These horses are the future of Travis Quarter Horses. You'll find the young ones we ride - ages 2-4 - on this page. Check out our current and future projects!
Before we introduce our current and future projects, we need to give credit where credit's due. Clarice is our 10-year-old donkey that breaks our colts to lead. Once we tie young colts to Clarice, it only takes a day or so for them to realize it's her way or the highway. Thanks to Clarice, we can make contact with the colts early to help them become familiar with us. She does a lot for us, and doesn't get enough credit for the good work she does.
TF Can cans drifter (rodeo)
Rodeo is a 2019 gelding out of Claytons Can Can and by Claytons Blue Train, rode by Mallory Lents. Rodeo has incredible bloodlines, as he is from one of our favorite broodmares and Claytons Blue Train. If he's anything like the stallion he's by, Ike is going to be very versatile. The first day we got Rodeo back from trainer & good friend, Chris French, Bruce moved a group of cows. He was so surprised at how this coming 3-year-old would reach out and nip the cows to hurry them along. Mallory plans to continue the cattle work on this gelding, and will enter him in the 2023 Travis Quarter Horses Futurity.

This beautiful 2020 gelding is out of Claytons Can Can by Claytons Blue Train. If you know Travis Quarter Horses, you know we love the colts out of Claytons Can Can. This one is no exception. Bruce started riding this gelding during the spring of 2022, and has been thoroughly impressed at his progress. As a two-year-old, he doesn't hesitate to reach down and nudge a slow calf along with a little nibble, as shown in the photo above. His barn name, "Bob" comes from his bobtail, but if he ends up growing out his tail & becomes a good-using gelding, Bruce says he'll call him "Robert" instead. Bruce says he's "the best two-year-old I've ever rode," but he might say that about any young colt he rides. We can't wait to watch this young gelding grow.
