I am now the US rep for the Sommer Spirit DS saddle from Germany! You've never ridden in anything like this!Sommer Spirit DS The Saddle for YOUR lifetime!
Amber Burton and Ffire Storm+
We pride ourselves in selling the very best horses for endurance riding. They all have great trots, fast walks, no spooks, excellent conformation, good backs, very people oriented and tractable, and of course, very pretty! Most are Russian or Russian crosses, but occasionally we find others too good to pass up! References available from happy clients! Firedance Farms Arabians is located one hour south of Tulsa, Oklahoma and is owned by Louise & Bruce Burton. We own and stand the stallions Poseidon Bay and Naalo. contact us
