I've Always Loved Horses

I grew up in northern Kentucky, home of the Blue Grass and Kentucky Thoroughbreds, and have always loved horses. I've spent my life learning how to ride and train different breeds from Peruvian Pasos to Quarter Horses and of course Andalusian Horses and Arabians.

In the early 1990s I was introduced to Peruvian Pasos and trained these gaited horses for several years. My Peruvian Paso friend directed me to a "help wanted" advertisement for someone to work with Spanish horses. I interviewed (about 100 people responded) and was hired as a part-time training/horse selling assistant with Denham Ranch in Aubrey, Texas in 1996.

Within several months, I had sold my Quarter Horse and purchased a 7-month old Spanish Andalusian filly named Keberes D who I nicknamed "Leia." A few years later my mother and I purchased a half-sister Andalusian mare to Leia named Nobleza D. Both Andalusian mares went on to become Champions via the International Andalusian & Lusitano Association (IALHA).

While at Denham Ranch, I worked with the herd of 50 or so pure Spanish Andalusian horses, handled and clipped mares and foals, bred stallions, gave tours, showed horses, videotaped and photographed sales horses, trained young stock, mare-broke colts, attended "fiestas" and clinics, participated in Cria Caballar inscription/revision, and took dressage riding lessons.

Around 2001 I went my own way and separated from Denham Ranch. My Andalusian mares were then bred and boarded for some time at Herradura Andalusians in Denton, Texas. I have attended IALHA Nationals and local shows for many years. I've trained my Andalusian horses for English pleasure, Western pleasure, reining, doma vaquera, trail riding, dressage, and tricks.

Spain "the mother country" is never far from my mind when it comes to breeding my Spanish horses. I read Spanish and have gained valuable knowledge from Spanish horse literature and websites. I've also studied hours upon hours of videotape of Pure Spanish horses (Pura Raza Espanola) brought back from Spain.

I am active in maintaining several websites devoted to the Spanish horse and am making educational videos so that people can appreciate the beauty and heritage of this special breed from Spain.

We hope you enjoy our website!
