We who live here are Thomas, Madlen, Liam and Bea Thorvaldsson. We have many years experience in breeding, traning, showing and ect....



We run a small serious breeding of Appaloosa with a focus on reining, cutting and reined cowhorse in south eastern Sweden about 3 mil north of Karlskrona.


Our own stallion High Scootin Lena compete successfully with Thomas, who is a non pro rider, and he rides mostly in the reined cowhorse and cutting. Madlen trains both riders and horses in most Western disciplines (most reining,cowhorse) but also in jumping and dressage.

Liam is a happy little dot born 07 who has lot´s  of work to do, and it´s never to early to learn he art of riding. Bea is an Aussie (Australian Shepherd) girl born in 09 which we bought to get a little extra help with the cows. She is breed by Tilly Hill, Tina Johansson at Biskopsberg, Karlskrona and it is also she and her daughter Sophie who has taken many of the beautiful pictures on our website.


Then we Isabell Nicklasson to help us with Liam and much more. Our vision and goals that we have are to breed, train and compete with high quality Appaloosa  and offer our customers good horses, good training and a community of horse and cow spirit! We also had the pleasure of getting to know Todd and Juli Fitch in July 2009 who has come to us on several  occasions and competed  "Scooter" and had clinics and we hope to continue to do so in the future.


Madlen is training and showing other peoples horses and gives leasons to riders on there own or on one of our good horses.

Madlen was the NRCHA International regional Winner 2010 in the Ltd Open Hacamore and Aphc World show qualifier in Jr Reining. For more info about getting your horse in training your welcome to call Madlen for more info.
