Calypso is feminine, correct, and a powerful mover with three quality gaits. Granddaughter of Contucci. Sensitive and soft, extremely bold/game, willing, and honest. Smart, smart, smart and willing. She WANTS to jump and figures out the technical stuff faster than I can. Both natural and confirmed lead changes, nice transitions. Plenty of scope – she’s currently schooling 2’9″ courses but has done 3’3″ and has plenty of room for more.
Her personality is people oriented, meet you at the gate, and she likes to work. Calypso is the type of horse that wants a true partner to take through the levels and explore the world. Good enough brain and temperament for an amateur, enough talent and ambition for a pro.
She is extremely brave under saddle and loves hacking. She foxhunted this season – third over rough terrain and then stood calmly on a loose rein waiting for the huntsman to gather the hounds. Crosses water and ditches. Was great with the hounds. In December I rode her from the farm to a schooling show – 6 miles and it was freezing cold. She won her class (2’3″).
On the flat, she is forward and elastic, and extremely soft in the contact. As she builds more topline she gains strength and balance. She still comes up often for the canter transition, but starting to relax with really nice and easy transitions. She works well off the seat and wants a rider who won’t try to hold her in a frame with the rein.
“Pumpkin” is a barn favorite. She is calm, patient, and well- behaved while being athletic with plenty of get-up-and-go.
The pictures do not do this mare justice. In person, she is absolutely stunning. She has a striking presence about her, and she’ll definitely get you noticed. She’s a big mare with plenty of substance and flash.
She is athletic and forward with excellent manners in the field and on the trail. No spook. She will happily lead, follow, or go in middle. She’s one of those versatile horses that could go in any direction what you want.
Her age is in the mid-teens. She is Waggoner Ranch branded, but her papers lost have been lost. She was a broodmare with several years off and is now coming back into work. Prior to becoming a broodmare, she was used for roping so she has experience with cattle.
Not mare-ish, even in heat. Easy to catch. Stands on a picket line and quietly for mounting. Stands for everything – grooming, farrier, vet, etc. UTD shots and floating. Sound barefoot.

Spot My Coolness (known around the barn as Little Bit) is a 15.1hh 4 year old Appaloosa gelding. He was started last year by Stacey McCoy with 30 days under saddle then turned out to mature. He has been in training this year for 60 days. Little Bit is an athletic willing learner, but is quiet and patient. He is a horse that has been started right and is more than capable of excelling in whatever discipline that you want to finish him in.
Little Bit goes well in both western and english tack and has been trail ridden extensively. He was started with a strong foundation in natural horsemanship and ground work. He has good feet and has remained healthy and sound throughout his training. Little Bit is happy in a stall or turned out. He stands well for the farrier, loads, and trailers well. No known vices.
He is an eye catcher and will certainly draw the judge’s eye. He would make an amazing hunter prospect, but he is also going to be a great all around horse. Currently asking *****, price may increase with training and showing.
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.
