Chase

H’N’P Dream Seeker

Chase is a 2009 Mountain Horse gelding that has become one of our main trail horses here.

Chase is what a Rocky Mountain horse show be.  He is built like a tank - with a powerful body, 15.2 hands tall on 4 large hard feet.  The Amish, who trim his feet, always comment on how perfect his hooves are.  He is the great chocolate color with a very thick flaxen mane and tail that is beautiful.  

Chase is is a trail pro, through water, up and down hills, through the thickest brush, over huge logs and any obstacle you can come up with. You point and he will take you there. He pickets on a line or will stand tied where ever you put him.

Chase is out of LA Bud, and was born and started by Vernon Stamper of Overlook Stables in Sharpsburg, Kentucky.  Vernon Stamper, Overlook's owner, is a third generation Mountain Horse breeder and trainer.  Dreamer was purchased in 2012 by Debbie Kimberley of Sunderland, Ontario, who further trained and extensively used dreamer in a variety of performance horse activities and as an accomplished trail mount. Chase is a very smart horse, that will lay down on cue.

Chase will come up to the fence if he hears the truck start and trailer door open.  He loves to go along.   He listens to leg cues, has a good stop, gaits and will canter when asked. You can mount him from the ground, get on with a mounting block, use a picnic table or what ever, he will stand there quietly for you and not take off.

You can see by the pictures that Chase gets a lot of use - and is an intregal part of farm.

Legend

VBF Very Superstitious, or Legend as we call him around here, is a gelding out of Van Bert Farms in Kentucky.  His sire is Triple S Big Slick, a 2010 Breeders Cup Stallion with lots of ribbons to his name.  On his dam's side Legend is just 3 generations removed from Tobe, the foundation sire for the whole Mountain Horse breed.

Legend has been an incredibly quick learner.  He was trained as a yearling by Shaun Beardsley at Liberty Pines in Rose City, Michigan using the Pat Perrelli method.  Legend now spend all of his time trail riding here in Michigan, and has become a dependable horse and an excellent example of the Mountain Horse breed.

Max is usually ridden by our daughter, Teagan O'Bryan, who is in her first year showing Mountain Horses.
