Past Horses

Here are just a few of the horses that have been a part of Sierra Nevada Sporthorses through the years. Click on each image for a description.

Take the Field

"Hustler" is a 2017 gelding with a puppy dog personality and a heart of gold. Fancy and smooth movement combined with an amateur/junior rider-friendly brain. Hustler has found his very own loving family and will soon be making his debut in the hunter/jumper world!

Favorite Trip

"Fiji" is a 2015 mare who boasts an amazing pedigree including Storm Cat, Secretariat, Mr. Prospector, Deputy Minister, and more. She won her maiden race in 2017, and raced three more times but was unable to repeat that success. She retired off the track in 2019, and has had significant down time before making her way to my program. She stands 16.2 and is of medium build. Fiji is incredibly sweet, and gets very bonded to "her person." She is fancy on the flat, and has smooth, rhythmic gaits. Has been introduced to jumping and really enjoys it! Fiji is bold and curious, and absolutely loves hacking out on the property.  

Fiji moved to Oregon to be with her new mom, and they are looking to make their three day eventing debut in 2021!

Strait Up Indian

"Indie" is a 2016 mare with an impressive pedigree including Mr. Prospector, Unbridled, Siberian Express, and Indian Charlie (Grade I Santa Anita Derby stakes record time holder and third place finisher in the Kentucky Derby). Her one race in August 2020 proved she was far too slow to cut it as a racehorse. Indie stands 16.1 hands and is cute as a button. Incredibly polite and sweet, you couldn't ask for a better horse to handle on the ground, and she loves to cuddle. Currently learning dressage basics, gets both leads, and is forward without being hot. Indie has hacked out on the conditioning track in a group, and was happy to take the lead or follow. She is bold and curious, and enjoys both her work in the area and adventures outside of the arena. I could see her excelling in three day, the hunter/jumper world, the dressage ring, or being a great trail partner. Indie would also make a fabulous addition to a breeding program. She's a versatile mare that seems content to do whatever her person is into! Indie could be suitable for a junior in a program, or an adult amateur. 

Indie will be learning the ropes of eventing with her new mom; we can't wait to see what they accomplish!

Cordial Charlie

"Swanky" is a 2017 gelding with an amazing pedigree, including Northern Dancer, Unusual Heat, Deputy Minister, Storm Cat, and Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner Real Quiet. Swanky was trained at the track, but never raced as he was too slow and did not love track life. He enjoyed a month of down time after leaving the track before being brought into a training program. He stands 16.2 and takes up your leg nicely without feeling too big.

Swanky found his match in a great young rider, and they will be learning the ropes of eventing together!

Alystar

"Bizzy" is a 2016 mare with an all-star studded pedigree, including Storm Cat, Seattle Slew, Secretariat, Northern Dancer, and Mr. Prospector. Bizzy raced a total of four times (three in 2018, and her last race was February 2019). She placed well out of the money each time, and was retired for being too slow. She stands 16.1, with good substance and body. Bizzy carries herself incredibly well, and just screams presence. 

She showed dressage up to Training Level tests 1 and 2, competed in the jumper classes up to 2'6", and enjoyed many trail rides.

Bizzy is living the life being spoiled by her new mom and hitting the trails together!

Hearts Candy

"Josie" is a 2017 mare with a notable pedigree, including Bertrando (California Horse of the Year 1993 and U.S. Champion Older Male Horse 1993), Mr. Prospector, Danzig, and Fappiano (sire of Real Quiet, Victory Gallop, and grand-sire to American Pharaoh). She stands 15.3 and isn't done growing quite yet! She has great substance to her, and takes up the leg nicely. 

Josie is headed to Nevada to begin her eventing career!

C'mon Jenna

"Fargo" is a 2018 gelding with some pretty impressive names in his pedigree; Storm Cat, Northern Dancer, A.P. Indy, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Mr. Prospector, and Dynaformer. He stands 16.3 and will easily finish at 17 or above. 

Fargo is staying close in Northern CA and will be getting ample time to grow up slowly and correctly, then will hit the trails and learn some dressage with his new mom!

Wholetthecatout

"Baja" is a 2019 gelding with an incredible pedigree including Storm Cat, A.P. Indy, Seattle Slew, Mr. Prospector, Secretariat, Northern Dancer, and Summer Squall. He raced four times (all at Golden Gate Fields in Northern CA), never placing better than 5th and retiring sound. His last race was 3/12/22. Baja currently stands at 16.3 and a half hands, and will easily finish at 17 hands or above. 

Baja moved right down the street and will be getting lots of time to grow up into his big body, then will be making quite a splash in the jumper ring!

Sound Judgment

"Judge" is a 2016 gelding sired by The Pamplemousse, a stallion known for his speed and raw ability. The Pamplemousse has sired many successful upper level sport horses, and is being geared towards a second career as an event horse himself. Judge's pedigree also includes Street Sense (2007 Kentucky Derby winner), Dynaformer, Northern Dancer, and Mr. Prospector. Judge raced 20 times and was a winner, with his last race occurring on 9/3/22. He ran on CA tracks (Golden Gate, Sacramento, Fresno, Los Alamitos, and Pleasanton). Judge has been sticked at 16.1 hands, and is of medium build.

Judge is staying on the farm for a bit to continue his training, and then will be moving to his new mom's property! They are going to take on the dressage and jumping world together. He will still be close by, and I can't wait to watch their new partnership flourish!
