Bishop (show name "King's Knight) is an 18-year-old quarter horse gelding. He originally came from a paint horse farm, where the breeder wanted to sell him because he didn’t quite have the ideal paint horse pattern. Prior to his time as part of the Saddleback family, Bishop was a foxhunter with his buddy of fourteen years, Brady, who was the SBE school horse of the month in October! Bishop and Brady were both used as whip horses, however, Bishop was always overly excited to do his job. His favorite thing to do as a whip horse would be to chase the stray hounds or to stop a group of hounds. Bishop has proven to be very athletic and agile and will jump just about anything if you tell him to.
He has a very vibrant and humorous personality and is aware of his dashingly good looks! Bishop is also a very quick learner but he sometimes likes to have a little fun. He can be very playful and loves to give hugs and nuzzle you with his nose if you have some downtime in the cross ties. This black beauty has an incredibly kind personality and is always eager to please! Jumps everything and walks down the lines (super easy step) and the shows! Bishop became one of our beloved school horses in 2016 and is now available for leasing, lessons, and showing! Although new to the Hunter/Jumper shows starting Fall 2017, he won multiple awards in the 2'3 AC Beginner at local schooling shows, as well as Year End awards for 2017!
