As Nature Intended
Raised in herds with natural terrain, the Paddle River, forest, hills and pasture, Touchstone horses have the opportunity to grow up as nature intended resulting in strong bones, sound minds and athletic bodies.
The natural socialization of the herd is the best preparation for respectful learning in later life. We treat our horses as horses and try to maintain their natural curiosity and happy state of mind. Although performance is the ultimate goal, the greatest testament is happy owners and happy horses.
