Congratulations to Hollie Benefield on her new horse,
2yr old Arabian/Paint filly
Hollie has been taking lessons here for about a year and a half and is a "Horse Crazy" girl!! She loves to ride and has been dreaming of owning her own horse. When this beautiful filly arrived, which Hollie has renamed Heaven Sent, all of the students fell in love with her. She has a wonderful personality and is very layed back and willing to learn.
Heaven waiting for her new owner to arrive!
Hollie started helping me start Heaven under saddle and saw what a wonderful horse she was becoming. On Oct 11, 2008, Hollie's mother and grandparents surprised her by giving her Heaven.

Heaven will be staying at Whispering Rain Farms to continue her training until the end of Nov 08, when she will go to her new home at Hollie's house!!

Congratulations to Danielle Brewer of Ider, AL on her purchase of
8yr old Arabian Gelding
Midnight is a beautiful, purebred Arabian gelding. He is great on the trails wagon trains. He has all of the spirit, beauty and endurance that people love in Arabians. He has strong feet and only need shoes when riding miles and miles on rocks. He rides well in a plain snaffle bit or just a halter. He neck reins and listens to leg pressure.
Midnight with his new owner, "Dani," riding home after our local Smith Wagon Train.
Update: in October 08, Dani signed her and Midnight up for a 2 Day Sensory Training Clinic. ("Mounted Police Training for the Civilian Rider") They had to ride through ponds, over bridges (with smoke coming from under it at times), through gates, over logs, poles and tires, under tarps, etc!! Danie even shot a gun off of Midnight!! We are so proud of you both!!!

Watch Katima Twostep
2006 AQHA Appendix Filly

Katima as a yearling
Our family raised Katima and still owns her dam and sire. We had done all of the basic ground work with her and she was easy to catch, lead and load into the trailer. She would stand for the farrier, take a saddle and bridle and was started on ground driving.
Katima was purchased to be trained for barrels and poles. We look forward to hearing updates on how she is doing!! We'll update this page with her progress.
The day after Katima arrived in her new home, we received an update saying that they had began working with her. She is enjoying her new stall. They have continued working on her ground work and the new owner has been laying across her back and she did great. I bet they'll be riding her by the time she turns 2yrs old!!
More updates to come...
