|Welcome to Jennifer's Stonehedge Farms, located in beautiful Cedaredge, Colorado (Gateway to Grand Mesa!). Visitors are always welcome to see our horses! We are invoved with the breeding, training and sales of the Rocky Mountain Horse. Our central herd is mostly the chocolate body color with a lighter mane and tail. The horses are also registered with KMSHA, and AGMA (an offshoot of the United Mountain Horse showing association).
Breed Characteristics:: Smooth gait, Good Conformation, and Gentle Temperment. This breed is of a medium build, with sturdy bone structure. They range in height from 14.2 to 16 hands, and can have any solid body color (the chocolate body color and lighter mane and tail being more "fashionable"). The gait these horses possess is a very smooth, ambling four-beat gait (lateral). They make wonderful family horses, and are great on the trail. Once you ride one, you'll be hooked!! We've found that these horses have very quick minds, and are quite easy to train. They really are a "people oriented" horse, that can be your best friend!
I do all of the handling and training of horses at our farm (Bob rides only occasionally), and have had to learn about gaited horses from the ground up!! We've had Rockies since 2001, and have come a long way with the breed---I've only had a handful of lessons from gaited horse trainers in this time! Our horses are really shining these days!! I really enjoy showing as another avenue to play with my horses...but I also love trail riding, and doing things liked judged trail trials (trail rides with judged obstacles on the course). These horses are FUN!! and they're also very dependable. Even the younger horses seem to have a maturity beyond their physical years. They are a must if you're looking for a gentle horse with a smooth ride!!
