 At the M Bar D Ranch we raise train and show quality Appaloosas. Our purpose is to bring out the best in all our horses whether in the show pen or on the trail.
We offer training and horses for sale. Any breed is welcome for training.

This is a picture of myself and WK Riptide with owner Dave Crowell. Riptide was second in the nation during his yearling year in Hunter In Hand Stallions(pictured as a long yearling). He is now standing at Wounded Knee Appaloosas in Avon, IL.
 
2011 brings a new Journey for WK Riptide! He has been leased toTracy Rowley and will be showing in Huntseat! I'm so excited for him and I hear he gets to cover some mares for them too.

WK Ripped N Torn aka Razer is a 2010 gelding sired by WK Riptide out of an Impressive Andrew mare N/N. He has just been advanced to regular papers! He is FPD at 87%. Razer had his first Appaloosa show in June. It was a single judge show so great for a first time out. He did wonderfully. Out of 6 Hunter in Hand geldings he placed 2nd! He was the only yearling. In Halter yearlings he took first and gained half a halter point. We are looking forward to the IL State Fair show July 20th where he will compete again in Hunter in Hand and Halter classes.

April 4th update!
Justy foaled a beautiful colored bay dun colt with dorsal and leg barring out of WK Riptide on March 18th. His barn name is Ninja. He's quite the spitfire.
And Joelle foaled the darling of the ranchette, a red dun filly- Patient Moon, barn name Patience. She is solid right now but is showing characteristics. We are in love.

Whats new? Well we moved last year to a much larger property so that we could expand our family and our farm. The horses are loving all the room and so are the kids. My nephew Kyle has even moved in with us.
On a sad note we had to put my barrel horse Skippy King aka Skipper down in April. He had a serious case of EPM that we could not bring him out of. He was our family horse and he is missed every day.
On a happy note Joelle and Justy have both been exposed to WK Riptide for Feb/March 2011 foals. This is exciting for us since it has been several years since we have bred mares.
We lost Skipper but gained a new herd member. Razer (WK Ripped n Torn) is a son of yearling son of WK Riptide  and Andrews Poteet Lady. Hes a tall boy with great legs and such a nice attitude. He will show HIH until he starts under saddle as my next barrel prospect. He was born solid but lo and behold is roaning like crazy. I cant wait til he starts to shed his winter coat.
