He has been in consistent work for over a year now, no lameness issues. He is mostly trained on the flat, with lots of long trail rides. Jumping fundamentals have been added to his training program once a week starting in Oct 2017. He loads and hauls well, stands for grooming, bathing, farrier.
This gelding is very forward, and soft in the contact. He is still learning to relax and trust the hand, he was extremely above the bit when he came to us. But he is learning to work over his back and developing the muscle to carry himself. He has good conformation, beautiful feet. Has gone barefoot, but is currently in front steel shoes. Despite his crabby ears, I have found that he actually likes to work and tries hard for me. He greets me when I come to the gate and follows me around the barn yard. He is relatively unflappable hacking on the trail, and very sure footed. Crosses water, bridges, banks, rides well alone. Walks, trots, and lopes on loose rein on the trails.
He has a natural talent for jumping, there is no stop in this guy – very brave. I highly recommend him as a foxhunter, trail horse, jumper, or eventer. We are going to be taking him to a few local schooling shows. Look for us out and about. I will happily give a lessons to introduce you to him, he is a great little mount, with a fun personality.
As you can see in our pics and videos, Avi needs someone his size. If he had a little more size on him, I would keep him for an event prospect. Come and meet this fun pony – email Amanda@acf.runruffian.com or call 706/338.1358.
Stacey is a great teacher and she will take you gradually from where you are in your horsemanship to be able to do things you think you cannot do.
Most importantly, Stacey’s goal is to help keep you safe on your horse by helping you with control. I mainly trail ride and when I have a problem with my horse on the trail, I tell Stacey, she listens carefully, and then she shows me how to solve that problem. She even goes out on the trail with me when needed to work on the problem. She adapts her lessons to what you need with your horse, not to a predetermined lesson plan.
I am so very grateful that I am taking lessons from Stacey. If you want to be a better team with your horse, Allison Creek Farm is the place to go.
