A favorite of the performers and students is King, a 2001 American Paint Horse. Trixie Chicks owner and performer Kelsey Lauberth describes him as “the horse of many trick riders,” because his steady nature makes him their go-to lesson mount. This attention-loving steed enjoys performing, but he never forgets to take care of his riders. Whether his job is to help thrill an audience, or boost a beginner trick rider’s confidence, King is always up for the task.
When your job involves doing incredible feats on (and around & under!) a galloping horse, there’s no better partner than King!
