A Client's Horse in Training at Rising K Ranch
Not for Sale
Honey is a Two Year Old Roan Filly that Came to us to Learn to be Good around a Ranch and in the Mountains. She had previously been poorly started and had developed a rearing and striking problem. This video shows how she is doing after 90 days at Rising K Ranch. She is still here in training with us and we have plans to put her into local cowhorse and reining shows.
Cousin: 5 Year Old Sorrel Mare
I call this horse "Cousin" because I know she is at least a distant cousin to my Smart Little Lena mare- but she is GRADE (no registration papers with the AQHA).
I have raised this horse since she was a long yearling and she is safe, sound, and soft in the mouth. She has a decent stop and will work off your feet quite well and would make a good working ranch horse or mountain horse. If you are interested in barrels (which I am not) she would do well with that as she is a fast sprinter if you ask her to run (which I rarely do past a fast lope.) I currently use her as a riding lesson horse at Rising K Ranch. She is safe for beginners and has been ridden by plenty of first-time riders and children, but in order to preserve her mouth from dudes, I have mostly kept her with at least intermediate riders who will not pull hard on her.
She does well being ridden all day while rounding up cattle off of Kanarra Mountain as well as in the Virgin River Gorge. She has gone on all day mountain rides hundreds of times and has never shown any sign of unsoundness.
We purchased Banner as a weanling from Shamus Haw's Running U Livestock at their final Running U Livestock Production Sale in 2016. She has since grown up here at Rising K Ranch and has been used for regular ranch work, trail rides and horseback riding lessons.

Sammy came to us from Jim Montgomery at Montgomery Performance Horses in Veyo, Utah. Sammy was sent here for a few months to simply learn to be a good ranch horse that will do well on mountains or with general ranch work and is safe to be around.
