We have been breeding, raising and showing Appaloosas since 1976. In that time we have produced numerous Youth, Open, Non-Pro and Futurity Champions of our own as well as having had National and World Champions sired by our stallions, Rocky Topp and Heads Up Reward. Although we currently do not stand any stallions, we continue to strive to improve our program by adding new bloodlines such as It's A Southern Thing (AQHA), Choc Full of Chips, I Bee Talkin (AQHA), Star J, Zip To Sunny, Impulsive Zipper, Zips EZ Question and RK Lads Dream to produce champions. Winners, such as the 1997 ApHC Breeders Trust High Money Horse, Gold Ore Else, his full sister, We Be Stylin, 2002 MI Breeders Futurity Champion Jr. Filly and Reserve Champion Weanling Filly, This Zip’s No Fool, Multiple Futurity Winner and both the Open and Non-Pro World Yearling Longe Line Champion in 2002 and Zips The Limit, multiple regional champion, Dreamin of Romance, 2009 MAPHA Breeders Futurity High Point Horse and multiple regional champion & Zips EZ Sonny, multiple regional champion, are a testament to the continuous improvement of our breeding program .
Quality - Conformation - Disposition - Performance
Our goal is to produce a quality performance horse that is good looking enough to hold their own in halter and good-minded enough for anyone in the family to handle. Most of our horses have ended up in the hands of youth and non-pros who have gone on to enjoy them in whatever endeavor they may choose. Many are in the show ring, internationally, nationally, regionally and locally, while others have been on the trail, including packing into the mountains out west, and in handicapped riding programs.
