My beautiful Stevey (Lord Steffan) was registered ISR but had lots of Trak blood on his papers. He was one of the most wonderful horses I’ve ever had or worked with. He could a handful, but never doled out more than he thought you could handle. He was my first REAL introduction to Classical Riding. In his later years he was retired and served as a therapy horse for just over a decade! He came home and died peacefully on my farm last fall. He was one in a million and he will be missed by the many people he touched! – Kimberly D.
