Consorto PL is a 5 year old Lusitano stallion with mostly Viega lines imported from Brazil. Lucitanos are known for their bull fighting ability, and are highly athletic. Consorto has their wonderful athleticism, and has a fantastic temperament and incredible versatility. Consorto has only been halter broke and started under saddle just over a year. He is training for three-day eventing; is broke to drive; works at liberty; and is a great trail horse. He is handled and ridden by children (a testament to his disposition) and will have his first foal on the ground in February, 2013. He is currently boarded at Showcase Equestrian Center in Eads, TN, but he travels to White Oak Farm in Atoka, TN for collection for breeding.
Dual Stitch is a 2005 bay roan Stallion owned by Angie and Robert Ferrell, Ferrell Performance Horses, Lexington, TN www.ferrellperformancehorses.com
Dual Stitch is an NCHA Money Earner. (Almost all the money won by Robert Ferrell, an amateur; we have also done most of his training). Stitch is so laid back and a great minded stud, that he is now teaching Angie how to cut, as well as taking Robert farther and winning money.
The Dixie Nationals (March 2012) was a huge show for all of us, Robert in particular. His last run of the day was at 1:00 am, not the best time of day for either rider or horse. But our boy Stitch, who is used to being tucked in his stall at that time, all in all had a good run. We got a lot of interest in people wanting to breed to him.
In 2012 Robert won the $2000 limited rider champion with the Northeast Mississippi Cutting Horse Association. He made the Dixie Nationals as well as the Eastern Nationals! This year, 2013, we plan to go to Eastern Nationals and, hopefully, add to Stitch’s winnings.

Ivory Pal is a golden palomino champion Tennessee Walking Horse stallion, owned, trained, and loved by Rafael Valle. He is an extraordinary performer and partner with exceptionally great temperament. This amazing stallion performs bitless and barefoot and even has a new book, his own original theme song, a music video, and his own Facebook page boasting over 30,000 fans. Ivory Pal is available for stud fee - Private Treaty.
The book, Ivory Pal: Born To Fly Higher by Cindy McCauley, tells the story of the Tennessee Walking Horse on whom trainers had tried all the "traditional" Tennessee Walking Horse training techniques - the whips, the padded shoes, and more. Nothing worked with this young horse, not even when his rider angrily hit his head with a whip to get his attention. Try as they might, the trainers could not get Ivory Pal to comply. The palomino colt had simply quit - given up. He became a show horse reject!
Then one glorious day everything changed in his life and in the life of his new compassionate owner and trainer Rafael Valle. “Ivory Pal has taught me some invaluable lessons that have enriched my life beyond measure and made me a better person. Ivory Pal has taught me the importance of patience, humility, forgiveness, unconditional love, living each moment to the fullest, perseverance, and respect and love for all living things. That is why when people refer to me as Ivory Pal’s trainer, I quickly note that I am not his trainer, but rather his partner,” saidRafael Valle.
