The Rickman Family…

A Passion Started Years Ago

And Continues Today

Bryant and Darlene Rickman have dedicated 45 plus years sharing the unique, historical story of the Colonial Spanish Horse.  A story that would have ended long ago without the determination of the Rickman family, and others who share their passion. 

The History…

Gilbert H. Jones knew the importance of this breed of horse long before most of us ever heard of them. As a young man he realized the significance the Colonial Spanish Horse played in America’s history.

Gilbert spent a lifetime researching books and reading everything he could find to learn all he could about the Spanish Mustang – Colonial Spanish Horse.  Today the notes Gilbert wrote in the side-bars and margins, in his hand, within those same books and magazines are cherished dearly.
