Smugs Black Badger
It's been a little over a year since you convinced me to give "Newman" a chance and I could not be happier! I checked in a few months after I got him but he has really blossomed this past year into something special. He's like a big dog and full of so much personality and is truly a barn favorite. Everyone that meets him falls instantly in love with him.
I initially got him as a trail horse but he's such a beautiful mover that I transitioned him over to English and am looking forward to showing him in the Spring (still brushing up on MY skills! Lol). I've also transitioned him to a bitless bridle which he absolutely loves and is flourishing with.
He truly is a once in a lifetime horse and I couldn't be happier with him. Thank you so much for urging me to give the gray horse a chance! Lol He's been everything I could have ever asked for and more.
Happy Holidays and keep doing what you do! So nice to have a place locally to buy a quality safe horse."

"Oh my gosh, I can't thank you enough for sending "Newman" (Bluval Poco Stormdeck) home with us, he is an absolute DREAM! He is exactly what we were looking for and he's really filled out nicely this past month. He's put on some weight (quickly I might add!) and is a BIG solid boy. Despite his size he has such a gentle disposition and the stable owners are very happy with how easy he is to handle and his impeccable ground manners. He's proving to be fantastic under saddle and has the get-up-and-go when you ask for it, yet he's a total 'baby-sitter' when mounting/dismounting and won't move until asked to. My 71yo Mom (the one who was with me both times I was down) is totally smitten with him and is even ready to ride him one of these weekends! lol
He is absolutely perfect and he's definitely found himself a permanent home with us. I am beyond happy with him and can't thank you enough!
Thanks for everything Alice, I really appreciate you working with me to find the perfect horse."

CONGRATULATIONS to Jen on the AMAZING ribbons won by her horse Smugs Black Badger and trainer Ceira! We are so happy to see that he is doing so well! Smugs has been in training for only a week as a hunter and already won Overall Hunter Champion at his first show! Can't wait to see what other amazing things this great horse will do!
"In 2011 Alice Crowley purchased a 4 year old Dual Pep gelding at the Super Stakes sale in Fort Worth TX. Alice's keen eye for a great horse was my good fortune. My husband Ray Maheu purchased the horse from Alice, and into my life came Mr. Pib. I started showing Mr. Pib in 2012, and since that time he has won every championship in Area 19.
2012 Champion $3,000 Novice Horse

2014 Champion $15,000 Novice Horses
2014 Reserve Champion Open Horses

I have Alice to thank for Mr. Pib. It has been a great ride!"

"Thought I would send a update on Shiloh... He was a 3yr old QH pony we bought from you 3 yrs ago this past Feb.. I still cannot thank you enough for introducing us to this wonderful boy.. He has been an amazing mount for my daughter, they have mastered a lot together. Now this beauty is in the hunter ring, and doing quite well.. First time out in 2'3" took first place.. He takes everything with ease and does it well. Amazing how a little ranch pony turns into such a beautiful hunter pony... Again Thank you..."

Kid & I have been together just over a year now and have been working hard together. Over the last 2 months we have participated in judged Pleasure Rides, a JumpJumpJump, Hunter Paces and fun ride events and he has done super at each one. We both have learned so much together. We won our first Blue ribbon yesterday at a Hunter Pace ! Kid is the best friend I was looking for - thank you for finding him and matching us together."
