My darling, Joy.
Ben, my first heritage horse.
My love affair with horses began at birth and was fostered by my first pony when I turned 5. My love of horses and the desire to improve everything within my power has become a way of life. We take each and every horse on our farm to the trail at four years of age, whether mare, gelding, or stallion, as proof of the quality we strive for through breeding, feed, forage, hoof care, interaction and training. At Moondance Farm, we have carefully chosen our broodmares from foundation bloodlines whether Tennessee Walking Horse or Paso Fino. Unlike many breeding farms, we do not simply breed any available horse, we breed horses that have proven their worthiness to reproduce, especially through training under saddle.
Pride's Royal Master, who was born in 1976 out of Pride of Midnight HF and Delight's Lindy Lee, both from old foundation lines, has enhanced our breeding program with yet another sensible, gentle, naturally gaited bloodline. Though the Pride bloodlines are excluded from the acceptable bloodlines in the IHWHA, we have loved the effect Royal Master has had on our breeding program through our Tennessee Walking Horse mares and the tried and true foundation characteristics all of our horses possess.
My husband, Scott, and I have been married since 1993 and enjoy trail riding together very much. Of our three children, only our daughter rides with us though both of her older brothers are thankful to have grown up unconventionally on a horse farm.
