The Brush Poppin' Trailride is taking a break for the 2019 Trail ride season. Thank you all for your continued interest. It will be strange to have this weekend available as we've been 50+ years of doing this ride on the first weekend of October. Please make some time to enjoy a horseback ride that weekend with friends and family with out us this year.

We are 2nd , 3rd, and 4th generation Appaloosa & Quarter horse breeders. We have continued the breeding program of Sylvia's father, Gordon Cox, who was one of the first Appaloosa breeders in the state of Minnesota.
We breed for quality in conformation, disposition and color. Our horses are imprinted as foals, ready to go on and make a marvelous performance partner.

shows us daily in what condition we are. If we get involved with horses, we have a great chance of finding a friend and partner, that will always be honest with us. Admirable is especially their goodwill with us humans. A big and powerful animal, much stronger than us, lets us lead them so trustingly. So let's always be aware of that and encounter our horses with gratitude and respect.

...naturally in unison.
is capable of taking care of his surroundings. Such as also of his horse, which depends on us to give him an adequate housing. On the one hand they need the freedom of movement to live up to their excercising standards, the correct feeding as well as other animals as companions. On the other hand we are responsible to care for our domesticated animal by using our knowledge and intellect.
When we take our responsibility to take good care of our horses, they will give us all the things we love in them. Elegance, power, enjoyment, affection, respect and gratitude - to only name a few. Only by doing so, we allow the horse to commit to a bond with us. This bond allows us to learn, play and work together without harming each other.
