Rick Wies Stables has shown Walking Horses for many decades in over 10 States and Canada with thousands of wins, many hi-point awards and top honors at all levels.
Unfortunately, we quite showing in 2011 due to the lose of Walking Horse Shows in the Western States. Just not worth the travel cost and time to show in a class of a few horses. It is too bad the younger trainers and owners will not step up and organize shows.
So more mountain trail riding.
