NAARNIA: 6 yr old Straight Russian mare. 14.3. This mare is awesome! She is incredibly smooth! Naarnia has had a month of beginning cow work and she just did a 25 mile night ride last weekend.

This horse has incredible potential. She has lived all her life out on 100 acres with the herd. Her sire, Paradoxx, is a endurance race winner in Jordan. This is the only filly of The One Iment.

LJR Propetual Motion: 9 yr old bay 15.2h bay gelding. The colt is a Strike and Pro-fire grandson! He's a really sweet horse and very well broke. He was regional champion in english pleasure several years ago, but much prefers trail riding! He is not a spooky horse but can be antsy when tied in the barn. He needs to have a pasture home. Promo's match is for a calm experienced rider who loves to just go! He reminds me a lot of Kecia Smette's horse, Sqkr (SW region). I absolutely love riding this horse because he loves to go, has a great walk, and doesn't spook at anything! Plus he has been trained never to break gait, so when other horses take off he will wait until you give him the go ahead! He has that wonderful "lope" not many purebreds have. He tries really hard and loves attention. Promo has a very kind eye. He is a lighter built horse, and will do well in the the hot humid regions. His did first 25 last Sept with a 44 pulse on a crazy hot ride where over half the horses pulled for metabolics! He did his first 50 Thanksgiving and was outstanding. He wanted to canter on in on the last loop. He finished Racing Stripes in a breeze babysitting Naalo, our stallion, on his first 50 in April (photos). He has done 2 more 50s one super rocky and one super muddy with heavyweight riders and he did outstanding! This horse is perfect for someone who rides alone. He really wants to be your 'one and only'. Did I say how much I love this horse?? Breeders Sweepstakes. $5000. Update! Promo just won high vet score carrying 220 lbs on the ride last weekend!

JSN Kaluah and Cream: 7 yr old 15.2h half Saddlebred half Arabian Baske Afire daughter! "Lucy" is a very sweet, in your pocket mare. She is very well broke and loves trail. She is not spooky on trail and very smooth. Many riders have discovered what wonderful horses the saddlebred/arab cross is. If you want a reliable horse on trail or in the arena, she is a good one! She did her first 50 Thanksgiving and was awesome! She also has great dressage potential and would do well in a boarding situation. Lucy is a big bold horse. She is super smooth and has a wonderful canter. Lucy has the personality and confirmation to be a top endurance horse but like many horses that are GREAT endurance horses, she is a dominant mare and you must establish who's in charge! Lucy loves men and needs to be someone's only horse, or kept in a stall/individual paddock situation. Bruce is dying to ride her on the Big Horn this year, but alas, that is for her new owner to do! $6000
Watch out West Region! Lucy is now owned by Greg Mayer! email@example.com

MUSCATALOTTI: We brought this mare into our program because of her tail female line. Her sire is Mussiah (straight Russian) and she is off the Taylor Ranch in Utah. Her tail female line is old desertbred...Rim, Astraled.. so we knew she would be tough and sensible. And she is amazing! She has been running on the ranch all her life and now she is doing fabulously on trail. This horse is very sensible and she is not a spook! She has feet of iron. She is six and between 14.3 and 15h.

MERLIN CF: 4 yr old 15.2h chestnut gelding. This colt is wonderful! He is sweet, loves attention, calm, and very well broke. We have not done a lot of conditioning on him because he was so tall and young, so we have given him a chance just to grow up in the pasture. He runs to you when you call him and is quiet on a tie. Merlin loves to please and is a quiet horse. He's a stout 15.2 with great bone. Merlin just did his first 25 mile ride in Sept and did very well.$5000 VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5trUZ9e-ccA
Merlin has found his perfect match with Pamela Miller of Cerrillos NM! Feel free to email Pamela about firedance farms horses! firstname.lastname@example.org
MAGIC MAN EA: Coming 5 year old 16.2 half Arabian half saddlebred Mamage son. All I can say about this horse is WOW!!! He is very well broke and is very well trained hunt seat. Magic Man is very calm and loves attention! Nothing bothers this horse and he loves everyone. He did two limited distance rides last fall and was perfect! But be prepared, he's not even 5 and he is TRULY 16.2!! $6500 Breeders Sweepstakes. I'm very happy to say that Magic Man is going to Bob Marshall, DVM in WV. Bob fell in love with his wife's horse, Worthy Enough, so now they have a matched pair! You are welcome to email Beth and Bob about Firedance Farms Horses! Look for them on rides in the NE, when Bob isn't vetting the ride! email@example.com
WORTHY ENOUGH: Wow, it's really hard to put Worthy Enough (Copper) on the webpage. We all just love this horse, but...if we love him this much we know that his match will love him even more! Copper is 1/2 Saddlebred and 1/2 Arab. Like Dre, he is TRULY 16h (well 16 and one quarter actually) but he is more slender Copper is absolutely the smoothest horse you will ever ride. He is 'broke to death' and not a spook at all. He has a wonderful personality and loves nothing more than to go down the trail. I hate to sell this horse because he is so incredibly relaxing to ride. Copper's match is someone who wants a horse that is extremely smooth and not a spook and will go anywhere willingly. Perhaps a rider who now has physical issues or just doesn't want to mess with an undependable horse anymore, but is a good rider. He was also my lesson horse for a 12 year old beginner last summer, so he would love to go somewhere with kids! He has not done many AERC rides because we always took a less experienced horse. Copper finally got his turn to do a 50 Sat and he did amazing! He finished 4th out of 20 on a very muddy twisty turny ride! This is REALLY a nice horse!!! Our ride photographer said he was the prettiest horse he's ever seen! His photos will be posted soon! Breeders Sweepstakes. $6500 Too late! Copper has found his lifetime match with Beth Marshall of WV! Beth says to be sure to email her for information on Firedance Farms Horses! firstname.lastname@example.org

(my little Russian 100 mile mare got 1st..not fair!) He did his second 50 in Oct and received high vet score! Dre is a 16h 7 year old black bay gelding. 3/4 Arab, 1/4 Saddlebred.This horse is fantastic and definitely international caliber. Dre is BIG; truely 16h barefooted and big boned, but not bulky. Dre will be very competitive and his match is someone who really wants to be competitive as well. He is not a spooky horse and is easy to control but he is big and strong and not for the feint of heart! We will not sell him to someone who wants to 'win now' but to someone who wants to bring him along slowly and be competitive in the long run. This is your chance to win the AHA championship 1/2 Arab and make some money! Dre has it all, not only is he absolutely stunningly gorgeous, he is extremely tough, he loves people, very willing to please, and is Breeders Sweepstakes! He is also extremely well trained (from Scottsdale) in Hunter Pleasure! $8000 Dre has found his lifetime partner with Brianne Brault, of Alberta, Canada! We are so happy for them!

Feel free to email Kathy about buying Firedance Farms Horses long distance! email@example.com
J-S Marshaldually: 12 year old 15.1 h grey gelding. He is 7/8 Polish (Queens Liege+ out of an imported LOTNY dtr). We had Marshall when he was younger and did several 50s on him. He was an outstanding 100 mile potential horse. His partner doesn't ride anymore and asked that we get him back into an endurance home. He has most definitely not been overridden! We've brought him back in training and he is the same wonderful horse he has always been. I just did a 50 on him Oct. 16th and he did excellent, finishing with a 44/48 CRI! Marshall is a very kind horse and not a spook. If you are looking for a solid finisher who is very smooth and has that wonderful relaxed lope, he is a great horse.

Simply Magik: wow! Is the only thing anyone can say when they see this horse! 16.1h+ grey 6 year old half Arabian half Dutch (Majesteit KWPN). Magik is trained to do some second level dressage and he is awesome! He is extremely well behaved and a very good learner. He has done one 25. The Dutch gives him bigger bone than a purebred, but he is not a heavy horse. He has the most unbelievable trot you will ever ride! This horse will definitely compete with the very best! Breeders Sweepstakes. $8000 Well I guess you won't have to compete against him, as he is off to Jordan as well!!!
It is with much soul searching that we are offering our senior stallion, Paradoxx, for sale. Paradoxx is the epitome of what we strive for in our Russian breeding. He is a massive coming five year old, and a gorgeous dapple grey. He is over 15.3 and will wear a size 2 shoe. He is truly an outstanding horse and really needs to be in a place where he will be used. We just don't have the number of mares to breed to him to justify keeping such a horse. He needs to go where he will be used, at a larger breeding facility and/or where someone will show him sporthorse in hand. He is far too good of a horse just to 'waste away' at our small facility. Price is not as much of a consideration as a place where he will be used. We will reserve two breedings a year. See NAALO below as his first offspring.
Paradoxx has gone to the Royal Palace in Jordan! I think he will show his real potential under Princess Alia Al Hussein's capable ownership! UPDATE: Paradoxx is now called Wisdom and just did his first endurance ride in April!
