Gobbler Roost Ranch
Jim & Judy Leek

by Mary Marshall

The Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse has become a new and exciting venture for equestrians Jim and Judy Leek of Gobbler Roost Ranch in Cedar Creek, Texas.

The Leek’s own and promote a string of exciting show horses and stallions that are boarded and trained at Prince Albert Stables in Prestonsburg, Kentucky.




"The Leeks are great supporters of the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse," said Sue Wells, manager of Prince Albert Stables. "They have an outstanding show string, and have become devoted to the breed. They love showing and have really become involved in the KMSHA as owners of top class Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horses."

J.T.’s Pride, a dark chocolate stallion with a flax mane and tail, is a member of the prestigious Leek show string, and also stands at stud at Prince Albert Stables. He is currently the top five-year-old in show pleasure.

The undefeated three-year-old park mare J.L.’s All That Jazz, the undefeated show pleasure stallion Sudden Black Flash, and The Total Package are all members of the elite Leek show string that resides at Prince Albert Stables. They are looking forward to competing their two-year-old stallion, Chocolate’s Steppin Out, next year at KMSHA shows.

The six-year-old stallion, Hit The Big Time, caught the eye of Jim and Judy while visiting in Monroe, Georgia, in February. They loved his size, temperament, and his wonderful gait. The Leek’s decided to purchase this magnificent stallion after talking to Wells and trainer Josh Murdock. Watch for Hit The Big Time at all the shows!

"The Leek’s have outstanding horses," said Wells. "They love the natural gait, beauty, and temperament of the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse."
