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.
Tf Claytons romeo (Boone)
Boone is a 2018 gelding out of Sah Zans Lady Chick by Claytons Romeo JR, rode by Tristan Travis. Boone has a great mind and has been very easy for Tristan Travis to break. Even at 4-years-old, this gelding is relatively consistent every time Tristan jumps on him. Whether it's been 2 days or 2 weeks since he's been rode, Boone doesn't put up much of a fight. He is taking to cattle very well and we are excited to watch Tristan shoot off of him in the future. Like Jamie, Tristan plans to enter this horse in the Travis Quarter Horses Futurity in 2022.
TF Dash for hazer (jill)
Jill is a 2018 mare out of Hazers Driftin Katy and by Flash One, rode by Dave Travis. Because she's by Flash One, we expect this mare to be fast. Dave has worked this horse with cattle on his farm, and has even started shooting off of her this year. He entered the 2022 Travis Quarter Horses Futurity and impressed all of us! We're sure this team will be a force to be reckoned with, and we can't wait to watch this young horse grow!
tf roan train (bob)
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.
Jr Chunky seventeen (Jack)
Jack is a 2018 gelding out of JR Joe Two by JR Fairfax Oakwood, rode by Connor Travis. This horse is very calm with a great mind. When Connor was breaking this horse in the summer of 2020, Connor was able to rub a large coat all over Jack without him even flinching. He is going to be a great cattle horse paired with speed for shooting and a sound mind. Connor & Jack have already been laying down 1D times during the 2022 mounted shooting season, even landing second overall at the Travis Auto & Truck shoot in May of 2022. Keep an eye out for this pair in the 2022 Travis Quarter Horses Futurity contest!
TF Driftin Mesquite (Rusty)
Rusty is a 2018 gelding out of TF Senecas Mesquite by CJ Driftin Hancock, rode by Adam Travis. Adam has worked this horse with cattle and around our mounted shooting events. Just like CJ Driftin Hancock, this gelding has been easy to break and is relatively calm. He works well with cattle and doesn't fuss much with the sound of gunshots, which will be a great asset for the 2022 Travis Quarter Horse Futurity contest. Rusty is going to make Adam a great horse, unless one of his kids steals him!
Bo is a 2018 grade gelding out of our only grademare, Lilly, and by Flash One, rode by Jake Travis. This horse is going to be fast. He is quick getting around cattle and looks to be very fast in the arena as well. Jake plans to enter him in the 2022 Travis Quarter Horse Futurity contest, and we truly enjoy seeing Jake work with Bo.
