I’d like to share a great achievement by my 14 year old gelding First Dream Catcher, aka Teddy.
After having a four year break from riding and showing with my husband, I had him brought back into work last Spring, and started riding him myself.
At only our third ridden show together we won a beautiful High Point trophy by acclaimed sculptress, Gill Parker.
Teddy is a very special boy, being directly related to some all time greats of the Appaloosa and horse world, Dream Finder, First Draft, Zippo Pine Bar, and the awesome Secretariat!
I’m so proud of him!
"Silver" was a beautiful cutting horse who passed on intelligence and athletic ability to his foals. He was not only a 4 X World champion in cutting, but a kind and gentle soul, who could be handled and ridden by anyone. His flowing mane and tail were enough to make a Friesian jealous. He not only commanded the cutting pen, but sired babies that have held their own against other breeds at open events. His foals are winning in halter, cutting, reining, ranch, roping and many other genres. His babies are colorful and easy to train. I am so proud to have owned such a wonderful Appaloosa. Silver is the reason I will stay with the Appaloosa breed forever!!!
