Corinthian’s Crimson Hunt aka “Handsome”

Handsome and Leah

A twelve-year-old Appaloosa and Thoroughbred cross, Handsome is an attractive gentleman! He is a multiple top ten National Appaloosa Champion, experienced in the disciplines of Hunt Seat, lower-level jumping, and Western riding. He is currently being trained for fox hunting, as well as Dressage.

Handsome is a calm mount with a sweet disposition who has a little bit of spunk at just the right times. At sixteen hands and willing to please, Handsome’s sweet nature is wonderful for any level rider.

Ken Okken, Hunter, Jumper, Equitation Trainer

I currently teach all aspects of Equitation, Hunters and Jumpers with an emphasis on time proven horsemanship. My emphasis is on horse care, health and well-being first. My teaching stresses a balanced seat, kind, following hands, correct upper body and proper equitation at all times. I instruct that “proper position creates proper movement”. This prepares the rider to adapt to any situation and any horse.

Being a USEF (The United States Equestrian Federation) Judge for over 20 years gives me the experience of knowing how to pick a winner in the ring which gives me helpful insight as to how to prepare my students and horse to achieve that goal.
