Streakin Down The Alley - SOLD! Thank you Casey!!
Now available for purchase - Streakin Down The Alley!
With a high caliber pedigree that's packed with performing superstars, this 3 year old filly has the athletic ability and mind to take you as far as you want to go. She's been on the barrel pattern for a year with a professional trainer and started right. Ally was allowed to begin speeding things up on the pattern when she turned 3 this spring and began being extensively hauled to prepare her for futurities. She has exhibitioned in over a dozen different arenas, day and night, big arenas, and indoor pens, and is going smooth and steady. Ally is currently cruising an 18, and has been faster EVERY single time she exhibitions without fail (see video to watch a compilation of her exhibtions this year). Ally has NOT been entered in a race to ensure she didn't win a check and lose her opportunity to run in futurities! We are very excited to see where this talented filly will go in her career and are hoping to put her with a card holder, or someone on their way there to watch her make it big. She is right on track for her 4 year old futurity year. This mare isn't expected to be anything but an incredible 1D futurity horse, and later on a pro rodeo horse with her excellent conformation and strong bone structure. Greats in her AQHA pedigree include: Streakin La Jolla, Margin Of Cash, Raise Your Glass, Dash For Cash, Flit Five, Mr San Peppy, Three Ohs and Go Man Go, just to name a few. With a pedigree like that, her success as a competitor will be complimented by her quality pedigree as a broodmare after she's done her time competing.
Ally is currently 15.1 hands, UTD on deworming, coggins, vaccinations, and just had a trim. Great hooves, smooth legs, no bad habits or vices, and doesn't need medications or supplements. Easy keeper, looks amazing and muscular, hauls great, eats and drinks on the road, stands tied calmly for hours. She rides beautifully, well broke with an easy going attitude and an explosive sprint speed when asked like her G1 si93 racing sire. Ally loves to run and makes it look effortless. She is also a very nice turner thanks to the small line of Hall Of Fame cow horses on her dam's side.
Being sold for no fault of her own. She was purchased last summer purely as a project horse, and it has been a privilege working with this personable and talented filly.
Contact me for more information or to schedule a time to meet her! She's ready to start Streakin Down The Alley!
Kate - For Sale SOLD
This is a mare that can talk the talk and walk the walk! Kate is very well broke with a great handle. Spins, big stops, can back up back, great rollbacks, slow lopes, can really move out, and neck reins beautifully. She has roped, done trail rides and parades. Owner sadly cannot afford horses anymore. He has owned her for years and taken excellent care of her.
Kate is 13 years old, 15.1 hands and about as chunky as they come. Looks like a competitive Header, with excellent muscle. She'll tone it down for intermediate riders, or show off her great handle to experienced riders and everything in between. For those of you that look at horses more as companions than machines, you'll be glad to know that Kate has a neat personality. While she is all business under saddle, Kate nickers and coos to certain commands, when you walk up to her, and puts on a show for feeding time. It's adorable! She sounds like the horses in the old westerns with sound effects to make them talkative. We've never had one like this in all of our years of training!
The picture doesn't show it clearly, but Kate has a beautiful bay roan coat, with 4 socks, a thin blaze, and frosting on her tail. She's quite the looker! No known health or soundness issues, vices, etc. Just a nice, solid riding horse.

Two Socks - Gelding SOLD To A Great Home! Thank you!
This is a very well mannered and sweet riding gelding. He has been professionally trained and ridden for years by many riders, teens and adults, intermediate and up. He has nice gaits, neck reins, a big stop, pivots, and backs up nicely. Moderate in energy, with a temperament that will only go your speed, when asked. He can be a confidence builder for one rider, and then a fun go-lope-around working horse for another. Purely a gem.
Two Socks is 15.1 hands and stocky, and has a gorgeous true black coat that stays around even in the summer! He's an eye catcher you can ride in the arena, down the trail, down the road, and even to the corner store. Easy to load in and out of a trailer, loves a bath and to be groomed, picks up his hooves with ease and great for the barefoot trimmer.
He couldn't care less about bags and tarps all over him and around him, ponys and you can pony off of him, has had roping training and knows the barrel pattern at a trot/lope (could easily go be a fun playday horse with practice.) Two Socks is a willing and good minded, a mature 15 year old that has quite the all-around set of skills. He is sound with barefoot hooves and has never taken a lame step. In addition, Two Socks is an easy keeper with no known allergies, soundness issues and no vices. Vet checks are welcome.
Current on coggins, hoof care and vaccinations, and he is being sold for no fault of his own. Contact us for more information or to set up a time to come meet this sweet fella!
For now, here's a ONE TAKE video of Two Socks in action! https://youtu.be/TNed9JJ1EHI
Sonora - SOLD To A Great Home! Thank you, Juliana!
Stunning 7 year old paint mare with incredibly smooth gaits and a people loving personality.
This gorgeous sabino/paint mare looks almost like a strawberry roan with flaxen and paint markings. She’s as easy on the eyes as she is to ride with her comfortable, slow and smooth gaits. Sonora would be a perfect pleasure or trail riding mare for just about anybody... Stout but not too tall, right at 15.1 hands, and her easy going demeanor and slow gaits would be a perk to anyone who lacks confidence with speed. Her favorite speed is slow, yet she’ll show off her sitting jog and slow lope if you ask. She’d probably make an excellent dressage, western pleasure or competitive trail class horse as well. She is currently working on western dressage patterns and finesse!
Sonora has ridden english and western and could go either way. She rides beautifully in a bitless bridle, too! She is a confident girl, not scared of anything and we’ve really tested the limits! Plastic bags, tarps, kids, dogs, cats, mini ponies, vehicles and noisy trailers, clippers, winter blankets, loads in new trailers with ease, loves a bath, stands tied nicely, etc. Nothing phases her!
If you’re wondering if this sounds too good to be true, it’s not. Sonora is being sold for no fault of her own, and has been a great horse for her owner who is just going through some major life struggles. Sonora would be listed for significantly more if she didn’t have sunburn scars on her muzzle (see photos). We are pricing her to reflect that, even though we feel there’s a very good chance some skin-quality focused care would make them hard to even see, if someone desired. While she hasn’t had any sunburning issues with us, the previous owner didn’t have a shelter or trees in her paddock.
Sonora does well around the geldings, and even rides nicely with our stallion right by the arena (as seen in video). She’s an easy keeper, and in great shape. Has nice barefoot hooves that don’t require shoes, and doesn’t need any supplements. No vices, doesn’t crib or stall weave, etc. An all around nice horse with a great handle, and a great been-there-done-that confident mind, at just 7 years old. Many, many more riding years ahead for this beautiful girl.
A good home is a must! Contact me for more information. For now, here’s a video! https://youtu.be/GWi4vhsE7Bg
Searching for a great home for this sweet and beautiful gelding. His owners are only parting with him because they lost their other horse and he was now alone. Cash is 14 years old, a nice 15.0 hands and is quite the eye catcher. This gelding rides and could go any direction.
Offering for sale a talented, handsome and sweet TB gelding who has been there done that, for a very reasonable price.
Karazor, Jockey Club Registry number 0529150, also known as “K” is a 2005 model bay gelding that stands proudly at 16.2 hands. He has a gorgeous stature, with excellent conformation, and is a jaw dropping mover under saddle. K has been professionally trained, competed and shown in dressage, has won ribbons and won shows. In 2009 as a 4 year old, K ran on the track, but that wasn’t his forte. With his calm demeanor, that doesn’t surprise me! K ran 4 races as a 4 year old, winning $580 in total, and retired from racing with a small bone chip in his knee. K had surgery to remove the bone chip, and all was well so he went on to compete in dressage for years to come, without an issue.
K would be excellent for just about any level of rider. He’ll go slow and steady and just walk around with a rider on a lose rein, or put him with an experienced rider who knows dressage and he can really show off his skills - with gorgeous collection and impulsion at all 3 gaits, quarter passes and half passes. Really something special to watch.
This handsome big gelding is willing, loves attention, and has the cutest personality. He’ll pick up his feed bucket before feeding time, play with the hose, rub on you lightly for attention, follow you around, and so much more.
Hauls great, trail rides, has no known health or soundness issues, and no vices. Just an all around great fella who could go Western, English, compete in dressage, go down the trail or just be a fun riding horse for somebody. Only selling for personal reasons...He’s a great horse, deserving of a great home.

Valentine Lil Foot SOLD
Stella is a true BLUE roan, with absolutely no brown to her coat. She is a black black with heavy roan giving her a silver sheen. Her color and 16.1 hands with a huge body structure catches the eyes of those around her everywhere we go.
Stella has over a year of professional training collectively, being started by the great roping training Raul Hernandez then finished out by Unique Horsemanship. To top off her experiences, she just received 30 days of barrel training with multiple arena record holding trainer, Sabrina Alvarez, and is cruising a nice barrel pattern.
Stella has been trail ridden on, worked cows, hauled to barrel races, you name it. She even just had her first exhibitions at the very busy GFR Thanksgiving Classic with a youth rider, and did amazingly. All of this and she's only 6 years old!
This gorgeous mare is about to hit her prime and needs someone to go compete on her really use her potential. Being sold because of personal life reasons, for no fault of her own.
Stella has over 1/2 MILLION in collective earnings over 5 generations, with an average of $5,425 per horse! She has greats in her immediate pedigree like Leo San, Doc Bar, Boon Bar, Peppy San Badger and TWO TIMES Blue Valentine. What a broodmare after you're done using her potential!
Continue her on barrels and let her be a great like Blue Valentine, or exploit her cow sense and excel in team penning, sorting or roping. This big strong mare will get the job done. Adjust your bridle, cinch and breast collar to the largest setting for her slim fit but huge stature and feel her well trained and powerful riding style.
Stella lopes beautiful circles, has a really big stop, spins, does great roll backs and backs up fast. Loads and unloads great, stands tied, for the farrier and for a bath, you name it.
These bloodlines are known for being cold backed, where you have to run them down for a half hour, but that has never been her. Lunge her for 5 mins and you're set. Never bucked with a rider! She's a hot horse, beautifully responsive and has a brain to her. Not mare-ish with a great working attitude.
No vices or health issues. UTD on coggins, vaccinations and hoof care. This is an all-around great horse in one big, beautiful package.
Nova - SOLD
This is one of the best Arabians I've seen in a very long time. Miss Nova is not only gorgeous and built right, but she has a sweet personality too. Very gentle and charismatic. Her beautiful dapple grey coat and great mind would probably make her an excellent pony club horse! But she doesn't necessarily have to go that direction. If you love Arabians but want one on that's medium energy, to just ride around and enjoy, this is your girl. She's passed extensive safety and desensitizing tests, and is just fun to float around on with her gently springing gaits.
Nova's been trail ridden in a halter by her owner, hauls great, LOVES bathes, loads right up into a trailer, great stops, beautiful collection, side passes and pivots.....been there done that. And she's only 7! Nova also jumps 1 meter jumps with very little training. Just a cute little 14.2hh girl. Not mareish, easy going, low maintenance. Clean legs, never seen a lame step.
Vet checks welcome.
For riders intermediate and up. $3,000.
Triumph - Sold
Rodeo prospect!!! This handsome dark gold (even in winter) palomino would make someone an awesome barrel, pole, or roping horse, or all 3! Triumph has hauled, headed and he's currently loping a nice barrel pattern - building a solid foundation on the pattern and just about ready to speed things up.
Triumph is a high energy, responsive gelding that wants to run. But he has a good head on his shoulders. Pretty bold and yet very respectful. He's been started right and rides very nicely. Owner had an accident off of a ladder and can no longer keep him. Would love to see him go in a competitive direction.
Triumph is good at all the little stuff to. He likes baths, loads and unloads nicely, ties for hours, low maintenance to feed, no supplements, never taken a lame step - vet checks welcome. He'd be a heck of a lot more $$$ if he was registered, but unfortunately for us and fortunately for you, his breeder never sent in the paperwork.
This is an opportunity to get a NICE rodeo horse on a budget. Needs a little polishing and he'll be something special. A real favorite at the training barn, this sweet gelding could go any direction with speed and performance! $3,000.
Wow what a horse! Apache is a once in a life time calm and dependable mount suitable for any rider. His continuously low head set, quiet disposition and smooth easy gaits makes him a great prospect for timid riders! Ride professionally? You'll enjoy him too! Apache knows his leg cues, gorgeous collection that has placed in Western Dressage horse shows, and a working attitude that has placed 9th out of 160 riders at a state Competitive Trail competition!
Apache rides through the water and heavy brush. Slow and easy out in the open pastures, pushes cattle like its fun, and has smooth gaits to die for. He hauls great, loves bathes and enjoys getting his hooves trimmed. He's low on the pecking order out in a herd, and acts the same with people. "Yes ma'am!" attitude with no maintenance necessary.
He's barefoot sound with great hooves, an easy keeper just on a round bale, or feed him 2 scoops of grain a day and watch him pack on the muscle. He doesn't have any bad habits or vices and has been nothing but healthy. Never coliced, choked, or gone lame. Just an easy going, easy to care for and VERY easy on the eyes ;) gelding right here. He's 14.3 and 9 years old. That perfect, been there done that age and it shows. He's not afraid of anything, even in my extensive desensitizing program. Such a cool fella right here. Looking for an awesome home! He deserves it. Currently available $4,500.
Hotshot - SOLD
Offering for sale one cool fella! Hotshot is kicking off his barrel racing journey in a big way with a check in his FIRST EVER ENTRY with a rider he'd never ridden with before! This impressive gelding is going to go somewhere!
Hotshot rides beautifully, with a gorgeous slow lope, big stops, finger light neck rein and flying lead changes. He came from a cattle ranch from a younger age where he learned to be one heck of a riding horse with a "yes ma'am" attitude. He's been ridden by about a dozen different riders here with me, and responds well to various riding styles and riding abilities. He's been exhibitioned in nearly a dozen arenas and just started competing. Snag him before the price goes up and finish him out your way!
No issues, no vices, no supplements or injections needed. Holds weight on a round bale!

This filly could go any direction and should go to someone who wants to use her potential. She was a great project for her owner and great show horse, and now it's time for someone to go on with her and give her the time she deserves.

"When I was five years old I started taking riding lessons, and that is when it all started. I didn't have a set path of what I wanted to do on my horse riding venture, however I knew my love for horses was growing, and my parents knew it wasn't something they could just brush off.
At the early age of seven I earned enough money picking up rocks for my parents and neighbors to afford a pair of ponies, which were untrained, unbeknownst to us. By then we had moved to another location, so we didn't have the guidance of a trainer to get us through this experienced... I remember sitting down in front of the TV watching Clinton Anderson's Downunder Horsemanship then running out to work my ponies, and this was my day to day, home-schooled life. Fast forward 2 years and I had trained those ponies up to the point that when I outgrew them in size a year later, one went to a special needs 4 year old to help her learn to walk, and the other went on to pull a cart through children's hospitals. By then, the desire to train had already set in.
So I trained my own horses for the years to follow, and studied every natural horsemanship training book and program I could get my hands on. I took this knowledge and applied it to my horses which I trained for reining, team sorting and penning, competitive trail, western dressage, and eventually, speed events, bringing in dozens of trophies, trophy buckles, trophy tack, checks, and many many blue ribbons.
I began interning whenever I could with natural horsemanship trainers, attending clinics and studying the work of Clinton Anderson, Ken McNabb, Craig Cameron, Chris Cox, Monty Roberts, Buck Brannaman, Kyle Shurig, Carson James, Pat Parelli, Sean Flarida, Tim McQuay, John Lyons, Martha Josey, Dena Kirkpatrick, Bo Hill, Troy Crumrin, Sherry Cervi, Lance Graves, Kay Blandford, Charmaine James, Al Dunning and Bill Dorrance.
From all of these studies and hands on experiences, I developed a program that had the open mindedness to reach into this plethora of knowledge to help a wide range of horses. I strongly believe and still do, that every horse is an individual, and that not every horse fits into a cookie cutter program! I believe that natural horsemanship is the clear way to go, and that when you speak a horse's language and get the attention of a calm mind, they are truly able to reach their full potential, and that's something pretty special.
Along the way I have enjoyed coaching students young and old on how to become better horse men and women, in everything from basic horse handling and riding, to accomplished competitors and certified trainers in my Trainer Training Course.
What good is knowledge if it's not applied? If it's not shared? If it's not used for good? I believe in natural horsemanship. I have seen it change literally thousands of lives and to say I have a passion for experiencing this, is a massive understatement. I take pride in my teachings, and in turning out horses with good, solid foundations, built on understanding and clarity, which gives them a happy, healthier life, where they can be adored by their owners.
I'm Sabrina Alvarez, and this is my training program, Unique Horsemanship."
