Sleipnir Explorer is at the 2011 Grand National Morgan Horse Show:

Our granddaughter, Amber McGee, and our 2005 Bay gelding, Sleipnir Explorer (B-L Rhinestone Kid x May’s Sweetie) have made their way to Oklahoma City, OK for the Morgan Horse Grand National Horse Show.

They have been training with Sue (and Chris) Nerland, of Lancer Stables/R’surene Morgans, and have had a solid show season this year, their second year of Class A rated morgan horse shows. Sue is imparting her wealth of knowledge and experience to Amber. This year they have shown at the Dixie Cup, Southern States Regional, Kentucky Bluegrass Classic, and the Liberty United Classic Horse Shows.

Amber has been S. Explorer’s trainer from the beginning. She has had professional coaching from several well known morgan horse people; but she has done virtually all the hands on work herself.

Explorer is following in the fine tradition of people friendly, athletic, intelligent “Family Show Horses: Showy Family Horses” that has been our breeding philosophy since the birth of our first two family show horse geldings, Sleipnir Valhalla (UVM Viking x UC Spicy Lass) and Sleipnir Selebrity (Donnybrook Celebrity x UC Spicy Lass) in the 1980’s.

Amber and Explorer are entered in several classes at the Grand National. Elizabeth or I will attach a list of their classes to the comments on the blog. It is possible to watch the entire GN in real time online. Amber has been working Explorer Hunt Seat, but he would do equally well at Saddle Seat or Dressage. He also has worn Western tack.

Sleipnir Explorer is just one of several of our terrific geldings. We also have Sleipnir Celestial Array (Bay), Sleipnir Fieldstone (Bay), Sleipnir Double Feature (Chestnut), and Sleipnir Resonance (Chestnut) available, as well as some very nice Black geldings available from friends of ours. All are very people friendly, athletic, intelligent, with good conformation and no vices. All are offered for sale. Most all of our horses would be equally at home in a national caliber show ring or a family field. Almost all prefer carrots to apples.
