About Us - We are located in the South East corner of Idaho in beautiful Lava Hot Springs. We have been in the business of breeding and showing Paint and Quarter Horses since the mid 80's.
We have had many stallions of our own over the years and have bred to many world champions. We have based our breeding on our most favorite stallion Showdown At Six, 1985 - 2008, (an own n/n son of Impressive). Keeping some of his sons along with daughters and granddaughters for breeding. We have crossed some of them on world champions and kept some of them. Our mares bloodlines include:
Mr. Be Downtown
RH Stars & Stripes, etc.
"Photos are dedicated to those we know, love, and have lost."
We have raised and shown many exceptional horses. When we were showing alot we took five different horses that we had raised to the world shows and placed in the top five with every one! The five horses included:
Jazzed To Impress - 1993 APHA Amateur World ChampionTwo Year Old Stallion.
Highly Prized Two - Three

Styled Two Impress - 1995 APHA World Show, top 5, Open & Amateur Weanling Stallion.

Showdown's Classic(our favorite) - 1991 Palomino Overo mare, - APHA World Show, fourth overall in Open and Amateur Halter Mares and APHA Congress Reserve Grand Champion Mare.(We showed at the congress and the world). She was unfortunately injured on her way home. (See her story) She was on the APHA Leading Dams list for years and she put us on the Leading Breeders List. We have kept some of her daughters by World Champion Stallions, that are producing some of our best foals.
" Bred with a Past to Impressively Paint Your Future". Our Stallions and Mares have produced Top Ten World Champion's, Superior Halter and Superior Western Pleasure Horses. We hope you enjoy as we do, the quality of Horse, "majestic beauty, strength and agility" that we have been breeding for. No words can be expressed, the joys and sorrows, from the fruits of our labor, that our horses have shared with us. The "Horse" from the past to the future, is a living symbol of the historic and pioneer spirit of the west.
To our family, friends, employees, vets, farriers, clients, trainers, suppliers, co-workers and horse enthusiasts,
