Shaker's Jamaican Pride (Leo) - & Shaker's Spotted Pride (Pride)
Shaker's Jamaican Pride (who we affectionately call "Leo") is just starting his jumping career and has already broken records. He is the 2009 World Jumping Champion. He has won more USEF and Open Jumping Shows than any MFTHBA (Missouri Foxtrotter) or SSHBEA (Spotted Saddle Horse) in history. In just the last 5 open jumping shows he won 19 first places, 10 division championships, 8 -2nd places, 22-top 5's and 5 top 10's (USEF "B" "AA" and open shows). He is also Top 10 in the World Overall Open Versatility Champion (MFTHBA) and 6th in the PtHA (Pinto) Overall High Point Versatility in his division. He is triple registered MFTHBA, Pinto (PtHA)and Spotted Saddle Horse (SSHBEA). He jumps 4 feet high and 6 feet wide. He is an amazingly calm, sweet, naturally gaited, smooth , athletic and colorful. His foals have all had perfectly straight legs and amazing conformation as well as being stunningly beautiful. His feet are so perfect that he only needs to be trimmed once a year and he passes this on to his offspring. He competes barefoot. The shipper that brought Leo here from MO, said that he is the best stallion he has ever hauled - he stood quietly next to another stallion the whole ride... never making a peep. Since we are trail riders -we care first about a horse's great mind and quietness (necessary for safety on the trails), second conformation, and lastly color - but with Leo you can have it all! He is a non-fading black and white. He is kept in a pasture with a mare or gelding all the time so is well socialized and kind to all other horses and is a pleasure to handle. He is smooth and effortless to keep in his gaits. If you are interested in breeding to him please email me. His fee is $950 and I provide a live foal guarantee. We are in love with Leo. I hope you will be too. Even if you don't jump, you still get a baby with the best breeding, feet, legs, conformation, beauty, versatility and kind temperament that you could possibly imagine with the strong possibility of color. Discount for multiple mares. $950 breeding fee until 2011 when his breeding fee will most likely increase - so book now. Fee includes 2 weeks of board and a live foal guarantee.
His breeding fee is $950. Multiple mare discount. Kirsty@greattrailhorse.com
Shaker's Spotted Pride ~Pride~
Shaker's Spotted Pride is truly an amazing stallion. After only 3 months under saddle, being started at 11 years old - he won 3rd out of 12 horses at the 1st show he went to (USEF Class A). He then went on to win his first World Championship at the SSHBEA Sport Horse World Championship in barrels, and ended up taking home the SSHBEA Reserve World Champion High Point Overall stallion (coming in 2nd to Leo). He also won his first Open Jumping Division Championship in November. He is registered TWHBEA, MFTHBA, SSHBEA and Pinto. They do not allow Tennessee Walkers and Missouri Foxtrotters to be double registered anymore. He has the thickest, best bone I has ever seen. I do not shoe my horses and Pride's feet and legs are absolutely perfect and he passes this trait on to his offspring as Leo's are exactly the same. You never have to trim their feet. They grow so perfectly that they self-trim. I only have the farrier shape their feet before we go to a show - there is never anything to take off. Pride is completely sound in every way. He is thick, stocky and impressive. We are currently training him to jump and he is excelling at it. After only 2 weeks of training with Alexandra Cooper, he is jumping 3 feet. Pride won 3rd out of 13 horses in his first class at his first show (USEF class A) as well as 5th and 7th. We will be taking him the the SSHBEA World Show in November along with his son Leo (Shaker's Jamaican Pride). Leo (his 5 year old son) has won more USEF competitions than any other MFTHBA or SSHBEA horse in history - and he's just getting started. They are extreme athletes, strong, proud and handsome in every way. $950 breeding fee which includes 2 weeks of mare care. Pride is currently near Cleveland OH. He jumps 3'9".

Shaker's Jamaican Pride and Dolly's 1st baby is below. How amazing is he? Shaker's Gold Baron is a buckskin tobiano with perfectly straight legs and both of his parent's calm, kind eyes and personality. He has perfect conformation and is huge. These pictures were taken at 1 week old. He has more than doubled in size 1 month later. Baron is not currently for sale.
Kirsten Klindworth - I have been riding, breeding, training, handling, marketing, appraising, showing, loving and (more recently) driving horses for 35+ years. I now own, helped train and am fortunate enough to breed the horse who has won more USEF Championships than any other MFTHBA (Missouri Foxtrotter) or (SSHBEA)Spotted Saddle Horse in history. He is also the 2009 MFTHBA World Jumping Champion, the 2010 SSHBEA World Grand Champion Stallion, 2010 SSHBEA Youth World Jumping Champion, Open High Jumping Champion and 2011 Pinto PtHA, Amateur World Jumping Champion - Shaker's Jamaican Pride - and many Reserve Champion Mares as well as Top 5 and Top 10 winners. Horses have filled my life with joy, humor, love and compassion and I believe that they deserve the same in return. "Horses will give you so much more with their heart than you can ever win with fear" is my motto. I created www.Greattrailhorse.com 10 years ago and now hope to share any extra horse-knowledge I have (mostly accidentally) acquired throughout the years with you on www.EHorseVideos.com . Many happy trails to you!
