Indian Artbeat Foal Update: Indy

December 4th, 2014

Recently received this update about a Indy, an Indian Artbeat (aka Stilts) foal …

Marie,
 
I am the lady west of St. Louis that has two of Stilts babies from my paint mare and wanted to update you on the colt who is 2 now.
 
Indy is in training with Wade and Laura Spell of Spell Pleasure horses and after a month of riding they are VERY IMPRESSED with him.  Wade said to me I not only like him I really like him.  He has a lot of potential.
 
They were impressed with him being so big riding in a smaller round pen where they start colts in such a natural, slow legged lope.  They know I want to show him but Laura has already expressed interest in “maybe we can share showing him”.  She just returned from the Paint World Show and was World Champion in the Green HUS and the horse that was Reserve WC in the class she also trained.  She was also Reserve WC in Jr HUS, so Indy will be in good hands.
 
I am excited about what may be coming down the road for Indy and myself.  I will keep you updated on how things go and if we get to the point of will send information and pictures.
 
Linda K
