Directly imported from the green hills of Ireland
to the rugged American West
versatile Irish Cobs
Irish Cobs are wonderful horses. They were originally used to pull the wagons or vardas used by the gypsies or travelers that roamed Ireland. They needed to be strong enough to work all day pulling a wagon but they also needed to be handy enough to ride. One of the other requirements was they needed to be docile enough that they would not hurt small children and other animals that would be around them at the camps. Thus the horse that we have today.
Cobs are great first horses because they are gentle and they come in all sizes from short to tall to fit children and adults. They are easy to work with and like to be around people. They are gorgeous to look at, but are versatile enough that they can do well in any discipline you put them in. Many people think they are just for show or can only hack or do trail riding. This is not the case. They love to learn and please and if given the chance will do well with whatever you want to teach them and look absolutely gorgeous doing it. They have been shown to do well in show jumping, dressage, vaulting and many other disciplines and mine are doing well in western activities.
I do not find that they are any harder to keep looking good than my Quarter Horses. Most of them love to be groomed almost as if they know how beautiful they will be when they are done. Even if you are not using them everyday a quick brush through of mane, tail and feathers every other day or so keeps them tangle free and looking good.
2 year old Buckskin Gelding--AVAILABLE
Jet Set is a direct Irish Import. Gorgeous to look at and with wonderful movement. He is a dark buckskin with just enough chrome to make him stand out. At a mature height of 15 to 15.2 hands he should excel in any discipline or just be a solid all trail horse. He is friendly and likes attention. If not sold he will be started with bitting up, saddled and line driven. None of my horses are started under saddle until they are three.
AVAILABLE------ Meet Cairnview Idaho (AKA Tater Tot) a 3 year old bay Irish Cob gelding. He is a direct Irish Import. Currently he stands at 14.2 but might grow a bit more. He would make a nice horse for a smaller adult or a child. He is currently being worked line driving with a bit and saddle but will move on to riding shortly. His has the presence to be a standout and is very eye catching when he moves.

He is currently working on becoming an all around horse before we begin to specialize. He is NOT FOR SALELearn More
Billy is a super sweet little bay cob. He's only 14.1 hands but he is all personality and try. He really wants to please. He's game to try anything though he might have to consider it for a bit. He's still young so has lots of time to learn. He is working on a program that will make you laugh. Keep watching for it. He is NOT FOR SALE.Learn More
An extremely nice two year old filly. She is doing basic ground work at this time as she grows. Such a sweetheart. She thinks she is a puppy and follows me where ever I go and comes at a run to the fence to greet me if she sees me outside.
June is everything one could ask for in a 2 year old filly. She is not only super smart but really wants to please. She is game to try anything and has the best of both worlds in movement. She can be as quick and agile as a cat and then turn into a horse with dressage movements. I am expecting great things from her.
