The Money Man

The Colletts of Sunset Ridge have been breeding, riding, and showing Mountain horses for several years.  Being a small farm, they never imagined there would be a stallion who would have a place in their heart and lives like their wonderful Kentucky Mountain stallion, Stroker, however, one is getting very close.

Since the Colletts purchased this three month old, chocolate colt from their friend and neighbor, Victor Hall, the colt has been making his place in their lives. From the time it played in the fields with the other horses, to going to a few shows in 2004 as a weanling and winning some blue ribbons, to the phone calls from their trainer, Greg Brewer, saying, He sure is doing good!! to Im starting to feel it!! , to the next phone call saying, Youve got to come watch, I believe this one is going to make it.

Ever since then Money Man has been hitting the show ring, and has never failed to catch the eye of his audience. From gaining blue ribbons at the Spring Jubilee at the Horse Park to winning the blue again at the state show at Harrodsburg. He has also won the two-year-old class at the Drill Team Show in Owingsville, the Key Club Show in Prestonsburg, and the Summer Classic in West Liberty.

It is hard to believe that this is only the beginning for Its Just Money, A.K.A., The Money Man. He is looking forward to showing at the 2nd Annual Kentucky Mountain International Show!! Also look for Madison on his mom, Black Satin, in the ring!!
