Tracy Porter

This is my friend, Tracy Porter, and her horse Caz. Tracy is a trainer/clinician from Wisconsin and is spending some time with us developing a new specialty act. Check out Tracy's website:

She has a beautiful training facility in Wisconsin - I bet she doesn't miss the weather right now...

Happy Trails,

Media Coverage - Symphony of Horses

Here's a newspaper clipping from our performance at Symphony of Horses Sunday night. That's us in the bottom picture playing "Indiana Jones" in our new movie-themed act. Our horses were great, as usual, and the audience really got into the act with us. We'll have more pics up soon -

Happy Trails

Symphony of Horses

We had a great time at the Symphony of Horses performance Sunday evening. It was held at the University of Florida's O'Connell Center and there were thousands in attendance. Here's a pic of Carson Kressley holding my promo "bottle" of Mane N Tail Detangler at a pre-performance party. I'll have more pics up soon!

Roman Riding

I found this picture taken during a photo shoot a couple of years ago at the Kentucky Horse Park. I'm thinking about putting it on the back of my trailer with a "Happy Trials" byline...Roy Rogers was always one of my heroes...


A fan recently requested a picture of my dog, CiCi (Sierra). She's posing on the haystack, where she likes to hang out while I'm training.

Symphony of Horses

This is a picture of us performing at a professional indoor football game. Spanky is executing a courbette - a high-schooled movement, consisiting of a rear and leap, performed by the Lippizan Stallions. As you can see, he can get some pretty big air...

We're really looking forward to our December 10th performance at Symphony of Horses. We've choreographed a great movie theme - Indiana Jones - in which we'll roman ride with fire stunts, perform some intricate whip cracking in a great fight sequence, cavalry-style trick shooting, trick horses and fire jumping! This event benefits therapeutic riding and features other equine performers and celebrities such as Pat Parelli, Karson Cressley, the Arabian Nights Black Stallion and more, performing at the University of Florida's O'Connell Center in Gainesville FL! We'll post pics from the event as soon as possible.
