Frisco could be intimidating because of his size, but he was an excellent horse for riders of all abilities. In his prime, Frisco showed successfully in the open hunter ring. His last couple of years were spent happily baby-sitting young horses. He died in 2004. We miss him.

Tex is our gentle giant. A product of the breeding program at Tyndall Park, Tex has become a great lesson horse. Very quite and safe for beginner riders, but also a fun and challenging ride for the intermediate rider. He was purchased by Colleen in 2006, and we trust they are having a great time together.
