is a gorgeous, golden AQHA 9-year Buckskin gelding. He is the last foal
out of our Beloved and World Champion producer Ladz Yellow Rose. He
is a BIG, 16.1 1200+ lb. boy! We have spent the years on Ti mostly trail
riding, doing parades, hauling to arenas for fun events and just enjoying
him. He has so much potential in the horse show world, we just ran out
of steam in the all-around show ring and focused the last several years
in the reining world. Ti is not being used to his potential here and
he’s too nice of a horse, I feel bad keeping him around as a pasture
pony riding him here and there, as much as we like him! The years here
on our ranch have been perfect for him to grow up. He is a professionally
trained, confident, well mannered, solid, sound (both mentally and physically)
horse, now ready to find his calling in life. He could go most any direction
but we see him excelling in Western Dressage, AQHA all-around events,
or most certainly a fantastic pleasure/trail riding horse. He doesn’t
spook, we’ve ridden him in multiple parades, taken him swimming,
led him out to pasture with the ATV’s, gone through hay fields
while being harvested by the tractors, taken him down the road with
cars, dogs, bikes etc. He knows how to both live in the pasture and
drink from the ditch as well as be polite in the barn, blanketed and
pampered like a show horse. He stands tied, loads, clips, hauls easily
and is good for the farrier. He is playful and huge and for that reason
I would not recommend him for a beginner or a child. We had recently
sold Ti, but unfortunately the woman had to back out of the sale because
of family misfortune due to the hurricane. We have a recent pre-purchase
exam, coggins and health certificate. He is 100% sound and we are happy
to release the vet check records and you are welcome to visit with the
vet that did the exam.
is a gorgeous 2006 AQHA/PHBA 16.2 H mare. She has ‘been there,
done that!’ She was born, raised and trained by Lynn Hindman here
at Haystack Acres. Grace is excellent on the trail, including the mountains.
Bikes, cars, trucks, dogs and even mountain animals don’t bother
her. She crosses water and even enjoys a swim! Grace was a lesson horse
for the CU equestrian team for several years and then went on as a youth
show mare consistently winning in 4H. Grace was reserve year-end winner
in the Youth RMQHA outreach in Showmanship, English Eq, HUS and Horsemanship.
She even competed in a Halloween costume class at a RMQHA show! Grace
goes nicely English or Western and has many arena and trail miles. She
will be shown in Western Dressage this fall. She is polite and quiet
on the ground, hauls easily, stands for the farrier and is safe and
trustworthy to be around.
Best Chance, aka "Fabio" as well call him is a stunning 2005
AQHA/NRHA golden palomino gelding. He has been professionally trained
and shown (open, youth and amateur) in reining (money earner) and Western
Dressage. We have ridden him extensively on trails and he loves every
minute of it! He is very light in the bridle and responds to a soft
leg, hand and seat. Chance is a gorgeous horse with a big heart and
strong desire to please. He hauls easily, travels well, and easy to
maintain. He is 100% sound with no injections or past injuries. We think
he needs a job in the movie industry!
Skip is a big, beautiful 16.1 H buttermilk buckskin that lives up to his name in his movement! He "skips" along so fluidly in his gaits that we think he would be gorgeous in Western dressage. He has been professionally trained here at Haystack Acres and is ready for a career. He has a kind and willing disposition and is a pleasure to be around. He lives in the pasture, drinks out of the ditch and knows how to be a horse, though he likes to be spoiled in the barn as well! Most of his training has been in the arena. He will carry a nice, collected frame and moves easily off the leg with a soft hand and seat in all directions, forward, lateral and reverse. He moves freely through the hip and shoulder and is ready for an experienced rider to go on with him. He stands tied quietly and hauls easily. He is sound and has no maintenance issues.
"Big Grey" as we call him is a 2007 double registered APHA/ABRA Grullo Gelding. He is loaded with dun factor and a gorgeous big boy standing 16.1 H. He is sired by the well known multiple time World Champion Indian Artifacts by Artful Move. He is a talented beautiful mover, and ready to go on in a variety of disciplines. We purchased him 2 years ago for my daughter to "play with" and continue his training. He had been started over fences from the folks in Kentucky, whom we purchased him from. We put him to work, polishing his foundation training, hitting the trails and a few schooling shows with him. He is soft, supple and moving nicely off leg and seat. He is a bit busy minded and not appropriate for beginner riders just yet, but kind, willing and eager to learn. He is well mannered on the ground, loads and clips good with the farrier, and stands tied quietly. He enjoys getting out on the trail and has a wonderful ground covering walk. He loves to swim as well and will cross water willingly, dogs, bikes and cars don't bother him. We even put jingle bells and ribbons on him and went on a Christmas caroling hay wagon ride around the neighborhood! Kinsey is busy with college demands now, so mom is doing the training! I have enough jobs so Big Grey needs a new rider! He is friendly, loves attention and has no vices. He needs an experienced rider who can go on with his training; this horse will be fantastic when he is finished!

She is professionally trained and well polished on many maneuvers including canter departure from the stand still, side pass, two track, turn on haunches and forehand and backs with ease. She is very soft and supple and carries collection through all her gaits. She is truly an all around mare in the show pen, but loves to trail ride as well. Show horse or family friend, she loves people and aims to please whatever her job, whatever the discipline, she is a charm.
Toby is a gentle, kind Percheron/TB cross gelding. He is 15 yrs and 15.3 H. He is well mannered and very willing to please. He has been used as a lesson horse for the University of Colorado equestrian team and is well trained in the arena. He loves the trail and is excellent about crossing water, doesn't spook, listens to his rider and isn't bothered by dogs, bikes or cars. He loads in a trailer and hauls easily.

Isabeau, "Izzy" is a beautiful 1993 Friesian/TB mare registered in the Performance Horse Registry and International Sporthorse Registry (main mare book Oldenburg registry). She is 100% sound and a pleasure to ride. She is a beautiful mover in classic dressage and recently has been playing around in Western Dressage. She has wonderful ground manners and is trustworthy and safe to be around. She has had 2 foals without any complications through live cover on first try. Izzy is an easy keeper and is not on any special maintenance program. She lives in the pasture, is kind around other horses and truly a sweet, gentle mare. Click here to see a video of Izzy!
"Lizzie" is a beautiful golden Palomino Quarter horse that I trained as a 2 year old. She has been with me and friends of mine throughout her life. She has truly "been there, done that". She started her career as a show horse earning numerous points in the PHBA association in multiple disciplines in both English and Western, ridden professionally in the open events, and shown in both youth and amateur as well. She retired from the show ring and spent many years as a trail horse. She crosses water, rides anywhere with confidence, is easy to load and haul, stands tied, is easy to clip and bathe and is excellent with her feet. She is absolutely gentle and trustworthy. Lizzie has spent the last 5 years as a lesson horse for the CU equestrian team. She is the horse anyone can ride and is perfect for beginners but trained well enough that an advanced rider can enjoy her with ease. She just turned 18 years young and is 100% sound with no vices. She sells only because we have more horses than we need.
Killean is a 2008 APHA breeding stock gelding raised and trained here at Haystack Acres. He has been handled professionally since a foal and is very well mannered and quiet. He had 60 days of professional training at age 2 in Natural Horsemanship and the video demonstrates his willing attitude. He has been hauled and ridden extensively on trails, but his arena skills are tuned and polished. He is soft and very responsive; his gaits are comfortable and easy to sit. He is currently being used as a lesson horse for the University of Colorado Equestrian team. He has been shown by the CU team in Western Dressage, and indoor arenas and new environments do not bother him a bit. He is even quiet around cattle and has an excellent stop, using his hind end really well. He is athletic and quiet enough to be a fancy working cow/ranch horse with the foundation he has had, he just needs someone to go on with him. Killean gets along well in the herd and is an easy keeper, truly an all-around nice gelding.
Here is a video of Killean on YouTube.
"Dice" is a flashy 14 year old APHA gelding who is a wonderful all-around horse. He is 14.3 H, a nice size for someone who prefers a smaller horse, and very gentle. He is well trained in the arena as well as a solid trail horse. He has lots of mountain miles in and out of trees and up and down trails. He is very well mannered, kind, and easy to clip, bath, shoe and haul. He has no vices and is not spooky. He will be shown in Western Dressage and professionally ridden until sold.
