CLOUD 9 WALKERS
Beautiful Bronze Buckskin 3-yr-old Tennessee Walking Horse Mare
with Cute, Loving, Affectionate Personality
Liz (11 years old) rides Mariska on our camping trip the week of 2/23/11.
THIS is what we do. We recently put together a "reunion/refresher" camp, which several previous customers brought their horses to, rode with us, we offered pointers and helped with any issues they might have questions about, and had a very, very LARGE time! Gourmet meals at camp, fellowship dinners, singing and laughing around the campfire. Click on the above embedded arrow to ride along with us.
Liz showing off on Mariska. Scott is behind her on his beautiful black and white "Mingo" that he bought from us two years ago.
Gail rides "Seger", whom she bought from us almost 18 years ago, while her sister Sue rides Mariska, with Kenya, the Rhodesian Ridgeback following.
Sue rides Mariska while Liz follows on Soldier. In picture at right, Larry is riding "Hobo", a 22-yr-old horse that he bought from us almost 18 years ago.
Not a fly between a her ears, and not a tick. Have you ever seen a horse with a LLAMA between her ears??
Mariska is asking me, "How many scary boogers can you get in one pasture?"

Mariska's first camping trip (week of 11/4/10) at Angelina Forest. She camped for 5 days, was ridden completely solo (no other horses around), with dogs, and then the last day, she led a ride of 19 other riders! A real sweetheart.

This beautiful Tennessee Walking Horse filly has a nice, wide chest.
We just pulled her in from the summer pasture to take these pictures . . . she has been grazing a nice, fertilized pasture for the summer, so you are looking at the 'raw product' here.
Whew! This is hard work!
She's working hard and doing it in style.
In the two pictures above, Bailey (Border Collie/Golden Retriever cross) 'works' Mariska around the round pen and effectively desensitizes her to dogs.

"Mariska" -- Sweetheart, gentle as a lamb 3-yr-old golden bronze buckskin Tennessee Walking Horse mare with thick black mane and tail, black-tipped ears, black muzzle, and long black stockings. She was started under saddle after a solid round pen training program, ridden alone for awhile, then hauled on camping trips and trail rides. She would make a great competitive ride prospect -- already trained to back nicely, forehand turn, pivot, side pass and started on obstacles. Sweet, sweet, gentle disposition, best of care and handled with love and top quality care her entire life. Her sire goes back to old timey breeding (Delight's Jetstar and Montana Traveler) while her dam is Spotted Alen Again, Delight of Pride, Sun's Delight D. Owner has had her in training with us from the beginning, but has been confronted with drastic job changes and must sell. $6500
