After finding out that the mare I'm about to get was actually shown by Michelle Macfarlane of Scripps Miramar Ranch, I'm desperate to find a website.. Do they have one??

Wow. That's a blast from my past waaaaaay back when I showed pintos in my teens early 20's. Michelle was a preteen(?) maybe then, maybe a tad older. They always had the top winning saddle seat type horses and always arrived at the shows in style. Their barns were fully decorated and they had a huge staff of people taking care of everything. It was a slice of life for someone like me who had to work for everything when it came to my horses. I was in awe of their beautiful stock.

bump for photos & links
some great parade shots in there
ok i know nothing about saddlebreds. whats the deal? is there really that much money in that market? what kind of showing do u do with a saddlebred? whats with all the photo shoots these people have done? is it for promoting their operation, movies, advertising, what?
Those were very very cool photos. Where on earth did you find all those. Wish there has been more ID on them.
Saddlebreds do usually sell for a good price- IF they are Saddleseat horses. Unfortunately, not a lot of the SB people have opened up to the other disciplines. However, there is a group out there (with a website) for Saddlebreds in Sport. They make great HUS and Jumpers/Hunters.
This farm is a very famous farm with very nice horses. They are always at the huge rose parade or whatever it is. They have a lot of photos out there because they have some exceptional horses.
Yes, they were in the forefront of the pinto ASB. They had gorgeous correct ASBs with fabulous movement. I was lucky enough to see alot of them.
