MEET THE FAMILY

SPIRIT

 

SPIRIT (her Native name is CHANTE NUPA, meaning 2 Hearts) and she is 6 years old.She is a Mustang that was rescued out of the wild at a year old. We have trained her to be ridden and she is a sweetheart. She is what is known as a Spanish-Barb Mustang. This means when the Spanish came over in the 1500's they introduced this horse to our country. She has zebra stripes on the back of her legs, which is indicative of the Spanish-Barb Mustangs. These are the kind of horses roaming our country today that are free and wild. A vestige of our past and our history.
