Apache may be the best combination of a kid horse and a working cow and trail horse we have worked with. He does it all, and he looks good doing it. Temperament, Conformation, Color, and Experience/Ability – he excels in every way. We cannot overstate how good this once-in-a-lifetime horse actually is. The video speaks for itself.

TEMPERAMENT – Apache is every rider’s favorite. From kids to guests to cowboys who want to sort and rope, his mind is always “right.” As you can see from the video, he is ready, willing, and more than able for anything we ask him to do.

CONFORMATION – He checks every box. Thick and muscular in perfect proportions with the head of a superstar, he will always be the best-looking horse in the pasture.

COLOR – Apache’s Black/Overo paint pattern makes him a looker and a favorite. He is a picture postcard Overo and as handsome as they come.

EXPERIENCE/ABILITY – First and foremost, Apache is and would make the perfect horse for children or beginner riders. He is absolutely one of the best we have seen. But… he can also step up and work for the rider who demands more.

He came to us as an experienced trail horse with a good mind and many miles under saddle. He has ridden in large and small groups, caring for young inexperienced riders. Having completed our full program, he has the best ground and saddle training you can find – from basic lunging, flexing, picking up his shoulders, moving off his legs, and desensitizing to the obstacle course. All of this has been reinforced by practical experience and many hours doing his job. He is an all-around winner.

He is ready for any shooting event and has the temperament and experience for field trials, hunting, or mounted shooting.

If you like water, mud, and steep trails, just point Apache in the direction you want to go.

Need to move cows? He tracks, cuts, has been roped off of, opens and closes gates, regularly moves cows, and will drag anything you latch to him. There is nothing under saddle this fine horse won’t willingly and capably do.

He is 100% sound with no issues, vices, or barn problems. He stands to be saddled, trimmed, bathed and used as a diving board in ponds and on trampolines. Whatever you want to do, Apache has been there and done that.

He has passed with flying colors our training and certification program and is proficient in all below and more:
